This year’s Flash Fiction book is now available for patrons in the Burton Library, but oh my, I am concerned. Not wishing to concern the citizens of New Babbage, I have tried to deal with this on my own, without success.
The Flash Fiction book is late because Miss Capalini has been behaving strangely for some time now. She’s been spending an inordinate time in the library archives. I suspect she’s discovered something there. I don’t know what, but I do know it has something to do with the history of New Babbage. She won’t come out of the archives, even going to the point of locking herself inside. She won’t talk and refuses all help.
What could it be? What is causing her to behave so out of character? This is so not like Ms Capalini. I am worried, very worried.
