The Archeress, Part 13

_____________________________________
Suspicion  (Part 13 of The Archeress)

She discarded the cloak at the edge of the city.  Her original escape plan had required moving along the river for some miles, but her impromptu camouflage had worked well enough.  Few of the Union’s security forces were aware of the events at the arena, and so she was able to walk out of town unmolested.
As she moved into the gathering dusk, her thoughts returned to her near capture.  It’s possible she could be mistaken about the door, but that did not explain the absence of her escape rope. 
Someone had sabotaged her mission.  And the list was short.
