You cannot kill her. Though it may be your own life for hers, something inside you refuses to commit such an act.  You step out of the shadows and drop your dagger.  "I'm sorry," you say, "I was so wrong."

You just stand there, staring at her.  The wind comes up lightly behind her, rustling her dress and sending the smell of sweet perfume over to you.  What can you do?  You can't just leave, you'll both be hunted and killed.  You do have a defense--you know almost everthing Shal'Kari knows, and something he doesn't.  Your secret abode, the place where you go to get away, the place nobody knows about but you.  But to share it with a stranger?
