Jaffery was incredibly excited about the trip. How many people ever got the chance to leave Harmonia? At 23, he was the youngest of the group – and in the new spirit of openness, he’d been bragging about the adventure to his friends. Tindleson was a charismatic leader and Jaffery would have followed him anywhere.
There was just one thing he didn’t like about the whole prospect – Lunkin. The deputy said all the right things, but there was something off about him that Jaffery couldn’t place. Everything he said was accompanied by a knowing smile, or more like a sneer. Like he knew something you didn’t.
Still, it was probably nothing. Jaffery told himself to concentrate on the bigger picture – doing something great for the benefit of humanity.
