I'm stuck on this one point of my plot. My MC has just been chased out of his home by a mob and needs to leave the city fast or they will kill him. To go along with what I have planned later, he needs to get picked up by a slave trader and the trader takes him out of the city. I have no idea why this slave trader would want to take him with him though. I though about having my MC break something of his and he get's taken along to pay the trader back, but that would just cost the trader more in the long run to feed him and such. The wagon is caged to keep the other slaves in, so he can't exactly stow away... To give you an idea of the time period, this is early 1300's Italy, before the Black Plague hits.
