Yearning – The Space Between Bookstore presented by A to Z 100 word stories


I’ll always question how it ended.

Olivia blindfolded me. It was soft and silky. Glitter guided me. I followed unresisting to the front of the bookstore blindfolded as if I might see something I shouldn’t or perhaps remember the way back.

Heightened senses made the worn carpet feel like grass. The air smelled rich beneath the smell of dust and old books. I could hear multiple voices talking softly. Everything around me seemed so alive.

The jingle of the bell was startling.

Sounds of traffic overwhelmed me. I was alone on the street. The door locked. The sign read closed.

    1. How much time has passed is an excellent question, and not one I dedicated a letter too. I think if I were to continue that question would need to be answered for sure, for now I imagine that there is a strange time breakdown once a person goes inside the bookstore so that time passes there but stands still outside.


  1. Condolence to Family & Friends of Linda Jorgensen, There are few experiences more difficult than losing a loved one in death. May you find comfort in knowing death was not God’s purpose for mankind and his purpose has not changed. His word is clear, “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces”. (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4) Further, the Bible guarantees the restoration of life. Jesus spoke of the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), performed resurrections and was himself resurrected by his Father. All resurrections took place on earth, giving us a glimpse of what is to come.seeing our loved ones again! (Acts 24:15) Until his promises are fulfilled, may Jehovah God continue to bless & comfort you during this difficult time & in the days ahead.. http://essaywritekd.com/
