Slowly Embah wakes up, she looks startled to find herself without the book she fell asleep with. Finding it on the table infront of her she quickly checks the pile to see if any are missing. After reassuring herself they are all there she settles down and begins to read again.

Embah enters the library and looks around checking that the large room is empty before placing her bag on the table. She moves to the nearest shelf quickly making her way around the room scanning the book spines as she gently runs her fingers across them. She pulls books out seemingly at random before hurriedly returning to the table where her bag is waiting.
Embah's head whips up as she whirls around to face the source of a crashing sound her lips are already forming the words she would use to summon forth fire but they die unsaid as her eyes fall on the cat that had knocked a candlestick from the table. She breathes a sigh of relief and turns back to quickly fill her bag with the selected volumes and moves towards the door. She checks the corridor is empty before stepping out. As she makes her way back to where she knows her sister will be waiting she trys to keep her pace steady and her face calm, although the effect is somewhat ruined by her nervous glances that she darts down every corridor intersection.

Hurrying down the corridors Embah pauses briefly a look of concentration passes across her face almost as if she were hearing a voice inside her head, the voice only she can hear is that of her sisters. She dismisses the message for the moment and hurries out of the academy and back to where her companions are waiting.

Skhye had not slept well and was up early, before day light she was already in the history section of the library with a big pile of books in front of her, some books she just skims through others she reads more tentatively, constantly cross referencing between books and taking notes in a little note pad.

**A loud crash is heard from outside, it seems to echo across the entire campus.**

The sudden break in silence startles Skhye, she drops the book she was reading and quickly heads out of the library and rushes down the corridor to see what caused the noise.

Later, after the ritual to heal the headmaster.

Shkye is back in the library,

Jasper arrives at the library about five minutes later, after leaving the group in the infermary pressuring one of the junior aides for payment.
He approaches Shkye.

Shkye briefly looks up from her book, both voice and expression void of emotion.

No. I do not want anything.

" Do you need to talk though? Or is there anything I can do to help. You only need to ask if there is. "

Shkye takes a few minutes to answer as she tries to think of any reason why she would need to talk but there was none.

There is nothing I need at this time, I will let you know when i need anything.

She looks away from Jasper and continues to read her book.

**Spines of books seem to slowly flourish into colour, not all.. but some. They start at the A's and gently descend through the B's before stopping, text that had been lost starts to return to them, yet it still looks faded and incomplete. There was much that needed to be restored.**

Jasper nods, he'd thought that perhaps she'd be confused due to having memories of emotions she could no longer feel, but it appears that Shkye is managing for now.

Jasper moves over to look at the spines of the books as they begin to resolve back into words.

By the time Shkye stands up to leave the library is mostly dark, all other students have long since gone to bed and the only light comes from the candle still flickering on the desk infrount of her. She takes a few of the books she had been studying and moves quickly through the silent hallways. Arriving at her room Shkye packs the few personal posesions she had kept their into her bag along with the books she had taken from the library. Taking a last look around the small room to ensure she hadn't forgotten anything she takes her cloak from the peg beside the door and leaves heading out of the accademy and dissapearing into the darkness of the night.

Jasper has been staring at the books for a while <Sense Power - can't remember where I was with essense - If I am too low I'll come back and do it the next morning>.

Eventually he moves on, and seeing Shkye deep in a book, he doesn't disturb her, although there is a moment where his thoughts and feelings overwhelm him with pain and he pauses on the way out.

He then gathers himself together and heads to his room, looking over his research and trying to think of ways detect any effects the rift is causing. Eventually, he retires for the night.

In the morning, Jasper returns to the library <checking the books with sense power if I was out of essence previously>.
