Kudos to the readers who saw exactly this coming…
Juniper (narrating): Marula was the kind of person who would train without mentally blunting her blade, and only tell you later that it had been sharp.
She seemed to enjoy it when her interests bothered people.
Violet (flashback): What are you doing?
Violet: We make food on that counter!
Juniper (narrating): Wasn’t sad or concerned if someone got hurt. Didn’t pretend to be, either.
Thorn: Birch — I don’t think we can save your leg —
Marula: I got it!!
Juniper (narrating): She didn’t hurt anyone herself — but I sure don’t think it was her conscience that held her back.
Rowan: What did you do with Birch’s leg?!
Marula: He’s not using it anymore, so why do you care?
