Although she is too caught up in her emotions right now, she can still notice how people will look in her direction. Through the corners of her eyes, she can see a number of them turning to look at her even when she just keeps staring ahead. She is no longer wearing anything to cover her bare skin like earlier, so her appearance might have stood out again.
At least, that's what Cassidy assumed for the first few seconds.
'Hmmm...? This is getting strange...'
For some reason, something is starting not to settle well with her. The closer she gets to the exit, the more she senses some sort of looming portent. It's as if there's a hidden intention among those gazes. Since she is already used to people's attention by this point, she is able to differentiate the kinds of looks they are giving.
'No, it's not only that. I won't be reacting like this if I hadn't pointed it out first. This is not just any usual type of attention...' Cassidy pondered as she proceeded with her walk and pretended to be oblivious.
