"Do you think that's wise sir." Holly interrupts indignantly.
"We have just been attacked, as you can see, and it would be best if we rested for a night to gather our strength. That is unless the prisoner can tell us of any danger that we are currently threatened with." she says looking at the captured archer.
"We might all be soldiers but we can not be atacked and not have time to rest such as beasts of burden. And I would not even force a beast of burden like this."
"I would prefer to rest myself, but for two things. First, a General outranks a Captain so I have no choice in the matter. Second, we just had the luck to be ambushd-poorly-enough so that we should have set back any efforts to hold the forest ahead against us somewhat. We want to knock them back further. Again, but for the brass, I would be resting anyway."
Pausing, he pulls his axe out towards the prisoner and speaks offhand.
I go and tell Kelen and James if they didn't know, explaining about how John has to follow the orders and how he's as displeased with them as we are.
Then I grudgingly pack up my stuff and help pack up camp muttering about how the general should show his face on the front line so he can know what it's like.

Saiden walks towards James and Holly. His face is burning red. As he looks at the dead bodies around him his face reddens even more. As he reaches them he says while averting his eyes, "You could have woke me!"
"The call to arms went right around camp." I say in response rather indignantly, but my tone changes swiftly to a politely inquisitive one with "Any way how can you sleep for so long? Us elves only need 4 hours meditation a night and yet humans need 8 and still you took longer. How is it that someone can spend so long of the already brief day asleep."
I then glance around, looking at the campsite, and say "Any way, now your up you can help pack up camp, were expecting reinforcements and when they are here were moving on into the woods. But first eat something, it'll be a long march."
