The dust quickly settles back down and you notice that Rogue is no longer there!


You quickly begin kicking up as much dirt as you can!  Before long, you manage to completely envelop yourself in a choking haze of dust that you cannily use to try to slip into hiding!

The dust settles back down, but not after you manage to inhale a lung full of it!  You stand there, gasping for air, and generally looking pretty silly.
