“I’ve noticed the Fair Folk often say ‘perhaps’ when there is a truth they want to hide,” Clary said. “It keeps you from having to give a straight answer.”
“Perhaps so,” said the Queen with an amused smile.
“‘Mayhap’ is a good word too,” Alec suggested.
“Also ‘perchance,'” Izzy said.
“I see nothing wrong with ‘maybe’,” said Simon. “A little modern, but the gist of the idea comes across.”
