So when he reached the crisp open air after squeezing through the window he entered in to find that his spotter and his getaway vehicle were both gone, well it was almost a relief.
And time! 2 minutes 12 seconds, a new record. I almost continued, but then… I’m writing a book for publication. So it’s time to do that.
