Bedtime Story: The Enchanted Bookshop – Night 18



Once Upon a Time…

Sven groaned and turned toward the door to his room. “Are you all right, dear?” he heard Mrs. Harrison ask. “It’s past noon.”

“Yes. Thank you. I stayed up all night, sorting these boxes,” he stated, stepping into his jeans and opening his door.

“Sorry to wake you. It’s just that I was getting worried.”

“I’m glad you did. I have a letter I need to mail.”

“I can put it out for the mailman, if you’d like.”

“No. It’s going to Sweden. I need to take it to the post office.”

Mrs. Harrison regarded him intently. “You’ve found your magic book, haven’t you?”

Sven grinned. “As a matter of fact, I have. And I have no idea what it means.” Mrs. Harrison nodded. “But I slept well for the first time in months. And I’m going to lease a space for a bookshop as soon as I mail my letter.”
