Episode 10: Easier To Run
After everyone had had some mending, the group moved onward again. Guy still took the lead, despite being stuck as a cheetah, and Snow was right behind him, albeit supported by Alistair. It was a peculiar situation for the wizard, letting the man she knew was potentially dangerous help her, but she had little choice: there was no way she was letting Parker give her a hand after he was the reason she needed one, and she didn't want to give Artemis the satisfaction of her needing his help. And Guy was a cheetah. That only left Alistair, and as apprehensive as she was about him, she at least had to admit he was very patient with her limited mobility. And eager to help.

"I'll stand in the middle," Alistair piped in before anyone could call him to take the front. He didn't want to be there in the first place and was perfectly alright surrounding himself with other targets.
"And don't look at me," Parker drawled. "I think I've got most of my senses back, but do we really want to test m
