Yani awoke again; this time because he was deposited into a chair. Dumped, more like. The chair had a soft cushion, which did nothing to stop the pain in his hip from flaring, and pulling him immediately to consciousness.
The chair also had large padded arms, to which the guards who had dragged him in cuffed both arms with nylon restraints. Twice each. They did the same with his ankles.
He was seated in a circular room. This one had a huge round table on a floor of white marble flagstones that radiated from a central circle. Lights in patterns of star constellations twinkled on the ceilings, but more notable were the three-headed torches flaming on the walls.
If you had a tasting in this room, you would be impressed.
“Good morning, Sword 23,” said Creased Trouser Man. “Anyone who is following the whereabouts of your locator device thinks you’re having an interesting day in the mountains even now. But let’s you and I have a chat before we say good-bye.”
Once again, Yani struggled to come to his senses before speaking. He hated that this man was using his Eden identity. He worked to regulate his breathing.
Physically, Yani felt ill. It was likely a combination of the drugs, jet lag, and not having eaten for many hours. Could he clear his mind to focus, even if his body was nowhere near a hundred percent?
Yani had two immediate objectives: to be thought useful enough not to be killed here and now, and to convince them he was physically weaker than he was. Creased Trouser Man must have some questions for him, or would he have simply been shot and dumped.
