E is for Errand (East Coast of Africa)

By | 1 August 2014

As the waters jostle to see the Captain, the Sultan’s emissary speaks –

“Captain, that you are of a Kingdom… The King that orders this island has much joy. He does not desire more than to see you, to remodel you. You are welcome, distrustful. You, armed, because of the laborious way, bring weak and tired people. If searching for merchandise, bring hot spices or drugs. Or if you want fine rubies, rigid diamonds, you will take everything.”
