After getting up and making sure Claire was asleep again, he approached the small table across the room, with a duck pen and an inkwell.
Under the table, he collected an old parchment, dating back to his early studies in the Temple, turned it around and began writing on it.
"Claire, I will never forget your words, remember that..."
After about 2 minutes, he finished writing the message for Claire and being careful not to make too much noise, rolled up that piece of parchment, and tucked it into one of the girl's boots.
Disregarding the food and water to take on the road, he sneaked out of the room, tiptoeing, as if he was a thief.
He closed the door very slowly, squinting and without making the slightest noise.
After walking hastily down the dormitory corridor, the Sun's rays finally lit up his face when he arrived in the courtyard, where all his companions were waiting for him near the barn.
