Description[edit]

Closeup of Jack's face in profile. Jack smirks and talk to Wanda off panel. A group of decrypted infantry gaze on in the background.

She wrinkled her nose with irritation. Behind her, Chief Parson was issuing some whispered orders. "Call me what you please. But can you speak? Of...what we forswore to?" She clutched his upper arm and looked at him urgently.

"Tell him as soon as you can," she ordered, yielding him a rare and conspiratorial smile.

And now perhaps he understood her eagerness to croak and decrypt him.

"Of course," he said, tentatively returning the smile, "Sister Wanda."
