“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?
