Captured! Part 2, by Rachel S
They took me across the camp, looking around, I saw soldiers in redcoats walking around, talking, sharing a laugh, a few were sitting around a small fire they made, their rifles at their sides. I hesitated but I felt a sharp pain on my arm as he pulled me.
" Hurry," He said in a military manner.
a shiver went down my spine. what would happen to me now? We walked up to a bigger tent. A ramshackle sign said it was the dining hall. He stopped at the entrance and called for someone to come out. An older lady walked out, an apron on, she looked hot, like she was bent over a stove for a long time.
" Ms. Canmore, We have a girl here who'd be of help to you in the kitchen," He said.
Ms. Canmore looked older, weathered face, tall and stern. She looked down at me.
" Whats your name?" She asked.
" Samantha Braxton Ma'am," I said, looking down at my foot that was scuffing a rock on the ground.
" Speak up girl! I can't hear you, look me in the eyes when you speak," She said.
I looked up, into her stern eyes, her brown hair wispy pulled into a bun, she looked tired.
" Samantha Braxton Ma'am," I said a little louder.
Ms. Canmore looked at the soldier, sighed and folded her arms.
" I'll keep her out of trouble, come on Samantha," She said.
The soldier let me go like a hot iron, I felt my arm trying to soothe the pain out of it. But I didn't get any time to think because before I knew it, Ms. Canmore was pushing me inside the tent, telling me what to do in a rushed manner. I was scared.
