Man of War – Excerpt No. 48

“Anything to report?” The Comte asked. 

“Nothing to report since the doctor went in, my lord,” a guard said. 

Marc recognized the voice as being Hugo, one of the Comte’s personal guards. There would be no way of getting past them without being reported. Bertrand would have no sway either

“Make sure it stays that way,” the Comte said.

In the distance there was some yelling followed by several footsteps echoing through these cavernous halls. Whatever the commotion was, it was enough to concern his father.

“Go,” the Comte ordered. “I’ll stay here while you sort out that mess.”

The corpulent count talking to an guard. Clothes and style appropriate for 16th century France.
