We petitioned the commander to replace one of the men guarding us. He was overbearing in his treatment of our injured members. And was threatening them with instant punishment for their slow reactions to his commands.
Why he singled them out when he shied away from the rest of us baffles me. Perhaps it is only an indication of his meanness of character.
The commander heard our plea and replaced the offending guard, but substituted an even more brutish one.
Thankfully about that time a truck from the Supreme Commander’s headquarters pulled into camp and we were spared further bother. (And the guard a possible drubbing from Elijah).
We climbed into the back of the truck and were driven off.
