“I will free you from your prison shortly, so please move away from the
Once the three had moved away, I swing my sword twice. Several iron bars
fall to the ground with a crash.
“Thank you for your assistance. We are most appreciative.” Carlos
“I just happened to be in the area on assignment.” Pat
“No, I must report your actions properly to my lord.” Carlos
“But I was only carrying out my duty.” Pat
“Did you say your family name was Riggsby?” Carlos
Right, I’m not a noted member of my family, I’m basically disowned.
“Yes, the Riggsby family, I’m afraid to say. My name is Patrick, the third
son. Well, the family cut ties with me, so no consideration needs to be
paid to them.” Pat

“Then, I will just thank Patrick, who is here now.” Carlos

“If Patrick does not receive some gratitude from the Marquis family, it

I can’t keep refusing, any further would be rude.
“I understand, for the moment, let’s get moving.” Pat concedes with a bow
“Ok, let’s get back to the road! We’ll confiscate their weapons and plunder, so
pack it up to carry it back. Wayne take charge of the packing!” Pat
“Understood, Second Lieutenant Patrick!” Wayne
It seems that we’re both a little overly formal in front of a Marquis family
member, I flashed a cheeky grin at Wayne.
