Part Three: Heart
Evan's footsteps echoed back to him...his were the only ones.
The storm was quieter under the eves of the allies. The overhanging slate lips of the rooftops cutting a fine line of dry ground on the cement below. Stray cats huddled in the shadows, their pus-rimmed eyes bloodshot, scraggly coats shivering. One of them, a tabby with a healing cut on its shoulder, dropped into an angry crouch, a low growl rising from its throat as a shadow passed over their ally. The tabby's eyes flashed, its starved haunched backing up in retreat. Even a stray cat recognized a greater hunter when it saw one.
Evan took a shuddering breath, wincing as the cold rainwater slid down his back. He was tired. The wind and the rain tugging and bowing at his arms and legs until they were as heavy as bags of sand. His hair was a mess, the fine strands kicked up into an impossible tangle by the twisting eddies of the storm. Lightning flared dully overhead, the thunder sounding in the near distance.
