Before she could catch her breath and ask who the hell he was, they were moving. Well he was, her feet weren’t even touching the ground. She merely went along for the ride. Through the crowded floor he ran, holding her as though she was light at a feather. They traveled so fast the wind made her eyes tear. She turned her head and looked behind them. The two goons still followed.
“Everett, my name’s Everett.”
She blinked, stunned. He didn’t even sound out of breath. How was that possible? “Everett, the goons, they’re gaining on us!”
“Then it’s time for us to get out of here, my dear.” He took a hard left and started chanting ‘B42’, ‘B42’, whatever that meant.
She whipped her head back around in time to see him hold out an arm, fire some strange weapon and destroy the empty elevator. But he didn’t stop. He kept going. Right for the hole in the wall.
She gripped his shoulders tight, claws digging in. No. No, he couldn’t be serious. “Everett!”
But he was. He jumped through the hole and right off the edge of the fortieth floor. Straight into certain oblivion.
