With: John Locke
"Four minutes," she repeated. "I'll hold you to it. Thank you for the codes."
In the past, such a digital handshake would have been seamless, but now she was out of the loop. If there was one thing she missed after her resignation it was the ease of coordinating for big operations with vast resources, though independence did come with its own perks.
"There, that should do it. Everyone on your battle net should be ab--"
Her voice quavered as she was hit with a ping in the back of her head, and instinctively, she tightened her stance as if she was about to enter a fight. Moments later, an aftershock ripped through the ground splitting an already cracked street in half right down the middle. A few soldiers were knocked off balanced before their semi-powered armored kicked in with auto balancing. She made have been on the ground with them, lurching a few steps, but preternatural senses had braced her.
A teetering building groaned, its foundations stressed well past limits, and began to sag toward the ruined street. Jyoti steadied herself and raised a hand, halting its progress. She grit her teeth, feeling as though someone had just dropped a platoon's worth of rucks on top of her. She stretched out her arm and pushed back, gradually setting the building back in place. The foundations whined again as she also straightened out the underlying plasteel frame as a crude fix.
As she manipulated the building, rather than finding it harder to do over time, it turned out to be quite the opposite experience. Looking around, she saw why - several of the marines holding out their gravity field disruptors brought for excavation efforts. With their assistance, she was able to reset the building and its foundations with relative ease. Once her hands hand were untied, she offered them a thumbs up for quick thinking. Despite her power, the Jedi would never take her soldiers for granted.
Soon she was back to frowning. The ground was still volatile, the rescuers being in almost as much danger as the remaining survivors. She was afraid they may end up adding to the number.
