kingsroads: (sadly resigned)

Strange's emotions turn on a dime. The wild thrill of playing with his powers and actually using magic almost instantly vanishes, replaced by utter surprise as Strange spots his book. They had talked over the radios of course, but to see it in person, despite the fact that he honestly thought he'd never see it again? Strange has no idea how to feel about this. He's still having a hard time wrapping his head around the fact that Lambert asked for his book and is now actually giving it to him--honestly, he still expects Lambert to laugh and take it all back, keeping the book for himself.

With a wave of his hand, the rest of the fire vanishes as Strange walks over towards Lambert. It's obvious that he has NO IDEA what to think about the fact that here, in this carnival, he's got his book, one closer connection to Arabella. Because really, that's what matters the most. Not the text, or the book itself, but the illustrations. It's one more piece of Arabella that he knows he won't forget and he knows can't leave his already shoddy memory.

"Thank you," Strange simply responds, with perhaps the most honest sincerity that these two have ever had. "You really have no idea just how much this means to me."
