Book Haven, Tuesday

Rufus was in a foul mood as he restocked shelves at Book Haven. The store itself wasn't the cause of it, and Dark Nation wasn't either--though Rufus did spare a baleful glance at where his dog was making friends with the dust bunnies--no, the problem was that he'd had terrible dreams where the most interesting thing had been a virtual reality fishing game.

And he'd woken up feeling off-balance and obscurely disappointed by the appearance of a strange person in a super hero outfit at the end of it all.

Ugh.

None of it made any sense and that left him cranky. Maybe plotting would help soothe his irritation away.

Book Haven is Open.

Anne had never been much of a reader, but that was in large part because she'd never had a ton of down-time. But more than a month on the island had been enough time for her body to slowly adjust to the pace of things, and catch up on years of much-needed sleep, and now she was finding herself without much to do sometimes.

So, sure, why not try out the whole book thing and see if that helped?

"Hello?" she called hesitantly as she strode into the shop, not even sure where to start looking.

"I'm looking for a book," Anne answered. Then she realized how stupid that sounded.

"Or perhaps a couple of them? Something to keep me occupied in the evenings?"

"That's a good question." Anne shrugged, the motion still a little awkward in the way it emphasized that one of her sleeves hung empty. "I've never really been much of a reader, so I guess I'm kind of new to this."

Anne blinked.

"Um."

That was a good question.

"I really haven't had a lot of time to relax or anything in... a while?"

Saving the world took a lot of time, it turned out. And Anne had done it more than once.

"Military." Sort of. Close enough, anyway.

"And, honestly, I think I'd like something different." There was a reason she wasn't still in the military, after all.

"I don't know. Something relaxing, I guess?" She was tired of always feeling so tense.

She wasn't doing it on purpose, and would probably even feel guilty if he suggested it.

As it was, she could only shrug helplessly. "I honestly don't know."

"Um. Maybe I should get a couple of different things? Figure out what I like that way?"
