Phaeton shakes his head. *I can only say that she is a key, though there 
are two others. If we meet again, I shall explain it better, but I will 
say nothing else of this.*

Phaeton nods. *And you be cautious. The Captain distrusts you too, and 
if he catches you, astral or not, you and your companions will suffer.*

A guard, armed as well as those guarding Bongo's quarters, has been set 
beside the SAMAS. The Captain is no where to be seen, and the night 
watch is no more than ten men, two on bridge and two patrolling the deck

In the distance, the coast of what must be Ireland can be seen more 
clearly as the mists clear. The lights of a sizable settlement can be 
seen twinkling in the south, though the ship seems to be steaming 
northward and away.
