Elijah wants me to accompany him. Not just ashore, but to continue across this subcontinent and perhaps rejoin the ship at a port on the other side.
I want to go, but not before discharging my responsibilities.
Elijah will wait, but will wander around the waterfront in the meantime.
We have landed the cargo for this port and that of the prior one. Due to our status (i.e. No mark) we will not be allowed to take on any other business. That cuts our time short here. The Captain and I had to battle the port authorities for more time and space to get down to that mystery container.
They only relented, when we shared our suspicions of potential danger.
