Kammani and Lihua found that they had a new attendant in the morning, the oldest priest, Georgios, running their bath for them. Kammani joked to Lihua that they must have worn Demetrios out, the truth revealed to her as they joined the priests for breakfast. Lihua was concerned by Shaozu’s absence (one of several missing from this meal, including Tso and a couple of priests) and by the way Kammani was reacting to what she heard Agamemnon say. Something serious was afoot and she needed to know, though Kammani could not translate for her at present.
Agamemnon continued with his grave warnings which alarmed Kammani. “Demetrios only had one entry wound. That is good news, Kammani, because it means that I will return one of your men to you. Even if the murder was a joint enterprise, I’ll settle for evening the score with the man who stabbed my brother. You may talk to them if you wish, persuade the guilty party to confess or alert the innocent man that his freedom can be bought with a few honest words. Otherwise I will get the truth out of them.”
