Finish the story begins with: “The A&B Building was made entirely from driftwood.” Why driftwood some of the prisoners thought.
The command was: Pick up as many straight, strong driftwood as you could find.
The prisoners were in groups of four, chained together by their feet. How could they work and find wood like that?
Suddenly one group found a long piece of wood. Between the four of them they carried it to the wagon. Before they dropped it into the wagon, they whipped around and killed their guard. They quickly grabbed the keys from the wagon, unlocked their chains and ran off.
In vain! A whole garrison of soldiers, who were camping nearby, chased and caught them all.
The four were locked up in lonely detention for thirty days.
The remaining prisoners kept on collecting more driftwood to finish off the huge backside of the A&B Building.
