Laputa would be in a hurry, and therefore he would try to cross at the nearest point.
Nearly every tribe had its secret chest, and our friend Laputa had the use of them all.
I could not warn Laputa, for that would seal my own fate, even if I were believed.

Laputa strode down the hall, with Henriques limping behind him.
With the password I would gain admittance, and there would wait for Laputa and Henriques.
Henriques was after the rubies, and it was his interest to get Laputa across the river before the attack began.
I was not afraid now of Kaffir guns, but of the black magic of which Laputa had the key.
