The broken moon, Daedalus, was starting its slow descent toward the horizon as Sir Frank tucked a folded parchment into the monkey's short blue vest. The monkey spread its feathered wings and gave a few anxious flaps. "To Lord British, my friend. It's important, so make your best safe speed." The monkey chattered in response and launched into the night sky, turned toward the southwest, and disappeared among the stars. Sir Frank left his resignation on the Principal Sovereign's desk, and pulled the door of the College securely shut. He had a new mission. "Alone and unafraid", he said to himself as he passed through the town gates, and was swallowed by darkness.
