The cameras were shattered, and the Lombax guarding it was comatose on the floor. There was the clatter of boots behind her as General Cross charged in."Ginger, what's...Oh." He took in the damage."Well, at least this one's pretty minor." he said, with a sickly grin.Ginger hissed."We don't have time for this s@#$!" she roared, slamming her fist down on a table.
