Under the moonbeams, Knostrop Hall, John Atkinson Grimshaw
I’m going to a Halloween party again this year and I’m experiencing the same dilemma I’ve encountered every year since I was 8: I have no idea who/what I want to dress up as. ideas anyone? preferably something that doesn’t require a hair cut or changing the color of my hair. also, I wear glasses. soooooo if it’s gonna be a person/character, glasses must be a part of the costume!
I’m back home now.
I slid the receipt (a makeshift bookmark) from between the book’s pages and smiled. “You’re mine now,” I said to myself as I pitied the person who hadn’t finished reading this book, my quarry. I slid my hands over its silky dust jacket while laughing maniacally and salivating.
lesson: don’t leave unfinished books at my house. bookmarks don’t deter me.
parental figure: “sit like a lady”
