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.

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.
