Getting out of the hall hadn't been easy.

He hoped so at least.

He went to fetch some supplies, his mind unable to rest until he had done something.

At last, Corinne had put her name down, one of a grand total of seven females - she wasn't surprised.

It was then that she saw Deforreth, acting suspiciously. Two words popped into her head: sabotage and spy.

Time to act.

The End
