The child’s eyes widened in awe as the words came alive on the pages. How reading could be something so enjoyable had seemed a mystery until he’d learned to do it himself. Now, it was as if endless worlds had been unlocked. He swore he’d never stop reading for as long as he lived.
Time went on, and job after job came until he’d climbed the industry chain of sales, straight to the top. Time allotted to him was filled with selfish desires and greed for power. The dusty bookshelves in his home, once alive and ever-growing, sat untouched and uncared for.
When the day came that the market crashed and employees had to be cut, he was the one they told they were reluctant to be rid of. Nevertheless, he was sent home, jobless. As he sat by the window with his eyes glazed over, a longing arose from the emptiness. It was a distant but familiar feeling, one that reminded him of flashlights and blanket forts. Then, his eyes drifted to the bookshelf, where sat his original collection of stories from when he was young.
His eyes misted over, and for the first time in years he picked up the classic story he’d loved so much. It took him far away, to another time, and there he found comfort in remembering the joy he’d forgotten.
