"Well, I'm glad you weren't any trouble to us." the Prince says,
clearly a little agitated.  "The same can't be said of your
ex-patriots closer to our borders."

Osiris struggles to his feet, his eyes wide.

"Alister, how in the devil?" he asks.  "And, by God, you've still got
both your eyes!"

The prince looks quizically at Osiris and Mr. Quinn.  "Apparently the
Cyberknight can vouch for Mr. Quinn?"

"I don't know if I'd go as far as vouch for him." Osiris says.  "But
we met a couple of years ago, and he's not going to blow us up or call
the winds of hell down on us."
