panel 1: a shot of two ring boxes. on the left, a box with a red interior, holding a ring with a single square cut diamond. on the right, a box with a black interior, holding a ring with a large, green, oval gem.
panel 2: chaar stares down at the rings. she remembers things people said to her previously. from saturnina: "sometimes you need to put aside your own selfish thoughts for the good of the family." from eithne: "it's up to you to decide which consequences you can bear." from rhean: "the crown has a way of silencing people who don't fall in line." from the maighstir: "it's those who stay in line that get ahead." from elias: "a broken system cannot be mended from the inside."
panel 3: remembering the words, chaar squeezes her eyes shut.
panel 4: chaar covers her face. patty the pangolin looks at her. chaar: (sob) "I don't know what to d-do!"
panel 5: she uncovers her face, tears in her eyes, looking frantically from side to side. chaar: "is it selfish to throw aside everything my mother did for me? o-or is it selfish to want to please my mother?!" chaar grasps her hands together. chaar: "a-and even if I wanted to fix things, I- I'm just me!"
panel 5: patty looks towards chaar. chaar (off-screen): "what can I do? I c-can't even send a m-message without messing it up-"
