He shook his head, backing up another step. "I d-don't belong to you," he stammered, timid but stubborn. The movement of the rod she carried, slight though it was, prompted a flinch, as though she might use it to wreak some kind of horrible magic on him, but when nothing happened he spoke up again.

"I don't - I don't have any potential, I promise, I can't do anything at all honest so - so there's no point taking me, just let me go home, please let me go home."

He was coming to realize that his words weren't going to have any effect, and he wasn't sure if anyone else was pursuing him - surely they would have caught up by now, if there were - but maybe if he kept talking, kept putting some distance between himself and the woman, he'd have a chance to turn and run, find another route of escape.
