You turn to face the person.  You see nothing in the shadows, then a face emerges, and a tall slender man clad in black steps out.  He has a glistening dagger in his left hand and is staring at you with a look of torment in his eye.  He draws a breath and lets the dagger clatter to the stone floor.

"I'm sorry," he says, "I was so wrong."  He stands there, staring at you, then seems to make a decision.  "I was sent here to kill you but--I can't.  They will send someone else if I do not succeed.  You must come with me to find sanctuary!  It is the only way."

You hesitate.  Can you trust him?  This may be a trap.
