So, there I was.

Sitting at my desk, writing a movie review for Response magazine’s website.

Out the window in front of me, the courtyard was thrashing in October wind and rain. Leave of extraordinary colors were breaking free and forming a dance of intertwining cyclones.

Students dashed by on their way to class.

One student, a woman I have never seen before, passed by. She was leaning forward and intent on her way to class. But as she passed me, she paused and thought for a moment. Then she took out a notebook and scribbled something down.

She came back, stopped at the window right in front of me (the back of my desk is up against the window). She pressed the notebook to the glass.

The message read, “I READ YOUR BOOK AND I LIKED IT A LOT.”

Then she turned and was gone.

I don’t know who she is.

But I’m grateful.

If you’re reading this, Mystery Reader, thank you for making my day. You caught me by suprise.
