Schenna’s ropes were cut loose once she’d been taken to an interrogation room. After Karyu sent out the guards he initiated the interrogation of Schenna.

“If you give those two from Gafenna some of this poison I’ll put in a good word, get you your position among Hashel’s knights back, how about it.”

“I refuse! Those two are important to me. In the first place, I don’t wanna go back to being a knight of Hashel. What’s more, those two are guaranteed by Reesha, between the two of you, you’ve no right to judge them!”

Rather than a proper investigation, Karyu tried offering Schenna a Devil’s bargain. Whether Karyu suspected the Gafennan’s of seeking retribution against Rinsr or out of his own personal sense of justice, Schenna didn’t know, so she held her complaints.

“If that’s all you wanted to talk about I’m going home.”

“You sure? If you refuse this I’ll have you extradited to Hashel with the charge of disturbing the town’s peace. If you’re convicted, everyone outside the country will know you were mingling with that Gafennan bunch and the whole Urablatt family will be responsible by proxy.”

Seeing as Karyu was in charge of the town’s public order, Schenna took his threat seriously. Seeing Karyu trying to force his way on her made Schenna’s rage well up from the bottom of her heart. She felt resentment that such a guy was asked to join the Hero’s party.

To protect Kishana and Luthors, to protect the Urablatt family name, Schenna decided on the option that was most likely to succeed.

“If you accept, I can secure your future, if you want you can even stay as one of my subordinates.”

“I won’t sell out my friends, and I won’t trouble my parents with my own problems.”

“Are you an idiot? As if there’s such an option! Just agree to what I’m offering here.”

“There is a way. I’ve no intention of giving in to a piece of ⓢⓗⓘⓣ like you! Don’t you think you’re underestimating me?”

Without hesitation, Schenna popped the poison Karyu had shown her into her mouth. Summarily, she began to feel numb, her stomach started turning, and finally, she felt chills. Karyu seemed to be saying something but his words didn’t reach Schenna who was at her limit just staying conscious.

Having collapsed on the spot, Schenna took pride in her decision as she closed her eyes and lost consciousness.

        1. and you don’t think Karyu have an antidote with him? If she did force the poison on him, he’d have a reason to accuse of her something she did not do, and the poisoning incident would make it more believable, so nobody would believe her then. Letting your anger take over and do rash thing is not the right way to resolve such matter… it’ll only make it worse.

    1. I think you misunderstood. She already pretty much was a hostage – she took the poison in the hopes that it would kill her so she wouldn’t give her family trouble or put her friends at risk, all the while denying Karyu anything that could actually incriminate her. In fact, if someone comes in and finds Schenna poisoned, he’s going to be the one (rightfully) incriminated.
