VICTORIA HAMMERLOCK: Oh, you're back Corvo? How's the new job?
CORVO ATREUS: I don't know how much longer I can keep this up. I wasn't made for hard labor, let alone working in a forge.
HAMMERLOCK: I'll figure something out in the meantime. Your access to lead though is saving our butt in more ways than you realize.
ATREUS: I know, I know. But that doesn't exactly alleviate the pain from these burns on my hands.
HAMMERLOCK: I know just what'll help with that.
ATREUS: As do I, pass me that bottle.
HAMMERLOCK: No, I need you sober for this. It'll just be a moment.
ATREUS: Ugh, just make it quick.

HAMMERLOCK: There, that should ease the pain a fair bit.
ATREUS: Yeah, I can definitely feel it working. Maybe I should take this to the other forgeworkers, might be a good way to make some friends to lend us a hand.
HAMMERLOCK: Oh? What are you thinking?
ATREUS: Just an idea. I'll have to look around at work.
