The wisdom of the directions only became clear after the events unfolded. I received confirmation of the instructions as related by Reuben (and reiterated by Elijah), but they gave me great difficulty, for they required me to break the covenant struck between Elijah and me – to never separate.
But I set my mind to obey and we did.
When Moglen left the high place, I crossed over to it while Elijah and Reuben distracted the drone.
I crushed the idol with any rocks that came to hand and tossed the pieces into the fire.
After giving the drone a chance to record the proceedings, Elijah brought it down with his raised staff.
Swiftly I rejoined my friends and we departed.
