The words are book, knee, support, and cake.
Book: found in 120 Grains of Sugar (Wip #4)
“That’s nothing,” I say, breezy, maybe a little too quick. Another eternity passes between words. Before he can make a move, I slide the old book forward into his waiting hands and let go. Two clicks of a single button on my watch turns the timer off and resets it, resets it, resets it. Not one drop of reassuring ink lines the back of my wrist. There’s no gentle way to put it: I think I might be screwed.
Knee: found in IIDWTS (Wip #1)
Tsukosu sat on the edge of the bed with his back to them, staring dully out at his balcony. His hands were empty and loosely rested on his knees, though small, all-too-familiar bandages were scattered like patchwork across his forearms, and Setsuko, at least, knew that if Tsukosu turned, his face would be the same. Tsukosu’s dark hair was a mess, as was his bed; unmade and rumpled, the pillow close to falling onto the floor.
“Oh, gosh.” Sakata pressed his head into the ground and exhaled in relief. His arms slowly folded in until both hands were propped beneath his neck for support. He relaxed just enough to steady his heart once more, then pressed his eyes closed and let out a small chuckle of his own. “Now you’re scaring me.”
Cake: found in IIDWTS (Wip #1)
Taniguchi knew well that it would take nothing more than a swipe of his arm to throw the puny bastard off and one misstep to completely pancake his ribcage. He was still a guest on the campus, however, and aside from Yamada being more irritating than a gnat that wouldn’t buzz off, there really was no reason to harm him.
