It was something that queenchuki said that made me think of the book. She suggested that maybe Amanda is the keeper of important things, and that Play It Again Sam is a safe haven for these objects. It made me think of the book that Amanda gave to me, the first edition copy of Ariel and the time I finally told Hal and Callie about it in my room.
“ I closed my eyes and tried to imagine where she bought it. And old book shop? A random yard sale?.....I dropped the book and opened my eyes, my brain whirling with questions. Those visions had been so intense… so specific. “This is all too peculiar.” I exhaled.
And this made me think about that mirror at Play It Again Sam’s. Which made me think about all the stories that flood through my head, all the stories I ignore.
