Chapter 10

"I agree," said the Captain, "It is a perilous time we live in. A man must know who his friends are."

Onesiphorus stood now and leaned over the table, placing his hands on the flat, smooth surface.

"Gentlemen, I believe some things are worth dying for, but more importantly, I believe there are some things definitely worth living for!" He stressed.

"Amen to that," said Captain Antonio, "The good news of salvation must be told and lived!"

"Do you think Michael will come around?" Romy asked.

"The way I see it," said the Captain, "He has no choice."

"How so?" asked Onesiphorus.

"He has been undergoing some dramatic things as of late, and I think he's beginning to understand," explained Captain Antonio.

"What things?" Onesiphorus asked curiously.

"For one, he has never had any friends that have I met. You would be the first he has had any relationship with. He is either here or at home. Every once in a while he will play a game of chess with one of the merchants in the marketplace, but that's about the extent of his existence as I know it," the Captain offered.

"What a sad way to live. No friends; it must make life boring," said Onesiphorus.

Romy was curious how Captain Antonio knew so much about Michael. He wondered if he didn't have all his guards investigated.

"Romy, I can see the Roman soldier in your eyes," the Captain started, "I make it a policy to know the men under my command. It's important that I know what motivates you. That way I can assign duties accordingly. Please do not take offense."
