Eberardo chased Lajos. The other man stopped to help a fallen woman and Eberardo tackled him. “Lajos! You live!”
Lajos returned his embrace, then pulled the woman to her feet. She fled wordlessly.
“Come on!” said Lajos, turning to follow.
“Wait,” said Eberardo, pointing at the massive Ring.
It sparked dangerously. The bombers bore down. Eberardo saw black shapes drop from their undersides. Lajos pulled but Eberardo held him fast. “Look,” he gasped.
The Ring came alive and the field of lightning reached out. It engulfed the bombers and the bombs. A flash of lightning later, the sky was clear.
