She's tempted to spend the next eight hours moping, but not very tempted, because they're stuck in the jungle with not more than two days of full rations for a single person. She doesn't actually need to eat anymore - she'd forgotten this, momentarily, in the shock of being stuck here, since she's so used to eating anyway - but Elie does, and she needs to keep Elie alive because - she doesn't feel like she should have to have a reason for that. She is very aware that if you don't eat for long enough, you die, and that eking a living out of an unfamiliar wilderness presumably requires even more work than supporting yourself via farming does. Maybe it'll be easier if they can find any sort of decent-sized animal to kill and cook, but if they go looking for one then they might find any number of other things.
She un-merges with Wishbone (who also needs to eat) and spends an hour getting her spells back. She lights up the forest with a cantrip, hoping that this won't draw the attention of anything she can't handle. She explores the immediate area for anything that looks food-like, and then heads a little further out, in ever-widening circles, tasking Wishbone with sitting right next to Elie and alerting her if something is wrong. She finds a lot of insects. She supposes they could probably eat insects if they had to. If she could climb, she could probably find some fruit somewhere, but the first branches are too high up and she doesn't want to waste a fly spell on it.
It takes her a while to circle back around to thinking about what she's going to do. The first order of business is to get the handcuffs off. She tries to picture the sort of dislocation necessary for something like that, and isn't at all sure that it can be done without damaging the bones themselves. The wrist has a lot of bones in it; she will probably need to dislocate several to get them through, and the widest part of the hand is above that, which means she also has to dislocate several of his fingers, and fingers are so easy to break if they get hit with enough force, and she doesn't even know whether she's capable of applying the necessary force -
It's really very unfair that she can't just not touch him. Not touching him would be, comparatively speaking, very easy. But she has to do this stupid complex procedure that she's never done before, as quickly as possible, while also trying not to cause additional damage, and she has to hold his hands to do it, and it's stupid and she hates it and she wishes she were home. Wishes that they could go back to their previous level of awkwardly ignoring what she'd asked of him, under circumstances where she was actually able to control how much contact she had and didn't have to continuously monitor her emotions for whether they were going to make him feel guilty and powerless and horrible.
She wishes he'd said yes. But he didn't. And if he's judging her now for - pursuing what she wants even though she doesn't have the wisdom and experience necessary to make difficult or important decisions at this stage in her life, then, well, he won't be the first. And maybe he's right, maybe she does need more experience to make this decision. She definitely doesn't feel like she's thinking entirely clearly. It's - hard, to think clearly, in this situation, given all of the guard rails that are missing from it. But she will have to do her best.
When Elie wakes up, she's roasting mushrooms over a little contained fire. They're not poisonous. It's anyone's guess how much nutritional value they have.
