As written in Chains

He pushed ahead. I tried to follow. We hurried past the biggest house I had ever seen, past shops and taverns and manufactories, past city folk walking like their shoes were on fire. But I could not move fast enough, and I was losing sight of him in the crowd.

Rewritten version

My new-found friend walked ahead of me. I did my best to keep up. As we rushed by the largest home I had ever seen, we also passed shops, taverns, and factories, and past people that were walking so fast that they were almost running. Even though I tried, I could not keep up and I started to lose him in the fast-paced crowd.
