"Well, well, well, if it isn't Miss Y/N! Are you here for another fantasy novel?"
You beamed at the librarian as you walked in, eyes twinkling with excitement. "Good afternoon, Ms. Sayaka! Actually, I think I might be in the mood for a romance manga today."
"Good choice! You know where to go, right?"
"All the way in the back with the fantasy manga."
"What a clever girl! I hope you find what you're looking for!"
You quickly paced off towards the back of the library, eager to find your next book. In truth, you had always been fond of romance novels and manga, but you hadn't been reading them as much lately. However, today something had compelled you to search for a good romance manga. Almost like a magnet of fate.
You paused in front of the horror novel section, your previous thoughts suddenly disappearing. Should you try reading a horror story this time around? After all, you were a bit obsessed with romance books. As you pondered over your options, you felt your soul gradually begin to fade away from your body. You blinked, quickly attempting to deactivate your quirk.
Your quirk was Separation, which split your soul from your body so you could possess either people or things. The problem was, you could only possess something for a short amount of time, and if someone damaged your body or killed you, it would also damage or destroy your soul. It would randomly activate sometimes if you were deep in thought, which wasn't good for the simple reason that you would accidentally separate during tests.
"Looks like it's gonna be romance manga today." You said to yourself as your soul shot back into your body, a smile growing on your face.
You turned on your heel and continued to walk towards the back of the library, humming the Ouran High School Host Club theme. Your heart pumped with excitement as you drew nearer to the bookshelf, and you felt your feet moving faster. You rounded the corner, eyes sparkling, when your E/C orbs landed on someone flipping through the latest issue of your favorite romance manga. He had spiky blond hair, tanned skin, and blood red eyes. He looked almost exactly like the love interest in your second favorite shoujo manga: Ethereal.
You carefully inched closer to the spiky haired boy, attempting to peek over his shoulder to get a sneak peek at the book. You opened your mouth, eyes still trained on the book.
"Excuse me, but are you a fan of Heart Lock, too?"
The boy whirled around, seemingly startled. His red eyes narrowed and he quickly shoved the book back into its original place, shoving his hands into his pockets soon after.
"What the fuck is that? I was back here looking for some girly shit to give to my sister."
You made an O with your mouth and then smiled, eyes twinkling. "Do you mind if I take it then? I really want to finish this series."
The ash blonde eyed you and scoffed, waving his hand in the air dismissively. "Do what you want."
You smiled gratefully at him and reached for the book, before being stopped by his hand. You looked at him, confused. He was glaring at you, crimson eyes filled with desperation and panic, although a scowl was on his face. Your eyes flickered back to the book, and you pulled it out of the shelf slowly. The boy growled lowly, his hand gripping the side of the bookshelf tightly. You held the book up in the air, eyes round with curiosity.
"Is this what you want?"
"Why the fuck would I want such a stupid looking book?" The boy snapped, although he was eyeing the book longingly. You giggled, waving it in the air. His eyes followed the book, his jaw clenched as if he was holding himself back from grabbing it. You grinned, eyes twinkling with amusement.
"Do you want to read it with me? There's a secret spot here I always read at."
The angry looking boy stared at you for a moment, before pursing his lips and averting his eyes.
