“A library is a place where you can lose your innocence without losing your virginity.”
Katrina put on her glasses, the red rims matching the underlines of her eyes. Without the glasses the world is a blur.
She visited the library twice each week to borrow books. She takes them home and locks herself for hours. Her mother had given up hopes that she will ever be rescued from this addictive reading.She would read rather than watch movies.
She smiled to herself as she remembers the trick Mc Scotts used to get his bride into his bed. These characters were her true friends. She would never step her dainty feet in a club or take strong drink but she was a worldly wise young lady.
She got into the library and then head for a section. She saw a new quote hanged on the wall.
A library is a place where you can lose your innocence without losing your virginity.
She was a bit shocked, then she stared at the frame for a while and then understanding light in her mind.
I lost my innocence years ago when I read eroticas. When I can read about the gore killings in history and not flinch, Katrina thought to herself.
She saw the book on the shelf “An Encyclopedia about Sex and sexual health”. She borrowed this book and went home to read. All she has read so far were fiction, it was time to learn the real thing.
