Kip asked me not to mention anything to the guards about my stay at his place last night.
That surprised me. I inquired was I in trouble? Or worse yet was he?
He didn’t think so, pending what happened when we got to the gate.
That was another surprise, he accompanied me to the gate.
He went through without a problem and waited for me on the other side.
I passed through after a brief lecture from the head guard and a promise that another such infraction would land me in front of the authorities.
Lyle joked it might be a worthwhile strategy if we can’t locate them on our own.
I introduced Kip all around. He returned before curfew.
