Allevard and Xuan,
You make your way quickly through the ship and enter the Observation Bay with its vista of stars just as the Duchess' party, Kali in the lead, comes into the compartment from the opposite passage. Yellow pulsing lights play over everything.
Kali scowls, putting a hand to her sidearm, the rest of her detail moves to imitate her.
Xuan, you spot Rieva standing third back, hand on her weapon, like the others. She hasn't recognized you, though she is looking. What is the first difference you notice, from when you saw her last?"Give me the command codes for your shuttle, Captain. I am getting Her Grace off this ship!"
