Swamped Chapter 20 Page 6

You pull out your slicer. You can do this. Catch him by surprise, like you did with Corvus…

Your legs freeze up. No, that’s not going to work. You’ve heard enough of his reputation; Razor’s one of the best fighters in the Marshguards. Even if you surprise him, you’ve got no hope in a fight.

You barely pull yourself together enough to realize what he just said – that this passage leads to Rider’s quarters. Maybe if you can make it there first… well, you don’t know the next part of the plan, but at least you can hide.

You run into the darkness. You don’t know if you heard Razor open the passage behind you, and you’re not about to look back to find out.

You run and you run, not thinking about the noise you’re making or what you might be stepping in. You just move on, until you hit a wall.

You can see the hinges on this side. You slip in.

This must be Rider’s room, though it’s hard to tell at a glance. It seems a fairly ordinary room from what you can see – though perhaps this is what passes for high-quality in the Marshguards.

Now that you’re here, what are you going to do?
