[Martin laughed delightedly. That was a wonderful answer, and now— now he was going to dash around to the other side.]
I will— and right now I don’t care much if these things try to attack me, it’s all a bit like, like going to a zoo and wanted to walk into the lion pen just because they look fantastic. Which is stupid and I never, ever said that!
[He darted around the side.]
Of course you didn’t, dear. [Jim took the opportunity to pass his hand over the very book that he’d warned Martin off, not quite containing a pleased smile at the simultaneous pushpull it gave off. His houserunes were doing quite well. He moved to follow Martin, albeit at a slower pace than the other.]
Feel free to examine at your leisure- the room isn’t going anywhere.
Ha-haaa I find that hard to believe… [Martin grinned over his shoulder and let his jaw drop, giving a short, bewildered laugh as he stared up at the shelves.] This place— Oh. Oh my god that—
I want this for myself. [He gave another laugh, shook his head.] I’m envious, I don’t really get envious… Oh but it’s beautiful.
