If it becomes too much for her,
she grabs a book,
turns deaf to the world,
and pours herself into a trance.
The book is all she hears
and gets lost in the story.
With each turning page,
her heartbeat increases,
her breath stutters.
And as the climax approaches,
slowly and gradually,
into the paper world she disappears!
