Elrien glanced down at the book she had been reading as Marcellus asked her about it after saying hello. She gave a light shrug of her shoulders.
"Not really. It's one of the more boring books my tutor wants me to read. More full of facts than stories. I usually like histories, because they're stories. But this book seems to be more focused on names and dates. So many names and numbers, it's hard to remember it all," Elrien sighed, setting it aside, then realized he had come to her from a different direction than most approached her from, since most came to her through a straight path from the door.
"If I may ask, you seem to have come from the opposite direction as the door. Any particular reason for this?" she inquired, obviously more out of curiosity than anything else.
