Evey hated standing in line.
If what she was waiting for was good, it couldn’t come soon enough. Being queued up simply gave her anticipation time to expand and grow into excited anxiousness. But if what she was waiting for was bad, standing in line gave the dread time to grow and consume her.
Standing in the middle of the bookstore’s fake wood shelves and warm earth tones, Evey bounced back and forth between excited anxiousness and crushing dread. She was only a few feet away from the Graham Sellers, author of the world famous Perry Watson series. There were people who would literally pay through the nose - were it physically possible - to meet the writer. But Evey was annoyed too.
