‘The Recipient’ By Dean Mayes

What on earth am I going to find?

Lionel pushed through his doubt and tapped the door three times, then lowered his hand to the handle. He opened the door and quietly stepped into the room. Its starkness assaulted him at once. The walls were painted in a crisp white. Though a high window allowed light and the colour of the grounds beyond into the room, a cold and clinical feeling enveloped him – and it wasn’t pleasant. There was a single bed. Actually, it wasn’t even a bed. Rather, it was a large, vinyl-encased piece of foam with a pillow, sheets and a quilt.

No metal or fittings that could be used as a weapon to harm – or to inflict self-harm, Lionel thought.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
