Kaige was out of breath as he rounded the next turn down another random side street, hopelessly lost, but desperate to lose the tail on him. He was bleeding all over the place, was pretty sure he had at least one broken rib, and there were glass shards digging into his feet. He couldn't keep up for much longer and if they caught him.....well he wouldn't think about that. Maybe sneaking into the house of a prominent demon lord to steal some stupid trinkets (especially when he was already wanted for treason) hadn't been his best idea. But chasing him hundreds of miles and through three---maybe four---cities was getting plain ridiculous. Footsteps could now be heard behind him and then a gunshot pierced the air. Thankfully this bullet missed. He spotted an alley out of his corner of his eye and tore towards it. It was a dead end, but there was a fire escape. He climbed to the top as quickly as he and pulled himself to the roof. It didn't take him long to get to the other side of the roof and leap to another. He did that to another roof, then another, and then he misjudged the gap between roofs and fell short. The side of his face hit a window sill as he fell and best-case-scenario he was fairly sure it would be leaving him a lovely black eye. But on the bright side, he did land on a pile of trash bags to break his fall. Kaige didn't stop to mull over it though. He needed to keep moving. He turned down another street (even more lost than before), but stopped when he saw a dim light in a window....he needed to get off the street. He rushed up to the door, put the most charming smile he could manage on his face and rapidly knocked on the door, right before a wave of dizziness overcame him and he collapsed right on the porch.
