"Yeah."

I sat back in my chair, unsure of what to do now. I hadn't gotten to telling her my whole story, but I was pretty okay with that. It wasn't something I enjoyed talking about.

"Regroup with my team, then figure out whether we're continuing with the mission or turning back. If the others report a lot of danger in the area, we'll just return to headquarters."

"Not sure," I said. "Depends on how long it takes for all of us, not just Sarah and me, to build our strength back up and jump to a safe plane."

"Based on Sarah's condition," I started, "probably a handful of hours."

Njalla opened her mouth to talk just as a hand-cranked siren wailed in the city below. Another one joined it, then another, until the air was ringing with the mournful cries of the sirens and the shouting of the Norlan military.
"...shit," said Njalla. "That isn't good."

"What's happening?" I asked. Sarah came back into the room, rubbing her eyes.

"What's...?" she started.

Njalla peered out of the window, then ducked as a nearby building exploded. "I can't tell from here." As she spoke, a deep red envelope dropped out of the clouds with a sleek, tough-looking gondola underneath. Hundreds of red and gold streamers flew from its ratlines.
"Ah," said Njalla. "The Kob Cho."

"Who are they, and exactly how much of a threat do they pose?"

By the sirens and the sound of an explosion, I'd have guessed it was a good amount.

"One of the Three Empires. The Kob Cho come from the Kobatji Empire to the south-west of us. They tend to focus the resources on the Azwangan Empire, so I'm surprised to see them here." Njalla frowned. "It doesn;t make any sense at all, unless they're here for you."

"I can't think of any reason they'd be here for us," I said. "It's not even like we've been here very long."

"You're right," said Njalla. "We put this deception together in only a few hours, so unless they've been watching us like raptors for who knows how long, it might just be a huge coincidence."

"Is there any safer place we can get to?" I asked. "I didn't like the sound of that explosion."

Not to mention I was starting to have flashbacks...

"You'll have to find your own way. I have to stay here and hide. If I'm implicated in your escapes, I'll be killed before I can complete my final mission. Good luck."
So saying, Njalla crawled back under the bed.

Njalla's voice was muffled by the bed-clothes. "I can't tell you for sure. Most of Volunsvand is fairly indifferent to the Order's cause, and if you wear those cloaks then our women won't recognise you as the prisoners. You have two options, as I see it: make your way to the south gate and escape into the mountains or get to the docking spike in the citadel and board a fleeing ship. The first option is safer at first, but leaves you out in the Volunsgattir Mountains with winter approaching. The second option requires you to get to the docking spire and not get shot down once you've left, but after that it means you're on a ship, which is relatively safe."

"I just meant a place we could go until the explosions stopped," I said. "Or is that what you mean?"

"Things will be exploding for a while yet, unless they have a particular target. It's probably safer to flee."
