Pupils constricted.
Pupils dilated.
 
Ah!
I love this scene.
 
Squint. Squint.
What? How did that happen?!
 
Smile.
Close.
 
"Manga."
"Webtoon."
 
But, wait!
My head's bobbing!
 
Earbuds on?
Right, rhythm.
 
Foot tapping.
Smile resurged.
 
Fingers tapping.
Eyebrow arched.
 
Huh?
Book.
 
Lip pulled to the right.
Brow arched again.
 
Hand outstretched.
Hand retracted.
 
 
 
Should I?
 
 
 
Foot still tapping.
Head still bobbing.
 
 
 
Shrug.
 
 
 
One page.
...Another.
 
Pupils constricted.
Pupils dilated.
 
That feeling again!
Lips tingling with familiarity now.
 
Bobbing.

Tapping.
Tapping.

Lub-dub.
 
Clock.
Tick-tock!
 
Ah!
Earbuds off.
 
 
 
The show!
 
 
 
Plasters
And People.
 
Emotions
And People.

And people.
 
Reality
Or art?
 
 
Lub-dub.
Lub-dub.
 
Lub-dub.
Lub-dub.
 
 
 
Earbuds
 
 
 
On(.)

                     Cycle 
 
Recurs.
