Adam and Wee Izzy and JR
Adam stared at the strange suit of armour as it approached, and then realised that he could see JR's face. He nodded at the man's words, having let go of Izzy's hand, and forced himself to keep moving. He got stung again a couple more times, but he was going to reach the wards. He was too stubborn not to. Running was out of the question, but he was still walking.
And then he wasn't, and he dropped to his knees and struggled to draw breath. Was he through the wards? He could not tell.
