from The Burning Book
by Cora Collen
“I’m sorry sir, but I don’t know anyone by that name. I cannot help you,” she said firmly. The stranger picked up his hat, gave a short, curt nod, and turned to go. He was surprised to see Rose, who still stood beside the door. His eyes examined her with a quick, keen glance. A subtle flash of understanding stole into his eyes.
“It’s too bad that you do not know where I can find Miss McFairlogh,” he said to Milly as he looked steadily at Rose. “I have priceless literature I would trust to no other hands…” he paused, letting it sink in, “but there - perhaps I will just burn it,” he said casually.
He watched the face of the woman at the door turn perceptibly paler. Her eyes showed what he interpreted to be a mixture of fright and mortification. Satisfied, he turned from her and reached for the door.
Then, almost as an afterthought, he paused and said, “I would suggest for your own safety Miss McFairlogh, that in the future, you try to find more subtle places to hide books than under your cloak.” The face of the woman at the door was undoubtedly frightened now. “Good day, Miss McFairlogh,” he said with his most congenial smile. And with that he left.
