Manga Breakdown

After the break-in at Teru's apartment, she's been staying with Kurosaki at his place. Just till her place is fixed or she finds another place to stay. She's made herself at home just like he as told her.

Teru's friends congratulate her, they assume that she is now sleeping with Kurosaki, but nothing could be farther from the truth. In fact, he's acting rather strange, more so than normal. He confides to his boss at Flower Garden his fears that Teru will learn the truth, He's Dasiy, and he won't be able to take care of her after that.

She comes home to find Kurosaki not home. She is just about to check his room but he returns in the nick of time, and is frantic thinking that she saw something. She swears that she hasn't seen a thing. She had not even opened the door yet. To keep her out of his room, so he tells her that it's filled with porn, just to keep her from trying again. She thinks that she is just bothering him and declares she's going home.

When she does though, everything's in such bad shape, that she regrets it and wishes Kurosaki would come for her and take her back to his place. A knock at the door excites her, but it turns out to be a pervert selling magazine subscriptions she can't afford - but who won't take no for an answer. I hate those pushy salesmen. Just saying.

Back at Kurosaki's place, Teru cooks for him, she's actually a pretty decent cook. Kurosaki starts to bug her, saying bad things about Daisy and she stands up for him. She won't stand for anyone picking on Daisy.

After all this mess, she starts to notice that she is falling for Kurosaki.

A new counselor arrives at the school. Her name is Riko and she seems to know Kurosaki quite well. But Teru's friends see them talking together, and misinterpret what they see, telling her. She thinks she may just have a rival for her man.  When he is late for dinner, she begins to worry but is also angry and writes the words "Go Bald" on his plate. He finds it funny and he retaliates by drawing a clown face on Teru's face. Riko questions Kurosaki's motives for being involved with Teru, and offers him an easy way out by a position with a software company far away from her. He's torn over the choice.

Teru decides to get it over with and confronts Riko in her office, asking her if she is Kurosaki's woman, which causes the counselor to laugh and spit her drink everywhere. She does warn Teru away from him. Afterward, Teru tells Daisy that she's in love with someone she shouldn't be. That makes Kurosaki smile.

Teru gets closer to Riko even more so when she learns that the older woman knows Daisy. She starts to trust her and shows her the Daisy messages she has saved on her cell phone, in lots of folders. She calls them her precious treasures. Riko suggests that they live together.

Teru is still in danger though. There seems to be more hacking going on at the school, and it is implied that Daisy is somehow connected which she refuses to believe. Also her friend Kiyoshi is missing. Everything seems like it's revolving around Teru's cell phone. Will Daisy be able to help her without giving away his identity? What does he plan to do once she is safe once and for all?

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless.

So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction.

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading! 

Bisexual Erasure (Pride Month)

Happy Pride! Since today is bisexual day, I wanted to talk about something important to me. I hope you'll listen with open ears, mind, and heart. Thank you.  I’ve seen this happening for years now. People will say things like, “it’s a phase” or “pick a side.” I’ve even seen some say that bisexual people only like cisgender men and women and exclude all other genders. Which isn’t always the case. Sure, some bisexual people feel that way, which is why pansexual and other names came into play. But at its core, being bisexual just means that you’re attracted to more than just one gender.  I’ve never hidden on this blog the fact that I’m bisexual but I rarely talk about the struggles I feel because it just never felt right when you have gay people that have to hide their complete selves for fear of what the world could do to them.  Or trans people who spend every day trapped in the wrong body and can’t tell anyone to get the things they need to be their truth selves.  Put against issues
