I stared at the apparition, not sure whether I was awake or dreaming.
The thing prodded me to show that I was indeed wide awake.
"Who are you?" I stammered in fear.
"I am the book spirit that will show you a sight you will fear", it said.
"Why are you visiting me? I am no Scrooge!", I responded indignantly.
"I am here to show you the grave yard of books ", its bookhead nodded emphatically.
"Why must I see it?"
"To warn you!"
"You have lost your first love. Return to your first love, us!"

  1. The prompt looks like a pile of books that are shaped like the head of a person. Since we are just past Christmas, I thought of using the story of the Christmas ghosts


  2. Hah, that was me visited by the book spirit. I’m not reading enough lately. What a great and unique way to look at the prompt.
