Mai simply sighed as Kat replied this. She could have said a nasty retort, but it would feel hypocritical. She remembered the words of Nothus, about how they were all in the same bind she was, more or less willing didn't matter. They all had their morals- even Helena- and no matter how agreeing they seemed to this mission, surely they didn't like it... Her gaze narrowed on Alexandra as she willingly agreed to accept this 'kitsune' into the group. Her mouth opened, a protest ready to echo out. But then she realized that she had no real opinion about it. Hikari and this woman Kat seemed welcoming, all others seemed defensive, but Mai seemed... neutral. Did she care? The answer emanated 'no' in her mind. Of course she wouldn't care; upon helping this motley group, all that had happened was an insult to her teachings and a mocking to her morals. She could care less what happened to this group... right? She scoffed to herself, not wasting a moment on it anymore and letting out a chuckle to the welcoming of this stumbling citizen. "Well, at least we have bait if trouble comes along," she remarked in the lightest tone she could make for such a twisted comment. She then stopped herself for a moment. Why did I just say that? She shook her head again, directing her gaze past the group and to the castle. Business was business, and already the clock had ticked away long enough. Soon the guards and knights would start dispersing, slowly returning to their original positions in which would definitely not be a good thing to them. She gripped the handle of her blade, going back over to the gates and looking back to the rest. "Everything's clear," she finally said, implying the 'report' of her stakeout, "So let's not waste anymore time. I assume most won't stick around too long to stare at bodies."
