“The fellows up at Green Soap says it ain’t like the irons say. I knows they says t’was a transillicent fish what et a fisherman so as ye could see the man’s body within it, but thar weren’t no man inside ‘o that one.

“Oh I saw Mrs. Fensley alright, least what was left over. She came bolting out of the woods behind Cark’s garden. She weren’t wearing no clothes and most of her skin had turned black. At first I thought it was mud covering her but as she got close I could see it was hair. ‘Fact the only way I knew it was Dame Fensley was the bonnet on her head. The rest of her looked like a bear. Yah, heard me right.Well I’ll tell you this sir, the woman what went missing near Little Falls came back something monstrous. Sheriff Old shot her square in the heart with his crossbow and she took fifteen paces to die. What’s more, I heard stories like this one all up and down the river, and even out to the stiches. Something in the water I say.”

“Yeah that’s right, I heard there’s tunnels running all around the city and out under the river. What fer’? What am I, a historian?

And when the mines were dug…well they weren’t the first mines in those hills…”
