Challenge Sedate

Points The Watch

Word Count 100

It was called "Proceeding", a sedate, measured pace. You could keep it up all day. After a while the legs worked themselves and one could concentrate on what your ears and eyes were telling you,

The commander made it a point of pride to do a beat with a rookie watchman. They usually needed advice on proceeding. Without it they wouldn't last the night. Dead tired or dead, floating on the Ankh before the small hours had chance to grow any bigger.

It was a sedate walk except the hour before six. At this time the wise keep well clear.

Lovely!
but would you float on the Ankh or just lie on top of it?

Depending on the seaon and the hight the body fell one could possibly break some bones on it.
