THE RAIN HAD SUBSIDED to a sprinkle and the thunderstorm had disappeared.
I’d lost count of the number of blocks I’d gone, but the rough weather had been
working for me, keeping people more interested in where they were going than
who they were passing. The change meant it was time to do something about my
disguise. I’d been lucky to have made it so far
but my window had closed.

The loss of
time would hurt but I didn’t see a way
around it.

Gritting my
teeth, I stopped in a mall bathroom. When I looked in the mirror, I wasn’t surprised to see my disguise
had washed away.

I checked over
my shoulder, half expecting a squad of cops to follow me in. Seconds ticked by
while nothing happened. I shook my head and tried to force away my paranoia.
Unfortunately, it did little to lessen the tension I felt in my chest.

used a paper towel to dry the rainwater from my face, wiping off the last
remnants of my disguise. I’d just started on a new one when somebody entered
the bathroom. I hid my face and went as calmly as I could into a stall, acting
like I’d already been headed in that direction.

recognized me?

I half-expected
him to leave without using the facilities. I’d be right behind him if he did.

When he settled
into a stall, I suppressed a sound of exasperation. I had hoped he’d be quick
and leave me alone again in the bathroom.
