Holiday Happy Kids

The library was very silent and there wasn’t anyone inside. The librarian was very sad that nobody came to the library. It was night and closed the library. The next morning, the librarian came and opened the library. One man came and he asked if he could read in the library. Then he paid some money, took some books and the librarian noticed that he was a very slow reader..

The librarian was going to see if some people would come or not. The man started reading and he was only on the first page for half an hour. The man turned just one page and he closed the book. He took the small book and started reading. Then another man came to the library.

 Then the two men started talking.

The slow reader said, “My name is Rohan. How should I call you?”

The other man answered, “My name is Mohan.”

Mohan got a call and told he had some work so he gave some money to the librarian and left the library.



It was breakfast time so Rohan went and bought some food and came to the library.

He was eating in the library and was reading books. The librarian slept for some time in the library. Rohan finished eating and finished that short book. Then he was taking some other short books but he had seen an awesome novel. The librarian just woke up and saw Rohan taking the awesome novel which was only for paid members. Librarian told Rohan that it is for paid members . Rohan told he would pay and read this book. 

The librarian said “ok”. 

And he paid money for the novel and started reading the novel. It was awesome. He was reading it very slowly. But the novel was only half, the other half of that was not there. He told the librarian that the half novel is not there. The librarian told Rohan that it will be somewhere in the shelf. Rohan and the librarian started searching for the novel. It was under the table.

 Rohan said, “Got it, librarian.”

and the other half was very big.

 It was lunchtime. Rohan wanted to finish the novel so he brought lunch to the library. He couldn’t finish the second half. So he planned to take some other book but he paid money for the novel.



He started eating lunch. When he finished his lunch, he felt so sleepy. So he slept in the library itself. The librarian saw that he was sleeping. 

The librarian switch on the fans on and the lights off. The librarian also slept well. 

It was evening and two of them woke up and Rohan started reading. After some minutes he finished reading the novel. He talks sometimes with the librarian and takes someone to read for so much time. He was thirsty and he went out of the library and brought some water bottles and the librarian was going to close to the library because he thought that he was gone. It was night 9:00pm and it was dinner time the librarian was eating dinner and he shared food with Rohan.



He has finished reading all the books he had taken. He was very tired but he was very happy to be there with the librarian. The librarian was also happy that a man had come to his library and the librarian thanked Rohan for coming. It was hours he stayed there so he returned home with some books in the library and told everyone to go to the library.

He also came daily to the library and bought some books and read some books and talked to the librarian everyday.The librarian was happy that many people were coming to the library. The librarian thanked Rohan and gave him some books from the library.

I think you did a really nice job on this. It was clear and I could follow it easily. I liked the short sentences and how one thought led to the next. As you continue writing, you might want to explore adding some drama to the events, but that's just something to keep in mind. Right now, just keep on writing no matter what!

Hey, tell as many people as you can that Reedsy's updating this Thursday-Friday and to remember your password, because after it updates you'll need to know it to prove it's you and we don't want people getting locked out. So yeah. Please please PLEASE tell others about this!!! (from Dhwani Jain)

I sent that message to Carefree Chicken (as it is written in brackets there) It meant that Reedsy was updating, so there was a chance at that time that you would have to type in all your info again. So this was just a message for all the people I knew that you need to remember your passwords so that you can login easily.
