'You are free to come and go as you please' Andrew told him. 'As long as you return here every night, and keep yourself safe. There are watchmen all over this area.'

'Watchmen?' Cam echoed.

'They are here for all of our protection' Andrew said to him. 'We hold many illegal people here, foreigners and so called traitors and heathens, the council would kill them all if they were found. As long as you don't wander too far' he said to Cam, 'you will be safe under their watch. The watchmen never sleep. Day and night this place is guarded.'

'Oh' Cam mumbled.

'Go' Andrew encouraged. 'Go to the gardens and speak to this woman, if you have the courage.'

Cam opened his mouth to say something, to protest maybe, but couldn't think of anything to say, so shut it again.

'Don't think I don't know' Andrew grinned at him in amusement. 'I have eyes and ears you know. Now go, go find this woman.'

Cam left the room, trailing out of the building and out into the gardens.

It felt strange to be free again, to be truly free. There were no worries for him now, and he felt safe with others watching over him, and…and….

Cam took a deep breath.

Brioke was long gone. The memories and the pain he had caused him were a thing of the past.

He can't hurt me anymore… Cam thought to himself, and as he did, Cam began to feel something, a foreign emotion.

It was happiness, and hope.

It felt good.

Cam wandered through the garden for a long while, until he found what he was looking for.

From a distance he saw Lu

om. She ignored the strangled cry, the sound of swords singing, and what sounded like a body falling to the floor.

She followed after her daughter Lucy as they climbed through the window, escaping the soldiers who sought to murder them.

Vincent who remained in the room rounded on them, drawing his weapon to bide time for his family as they escaped.

As Dee clambered through the window, she turned to glance back at the room; jerking her head back just in time as one of the soldiers fired a crossbow at her, missing her by inches. She stumbled, falling out of the window and onto the roof just feet below. Lucy reached out to grab her as she scrambled to her feet, running after Daniel and Roland who led the way.

'Where are they?!' Roland called back at his mother.

'No!' she only called back with tears in her eyes.

Roland turned his head away, facing ahead again and gritting his teeth.

Crossbow bolts bounced off the tiles around them. Daniel stumbled suddenly, crying out in pain as one hit him.
