a. bile or gall, is a dark-green-to-yellowish-brown fluid produced by the liver of most vertebrates that aids the digestion of lipids in the small intestine.

your liver is out to heal you, but as it heals, it hurts, growing pains in your throat, coating mouths with new wounds to care for.
b. a gallstone is a stone formed within the gallbladder out of bile components.

collecting stones made from rejected body parts, you model the perfect daughter out of amber. it shines, two yellow eyes in the dark.
