Ssshhh! This is a library!
Reverence demanded I curl up on the long window seat. Enjoying the late afternoon sun teach the dust mites to dance, I opened the newly chosen book.
Prologue: Our heroine lives in a sleepy town on the edge of Lake Erie. She shares the house with a middle aged man, who smokes a pipe and offers a quiet comfort when most needed. Otherwise he fades into the silent walls aware of her requirement for order and serenity.
Chapter 0ne: My story…..
Library silence does not disturb my reading. Memories threaten but are sternly hushed.
This short story is my first attempt at a new genre and posting as part of a flash fiction challenge, hosted at Carrotranch
I would appreciate your comments and ideas so that I can develop this craft.
