Onida was silent. It seemed as if there was nothing else to say in that moment. Maybe what he said was right, but it didn't make it hurt any less. Perhaps it was the fact that he was right that made it even more hurtful. Taking a step backwards, Onida opened her mouth to speak. Words didn't come out at first, so she shut her mouth, before opening it again to attempt once more. "I.. Women like me... Yes.." There was a pause. "I... I should be going now. I'm terribly sorry for all of this. Goodbye Major General Suzuki." She managed to stutter before turning swiftly and exiting the office. Heels clicked quickly against the tile flooring as she made her way to the exit of the Rune Knight headquarters. Perhaps it would be best for her to head home for now. Maybe then she could get her mind off of what had just happened.
After that encounter, the blonde haired woman tried her best to avoid Doppo. She found it to be quite difficult, though, considering they shared the same workplace. Perhaps it was petty of her to not speak to him like this, but she just couldn't find any words to say to him. The hole that had been burning through her chest had finally made it's way to her heart, and she couldn't put her finger on the reasoning for it. What he had said about her was right, though, and it had become even more true since that incident. Onida slept with a new man almost every night trying to keep her mind off of everything. It worked during the moment, but as soon as it was over, she got that horrible feeling again. Why had she stooped so low?
One fateful night, though, her entire life would change. It was 4 am on a Tuesday, and Onida had been laying in bed, tossing and turning restlessly. There had been a pain in her stomach since she had gone to bed that night, and she didn't know what was causing it. "Nnghh.. I just want to sleep... I have to be at work in the morning." She groaned to herself, cringing as she placed a hand on her aching belly. Quickly afterwards, her eyes snapped open, and she was flying out of bed, running to the bathroom in her apartment as fast as she possibly could. Falling to the ground, she threw herself over the toilet, the contents of her stomach leaving her as she did so. When it had finally finished, she raised her head, tears streaming from her eyes and her breath ragged. What was going on with her? She had never been sick like this before. Curling up on the floor of her bathroom, all of the feelings she had been struggling with hit her at once. Why were all of these terrible things happening to her? "What did I do to deserve this?" Onida sobbed hoarsely. Laying pitifully on the bathroom floor, the distraught woman cried herself to sleep.
The next day, Onida had decided that she needed to see a doctor, considering she had never really been sick before. She was probably being over dramatic, and it was something extremely common, but for all she knew she was dying. She knew nothing about these human diseases. When she arrived at the doctor's office, the nurse escorted her into a room, where she waited patiently for the doctor to arrive. As she waited, she could feel the nerves bundling up in her stomach. What if she had some fatal disease? She had heard very little about the plague one time from one of her pack members. What if she had that? Sweat beaded and rolled down her forehead as the doctor entered the room. Gulping, Onida reached out a hand for her to shake.
"Hello, Ms. Onida! I am Dr. Silver, and I will be taking a look at you today."
Nodding, Onida responded. "Pleasure to meet you, Doctor."
After conducting the exam, the doctor gave the worried woman that sat on the table a very serious look. "Well, it seems that everything looks normal. I just have a question for you, and I know it is quite personal, so I'll have to ask you to forgive me for being crude... Have you been sexually active recently, ma'am?"
Eyes widening in shock, and cheeks flushing red, Onida looked away, unsure of how exactly to answer. "Well, yes. I have."
The doctor leaned back in the chair she was sitting in, and placed a hand on her chin. "Well, my dear, there is a possibility that you may be pregnant. Of course, we'll conduct some tests, just to be sure."
Onida froze. Pregnant? No... There was no way that she could be pregnant. She had a demanding job, and a chaotic life. No. She couldn't raise kids. She had never even thought of having kids before. Not once. "I... Please, can we test just to be sure?" She asked frantically. The doctor nodded in responce. "Of course."
It had been a week since the visit to the doctor, and Onida had finally built up the courage to walk back into the Rune Knights Headquarters. Her absence from the job was inexcusable, and she was sure to get an earful from the Field Marshall about it, but right now all she could think about was the news she had received. Head down as she advanced, Onida tried to avoid eye-contact with everyone in the building. That was, until she made it to a certain man's office. As she tapped lightly on the door with her knuckles, the woman let out a sigh. "Major General Suzuki... There's something I need to tell you."
