to restrain freedom
  • But Constance was shackled into place.

  • After that it was only a question of tearing out a few stones, prying apart a few boards, chiseling out some mortar, bending the bars of a metal grate enough to squeeze through (that's how I broke my arm), then incapacitating the guards and using their keys to unlock my shackles.
