If you and Kilorn want to be transported away from here, it'll cost 2000 crowns.
2000 crowns?! Where will I find that much money?
Mare (on the left) and Kilorn (on the right) cheer for the opposing silvers in an arena battle. Mare, like everyone else, cheers only to get electricity and rations. Kilorn, however, cheers because he wants to see silver blood.
When Kilorn's master dies and he is at risk of conscription, Mare tries to find a way for them to escape. Farely, one of the people who works with Mare's friend, offers her an escape. However, she would need to pay an incredibly high price.
In an attempt to raise enough money for Kilorn and her to escape, Mare sneaks into Silver territory, with the help of her sister Gisa. Gisa fails at stealing from a soldier and is caught by guards, and Mare watches helplessly as she is punished for her crimes, the guards breaking her sewing arm.
