He looked through to see if anything was particularly valuable for their library. Vague everyday references were unnecessary. He wanted practical information and useful research and reference tools. The big book of myths and scary monsters was probably too vague. Though if it was popup....

It wasn't a pop-up. But it was, at least, interesting. And well-written.

He took it, might be interesting. And he picked up the couple of others he had found in the other group.

Still, no one seemed to notice him.

Good. He would continue to go through the books, picking out things that seemed decent. He wondered if they had an area of books taken off the shelves, because of disrepair, age or lack of interest.

They did, but it was allllll the way in the very back, behind a locked, dusty door.

Locked doors were nothing to him, really. Once he figured out where they were.. He did have skills.

It didn't seem like much, just a simple, locked door.

He had some security skills. He used hwat he did know to see if he could unlock the door.

It was a rather simple lock. He didn't have any trouble getting into the office. Or, at least, unlocking the door.

He unlocked the door and looked around to make sure it was okay, and then slowly and quietly opened the door, looking to see if there was anyone inside.

There was no one inside the office. He was quite alone in the dusty corner office.

And so he closed the door softly and started to go through it, looking for books that had been taken off the shelves for one reason or another.

Most of the books he found were damaged in some way. Missing pages, torn, ink spilled on -- and even a few that looked like they had been partially burned.

Interesting. Still he went through the books to find any that looked to be of the right sort or anything that might be useful. A partial of a good book was better than nothing. Plus it could act as a placeholder for a replacement.

There were several books of interest back in this office. Mostly, the burned ones seemed to be some sort of instructional manuals on magic. Magic that he recognized.

Blood magic.

Well, those were going with him. It also made him wonder who was burning these books. There had been a tremere librarian, hadnt there. He looked around and found a box to put the books into.

Sadly, there were no boxes to be found. Not in this room.

Then he would have to find something, even a plastic bag or a cloth one. If not that, he would have to leave and get one. He wanted some of these books.

There didn't seem to be any bags in the office where he stood.

But he did hear voices outside the door. Right outside the door.

Damn it. He disappeared, using his obfuscate and moved to a corner where he would not be in the way, Then he opened up his senses so he could hear what the people were saying and doing.

A young woman stepped into the room. Followed, quite closely, by a man. Not a word was spoken.

He stayed in place, quiet as possible, invisible and listened and watched.

As he watched, hidden, the woman began to gather up the books. As many of them as she could hold -- and started to pack them into a crate.

Her eyes were glazed, as though she were maybe high or drunk in some way, her movements jerky and sharp.

Oh, now this was interesting. He continued to watch and then decided on a whim to scan the two, looking to see if he could see anything.
