Because Chapter 3 got split into two chapters (namely 3 and 4), we are now at chapter 5.
When the three guards left the keeper just sat back into his chair and lowered his stetson over his eyes.
The inmates were now at will, and the biggest of the bunch quickly approached James, near asking for trouble. The rest of the prisoners only watched, but it was obvious they had his back – nobody ever likes the newcomers. The guard knew what was going on, it was the same procedure every time they brought in someone knew, but couldn’t care less about what they did as long as they stayed behind the bars.
“Let’s make one thing clear, you two pretty boys-…” he began, but before he could finish the sentence, James punched him in the face so hard he knocked him unconscious. The brute fell on the floor and cracked his skull like it was a coconut, blood oozing out of it to all sides.
The other inmates watched, terrified. It was definitely not what they had expected to happen. After a couple seconds of just staring at their former leader lying dead on the floor, they retreated either to the cell’s walls, or their beds without saying a word. James had won them the respect they needed to survive in jail.
“You might want to get this one out.” James stepped up to the bars and called out the jail keeper. “Or at least give us a match and some wood, and we’ll eat him.” He took pleasure in intimidating the inmates some more.
