By the time dawn breaks, the Splendor Hyaline is well away from Calormene shores. Though she knows that the more time passes following the sun's rising, the more likely it is someone will come to look for her, but Susan doesn't want to deal with feeling the eyes of the crew on her, with sensing the tension she knows will be in the air from the concern that they'll be followed, and so she remains holed up in her cabin. There's a nook she can sit comfortably in that allows her to stretch her legs and lean her face against her window, and anyone who enters would be able to tell from the stillness of her posture and the untouched nature of her bedcovers that she hasn't slept a wink.

Somewhere in the back of her mind, she knows she should go out and face the day. But she can't quite bring herself to move from where she has been contemplating all that's happened and all that may come to pass.

She'll not notice, at first, when Edmund knocks.

No matter. He'll just knock again before turning the doorknob and letting himself in. He'll do it a little more loudly than usual, just to make sure that she can hear him come in.

"Susan." He doesn't say anything else - just approaches her to sit near her feet.

"Want to talk?" he asks, leaning his head back again the window. "Or we can not talk."

"Nah," he says, giving her a crooked smile. "Try again."

"I respectfully decline, your Majesty," he retorts with a little scoff. "You think Narnia wouldn't be at risk with a man like Rabadash sitting on the throne next to us?"

"How is it your fault that's he's the rudest, most arrogant man ever to be born?" Ed demands, nudging her knees. "Don't be stupid, Su."

"No, I'm just sensible. You're not helping anyone or anything by blaming yourself. If I'm being totally honest, you're worsening things by being so self-deprecating. Now, of all times, Narnia needs four Kings and Queens, Su."

"When you started to think such ridiculous things, of course," he retorts with a smile, holding her fingers tight. "Don't worry - I expect you'll grow out of it eventually.

"That's okay," he says, shrugging a shoulder. "We don't always like who we should. I should know better than anyone, yeah?"

"You know, at least you got away from him. I was stuck with Jadis even when I finally figured out I wasn't the biggest fan of her. It'll be easier for you than it was for me." He can talk about it. It's fine. Really.
