The book of potions
---- Dalen Archives, midday, 2 years later, day 1 ----
Gareth found his way through the city and finally arrived at his destination; The Dalen Archives. It was a huge old building located in the center of the city. He hesitated. Thia had asked him to bring her one of the books from the restricted section. This was not going to be an easy task, but if he succeeded she had promised to buy him a special treat; five pounds of fresh calflivers. The mere thought of this made his mouth watering. But right now he had to stay focused.
After he had made sure his clothes and hair was sitting correctly he took a pair of glasses and put on. Hopefully he would be able to pass as a student or something so that nobody would suspect him of being a mere thief. Trying to act causualy he walked up to the front door and went inside. He had never seen anything like this before and paused for a brief moment to look around. There were so many shelves and countless of books as far as the eye could see. He tried to act natural, though it was hard for him to hide his surprise of the sheer amount of books and knowledge collected at one place.
He began his search for the restricted section. It took quite a while to find it, but eventually he succeeded. Almost at the back of the room, concealed in the darkness between two of the tall shelves there were this small door with a lock on. He looked around to make sure nobody was watching before walking up to the door. As quietly as possible he grabbed the lock and thore it apart. It wasn't easy, even for one with the strength like him, but he managed to do so. Carefully he opened the door and entered the room. This room was significantly smaller, but was completly filled with books just like the other one. It was very dark because there were no windows, but that wasn't a problem to Gareth. Without any further hesitation he started searching for the potion book Thia wanted (A book called "Regenerative potions" by Galladoorn) eager to get this done as fast as possible.
