Emily stepped under the railing, and walked across the grass. The ground rumbled beneath her feet.

"Get out of the way, fool woman!" someone shouted.

Emily didn't seem to hear, and remained where she was. She looked up, and saw three large, brown beasts roar past. Somehow, they hadn't seen her.

Two more began charging towards her, and she turned to face them.

Emily Davison spread her arms out, unfurling a purple banner.

The King's horse was almost upon her.

"Votes for women!" she screamed.

Then her world turned black.
