28. Clarke is Afraid. Miranda is Afraid.

The only sounds are Miranda’s page turning and Lye’s banter with the volunteer librarian.

“So you’re from White Haven?” Lye drawls.

“Does he have to talk to everyone?” Shou hisses under his breath.

Miranda glares at Shou. “It breaks up the monotony.”

Shou winces, embarrassed that she heard him, and then is embarrassed that he winced. “Is there anyone he doesn’t like?”

“No, I’m from Riverdale.”

“What a commute!”

Miranda looks exhausted. Is she sleeping alright? Shou scratches his arm.

At last she says, “Most people, but it takes his mind off of being here,” and returns to her novel.
