2998 Themes and Motifs Arrivals/Departures Slipping out at night

I needed a way to convey characters who secretly leave at night for some reason - Miss Quentin in S&F, but there is also Lena Grove and Joe Christmas in Light in August and probably others. Perhaps this could/should be a recurring trope? -JBP
