    1. ... Qa1+ 2.Kxa1 Nb3++ 3.Kb1 Ra1#
    White to play would have a choice of mates which is why the checking sequence is necessary, 1.Qc7+ Ka8 2.Qc8+ Bxc8 3.Rxc8+ or 1.Nxe6+ and on either Nxh2 or Ka8 2.Qc8#.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.
