★ FROM GRACE ★
Cassandra pressed harder, concentrating the energy in her hands to localize and strengthen it—pressurizing it like a thumb on a garden hose. The energy carved into the field a little deeper, though it did not break. “Any day now, Cass,” Tony’s voice came through the earpiece settled into her right ear, impatience and a vague hint of gruffness to his voice.
Gritting her teeth, she resisted the urge to snap. “Aren’t you supposed to be stalling?”
“I'm in the middle of it, pissy pants. Kinda hard when you’re thrown out of your own window.”
“Woe is you.”
The sound of the Iron Man suit’s thrusters echoed into her ear from somewhere in the distance, but she didn’t dare look. Taking a step closer to the machine, she pressed even harder, groaning as the energy from her palms began to burn into her skin. The beam of blue was slowly turning purple, lavender and electricity gradually crawling toward the energy field, but it was not enough. The tip of the machine was whirring now, spinning incomprehensibly fast. Then, a thick beam of pure blue energy shot from the tip, racing toward the sky.
Energy radiated off of it in a strong wave and Cassandra was pushed backward, boots stumbling quickly across the gravel to keep her balance, the beam aimed at the energy field broken entirely. Head tipped back, she watched as the beam connected with the sky. A deep, dark blue and a rich black appeared in the spot they touched, and it began to creep outward with smoke-like wisps, tendrils of energy that opened the sky.
