...just as the building next to the Dojo exploded. Which understandably
brought Oz up short, for a bit. It only took a moment for him and the
other Rockets to figure that this was some kind of spontaneous aid to
the chaos they were about to incur, though, so they quickly resumed
No one noticed a few grey-clad figures amidst the grey smoke, sorting
through the rubble for something they knew would survive, but which
would not be missed from a total loss.
Inside the Dojo, Laura's body slowly informed her that the Master had
just barely snatched her out of the way of a half-ton chunk of
sheetrock that now carpeted the walkway she had recently been on.
Fortunately, only Solon had actually been hit by any significant debris
(and even he was merely concussed), although there were many close
calls. Robert, for one, looked cross-eyed at a piece of rebar that had
landed between his knees, though Rilli seemed to be slightly more
frightened at what had almost happened. Two pieces of rock that had
been one upon entrance to the Dojo formed a tent over Gads, with
Monk-chan's perfectly timed fist at the apex. All in all, things could
have been much worse.
And then they were.
