“Do you know why she was there?” Evelyn asked.
“At the time?” Clara replied. “No. However, I suspect there was a gateway to the Terminus there.”
“You did something that night,” Evelyn said.
“I stabbed Drusilla,” Clara said. “She was none too pleased about that.”
“I suspect not,” Evelyn said. “That stunt of yours set back her plans by a quarter of a century.”
That statement tied in with what Clara already knew. Drusilla had been busy consolidating power in the background, hell-bent on subjugating all inferior creatures. She had seen that woman’s attempt to domesticate ghouls, something that was still going on. She also witnessed what happened when her attacks finally hit the mark and isolated The Tower from the world.
“How does that…” Clara said before her eyes went wide. “Beware a woman scorned.”
