So she didn’t merely hurry, but sprinted, heightening his enjoyment of the game. Behind him, he could hear “Slow down, mon!” from his friend Andrew MacReiver, but Tor ignored the plea. He was too intent on capturing his prey.
The path ended at a wall fronted by a hedge. Still ahead of him, the woman turned, her shoulders set in an attitude of defiance.
