Maverick looked around at the devastated cityscape and wondered if he was home, but noticed there was an overgrowth of plantlife that had not been here before.
On the cracked concrete, now split in many places by greenery, lay Jak’hal bleeding out. Mawen Rapider stood over him, a zela scimitar at the ready to separate the Space pirate from his life. Maverick had already collected the space pirate’s time shredder and a few weapons. He had also gathered a few of the dropped crystals and handed them out, explaining their use…in case they got separated.
Derlur, Gabi and Lurtor looked upon Earth for the first time. They could see it as a beautiful place. It was more humid than the Goblin Lands, and the sun was softer on the brow. But the skies were a blue equally beautiful if subtly different than the blues of their homeworld.
What this place meant was very different.
Maverick said, “They cleaned the skies somehow…in my age there was too much pollution still over the bones of the city. The IR made sure it remained there to help discourage scavengers and others from living in the ruins.
Just in case the IR is still around we should find cover before their Spy Satellites spot us and they send down a patrol to investigate.”
“Where is SAFE cover around here?” asked Gabi eyeing the ruined cityscape with suspicion.
“More importantly, what do we do about him?” asked Maverick cocking a finger at Jak’hal.
