Sealing up the Catacombs lead to an entirely new venture; Establishing freedom. How could any one better themselves, without filling their minds with better things? Upon this core statement- the bettering of minds can only come from better understanding of things- was Haste able to convince the good Catholic Priests to fund a library. An additional wing constructed- This new site would be a charming hovel for day reading and quiet pleasures. * * And don't worry. If you cannot read, little Alice, feel free to ask any doctor to read to you.

"... Icarus was the young son of Daedalus and Nafsicrate, one of King Minos’ servants. Daedalus was incredibly smart and so, he began thinking of ways he and his son could escape the Labrynth." Small Evangeline spun the book around, revealing a beautiful set of hand-painted pictures depicting the mythological pair. Although the facility encouraged reading, it was considered blasphemous to indulge in any sort of written word that went against the word of the Christian God, and most books had been hidden away - but little Evangeline was a smart thing, and had snuck her way into the good doctors office while he was giving a tour of the asylum. She'd selected her favorite storybook from his many shelves and returned to the library, where she had been holding a 'storytime' session once a week, for the younger girls who couldn't yet read. "Daedalus managed to create gigantic wings, using branches of osier and connected them with candle wax. He taught his son Icarus how to fly, but told him to keep away from the sun because the heat would make the wax melt. Together, they escaped the Labyrinth and flew to the sky, free!" She turns the page of the book, showing another image of the two, naked (as was the art style back then) with glorious, almost angelic wings sprouting from their backs. "Unfortunately, Icarus was too young and too enthusiastic about flying. He got excited by the thrill of it all and found himself carried away by the amazing feeling of freedom. He began flying high," She lifts a hand high above her head, "And then low, and high again, over and over." Eva's hand follows the motion in a sort of 'wave' pattern.
