Stern guards in black masks patrol the perimeter of the garden. In a gap between patrols, you hurry to the door. Which of these accursed keys fits which lock?

Success

A match... a turn... a match!

The last key slides home. You are through the door and into...a brick passageway between walls. Another door! No keyhole here. Too stout to smash down, and the guards would hear you anyway. All you can do is knock.


Failure

D__n the things!

The keys are slippery with fog-dew. Your hands tremble. None of them fit! […] you manage to find one that fits the first lock... just as the crunch of boots on gravel signals a returning guard. You bolt back […], losing track of the single key which fit.
