I kept the drone up the first half of the day. Then Elijah ordered it down. Still it told us what we needed to know.
Our friend Jezer was being held in the last police station we checked. Obviously they did not attach much importance to him for he was lightly guarded.
We maintained our position and observed the comings and goings. And formulated our plan of rescue.
We marched in and claimed him as a runaway slave. Elijah misdirected their attention by offering a sum well below what they were asking. And they never noticed that both of us lacked the mark. Instead they were willing to haggle.
And accepted Elijah’s offer when he raised it to their liking.
