7 June; Partners in crime

Post  Keiju on Mon Jul 11, 2011 7:47 am



The greenjackets had escaped, somehow, and the camp had been in an uproar about it all day. Accusations flew thick and fast everywhere and it was a rare fellow who did not find himself questioned closely about his whereabouts during the evening.

Bright himself was interrogated rather ruthlessly, considering his previous affiliation with the British, and the rough treatment put him in a resentful mood.

Just the sort of mood that usually meant trouble for somebody else. Tonight, 'somebody else' meant the remaining British prisoners. As far as Bright as concerned, they were all in collusion with each other. The snotty bastards. Well. He would have some fun at their expense this evening!

He stalked along the line of doubled sentries, ignoring the wary gazes from his comrades and the glares from the prisoners. These ones did not concern him. Yet. He would bother himself with the women later. For the moment, he was more interested in the sulking group of redcoats.

"You," he said to the nearest sentry as he stopped abruptly and pointed out a redcoat. "Bring that one here."

Despite himself, Bright grinned. "Bite your tongue, idiot, or that one'll take a notion to carve it out. A bit stupid, he is."

Sykes looked up in surprise, "Yeah? Real nice mates you got here." As if he had understood, the soldier shoved him the final few feet and Sykes staggered to recover his balance, sucking in a sharp breath as pain flared in his right side. "Wha's this about, anyway?" he asked, straightening slowly.

"Ain't my fault if the servants is no smarter'n bullocks," Bright told him. "This is 'bout a bitta fun. If you're game fer it."

"Oh, nothin' too special," Bright said airily. "Just a bit of questionin', like. Sure's the grass is green, some'a them know what them damned grasshoppers was 'bout."

Greenjackets. Sykes hadn't felt anything so much as relief when he'd found out they'd run. As far as he was concerned they were well rid of them. "Well. We goin' to stand here talkin' 'bout it or what?"

Nope. "Course not. C'mon."

Those two harpies the officers had taken such an interest in had been Bright's first choice for a little fun, but of course after the previous night's dinner, those same officers were playing greedy with the two. Ah well. There were plenty of others to prey upon.

"Been to see the sawbones again lately?"

Sykes made a face. "Not in a coupla days," he answered, limping after Bright. With each blue-coated figure they passed he kept expecting to hear a challenge, some Froggish snarl that would land him back among the other prisoners, but other than some suspicious glares, they were left alone. "They ain't goin' to give you trouble o'er this?" he asked finally.

"What, them?" Bright shrugged. "Far's they need to know, I'm askin' questions 'bout them grasshoppers gettin' away."

It didn't really surprise him that Montreuil had not bothered himself with Sykes since that first patching-up. The Frog sawbones was half a quack.

A scoff rippled up from Bright's throat. "The Frogs don't know that." He shook his head. "Even if they don't tell us nothin', the findin' out will be interestin'."

It always was. Sykes' grin slipped into a grimace as he stumbled on the uneven ground, but he managed to swallow the string of curses and instead focused on keeping pace with Bright. "How d'you want to go 'bout it?"

"Softly, softly, of course," Bright answered with a smirk. "Ask nice first then twist the knife a bit."

Hopefully the Frog guards wouldn't take it upon themselves to intervene too soon.

Softly? Sykes frowned; he had never been particularly good at softly. Then again, that was about all he could manage at the moment.

"That greenjacket with the busted up knee? He's got a woman who might know somethin'."

"He does indeed." Bright pondered this a moment and decided it was worth the risk. He grinned. "S'pose we'll be payin' her a call, then."

The last he knew, the woman in question was hanging about near the officers' tents. Which meant it could possibly be tricky getting to her. But Bright was good at dealing with 'tricky'.

"Bright! What are you doing around here?" Pelletier spat as the British turncoat came into view, one of his redcoated countrymen in tow. "You come near my fire and I'll cook you on a spit, I swear. I know that was you last night."

Oh. Pelletier. In truth, Bright had forgotten about his mischief of the night before. "Good thing I'm not goin' near your fire, ain't it? Piss off now. I got other business that don't concern you."

He shook his head and briefly pondered the wisdom of telling Pelletier what he could really do with his spit.

"Sometimes." Bright smirked. "Bein' known has its 'vantages."
