D'aud was pleased with his warband. They had met the enemy and faced them without flinching. They had even caused several injuries on the Christian warriors, even though, in the end, they had to quit the field of battle. Aban, the Sub-Arif was castigated, however, for fleeing from the Crusader Knight. Jawar has a lingering injury that sometimes keeps him from his duties. Also, Galib had carelessly lost his horse in the battle, and it was too costly to replace. The warband had very few Livres left over after paying upkeep for all of their expenses. D'aud had a solution, however, one that would also allow them to face their enemy yet again. He marshaled his men into position, sending them to surround the Crusader camp site. He reminded them that their objective was to raid the enemies' supplies, but encouraged them to take any opportunities to take out the Crusaders as well.
Sir Charles was uneasy. His men had done well against the Saracen, particularly Marc with his deadly crossbow. Several of his men sported injuries, however, including himself, and he again reprimanded himself for over extending. If he had not chased the fleeing Saracen, he might have seen the Mamluk charging in from the flank. Still, his men all survived and his warband had many Livres left over after paying their expenses. The camp was filled with supplies that could further fund his warband and their crusade against the enemy. Still, something troubled Sir Charles, perhaps intuition, or perhaps he saw some movement from the corner of his eye, or maybe it was even divine inspiration. He called to his men and ordered them into a defensive position, then he waited to see if his inkling was right.
After the battle each side treats their wounded. Sir Charles suffered a wound to the arm that will impede his prowess with the sword. Martin the archer suffers from conditions that require a steady dose of herbs as treatment. Marc the crossbowman suffers an arm wound that prohibits him from using his weapon. Sir Charles decides that Marc should be dismissed to go home to France and spread the word of the work the Crusaders are undertaking. Finally, Father Baptiste suffered a wound to his eye, but he can still read the scriptures, so all is well.
In the Saracen camp, Mundir merely suffers from a flesh wound, he bandages it up himself. Muzna, unhurt from the savage ax attack, reflects upon the battle and how he can become a better warrior like his leader.
