“Funny thing is…” he pauses, looking for the right words, “I think I’d do it all again if given the choice. It was a miserable life, sure, but I kinda like how things turned out, you know?” he starts counting on his fingers, “I get to work with books, which I love. I make enough money to live a comfortable life. I got to meet the country’s biggest author,” he gives me a light nudge with his elbow and I let a small laugh slip out, “And I got to tell that woman who wrote those trashy teenage vampire novels how much her books suck.”
I can’t stifle the laughter after that, and neither can he.
“I-I… I…” I stammer between giggles, “I remember that. She… she tried to tell you that you just ‘didn’t get it,’ and… and y-you said…”
He picks up the story, “What’s to get? Vampires… don’t…” he can barely control his own laughter at this point, “s-sparkle! You hack!”
I wipe a different kind of tear away from my eye, and continue “Best. Book Expo. Ever!” And then we each bust out laughing again.
Because it's the only place you will find even Hanako agreeing that Twilight is a dumbass book.
