Dillon, who was trying to fly beside the helicopter but his wings were very weak and seemed to be fading away
"Excuse me?" he called over to Tomoya after getting inside the Helicopter.
"I have similar angel powers, I literally blasted a plane with black lightning."
then his wings faded away completely.
"The power isn't gone, I'm just really tired, I need something to power back up and if that ship is what I think it is, then it'll work, also I'll be able to pilot that airship."
"Bit of a problem, the only people who know the ship are the ones who were on it when it sank and the men at Manor Rugal, so thats a dead end unless we want to let Rugal know what were doing..."
Matt saw Rugal's soul and quickly drew his revolver and walked up to him. "Well if death is what you want, I'll gladly help you," Matt said before putting a .50 caliber round in both his arms and legs. "The thing is I won't be giving it to you," he said as he dragged the soul to the entrance of the cave. "The demons will," was all he said before pushing the soul over the edge to be sent tumbling down the side of the mountain. Rugal's soul eventually came to a complete stop at the foot of the mountain but also at the feet of a pack of demons. "So what's the plan," Matt said when he turned back to the group.
Angelus stretched her wings for a moment, and then bent down; "There isn't one, but we should be leaving this mountain. Those demons make me feel rather uneasy..."
Caim nodded, "Agreed" and began to climb on the dragon's back. He motioned Matt to join them.
"I'll come with you guys but we're basically leaving the most defendable spot on the whole island," Matt said as climbed on top of the dragon. Once in position, Matt got out his TAR-21. It would be useful in case flying demons decided to chase them. "What's our destination?" Matt asked as he checked that his gun was in working order.
Tomoya nodded at Phoenix and Dillon who had just got in, "Okay then, I shall try to fly this thing...." Tomoya said as he started to lift the control stick backwards. As the Helicopter started to lift off the ground a storm started to whip up and the wind started to pick up as well.
"Don't worry, it's just a bit of wind, Im sure it'll go away shortly..." Tomoya said as he peered over into the distance, he saw a spec of the airship they were heading towards, as Tomoya pushed the stick down to start the traveling, "Don't worry, I'm sure that there will be a power supply at the airship to recharge Dillon, too bad you can't recharge from the clouds..." He smirked.
"Wait...We are just going to land and let Dillon take power from that ship, the same power used to keep it in the air?..." Phoenix asked in a concerned manner.
SomeWhere in Europe
Kazuya Was meeting with the other members of the Cartel Via Video Conference.
"Gentlemen...Our days are numbered...we all know that, so we can sink with the ship...or leave while the going is good...Tech: Your Answer?..."
"Doom Doesn't Answer to you!
"Victor...just answer the damn question...
"Grrrrr...your time will come Albert...Very Well, Kazuya, Doom is in...
"You have the full support of Tri-Cell and Yours Truely..."
"And that just leaves you, Dictator..."
"As much I hate to say...I agree, Shadowlaw only stands to lose if we maintain links with Rugal...
"Good...I Leave for BlackNoah in the Morning, If I come back, then you know what to do...until next time..."
And with that Kazuya shut down the feed and set out.
"Well shit, you do have a point there...I was experienced enough to absorb energy cells that were linked to places that weren't being used...such as the emergency thruster...but they didn't miss that power for some while...also I have been on this ship before, so if he absorbs a little bit of energy from cells we don't need, hopefully we won't die..." Tomoya hummed as he started to fiddle with the helicopter radio.
I'm sure Ryan won't mind me taking his ship...I wonder what has happened to the old crew? he questioned himself.
"Oh good, Hate to die before we get to the Clone Armies..." Phoenix sighed.
"Sooooo What is the deal with you and Dillon Anyways? you guys are Angels, right?..."
Tomoya looked at Phoenix then quickly turned to the front again, "Well I don't know about Dillon but once a long, long, long, time ago I was a human sent to this dimension for some strange reason, I guess now it was a higher powers, I met up with the heroes and fought evil and we flew around in that airship, at one stage we had to get these power stones, I went after the light stone and that granted me the power to ascend into angel-hood but the lightning element chose me to become it's guardian and so I became an Arch-Angel...aah, good times" Tomoya said in a huff before remembering in the before times.
"Also...I dont' know about Dillon, what are you anyway Dillon, A fallen Angel, just a man who got angel powers...what?" Tomoya questioned Dillon with hidden anger in his eyes, "Because I will have to take everything away that relates with the higher ups, including all powers and non-exiting technology yet...when this is all over...well it depends if the war tears into this world or if we just get screwed by letting the clones get lose...if everything turns to crap I have backup...that will be a pain in the ass to write up about..." he fumed.
"Anywhere. However, keep in mind that as I fly, we need to be on the lookout for this titan."
