Rei is tying new rope to cordon off the path up to the Lin family compound. Min stands behind her.

Rei: As for your style, I can't really help. Not yet anyway.

Min: S'fine. Don't worry about it. This is just Xiu Mei pushing her "punishment" off on me.

Rei, looking concerned by Min's wording, continues to focus her attention on her work while Min glares off to the side.

Rei: So you aren't mad about getting stuck with this?

Min: Eh, whatever. I haven't really thought about it.

Rei: You didn't really seem surprised.

Min leans further into the rope while Rei continues working off-panel.

Min: I'm not. That's just how she is. If there's something she doesn't want to do, she passes it to me. And if she can't she'll just take it out on me instead.

Rei: So that's where those bruises came from?

Rei gives Min a look of frustrated concern as Min turns and hides her face, embarrassed.

Min: No, she just does that sometimes because I can't stop her. I'm nowhere near her level yet... sorry, but you're the one who got "stuck" with something. Ugh, just forget it.

Touch of Self-Deprecation

Rei's not used to this kind of attitude.
