"If the chick does not break it's shell, the egg will never be hatched!! No, no... that's not it..."
She slouched and huffed in frustration. Nanami tried to remember the words her Onii-sama spoke as the council ascended the elevator, but to no avail. She had spent hours getting ready for the day that was to come, primming and practicing in front of her full-length mirror. As her first day as acting Student Council president, she not only had to look good, she had to know what she was talking about. It was no small task conversing with the likes of Arisugawa-senpai and Kaoru-san. Nanami straightened her posture once more, convinced she had finally remembered the words.
"If the chick does not break it's egg, it will hatch without being in it's shell!!"
Yes, that's it!! She thought to herself, They'll think I'm a total natural...just wait until Onii-sama hears how well I am presiding in his absence!
Nanami smirked at her reflection, and tousled her flaxen tresses once more before heading downstairs.
Mitsuru should be here any moment now..., she thought as she glided down the master staircase, her steps as practiced and graceful as a swan's. The doorbell rang as she reached her final descent. Nanami stepped towards the door, caring not for the formalities of letting the help greet her servant. As she swung the door open, a look of surprise and disgust washed over her face.
Utena Tenjou. What could she possibly want. Hasn't she caused enough grief in our lives?! Her thoughts raced as she stared down the pink-haired intruder, not sure how she should react.
She then remembered what position she held. As the one engaged to the Rose Bride, Utena must remain on the council's side first and foremost.
You must keep your composure, Nanami-san. No matter how you may dislike her, we must have her as an ally.
And she just might have, were it not for her brother's jacket dangling behind Utena's shoulder.
"What's this?? What on earth are you doing with my Onii-sama's jacket?!" Nanami screamed at the girl as she yanked the coat out of her hands, disgusted by this horrid intrusion.
"How many times do I have to tell you to STAY AWAY FROM MY BROTHER!!! WILL YOU PESTS NEVER LISTEN!!" She could feel her cheeks flushing crimson, and her forehead felt as if it were about to burst into flames.
"Well?! What do you have to say for yourself?! What is the meaning of this!!!"
Nanami resisted the urge to strangle her right there, lest she spill blood on her freshly pressed uniform.
