Azura Loring: smiles as sweetly as possible and shrugs
Edward Hyde: Kasa told most everyone at the hospital she had to chase down a little runt carrying bottles like these.
Azura Loring: Mason jars, very common tings
Edward Hyde: Mason jars filled with deadly cobewbs?
Azura Loring: Dey were gonna do bad tings with ’em.
Edward Hyde: … Really?
Azura Loring: nods

Azura Loring: Beryl knows lots, aye.
Azura Loring: Da las’ time da angels got mad they ended an empire. They can do it again.
