Arica struggled back to consciousness after the roaring eruption had thrown her across the room into the opposite wall. She could feel the heat that the explosion had left on her face and due to both the smoke and the damage done to her face and eyes during the blast, she could barely see. Not to mention the fact that the building was now on fire.
She crawled across the floor to where her assistant lay on the ground, clearly dead. She had obviously absorbed most of the blast, otherwise Arica would be dead. Arica looked up. She could already hear the sirens in the distance.
Still unable to walk, she forced her way out into the hallway, where she could hear the screams and confusion of her people. Yes, every case in the lab had been contaminated and the evidence lost or now unusable. In fact, it was probably due to one of those many cases that this had happened. They got threats all the time. If they had just listened to her and granted her proposal to upgrade security from nonexistant to fairly decent... No, now wasn't the time for those thoughts. And some of the classified cases were volatile, at best. The lab they'd rebuild and worry about later. Right now, all that was on Arica's mind was her staff and the students that would have been on their way to the forensics class she taught here. How many people had she lost? And these people, unlike CTU weren't trained for this kind of thing... nor had most other than her experienced any kind of attack or assault. She'd faced enough to be able to keep her cool during this.
"Everybody get out now," she yelled. "Don't worry about anything but each other. The Lab can and will wait." Finally able to stand, she moved beside a body laying in the hall... still breathing. Thank God. It was one of her students. She helped her up and started moving her out of the building.
[Bring in Frank and all at this point if you want... figure they'll get there before Brittany, Mike, or Eric makes it there...]
(and this is terrorist related... if you don't mind me drawing on some real events... Forensic anthros are in demand right now).
