Bombs were going off all around them. Cadets Jake and Lori felt as if their eardrums were exploding. She wanted to go one way, he wanted to go another. Their team was divided, and their alliance was shaky. Every time they made a move, something blew up in their faces or somewhere nearby. At times they found holes in the ground to hide in, but trouble always found its way into their hiding space. Tired of the confusion, Jake grabbed Lori, uncovering themselves from their protection as they tried to find their way out of the maze of trees. They turned in time to see their newly evacuated hiding hole blown to kingdom come.
