Hello, this is kind of an odd question I had a few days ago and I'm not sure what the answer is. Here is the setup:

Imagine you have a microscopic black hole (MBH), perhaps one you made in a particle accelerator. I know that Hawking radiation will cause it to evaporate on some insanely short timescale, but bear with me. It will be far, far smaller then a proton and so could easily zip right into the middle of a subatomic particle.

Assuming I'm right so far, lets say that this MBH drifted inside a Meson composed of 2 quarks. Before the MBH can evaporate, it absorbs exactly one of the quarks. What happens to the other one? The standard model tells us that a single quark cannot exist in isolation, so what would happen to it? Would the remaining quark just vanish in a puff of energy since it's partner no longer exists? Does another quark spontaneously generate next to it to prevent it from being an isolated quark (if so, where would the energy for it come from)? Do the 2 quarks somehow remain connected despite one of them being inside a black hole?

I know there are serious practical limitations on this thought experiment, such as a MBH evaporating so quickly that it may just not be possible to move close enough to another particle to absorb it in time. But thanks to anyone that can provide some insight!
