Back at the tavern, we plotted about how to rescue the maester. My indifference leaked through in our conversation, and Dolins and Teddy retorted that the maester was someone important and necessary. Not to my goals, but I suppose they don't need to know that. I will continue to look for rungs to climb. We agree to a plan by morning, and fall asleep at the inn as sun begins to rise.
The three of us head towards the castle together, and once I was sure the bard and lordling were well out of sight, I spun on my heels and headed back towards town. I am unwilling to put my own life at risk because of the foolishness of those who started this mission. I'll meet the rest of House Jasper at the tavern, as we had agreed upon, and tell them I got turned around by guards before I even made it to the door when they return by morning.
