"The door was locked, and Alexia, ressourceful as she was, had not yet learned to pick locks, though she mentally added it to her list of usefull skills she needed to acquire, along with hand-to-hand combat and the recipe for pesto. If her life were to continue on its present track, wich, after twenty-six years of obscurity now seemed to mainly involve people trying to kill her, it would appear that acquiring a less savory skill set might be necessary. Although, she supposed, pesto-making ought to be termed more savory."
