Proposition Nobody's Daughter

"Why not?"
Game note: She has no interest in tediously sincere lovers. Ensure your Veils is at least twenty points higher than your Hearts.

Discreet delights

Nobody's Daughter touches you in the right way, in the right places. She responds with visible delight to your own responses. The sounds she produces are thrilling; the press of her flesh is consuming. Why, then, do you feel as if you have been the audience of a very select performance? Be that as it may, it's all sufficiently distracting. The cabin lamp swings, to and fro. The ship churns the sea. Kiss her again.
Game note: Opportunities for other trysts will occur while you're at sea, substantially reducing Terror. However, if you have a lover in port, they might find out.

Answer questions about your past

You've kept your secrets long enough.
