Scott is pretty sure that having a nemesis is normal, if you're in a superhero story. Is he in a superhero story? He's not sure he likes the weight of responsibility, even if it is dressed up in frills and baubles that make it seem less scary. Maybe especially not then. There's a lot to worry about, but at the same time, it's like he's being tested. Whatever this Clow Reed wanted, Scott has to figure it out before the world ends at the hands of adorable forces of nature that may or not be people that he's enslaving.
And he still hasn't finished his math homework.
This particular night finds him meditating, a last-minute check for active cards before he half-finishes the assignment in time to hit the hay.
