944 FE, Septembus - Early Morning
The prisoner who hadn't said anything paled at the sight of the announcement of the dead prisoner. He looked like he might be sick.
"That's going to be us, Right! Except it will be on some nameless front! The Black Company is death wish! I should have let the headsman take my head!"
The prisoner was on the verge of panicking.
"Hey now!" replied Cynric. "You chose to take the Brand. Don't be a chicken shit now! We all die some day."
The crow was cawing admonishing. The unnamed prisoner was gibbering and the guards and crew men were glancing over wondering what all the ruckus was about. Ataxia's crazy antics were also not helping the situation.
The pale skinned girl lost her temper.
"Shut up!" yelled. She raised her and pointed at the prisoner "Auschlaffen!
The prisoner on the receiving end stopped mid gibbering, and slumped to the deck. A second later, and loud snore was heard from the man.
"Better. Idiot should have known what he was in for."
The crow gave a definitely caw again.
She turned to Oz and shook her head. "Nay, we'll be in Ivanstead in an hour. You'll be fine until then. "
The girl glanced over at Ataxia as that answered his question as well. The girl knelt back down at the dead prisoner and covered the corpse back up with the blanket.
"Can't unshackle you if I wanted to. The smith at Ivanstead has to break the chains. The prison guards didn't think to leave us the keys."
"Anyway, need to get ready for arrival."
The girl picked up the uneaten bowl of stew. Cynric was going to say something, but after the display of the woman's temper and whatever spell she cast on the other prisoner, let it drop. Best not to mess with a spell slinger. The girl retrieved the rest of the dishes and headed back to the cabin, leaving you all in silence. The crow flapped and followed after the woman.
