Ingrid felt her stomach knot up as the Pecari captain came into her room. Normally Joella paying a visit would have been a happy occasion, especially as she was all on her own, but it didn’t seem from Joella’s expression, or her first words, like she was here for anything good, although Ingrid couldn’t imagine what in the world she had to tell her that would be bad news.

Her jaw, however, was practically on the floor by the time Joella finished speaking.

“I… I wasn’t really expecting it,” she managed to say. “I mean, I’m really flattered that you’d consider me, so please don’t apologise - it’s more of a compliment that you were thinking about it than a disappointment that you didn’t.
