I was at a used book store like that. Most of the books were in the basement and it was somewhat maze like. I'm not sure if that contributed to the feeling but it was creepy. It was creepy upstairs, too, though; like something following me around.

A couple of days ago I posted an unfinished poem here... I would like to post it again now, as I think I've finished it!



She peeked to the left, and then peeked to the right.
What was going on? There was no one in sight!
She slowly stepped inside, one foot before the other.
Kneeling by the couch, she blew some dust from the cover.
Apparently no one had been here, not for many moons!
Even the pixies lay dormant, sleeping snug in their cocoons.
She tiptoed back outside, as silent as she could be.
Sighing, disheartened, she gazed at the nearby tree.
Curiously, the remains of a faerie party lay bare.
Tiny furniture lay scattered, little chairs here and little chairs there.
She crept ever closer, this riddle would be set right.
As she bent down lower, a loud crash caused her great fright!
She quickly jumped up, and hastily span around.
Towering tall and bright red, a dragon had landed upon the ground.
Appearing quite out of breath, smoke steamed from his nose.
Taken quite aback, she wiped his ash from her clothes.
In grunts and rasps, his voice boomed with a plea.
“Hark, Magister Kaelci! Leave this reverie!
People have gone missing, I’m sure that you’ve noticed.
Climb up betwixt my horns, and keep your eyes focused.
We can soar through the air, through the very sky!
We can gaze across the lands, see all that beneath us lie!
We will travel over the mountains, over the blue of the sea!
Over the forests and deserts, perhaps we will return by tea!”
Nodding seriously to the dragon, she carefully climbed atop his head.
Seated snugly between his horns, his shining scales glowed a bright red.
His giant wings flapped loudly, a boom that echoed in her ears.
Within moments they were flying, the safe aura of the beast allayed all her fears.
They travelled high and travelled low, their eyes moving across the land.
They spent hours exploring everywhere, but their hunt was not going as planned.
A hundred creatures of fantasy came forth, gazing up at the wondrous sight.
Of the robed girl upon a dragon’s head, brightly shining against the sun’s light.
There was no sign of those who were missing, though their journey had been widespread.
Sadly they circled back around, and ventured back toward the Shed.
They retreated back over the mountains, across the deserts and the seas.
When her heart began to pound loudly, and her eyes suddenly filled with tears.
For in the enclosing distance, cheerful laughter could be heard all ‘round.
Here were all of the Shedlanders! At last they had been found.
They had never disappeared you see, the friendships and love within.
The dragon of red landed hurriedly, and Kaelci ran to meet her kin.
Cheer and merriment ensued, as all the friends were united.
All joyfully danced into the Shed, at last the flames had reignited!

To be honest, I am ill. Ill over the way some people get greedy. In life I was taught to make my own way in life and never depend on anyone but myself. Some people never learned this. I will get over it. It just makes me sad. Other than that I am ok.

How are you?

She's fine, thanks. There was a riot in the city she's in the other day. Some cops killed a college student and everything went nuts. It didn't get near her though, thankfully.

She was at work when it happened. I guess they're protesting because they think the prime minister is selling them out.

Q, yes, greed is a horrible thing. Sadly, some people never learn.

Wolfie, glad your Sweetie is ok. That's scary!

Hello Clownfish!

Foss, it's been quite a well little buddy! So good to see you! I'm glad you are sticking to the violin! Ooooooh, a haunted bookstore, how cool is that? I'd be hanging out there all the time. I love my books and love ghosties! LOL
