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 their attack. 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. TBC? [And you wondered just *why* Doppler's local representatives were passing up such an opportunity... ^_^]
