Les sat there trying to take in everything Grant was saying. While he paused in thought she too, turned inward and mused on the things he said. She still didn't believe that her not having a name was of such importance that it should bring her here to this secret society in a castle long forgotten. She was startled when Grant stood and started pacing. He seemed to have forgotten that she was there, and he had been speaking to her. Then he paused looked around, and then darted up a spiral stair in search of a specific book. Les wasn't sure what she was supposed to do. She remained where she was. Eventually her mind trailed back to think about what Grant had said again.
Grant, after having looked chaotically about for his book, finally found one and was reading it to himself. Then he laughed and slammed the book shut. He leaped over the railing again and lowered himself to the floor. "I've got it!" He proclaimed. Then strutted back over to his seat, smiling wide.

"Do you know what this means? Of course you don't. I haven't finished telling you why you're here. Forgive me." He cleared his throat. Clearly giddy with excitement at whatever his discovery was.
