Caught Off Guard

For Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge

Lost in the pages,

Those beautiful words,

Bringing a smile on her face,

She was caught off guard.

The volume of the external,

Not bothering her the least,

Feeling more than alive,

She felt the release.

And as the pages turned,

She waited with a bated breath,

The characters too close,

Hoping for no blunder till the end.
