You go limp. Maybe if she thinks you’re dead, she’ll put you down.
“Hey! Don’t try to play that game with me, I can tell you’re breathing.”
She pauses for a moment.
“Shit, wait. Maybe the desert fever knocked her out. Better take her over to Doc, just in case.”

“Hey, you there! Fetch me one of the empty feed sacks, would you? They’re about the right size to hold a grebling.”
Well. That doesn’t sound good. Both the part where you’re going to be stuffed in a sack, and the part where there’s someone else coming.
If you don’t act now, you probably won’t get another chance to escape. But what can you do?
Can you whip out a mistflower?
