Kelvin nodded. "Okay. Sounds good," he said. He was glad Sawyer was making himself useful.
Sawyer nodded back at Kelvin, a bit surprised he didn't raise a stink.
"I'll take a shift too," Miles said. He was secretly hoping to get some time alone with Ben but he doubted Kelvin would allow that.
"Okay." Kelvin looked at him. "You won't be directly guarding Ben though." He had a pretty good idea of what was on Miles' mind and he wanted to nip it in the bud. (He also had to admit that he did have a point about pressing Ben. If he really thought Ben knew much of value he might have gone along with it. Luckily for Ben Kelvin believed he didn't know much about the coming threat.)
"What the hell?" Sawyer replied.
Miles frowned but didn't say anything else.
"Ben isn't our biggest concern right now," Kelvin said. "At least directly. Our biggest issue is keeping the camp safe from anyone coming from the compound." He looked at the group, focusing on Frank, Miles, Daniel, and Charlotte. "We also have to be thinking about your boys from the freighter and what they are going to do when they get here." He thought that was their number one priority.
"Hold up jus' a minute, King Kong," Sawyer interjected. "Ya' jus' said are biggest issue is keepin' the camp safe form anyone comin' from the compound an' they'll be comin' for Ben. So, why the hell wouldn't we be gaurdin' him?"
Kelvin looked at Sawyer. "I never said Ben would be left unguarded," he said. "There will be someone there. We just don't need the majority of our people doing that." He sipped some water.
Sawyer scowled, displeased with Kelvin's reply.
"He is just one person and he can't do anything at the moment. I can't say the same for the people who are coming though. That is why they are the more pressing concern." He realized they did have to keep an eye on Ben but still thought he was pretty much harmless.
"So, what ye'r really saying, Big Foot, is ya don' want me guardin' him."
