After sending away Wilde, Lin Jie pulled out a book from the shelves, The Interpretation of Dreams, and began to browse through it.

This book was one of Freud's famous works as well as a groundbreaking piece on psychoanalysis.

As an unorthodox work published in an era way behind its time, many of the theories were discredited by scientists and caused a great deal of dispute.

Now, he was rereading this book to view it from a different line of thought and reasoning.

The theory in this book suggests that dreams were the unconscious desires and stimuli from childhood memories.

Dreams were also a truthful exchange between a person and his heart as well as the process of learning from himself.

Lin Jie had read this book before but he now wanted to do a little revision because of the recent dream he had.

As he browsed for a bit, Lin Jie felt idle and wondered if he should grab other relevant books to read as well.

At this time, the door to the bookstore was pushed open.

Hmm? Are there winds of fortune blowing? Why are customers coming one after another?

But thinking of it, this change seemed to occur on the day Old Wil gave me that stone gargoyle.

Could it be that besides warding away ill-fortune and evil, it also has fengshui properties of inviting wealth?

Tsk, just borrowing books would do. Why give me a local specialty?

This makes me even busier than before and I'm even frequently being interrupted from my reading.

This... this is simply un...refusable! Bring on more troubles!

Lin Jie put down the book in his hand and put on his professional smile as he glanced over. "Welcome! Would you be borrowing, reading, or buying books? Also, feel free to ask if you have any queries."

"Can I really ask any question?" The lady that entered had a voice that was both gentle and pleasant.

From what Lin Jie saw, this new customer's nice and gentle appearance matched her voice.

Fair skin, blueish jade eyes, and a head of luxuriant gold hair gave her an air of astounding beauty. The entire gloomy bookstore seemed to light up with her appearance.

Lin Jie's gaze lingered on her ear. The pair of sharp, long ears definitely captured his attention.
