The woman behind the counter didn't seem in the least interested in him. She had textbooks that she was busy stamping and filing.

So he started going through the library, looking for books that were not on the shelves. He was also looking for something hidden. Fortunately.. seeing more was what he was good at.

There were a few back here that hadn't been shelved yet. Mostly due to age and eccentricity, they were stacked in a pile toward the back. These were all about vampires and werewolves, the two things tied so closely together by the moon and myth.

Well now these were interesting. He picked up a few, looking through them, looking for anything that rang true. In fact, he was very interested in the stack.

Several books had passages in them that rang true. At least eight of them did.

He set those aside, putting them in bags and then continued to look for other books. Possibly there would be similar stacks.

Faintly, he could hear the sound of two voices coming toward him.

He set everything to the side and found a place to disappear. Best they not see him.

The voices got louder as they came closer to him -- and just as quickly started to fade as the two men seemed to pass right by where he was hiding, still deep in conversation.

He watched as they came and went, listening to see what they were talking about, curious why two would be walking around back here this late. He would even follow them a little till he knew where they were going, just to see.

They were discussing the inventory. There was, apparently, a section of books back there that would, after a bit of computer work, be ready to go onto the shelves.

Interesting. He went back the way they came to check those books that were not in the inventory yet. This could be what he was looking for.

There were several books, all of them packaged in neat rows inside boxes. Eighteen piles of these boxes were seen -- so he would have to pick which ones he looked through.

He looked at the first pile to see what they were. Hopefully they would be roughly by subject.

They were arranged by genre. The first pile he checked happened to be fiction.

He ran a hand over the titles to make sure nothing slipped in but then started looking for the history or occult section.

Which was a little harder back here. There didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the stacks. They were organized by genre, of course, but he was finding quite a few books on cooking and even more on gardening than he was history or occult.

They were the new books to put on the shelves. He expected as much. But he wanted to check before he gave up. That was the thing to do. Plus you never knew but bit of buried treasure you would find.

There were science books back there, too. Chemistry, Biology, Anatomy. As well, there were medical texts and encyclopedias to be put on the shelves. Quite a bit for him to choose from.

And yet none of it was what he was looking for for the library. He was looking for books on magic. Oh well.

There didn't seem to be any books on magic back here. It was nearly all mundane books.

Then maybe history of something useful, or about monsters.

Several of those, however. Though they were classified as mythology and legends and tales of fantasy.

Those were of interest. he pulled them out and checked them to see if there was anything useful, anything that made them worth having.

Most of them had references to old myths and legends -- monsters that, now that he was Kindred, Estaban knew to be at least loosely based in fact.
