Nimueh waited until she heard the guards snoring before she used her magick to open the door and slip out. She followed the siege tunnels until she was well away from the castle. She didnt have long before she was missed. She looped back around to the brothel where she put some provisions and the rest of the gold in a pack. She changed to breaches and a tunic before cutting through the forest, disappearing into the shadows.
Morning started with the alarm bell announcing the escape of the prisoner. Sir Kay was summoned to the Queen in her chambers.
"Why is the alarm bell ringing?" Ygraine asked even though she knew the answer.
"It's Nimueh. She escaped. The knights are out searching for her now."
"Did the fae come and spirit her away? Was she not being guarded in the night."
"The guards fell asleep, My Lady." Sir Kay looked at the floor." I will see that they are punished for their incompetence."
"See that you do." Ygraine walked to the window. From there she could see the roof of the brothel. I want that brothel burned to the ground. "Put anyone still living in that house in the cells. Have the Gaius, the physician, check them for magick."
"My Lady, he has magick." Sir Kay reminded her. "Do you think it wise for him to do the tests?"
"He will do them." Ygraine turned from the window. "From this day forward all citizens of Camelot must be registered with the physician. Go do as I ask."
Sir Kay bowed. "Yes My Lady." He hurried away to follow her commands.
Ygraine walked over to her maid. "I need you to do a private errand for me."
"Yes My Lady, whatever you require."
"Take this to the Witchfinder." Ygraine handed her a sealed note. "He lives in Dovetown. Hurry."
The maid bowned and rushed out of the room.
