The soldiers offer you the chance to join the camp staff. There is always room in an army for messengers who can run fast, or assistants to the cooks, or assistants to the armourers. You think this will be more exciting than being a merchant. Soldiers can become wealthy because they get a share of the booty or are given land by the king. Perhaps a wealthy soldier will decide to offer you a job? For several days you run errands, polish swords, help prepare the meals. On the third day you hear that the enemy army is marching on the camp.

Do you stay or run?
