H-how did you know my name? Do you know my father? Seeing what was going on, Piper led everyone else out of the room, leaving Aerrow and the woman. When the door shut behind them, she leaned back on her chair.
I havent seen you since you were a baby. You and your father are scarily resembled.
THIS...is scarily...freaky! But...how did you find us?
You love her dont you? The woman changed the subject.
I know everything about you and your friends. Ease up, she likes you too.
If you want answers, look inside your heart. If you hang around and do nothing, youll miss your chance.
How would you know?

You requested me Master Cyclonis. Dark Ace bowed.
Wheres my crystal?
Uh, excuse me?
The crystal I have around my neck, its been missing for days.
Dark Ace knew that he shouldnt speak, that it was a rhetorical question.
Ill find it. But the Storm Hawks got away didnt they? Master Cyclonis carried on.
Not to worry, Ive tracked them, seems to be near terra Cloudia.
Terra Cloudia? Isnt that the terra that is believed to be cursed?
No answer. Dark Ace didnt know what to do, he just had to stand there, and he hated it when that happened.
Leave." She plainly stat...
