We are underway. It was a swift passage out of the harbor. We were in the open sea in short order. Next stop – our island, in about three days, according to the calculations of the Captain. And that soon only if all goes well.
The Purser informs us that we have a new passenger. One of the world government officials has stayed on to accompany their container to its destination. He has a berth forward with the night crew. The Captain insisted on the arrangement.
Elijah pressed the Purser for a description of its contents, but he said he can’t. It’s a matter of his integrity. We understand completely.
We trust that whether we know or not will not matter.
