Of the two of them, Polly is the one who reads, oddly; Maladicta sprawls across a chair and picks at her fingernails with a knife, defiantly masculine. The room is fairly quiet, with the occasional rush of conversation occasionally from a corner of the room where they are knitting bandages and talking about romance novels. Polly sighs, turning a page - a happy sigh, and Maladict smiles a little, taking a long sip of her coffee and then starting with the knife on her other hand.
