Bedtime Story: The Enchanted Bookshop – Night 13



Once Upon a Time…

Sven held her gaze and nodded slowly. “His inventory contains fourteen boxes marked ‘magic books’. But I’m not so sure.”

“The only way to find out is to reopen the shop and give people the chance to find them. You can’t just chuck them into the donation bin,” she said indignantly.

Sven began to shake his head. “I don’t know…”

Mrs. Harrison interrupted him. “That book changed my life and restored my loving husband to me for the remaining months of his life. I wouldn’t have missed that for the world.” She now assumed a businesslike demeanor, “You also need somewhere to sell the rare books.”

“I can offer them online. My grandfather said that one of the magic books is for me, but I opened every book in all fourteen boxes and none of them contained my name.”

“I know there are magic books—your hand is resting on mine. It’s your destiny to reopen The Enchanted Bookshop.”
