Chapters and Things
After a nice evening walk in the city, you end up in front of a two storey brick store.

"Here we are," Patricia said.

"Here we are," agreed Xavier.  "So, uh..."

He started to lean in, but slightly.  If she didn't want a good night kiss, he didn't want to overdo it.

Xavier kissed back, then wandered off with a dazed "Good night!"

Re: Chapters and Things
Patricia's got her nose buried in a book at the counter as you walk in. No one else seems to be in the store.

"Hey, Patricia," said Xavier.  "I brought the books over.  And, uh, some cookies, if you want them."

"Sure thing," said Xavier.  "I just kind of stumbled over them, you know?"

"That's really good luck," Patricia said, as she took the books from you. "Thanks again."

She looked over the diary.

"Oh wow, I can't believe you found this."

"Weird coincidence," said Xavier.  "...might not be one, I guess.  Weird things happen, especially with magic."

"You don't understand, this guy is a bogeyman of the magic community," Patricia said.

"Goes after you guys still?" guessed Xavier. "And him still alive after all these centuries..."

"Supposedly," Patricia said. "There's no concrete proof. I haven't seen anything."

"If there's a picture, we can keep an eye out," said Xavier.  "...is there one?  A woodcut, maybe, or something like that?"

"And he wouldn't have included that in his own diary," sighed Xavier.  "So what's the other book?"

Re: Chapters and Things
Patricia flipped through it.

"Interesting. It appears to be a book on demon summoning rituals. One's I haven't even heard of."

Patricia leaned over and gave you a kiss on your cheek.

"Okay, you're a keeper."

Re: Chapters and Things
Xavier grinned.

"...Uh, do you actually summon demons?"  It was a worrying prospect.

"No, but I have plenty of books about that kept safely behind wards. You don't want amateurs getting hold of something like this," Patricia said.

"Okay, good," said Xavier.  "Man, I wonder how many people saw this book before now?  I hope nobody took notes..."
