Innocent Soul Chapter 10Chapter Ten
It had only been a few minutes since Xia's battle with the killer. She had wondered what to make of her situation now that she was alone. The rock raft surface she was fighting on was giving signs of giving out. a segment finally separated, causing Xia to leap on the other part. Seeing she was safe for the moment, she took the time to examine her Grieve Edges.
"Oh no..." she said. "They're ruined. and i went to so much trouble to make them..." She looked out at the lava current. "And i don't know where this current wil take me. Nii-san, what was I thinking?"

with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,

what a clean sheet smells like."
