"Indeed! I simply adore the stories of Queen Ella of Frell," Penny confessed, finding that her fear was abating a bit as she reminisced about favorite stories. "They're such a wonderful combination of adventure and romance!" Of course, Penny did so love her romantic stories, though she did enjoy a good adventure as well, something she had picked up from her sister, though Matt's taste for adventure stories had prompted her to start reading more of them, which she found she was enjoying more than she might have expected.
Penny was certainly heartened by Era's enthusiasm, which though intimidating, was certainly sincere and something she could appreciate. While she was still a bit cautious (she was a dragon, after all), she was no longer quite as terrified.
"I enjoy stories with a bit of romance," she confessed, "though your taste in stories reminds me a bit of my friend's. I choose books for him to read sometimes and I've been reading quite a bit more lately so that I can talk about them with him afterward. Have you read the tale of the Unlucky Adventurer? I read it recently and I found it to be quite funny." Penny did so enjoy having people to talk about books with, though she had never would have suspected finding herself in this particular situation!
