Man of War – Excerpt No. 145

The men ended up in cells for the night, requiring a prisoner watch. That meant there were fewer soldiers in attendance tonight. The additional watches ensured the men did not hurt themselves, or anyone else, until they addressed the situation. The men on duty will learn of what they missed, and ensure no one else spoils their fun ever again.

Meanwhile, Sergeant Chabanel, with his blond hair and blue eyes, suffered heavy losses in a recent clash with the Spanish. While they were quick with sending them conscripts this time, that meant fresh troops they needed to train and integrate. That puts a strain on everyone else, and my gift to them lets them know I’m aware of their challenges.

Picture focused on two uniformed men behind bars. Clothes and background appropriate for 16th century France.
