The House of Knowledge

The building was different from the others, it was a single story, it was not shielded in steel instead, it had been covered in creeping vines.  Once we cut and pulled away the vines we saw a red brick building, it had double doors that had been chained and padlocked and it had something we hadn't seen in many years..glass.

Our mouths dropped, we pushed the doors open..a rush of air passed us from inside the building..

Books.. there must have been thousands of them, they were lined up along the walls, stacked on the floors, lying around on tables and, they were in tact.

We didn't find, anything electronic, no computer, no scanner, no printer, no cameras.. There was simply a building, filled with books. 

We walked in slowly, amazed at the sight and there in the middle of the room, was a stand, it had a huge book in the center that had been enclosed with glass.

We moved forward, we surrounded the case and stared down at the book.  There was a greeting... written in large gold script.

The End
