A long ramp was placed at the open door of the cargo hold, and slowly, people emerged. They were dressed in soiled, tattered clothes and their hands were bound with rope. Their eyes squinted as they entered the sunlight, seeing it for the first time in weeks. Most of them were men. A few were women. Because there is much money in slaves. Everyone here benefits. Except for the slaves. Xiou answered. Where do they take them, Xiou?
I do not know. Not many do know. Cain and Xiou kept a distance and followed casually, stopping once in a while to inspect some fabrics from Madagascar or some spices from Morocco. They stepped from stall to stall, remaining inconspicuous as they followed the train of slaves down the harbor road. When Cain stopped to inspect some fish, Xiou became uncomfortable.
