Walk Twenty Run Twenty

by Garry Disher

Rick’s cousins are two specks floating on the horizon, leaving him far behind on the treacherous bush track. He looks at his punctured tyres in dismay. Ten kilometres. If he walks, he’ll be too late to save them. If he runs, he’ll expire in the heat. But now is no time to hesitate…Ian and Nina are depending on him. Then the voice of his dead father comes back to him: ‘Don’t use up all your energy at once. Walk twenty, run twenty.’
