“To Guvutu—immediately,” was her reply.

“But I won’t permit it.”

“That is why I am going.  You said it once before, and it is something I cannot brook.”

“What?”  He was bewildered by her sudden anger.  “If I have offended in any way—”

“Viaburi!  You no stop I break ’m head belong you.  And now, Miss Lackland, I insist—you must explain.  What have I said or done to merit this?”
