Amari, Tzain, and Zélie board their boat. Secretly, Amari prays they won’t have to compete. The crew of laborers assigned to them is also wary, suspecting that they will simply try to win the prize and then kill the crew. Mustering her courage, Amari steps forward and tells them that she wants them all to live. The strongest man comes forward and says he is willing to try.
Amari feels weak in some moments because she does not want to hurt others or risk getting hurt herself. At the same time, she is strong in that she can muster the courage to lead and inspire others, as she does in this moment on the ship.
