As Calvin Candie might say in a thick accent:

“It’s a custom here in this game... that upon the completion of the finals and the winner being decided that the two par-tays... SHAKE HANDS. It’s a gesture of goodwill.”

Needlessly to say the conversation went south with her so you left with no handshake

But I would have refused if this was actually me and not IM me.

This isn't a dilemma at all. I give her nothing - she knew the risks of entering the tournament. She herself said she was 'determined' to do anything to win, and then she lost. Sorry, she knew what she was getting into, she played, she gambled, she lost. Now she deals with the consequences on her own. I don't go to Atlantic City, win, then bail-out all the people who lost when they went into the game with eyes wide open from the start, that's just absurd.

Not to mention if I already got screwed because I was promised 2 billion but corruption and taxation meant I only got a fraction of it (10 million) then I sure as hell am not giving a single cent to someone who was determined to kill me and then lost fair and square. Sorry, not sorry.

So...tell me if I'm missing something here.

I believe that she wishes she died during the fall

Because now she feels disgraced and ruined (and is obviously in a lot of pain)

If I were in her shoes I'd either request/bribe for a Brompton Cocktail and whatever drugs it'd take to put me down, or I'd be breaking out of the hospital guns blazing until I'm eventually killed and die in a pool of blood in a hospital corridor or out in the streets. Or alternatively go after the protagonist but I doubt that'd be possible since the police would probably do a good job putting me down.

There are lots of people out there who have medical bills, are homeless or are living in poverty I could give my money too. And most of them didn't (a) threaten to kill me and (b) didn't start out fine but entered a risky, life-threatening competition intending to get richer with their eyes wide open to the risks of the endeavour.

Screw compassion, I'll take the money.

I give her nothing. In fact I let the police know where she is. They quite possibly ticket her for attempted suicide then she is involuntarily committed to the insane asylum for being slightly crazier than your average ex-girlfriend.

You see, I actually would have given her some money, but then you went ahead and had her be a complete twat to me. Which is understandable I guess but not endearing.

Probably cover medical expenses and give her 50 thousand to live off.

It's doable. Snatch a scalpel or other sharp weapon and keep it hidden. Ask to be alone with a doctor, say you're feeling some sort of tightness or something. Let him get close to check you out. Pull out the weapon and bring it to his neck. Ideally if it's the scalpel then you don't even need to worry about how hard you'd have to fight with him; it'd be very easy to kill him. Then make demands. Maybe you have some people on the inside that can help. There are ways to go about it if you're creative enough.
