It was a race to the train. He was moving fast in his good suit. The clogs of brown brogues didn't help, but the runner made the train in time all the same.

The commuter passed out a good few of the younger runners in their flats and flapping coats. The gallop to the train didn't faze him. He was breathing as easy as a baby in the cot.

The Dart was packed with people on their way to work. And the runner was the oldest worker in the carriage. He was about 50 plus Vat, I would say.
