As Char continued to spar with Vasily, a messenger came along and announced;
“Milord! I bring news!”
“What? Moving out now are we?”
Snarked Char as he approached the Messenger while wiping the sweat off his face.
“Who milord?”
Asked the messenger.
“Oh I see, you ask me a question first before you give the message then, very well, are we moving out now?”
Asked Char as the messenger.
“Where milord?”
Char sighed and asked;
“Are you a Cretin?”
“Yes milord.”
Answered the messenger.
“Just give me the bloody message.”
“Very well milord, we are to move out at 10:00 AM, all soldiers will provide their own transportation.”
Said the Messenger, Char then dismissed him.
“You two, help me take down my tent, if you do, I’ll let you two ride in my wagon.”
Said Char.
“You have a wagon sir?”
“No, but give me a few minutes and I can get one, Baldrick!”
Said Char as he called for the gofer.
“Go call Marrow and Alison, tell them we ride like thunder.”
Said Char as Baldrick saluted and left.

Baldrick wandered a bit before finding Daryl and Vincent, he then waved at them.
“Sir’s Daryl and Vincent, Sir Aznavour told me to tell you we ride like thunder!”
Shouted the private.

Darryl chuckled. "Don't worry I'll cover it." He smiled. He got back into his defensive stance and replied. "Take you best shot." Darryl was ready for whatever the skeleton might throw at him.

"You know I will."

The skeleton said, already thinking about how to get past the wolf's shield. Before he could strike however, Baldrick approached and waved at the two former watchmen. He then quickly told them they were to ride like thunder, and left again.

"Ride like thunder...guess that means we should pack up." Vincent said as he picked up his broken shield, quickly looking at the damage and back at darryl. "Certainly hope there is enough time to repair this."

As Char wandered towards Lord Melchett’s tent, he saw it, a very spacious Wagon, and Clara Darling as busy loading cargo into it.
“Hello Darling, nice wagon you got there.”
“It’s Captain Darling to you!”
Hissed Clara as Char looked on.
“You know, by some extraordinary coincidence, I’m in need of a wagon.”
Said Char as he made himself appear as if he was bored.
“Fat Chance Aznavour! This is Lord Melchett’s Requisitioned Wagon!”
Said Clara as Lord Melchett approached.
“What’s going on here Darling?”
Asked Lord Melchett as he twitched his Moustache.
“Sir, we are in need of a Wagon I’m afraid.”
Said Char as Melchett looked interested.
“I say, give the man a wagon then Darling.”
Said Lord Melchett.
“But sir! This is our— I mean your Wagon!”
Protested Clara.
“But sir, wouldn’t it be more important for the lower rank and file to carry the equipment? If you carry that all by yourself, you could be burdened when the enemy attacks you know...”
Said Char, and with that, the seeds of doubt have been planted.
“You’re right there Aznavour, Darling, let the man have the Wagon.”
Said Melchett as Darling looked Aghast.
“But sir! What about all of your belongings?!”
“I’ll take good care of them Darling.”
Said Char with an unsettling smile on his face.

As soon as Char’s regiment was ready to move out, he came with a Wagon being pulled by his and Baldrick’s horses.
He saw that Geoff and Vasily had already taken down his tent and told them.
“Put it here in the back, and you can ride with me.”
Said Char, the two then hopped on to th back of the wagon with the tent parts.
Char saw Baldrick approaching and immediately told him.
“Sorry Baldrick, but you will have to March with the rest of them.”
“Alright sir, I could lead them.”
“Very well.”
With that, Char looked around to see if Marrow and Alison were around with their horses yet.

Darryl nodded quickly looking over at Baldrick as he waved at them and left. " There's bound to be a blacksmith or two marching with us." He replied. "We'll catch them at camp." He sheathed his sword and picked his own shield up. "You can use mine in the mean time, if you'd like." He suggested to his friend.

"Thank you, but I think I can do without for now." The skeleton said as looked over the damage. On closer inspection only the strap was really damaged...some down time and some leather and it be as good as new. He just hoped they'd have plenty of time to fix it before an actual engagement.

