On a Wednesday, In a Cafe

An introverted shy girl finds a secret note in her library book. Then it happens again. Is it just a coincidence? A sweet romantic story inspired by Taylor Swift’s song ‘Begin Again’.

I am quiet. I own one plant. My idea of a good time is a cup of tea and a good book . I am basically an old lady in a 23 year old body. So how could this happen to me???

  It all started with a book-  the Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. It’s funny how after all these years I still remember the name of the book and the exact chapter and page I was on when I found the note.

  It was written on a torn piece of ruled paper folded twice :

“You forget what you want to remember and you remember what you want to forget”.

I googled it , it was from a book.

In hindsight I wonder what was it about that note that sparked my curiosity. I, who spent considerable time and energy trying to avoid people suddenly wanted to meet the mysterious author of the note, whoever they might be . It was absurd, it was silly, it was absolutely irrational but the next morning found me checking out The Road by Cormac MacCarthy. I was just getting to the interesting part when the second note fell out.

   It was written on a yellow sticky note and it said:

‘not all those who wander are lost “.

Now I was more curious then ever.
