I slowly sat back down. "I think we should just wait here," I said.
Kira nodded. "I'm sure it's nothing. We probably just missed a barrel on shipment day and they've come to return it. Look, our island has set the entire schedule off." She laughed, a hint of uneasiness in her voice.
I didn't say anything, my gaze focused on the dock. The ship had come in, and it didn't look anything like the ship that had come to deliver the shipment any time before. It was much smaller and more aerodynamic looking. And at the top flew a black and white flag. I couldn't see what the pattern on it was, but it didn't look anything like the Pralov flag that most sailing vessels flew. I could tell that this ship wasn't normal.
