    * Coleman: Sam is a distraction. Her goals clearly didn’t align with ours, and she is in no condition to help even if we could trust her.
    * Eliza: Empathy can be a powerful force.
    * Gamma: If I had shot her right away, others might have considered that murder and objected.
    * Coleman: As I’m not running this team, I have to accept the delay. Priority remains making sure we are not surprised by a trap.

    Preston had been relieved when Al’s truck plowed its way through the junk, but dismayed when the man’s priority turned out to be saving Sam. Glad that he had a balaclava hiding his facial expression, Preston shifted position a bit to where he could scan the team and the Gaz. It took him a few meters farther from the others than he’d have preferred — but the artifact was in the Gaz so it had to be watched, and the entire team was likely needed to complete this mission so being able to give them some warning was also key.

    <<Team [Preston] Staying on overwatch. Please be quick. >>

    * Monkey: You know, if I’d been the one giving first aid to Sam, she might have thanked me with a kiss.
    * Gamma: I never have put much effort into learning first-aid. Easing her injuries enough that she was in a kissing mood seems unlikely.
    * Oleg: “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live” And keeping her alive might bring a lot of suffering, the woman seems to lack second thoughts.
