She closes her eyes and speaks softly. "For. The. Best. No. Isabella." Soon she drifts off to sleep and is calm for a bit until she starts to stir and make some noises. She would again be warm to the touch and sweating. This goes on for a full hour straight, until she sits up, screaming very loudly. "F***ing Costa, F***ing Stahl, They will never stop until either I am dead or they are!"
Otto looks at her sleeping and thinks. She is calm for a bit and then she wakes up screaming. He notices this and holds her close. “ Rosa, calm down! I have to tell you that Costa is dead. Isabella killed him when there was a raid on the palace by her Princess Karolina and the Jaegers. They rescued me and Eleanora but you were already on your way to Hondura.”
"I'm sorry, every night it is the same thing. I'm running away from Costa in the hallway and then just as I get away from him I am grabbed by Stahl, then it cuts to the camp and the interrogation room. It is terrible and it is happening every time I try to sleep!"
"Yes, get the doctor. I need something, anything for it, please! I want to go to sleep but the dreams, we have to ask him about that as well. I really want to leave here and get to the cabin."
Otto yells for a servant to get the doctor, quickly! We will ask him about the dreams and hw will give you something for it. We will leave here soon to go to the cabin. We will have 2 guards and 2 servants at the cabin, as well as a doctor. We will be fine.
Rosa puts her head in her hands, letting out a sob. "I feel so hopeless, I will never return to normal. It is all Eleanora's fault and I should have let her die! At least Isabella actually tried to save me, Eleanora should have stood her ground. It would be better if Eleanora was removed from power entirely."
"I don't see why we couldn't go out into Stahlgrad, sure!"
Otto thinks for a second and then he holds Rosa close. "Don't feel hopeless Rosa. You might never return to normal but I will still love you no matter what state you are in.Isabella did try to save you and she did save me and Eleanora. The Empress actually did a lot to try to save you as well. She sent the Jaeger corps and Princess Karolina to the raid.Princess Karolina actually got injured during the raid. They did kill Costa though. I agree Eleanora may have give up too much to rescue you but she was doing it because she loves you and wanted to get you out of Hondura. So you blame Eleanora for all this?
At this point the doctor arrives.
"Maybe it was, maybe not, I don't know, I just... Can't think straight. Everything is just completely f***ed!" She is cut off by the doctor entering the room.
The doctor enters the room. Please help us doctor, she is having nightmares every time she tries to sleep! Is there anything that you can give her for this?"
"It is truly terrible doctor, I'm exhausted but sleep is not possible. I'm feeling really nervous and boxed in, I need something, anything. I'm dying of thirst, someone get me some water please." She looks at the window and then at the door before attempting to run off. Otto is much stronger then her and would be able to hold her. "I. Need. To. Get. Away. From. Here. Now."
The doctor thinks for a second. After he sees Rosa trying to run away he speaks."I can give you something to calm you down and something to help keep the nightmares away. " Otto is holding Rosa tight so she does not try to run away. Thank you doctor. That would be helpful. He then looks at Rosa, who is struggling in his arms. "We will leave for the cabin at once. He gives her some water. He tells a servant to prepare the transport to the cabin.
She relaxes and nods at Otto. "Thank you, I think that I will feel better at the cabin Otto. Can we just slip out without saying goodbye to Isabella or Eleanora? Please!" He could probably see the nervousness in her eyes.
He sees the nervousness in her eyes, he sees how she relaxed she is now. "You will feel better at the cabin. We can try to slip out without saying goodbye to them. The servant comes back and says that the transport is ready for them to go. Otto and Rosa gather their things and head to the transport.
Rosa who is completely exhausted and still very weak has to lean up against Otto for support. They would walk past Eleanora's room and hear cursing and screaming inside. Seconds later the door flies open and Eleanora runs out and pushes past Rosa, knocking her to the ground. Rosa immediately hits the floor, crying and in pain. "What the he11 Princess Eleanora?" Isabella runs into the hallway after Eleanora but stops to help Rosa get up. "I'm so sorry Rosa, your sister has completely lost it!" Rosa cannot hold herself up from exhaustion so Isabella has to carry her to the transport. "This is for the best, Rosa should not be made to stay here, keep her safe please Otto."
(More on the fight coming soon.)
Otto is holding Rosa up as they head outside to the transport. As they pass Eleanora's room they hear screaming and yelling. The door then opens and she runs out, pushing Rosa to the ground. Rosa hits the floor hard. She starts crying and screams at Eleanora. Isabella then runs after Eleanora but stops to help Otto get Rosa up. Isabella carries Rosa to the transport. "This is for the best. She needs to be at the cabin and not here. Especially with Eleanora here. What was that all about Isabella? Is Eleanora finally snapping and going crazy? I will keep Rosa safe. If anyone tries to get her I will defend her with my life. If she has another episode then I will help her, even if she hurts me."
"Thank you Otto, I'm so glad that you would defend her with your life. If she does have another episode be extra gentle with her okay. As for Eleanora, I don't know what is going on. She started yelling and hit me but she ran off. She has said she would rather join the rebels in the south then allow me to rule. She is probably half way to the airport by now!"
”I will be extra gentle with her if she has another episode. We have the doctor with us if anything bad should happen. I guess Eleanora will get involved with the rebels and oppose you. Im sure that you and Birgit will deal with the rebels and Eleanora appropriately.”
"I just don't know anymore Otto. Hopefully she didn't mean that and she just needs her space." Isabella places Rosa in the transport and closes the door, looking at Otto. "Keep her safe Otto, please!" Isabella gets a call on the radio. "The airport is secure, she won't get out that way. We have patrols out looking for her, she won't get far."
