The narrator tells us that he's always been in contact with someone on campus. He's especially fond of the teacher, whom he calls "the library sensei" . The teacher is always covered in books, and the narrator tries to say something to him, but he'd rather not wake him up. The narrator falls asleep after lunch, and wakes up to find the teacher staring at him. He doesn't want to wake the teacher up, so he leaves the teacher's report to his "self" , which is the narrator's "own self." The narrator wakes up and realizes that the teacher is asleep. He wants to know what's going on. He asks the teacher if he has something he wants to read, but the teacher says that most of his books are from the library, and that he probably looks like a kid who's too scared to say anything. He tells the teacher that if he wants something, he can take it. He also tells the narrator that he always comes to the library to turn his reports in after class, so the teacher can see him clearly. He says that he can see that the narrator is different from the teacher because he looks different from how the teacher looks. He suggests that maybe the teacher makes assumptions about the narrator based on how he looks, and he asks if the narrator would like to borrow his favorite book, which he says he does.
