Lucilla and Burzmalli walk through the bad side of Ysai disguised as a Honored Matre and her customer. Along the way Lucilla sees the dregs of Gammu society and is alarmed at how sheltered she was in the keep. They stop for a drink and proceed to a safehouse and make contact with people who will help them get to Rakis then bed down for the night.

Why is she so shocked?
Maybe she's shocked about seeing it on Gammu and never suspecting it of existing there.

Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.
