Alex bites her tongue to avoid saying something that might get them
killed. She has faced some pretty long odds however and will not

Telepathically to Vesper, /Can you create a portal to somewhere that we
can get out of here from./
Thinking to her Dagger, /I need you to do a see aura to see if the
General is psychic himself./ If he is not, she is going to listen in on
his thoughts, looking for ways to get out of here otherwise.
ooc: Depending on his response, she can decide what do from here.
Had some issues as well, first with getting sick and then with having
internet / network issues at home.
