UBC DAY 6 – RETURNING HOME…
He was back after a long time.
Summer vacations had arrived, and this time, he knew he could relax, there were no summer classes.
When he entered, the fragrance was the first thing he noticed… musty, almost like the petrichor fragrance after the first rain; but something that was much more familiar.
The library had not changed either. His favorite books were in the same racks.
He reached eagerly for the new Jack Higgins book on the top shelf.
Reading the blurb, he could hear the book say.
“It does feel like home, doesn’t it?”
And the book lover smiled.
