Prompt: Library

It hadn't been a library at all at first. In the beginning, Jenna'd just told her friend Maddie she could borrow whatever she wanted from her extensive collection of English literature. It had been casual.

And then Carlos wanted in, too. Like the bookworm he was, he asked her also if he could borrow.

"What?" she'd exclaimed. "You, too?"

"Yeah. I hear you have all of Charles Dickens' books? I love those book. Could you lend me 'The Tale of Two Cities'?" He'd responded.

It wasn't like she could say no. "Sure," she said, although her better judgement argued that he'd be irresponsible with her precious, leather-bound books.
