The she phoenix realizing that they were not far enough from the blast shouted out.
Ignite called it right, for after the explosion of fire and smoke came the shock wave and splintered rocks that flew at high speeds. Unfortunately for Aria, the warning did not reach her on time. A stray rock struck her mask. The mask did deflect the attack but because of the speed the rock was launched it recoiled causing her face to be smashed in and taking Aria down. Once eruption subsided, the she phoenix went to her side and clasped her in her arms.
Hey are you alright? the she phoenix inquired.
Yes im alright, you go on ahead.
But underneath the mask, a trail of blood had made its way from her brow, nose and her swollen cheeks all the way to her chin. The mask was the only thing preventing her from hemorrhaging completely.
