The City should have mourned, wept and wailed at the cruel death of one of its founders: The earth which held up the sky and bore the tinker's river. Or perhaps it should have rejoiced. Celebrated...

It didn't stop her. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fF5vazbvQLA)

The eye in the bell slowly cracks open, watching Meido, and after a cursory examination, a weary voice echoing out from the interior of the bell. Satori herself, no doubt.
