Hostages

Prologue

Six men sat around a large table.

"It is agreed then," said one. "We will take the hostages one week from tonight."

"Yes, word has come through. Plans are now definite for the gathering," said the second voice. "The three will be there."

There was silence around the table. "There must be no killing. I will not sanction any killing," added a third more cultured voice.

Another voice, hoarse and fierce, broke the silence. "I cannot guarantee that. Let me remind you that I only agreed to no killing of the civilian. The military hostage may be a different matter. Circumstances will dictate what must be done."

The first voice spoke again. "Our demands must be firm. Absolutely no negotiations."

"Again…circumstances may change. Let us remain flexible," responded the hoarse voice. "The Federation Council is a monstrous bureaucracy.

All six men were silent.
