Books And Pillows Becoming One

Post by Satoshi Veach on Sun Feb 24, 2013 7:21 pm

The library, I place where books and the people who read them find common ground.

Sitting at a table with books on military conflicts, historical conflicts, empires, and the overall diplomatic behavior of countries all around is me. Asleep.

My Narcolepsy seemed to kick in while I was in the middle of a particularly larger book that looks to be similar to that of a college textbook.

What was once my personal study now becomes my pillow.

Yuuji enter the Library a few books in hand. He sets the down up front but sees no one. Turning around,seeing someone sleeping on a table he gets closer to see who it is. Veach sleeping on a book, Yuuji looks around once more still not a soul in sight. He begins poking Veach and whispers
"Veach....buddy?"

Normally I don't wake unless it's either on my own or my first name is called (natural mental adaptation) but, due to the length of my slumber, the poking seems to wake me.

At first I am rather hostile. I've just always been the type for it when I'm woken from a nap.

"Huh? Hey what the hell-...Oh..Y-Yuuji?"

My eyes are at the usual half-closed position but in this case they look tired as well as act it.

*Yawn*

"Sorry. Easy to fall asleep in a library."

"What are you doing in here?"

I may be tired but that may single-handedly be the stupidest question ever asked in all of mankind. Tired or not.

When I realize what I just asked...inside of a friggen LIBRARY, I wake up pretty quick.

"Iye...GOD, TAKE ME NOW!"

My head bows in humiliating utter defeat at the hands of myself.

"its okay man...." Yuuji says as he subtly shakes his head

I check my watch.

Damn, I fell asleep near the end of lunch and it's a little after the end of sixth period. I missed half of school!?

Yuuji must have just gotten here. Perhaps for getting a book to read back at the dorms, though he could of just dropped any borrowed ones off.


"What type of book were you looking for?"

He may have the possibility of only being here to return a book but it's a safe and reasonable question to ask in these circumstances.

"Actually, once I'm asleep I seem to immediately enter the deep sleep phase in which you stop dreaming and are hard to wake up."

"The usual length that takes for someone is a couple hours. For narcoleptics, that length is quickened to around 15 minutes. I don't know why but for me it's somewhere under that length."

I start to think more of why I would fall asleep so easily.

"I have been slacking off lately with going on my runs but not too much. Perhaps it's the lack of voice given to the text in a textbook."

"I swear, I can imagine the guy who made some of these books to talk in monotone and be named 'Hubert' or something."

"Uuuh-ha heh heh..."

After laughing awkwardly I once again bow my head in defeat.

"..Lunch..."

LUNCH!?
"You have been here since lunch...?" Yuuji looks in his bag taking out a water and some sort of energy bar, placing it on the table
"You need this more then I do right now."

I feel fine since I did indeed eat before I K.O.ed but I probably should eat something healthier than a half of a turkey sandwich, potato chips, and a can of orange soda.

"Grazie."

I put down the bar with two large bites and finish 75% of the water. I may have a very small apatite but I can really beat the crap out of food when I want to.

"Yeah, every once in a while instead of going to the art room or band room I'll come here to..."

I look around at the good stack of books made for generally boring people who probably might have some sort of anger issues.

"...yeah. I kind of have a slight interest in this stuff."

Why is the library so boring... all books do for me is add more trouble to my studies.

Hawke appears from behind a bookshelf and pokes Yuuji lightly in the back in an attempt to surprise him.

"The music room is great. How're you guys?"

Glad somebody came to save Satoshi. Didn't have the heart to wake him up when I came in.

Yuuji grabs his back and looks behind him.

"Someone speaks some sense!"

I'm about to sarcastically scold Hawke for not waking me earlier but then remember how he actually carried me when I fainted on him so, unless I want to look like a douche, I probably shouldn't even be sarcastic about that.

"What's up Hawke? Didn't know you were a reader."

"Oh, just a few things... Tolstoy... Shakespeare... Oscar Wilde.. y'know the drill."

Being rather intelligent, in his prime Hawke used to love reading books. If he wasn't playing an instrument or off canoodling with some girl, he could be found reading some literary masterpiece in his room. However, he still couldn't decide if losing memory of most of his favorite stories was a good or a bad thing, as he got to read them all again.

"The Outsiders is a good book. It's American literature but the story that structures it is really the most important."

"Perhaps, the shadow children series too. Although the way the main characters may piss you off sometimes with how they can act."

I may like military books for old people but I generally have a past with reading different styles.

"If you weren't forced to read these for school then I would also recommend Romeo and Juliet or The Odyssey as well. I read them for school but they were generally good enough for me to read them by myself."

My attention returns to Hawke.

"Hey, you seem into the classics so you're probably best suited for this question."

"Would you know if this library has The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli? I never got to read it and didn't ever feel like buying it off of the internet or anything."

"Thanks Veach. also the book you mention should be up front where the stack of books are." Yuuji points
" I had checked out the book a couple of days back but never got to it."

He knows that book??

Damn, man.


"Huh, I didn't think many people here really knew that book and thought even fewer read it. Thank you, Yuuji."

I actually can't help but feel proud of someone for reading a book like that. I don't even know why.

Before I can even make my feet move, they seem to move by themselves over to the designated area and start searching.

"Sorry buddy; not familiar with it. And Yuuji, To Kill a Mockingbird is old but gold. My all time favorite. Also The Great Gatsby is fun, but very strange."

Calling from across the room.

"Written in 1928 and taking place in New York of 1923 if I remember correctly."

Not a book school made me read but my father recommended it for me.

"Nick Carraway, a man from Chicago, meets a man with strong hopes and dreams by the name of Jay Gatsby. The story is about Nick's involvement with the New York life of 1920's Vice and party life while being a man of values and mid-western life."

"Best summary I can come up with without spoiling it. The plot is a type that can only really be discussed with others who had read-"

My voice heightens.

"-it-Oh my god I found it! A book of much controversy by my favorite philosopher of the medieval ages even if it was during the late period."

God, I sound like such a nerd sometimes. Unfitting for a dork.
