Book 15: Delegates and Delegation — Part III: Conflagration


NARRATOR: Another call...

BREYA: Madam Secretary, the Neoafans have some technology to share.

Secretary: What technology, Madam Tangent?

BREYA: I'm not at liberty to discuss it yet, but I think you'll benefit from being among the first to learn of it.

Secretary: If you wish to curry political favor, you should begin by not wasting my time.

Out with it.

BREYA: I'm sorry.  In the interest of not wasting your time, goodbye.

HABAN: I've never seen anyone curry political favor quite like that.
