    LOL, where I live the girl's mother would very likely react fiercely. Here are some variants:

    1) The mother says not a word but pulls the girl away, far away from this indecent picture and that brazen woman.
    2) The mother says: "Would you stop to traumatize my daughter with these horrific stories!"
    3) The mother urges her daughter not to listen to that brazen woman and to look away from that picture.
    4) The mother asks her daughter: "What do you think? Remember when we chained your daddy up to the wall of our house and torched him?"

      Well, none of the outcomes you list had crossed my mind. But you're right, a mother should be quite concerned with Val addressing her child.

    Children are great.  They see things we miss.   Have not been taught to ignore things yet.

      Too bad anyone is taught to ignore things.

    No one on that Blimp resembles the lady in the picture. No one.

    So many questions about that painting. Who is the author? How did he hear this story? Did Val paint it herself? Was it the red headed knight? Did the painter hear about it while at one of Val's funfests :P

      Those are good questions. Originally Val was telling the girl the story of Andromeda, the daughter of Cassiopeia, but I figured that since this doesn't take place in our world, a Greek mythology reference would be out of place.

      Why the painting is there will make a bit of sense further on.
