The First skull

Satisfactory Essays
It was about 49 years ago. The date was October 24, 1965 when a young girl came into my store. She was around the age of 15 years old she seemed like a very intelligent girl, which she was. She came into my store asking if I had any good fiction books. I said “yes I do” and directed her towards the fiction area of my book store. She started looking around. This one book caught her eye. It was some kind of dragon book. The cover was a blue and green scaled looking type of thing. She just sat there staring at it like it was some kind of long lost love that she finally found. After about a minute or two of her staring at it she opened it up and read the first paragraph. She looked up at me with the biggest smile I have ever seen and she said “i’ll take it”. I said to her “okay that will be 2.99”. She gave me the money and walked out joy filled she got a nice new fiction novel. After she left I went into the back of the building to restock some books. As I was restocking them I thought maybe I should put that dragon book back there in case another person wants a copy. So I started looking for another copy but I couldn’t find one. I was a little confused because all the other books in my store had about 20 other copies of itself when the book that the little girl just bought only had one and only one copy. I thought nothing of it at the time. A few hours past and it was now 6:56 and we closed at 7 so I started to lock up. After locking up I got in my car and started driving home. When I got home I took a shower and ate some dinner and watched some tv. Afterwards I went to bed. The next day in my store that girl walked in again and questioned me on something it said in the book. She said “this book says if ... ... middle of paper ... ...ered me tea but I kindly refused I asked them If they seen the book Sylvia bought from me. Mrs. likens said “yes we have and it’s a very odd book”. I asked if I could see it and they said “sure”. I started skimming through the book till I found the book mark I gave her. It looked like the picture I saw in my store but it was different. This time it looked a bit fatter and there seemed to be a skull next to him. The dragon still had that smile. I kept looking through it and that was the only picture it’s as if it just changed. At that moment I thought what if that devil spawn thing was true. I asked them “when did she usually read this”. Mr. Likens said “ usually around dusk why”? He asked. I said “just curious”. I kept this story to myself until just now because everybody would think i’m insane. But if I am insane i’m still sane enough to know it.
