"What?" Mina stares at her brother, utterly confused at his annoyance. "I put it back on the shelf, where it belongs!"
"But I hadn't finished reading it!"
"But you're halfway through the Astrakh Bestiary," Mina says, and indeed, that is the book Jakin is currently holding, one finger between the pages to mark his place.
"I'm reading them both!"
"You can't read two books at once! It's not fair on the books!"
"Shh!" They both pull up short at Ylva's urgent whisper. She is kneeling on the floor ahead of them, just next to a staircase leading down.
"I'm sorry!" Mina says, switching to Eldarin.
"What are you doing?" Jakin asks.
Ylva grins and beckons them closer. "Magistra Colle said, um, Inric yesterday had new hair. I want to see it!"
