I pull out my phone to check my messages the second I exit my parents’
house. My parents live close to downtown, so I can walk to work each day.
Today is my first day, and I am so excited. I’m finally a full-time librarian,
whereas before I was only a volunteer. Hence why I still lived at home. My
mom and dad would give me small jobs to do for their accounting firm to
earn some extra money on the side while I took some online college
I’m pretty sure they didn’t want me to go away to college any more than
I wanted to leave Troping. I love it here, and even though I may not have
been born in this town, I was raised here. This place is where my parents
adopted me when I was only a few days old. I don’t think they could have
hidden the fact that I was adopted, not with my wild red hair, green eyes,
and all my curves.
It’s a stark contrast to them, but it never mattered. They are my mom
and dad, and I’ll never see them any other way. Even if they can be a bit
overbearing at times. Not in a controlling way, but my mom can be nosy.
Today she even packed my lunch, which I’m thankful for, but I’m also
I’ve been volunteering at the Troping library since I was old enough to
read. Mrs. Kringle would give me small tasks at first, and the older I got,
the more she would let me do. I thought there was no way I’d be asked to
take over her position when she retired, but I could run the place in my
sleep. Whenever Mrs. Kringle wasn’t there, I could do everything she did,

When both Mayor North and Mrs. Kringle pulled me in for a meeting
and asked if I would take over, I almost screamed with excitement, yet I
somehow managed to keep it together.
A message pops across my screen, and of course it’s my mom. This is
what I mean by overbearing. She stuffed me with breakfast and kissed my
cheek before I went out the door, and she’s already texting me. I’m not even
all the way down our sidewalk yet.
Mom: Have a great first day! Love you. See you tonight.
Me: Love you too.
She’s so full of it because we both know I will not see her tonight. I bet
all the icicles in Troping that she’ll end up at the library at some point this
afternoon. I smile when I see I have a text from Snow.
Snow: You’ll do great
Me: Did you read it?
Snow: Of course I read it.
Me: Why aren’t you saying something?!
Is she trying to kill me with suspense? I met Snow in an online book
club. I have one in Troping that’s in person, but sometimes a girl needs a
few book clubs. I read a lot, and I want to talk about what I’m reading all
