  • (whisper) umm... is there anyway, you guys, you words in these books, can crawl out of your homes and fly through my head, you can perch there forever if you want to or keep flying in the sky... can I tell you a story to bring you out of these pages or sing to you the sweetest song from 17th century or feed you some chocolate cake or sprinkle coconut water on you? Crawl out dear words, my sky needs you.
