Ranveer pushed the book towards the librarian, who looked at it with a frown.
“But I thought you wanted R.L. Stine’s Who Scares You the Most?
“Well yes, but an elderly gentleman was reading it. Didn’t have the heart…”
The librarian smiled and shrugged. “Ok, as you wish.”
Ranveer took the book and turned to leave when he saw a garlanded portrait on the wall, above the librarian.
He turned to the librarian. “Uh, sir, who’s he?” He pointed up.
The librarian looked up and then laughed. “Oh that. He’s my grandfather.”
Ranveer nodded, still looking at the portrait.
The librarian added – “Oh incidentally he too loved reading horror books, just like you.”
Ranveer licked his parched lips. “I’m sure he did. He’s still doing it. Upstairs.”
