The friar stood in the centre of the room and was feeling most uncomfortable. Sitting at the table in front of him was the Abbot. Beside the Abbot was the Prior and to the other side, the Mother Superior from the Convent. All three were attempting, but not quite succeeding, not to smirk. The friar stood there before them in purple stained misery.

The Abbot was speaking “Ok, Ok, you mistakenly took a mouthful of this tincture of...”
“ Gentian violet” said the Prior, consulting some notes in front of him.
“Thank you Prior, you mistakenly took a mouthful of this tincture of gentian violet which was given to you for spots on your...what?”
The friar mumbled something.
“What? Speak up man!”
Another mumble.
“What did he say Prior?” asked the Abbot.
The prior whispered in the Abbot's ear. “Oh! Really?”
“And...ah, I see...how...I mean, who...?”
“I'd rather not say” replied the friar.
“You must. You must tell us the name of the woman concerned.” said the Abbot.
The friar stood not talking for what seemed like ages. “Sister Lily White” he said at last.
The Abbot looked at the Prior. The Prior looked at the Abbot. Neither would look at the Mother Superior. Both were looking a little pale.
“Ahem. Well, thank you” said the Abbot “I think as penance you should spend the day polishing the mirrors in the Great Hall and reflecting on your misdemeanors. That will be all.”

It was some hours later that the friar returned to his room and checked his mail.

The friar decided to grab a bite to eat before answering this email. He slipped on his sandals and headed off across the quadrangle. He no longer cared what people thought.

As he turned the corner he saw what looked like the Abbot and the Prior entering the Apothecary's quarters.
