It's a library of sorts.
At least, that's what you assume as you walk into the large, high-walled room. There are shelves everywhere, stuffed full of scrolls and tablets. The walls are the color of faded jade and the floors are a clean, polished white.
Can I help you?
You start and glance about, unsure of where the voice came from. It is then you notice the ladder leaning against the farthest shelf; perched at the top is a zafara. He slowly climbs down, pausing only to grab a scroll tied with a red thread. You take this chance to examine him closely. His hair is messy and pale, and his skin is an unobstrusive shade of grey. The only thing that stands out about him is the glittering gold key around his neck and harshness of his green gaze.
Undaunted by your lack of a response and your curious look, he approaches you with a haughty step. Without further ado the scroll in his paws is shoved into yours.
There. I'll bet my whole library that Kerry sent you here to read that.
You sneak a quick glance at the title and nod.
Hmph. Then get to it. Don't be long, though. The zafara stares at you, his emerald eyes piercing. He then turns and leaves without a further glance.
Reverentially, you unroll the cracked parchment and begin to read.
