Mouse Soup

I forced Will to sit with me on the couch. I wanted to read him a book. I opened the cover and saw my name carefully printed inside in green marker. I started reading. Will wasn’t really excited and tried talking over me. I had him read a couple of pages but he said, “No more reading.” He began wondering if the book was ever going to end. “So, the end,” he said hopefully. I kept reading. “So, the end,” he repeated. He was happy when I finished. And I saw my name again on the back cover. I guess to remind anyone reading the book that it was mine.
