Two Gerry stories in a row is possibly a clear sign of me getting to much sun atm, y/n?

Sunday, August 6th is a day that Gerry spends largely afraid of West. Yes, that is not an error the omniscient narrator made here - Gerry is afraid of West, not the other way around. Not that there are plenty of occasions during which West hasn’t been afraid (or the West equivalent of it which possibly is more in the neighborhood of ‘mildly baffled’ than the wasteland of ‘utterly petrified’) of Gerry. Numerous of them instantly spring to mind, like that one time where West found Gerry in his bed (not during the time he made the error of judgement to live in JC, but in his previous flat that accidentally burned down) whilst wearing what West thinks must have been a giant peacock costume. Or that time Gerry trapped West in his lab to hold a 45 minutes speech about that fish in the Amazon river that swims up your urinary tract when you pee. Or pretty much every time Gerry refers to West as his best mate, which is accurate, yes, but that doesn’t make it less scary. Well, for both parties involved, probably.


So, Sunday, August 6th. Gerry spends the majority of the day sitting next to West and looking at him like one looks at a wild animal in the zoo that is doing funny things, like giant Gorillas who poke worms out of specially prepared watermelons. Silverback West took Gerry with him to visit his family of four teenage gorillas and two ex-girlfriends who not only are best friends but also have the same first name. So, Gerry sits in the giant living room of Sheryl (No 1, Gerry thinks, her daughters look older than the other two), around her giant table with all the other gorillas and there are stacks and stacks of papers, leaflets and whathaveyou spread out on the table.

Gerry watches in amazement how all seven Wests cut out coupons for discounts - buy three shampoos, get one free, 15% off dairy products, save 5 $ - and sort them in neat stacks whilst noting them down on very complicated looking charts. Gerry himself has been sidebarred by West Jr, the youngest (about five, Gerry reckons, but already with the no-nonsense-look of her biological dad) and demoted to a mere spectator status because ‘oh my God, you’re doing it wrong, give me your scissors right now’.

So, Gerry watches. And really, it’s exactly how Dian Fossey must’ve felt in the jungle.
