"Oh, Magistra Colle!" Mina's excited voice jerks Colle from her book and she sighs in irritation as Jakin chimes in as well.
"Did he come again?"
"Yes," Colle says, keeping her frustration hidden as she turns to face the children. "He's in the records room."
"What does he want?"
"Records," Colle says tartly, then winces, but Jakin hasn't noticed.
"Did he meet Inric?"
"No, I -"
"What do you think he'll say?"
But Mina has noticed, even if Jakin is oblivious. She nudges her brother and says something in their own language.
They leave, and Colle turns back to her books.
"I should tell Inric to stay away. Walking all day would be restful in comparison!"
