Chapter Twenty Four - In India

The man, dark haired and dressed in the style of the country he was visiting, glanced at the demure figure walking beside him.

In fact, seven layers covered her in all; ‘neath which her scantily clad body was not demure at all.

Jack's grand plan )

*Sarai was a woman in the Old Testament, wife of Abraham. She came into Pharaoh's presence while her husband was traveling, and claimed to be Abraham's sister, so Pharaoh would not kill the men and claim her. He still desired her for himself, though he did not touch her. At the time, she was approximately eighty years of age, and still a looker.

**Scheherazade is from Arabian Nights. To save herself from being executed by her husband the king, she began an exciting story every night, and did not finish it "until tomorrow." By telling over a hundred stories, she saved her life and caused the king to fall in love with her and therefore spare her life.
