365 Prompt: October 26 2017


I was so thirsty. I tried to lick my lips but my tongue was so dry I couldn’t seem to make it work.

I needed books.

I needed knowledge.

I wanted to drink in their power and wisdom.

But in a country where even now, good English books were hard to find, I knew my dehydration would continue.

I wasn’t sure what the solution was.

Or maybe I was, but I feared it too much to even think about, let alone consider.
