Elam brought word to us about an armed force awaiting us at the administration building. We decided to alter our schedule. Ever since I related to him the roadblocks to leaving, put up by the authorities, Elijah has been pondering the situation.
He felt it the perfect time to retrace the route that brought us into the city, and I added the details I had learned.
We found no impediment to movement in that direction. And Elam was eager to learn also.
That left our afternoon open to call on the administration building again. They barely had time to seal the doors when we arrived.
Elijah spoke. And Elam and I searched the crowd for disaffected denizens.
Twenty seven days.
