mhm. Yeah, As I leaned from the window, my I was caught by something moving a story below me and somewhat to my left, where I imagined from the lie of the rooms that the windows of the counts own room would look out. The window at which I stood was tall and deep stone mullions, and the weather worn was still complete. I drew back behind the stonework and looked carefully out. What I saw was the count's head coming out from the window. I did not see the face, but I knew the man by the neck and the movement of his back and arms. In any case, I could not mistake the hands which I have had so many opportunities of studying. I was at first interested and somewhat amused, for it is wonderful how smaller matter will interest and amuse a man when he is a prisoner. But my very feelings changed to repulsion and terror when I saw the whole man slowly emerged from the window and begin to crawl down the castle wall over that dreadful abyss, face down with his cloak spreading out around him like great wings. At first I could not believe my eyes. I thought it was some trick of the moonlight, some weird effect of shadow. But I kept looking and it could be no delusion. I saw the fingers and toes grasp the corners of the stones worn clear of the mortar by the stress of years and by thus using every projection and inequality move downwards with considerable speed just as a lizard moves along the wall.
