The Rebellion of the Alien Aishas II: Part Five
The Escape From Faerieland
NEOPIA, FAERIELAND, FAERIE CITY, FAERIE MILITARY BASE,
HALLWAYS TO DOCKING STATION #52, 7:15 AM- Higola sped through the hallways,
with the alarm still screeching, but shouting out new words. “INTRUDERS HEADING
TO DOCKING STATION #52!!! ALERT!!! CLOSE ALL BULKHEAD DOORS TO DOCKING STATION
#52!!! ALERT!!!” Xelqued was right behind Higola, and behind him was the rest
of the crew of the fallen Nova Blight. They could all hear the grinding of gears,
as doors would begin to slowly close behind them or sometimes under them. The
hallways were truly huge, about 40 ft by 40ft. The large hallways were designed
to move large cargo, but they had Bulkhead doors if in case of a breach.
Right at that time, almost every door was
beginning to get ready to start to slowly grind its way up to the top, trapping
anything between them. But already Higola could see off in the distance a small
door in the distance with the words, “Docking Station #52 Service Entrance”.
She continued running, as did the rest of the crew. But the Faeries were prepared,
as several Security Turrets burst out of the ceiling and began firing at the
Aishas. Not being one to just flee, Xelqued knew the weak points in a Faerie
Turret, and whipped out his Ray Gun. Even while running, Xelqued had a sharp
shooting aim. He fired a bolt of energy onto the turret’s base and hit the wire
that controls the detonation sequence (You never know when someone might be
on the turret, ripping it apart). Without a control to determine whether to
detonate or not, the turret’s weak AI chose the former, and sent enough shrapnel
to every turret to mess up their aim.
The turrets weren’t a threat to the Aishas
anymore. The Bulkhead doors were now. Xelqued always had a plan, fortunately.
He aimed his ray gun at a light on the ceiling and fired. The light happened
to have mirror reflections on the inside of it. The beam of energy bounced off
of the light and into a thin little slit beside a closing bulkhead door. There
was a rumble in the ground, a very loud screech of metal, and the bulkhead door
stopped. Xelqued did the same with 5 other Bulkhead doors, and then the crew
The bulkhead door closed behind Xelqued
and his crew. They were right in front of the Service Door. Xelqued walked up
to the door and creaked it open. The doors to the dock were closed. The dock
was full of boxes, hundreds of them. Some Air Faeries were flying around them,
checking them. Up at the top of the dock was a control box with Earth Faeries
inside them. The box was shielded with glass, but the box wasn’t the threat.
The threat was that two fire faeries sat at opposite ends of the dock near the
door. They were mounted on turrets, the same ones that shot Xelqued down when
he entered Faerieland.
Xelqued looked over the layout of the garage.
OBVIOUSLY the Earth Faeries were controlling the door, so that’s a priority.
But the Fire Faeries would blast Xelqued to bits the second they saw him. It
took Xelqued a few seconds before he snapped his fingers and began whispering
his plan to the crew.
The two Fire Faeries sat at the controls
to their turrets, both bored. The Earth Faeries were tapping at the controls,
making sure that everything was all right, while the Air Faeries continued to
fly around, checking boxes. The dock was quiet… Until several boxes exploded,
throwing flames onto other boxes. The Air Faeries were stunned by the blast,
while the Fire Faeries regained their interest and pointed their turrets at
the area of the explosion. There was a thick cloud of smoke covering up the
explosion area, and a raging fire to match. Out of nowhere, several blasts of
light flashed around the room. One Fire Faerie was hit by a blast of energy
and was knocked out of her turrets and dropped to the floor. The other Fire
Faerie missed getting hit, but her turret took the damage, and quite a lot of
it, firing sparks and twirling until the Fire Faerie was flung right out. The
glass that covered the Earth Faeries shattered.
Going on the defensive side, the Earth
Faeries pulled leaves from their pockets and threw them at the cloud of smoke.
But those were no ordinary leaves… They were Earth Faerie Leaves! They sliced
the smoke cloud, but they couldn’t tell if they hit something. Milliseconds
later, Xelqued jumped out of the cloud, jumped off two flaming boxes and grabbed
the broken glass to the control box. Not exactly the most pleasant feeling,
but Xelqued was nearly impervious to pain. He pulled himself to the control
box, pulled out his Ray Gun, fired several times, and scared the Earth Faeries
to fly out. He hopped into the seat and pulled out Norbekk’s Scrambler. He aimed
it at the controls, fired the scrambler ray, and watched as sparks flew around
the tight room. After a few seconds of scrambling, the door began to open. As
soon as it started to creak open, Xelqued shut off the ray and hopped out of
the control box. The door continued to open and the Aishas rushed into the center
of the room. Off in the distance, the T-Shape of an Alien Aisha transport was
beginning to get closer.
