“Cody rolls his eyes…’Lemme guess. You don’t remember alcohol, either?’
I look to Zen for help but he just flashes a quick smile that I can’t interpret. ‘No,” I admit. ‘I don’t. What is it?’
‘It’s a substance that makes you act like a total dickhead,’ Cody explains.
I open my mouth to ask what that is, but Zen jumps in. ‘It’s slang for someone who is mean or rude.’“
–Zen to Sera
(Unremembered by: Jessica Brody)
This line made me laugh out loud while reading this book. Sera has all of this intellect, but does not know certain words or sayings. It is funny and awkward. I like the Sera is going to innocently inquire after a term she does not know. She will want the literal translation, too. It is sort of sweet that Zen jumps in to explain in a way that will not cause Sera to feel weird or uncomfortable. And perhaps Zen likes that Sera is so innocent.
