"Well thanks, I guess", mumbled Unten as he dusted off the dirt from the explosion. He had been hit even as he lept back, but it was nothing aside from a few bruises, and a cut on the upper lip. He licked off the blood. A bunch of people were severely injured, or even dead, it seemed, and only a few had seen it coming. He could hear the Tatooed Man say something like "Fucking morons", then he and Patchwork dashed ahead. After a couple meters, Unten saw the body of Strongman Razin, beaten. "You little asshole", Unten said, and kicked him into the wall, "serves you right". More running. In the far distance ahead, he could see red flaslights, clear signs of the time running out, and behind he could hear water and screams, even more evident. Apparently the Hunter Organization was willing to bury hundreds of people undergroud. And he would be one of them, because he had just wasted 45 goddamn minutes, and he was nowhere near fast enough.
However, if the tunnel ahead were to be shut – would they also shut the supply tunnels? It was his only chance, so he ran towards the next door, focused all his power and tackled it down with his shoulder. He stood on an iron runway on the side of a concrete tube, three meters from the other side. The air was thick with old dust and mold, but once he was inside, a small breeze could be felt from ahead. Unten took this as a good sign, especially as he found a lightswitch, and dim neon-tubes flickered. He could hear rats squeaking as he moved forward.
Two minutes later, he heard something from behind. Had he closed the door? No. No he hadn't. Not good. Clank clonk clank. It was the slender woman he had seen before (clank). She had been extremely quick to react to the explosion, so Unten figured her to be somewhat strong. She had stopped her rpevious hunched way of moving, and run almost elegantly, her long black hair waving behind her like a black silk curtain. She probably had seen him enter the tunnel. Would she attack, or could they just move on?
