Zen tilted her head in acquiescence as Elizabet pouted, "No. That's off the table. We are not smashing Anguis." Ajjrana shifted slightly, catching Zen's eye. The woman shook her head slightly; Elizabet noticed it as well and spoke, "Ajjrana, perhaps you have an idea you'd like to share? You seem to disagree with Zen's theory." “A human is b-b-built with a tenthhh part of b-b-blood. Magi-cal liquid d-d-designed to carry life ac-cross the body. The c-crystal is most d-d-definitely the equ-equivalent of a heart. I c-c-can’t see any other ex-planation. You’re more likely to know thththan me, affffter all, this is sssssupposed to be your fffffield of ex-pertise. What insssight do you ex-expect ffffrom me?” Ajjrana replied, her voice heavy with sarcasm. "Well, we seem to have different cultural backgrounds, so I thought perhaps you would have a different idea. I'll do some in-depth research tonight." Elizabet responded coolly. Killian moved, tapping his sister's shoulder before twisting his hands at Elizabet. Zen narrowed her eye a bit, trying to understand what the boy was trying to say. "Elizabet, can you get those pink shards of crystal out? From the snakes? Then we can connect them to Killian's and don't have to wait around for Rose to translate." Zen suggested, leaning forward abruptly.
