Winston nodded in agreement. "That works for me. I'd prefer not to just sit around waiting, too. Hang on, let me just put this back." He held up the intermediate textbook to show her what he was talking about and then brought it back up to Professor O'Malley's desk.

"You can," he scanned down the recipe further, "chop the Sopophorous bean while I do that. We ought to get everything prepared first before we start brewing so we're not rushing over it later. It looks like everything goes into this one pretty quick. Are your asphodel petals whole or powdered?"

"And they do have some different ingredients," he added thoughtfully in answer to her earlier question, "so maybe they both exist so that if you have lavender but not wormwood, or the other way around, you can still make a sleeping draught. Sleeping draughts sound like useful things you might want to be able make quickly with the ingredients you have on hand in the middle of the night when you can't sleep." It was pure speculation, of course, but it made sense to him, and he hoped it did to her, too.
