As the sun has risen (the mountains hide the true dawn), and Emmanuel is packing the carriage, you discover that Serafina is refusing to go on.
"You do not understand," she explains, when questioned. She sounds quite controlled, not like last night. "It is not the thing itself, it has nothing to do with the so-called curse on the treasure. It is that the story about the girl is clearly related to the objects that Brother Andrej found. We were destined to find those things, to tell me what I have suspected; that my Eberhardt does not know his own mind. According to friend Delfig's story, he was bedridden and broken ... this is a sign, not a curse. It matters not whether we take those relics with us or not, it is that I and this spurned daughter from centuries ago are tied together somehow. That is why I cannot go."
