One corridor and two turns later, I had made my way to the emergency exit. For a moment, I considered heading back down, but decided against it. They would be expecting. A goon was all too eager to prove me right, by opening fire at me from below. He couldn't hit anything, of course, not with several layers of metal and an awkward shot between us, but he made my choice much simpler. The only way out was up, through the rooftops. As I climbed up the fire escape, I heard voices, people yelling in terror and people barking orders. I didn't stop to check what was going on: these goons were there for me, and they didn't seem afraid of shooting to kill.
I arrived at the roof barely before a group of Cyberhawks came up through the stairs. I didn't try to fight. Instead, I took a deep breath, raced to the edge, and jumped.
I came down on the other side hard. I stumbled for a moment, but caught myself as bullets started flying. It was a good thing that the sun was high up in the sky already: I couldn't see very far away thanks to it, but neither could the Cyberhawks, and I wasn't aiming at a mobile target. I broke into a run, using antennas and generators as cover. I heard boots hit concrete behind me, as the 'Hawks gave chase. I crossed another roof, then another, then a third. I was getting away, but I couldn't keep this up for long. It had been a long night, and my body was begging for some rest. I had to shake them off, *now*. I stopped for a moment to catch my breath.
 Descend to the streets. Vanish into the crowds.
 Hide inside a building and bide your time until you've recovered. Sweeping all the buildings will take them a while.
 Can't stop now. Keep running until you've left them far behind.
