Playing Catch Up

Shortly after that, the exit nearest the parked sports car burst open, and Lisa dashed for Fur, gripping a bookish-looking man with a briefcase by the arm before shoving him in and diving in herself.

“Jim, Sera, run interference for me!” Lisa shouted over the radio as the Lotus shot away, deftly dodging out onto the road. James needed no further instructions. Slamming Sera’s transmission into drive, they peeled out of the parking spot as the white sedan sped off in pursuit.
