Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature, hosted by Jenn at Books and a Beat.
Books had long outgrown their shelves and were now stacked in precarious piles on and around his bed, several more open and splayed, pages down, across the sheet. Some people favored a genre or subject; August had little preference, so long as it wasn't fiction - he wanted to learn everything about the world as it was, had been, could be. As someone who had come quite suddenly into being, like the end of a magic trick, he feared the tenuous nature of his existence, feared that at any moment he might simply cease to be again.
