Amelia corrals Bertram Gulley — he’s Mr. Gulley’s cousin, once removed, and a wizard at archaeology — and she complains to him. She puffs out her cheeks, then exhales. “Look at this!”

She shakes her belly at him.

He gives her a remarkable look.

“Do you realize what this means?” she says. “I shall have to stop drinking mercury.”

“Amelia,” Bertram says. “You shouldn’t be drinking mercury anyway.”

“Because I’m pregnant,” she explains.

“No,” he says, frustrated.

“It’s OK,” she says. She pats him on the head. “You’re a wizard at archaeology!”

He has a crush on her which shall never be requited.
