It wasnít long before the other two guards jogged up, one bearing my coat over his arm. While waiting, neither guard had responded to my questions and I could see nothing though the gates. The coat was welcome when it arrived: we did not get any warmth from fires in the compound, the night was clear of clouds, the crystal clear air cold and bracing.
I was carefully watched, the guards prepared for resistance or flight. Controlling my movements and containing me at the settlement was important to them, the Captain probably saw it as an advantage in future negotiation.
