3. Release the hounds

Dumbo gasped for breath, he had lost the gun, and his hat. But at least he had lost the voices. For now. Spluttering and coughing he trudged onward through the mud and reeds. Maybe just a little rest?

Rooksby paced up and down in front of the drawing room window. Through the glass he could see multiple guards in blue jackets and shining black boots leading bloodhounds up and down the exercise field."Sir?" Major knocked on the door

"Come in"

"Thompson's dog Alpha has got the scent. The boy headed south, towards the coast"

Rooksby looked up sharply, "The coast? Why would he want to go there?"

"The doctor says he probably just ran in a straight line after he got out of the grounds"

"Of course”

 “Well? What are we to do?”

“What do you mean man? You’re going to follow him and bring him straight back here, without any mistakes this time. I would go with you but I can’t leave the asylum, unless... If I leave Major in charge...”

“Major’s dead sir”

“Oh yes, quite. I had forgotten. In that case if we leave Johnson behind and I bring the hansom... That will do nicely I think”
