While Terrie is interested in Geno more romantically, Mary's interest in him is purely for information (though getting unpleasant expressions out of him proved to be entertaining for her). She's interested in the works of a particular scientist named Cecil Jones and Geno is one of those works, but he knows almost nothing about his origins even if he wanted to tell her anything. Mary implies that she has current information on Jones, but Geno gave mixed signals as to whether or not he wants to know.
Fast forward to this page, Venny noticed that Jones' name is on Mary's documents, implying that Jones sent her to this campus, and also revealing that Venny himself is just as clueless as Geno, not knowing what this seemingly important guy is up to.
April 2022 - Updates are still on a spontaneous schedule. I did an every-Thursday update for a while,
but I'm now entering my fourth month of Mandatory Overtime at work, plus I'm also working on commissions and
Immortal Fool's finale.
Chapter 6 of HiEx is running a bit long, but it is ending soon, and there will be some additional pages, not quite chapter 7,
that will wrap up the storyline of the second book. Will I do another Kickstarter for that? I dunno. I'll figure things out when the time comes.
