<BirdsOfTrinity> She taps her foot. "Something is--different about you today. Did Zahara do something to your hair?"
<BirdsOfTrinity> "In any case, you're looking well. You mentioned something about some books?"
<Cerin> "Thank you, and yes, if you are not too busy, I would like to talk to you about books."
<BirdsOfTrinity> "I'd be happy to." She gestures toward a garden table and chair. "Shall we sit?"
<BirdsOfTrinity> "The book is the same; I only have to define what I wish it to contain, and the pages fill of their on volition, supplied by my knowledge and that of anyone that reads it."
<BirdsOfTrinity> "It is difficult, and very draining on my Essence...I am attuned to it even now. I hope to find a way to change that, soon."
<Cerin> "Could such a book also draw the pictures it would need?"
<BirdsOfTrinity> "I think I can maintain two or three books at a time, until I find a method to stabilise them; yes, they can illustrate themselves, if that is needed." She looks away a moment, as if speculating. "Maybe it's possible to create a book, abandon it, then reattune it as necessary. I will have to experiment further."
<Cerin> "It would be good if you could. Sometime soon, though I fear it might not be for many months with the war, I would like to climb the mountains of Xiyi, and I would like to have at least one of your books in my bag."
<BirdsOfTrinity> "You'll have to find them first. But I'll be glad to help. I can even include an appendinx that describes the technique, so you can learn it if you have a year or so to spare."
<BirdsOfTrinity> "Ssithumi..." she murmurs, supporting her chin with her hand, "do you ever think that she knows more than she lets on? When she is around I always feel as if I am sitting on the steps of a library, its gates shut."
<BirdsOfTrinity> "This is true."
<BirdsOfTrinity> "It's slow, but better organised!"
<BirdsOfTrinity> "It's very nice. Has it always been like that?"
<Cerin> "It was once, a long time ago."
<BirdsOfTrinity> "It is good to meet your old self."
<Cerin> "I will try to keep him around I think, his looks if nothing else."
<Cerin> "I will leave you now," he says with a smile. "See you later."
<BirdsOfTrinity> "Don't get in trouble while you're gone."
