The Lovely and Talented LindaGHill said : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “book.” Use any meaning of the word as your theme, or simply mention the word “book” in your post. Enjoy!
Now as my Press the Button Story started as an SoCs last Saturday I have decided to combine my ongoing story with this weeks SoCs . Now I have been writing the story all week and each post has been a stream of consciousness post. So shall we continue.
Was I in a book or a film I had no idea if I was on my head or my toes. Here we were yet again outside an airlock with a button with press emblazoned on it. The type of order that books no argument. Here we were hanging around this airlock and no one else will press the button so again it is all down to me.
So I press the button and the outer door on the airlock opens and we enter, it closes with a woosh and again we watch as the pressure is sucked out. Then the inner door opens and we enter the body of the ship. None of us have ever seen anything like this before.
This place looked like nothing we had ever seen, it was mainly metallic but unbelievably soft to the touch. There was soft yellow lighting and blue arrows leading us deep into the heart of the ship. Dean took the lead followed by Kaylie and James with me , as usual bringing up the rear! We followed the arrows and walked for half an hour.
Finally we found ourselves at the heart, the very center of the ship. It was a brightly lit space with a huge reading desk in the middle of the floor. There were bookcases lining the walls all full of books with sliding ladders all over the place. What caught my eye immediately was the huge book open on the reading desk in the middle of the room.
We all moved in close and I looked at the cover to see what the title was…. It was called The Book.
To be continued…….
