The bomb had blasted a hole in the side of the building the soldiers were sweeping. It might have been planted. Maybe a suicide bomber avoided the street team. Whatever had happened, the bomb ripped brick and mortar, blood and bone into shards and shrapnel.
Rock lifted himself off of the ground with his one good arm. The other arm dangled almost uselessly at his side. As he labored through the building, Rock tried to ignore the pain his nerves were firing through his body. He knew something really bad was wrong with his arm since he could barely lift it and there was very little feeling coming from it. A tingly, gone-to-sleep sort of feeling. Pain would be better than that.
