Nine-toes and Brother Paul both rush into the warehouse, seeing the second of two thugs climbing up a ladder onto the second floor. It takes little time for the monks to follow, Brother Paul leading the way. As Nine-toes reaches the second floor, however, the two men separate. One, on the right, is running the length of the warehouse for a far shuttered window; the other dives out a window on the left.

And with that, Brother Paul speeds away.
