Clotho smiled slightly. "I think Lachesis would agree with you," she said. "Then again, she thinks biscuits go well with most things. She likes to cook and feed people, it's the Mother, I think. It's who she is. But anyway, it's nice to meet you, Thomas."
"Sappho is here?" Atropos asked, coming up behind them. "I think we have some of her poetry in the next section, it's usually fairly popular." To Clotho, she said, "Lachesis says dinner in an hour."
Clotho nodded. "Would you like some tea?" she asked Thomas.
