Long Lost Fantasies
This is your first time in here. For years you have seen this old library but have never chosen to enter it until today that is. For some odd reason you feel as if you are pulled inside and your heart races as fear sweeps over you. On the outside the building is small with worn bricks and a faded sign decribing the place. Inside, dark red carpet covers the floors to muffle out any echoing footsteps you might make. It's dimly lit by small lanters. Shelves of books tower above you almost swallowing you whole if you were to gaze up at them for too long.
"Ahh welcome!" an elderly voice snaps you out of your bewilderment as a kindly old gentleman sits before you. With greying hair, parted slickly down the sides of his balding head the old man looks at you kindly, his blue eyes looking down at you through small round lensed glasses. He's dressed in an outfit your grandfather would probably wear. A light green V-neck sweater vest covering a white buttoned up shirt, slick grey dress pants and brown dress shoes. He's got a round waiste, yet a kind smile that draws you to his gentle face. A pocketwatch is gently tucked with one of the vests pockets and it's ticking engulfs the library.
You can hear it's soft echoing melody as you approach closer. He looks as if he's expecting something from you, so you explain that you were curious about the library and wanted to check out a book. His eyebrows raise in surprise and happiness as he gets up from the small cluttered front desk. "Well well! There are tons of books here, awaiting to be read young one! Though first I must ask do you own a library card?" he asked standing beside you.
Leaning upon a wooden cane his posture is very relaxed. You shake your head no, seeing that you've never been to this library, this visit being your first time here. Kindly smiling, he twirls his right hand and almost magically a light blue card appears between his old, yet nimble, fingers. Holding it out, all you need to do is sign the back and it yours. It's a pretty little card, made of plastic with and insignia of an opened book upon it's front. A standared library card but you can't help but feel a little happy.
"This is your ticket to a world of imagination!" the old Librarian says gesturing towards the bookshelves. "You are free to endulge in many stories and fables as your little heart desires, though keep in mind that some of the books might want to claim you as their own." He chuckles lightly shuffling to his desk. Handing you a lantern, the old man returns to scribbling into a book. You are free to now explore, though you feel weak at the knees. What did the Librarian mean by 'some books might want to claim you as their own'?
Still all of this seems so magical and with a little courage you begin to take your first steps into a large sea of shelves to your right. Books upon books, shelves upon shelves, so many decisions, so many choices. You are a bit confused where to begin. Then you spot something sparkling in the corner of your eye and turn to see a large red velvet covered book sitting all alone upon a small pile of bookstack. With golden letters it reads Long Lost Fantasies. You feel almost compelled to reach out and grab it from it's lonely pile, but you are hesitant.
What do you do?
A.Grab the book and decide to take it with you.
B.Ignore it, though you feel in your heart that destiny is pulling at you slightly.