"Wow...Never thought I would see the day or never play a part in the battle between good and evil, Hell, I'm just a Defence Attorney, I never wanted all this, I just wanted to make sure that justice was served...Not defending people going down the River Styx..." Phoenix Sighed.
"If only I dodn't take up that case..."
Dillon was nervous.
"Well, remember back when I went crazy? well just before I fled I had drained a lot of energy from the batteries Rugal was using to store the power he drained from you."
"You stole from Rugal?" asked Phoenix
Dillon laughed at that.
"It's not really stealing, Rugal had forcibly drained it from Tomoya. later I had drained a lot of electricity, and it seems to have given me power equal to Tomoya.
Tomoya I'm so sorry I stole that power, but you never asked for it back so I held on to it, I assumed you didn't care.
But as for technology, I'm afraid that might not work out the way you want it, see this,"
he held up the golden iPod. "This doesn't exist but it's mine nonetheless."
they soon arrived at the airship.
"also don't worry about me draining the power cells, there's a clinic that can restore energy, Ryan used it when he was drained from over using his storm flames.
Dillon then walked to the medical clinic, knowing exactly where it was.
Phoenix got out of the helicopter and started to make his way to the showers, The Mud and sweat on his suit was beginning to stink.
On the way there, he came across a Map of the world.
He then began tracking down the last known location of the BlackNoah using the Data from the Factory.
When he got onto the airship, Sonic immediately headed to the nearest bunk bed. He'd been tired out from all the events of the day. And he still didn't know any of his companions...
The courier had decided to send a message ahead to the airship. A courier will arrive very shortly, it said, so please do not immediately kill him despite his allegiance. He does not mean you any harm.
Tomoya sighed as he turned off the helicopter and wondered how Dillon knew all of this stuff, Power equal to mine...he doesn't know anything yet! Tomoya harshly thought as he exited the craft and walked through the nostalgic hanger with his head held high and full of memories.
As Tomoya walked into the same room he used all them years back and saw it full of dust, he immediately decided to clean the room up and found his old clothes and a photo of all of them back in the day, "I didn't know we took a photo?" Tomoya said as he changed back into his old clothes, which was his short sleeved school shirt and some jeans. He walked out of the room to go to the canteen and grab a red bull or two.
The demon courier manifested just behind Tomoya, carrying a large wooden crate with several air holes in the top. Tomoya immediately tensed up, ready to attack. "Whoa, whoa, guv'!" he shouted. "I already tol'ja, I'm not 'ere to cause any trouble!" He pointed down at the crate. "Dat dere's a special delivery for ya'. Promise it dun' explode or nuttin'. Just sign 'ere," he finished, pushing a clipboard and a pen into the confused angel's face.
Eventually, slowly, Tomoya picked up the pen and scribbled something on the clipboard. "A'ight, yer' done," the courier said. "Postage pre-paid. Take good care o' her!" Her? Tomoya thought, as the demon returned to his domain. He looked down at the box, seeing the air holes for the first time. There's something breathing in there? Slowly, he pulled away the lid of the box--
--and found a familiar white-haired girl inside. She was still unconscious, but otherwise intact. She even still had all her effects - clothes, ribbon, swords, the lot. Tomoya was somewhat stunned to find her again, but eventually picked her up, taking her somewhere more comfortable than the inside of a box.
Tomoya picked the familiar girl up in his arms and sighed, She better remember me this time... he thought as he took her to the canteen where he laid her on the couch and got a red bull.
Phoenix came in saying "GUYS! I've found the Bl- Wait...Is that the girl Trial?!"
He rushed over to the girl on the couch.
"Oh God....How did she..." He started to well up a little.
"*deep breaths* I'm sorry...you shouldn't have to go though that..."
Tomoya was confused with the welling up Phoenix, "Ugh, all I know is that a demon courier came and delivered her to me...as much as I hate them couriers Im glad they brought this girl to me, I know her well, but hopefully she knows me as well..." Tomoya said as he looked at Youmu the white haired girl.
Wake up soon Youmu... Tomoya thought softly.
Phoenix wipes some of the tears from his eyes.
"uuhhhhhhhhggggg...anyways...I've got a fix on the BlackNoah...We can leave when you are ready to go...I just...Need a moment...I never did like losing a case...but just...when the sentence is..."
He didn't finish but instead left the room to go topside.
Tomoya was left more confused then he was before, he sighed, Hopefully Dillon will re-charge and then fly this baby to the destination... Tomoya thought before moving his eyes towards Youmu, "Hmm...Aha!" he said in unison to his thoughts.
He then walked over to the cookery station and started to make breakfast for sleeping beauty.
Dillon returned from the medical bat at perfect ease, his energy fully restored.
Dillon then went to the airship's helm where the steering wheel was.
