Now what’s wrong?
Now what are you looking at?
Now what’s on your mind?
Now what’s happened?
Now what’s eating at you?

Brigid had been up all night watching over Erin as she slept. She slipped unconscious and into a fever after her duel with Bravo. The red forks around her wound began to retreat, and the swelling relented. Erin rested easier, and her breathing became less labored. Still, Brigid cursed herself for dozing in her chair. Finally, Erin stirred and opened her eyes. Brigid sighed in relief.
“Now, what’s happened? I guess I didn’t win the fight?” said Erin.
“Oh no, you won. I suppose you don’t remember the mess. You won, but he used a sullied, tainted blade. You nearly lost because he cheated but, he’s dead now. So don’t worry anymore about him.”
