“Leather or cloth?”
Can’t I go for something else?
“No. You’re too young. You need to ease into this.”
But I really think I’d be better off with wood!
“Wood? Are you serious? At your age? Don’t make me laugh.”
I’ll have you know I am small for my age.
“Look, I don’t really care. Leather or cloth. Choose!”
Throwing a glance that should have made the adult shrivel but had no effect whatsoever, Gabriel grumbled and went back to his friends.
Well? they asked excitedly.
No use! I got leather or cloth. I chose leather, because no self-respecting book worm will start with cloth. Still, I suppose it’s better than paper.
The other borer worms nodded their heads in agreement.
