The other patrons of the Inn make themselves scarce so that you and the girl see nobody else as you move toward the rear door.
The girl follows you cautiously through the Inn, limping in a very ungainly manner as she goes down the stairs between floors. At the rear door she pauses to scan the rear yard of the inn and then moves as quickly as she can to the side gate, past the storage cabins and open yard. As she opens the gate a little, she whistles a bird call which is so good that it's possible she didn't make it at all.
You don't see anything untoward in the street or immediate area; and certainly no guardsmen. After a long pause where the girl stands very still on this side of the gate you hear another bird call from a short distance away, and upon hearing that the girl looks back at you, and then limps into the street toward the other call. The girl is able to slip through the side gate even though her ankle is still painful and the gate is known to stick in a cumbersome manner.
You hear the movement of Grim walking into the corridor, he appears to be loitering to see if trouble starts. A small billy club at his hip, but no malice in his face; unreadable as always.
