The day continues on without much talk. But something is bothering you, something Adel had told you back when you first met.
>"Adel, the Noble, he never actually had his way with you before you killed him, did he?"
"What? NO, no no NO! I killed the greasy bugger before he could even touch me."
>"Well thats good to know, you are a virgin then, yes?"
Her face reddens "W-H-what...What does that have to do with anything?!"
>"Answer the question, you remember what the barkeep said about the pregnant women. Are you. A virgin?"
The tone you took was hard, forcing it from her lips "....Yes....My maidenhead remains unclaimed."
She seems hurt, no matter. This is important regarding her safety. Thankfully you wont have any creatures straying onto the road to snatch her away. Small comforts at least.
A few more days pass, and you lose two more guardsmen to misshapes. The first one went to go make water in the night, and stumbled into the woods. The second stumbled on a rock in broad daylight and fell into the open maw, leave the caravan with 7 more guards counting Adel.
She has been holding up far better than the other guards, her and the Caravan leader are impassable as stone, while the guardsmen are slavering at the mouths in fear. Many of them just weep, others don't do anything at all, they just keep their eyes straight ahead, looking at nothing, responding to nothing. Even when around the fire, they don't do anything, just stare.
