I burst into the kitchen- home at last!
I still had the two serpents hovering behind me. "Lidia, you wouldn't happen to have a book on rare and possibly magical creatures that I can borrow, would you?"
In the meantime, I decided a snack was in order. And maybe I should butter Lidia up a little since I'm asking a favor.
The kitchen came alive as I started making crepes. I took out the industrial-sized tub of Nutella and planted it next to where the stack would go.
Meanwhile, my two companions looked at each other, runes flashing on their heads as they communicated.
