slice of life

novice reader: I've been reading a gripping novel. And only of late that I realized that I am down to its last few chapters. Overwhelmed by the beauty of the story, I wish to delay finishing it. I may not be ready yet to see its conclusion.

masterful author: what you're reading is merely the first installment of a trilogy. it's a book you need to finish reading. You'll not be able to go to the next book without finishing it first.
Go ahead.
