“I hate to say it, but Penny Dreadful was a bust.”“Where are we going now?” Cait asked, trying to leave their failure behind them.“Jace wanted to meet us at the Queen.” Burian said. “She went chasing after something, but I don’t know what.”cheap air max uk They started down a set of steps that looked like they had been welded on to the walkways around the shipping container quite recently. They were a few levels up, still surrounded by containers, but it gave them a better idea of how the Prime Meridian was put together. That is, one tower, one layer at a time. Walkways twisted in weird angles, bolted or welded to other walkways at best ― Cait did see a spare plank bridge a gap between two walkways ― installed after their usefulness was recognized. The wires that hung over the avenue had climbed their way up, tacked to the sides of containers. Water pipes could be seen in a few places, though Cait noticed catchment basins at the cheap air max 90 EMtop of a lot of towers, too, about as randomly as there were potted trees.“‘Treasure-hunter’ is a word that gets thrown around a lot today,” Billy said, half amused.Burian scowled. “It’s not treasure-hunting when you know it’s something big.”Billy shrugged. “Anyway, what could she do without the map?”“I was hoping she had heard something.”“You’d have better luck with the Information Traders. You know, before you killed most of them.”Burian spun around. “Whoa! Hang on. I didn’t kill anyone.”“But you did claim it,” Cait said absently, still looking at their surroundings as they moved.“Yes, and that’s it.” He started to move down the steps again. “I’ve roughed them up a couple of times, sure. I’ve got to keep up appearances. But killing a fine source of information is counterproductive. And if I recall, I was nowhere near the murders I took credit for.”Cait didn’t respond. A couple of trees stood sentry on a ridge of containers, and she was trying to work out why. A park, maybe?Billy thought a moment. “Still, it’s fun to watch the Great Burian cheap air max 90 hyperfuse Lake be dismissed outright.”Lake fumed a little. “I’m sorry for wasting your time,” he said curtly.“Whose time is being wasted?” Cait said, still paying more attention to their surroundings. “We are waiting, if I remember right.” They touched down on the deck of the Prime Meridian, and started towards the avenue. Burian led them through the crowd, turning them towards the looming, monolithic control house that stood towards the aft of the ship.Billy sidled up next to Cait. “You seem to be enjoying yourself.”Cait gave a small nod. “This is an interesting world.”“You don’t know the half of it,” Burian said.There was a statue ahead where the containers moved to the side; Cait couldn’t tell if the statue had been there first,cheap air max 90 prem tape or was placed afterwards. People gathered around it, something of a meeting point, and it was the first time Cait noticed kids on the Prime Meridian. It had never struck her that families would be here, and yet…Jace waited at the base of the statue, still holding Auburn and Toby by the shoulders. She made eye contact with Burian.
