It didnt take long for the soldiers to board the ships. What took the longest was deciding where the demons would ride. It was finally decided that Rudy and the demons would take the original Gull Wing, with Lucid and a few of the soldiers. Jack, Emmilia, and Jane would ride on the newer one, nicknamed the Eagle wing.
Jack took the lead, heading southeast towards Rosseta. Rudy followed. Half an hour latter, they passed over the dual blade desert. And Rudy knew where the summon was coming from. He started to land the ship. Zed looked over, puzzled. "Whats up?"
Rudy didnt look up as he headed towards the side. "I need to find out the truth. I put the Gull wing on autopilot. You should be fine. And dont follow me. This is something I must do alone "
Boomerang came up beside Zed. "And where are you going?"
Rudy looked down at the desert below him. "Down."
He jumped. Before anyone else could act, Lucid followed.
Zed shook his head. "What is that crazy wolf up to now?"
Boomerang shrugged. "How should I know? Im only a companion."
Zed shook his head in disbelief. "Ill never understand Guardians, or holmocrosses for that matter "
The Gull Wing had begun to re-ascend after Rudys departure. With its current height, there was no way that the demons could follow, without learning how to pilot the ship. Slash looked towards the two very confused demons. "What just happened?"
They looked at each other, and shrugged. Boomerang shook his head. "I finally found a being more confusing than you."
It was no longer Zed and Boomerang who appeared confused. The Zed turned to Boomerang. "Somethings really bothering me."
Boomerang looked up, a little alarmed. "What?"
"Well Remember what Zeikfried said? He said The quartet knights will have their revenge But there are only three of them. Whos the fourth?"
Boomerang looked at Zed, very alarmed by the sudden revelation. "Youre right. You dont think hed "
"Why not? Hes already done it once." Zed looked over at the Eagle wing. "I guess we should see if Jack heard that. Otherwise "
Boomerang laughed a little. "Good luck."
Zed looked at him in shock. "What do you mean? Theres no way "
"Well " Boomerang looked over at the other ship. "You are the only one who could make it across. And "
"And besides myself, youre the only demon Jack knows." He looked back at Zed, a small glimmer of amusement showing.
Zed wasnt impressed. "You must think Im suicidal! If I tell Jack about that "
The two looked at each other for a few minute, then Zed glanced at the other ship. Then back to Boomerang. "You owe me one "
Zed checked the sheath holding Striker, then turned to Boomerang. "Go make sure those fools keep the ship steady. This is going to be hard enough as it is "
Boomerang nodded, then decided down towards the cockpit. Zed shook his head, and quietly spoke to himself. "I must be crazy " He took one last glance at the Eagle wing, then leaped towards the other plane. Many of the soldiers aboard the Gull wing watched, convinced Zed was trying to kill himself.
They cheered as Zed landed on the Eagle wing. Many of the soldiers aboard it watched shocked as he landed. Jack walked forwards, shaking his head. "You must be crazy."
Zed laughed. "I agree, but for a different reason. Wheres Emilina?"
Jack glanced towards the back of the ship. "Around. Why?"
Zed took a deep breath. "Because "
Jack was now puzzled. "Because?"
Zed took a deep breath. "Because I think Zeikfrieds trying to repeat the past. He may be trying to turn Cecilia into "
Jack leaped up, his sword in hand. "No! He couldnt be. He isnt "
Zed put his hands up, defensively. "I dont know. But the way hes been acting Zeikfried that is, suggests that something is up. But it may be that hes trying to upset us "
"Ill not let him! Ill stop him, somehow. Hes caused enough harm as it is. I shant let another be harmed that way Wheres Rudy?"
"Hes gone. He took off when we passed over the blade desert. Lucid went with him. But I dont know why."
"I dont care why. He agreed that wed "
Zed cut him off. "Youre forgetting that he seems to know something we dont. Although I must admit, I never thought hed try to kill himself. He leaped out of the Gull Wing while we were still in the air I guess I should get back now."
Zed turned to leap back to the other ship. "Hold it!" Zed turned around, surprised, as Jack yelled at him. "I dont need any soldiers suffering from shock. No more aerial acrobatics, ok?"
Zed was really shocked now. "You mean youre not going to try and kill me?"
Jack shrugged. "Whats the point? Youre helping us, so all it would end up doing is weakening out position. Right?"
Zed couldnt contain his surprise. "It seems that Boomerang and I arent the only ones changing "
Jack turned his back to the warrior. "So it seems "
