They don’t ask questions and run towards a ladder standing up against the wall of the college. They have to climb over the railings at the top of the wall but they waste no time and scale the ladder rapidly. Riley and Shearer hold guard at the bottom and climb up last.

Shearer is just over the wall after pulling the ladder up when a swarm of about two hundred gallops around the corner and stops abruptly. The Alpha looks at the barricade ahead and sniffs the air, but the street is empty.

He looks down the next street and can see that it’s blocked also. He almost looks suspicious and backs away before turning to run straight up Grafton Street. Rob peers out the window at the retreating swarm.
