A Story Written by Larabae13…
Mrs briggs peaked into the office and smiled at the young woman who sat at the desk doing inventory of the new best sellers,she wondered why a beautiful young woman will dress herself in dreary colours and doesn’t the tight way she packed her hair gives her headache? “we are opened clara” she said. Clara Hilton looked up and pushed her tortoise shell glasses to her face “ok mrs briggs”. “I’ve told you to stop calling me mrs briggs call me anna” she frowned at clara. “Ok anna I just keep on slipping” she smiled sheepishly at anna “you know I’m still trying to get used to being here….it is not like the library I work in canada if not for my late aunt’s will,I won’t be here,but it is time for a fresh start anyways”. Anna smiled sympathetically at her “we all loved your aunt suzy, she was a good old crone with steel in her backbone….but we didn’t know that she has a family because she lives alone in her big old house with only her cat”. “I didn’t know that I have an aunt too until her lawyer called me, that was when I knew my mother was estranged from her family because of my father” clara told anna.

The bell jingled from the door signaling the arrival of people into the library. “Good morning Alan” mrs briggs greeted cheerfully “what brings you to our library today? Because it’s been years since you stepped foot into this library” Clara found her eyes straying to see the handsome young man called Alan who just entered the library. Goodness gracious! He is tall! She thought,are those eyes green or blue? She couldn’t say because it wasn’t either. Her breath quickened and she could hear the sound of her heart pounding like bango drums,those shoulders…Oh Lord, what is wrong with me? I haven’t been affected by a pretty face before, this is sure the love-and-leave them type of guy. Thank God he is not my type or he can be, she thought.Snap out of this clara and listen to what they are saying.
