My story takes place in a Middle Ages world. A fog has appeared all around the country, and no one knows why, but it makes you get sick. They have never seen a disease like that, it's very contagious (only by touching) and you may die in two days if you don't survive (but surviving takes a horrible price, but that is not the point).
A girl, that knows a lot about medicine has the cure and does not want to share it with anyone because she wants to use her knowledge in order to overthrow the King and become queen of the kingdom.
As she needs to create an army to fight against the King she starts to cure people and make others immune in order to have someone by her side.The King does not know how to stop the fog and helping his people, so he starts to search the reasons for it but does not have a clue.
The girl has a building in the vicinity of a city, far and small enough not to call the attention of the King where she helps the people and creates her army. There some people could stay to sleep and eat not to return to the city and maybe being discovered, but it’s not very big, so some people should go back to their houses and maybe they would tell everything without knowing, what would end very badly for the girl, because she would lose her opportunity to overthrow the King.
There is a nobleman friend of hers that takes the sick people to the building in order to get help, so it’s not a problem how she gets the people. The problem is that she has to do it in a hidden way and that would be difficult because an army should be huge, but she can’t give so many people as much a bedroom to sleep in.
So my question is: if she does not have room enough for so many people and they have to leave the building and return home, how can she make everyone to stay by her side?
I know that she saved all of them so maybe they are grateful, but how could she make sure know one is going to tell the King?
For this question I though that maybe she can convince them that she is a goddess and that she is going to stop the King (a lot of people hate him because he only care about war and being more powerful) and save everyone from the disease.
My head is a bit messy now. I'm sorry if this is written wrong, but I'm not an English speaker so it's difficult. Thank you!
