27 May; Conversations

Post  Keiju on Mon Jun 28, 2010 7:14 am

(Takes place immediately after Prisoners.)

"Wiffort," somebody called out. "There's some fella or other snoopin' 'round here lookin' for you."

Wiffort groaned. It was probably that boorish Rifles officer again, come back to register another half-baked complaint against Wiffort's men. Bloody greenjackets. "Send him off, damn your eyes. Captain Harvey can deal with him."

"He's not - "

Boots crunched over the hard ground toward where Wiffort had installed himself on his cot and a long shadow fell across him. Damn it all, the provost lieutenant thought as he let his arm drop away from where it had rested across his eyes. "I do not understand -" But he got no further.

"Lieutenant Wiffort," Graham broke in impatiently, "your men have been accused of assaulting Rifleman Newbury." He seriously doubted that anything involving the woman, Ross, would stick, but the assault on Newbury was the more serious of the charges in any case. "Captain Vickery, of the 60th, intends to see the matter formally addressed with a court-martial."

What? Wiffort blinked, then frowned. "Those damned Riflemen," he growled. "I'd sooner give my lads a medal, if they taught one of those ruffians some manners."

Graham looked levelly at the provost officer, and pointedly did not offer to shake his hand. "Such comments will hardly help the case, Wiffort," he said. "I am Lieutenant Graham, of the 2nd Guards. Colonel Trevor has appointed me as counsel to the defense. I came to consult with you and ask if you had anything to say for the three."

To consult...?

"Of course I've something to say," Wiffort told him. "This whole affair is without a doubt nothing more than a concocted scheme against my men. This Captain Vickery approached me earlier today claiming two of my fellows had gone through his baggage. The very idea... and now there is this charge. Where is the evidence, eh?"

Wiffort's indignation had lent him more verbosity than usual, but with good reason to his own mind. It was probably a Rifleman with a manufactured bruise or two, given by one of his mates to support his claim. Ridiculous.

"There are two witnesses to the assault. Rifleman Newbury is currently being examined by the surgeon, who will take note of his injuries," Graham answered Wiffort, "and moreover, Vickery may prefer charges on behalf of the woman who was involved as well."

"What can you tell me regarding the character of your three men - Sykes, Lambert, and Stephenson?"

"Oh for heaven's sake," Wiffort muttered. This whole business was laughable. "They are three of my steadiest fellows, certainly. Hence I find it quite impossible to believe they would lower themselves to such privations."

"Do you have any reliable men who will testify as to their steady nature?" he inquired. Graham realised that might sound, unintentionally, as if he was suggesting that Wiffort himself was not reliable. However, he left the statement as it was, without adding anything to amend it. He was not overly impressed with Wiffort's belligerent suggestion of teaching the Riflemen some manners. "Their former commanding officers, perhaps?"

Did he have... "Of course. I will have to speak with their original captain, but I am sure he will vouch for their characters. As will I."

"Good," Graham said, and paused. He was not sure how Wiffort could help him further. The man did not seem to be terribly useful. Of course, since Graham was acting on behalf of Wiffort's men - though he'd been ordered to by Colonel Trevor - he supposed it was really the provost officer's responsibility to come up with his own ways to be helpful. "Is there anything else you can add?"

"Certainly," Wiffort replied. "I want it known that I consider this whole business to be a damned charade. But, since it appears to be bound to play out. I should like to speak with my lads and hear the truth of things."

Whether or not the provosts were guilty or not, this was hardly only a 'damned charade' - the Rifleman had been very seriously injured, as Graham understood. It would be a long time before he was fit for duty. He held back his comments. "They're under the custody of my regiment," Graham answered. "I'd intended to go there and speak to them myself as my next order of business."

"If you like," Graham answered simply, lifting and dropping his shoulders, in response to Wiffort's stating the obvious.

"Very well." This was disrupting his routine rather severely. Wiffort was annoyed but he sat up from his cot and reached for his hat. Still. This madness could be sorted easily enough, once he heard what his men had to say.

Graham turned sharply on his heel; he was displeased with the lack of courtesy that Wiffort had shown even to him thus far. He did not bother to try to fall into step with the provost officer, but let Wiffort follow him if he would.

Pompous ass, Wiffort thought and lengthened his stride to follow the Guards lieutenant. He was resolved to put an end to this daft business as soon as he heard his troopers' report.

"I do not expect this affair to go much further," he stated after catching up with Graham. "It should not anyway. Every fellow of sense knows the Rifles are hardly to be trusted."
