Mira almost started crying, “I didn’t know anything like this would happen! I thought it would be fine since my world here is magical, too! The place was so wonderful I wanted to take a little piece of it with me home… Also, I already took it last time we visited the library together and that is long ago! Maybe there isn’t even a connection…”
Stella could see that Mira felt miserable. Especially since now she knew a person had disappeared and might be lost somewhere… Could this book really be the reason?
She hugged Mira and tried to make her feel better, even though it was not right what the girl had done. Yet, Stella knew that she hadn’t expected anything bad to happen and was suffering enough at the moment knowing that something was damaged. “It will be alright (I hope). Show me where the place is mentioned in the book, please. We will find a way to save Clemens and fix the portal.”
Oh how much she wished to talk to Clemens right now! He would surely know what to do!