"Now then lets give this old baby a spin."
Dillon pulled out a microphone made of copper. the other heroes could hear his voice
"Attention passengers, this is your captain speaking,Please go to the lounge for the duration of this flight and Please remain seated as the acceleration will be powerful enough to knock you off your feet. And endure no circumstances are you to leave the ship while we are moving if you are outside please get inside now the door will lock in one minute.
Phoenix quickly reentered the ship the door then automatically locked, Phoenix made his way to the lounge, as did Tomoya.
Dillon was checking all the gauges and the destination, they had plenty of fuel and there wasn't much wind. after his final check was complete he readied set the engines from FLoat o flight.
Thank you for choosing Steampunk and have a nice flight."
Dillon then pressed an accelerator with his foot, the ship moved forward and the heroes felt a lurch as the stationary ship became mobile. The Cloud generator had turned off on Dillon's check and now the movement allowed them to sea the wide ocean view the lounge offered through massive window.
just like before the whole ship was Steampunk the furniture from the Victorian era however they noticed in a cooler was a large amount of Coca cola.
"This is your Captain again, we might have a slight diversion as a storm is a distance away in our line of motion, I could go around it, but that could waste time, or I could go through it and that would be a bumpy ride. I'' let you guys think it over."
Phoenix ran up to the Cockpit where Dillon was, somewhat breathless afterwards.
He was about to speak when he saw the open Ocean out one of the side windows.
"Wwwwoooowwwww... Unbelievable...it looks so much better than in a Passager Jet..."
He refocused and turned to Dillon.
"Dillon, Set your course for this location..." as he pointed on a charter Map to a place in the Atlantic.
Gradually, Youmu blinked awake again, wondering where that smell was coming from. Surprisingly, this time she hadn't crash-landed - or at least, it wouldn't seem that way, seeing as she was face-up on some kind of makeshift bed. Turning to a sitting position, she finally saw that someone was cooking nearby. From behind, all she could make out was that they had jagged blue hair--
"Tomoya-kun?" she asked, not sure if he'd heard her. "Doko ni...Watashi-tachi wa doko desu ka?
Dillon realizing his error slapped his forehead.
"Oops my bad, well we should get there in just a few days, unless we have to go around this nasty storm then its a week."
Dillon let that sink in
"I have an hour or two before I have to decide so that's the amount of time you guys get to make a decision."
when Rugal left Dillon checked the disc once more.
once the image had been of him falling from the sky plummeting to his death, now it showed his piloting the airship.
"The truth is within my grasp" he smirked
Tomoya turned around with a pan with one hand and a spatula in another as he heard his name being called but he also remembered something, he coughed once, he hasn't said japanese in a long time but remembers it once more, "(You're in Ryan's airship, you arrived via Demon courier and I placed you on that couch...also I made you breakfast)" He said with a confused face hoping he had gotten the language right.
Then the announcement from Dillon sounded over the ship, "(...We had bette go otherwise...well, what he said)" Tomoya pondered as he slid the japanese breakfast onto a near-by plate and gave it to Youmu, he also grabbed her by the other hand and walked towards the airship's helm.
Tomoya and Youmu walked into the helm when Dillon just finished his speech, The truth? he thought, "Hey a demon courier gave me a familiar girl..." he said whilst putting Youmu in the spot light.
Phoenix turned away from the Map as Tomoya talked about Youmu.
oh God this is going to be awkward...
"Hey, Youmu...How are you going?..." Phoenix asked in the kindest manner possible.
Dillon at first didn't quite comprehend
"Oh well that's nice-
he whirled around (But still kept the ship on course)
"Oh wow isn't that nice, well this complicates the long term, though we do still have that for right now." Dillon gestured to the storm
"As I said you got an hour to decide, it may seem like I'm overobsessing over that storm but well it's all I can think about."
What Dillon wasn't mentioning was the fact that an image on the disk showed the airship being struck by lightning, Dillon would soon know the exact nature of the golden disc but as such the storm was the only object of importance
Thought Tomoya may have been able to sense the young mans emotions especially due to their connection.
Manor Rugal : War-Room
Rugal was watching the Airship from a Spy Satellite.
"Thats a nice Everything you got...Be a shame if something was to happen to it..."
He then motioned to one of his Men to fire Several Long Range SAM Missiles from the Manor at the Airship.
tons of red dots headed towards a large green one...
An unknown Source began trying to hail the Ship.
"Come on! Pick Up!"
Tomoya felt Dillon's emotions of worry over the storm, he sighed as he turned towards everyone, "It seems you guys have forgotten who I am...I can easily destroy that storm, I just need to get close to it" Tomoya said before walking to the hanger to get ready to fly.
As Tomoya readied to fly, he saw something coming towards the ship.
