Working in the yard is a burly individual wearing an elaborate apron which was once probably white. He has his back to you, so has not noticed how you arrived. You cough politely and he turns, surprised. When you announce yourself he explains that he is the cook, and his master, Derdolcelme, has a private visitor in his parlour, but you would be welcome to await him in the library.
He leads you to the library and promises to return with some refreshment.
Do you sit decorously and await his return?
Do you immediately start to search the library, in case anything of interest has been inadvertently left on display?