"I'm going to pack this up...I'll see you at the formation."

And with that the skeleton made his way to his belongings, quickly gathering them up and placing them on a horse given to him. Redwood, being too heavy, was placed in a supply cart. Soon the skeleton was ready to march and rode his stead near the front of the regiment to find char.

Darryl nodded curtly as the skeleton left to pack his things. He decided he should do the same, and a few minutes later he had all his things in order. Darryl placed Terrance on his own supply cart and sound a horse himself. He just hoped Charlie could keep up. After a few last minute packing, Darryl met up with the rest of the men and women in their formation, packed and ready to march.

As soon as the entire platoon was assembled, Char shouted, “March!” And they all complied, the platoon passed by Melchett, who was riding on his horse, and Darling, who was forced to walk on foot, she glared hatefully at Char as he just gave her a sly smile and rode off in the Wagon.

The troops have been marching for half the day now.
“Sir? Where is Quirm?”
Asked Baldrick as he continued to march near Marrow, Allison and Char,
“About Turnwise from Ankh-Morpork Baldrick, we just keep heading Turnwise, and we should be there before nightfall Baldrick.”
Said Char.
“Sir, what’s it like in Quirm?”
Asked Vasily as she got behind Char on the Wagon.
“Oh, nothing much, in terms of relations, you could say Quirm is the snobby cousin of Ankh-Morpork.”
“Aren’t you from Quirm sir?”
Asked Baldrick.
“Somewhat Baldrick, my mother came from Quirm, and my father was a businessman in Ankh-Morpork, my mother was of minor nobility, she was a duchess, she married my father for his money.”
Said Char.
“Why would she marry for money if she was a duchess sir?”
Asked Geoff.
“Her family fell on hard times Geoff, and my father just so happened to be the biggest cheese merchant who did dealings in Quirm. He was nicknamed the Big Cheese.” Said Char. “My father took up her last name though as per noble tradition, but I have never actually been to Quirm myself.”
“So do you have any family in Quirm sir?”
Asked Vasily.
“My Grandparents maybe, if they’re still alive, maybe you could all come with me to see them, they were never really fond of my Da, so they probably aren’t fond of me.”
Replied Char.

Darryl listened to Char and Baldrick's conversation, rocking slightly on the back of his horse. "I wouldn't mind some sight seeing. Do you think your grandparents are still around?"" Darryl chimed in.

“From what my mother told me, they are, although my Grandfather apparently had to take a day job as a guard for a war museum.”
Said Char.
“War Museum?”
Asked Geoff.
“Yes, apparently, despite the wars on this part of the disc being rare, everybody always think war machines are fun to look at.”
Replied Char.
“What about your grandmother sir Char?”
Asked Vasily.
“She apparently stays at the family estate there.”
Replied Char.
“Sir, might I ask, is Brawn a type of cheese?”
Asked Baldrick as he continued to trudge along.
“Baldrick, despite Brawn being called head cheese, it isn’t actually a cheese,” said Char, “it’s just meat from the head along with meat jelly put together and peddled as food to people, what brought this question along?”
“Oh, you see sir, since your father is the big cheese, I thought you sell some of those.”
“No we don’t Baldrick, we sell Cheese such as Cheddar, Parmesan, and even Lancre Blue, but we don’t sell Head Cheese, sorry to disappoint.”
Said Char half-annoyed.
“It’s okay sir, do you have any cheese on you now? Its nearly time for tea.”
Said Baldrick
“Baldrick, how would we make tea in the middle of a march?”
Asked Char in disbelief that tea was on Baldrick’s mind at the moment.
“There is a stove here sir.”
Said Vasily as Char craned his neck a bit to look behind him.
“By Blind Io, there is.”
Said Char. “Get my saddle bag Baldrick, I should have some there, Vasily, prepare some hot water and the teabags, we’re having a snack.”
“Hooray!”
Cheered Baldrick.
“Any other questions about Quirm, I can answer them as we move.”
Said Char as he went back to cart steering.
