Era gave no thought to the comment Penny made. Of course she had no idea. It wasn't exactly something a lot of people considered in their spare time. Well, Era did, but she wasn't most people.
Era was delighted that she had found someone who liked to read. An educated human seemed a rare thing - judging by the very few she'd met. "Really? I - there are so very many good stories. I think the ones about Queen Ella of Frell are my favorites. Though the ones that include ogres are quite compelling. And there was another ruler - a king - long before Queen Ella that had many great adventures." Era was nearly tripping over her words with enthusiasm. She longed to talk to someone so badly. And Penny knew stories!
