a cage went in search of a bird

Xani finds out through the newspaper. You wouldn't expect her to be the sort of person who keeps up with the news, really; the courtesan isn't exactly secretive about her complete lack of interest in politics, new houses, and business. But it's also where the murders of young prostitutes are occasionally mentioned, and news of this, she seeks out avidly.
She had never once thought to find
in the paper instead, her death having made headlines after the opera Xani hadn't bothered to attend.
It takes her a few days to track the girl down, afterwards. She'd been digging up information here and there on Elliot Nightray, of course, but there's more than one about the place, and narrowing down
one was likely be the one of Leah's interest is a bit of a feat when Leah herself is so dismally scarce. At last, though, she figures out which door is her target. The courtesan gets into the room easily -- doors don't stop Breaks -- and with her, she has a box of warm cinnamon rolls, fetched from the bakery they'd gone to together right before she broke in.
Xani met a Liam who had died in this place, once, and it had left him shaken. She has little doubt the girl, far more timid and uncertain in the first place, will likely be a far greater mess than he. Leah may not even be up for cinnamon rolls at all, if it's really bad. But dammit, Xani brings them anyway. Goodness knows Leah could use a bit more meat on her bones even when she
just back from the dead.
The smell of them fills the room as the courtesan enters, shutting the door quietly behind her.
