"That's right," Jahura acknowledges to Zander, "my way. The way I've always done it. The hard way. I know that's unpalatable to you guys but cheating just isn't in my dossier. Check it if you like."
Zander blushes. First a loser, now a cheater. Will this day ever end?
"First," she continues, "assess the situation. Figure out where we are and what our options are. Then follow the string of circumstance back to where it all went to Sheol and determine if it can be salvaged. With any luck, there may be a jewel remaining in this Pandora's box that can be used as ransom."
"And then we take it back when they're not looking?" Tully asks with interest.
She shakes her head.
"This isn't Two Indian Horses, Tully." Jahura says, "although, that's an Idea we could put on contingency."
"Now wait a minute," Zander says, "I've never heard of Two Indian Horses. I may not be an expert on all the coups in the Library, but something tells me you're pulling that one out of thin air. "
Jahura smiles a wicked smile.
