    got a mouth on her

    this.”
    “Um, how ’bout, no,” I replied, staring at the dark green contents. Whatever the liquid was, it smelled like pine trees and dirt, and seeing how this woman was Izzy’s mom, I figured it was poisoned.
    But Aislinn just shrugged. “Don’t, then. No skin off my nose if your head hurts.”
    “It’s okay,” Mom said, never taking her eyes off Aislinn. “It’ll make you feel better.”
    “By making me dead?” I asked. “I mean, I’m sure that would make my headache go away, but that’s a heck of a side effect.”
    “Sophie,” Mom murmured, a warning tone in her voice.
    But Aislinn just regarded me shrewdly, a tiny smile playing on her lips. “She’s got a mouth on her, that’s for sure,” she said. Her eyes flicked to Mom. “Must’ve gotten
    that from him. You were always quiet.”
