There came a moment when Ivan locked up, and couldn't tell just what had shocked him more: the lamp coming from pretty much nowhere and the shotgun blasting at it, or that Imraan had completely caught him off guard. For just one brief, tension-melting moment, Ivan was sure... absolutely SURE that he dissuaded their hunter once more.

Instead, it was Imraan who had persuaded Ivan to drop his guard and give him the small window of time needed to kill him without resistance. That was all it took - a fraction of a second - for all of his efforts to mean nothing. When he dropped his guard, Ivan had nearly failed Tabi again.

But if there was ever a time to be moping about his failures, this was definitely not it. When the lamp was thrown from out of the corner of his vision, just before Ivan fired, Tabi had screamed for him to run. He didn't need to be told twice.

Reaching for the bag that contained all their supplies (and thus, only chances of survival) with his right hand while handling the gun entirely with his left, Ivan fired a round off and booked it for the door. With the way his arm was shaking, the bullet probably didn't hit Imraan. He wasn't even really aiming at that point. All that bullet had to do was suppress Imraan just long enough to cover his escape through that door and to Tabi.

Run...

Just run, like in one of those stupid Bruce Willis movies Louis likes to watch so much. Run, and let the sound of his heartbeat pounding in his ears be the beat to their escape.

Ivan hadn't quite thought about where he and Tabi would go once they managed to get out of Imraan's line of sight, but he couldn't stop moving. No time to think about what he was going to do next, he just needed to do it. His heel kicked the door to the living room shut as his head turned every which way.

"Where now, Tabi?" he uttered reflexively. Only then did he see the back door...
