“I… I can’t- can’t hold it!” Wanda said, visibly straining with the mental effort of containing the blast.
Suddenly, she dropped to her knees and used all the energy she had left to hurl the fireball into the air, away from the crowded market streets.
But because Wanda had used up the last of her power, as the blast flew away, it resumed its violent expansion.
The force of the explosion was so strong that it ripped into the seventh floor of a nearby hotel. Glass and debris flew everywhere.
Cap didn’t miss a beat. “We need fire and rescue to the north side of the building!” he shouted into his comm. Cap ran into the building, trying to help.
Wanda stared at the destruction, tears welling in her eyes.
