"Thank you very much, I appreciate your time and assistance," Sascha said with a serene smile. "My name is Sascha Murakami. If we could just start at the front of the library? I'm hoping that there are signs on the stacks that I will be able to feel to tell me what the call numbers are? But if you could also just give me a general idea of which section is which?

The library had the potential to be a challange for Sascha. It depended entirely how it was laid out of course, where and how signs labeling the shelves were placed. It seemed a good idea to be... more
Feeling someone standing over him, Will looked up slowly. He instinctively moved his arm towards his wand, ready to defend himself if need be. It was silly, because if someone wanted to harm him,... more
Sascha cocked his head slightly and clicked again with his tongue, the slight whisper of clothes, the man's shift in positions, all bespoke tension to Sascha. As did an undertone in the man's voice.... more
For the first time, Will noticed the student's white cane. Apparently, whether the student was male or female, he or she was definitely blind. He'd never met anyone disabled before, unless he counted ... more
Sascha blinked, his green-blue eyes very vibrant and unexpected considering his dark hair and features that suggested Asian decent, and an accent that underlined his Asian features. His pupils tended ... more
"Oh, no, it's fine, no imposition at all." Will assured him or her. This was part of his job and he at least had to be able to do what was required of him. Otherwise, he might be fired, when it was a ... more
