30 July, Une maison renfoncée

Post  sans nom on Sun Mar 17, 2013 5:02 pm



Charcot cringed at the sound of English voices, even though they were becoming all too familiar by now. "What's he saying, Paol?" he whispered, reassuring himself by taking his friend's arm.

Roux looked up from fidgeting with the buttons on his coat. They had been sitting here for an unfortunate stretch of time.

"What's going on?" he asked.

"Come on, come up, up. Up, up!" Kaufmann was getting tired of this prisoner nonsense. He called to another rifleman nearby. "Burke, speak English to them. I can't."

Paol tried to focus. Several of the greenjackets were moving among the prisoners. The hard, fair one he recognized from their capture, but not the redhead. "I.... dunno. Maybe they're goin' to move us again?"

Without waiting, Kaufmann pulled on the arm of the fellow with the bandaged eyes. "Up on your feet, come on now. It's not that hard."

Charcot yelped.

Paol was on his feet faster than he would have thought possible under the circumstances, grabbing Charcot's arm and pulling him behind him. "Leave him be."

"Hey! You let him alone!" Roux said, lunging at Kaufmann.

"Oi - easy there!" Burke said, grabbing Roux's arms. He frowned at Kaufmann. "Give a lad a chance 'fore ye start tossin' 'em about, aye? Not rightly sure English'll 'elp any'ow."

Kaufmann was about to give the flame-haired Frenchman a strong backhand when Burke pulled him away. "Damn frogs," he grumbled. "At least they're up now." But of course Burke would not understand his German, being one of those 95th fellows. Dammit. He tried some English. "We march them to..." He did not know the word for the abandoned building they were taking the prisoners to. It was not exactly a house. "We march them, yes?"

"Seems t' be th' way o' it." Burke said, letting the short Frenchman go.

Roux pulled away, glaring at both of them.

"What're they saying?" he hissed at Paol.

"What're they doing?" added Charcot, clinging to Paol's arm nervously.

Burke sighed, looking at the French soldiers, and then back at Kaufmann. It was not as though he spoke any French - but they had been ordered to move the prisoners. He was hoping they could do it with as little violence as possible.

"'Ere now, lads," he said. "We're tryin' ter move ye, alright? Marchez. Aye?"

"I don't--" Paol broke off helplessly. He didn't know what they wanted. He didn't know what was happening. He didn't know what to do. His eyes had not left the older man's face, but a sudden flash of recognition among the other soldier's words drew his attention. "Marchez?" he repeated, then to the others, "It's alright, they're just movin' us, I think."

"Again," Roux grumbled. "All the English do."

His voice took on a slightly mimicking quality. "You, Frenchmen, move! Now sit. Now move. Now sit again." He sighed. "I'm getting tired of this."

"Oh." Charcot relaxed marginally, and he began to walk as he felt others around him moving. He grinned at Roux's words. "Maybe they'll put us up in a hotel," he said lightly, attempting a joke. But then a darker idea crossed his mind and, naturally, was voiced aloud. "I hope they're not giving us to the Spanish!"

Post  Brendan Burke on Sun Mar 17, 2013 5:41 pm

Burke let out a sigh of relief that the soldiers seemed to be at least slightly less combative. Hopefully that meant he had gotten the right word, and they would move without a fuss.

He sent a grin at Kaufmann. "See? Not so bad."

"Alright, lads," he said, making a slightly shooing gesture to try to herd the Frenchmen in the right direction. "Marchez."

"Almost like bein' back with the regiment," Paol murmured ruefully, though in truth he didn't much care where they went as long as it took them farther away from those terribly pyres. The smell of burning flesh hung in the sweltering air over the camp, as if the dead were loath to leave the place, gathering around cook fires, old friends, familiar scenes one final time before dawn and the crowing of the cock scattered them to the four winds. If even that could dispel them. Death was powerful here.

Resting a hand on Charcot's shoulder Paol shuffled forward. "They won't turn us over to the Spanish."

Kaufmann thought he recognized a word in the Frenchmen's chatter. Espagnols. "We don't give them to the Spanish?" he asked Burke, looking skeptical. He did not have a very high opinion of the Spanish after their most recent behavior on the battlefield.

"Not rightly sure," Burke said, scratching at his neck. "I were just told ter see 'em moved - not why we're movin' 'em."

He watched the Frenchmen moving, and frowned.

"Why? Ye think the Spanish're takin' 'em?"

"I don't know," Kaufmann replied with a shrug. No one ever bothered explaining their orders to him.



"What are they saying?" Charcot asked Kerjean again. "They keep saying the word 'Spanish,' I'm sure of it."

"Maybe they think we're Spanish," Roux joked, hoping to set his friend's mind at ease. "Not like the English are known for their brains."

Paol forced a laugh. "They're probably just moving us to the town," he said firmly. The town, the Spanish were in the town, that was all. The English soldiers wouldn't just leave them there.

The alternative did not bear thinking about.

"The hell you two on about?" Mittelstaedt grumbled in German, giving one of the prisoners a prod with his rifle. "The Spanish? They takin' this lot off our hands?" He snorted suddenly. "Beaten Frogs is about all that lot can handle."

"Leave 'em be, Mittelstaedt," Kaufmann sighed as his companion prodded the youngest prisoner in the little group, causing him to gasp in alarm. There was no point in causing a scene. "He's that blind one - see his bandage? I was asking Burke if we're giving them to the Spanish. He doesn't know."



Charcot had turned reflexively to see who was prodding him on with the barrel of a rifle, but of course he could not see anything at all. He gripped Kerjean's arm. "Paol, what are they doing? Are there Spanish here?"
