The Run

Silver sweat beads trickled down his face, the wet shirt clung to his skin. Hearing them behind him, he manouvered skillfully through the maze-like alleys, jumping over the neihbourhood walls, ducking through gaps in fences. His breath grew louder, almost audible now.

A voice rang in his ears "Run dude, faster!"

It gave him an adrenaline boost. He was running faster than ever. What he didn't see was a small brick in the middle of the lane. And he fell face flat on the bare, cold, lifeless gravel.

******

"Uggghhhh damn! I die again!" Dev shouts in frustration!

  5. Respawn again and again, nice. Though you could stretch the suspense in another sense to make it more goose-bumpy...
