Conrad's Fate

  There's a scene in CF where Christopher and Conrad are in the library 
and Christopher gets cramp in his leg. Conrad straightens the leg out.

I have been trying to work out the point of  this scene. From a plot 
point of view, the cramp keeps them in the same place so they can 
overhear an important conversation taking place in the library, but that 
seems a rather thin plot device for DWJ. Her plots are tightly 
constructed and incidents usually have more point than that. It gives 
Conrad a chance to help Christopher in a crisis and demonstrate that he 
is competent and shows that Christopher is not all-powerful, but this 
also seems rather thin.

Am I missing something?
