“Master Plan?” the King, utters incredulous ,“what Master Plan?”
“Now you see how your questions will lead to more questions?” the creature says, “let us get started with the books, shall we?”
“With Master Plan comes Master Planner. When can we get to know him?” the Captain continues.
“HUSH!” the creature thunders, “No one ever speaks of her, her name must never be uttered even with the faintest whisper or you’ll be condemned to becoming a dot on my arm.”
“Yeah, I get it,” the Captain says, “something to do with your fucking code of ethics!”
