The cook seems perturbed and suggests you accompany him as he investigates. He picks up a heavy poker from by the fire and leads you along the short corridor to the stairs. At the top of the stairs there is a corridor to match the one below, with doors on either side. The cook beckons you to follow, indicates the first door on the left. He suggests you merely knock and enter: as a guest your presence would cause no offense.
Do you agree with him and knock?
Do you disagree and insist on him entering first?
