Rei turns and pushes her hair out of her face.

Rei: What? Pfft. Not a chance. He was testing me, not training. I didn't even see his stance... let alone learn the technique. He was kinda behind me when he did it.

Frustrated, Min Hua plops down and continues asking questions.

Min Hua: Some test. Does that kind of thing happen often with you?

Rei: Nope, that was a first.

Min Hua: It doesn't bother you?

Rei: Not so long as I don't think about it too much.

Rei moves closer to Min, leaning against a rock next to the edge of the water. Min crosses her arms guardedly.

Rei: What about you? You've been kinda... touchy. I know we just met, but you can believe me when I say I'm not out to get you.

Min Hua grabs her shoulder and averts her eyes.

Min Hua: Yeah... force of habit.

Rei: Working with you will reinforce everything you grandfather teaches me.

Min Hua: That makes sense... but I still think you're a little crazy.

Rei: I get that a lot.
