Among words. Words written over many years.
She felt their voices. Their whispers. Their desire to be read.
She let her hand wander over the backs of the books. She stopped at one of them.
With a readers hand, she pulled out the book. And opened it.
As soon as she had read the first word, the spell of the book was placed over her.
Her eyes were no longer able to look anywhere else. Her brain couldn't think of anything else than the previous word.
She stood there for a long time. She kept reading.
Then she moved on. To the next book in the library.
