The surrounding countryside turned into a blur of panting and the thuds of his own feet. He felt his lungs burning and his legs had seized up entirely, they had brought him as far as they were willing. He knew this place, he had been here once before. It was a large bridge, several miles out from the institute, they had driven across it when he had first been committed. He had no idea why his feet had taken him here across the sloping fields. Absent-mindedly picking bits of hedge from his clothes, he spotted a man dangling his legs off the edge of the bridge and whistling tunelessly to himself.
The blackness surrounding him answered his query, it was an odd thing to think about given the lack of time left for him to think at all.

The chair went flying across the room and shattered through the glass pane. He was almost surprised to see it happen. Almost. Gathering speed he burst out of captivity, ducking and weaving between the outstretched arms of security.
