You see a grumpy fellow with a bloody bandage on his head.do you need something else?Gilberto asks.You notice his wound is healing nicely.
I am Gilberto.
job.?I have the night watch at the dock gate.
murderIt must have occurred shortly before I was knocked out.
knockedIt was just about sunrise.I was looking out to the sea.All of a sudden, I felt a blow on the back of mine head. He winces in pain.
painGilberto still seems a little wobbly, but his gesture indicates that he does not desire your aid.My skull is still ringing, but I shall be all right momentarily.
blowThe next thing I knew, I was on the ground.Johnson, the guard for the next watch, was shaking me.I had been out about ten minutes.I knew that because the sun had just peeked over the horizon.And 'The Crown Jewel' had gone and sailed!
Crown JewelDid I forget to say?That is a ship that was docked here all night.I believe it was about to sail for "Britain". You could ask "Gargan the Shipwright" to make sure.Anyway, I did not see "mine attackers", the guard grumbles.
attackers.Hmmm.I wonder if they jumped onto the ship!They could be all the way to "Britain" by now!
GarganHe is a good man but you may not wish to stand too close to him.You may catch something.
shipIf you do want a ship, you must get a deed from the shipwright.You must also have the password to leave town.
passwordWhat is it?
PleaseLong live the kingUhh, I don't know
Blackbird.All right.You may pass.
You do not know the password.The Mayor can give you the proper password.
JohnsonHe takes the morning watch at the dock.
He shrugs.You are asking the wrong man.I suppose they are all right. I have never had trouble with them.
HookThe guard thinks a moment.No. I cannot say that I saw a man with a hook.
Klog.I have not had many dealings with him.
byeGoodbye.Watch your back.
