89.


Wanda frowned deeply. I am very uncomfortable leaving him here alone, she told Stettin as they left Haris Streeling apartment.

He wont have it any other way, Stettin said.

Chen wants him alone-to assassinate him!

I dont think so, somehow, Stettin said. Chen could have had him killed a hundred, a thousand times. Now, hes on record as condoning the Encyclopedia, and Hari is the patriarch.

I dont think politics on Trantor is ever that simple.

You have to believe what your grandfathers predictions say.

Why? Wanda asked sharply. He doesnt believe in them anymore!

The lift door opened and they stepped into the empty space, to drop less than five floors. The landing was heavier than they expected-some maladjustment in the buildings grav-fields. Wanda stepped from the exit on aching ankles.

I need to get away from here! she lamented. Weve been waiting so long-a world of our own-

But Stettin shook his head, and Wanda gazed at him in both irritation and anxiety that his doubts were justified. What are the chances, do you think, he asked, that even if the Project does go on, and the Plan continues, well ever really leave Trantor?

Wandas face flushed. Grandfather wouldnt deceive meus. Would he?

To keep a very important secret, and to push the Project forward? Stettin pursed his lips together tightly. Im not so sure.
