No matter how well she hid, they would always find her. Her breathing was heavy and her legs ached from the chase. She had to think fast. Any minute now, they would (1) catch up with her. She could not outrun them. By the time she made it to the fence, they would have caught her and if they did, there was no hope of keeping the secret.
Looking out at the river, she felt some hope. If she could make it to the ladder in time, she might get high enough and escape (2) unnoticed. She climbed the ladder quickly and quietly with her dark robes as a (3) perfect cover under the pitch dark sky. Finally, she slowed down. The same two men that had tracked her since the beginning, one short and the other impossibly tall, were (4) carefully checking their new surroundings. In no time they had located and (5) directed their attention at their target. They moved fast, climbing with the skill of a spider.
