Because Chapter 3 got split into two chapters (namely 3 and 4), we are now at chapter 5.
The child they spoke with back in town noticed their dropped jaws, and stepped closer.
“Astonishing, isn’t it?” He asked still from a distance, but didn’t wait long enough for them to respond. “At first sight and from a distance, most definitely.” he remarked shortly after. “So feast your eyes now, because after a single shift here,” he paused and let the anticipation build up, “never mind. See for yourself.”
“Just how long is the shift?” Asked Tom.
“Thirty six hours. Then you get to rest for twelve and have some fun, but really, you just sleep for twelve hours straight.”
While Tom was muttering a silent “What the fuck,” to himself, James had another question arise. “What’s in it for you – I mean us? What’s the pay?”
“Living to see another day.” The boy giggled, but seeing as James didn’t, and was expecting a follow-up answer, he continued. “Five ribes a shift.”
“Yes. Coins. Money. Our currency. I don’t have any with me now, but you’ll see when you’re done.”
“And just what can you buy with that?”
“Just enough to take care of your family, really. And some whiskey on the weekends.” The young boy smiled slyly.
