Captain d'Ubis cleared her throat. < The Archipelagans don't usually take prisoners, Your Highness. They tend to prefer execution on the spot. The locals had been reporting to us for weeks that the Archipelagans were using the same equipment we see body traffickers and slavers use. > She cleared her throat--the Cynn was reading through his papers again, skimming to see if her story matched what was typed on the sheet--and murmured, < They begged us to look into it. And then when we recovered the victims in this instance...those reports turn out to be true. Which seems to mean-- >

< That the victims in this case were bound for the trafficking industry. > Cynn Numair stood up quite suddenly, interrupting. < That the slave trade is the Archipelago's new dumping ground for their non-human undesirables. We already knew the juntas were letting the trade operate in the Archipelago. > He allowed himself a little sneer, and asked rhetorically, < This is a logical next step for a new junta, isn't it? Lots of money to be made in selling people. >

Captain d'Ubis scrambled out of the chair. < Your Highness? >
