An excerpt from "Crime and Punishment", by Fiódor Dostoiévsky
No one was on the stairs, nor in the gateway. He passed quickly through
the gateway and turned to the left in the street. He knew, he knew perfectly
well that at that moment they were at the flat, that they were greatly astonished
at finding it unlocked, as the door had just been fastened, that by now they
were looking at the bodies, that before another minute had passed they would
guess and completely realize that the murderer had just been there, and had
succeeded in hiding somewhere, slipping by them and escaping. They would guess most likely that he had been in the empty flat, while they were going upstairs. And meanwhile he dared not quicken his pace much, though the next turning was still nearly a hundred yards away.
"Should he slip through some gateway and wait somewhere in an unknown
street? No, hopeless! Should he fling away the axe? Should he take a
cab? Hopeless, hopeless!"
At last he reached the turning. He turned down more dead than alive. Here
he was half way to safety, and here understood it; it was less risky because
there was a great crowd of people, and he was lost in it like a grain of sand.
But all he had suffered had so weakened him that he could scarcely move.
