The strange beam hurtled toward Sakura, but, just before it could strike, a powerful burst of wind struck the beam, knocking it off its course. After bracing herself against the wind, Sakura looked to her right and saw that, as expected, it was Temari who had created the gust, having swung her fan.

Temari said nothing, her mind solely focused on recovering and determining their next step. For a moment, her mind thought back to Hinata and Ino, wondering how much progress they must have made in destroying the pillars.
