Yes,舡 I said, locking the office door. 舠But I舗m just leaving. 舡 The footsteps stopped a few feet away from me. 舠Please, Mr. Dresden. I舗ve got to talk to you. 舡 I sighed, without looking at her. She舗d said the exact words she needed to in order to kick off my protective streak. But I could still walk away. Lots of people got to thinking that magic could dig them out of their troubles, once they realized they couldn舗t escape. 舠I舗ll be glad to, Ma舗am. 舡 I locked the door and started to turn away.

But the infant girl still hadn舗t inhaled, and her lips were turning blue. 舠Listen to me, Agatha,舡 I said, forcing more of my will into my voice, lacing it with magic so that the ghost could hear me.

She must have gotten them when she was . . what? Ten years old? Younger? I shuddered and secured the little braid of musty cloth and silver chain about her wrist, willing enough energy into it to close the circle once the knot was tied.
