The sun has already basically set by the time the party starts making their way towards the dock.

Higaide says nothing, though his face looks pretty grim.

After a tense moment of no one saying a word, Rory finally breaks the silence with "Why were we spread out over a hundred feet with just the three of us?"

Zeiss glances at Rory and then answers:

"Because I was scouting ahead."

"And you didn't think to come back," he replied. "I'm not wearing the right boots to be pointing fingers, but now two Aluvian soldiers are dead, and my people got caught in the middle."

Zeiss grumbles.

"Yes, I know. I made a mistake and we're all paying for it. I'm sorry. And be careful with the words you choose. People could be listening."

He stays silent for a moment, then adds:

"I just hope Sareth is all right. Maybe they were there to take care of the people who brought him in this district."

"The urchins'll be all right," he reassured himself out load. "They'll be in for a rough couple days, then the system will spit them back out with a 'sorry' and a pat on the back."

"Anyway, nothing we can do about it now. If we have to deal with the men in armor again, you'll have to cover for us. Think about what you're going to say if it comes to that, and let us know so us humans can go through the motions."

"Right, Higs?" he added, nodding to Higaide. It wasn't hard to miss the lightning bolts bouncing off the two when the thoughts of each about the other went through hot and cold flashes in short time they knew each other, by Rory's reckoning.

"Higaide?" he repeated, trying to pry a response out of him.

"............................"

Just as it seems like he's about to say something, he stops himself. His grimace intensifies, if that were possible, but he keeps his eyes forward. He does it once more, looking like there's something just waiting to be blurted out, but he stops himself again, at length.

"Just...." - he finally forces out - "...just keep moving."

Practically through gritted teeth.

Zeiss glances alongside Higaide, but says nothing. Suddenly, he stops in his tracks.

"...I sent Sareth to negotiate with the Aluvian military. To sell them food."

An expression of confusion appears on his face.

"Why the hell would they take him away? Doing this when the Exchange is more or less on Aluvia's side is stupid. Unless..."

Thoughts are racing through his mind.

"Sareth knows something. Or they think he knows something. I can't..."

He looks around. The district isn't on high alert.

"I'm going to meet Ursolan. And maybe hire some mercenaries."

Higaide squints, until his eyes are needles.

"What's on your mind?"

Zeiss is now searching for a taxi.

"We're in Holtburg, the Aluvian capital. Military soldiers don't just hide themselves in the Veil. No, they're using it. And anyone who uses the Veil is doing something illegal."

"They did have their two lookouts wearing nondescript gear..." - he mutters, still squinting into nothing - "What i don't get is why go half-assed about it. Couldn't have been beyond them to clad their whole force in plain armor. And that sentry was practically putting himself on display when they could have posted hidden guards all over the place, like that one Elf guy. On the other hand, he didn't even identify himself when he halted you, and the way it was set up had ambush written all over."

Then his face twitches.

"Unless... we're getting it backwards. Unless those guys weren't military trying to pass as rabble, but the other way around."

"If they were, we might be in serious trouble by giving ourselves away to him, considering what just happened back there."

"In practice, the Aluvian military is separated from the Aluvian government. But jsut in case, I won't mention the incident."
