Upon entering, I paused for just a moment before setting off, wasting no time. I began to wander the corridors aimlessly, praying there to be no guards behind an unexpected corner. Eventually I found a guard heading away from me as I rounded a corner. I immediately applied the brakes to my momentum, stopping dead in my tracks.
