You scramble near-silently over the roof and in through an attic window.

[…] Feet on the stairs! […] You slip out and examine your prize, perched on the roof in the moonish light while cats yowl in the alley below. It's a scrap of canvas in a box. It looks like it was cut from a painting. You don't recognise it. […]

Description summary:
The room is narrow and almost empty. You find a fragment of a painting in box and a stain of dried blood on the wall. When you hear footsteps you flee, taking the fragment with you.

You scramble near-silently over the roof and dislodge a tile.

The tile falls spinning through space and shatters far below. There is a terrified yelp that suggests a near miss. You disappear hastily into the night.
