"It could not possibly be because my partner is a professional imbecile. My ire is genetic. Such an unfortunate being is the Time Grump; doomed to wander the multiverse forever with two shrivelled hearts, being constantly irritated by small trivial things." The Notary's tone made it crystal clear which small and trivial things she meant... or it did to an adult. Whether or not Jasmine twigged, we can only speculate.

This may have accounted for the grin spreading across her face like a particularly unpleasant oil slick; it's the sort of smile nobody wants directed at anyone, least of all a little girl.

Wobbles, meanwhile, just continued to smile like an actual person. She got out another fistful of sculpting balloons and got to work, instead electing to try the Last Homely House. After a few minutes of idle chit-chat with Tanfin, she presented him with his very own Last Homely Hat.
