A dozen Beekeepers surrounded Adam and his team.
“I have no interest in returning,” said Adam. “This is my home now.”
One Beekeeper stepped forward. “You have made deadly mistakes already. Let us prevent you making more. We can’t have a rogue Beekeeper loose in the world.”
“You had a chance to lead me. I came to you all for help.”
“You wanted our help to wage a war.”
“You could have stopped me! You could have guided me to productive ends! Instead, you treated me like a child.”
“You are a child. And we’re guiding you now. Come home.”
