Amelia Bookstore - Chapter 13
He slowly made his way to the bookstore. Then, all of a sudden, he saw that Amelia’s bookstore was unusually crowded. For a moment, it was enough to mistake the location for another place. ‘What?’
He wondered what happened. Recalling the robbery that happened nearby, he ran to the bookstore. However, the people passing by are all familiar faces. So, the low-productivity, sloppy-dressed customers Amelia spoke of. Besides, they were all coming out with a bunch of books in their hands. Edwin tilted his head and looked around involuntarily when he found a piece of paper stuck to the door and was speechless.
[Thank you for your use. Closed for personal reasons. The door is open, so feel free to bring any books you need! (>_<)]
Out of business? Closing of business? Edwin, looking at the notice written in round and cute handwriting with a bewildered face, entered the bookstore as if possessed. As if many people had already visited, the shelves and bookshelves filled with books were almost empty. He couldn’t even guess what had happened during the week he didn’t come. At that moment, Edwin, who was standing there, pretended to know someone.
“Uh, hello.” He was a young man with a young face, with light blonde hair that was shabby and always wearing a robe. Because Edwin visited at the same time, they used to greet each other when they met, The name is obviously…
“Yeah, it’s been a while. Did your brother come to pick up the book too? You’re a little late. All the good things went out right away.”
“I came here after a week, and I was really embarrassed by the news that the business would be closed.”
“Oh, you didn’t know. Seriously, well… You haven’t been in business here all the time. Everyone was walking around with the door open at some point, but Amelia was a visitor and said she was going to clean it up. Rumors spread and everyone flocked. today has become a bit quieter. until the day before yesterday It wasn’t even a riot.”
Edwin’s heart broke at the story that Amelia herself had spoken. It’s not a holiday, it’s a closure. Besides, doesn’t it mean that if you throw away all the books, you don’t have the will to come back in the first place? Fred scratched his head and continued.
“Books aren’t cheap, so people who took them for free say they like them… As you know, this place was almost like a holy place for poor people like us. Relying on Amelia’s favor, borrow it at will, study until you like, and find a book you want. Even if it was expensive, they brought it all in…”
Edwin guessed that he was simply not interested in other people rather than doing him a favor, and that he had only bought the book as a disguise while buying an adult novel, but he didn’t have to say that. Fred made a complicated expression and sighed.
“I’m sorry for not being able to properly say thank you to a lot of things I’ve been indebted to, but I’m worried that I’m leaving after such a sudden arrangement. Maybe something bad happened…”
Bad thing. Yes, there were some bad things. It’s a bad thing he can’t even tell anyone else. Edwin laughed bitterly, and Fred grinned.
“Well, anyway, I don’t think I’ll ever see you again. I don’t know if Amelia will come back. Then be healthy.”
Fred, who added a word that was almost hopeful, bowed his head and stuttered. It wasn’t particularly bright from what he had seen before, but it was a depressing atmosphere that couldn’t be compared to that. Now, looking around, half were happy, and the rest were sighing. Amelia had unwittingly created a place of comfort for many. Including Edwin. An unknown feeling fills in slowly. Edwin glanced down the stairs.
