In Which Mr. Pimms Decides to Stage a Rescue...
(Part III of Mrs. Pimms Finds a Fairy)
In affable credit to Mr. Pimms, the true nature of Mrs. Pimms' room did not phase him. Rather, he decided to take it as a helpful hint that all was not right for Mrs. Pimms.
The question was: how was it not right?
Bracing himself ever so slightly, Mr. Pimms began to go over Mrs. Pimms' room, looking for clues. Several volumes with titles referencing immortals, fairies, and the Fae were stacked neatly on her tidy worktable. As there were no other books off the shelf, they seemed a good place to start, and when he picked up the first, he saw that there were pages marked. This did not surprise Mr. Pimms; in fact he found it re-assuring that his tidy, orderly wife was much the same in her capacity as a—he couldn’t bring himself to say ‘witch’—as she was as his wife.
As he went through all the marked sections in the books, he started to get a very clear picture of what his wife was up to: she had gone looking for fairies.
