Brains (starving challenge)

Samu’s eyes burned and his throat was dry. His fingers twitched, yearning to have the comforting feel of soft paper between them. And then he saw it.


It was heaven, a mirage, a fantasy come true right before him! He ran inside and gazed upon the mountains of books before him, wondering just how many it would take before his hunger for good literature was satisfied. The shelves were filled with promises and the smell of ink and parchment hung in the air so heavily, Samu found himself breathing heavier just to drink more of it in.

It was wonderful and amazing.

So amazing, in fact, that when Samu’s brain tried to process the perfection of his surroundings and appropriately appreciate such an occasion…. his brain exploded. A feast that large was just too much for the starving man.
