Cyclonis had only just managed to stop herself falling through the trees, and floated towards ground in a nimbus of crystal light, glaring upwards at the familiar shape of the Condor. A noise behind her made her spin round. There was a figure dragging itself out of the bushes behind her, dressed in red and green rags and shards of metal plating. It coughed. "Dark Ace."
" Muh?" He looked up at her muzzily, propped up on an elbow. His eyes were unfocused, the mechanical wings hanging from his back like a broken umbrella. His right arm was a bloody mess, but he didn't seem to have noticed. She snarled at him. "Get up, you idiot!"
"I said, get up!" He planted his hands on the ground and started to push himself up, then seemed to forget all about it and became very interested in a piece of moss on the ground. "Dark Ace!" Dark Ace looked at her again, before his gaze slid past her to focus on a squirrel as it leapt among the branche

Junko had been out for less than 5 minutes before Finn made his customary landing on the windscreen of his skimmer. He groaned, clinging to the headlights. " I thought that might have stopped happening by now," he whimpered, scrambling over the windscreen and seating himself on the crystal converters. "What's that?"
Something had exploded from the Condor, moving in a nimbus of golden, hazy light, and it was making straight for them. "What ?"
"I don't know, but it's coming straight at us, man!" Finn shoved Junko to the side and threw the skimmer into a dive, just as a blurred black and white shape roared past them, screaming gleefully. "LOOK OUT, PEOPLE, IT'S ABOUT TO KICK OFF-AAAAI!" The skimmer ploughed onwards, swerving between mutant Cyclonians and sky knight squadrons alike, bolts of white hot energy erupting from all sides. Finn squinted. "Is that Magpie?"
"Um so to speak " Stork replied over the intercom, sounding somewhat dazed. "I

A terrible roar split the skies, thundering over even the boom of the cannons and the sizzle of crystal weaponry, and Aura put her hands over her ears. "What is that?!"
"I think you might want to take a look over there ?" Wyng hovered near her on his chopper, pointing with a shaking finger towards the distant mountain. Something was coming towards them, like a hive of bees, only angrier. "What are they?" A voice answered her over the intercom. "They're nothing, not anymore Cyclonis has finally completed her plans "
"Torren, no conspiracy theories now please, just the short version?!" Aura snapped, and the intercom was silent for a while before saying, "They're swallowed those lunar crystals. Unrefined."
"What, but ?!" Aura yelped as a blur of yellow light burned past her. She smelt burning rubber from her tyres. "They'd be no better than beasts!"
"Like the were-eagles, only were-Cyclonians " mumbled Torren, obviously losing it grad

Magpie gripped the handlebars so tight that her knuckles whitened to the colour of bone and the skimmer screamed upwards. There was chaos. The Swift was taking serious fire, and heeling dangerously to one side. The Condor, to Stork's utter horror, was shielding the listing side, firing rapidly into the Cyclonian forces. He squealed. "WHO IS DRIVING MY SHIP?!"
"AAARGH!" Something huge and on fire whirled by them, and the skimmer performed a nasty barrel roll before Magpie managed to right it. A red energy bolt hit the wing as she did, and she swerved to the right. "I DON'T THINK YOU'RE FIT TO DRIVE!"
"ME NEITHER, DO YOU WANT A TURN?!" Magpie roared, twisting and turning on the skimmer as more bolts shot past them. She had no idea what was happening, all she knew was that she was furious, and he wasn't making it any better all this screaming and wailing and complaining She wrenched back the throttle for a burst of speed, and a familiar shape hummed close

Aerrow leapt onto his skimmer, Radarr right behind him, just as the rest of the squad jumped onto their own rides. Magpies is gone! cried Piper, and Finn glanced round. Can you hear that?
A distant screaming echoed down the passageway, accompanied by the roar of an engine and a cloud of dust rose into view. Is it Cyclonians?! Finn panicked. Piper shrieked as a red and black shape shot past them. CANT TALK GOT TO GET OUT TO HELP THE TEAM! bellowed Magpie they only just heard her over the demented screaming of Stork. Radarr looked over at Aerrow. They must be concentrating their fire on the carriers!
The Condor! cried Finn, as the three skimmers swerved round and shot after Magpie and Stork.
Daylight erupted around them as they emerged from the tunnel, now ringing with the sounds of Cyclonian skimmers. Aerrow skidded to a stop beside Magpie. Are you okay? Where did th

I dont like this
Well it was convenient, alright? Lets not ask questions.
But Aerrow! Have you even known the Cyclonians to just let us go like this?!
They didnt let us go, replied Aerrow, straightening up from the edge of the door he was watching. Their locking system failed. Someone probably fiddled with the defenses around the mountain and thats tied in with these cells probably.
Heh, some idiot Talon, sniggered Finn, Cyclonis just lets anyone work for her, doesnt she?
Quiet! Aerrow poked his head round the door again. Okay, its just a corridor. I think we can sneak as far as that bulkhead there. Our weapons are sitting just there on that chest.
Another stupid Talon! giggled Finn with glee. This is too easy!
Please dont say that! whispered

Master Cyclonis stood at the very end of the mine, staring intensely at the wall, silent. Not far from her was Magpies skimmer. Odd though it was, she had requested that it be brought before her and examined she knew that the merb was a genius and wanted to try and absorb that knowledge.
This had better be worth my effort of speaking, she growled, and the Cyclonian snapped to attention. There is a small force of skimmers trying to attack outside the sentries have spotted at least three skimmers and a carrier, and they suspect that it is a sky knight squadron they seem hostile.
Send out the Talons theyll never get past the defences. Not without that merb, anyway.
Very well, Master. The Cyclonian left, and Cyclonis continued her staring. It was true without the merb, the genius behind the defences and blockading crystals, they would not be able to

Aerrow let go of the bars of the cell and flopped backwards miserably. This was embarrassing why hadnt they noticed the Cyclonians sooner? It wasnt like they were especially subtle or anything and what would they want with lunar crystals anyway? They had more than enough power at their disposal, a few lunar absorbing crystals wouldnt help them much and most importantly, why had they been separated from Magpie?
Piper paced the small cell they were in anxiously. I cant believe this! Poor Magpie! Her first day with us and we walk straight into the Cyclonians! And we were supposed to keep her away from them!
Dude, we were expected to stay out of the Dark Aces way for a whole week? Finn said in disbelief, Thats just silly.
I wish Junko were here hed be able to bust us out of here in no time! Piper yelled, kicking the bars. We have to think of somethi

Aura walked down the long hallways that ran down the centre of the Swallows carrier. We only have five cabins, and Magpie said that you could have hers while you were here, Junko.
Thats was nice of her, grinned Junko, following her. Aura laughed nervously and pushed open a door to her left. Er, its a little while to where were going, so you can chill out in here if you want.
Watch out for the Thing! yelled Wyng from the bridge, where he was still eating biscuits. Junko glanced quickly at Aura. Whats the Thing?
Oh er Aura rubbed the back of her neck. Its, er nothing really, Magpie thinks it lives under her bed
No, no, its nothing! Probably just a squirrel or something! Aura panicked. Why was Magpie such a slob?! It wont eat you!
