She is skeptical of the whole idea she needs this creatures as is. As
well, given the choice between giving her life and allowing such a
creature to potentially escape, she would sacrifice her own life. Still,
it is hard to kill a companion by those means. She decides to ask one
final time however,
"Is there any way to cure this malady without the use of this creature?
I have almost never run into a case where there is only one single
option. There just seems too much potential for such a creature to escape."
