You were lucky.
You regain your footing.
In the far corner of the courtyard,
you come across a peculiar bush with branches twisting out from the central stalk, as if in agony.
The leaves are diamond-shaped, with small berries underneath,
flat and tablet-like.
You may take some berries with you on your adventure
and creep further along the wall to the main entrance to the Citadel.
