Because Chapter 3 got split into two chapters (namely 3 and 4), we are now at chapter 5.
They moved around the mass of people, searching for a person who could potentially hold the answers to their questions. They approached several of the workers each, but to no avail. With time they grew somewhat careless and just spoke to everyone they met eyes with, yet still no success. People either didn't wish to talk to them at all, didn't wish to talk about the topic, or didn't know.
They have been eyeing the guards accompanying the herd of men, making sure they didn't try and run, much like an ant would a bowl of sugar or a child a a bar of candy, hesitant to approach because of the possible consequences. But without any success with the common folk, they were near forced to confront one of them. They decided it was best for James to try his luck first, because he was older, then if he failed, it was Tom's turn.
“Excuse me,” James approached one of the guards, “can I ask you-…”
“Get back in line.” The guard interrupted him mid-sentence and showed him away.
James returned to Tom, and somewhat happily reminded him it was now his turn with another guard. Unfortunately, however, the outcome was the same. The guards must have been instructed not to talk with the workers, and they haven’t. Like everyone else, they too respected the hierarchy.
