Mormo says: You're very close. She's in the market town. One mile from the gap in the wall.

Lamia says: You speak as if this is good news. Do I have to remind you that Wall is not part of our universe? If she crosses that threshold into the human realm, our star becomes nothing more than a pitted lump of metallic rock!

Empusa says: Then I suggest you hurry up!

Lamia says: Where are the Babylon candles?

Mormo says: You used the last one, Lamia, 200 years ago. Do you not recall?

Empusa says: Perhaps we can obtain another?

Lamia says: Has your mind become as decrepit as your face, Empusa? You speak as if such things are freely available.

Empusa says: I know sister, I merely thought--

Lamia says: You'd have us hunting for a Babylon candle while some other witch finds our star. Fool! There's no time to waste. If we must retrieve it on foot, then we shall. Mormo, we need information.
