When last we left them, Clyota and the Pressman had gone to the Library to find a secure ‘Net connection for some research into the contents of the lockbox and Clyota was worried about running into her least favorite co-worker.

Naturally,  they not only run into her, but into a certain bad guy—one John Anderson-Smith—who does his best to spoil our heroes’ field trip.

Luckily, Clyota has sympathetic back up.

“She’s not a Librarian,” said Diane, shooting me with a look of triumph, “and now she won’t even be a Patron any more.”

“Belay that, Diane,” said a voice. I turned to see Patricia, her stance loose and her expression calm.  “I overheard this gentleman,” she indicated Anderson-Smith, “threatening to remove this Patron’s property by force.  I find him guilty of attempted theft and intimidation on Library grounds, and I am pulling his Privileges.

“Clayton,” she said, tapping her call button, “I have a Revoked for the Cooler.”

    • By this point, I’m pretty sure Clyota and Reynard wanted it to be a death sentence, Lisa. They were kind of tired of Anderson-Smith popping up all over the place . . . And so was I. 🙂

    • I’m glad you think so. This story kind of grew out of wondering what kind of society would support a library system like this, and how would that society have grown from ours. I’m not sure I nailed it, but that’s what editing is for . . . right?
