Visiting Old Friends and Discovering New Ones

I open the door and get blasted by that woody, perfect, fresh smell that nothing can replace.



Pulse accelerates.



I briskly walk to the young adult section.

 

Pass the register,

 

The nonfiction,

 

The games.

 

BOOM.



Memories surround me as I pass old friends.

 

I run my fingers on their spines as I pass,



Breathing in the crisp perfumes they wear.



 

Tessa Grey is 100% herself.

Everyday I remember that.



Kasta is stronger than anyone.

I will always look up to her.

 

Allison Sekemoto struggled to accept her monsters.

As do I.



There.

 

I hold in a tiny scream of excitement,

 

Calm myself,

 

And pick up the book.

 

My new inspiration.