But there was a new problem arising. The
door that led to the dock was closed and locked, but now a band of Faeries had
joined up at the door and were now trying to bring it down to deliver some Faerie
justice onto the Aishas. The loud banging and shouting out threats were covered
up by the sound of the fire and the crackling of electrical equipment spitting
out sparks. Xelqued fired a blast from his ray gun onto a pile of flaming boxes
beside the door, which toppled them over. As soon as Xelqued fired, the roaring
engines of the Alien Aisha Transport covered up the sound of everything else
in the room.
[ALIEN AISHA TRANSPORT- This transport is a basic in Alien Aisha Flight Technology.
It can fly like a Frigate, but cannot jump into Hyperspace. It has a weak defense
(The metal that it’s made of) and little offensive power (A small turret located
on the front of the ship, below the cockpit). The transport is shaped like a
T, with the Cockpit being at the tip of the |. Both sides have hatches that
go from the cockpit down to the intersection, and across it as well. When opened,
they reveal 30 seats, 15 on both sides. The use is pretty obvious: Transport
troops long distances that they could not reach or could not reach in an allocated
The hatches on the side opened as the huge
figure hovered down to a few meters off the metal floor. The crew quickly jumped
into the seats, while Xelqued slowly walked to the ship, watching the door.
Sure enough, the door and boxes all exploded and a crowd of faeries rushed the
room. Xelqued sprinted for the transport while the turret on the transport began
firing at the faeries. The transport bought Xelqued enough time to jump on the
hatch and scream “GO!!!” The transport began to back out from the dock, continuing
to fire at the Faeries. As soon as they cleared the dock area, Xelqued jumped
into his seat and the hatches closed. Stealthily, the Transport flew off into
the morning sky.
GARLAK IV, NIRZIP, GOVERNMENT BUILDING, 56TH FLOOR, 1:35PM- Xelqued sat in
the exact same dark room. He was extremely nervous as the Minister of Information
and Reconnaissance looked over a stack of papers on his desk and made noises
that indicated displeasure. After a few minutes of grunts, he put the papers
on his desk and shoved them aside.
“Let me get this straight Xelqued… Your
ship was halfway on its course when you were attacked by an Unidentified Object.
You couldn’t escape, so you abandoned ship and used the ship itself as a bomb
while you dropped onto Neopia. You then broke into a Faerie Outpost and stole
a transport. You flew to Faerieland, and were shot down. You stole Faerie Weaponry,
rushed through a kilometer of Faerie Territory, hijacked Faerie Com Outpost,
contacted a nearby Aisha outpost, had them send over a transport, destroyed
the Com Outpost, destroyed a dock and escaped. Am I right?”
“Yes sir,” Xelqued replied meekly.
The minister looked at Xelqued for a good
minute and laughed heartily.
“Xelqued, you never cease to amaze me.
Yes, the mission was a failure. But you caused more damage than you did with
your last campaign. I’m not sure why I’m saying this but… Good Job!” The Minister
extended his hand and Xelqued grabbed it. They shared a handshake and the minister
sat back in his chair.
“Excellent. Now, go up to Floor 79. Give
the secretary there this note. Talk to the Admiral. He’ll brief you.” The minister
scribbled down a note and handed it to Xelqued.
Xelqued walked out of the office, into
the elevator. He got to the 79th floor, and walked in. He handed the secretary
there the note. The secretary sent Xelqued to the Admiral’s office with the
note. When Xelqued handed the Admiral the note, the Admiral laughed.
“So, it’s time… come here, Xelqued…” The
Admiral brought Xelqued to the center of his office. The admiral pressed a few
buttons on his desk, which shot out a hologram into the center of the office.
The hologram showed Xelqued the plans for the next mission. As soon as the hologram
was done briefing Xelqued, the Admiral looked at Xelqued, and Xelqued looked
back. They both shared a good laugh… But not a Haha laugh… More of a “MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!”
Not quite “The End”…
Author’s Note: Yes, I’ve been a lazy bum for the past20 or something weeks.
But never fear, I’ll be back… With the next part of the series! Don’t fear,
I’ve still got 3 more series to type out… Give e a year… Ermm… That’s the part
where you laugh… LAUGH!
