Swamped Chapter 135 Page 5

“If this Burgundy fellow was so insistent about it, why didn’t he inform them himself?” you ask. “Seems a bit strange to me.”

“Because he wanted to lecture the rest of us,” the knight with the bell groans. “Not that he’s an officer, mind. He just can’t help himself.”

“He’s not even a squad leader,” the taller of the female knights grumbles.

“None of the rest of us are, either,” says the shorter woman. “And let’s be honest – does anyone else here really want to take charge?”

Everyone goes silent for a bit.

“What did he lecture you about, then?” you ask. Might as well keep things moving.

“The usual. What it means to be a good soldier,” the short woman replies. “I imagine Brian’s getting even more of an earful.”

“If he hasn’t run off,” the taller woman mutters.

“Burgundy would be yelling at us to find him by now if he had. That man has a lot of faults, but if there’s one thing he believes in, it’s not abandoning a fellow soldier. No matter how lousy a soldier they are.”

Well. That gives you an idea of what Burgundy’s doing, but not where he’s doing it. So it seems you’ll have to direct the conversation just a little more.
