Certain Death if you come: Inn

Finding himself in an unknown Inn, Mendez consults the others.
“We’ve done as requested and now this job is almost over. Bodush and Wer, you can both sleep. Thesis, Chen and I will take turns guarding.
I’ll take the first watch, then Thesis, then Chen. Starting at around one in the night, each watch will last three hours. If the hoodies rise early, so much the better for Chen.”
Mendez, though somewhat comforted by the sturdiness of the stone built Inn, that the rooms are above ground level and the windows are barred, still finds a chair and takes up position outside the door of room 7.
“In the morning, when free of this responsibility, we’ll decide what to do.”
Rubbing his still sore shoulder, Mendez hopes that Durin got the message he'd left for him back in Febril.

Thesis turns to Mendez and reminds him that this little tour of duty will be far from over in the morning. We have agreed to accompany these Shady-Characters into the mountains, not just to Gum Dulat .... or did I hear it wrong?

Mendez said...

No, they rudely snubbed Bodush when he offered our help.

(See the last line in the second section of 'In search of a bed'.)

I'm thinking that we've brought them all the way here just to now track them to their mountain cave, where we can kill them and all their f(r)iends!

Had to look up my own post now! :) The job is to escort them into the mountains behind Gom Dalat, so you are still on your way. The escorts you mention was only for errands in Gom Dalat (which they mentioned they need a day for).

My bad.
Trouble is, why do I get the feeling that we'd be blithely walking to our own execution?

I have no idea where you would get that feeling from :D
