Ossomer is seated, not facing Ansom. Ansom is standing looking down at Ossomer. Both sport bruises on their faces, and Ansom has a black eye.|||
Ansom: What was your contingency plan, were we to breach your hex, or bypass it somehow?
Prince Ossomer: She is evil, brother.
You can see that.
Ansom crouches close to Ossomer, with a vexed expression on his face. Ossomer is still seated and faces forward, looking at Wanda and the Lady Sylvia Lazarus, who appear to be having a discussion a short distance away.
On a nearby hill in the background there are several Gobwin Knob units. Two archons, one seated, the other standing behind her, presumably survivors of the skirmish. A grounded blue dwagon wearing a saddle, on its back can be seen a patch of surgical tape, roughly in the area that Jack's dwagon was struck by an arrow. Lying on the ground is Jack Snipe, either unconscious or dead; he is being tended to by two units in maroon, gold, and gray raiment.
In the air a saddled pink dwagon glides above Wanda and Lady Sylvia Lazarus.
Further down the road, behind Wanda and Scarlet, appears to be a column of infantry.
Ansom: What was it?
You must have had one.
Prince Ossomer: You knew good from evil once.
Surely you have not forgotten all.
Visible over Ansom's right shoulder, Ossomer, arms bound behind him by ropes, looks up at his brother. Ansom has a cut on his cheek.|||
Ansom: Ossomer, if you turn, you can save many lives.
There is great good in that.
Prince Ossomer: Or you could save them all.
Closeup on Ansom, his right eye is beginning to swell. Smiling and raising an eyebrow, he speaks. A skull can be seen on his collar.|||
Sitting upright, Ossomer looks up and speaks to his brother, who meets his gaze. In the middle of the bridge, several of Ossomer's caped retinue pound their fists against the hex border in vain. Beyond the bridge the radish-tents of the camp and the walls and tower of Spacerock can be seen.|||
Head bowed slightly, Ossomer continues his debriefing.|||
