W.W.W. Pt. IICroom, a bone drenching explosion boomed as a bomb carved itself into the old toy factory. Fire plumed an ashen smoke thick into the sky. It began to spread out over and through the cracks in the city, rushing its blast between the buildings. Lavender threw her arms over Alice who ducked into her chest. Shocked and adrenaline shot they shook, huddled together precariously on the concrete edge. Then the wave hit them and they fell hard off the precipice onto the roof.
