17. Surrounded

I watched Until Barney became a far speck in the sky--he had flown right to work checking around the docks as I hoped he would--and he would find out anything I needed to know--I was sure of that.

There was nothing for me to do but wait.

I was walking slowly back to my office when I was stopped in my tracks by an ugly harbor seal which slid out from between two large rocks.

"Hold it right there, Crab!" he snarled.

I immediately glanced behind me and sure enough two more seals flopped into view. These rascally, cowardly harbor seals always travel in gangs!
