Serves him right tbh
“Meni was right. Pepe was gross.”
"I almost feel bad for Lil-chan having to taste him.”
“see? aside from that little comment, we’re obviously on the same page.”
“we’re both so… honest. so transparent.”
“Dedicated to the truth, right?
"I can see where the D comes from now~"
”i only speak the truth. why? you think i’d lie to you?”
"Oh, I know you’re a liar~”
"But in this case, you shouldn’t have any reason to think differently~”
”how’s my favorite girl, gigi?”
Oooo, I’m the favorite now~?”
"How could I be anything but great after hearing that~”
✎—— “I.. I can run pretty quick.” Something didn’t settle right. Teru memorized her face and movements. “I’m used to dodging bullies.”
"Archery’s pretty simple, once you get the hang of it~ You don’t even have to be near your enemies to fight them!"
"If you want, next time I go practice, I can show you some tips~”
✎—— “I-I’m not one for a fight, s-so.. yeah.. I’m not sure what I’ll be useful for. I’d rather sit and draw all day.” Teru smiled sheepishly. Something felt wrong. Gigi seemed nice.. but that underlying mischievous nature… She didn’t like that.
"Not one for fighting, hm?" she repeated, her voice light with feigned confusion.
"How are you gonna to defend yourself, then?”
✎—— “I didn’t want to die… so..” She gulped lightly. “I didn’t have a choice.” She glanced away, feeling rather stupid. “He was choking me.” Teru bit the inside of her cheek, eyes darting up to her new friend now and then.
"That’s good,” she cooed, taking a few steps closer so she could rest her elbow on Teru’s shoulder. “You’ll need instincts like that here~”
“Oh~? Cute?” Perhaps the smallest hint of bitterness could be detected in her tone as she spoke but regardless her features held only ‘genuine’ intrigue, “Are you planning on having some fun before you kill her~?”
"Mmmm, hopefully~" she laughed, her smile shifting into something that was playfully malicious.
"—But I don’t think she’d even make a decent zombie," Giselle went on, pursing her lips in thought.
