She paused at the side of the library's door. Leighden also stopped and just stared at her.
She raised her left eyebrow again just a sign that she's waiting for her question.
Leighden gasped. "Books again and again?" she asked.Pershey smiled at her. "Yeah, books first." She went inside the library.
The library is so vast that it is almost filled with a variety of books. At the end of the library there is a wattpad library. Lots of wattpad books and other books from various platforms.
Many students reside in that area. Almost most of the students miss class to read books. Pershey was also often there. She really love to read than to study.
Pershey donated 5,126 books. She really loves books. She thought of building a wattpad library to further entice students to enter their university. One of the reasons she built it was because she wanted to stay in a quiet place.
She was usually there to spend time so the librarian no longer forbade her to spend time in the library. She is known as an influencer student.Overall, there are already 8, 217 books in the wattpad library. School books are not yet included. She also donated 500,000 pesos just to have a wide library all over the world.
"Books first because?" Leighden asked confusedly. Pershey stopped touring. She picked up a book and read the title first. She did not like the book so she returned it to its source. Again, she picked up another book in the row where they were.She glanced quickly at Leighden and immediately looked back at the book before answering. "Books before boys because boys brings baby." Leighden laughed out loud and immediately covered her mouth when the other students distracted her. She had already removed the lid from her mouth.
"How about Neil?" Leighden still looking at her. She continued to focus on the book then replied.
"Books before him." Leighden came even closer to her. She marvels at what Pershey says every time she talks to her.She snatched the book that Pershey currently reading. Pershey just looked at her without emotion. There was no trace of shock on her face. She shows no emotion.
Leighden returned the book to its source before saying, "Do you have a plan, Pershey? Don't tell me you're going crazy just for him?" Pershey just sighed and laughed weakly after. She picked up the book that Leighden had returned.
She read for a moment and answered, “Not yet, Leighden."
"I told ya'h!" Leighden said with a mixture of laughter that makes her confused.
"W-what?"Leighden laughed at her.
"He won't like you if you stay like that. You're a nerd one." She slapped the book lightly on Leighden's head. They both laughed.
"Nerd really ah!"
"Am I wrong? You look so nerd," she repeated.
"Okay fine! You look an old woman always holding a book."She slapped the book on Leighden's head again. Leighden backed away slightly making her to laugh.
"This is me. I don't want to change myself just to make him like me," she said.
"I just suggested, Pershey. I just want you to be presentable. Use make-up. Use hills than doll shoes. Bags are what you hold instead of books. Wear proper outfit. Wear crop-"
"Stop! I don't need those things, Leighden."
"But I just suggest-"
"Shhh! Lower your voice. You're in a library, Miss," librarian said.
She apologizes, "S-sorry." Pershey went to the end of the library. Leighden still followed and teased her. They stopped.
"Aren't you tired of reading? Aren't you tired of books? It's so boring. It's so boring to read," Leighden scolded her.
Pershey stared at her. "You know?"
Her forehead frowned. "What?"
She looked back at the book. "I want to donate books again, Leighden. It's a good idea, right?"
"I'm not sure yet," she answered.
"I want to donate books tomorrow," she added that surprised her.
"W-wow! As in tomorrow?" Pershey nodded. "It's getting bored here."
"H-how many books?" She stacked the books she was holding before she answered, "3,000 books."
"S-seriously? That's worth of?"
Pershey smiled. "88,000 pesos," she said.
"Are you out of your mind? You're going to donate books that are worth of 88,000 pesos? You're going to spend a huge amount, Pershey. Think about it!"
She put the books down on the table for a moment and sat down. "Lower you voice," she commanded. "I'm thinking, Leighden. I just really want to help our University," she justified.
"You wanna help?"
"You're helping too much!" She spoke so loudly that surprised her .Pershey suddenly laughed weakly.
"You're overreacting, Leighden. I'm not going to use your money," she said, still laughing.
Leighden sat down next to her and watched her. "Think about how much money you're going to spend just for books. Are you wasting money? So many people need money in this world," she sermonized.
"I know and that's why I'm helping our University," she said. "I don't wanna spend my money for such a useless thing so I thought of using it at the University de Forde. It's not bad to help develop the University, is it? And another one, I just want to have a place where I can read a variety of books," Pershey added. Leighden sighed in frustration at her. Because Pershey can't get what she's aiming for.
"Why don't you build a foundation? Help a charity work? Build your own house? Why are you wasting your money?"
"I don't have a time to build my own foundation. I already have my own house. Especially, I'm not wasting my money, Leighden. For your knowledge, actually, I'm saving 80% of my money in my bank and I'm helping this University using the rest of my money, "she explained. She checked if Pershey was sick. "I'm not sick, Leighden. I'm telling you the truth that you need to know," she added.
"Yes, you're not definitely sick, Pershey. Okay," she gasped. "It's up to you wherever you use your money. I hope you know what you are doing."
"I know what I am doing, Leighden. Just ride with me."
"What's your purpose in helping our University?"Pershey thought about Leighden's question to her. She could not understand what she meant.
"No. I just wanna help," she replied. Leighden raised her left eyebrow as she continued to look at her.
"Really? Perhaps, you're helping for Neil."
"Of course not. I'm not asking for anything in return for my help. The help I do comes from my will," she clarified. Her face became slightly serious which caused Leighden to laugh.
She laughed as she tapped Pershey's arm. "Just kidding, Pershey. You're too serious," Leighden said.
"I'm just saying," she complained.
"So, are you really sure that you're going to donate 3,000 books that worth of 88,000 pesos?"
Pershey looked at her without expression and replied, "When was I joking?" She laughed quickly.
"Okay, fine." She read for a moment when Leighden picked up the book she was reading."Lem'me ask you something, Pershey," she became serious.
"Ask anytime, as always."
"So, you're planning to donate it tomorrow, right?" She nodded in response. "Where do you buy books? At the international bookstore or just at cheap stores?"
"You're calling other stores 'Cheap'?"
"Did I called it cheap? Oww, sorry. By the way, you can buy books in that store, a cheap store. You can even get cheaper if you buy in public stores," she encouraged.
"Actually, I already bought it, Leighden," Pershey said. Leighden's eyes widened when Pershey said she had already bought it. "Why? You're suddenly dumbfounded?"
"Huh! I've been offering stores before. I've been talking before and then you tell me you've already bought it? Why didn't you tell me right away? You're annoying," she snapped. Pershey first picked up the book that Leighden had taken from her and briefly opened it.
"Did I tell you to speak?"
"Just kidding, Pershey. You looked so irritated by me," she teased.
"I already bought in the online store. I ordered 3,000 books that are worth 88,786 pesos plus the shipping fee 587," she explained to her surprise.
