Afternoon by the lake within the national park.
Yargo had been awake for 36 hrs in apprehension of the journey to this place. This was not un-warranted. Moved around from location to location, he was kept distracted as a precaution against any discoveries that might be made in accidental conversation. His mere presence was a burden of intolerable size, and a hastily thrown together program of ramshackle isolation was enacted.
When finally, beyond the control of the plan, Yargo was faced with a somewhat more than awkward audience (if the main antagonist’s expression of continuous alarm was anything to go by), it was only by great strength that Yargo was able avoid the blatantly obvious and guaranteed incendiary device of…
…merely asking questions.
