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 to the portrait.
The librarian looked up and smiled. “Oh, him. That’s my grandfather.”
Ranveer nodded, still looking at the portrait.
The librarian still smiling – “And he too loved reading horror books. Just like you.”
Ranveer gulped. “I’m sure he did. He’s the one reading Stine's book upstairs.”
