Between The Lines
by the lovely @tarysande

“I’ve read them.”

She grinned. “When do you find the time?”

He thought of words portioned out like morsels of food,
words held hostage, words stolen. He thought of all the books he’d held
over the years: the ones with fine, embossed leather covers; the ones
half-falling apart; the ones missing pages. Some he’d loved and some
he’d hated; all had changed him, in their ways both subtle and
shattering. He’d been mocked and questioned and sometimes admired, but
always, always he’d come back to books, to knowledge, with the thirst of
a dying man desperate for the water only words could provide.

He marked his place with a pretty ribbon he’d earlier
freed from her hair and set the book down beside the bed before turning
to face her, mirroring her pose. “I make the time,” he said. “It is… I
find it essential.”
