While calculating equations and inputting values on his calculator, Kiyo kept his eye on Sherry. It’s not that he didn’t have trust in her, of course. After all they’ve been through with the whole mamodo battle business, there’s no way he wouldn’t trust her. But still. Kiyo couldn’t help but feel there was something very dangerous about her presence, despite how she seemed to be so relaxed.
He didn’t need to actually see which book she was reading to know which one it was. He immediately recognized it. “You planning on staying the night, in that case? It’s a very text-heavy book. I would know; I’ve read it from cover to cover three times.”
"Yes," she smiled dryly, "University-level textbooks on molecular biology tend not to have that many illustrations." She glanced down at the page. "Although they have their fair share of useless diagrams. Ce n’est pas necessaire. Really.”
Despite the fact that her head was already settled into Kiyo’s pillow—it smelled of him, something between laundry detergent and libraries and him—Sherry managed a casual hair flip, claiming more of his bed with her blond curls.
"So where do I stay…?"

Sherry sniffs, “I am not being yandere. We have a
very interesting consensual relationship, how dare you suggest otherwise.”

kiyotakamine replied to your post: || i am not even surprised that the last post on this blog involves…
right i’m still following you with this blog
"You’re not thinking of leaving me, are you?"

"I'm teasing, relax. I know you're married to your books," she smirked. Sherry sat primly on Kiyo's bed and cracked open one of said books. "I guess if there's nothing better to do..." She absentmindedly stroked the spine of the book and peered down at it from underneath her long lashes.
Kiyo returned to his desk to resume what he was working on before Sherry arrived. With her frequent visits (more frequent than expected considering that she lived on another continent), along with the frequent visits of his other friends and ex-book owners, he was used to being interrupted from those that weren’t Zatch or Ponygon.
Picking up his pencil, he turned around to look at Sherry. Having her sitting on his bed giving that look made him nervous. Thinking it was ridiculous that this was making him nervous, looking back at all of the truly nerve wracking situations he had been put in throughout his life, he tried not to show it. Perhaps conversation would calm his nerves. “So,” he began, “Which book is that?”
Without looking up, Sherry began to read in a deadpan, “‘Because they do no encode proteins, mutations in pseudogenes should be neutral with respect to fitness. When such mutations achieve fixation in populations…’ I’m feeling smarter already.”
The corner of her lip quirked up in a coy smile. ”I suppose I’m not going to leave until I finish this book. It is so fascinating, after all; un vrai page-turner.” The woman made to relax herself, leaning backwards until the strands of her hair were spread across Kiyomaro’s pillow.
Sherry put down the book suddenly. Sitting up, she shrugged off the jacket of her dress and tossed it aside, letting it fall haphazardly on the floor. With that done, she settled onto the bed again, carefully resuming her reading. She hummed like she had come across a particularly interesting passage, her shins rubbing together like some part of her needed to be in motion, all the time.
She thought she was doing a wonderful job of pretending that she didn’t care about what Kiyomaro was doing.
|| i am not even surprised that the last post on this blog involves myself and zatch’s dick wow.
i mean i opened this chrome account for the first time in months and it was on zagurzem's ask page sooo.
[stares intently and slowly takes the lollipop into her mouth]
kiyo interprets this as a sign of challenge. he knows he’s the main character and therefore cannot lose. [licking of book intensifies]
sherry’s eyes gleam in interest. a competition.
