Before you read the next chapter, complete today's task first.

 

"‘Now, I need one of you gentlemen to assist Major Roach in burying the body of our dear Chief Advisor – and be sure and put him where he won’t be found. The rest of you are free to return to your families and inform them of the danger threatening our beloved Cornucopia.’"

 

Reread that last sentence. Imagine you have to return to your family and tell them of the immediate danger they are in. How would you do it and what approach would you take? Would you be direct and tell them the truth? Would you tell a white lie to your children as to not panic them and tell your partner something else? Or would you make up a much more wild story?

Your task today is to write a script for what you would say once you return home.
