Usually my kids use this nook to do their homework, but this morning I'm sitting here working on Weird Tales with Red Tin Bot. :-)
Here's Part 2 of THE SCROLL OF GREATNESS. Enjoy!

The exhibition would be over soon!
I looked around frantically. Should I keep waiting for Aisha? Or would she understand if I went in on my own?
For so many nights I had been dreaming about the Scroll of Greatness. Would I miss my chance to examine it?
The man was closing the door just as I made up my mind.

I dashed across the street, squeezing my way between a cart and some coolies, but I was too late, he didn’t notice me.
