"Oh." Leareth looks worried. "I suppose I cannot really be surprised that Vanyel is sick now, he is bad at caring for himself." 

Permalink

"It can happen to anyone, it happened to two of yours too."

Permalink

"Nobody told me. Are they all right?" 

Permalink

"Sorry, I should've said. They're most likely going to be fine."

Permalink

"Oh. Good." Leareth puts down his plate, which he's cleaned thoroughly. "I had better let you get back to work. I miss you, though. This is really not what I had hoped we were coming down for." 

Permalink

"It really isn't. I'll be back for dinner. I'll keep an eye out for books or playing cards or something."

Permalink

"Thank you." 

Permalink

"Of course." She kisses his head and performs her very tedious leaving-an-infected-room ritual and goes back to work. Asks about things Leareth could keep occupied with.

Gemma doesn't have any books or anything, but there's a temple to Kernos in town and temples often have books, they run schools there nowadays - the school itself is closed because everything in town is closed due to the plague, but probably a priest is in and might be willing to leave some books out for her to collect from a distance.

"Enh, better not interact with a church just now. Maybe I'll just make a chess set by writing 'pawn' and so on on scraps of paper."

Permalink

"Fair enough." Gemma makes a face. "Might be worth asking the Heralds if they brought reading material and can leave it out front of their room, he's already had it so he's not going to get it from touching someone else's book, as long as you're careful collecting it..." 

Permalink

"That's a good idea." :Amshalan, anybody's Herald bring spare books? Leareth's bored:

Permalink

:I absolutely don't blame him! I bet Van brought books, he reads constantly, I'll ask 'Fandes: Pause. :Yes, several, some are in his room but he brought one to occupy himself while watching Savil and he can leave it outside their door: 

Permalink

:Would he mind if I went and got some out of his room? Or is it just warded to hell and back, that would fox me unless I wound up with a surprising amount of Fetching at the end of the day. If I can go in I could bring him some of them too if he's bored with the one:

Permalink

:He says there are wards but he can key you to be let through them if you stand outside Savil's door for a moment:

So around dinnertime she brings over their dinner herself and stands outside their door and then goes and has a look at the book selection.

Permalink

There's a book on magic and a couple of books of historical ballads and Seldasen on ethics. 

Permalink

She will bring Vanyel one of the ballads and his magic book and bring the others back to Leareth along with dinner.

Permalink

Vanyel thanks her through the closed door; he's not feeling too terrible, getting quickly on top of the illness even with his weak Healing is helping, but he's so bored now that he's not able to help the other Healers. 

Permalink

:I'm planning to make a paper chess set, you could do that too and play with Savil if she's pulling through all right:

Permalink

:That's a good idea!: 

Permalink

:Next time I have a minute I can bring you the books we brought and have already read:

And time to go have dinner with Leareth.

Permalink

Leareth is really relieved and grateful to have entertainment. He's been napping even more than he actually needs to, just out of sheer boredom. 

He smiles at the copy of Seldasen on ethics, though. "I have read this several times already. I suppose why not read it again." 

Permalink

"There weren't a ton to choose from. I didn't want to try the church library, at least not without running it by you." She eats quickly, starts making a paper chess set.

Permalink

"Which temple order is it?"
