Aric's half a kilometer away, and I seriously doubt your character can sprint five hundred meters up hill in just a few seconds. The fastest man on Earth can sprint 0.5K in a full minute, and that's when he's not
exhausted, malnutrition-ed, and wearing heavy combat gear.
The situation between Cole and Dr. Insano (
) will resolve itself long before either you or Ghost can reach them, for better or worse.
EDIT: Also, is your space bar broken or something? You don't seem very fond of 'em.
