floor un&erfoot/ $ases of ,ooks on the walls (&isintergrate) an& in the centre is a ta,le an& ,ench/
(the rat 6umps up onto the ta,le)/ 0y the ta,le is a figure you ha+e ne+er seen ,efore ' a tall- lean
man of &ea& ,lack colouration- wholly &e+oi& of either hair or ,ear& an& wearing a ro,e of hea+y
,lack fa,ric/ (&oes not speak an& is e#pressionless) He points at a huge ,ook which is open on the
ta,le/ 2he ol& woman thrusts a .uill into your han&/ (the furry thing runs up onto your shoul&er
