Penelope is determined to meet the last two love interests in the game to see if either of them can be her actual way out, rather than relying on the two brothers who seem to hate her, or the crazy prince. She must sneak out to rescue Eckles from a slave auction, but she manages to run into both her brothers on the way out. Both accompany her to the festival, but a strange blur of commotion at the festival separates them all, which is advantageous for Penelope, who uses it to attend the slave auction and bid on Eckles, but this plan turns out to not be as fool proof as she thought - Eckles is actually extremely dangerous and a bit unhinged, not quite the docile young knight she remembers from the game.

But, her former slaver isn’t finished with her, as he reveals he is raising a child she birthed while on his estate. He and Rashta enter into a tenuous partnership where she pays him with jewels to raise the child but also do some of her dirty work. Empress Navier continues her pen-pal relationship with Prince Heinrey, reluctant to bring their friendship into public because of his reputation as a womanizer.

For her birthday Sovieshu, the Emperor, suggests a trip for just the two of them to the imperial villa, but Navier is still suspicious of any affection Soveishu shows her after taking on a mistress.

One of her instructors warns her not to let her friend, Allendis, get too close to her, so she starts to suspect him for ulterior motives.
