*Circa an hour before*
Anna felt a strange numbness inside of her chest. Why did she do that to Sebastian? His affection towards her wasn't anything bad, and even though she couldn't return the feeling, she could at least offer him something to look forward to. She could be his companion, let him think she cared.
The situation of theirs did that to her. Her social skills were bad before and the stress only induced it. She was snapping at her friends, acting like a jerk, even though they came to rescue her without the need to do so. Alex was the one that needed saving. He was the ambassador, one very important person that would negotiate the future of dragons and humans. Anna was just another person lurking in the darkness, surviving day by day. Her work might be important, but no one would recognize her for it. Humans would always steal the honours.
With Anna killing the governor, she would at least get recognized for something, even though it would earn her an electric chair at best.
