“Jack, slow down! There’s no level crossing here!” Ianto yelled as they cut across open land towards the railway tracks. Even the SUV wasn’t robust enough to drive over those at speed without damage.
“But it’s getting away!”
“I know that! But we’ll never catch up if we wreck our only mode of transport, and probably ourselves in the process!”
Reluctantly Jack slowed, turning to follow the tracks until they reached a crossing. “Now we have to pick up its trail again.”
“Look on the bright side; it would be much harder to track if it hadn’t stolen your coat.”
