Pleading

“I go to my room’ is Leoshine’s first attempt to engage for herself, to change her captivity.  She tried for her sisters and was quashed, but her father offered hope, a tie to the past.  This time she is on her own.

What emotions do you feel when you are pleading?  Hope that you can make a difference? Grief because you are missing something worth pleading for?  Fear that you cannot overrule the reason you are missing something important ? ‘Disappointment’ seems an anemic word to describe the devastation of denial.

Robin doesn’t take Leoshine’s request seriously. He seems to be a brick wall.  We see a brief flash of Leoshine’s hope when she recognises the way to her room.  Is her hope permanently killed when she sees her past erased?
