Even the Invalids of the Wilds need to be informed
Feature Article: Should We Start a Rebellion?
Advice Column by Freeman: Save the Girl!
I'm in love. This girl is amazing, kind, sweet, funny, beautiful, and so much more. Good thing I'm in the Wilds right? Problem is she lives inside the fence and is about to undergo the procedure. I'm pretty sure she loves me too. I want to help her escape, but is it worth the risk? I couldn't live with myself if she was killed or thrown into Crypts. I've mentioned taking her back to the Wilds with me, and although she doesn't turn the offer down, she just looks at me with a guilty face and sad eyes. Her and I have been outside the fence once before so I know it's possible to make it out. To wrap it up, should I break her out or leave her? Thanks!

Dear Lover Boy:
Are you sure you're an Invalid? To me, helping her escape is the very obvious answer. I mean I understands your lives are on the line but could you stand knowing you let her turn into an emotionless zombie? And if you already risked it once, doing it again shouldn't be that difficult. Most people in the Wilds would be more than willing to help you two lovebirds. So go on, knight in shining armor, and save your damsel in distress!
