The Captain and Tomas have kept to themselves since their ordeal. It’s clear to me that they were cowed by their experience. Our neighbor paid a call and they thanked him profusely.
After the ex-islander left, Elijah called us together for a talk. He had not planned on telling us, but something our neighbor had said, released him from his silence and indicated that it would be proper and right to reveal a truth about our friends’ future.
As calmly as only Elijah can, he told our friends that they will die martyrs’ deaths together.
Not surprised, Tomas told us that they each had a vision of the deaths of Elijah and myself.
And Elijah added, “Yes. In Jerusalem.”
