English term or phrase: they were so old
Another vamp had started breaking apart the two withered corpses.They were so old that their bone snapped easily, brittle like dried sticks. They made a crunching sound as he shved them into a garbage bag. I watched them, the shiny gloss of the suggestion dulling my reaction. I knew they have been killed b a spell meant for me,

Mi propuesta:
Eran tan viejos que sus huesos se rompían fácilmente y se quebraban como palos secos. Hicieron un sonido chirriante cuando los metió en una bolsa de basura. Los miré, el brillo reluciente de la sugerencia entorpeció mi reacción. Sabía que tenían que haber sido asesinados por un hechizo que era para mí
