There certainly was something odd going on in the Chamber of Codes. Laurel and Adam were being nice to each other! Adam blinked, shocked that Laurel hadn’t come back with some sharp short retort to his apology. If anyone had asked him, he’d had said that he was Laurel’s least favorite person on Level 9 because he always seemed to find a way to upset her. But apparently not today. He stood there confused for a moment as Laurel slipped off.

By the time she returned he had his composure together and was nodding along to her suggestion that they start looking for the rock pillows on level 9. He wasn’t really sure what he was going to do with them if he found them…levitate them back to the Decompression Chamber most likely. He still didn’t fully understand her aversion to the missing pillows, but he would indulge her due to her unusual congeniality.

But all other concerns disappeared when she agreed that the room was supposed to be quiet and that she had come down alone to the chamber. That creeping feeling that had been traveling up Adam’s neck? Well, it shrouded his head for a moment and he stood there unable to process much besides the noise. Adam was, by no means, a brave person in the conventional sense. Nope…he’d rather face an unknown potion or explosion than an unknown opponent or charm or spell. He was rubbish at charms work and therefore dueling. And he didn’t have the touch for creature handling. ”Nein,” he said in answer to Laurel’s question. ” I have been alone all morning. Vou are zee first perzon I have zeen.”

He nodded at her suggestion that they figure out what was making the noises. Resisting the urge to produce his wand from his back pocket, Adam motioned that he was going to head around the other side of the bookshelf. He assumed Laurel would go back down the main aisle.
