Zetsu never liked the snow.  He loved the warmth of the sun and the humidity that he created in his apartment.  He loved the weather that was perfect for growing his beloved plants.  In the snow, Zetsu felt drained, frozen to the bone.  His seasonal cycling plants that sat on his terrace were temporarily dead, and he would not feel well again until they did.  It was around this time that he always developed a cough, becoming more pale than normal underneath his concealing makeup.  He would take shelter in heated buildings when he could, keeping his coat on at all times.  This time, he had found himself in a large book store. 

Zetsu never cared much more the holiday season.  The new year was just another day to him, and he had no reason to care for Christmas.  He had never joined in the celebrations, not even owning a fitting Yukata.  He hadn't had one since he was a child, and he had no intention of ever having one.  Instead, he would buy a book and sit in his apartment, reading as the celebrations went on outside.

As for now, it was time to find that book.

Coughing into his medical mask, Zetsu flipped through the pages on a book about European plant life.  Mosses were far more interesting to him than mistletoe and bamboo.

Although finals were over, Hana still found herself studying to improver her grades; her last score was rather low, and she intended on trying to fix the problem if she could help it. Like probably every other college student, she hated the work what came with it, and maybe it was odd that on Christmas Eve she sat in some bookstore, sipping cocoa and humming to herself as she tapped her pencil on the table next to her book, trying her best to solve a problem she knew she would never really understand. But with work off for the holidays, she found herself with a lot of free time and had already gone shopping and spent time with her mother and the dogs. And if she didn't try to do something about her grades now, she doubted she ever would. During her two hour stay at the bookstore, she had purchased a few things that she thought might help, and intended on putting them to good use once she got home-- the library was really just too far away, and hailing a cab during this time of year seemed impossible.

Moving her pencil to try and write the answer-- a guess, really-- on the paper, her attention was immediately caught by the sound of someone coughing. Again. Glancing over her shoulder, she watched one man in particular, who seemed to look rather sickly in her opinion, and smiled out of pure common courtesy. "Hey, are you okay?" She wasn't really all too good with things of a medical nature, and she didn't really want to get close enough to help. But she figured that with all her work with sick animals, she could suggest something. Of course, though, that wasn't quite the way it worked. But she wouldn't listen to that, because to her, dogs didn't differ the least bit from humans.

Zetsu never expected anyone to address him. People, for the most part, avoided him, which he appreciated in his own way. It was a bit of a surprise when the girl nearest him asked him a question, and even more that is concerned his own health in a positive way. It was so much of a surprise that all he did was glance at her, assuming that she hadn't actually been addressing her. She must have been talking to someone else, either on the phone or nearby. While he was not aware anyone else was near on this side of the shelf, he could never be too sure about the other side.

Putting his book back, he coughed again as he searched for a more informative one.
