I always seem to have a googol-and-a-half writing projects going on at any one time…but I think that, out of all of my current ones, this one may just be my favourite. :)

The bell above the shop door swings; heavy, slow.
Back, and forth, and back again, soundwaves barely making their way through the wet-thick summer air, and the shopkeeper smiles just as slowly in response as she turns.

Close the door behind you, then.
The girl does so, and tilts her head.
But where am I?
