It was only a glancing blow, but the fact that it had been attempted at all was what threw Kammy for a loop. She needed a couple of seconds to parse what had happened - Alex had swung for her but Carlon had intervened- ...and then didn't get those seconds.

Alex tore loose from Carlon, seeming to just brush him aside effortlessly. She was hurt, yet it wasn't slowing her down as she closed the short distance with another swing of the crutch. Kam threw up an arm and yelped as the blow caught her in the forearm with a resounding crack, jarring her, sending her stumbling back a step from the force of it. Christ her arm.

Kam tried to duck away to her right, and-THWACK- stars exploded in front of her eyes as it caught her on the front of the head, just below the hairline so hard that Kammy thought that she was going to throw up.
