It won't take but a moment to check it; if our man's not there, then we know he'll have either gone up or down the stairs."
"Unless of course he's in one of the water closets..." Artie jerks the door of the men's, then the women's, open in turn, standing back to let Will aim inside.
Will nods and points the gun as each door is opened without a word. Pausing only to mop the sweat from his brow on his shirt sleeve in between.
