The text I need to help with is as follows:
On an escritoire there was her note: "I mean to defy, and fly; not from fear, but for the delight of the defiance itself. Can you come?"
The House Of Sounds, M.P.Shiel, 1896
It may sound like a dumb question but I would like to know if the person asks the recipient of her note "to come to her (to her room or where she is right now)" or "to come with her away (to leave the house)".
Without further context, it could mean either of those — probably the latter.
