We did not return to the home of Sy’s parents last night. We did not want to chance jeopardizing them.
Instead we passed a quiet night in the square. No one disturbed us.
Come the morning we had a little incident. A raving maniac rushed Elijah, but fell at his feet when Elijah turned and stared him down. The poor fellow has been tagging along after us ever since.
We took up a position in front of the administration building, and waited. A crowd soon gathered when word circulated that a former madman sat docilely with us.
Then, Elijah stood forth and announced, “In thirty days this city will be destroyed!”
The crowd drew back and we left through them.
