For the visually challenged writer, the photo shows a teenage girl sitting crosslegged on the floor in between the stacks in a library engrossed in a book she’s reading.
Jessica was brimming with excitement. Today was library day. She and a bunch of her classmates visited the library every Tuesday. She loved reading and feasting her eyes on those reference books which weren’t available elsewhere.
Another thing that she looked forward to was buying hot cocoa from the cafeteria which was reinforced with enough marshmallows to even repel the polar cold winds that sometimes she had to face when she left the library to go home.
To earn the goodwill of the librarian, she always got her a cup of cocoa too. That’s how she was allowed to have a beverage in the library because it was against the rules of the place.
