"Is it working?" Mina asks, coming down the path towards where Tiero is sitting with the kits curled up next to him.
"Well, they're finding the books."
"But still licking them?" She grins and sits down. "When they're trained, you will look for books with them?"
"Well, Inric has Copper already."
"I suppose, but..." Tiero looks away. He hasn't given much thought to how the kits would be used once trained. "I'm not a librarian. And I can't do magic."
"Really? I thought all Eldarin could."
"Yes, but I'm not..." Tiero lets that trail off, not wanting to explore what the word "cleric" means. Anyway, that wasn't an issue here. "I never learned," he says instead, and he wonders.
