Scene 28

Scene 28

  • Paul and Albert are bathing at the river when Tjaden and Leer join them uninvited.
  • The guys notice some French women across the river and attempt to entice them with their…ability to splash wildly.
  • Tjaden finally gets their attention with the promise of food.
  • A bridge sentry prevents them from swimming over, so the French women say to meet them tonight.
  • Tjaden calls dibs on the blonde, but Paul reminds him all is fair in love and war.
