Libraries were full of ideas—perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.― Sarah J. Maas, Throne of Glass
It was a tempestuous night in the quaint town of Aylesbury, nestled in the heart of Massachusetts. Mrs. Palmer, a librarian of some years, had been tasked with the unenviable duty of overseeing the quietude of the local library.
As she sat at her desk, lost in contemplation, a strange noise seemed to permeate the halls. It was a faint whispering, as if a voice were trying to break through the very walls of the building. Mrs. Palmer, her curiosity piqued, decided to investigate the source of this mysterious disturbance.
She made her way to the mezzanine, the whispers growing louder and more distinct with each step. It was as if they were calling out to her, urging her closer. Despite her trepidation, Mrs. Palmer pressed on, drawn towards the archive room by an unseen force.
