"She may know you, but does she trust you? If she decides to bolt or hide, we don't have a good means of finding her, and she is our only current lead on several issues, not just Ben."
Specifically she demanded you never contact her again, and I'm wondering if Fade's boss employed her, as we delivered a letter FROM that woman too her inn.
Whichever way we do it we need to move fast as we may have just tipped off Fade's boss that we know of a loose end connecting her to scuv agitation. Maria's life expectancy may be short atm.
Showing up and telling her she must run now, as the guild knows she killed a runner of theirs might be a very fast way to get her moving... but not in a direction we can easily control.
