[Why hello again, It’s been a short while since you were here.]
[What’s with the pouting face? What happened to that regal look you have back there? Are you that annoyed in meeting me up here again?]
[How very frank of you. Well as if you have any choice with regards to this matter. So how was it? The second life given to you that is. Let me hear it from you.]
Dust and the smell of wood and of paper permeated the whole air of this ancient library. The stained glass with different designs of nature, men, and women were located all over the place and distills the bright sun outside into a soft glow inside.
