Complaints were lodged with the authorities against Elijah and myself by someone or “someones” with whom we talked yesterday. They claimed that we attempted to seduce people away from fealty to Stan and the world order. And made even wilder accusations that we were kidnappers.
This hubbub has made the Captain’s negotiations regarding the ship all the more difficult. He’ll go back tomorrow after they have some time to calm down.
Then there were some consequences. He has confined us to the ship for the immediate future.
Elijah was compliant for the space of an hour, before deciding to go ashore by himself. I prevailed upon him to go to the Captain with his plan.
He relented and we went.
