‘Captain, you worried I’ll get there ahead of you?’ I turned around laughing, and started slowly walking backwards, watching the guards behind catch us up. ‘You play a dangerous game,’ he said. ‘One that could make you enemies.’
Approaching the lights, I could see his face, but he still gave little away.
‘Stand here,’ he said. The barricade opened, and he walked through, disappearing into the crowd that parted before him. Behind him the gates closed.
‘Not a very friendly welcome,’ I said to the guards. ‘Your Captain doesn’t say much.’
I saw them exchange glances, stand firmly to attention.
