Story description[edit | edit source]
She's developed a rattle in her lungs. Each time she coughs, the skin of her throat lights with an emberish glow. This latest coughing fit brings her to her knees.
Interactions[edit | edit source]
|Insist she takes to her bed to recover
She can't be up and about. Have meals sent to her cabin until she's a little restored.
She isn't pleased; but she isn't stupid either. “Very well. Until I judge that I'm well enough to rise from my sick-bed. Let us both be honest: I am much better equipped than you to determine when I am well enough.”
|Let her go
There's nothing more you can do for her.
||The light goes out
