Part 12


After they were booked, their next checkpoint included getting food. They were both instructed to pick up a one strap linen bag at the entrance, then pick one item from each of the several baskets lined up in the hallways before the next checkpoint. The baskets were filled with different foods – bread, sausage, fruit and the like – thumb sized stones of Lyterite and unclean iron cups. The cloth bags were quite heavy after they filled them up, as they should be, since they represented all the food they were getting for the next 36 hours.

The last and final checkpoint was them getting a hold of their tool – the pickaxe – and since they were new, it was the only tool they were allowed. James shook his head no and sighed when he picked it up, and the guard asked him whether he would rather drive the wheelbarrow, to which he hastily replied with a resounding no. At least with the pickaxe he could stay in one place and work, not have to drag a heaping wheelbarrow full of ore up and down the mine, especially during the day in the scorching sun.

Yeah, but he could have offered rides in the wheelbarrow and made a few friends. ;)

Heeeey, I didn't think of that! They definitely need at least an improvised "ambulance" that drives people around in wheelbarrows. :P
