"If it isn't my friend, Bloody Mary..."
Mary smiled widely as they entered the gym and Kess approached. Friend? So there was the confirmation she needed. Kess was her friend! How delightful!
She blushed as Kess put her arm around her, giving praises, and had to stifle something else as the girl pulled her roughly. Thoughts were swimming in the young girl's mind. First Kess called her friend and now this? Golly, it was...exciting. She wasn't prepared for such a thing. So she merely laughed awkwardly. "Oh, well, I'm not really all that." Mary began modestly. "Thank you for your kind words, though, f-friend." Mary finished with a small, gentle, smile.
She looked over at the other two. "I'm sure they're more capable than I am. I suppose you could say I'm...used to injuries." She laughed again. A polite, girlish, giggle. "Well...I don't want to keep any of you from your exercise. Don't worry about me."
