After a moment, a wry smile curved in the corner of Captain Huntley舗s mouth, and he set his teacup down on the table with a sharp clack. He unfolded himself from the chair with surprising grace, then picked up his pack and shouldered it.
That bound him to his service. It didn舗t matter that, in a matter of minutes, Morris would be dead. It was an unbreakable rule, one that was never questioned, never doubted. Honor was held at a premium when the rest of the world went to hell. 舠Have you a letter? 舡 There were a few books in his pack, but of any of these he would gladly sacrifice a few pages to transcribe Morris舗s message. Morris shook his head weakly. 舠Can舗t write the message down. 舡 A message that could not be written. A destination beyond the all-encompassing reach of the British postal service.

Not once, through the many places around the world he had been posted, had Huntley ever seen or heard anything like this, and he had seen some of the most incomprehensible things anyone could envision. He was transfixed, his mind immobilized by the sight. The buzzing grew louder still, the nest glowed brighter as the man whispered on. Then something appeared in an opening in the nest, a tiny shine of a metallic wasp.
