Zephyr heard Hiruma and the man emanating the tremendous force. Her hand shook with fear as she reached for the handle. Grasping it, she took in a huge breath, and pushed the door open. She walked in and quickly surveyed the dimly lit room, seeing Hiruma on the ground, beat up. A man towered over him, grinning.
