Bookseller

The girl at the counter looked extremely bored. The time was around 9:30 pm and there what appeared to be only a handful or less of customers left in the store. She wore her typical uniform of a large sweater, skirt and tights. Some days she wore lipstick on others attempted cat eye makeup. Every once in a while, she paced back and forth or looked around behind the counter for something to read. Eventually, she got bored of that as well and put whatever she attempted to read back. She leaned on the counter waiting for a customer to appear to check out. This went on until closing which was at 11:00 pm today. 
"I guess this is what I look like to the people in the store." she said.
