"Then I guess you'll be going back to school tomorrow then?" Gebdo asked, trying to steer the conversation away from its previous direction.
"Actually," Shinji began, "I don't think that'll be necessary."
"And why not young man?" The commander of NERV asked in a fatherly tone even he didn't realize he could manage.
The younger man looked sheepish, "You see, I have the equivalency of a PhD in biochemistry, with a specialization in xenogenetics." His face blushed slightly from the embarrassment of what he was about to say. "I actually have all of Mom's memories up to the point when we separated a few days ago."
Gendo could feel his own face reddening in a manner he did not think was possible anymore. No one had managed to get him to blush like that since one time he had made the mistake of sitting in on one of his wife's Friday night drinking parties with her friends. The things he had heard that night would have made most other men die of brain damage from oxygen starvation. He cleared his throat, "Uh, so you know about?"
"Yeah, and I wish I didn't." Shinji was shaking his head, "I'll never be able to look at sex the same way again. Though on the plus side, I now have a completely different perspective on it."
