Because Chapter 3 got split into two chapters (namely 3 and 4), we are now at chapter 5.
They finished their meals in peace and handed the dirty plates to the officers standing near the food slit.
James sought out Ralph to try and gather some useful information, but before he could ask him anything, Crax and four of his policemen came downstairs, and complete silence ensued. One of the prisoners let out a loud fart, but nobody dared laugh or point a finger. It was as if nothing had happened. Crax then pulled out his night stick and pressed it against the iron bars while he walked over to the second cell, producing a clanking sound that pierced the silence. He stopped at the door to their cell and looked directly at James and Tom.
“I promised you the mines, that right?” They both nodded. “Come on then, we don’t have all day.” The police officers he brought with him pulled out their guns, as was protocol, and the jail keeper unlocked and opened the doors. “Anyone wants to join them in the mines?” Crax asked when the two made it out the door, but nobody answered. “Looks like you two boys are going alone. Let’s go.” Crax slammed the door shut and escorted Tom and James upstairs with the other officers. “Don’t mind them. It’ll be fun. They’re just lazy.” Crax wanted to calm them down. He knew they were wondering why they chose to stay in prison instead of going to work.
