Hallam found her in the washroom closest to the Black Hull entrance.

"We're going to be late."

Petra sat on the sink, eyes dry, shoulders squared. "I'm not going."

"If I go, it's as good as saying he's dead. As good as saying Mara's dead."

"Well," Hallam exhaled. "Aren't they?"

Petra ground her teeth. Then: "But I want people to believe."
