The blacksmith shaped the necklace with the tears of the goddess that he’d accumulated as soon as they’d fallen to earth, correct? ” “Right…” Sebastian obtained up from his stool and commenced pacing backward and forward, his pleasure emerging. “So, only for the sake of argument, let’s say that the blacksmith truly did acquire anything that fell to earth and used it to make the torc.
