The "oh hi" died in her throat as soon as Mary Lou started speaking. Mellie felt her mouth open to form a little 'o' and she turned to Amanda on her left to see if she was reading the situation right. This was a bit much, wasn't it? She didn't go out of her way to make Mary Lou feel dumb, did she? A voice in her head said that there was probably very little that made her feel dumb, since the fellow Wampus was so much smarter and better at things that mattered, unlike her, who spent most of her time reading fashion magazines and relationship advice. She pushed that voice away quickly. She didn't need insecurity right now, she needed righteous anger.

That same anger also meant she could feel her face starting to burn, and she didn't need a mirror to tell her that it was probably getting red and blotchy like how it always did when she got upset, and Mellie hated being upset. In fact, she hated it almost as much as looking ugly, but right now she's pretty sure she's a combination of both. "I know when the bake sale ends, I was the one who even gave you that dumb proposal to look over," she rolled her eyes and picked at her polished nails testily. She knew Mary Lou tended to get intense with her proper "procedures" and paperwork, but sheeeeesh.

"Of course I know I signed up for the whole shift, but I think you should also know that this entire shift wasn't going to make much profit anyway." Mellie never played around when it comes to things like customer flow and strategic positioning for maximum sales; she might not be smart in terms of theory or doing math or whatever, but this was practical knowledge stuff, and she definitely had the upper hand over Mary Lou when it came to stuff like this. "Honestly, this is just a marketing ploy to make the SGA look good, and make some of us look like we're doing anything at all." The 'I'm doing you a favour really, no need to thank me' wasn't said out loud, but Mary Lou should be able to infer the implied meaning.

"I wouldn't have had to write my dumb proposal if you didnt make everyone write one before even the tiniest idea could be approved! Did we really need one for the pep ralley, something that happens every single year? No! But did we write one? Hell yeah!!" Mellie didn't realise that she'd unwittingly called her own proposal dumb, but she was too worked up to care. Why was Mary Lou so, so... uptight about every little detail? Hadn't she heard of the phrase 'live and let live'?

She tossed her hair over her shoulder and ran her fingers through the tangled ends, wincing a little when they tugged at her fingers, which were getting increasingly sweaty. She looked back at Mary Lou with some triumph when Amanda seemed to be clearly on her team, and not the president's. Just because she was the president of a student organisation it didn't mean she was immediately the boss of everything. Or even right about everything. This was just like Mary Lou, the compulsive need to be right all the time and show everyone how much better she was than everyone else.

Just when she was about ready to calm down, the other Wampus did the unforgivable. What was she saying, that Mellie didn't make any sales because the things she made were not good enough? Webster, Isolt, and Chadwick, how dare she! "You take that back right now, or I'll... I'll..." Damn. It's so annoying that she didn't have anything on Mary Lou in terms of blackmail material. She probably had loads on her. "You take that back or I'll tell everyone that secret I swore to take to my grave in our second year!"

It was probably pretty low of her to dig up old bones, and she was vaguely aware that she's acting like a thirteen-year-old brat, but she wasn't thinking rationally. Her honour was at stake here.
