A loud scream coupled with intense pain awoke Shane from her resting spot on the floor. Had she really fallen asleep finally? Shaking her head groggily Shane tried to remember the last few hours. What was the pain she felt, she wondered as she began pushing debris off of her.
It all began coming back to her as she regained her senses. Aaron had disapeared, they had come here in hopes of...Shane didn't really no why they had come here but she trusted Claire to lead them in the right direction. Claire! It was Claire who had caused the shock wave that had knocked her out, it was Claire that had screamed...
FUCK. Bear was dead.
Shane remembered it all as she tried to stand, the ringing of the alarms causing her head to pound even harder than it had been before she was knocked out. As she took in the scene around her the only thing that came to mind was total devestation. The floors and walls had literally been ripped to pieces, she could not see half of her team members anywhere and most of the ones she could see were in just as bad of shape, if not worse than Shane herself was. Shane needed to find a way to silence the alarms or at least make the ringing in her ears stop so she could think. That's when she saw Kristy moving towards the door and within seconds Shane stood up, trying to feel her legs under her again. Step by painful step she followed Kristy's footsteps towards the door that would lead outside, away from the wreckage and into fresh air. Then suddenly Shane froze in her tracks.
They were wanted which meant the alarms probably were indicating to them that the perimeter had been breached. Just as Shane was about to scream to Kristy to stop, Kristy swung the door open and stepped outside, the sound of guns along with the brightness of day flickering through the doorway and temporarily stunning Shane all over again.
“Place your hands on your head and face the wall,”
Shane shook her head hard, focusing...guns..locked and loaded and Kristy was outside by herself. Think Shane, think, the words went over in her mind and a split second later Shane knew what she had to do.
And she knew it could well cost her her own life but the sacrifice of one was nothing compared to all of her friends possibly dying now. Shane walked towards the door, her hands stretched out in front of her, her only thought being that she hoped and prayed Bakets healing powers were enough to at least keep her alive even if she couldn't reverse the damage she knew would happen to her person. The closer that she got to the door the more intense the searing pain in her hands became but Shane pressed forward as she yelled over her shoulder, hoping that everyone left alive would or could even focus enough to realize what was about to happen "It's now or never, do or die we go, NOW!"
With that a blast of fire flew from Shane's fingertips, engulfing the surrounding police officers and SWAT team in a circle of flame. Shane pushed forward, the fire moving further up her hands and onto her body until Shane almost looked liked a fiery phoenix once again risen from the ash. The searing heat was so intense Shane felt her strength along with her resolve beginning to crumble. "Hurry!" Shane screamed, as she began to topple backwards, then regained her footing "Go, get out of here GO!"
A few seconds later the cruisers and SWAT truck burst into flames allowing the group the break they needed to get the hell out of there.
Shane was now engulfed in her own flames, her body severely burned and almost collapsing to the ground as the flames began to die down, Shane moaning out in pain "Go...leave me, save yourselves. GO!"
