I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
Flere-Imsaho floated over, making a noise like rustling paper. "I heard what that asshole said about ignoring machines," it said.
"Hmm?" Gurgeh said.
"I said - oh, it doesn't matter. Not feeling left out because you can't dance, are you?"
"No. I don't enjoy dancing."
"Just as well. It would be socially demeaning for anybody here even to touch you."
"What a way with words you have, machine," Gurgeh said.
I like Flere-Imsaho.
