Envy is determined to maintain a lofty and dignified silence in his reduced condition, which works fine until the stupid black-and-white cat tries to eat him.
- this isn't the part he minds. Let the whatever-it-is creature just try - that's fine! He'll just take over its body, and then he'd like to see the little alkahestry girl try to pretend she doesn't care. But he doesn't get a chance, because the brat sweeps up his jar before anything can happen and launches on a lecture, braids bobbing as she shakes her finger vigorously, and, incidentally, also shaking his jar, making his body flop and his head ache and someday she is going to pay for this, he swears. Envy hates pain.
But even this he could live with - he's a Homunculus! the great Envy, who started the Ishvalan war! LITTLE GIRLS CANNOT DEFEAT HIM - if delivering the lecture didn't start her off on talking.
After half an hour, Envy can't take it anymore.
"Look, just what kind of delusional are you, pipsqueak? He doesn't have crisp beautiful golden hair! He doesn't have any kind of hair! Because he's a giant empty suit of armor!"
Mei Chan appears unbothered by this. "You're just jealous of Alphonse-sama's good looks," she says serenely, hoists the jar, and continues walking.
The black-and-white cat shoots a smug look at him through the glass, and Envy finds himself starting to wish that the Ishval freak had just squished him under his boot after all.
