Falling Back on Instinct

The shaking of the ground roused Christine from her peaceful slumber.

"Earthquake!" the old wizard yelled.

She had trained for many situations, but this was not one of them. Therefore, she fell back on her instincts: the care and protection of others.

She grabbed her hammer and shield. As the items filled her hands, she felt a small degree of comfort return to her, even though there was nothing they could do to help her.

She ran to the others still asleep, shaking them and warning them of the impending danger.
