Do you really think that? Or just fear it?

Mary looked up, pleased that Mr. Montoir had gone to the shelf of books. He'd gone immediately to the section of Chinese language books (although she was quite sure some of them were mixed up with the wrong languages or dialects and things), and she was not too surprised when he called to her again. Him asking about the sorting of books made her think of Tabitha, which of course made her feel all sorts of things she didn't want to feel, and so she reframed the thoughts as quickly as she could.

"Another professor helped me sort these, actually, I'm not sure how she did it. You're welcome to rearrange them if you'd like," Mary said as she moved around her desk and went to stand beside Mr. Montoir. He was nearly as tall as she was, which was a bit intimidating since he'd seemed smaller than many of those in his same class. She was used to being small, though, and didn't mind too much. "When I sort them myself, I usually sort them by what I was told they're about."

Mary pointed to one book with a red spine. "This one was about the history of potion masters in China, so I sorted it by H. This one," a book with a green spine and tattered gold print, "was about ingredients native to China, so I sorted it by I. It's not a very good system, mind you, but it works so far!"

She considered for a moment. "Honestly," she said quietly, "I'd love some help sorting them. Any ideas?"
