HER FOOT SLAMMED INTO a puddle and water splashed her jeans, making them cling to her legs. From the brief rain earlier in the evening, many were scattered along the pavement, which made it hard not to land in one. None of that concerned her as she barreled her way through the murky streets.
Thwap thwap thwap went her shoes against pavement.
Kat’s breath came in quick gasps. She ran as fast as her legs could carry her, demanding every last ounce of reserve strength from her muscles. Not a hundred percent sure from what she ran, the fear in her belly urged her to keep going because whatever was behind her was not something that needed to catch up.
