Evelyn Stones
A moment of peace.
Sat Aug 4, 2018 22:02

All the excitement of new faces and new friends and new everything had left Evelyn rather...exhausted. At her first opportunity, she'd made her excuses and slipped away, disappearing to the one place in which she knew she'd always find solace , even without having been there before: the library.

Climbing trees was all well and good, but she hadn't had an opportunity to survey the local wooded areas (and hated to concede that there might not be much in the desert of Arizona), and wasn't sure how long it would take her to find a good place outside. Every library had books though, and books were always good.

She had had concerns that this particular library would be lacking in the areas she enjoyed to read about most-- philosophy and religion-- but found herself pleasantly surprised and soon was diving into a book on the ethics of muggle liaisons.

Tucked into a comfortable seat, feet tucked up and knees at her chest, Evelyn propped the book up in front of her and began reading. She'd never considered how different countries might address moral issues regarding the protection of magical people and how that appeared in relations with non-magical people. It was a fascinating read and she lost herself in the pages.

Which is why it was so surprising that her attention was drawn to someone as they approached. She blinked and look up at them, curiosity on her face.

"Hi," she said blankly.
