Her sisters immediately left their friends and came running.
"What's the matter, Red?"Buttercup asked.
Blossom pointed, and her sisters peered avidly in the direction
"I see it!" Buttercup exclaimed after a moment.
"So do I, and I don't like the look of it!" Bubbles declared with
a small frown.
Curious and a little bit anxious, Ms. Keane craned her head and
looked, but at first she could not see anything. Soon, however, she could barely make out a black speck moving against the
clear, cloudless sky. It was so tiny, only a Powerpuff with keen eyesight could spot it in an instant. As she gazed at it,
the speck grew larger and larger until she saw with a shock it was a huge blood-red spaceship that resembled a Klingon ship
of Star Trek TV series.
Spell bounded, the teacher and her students
watched as it circled above Townsville once, then twice. Then, with a blinding flash, the white-purple energy beam burst from
one end of the ship and vaporized a few tall buildings within one miles of the Pokey Oaks School.
"Oh, no!" Blossom gasped as the panicky
children scattered, crying and running forth and back frantically.
"Children! Children, quick! Get inside right
away!" Ms. Keane shouted. Some of the children complied by running into the school building while the others continued to
run around, too frightened to pay much attention to their teacher. Bubbles leaped into action and hurriedly shepherded them
"He's in for some serious heiny-whopping!"
Buttercup said angrily as two more buildings melted under the sweeping beam.
"Right! Ms. Keane.. " Blossom looked inquiringly
at the teacher, "May we...."
"Yes, go on ahead! You are excused!" Ms.
Keane interrupted, making a quick go-ahead hand motion, "But be careful!"
Blossom nodded and took off into air at
top speed with Buttercup right behind her, leaving the pink and the green trails respectively behind them. Bubbles, however,
lingered behind. "Will you be okay, Miss Keane?" The blonde Puff asked looking at her with concern. The teacher had retreated
into the building and wasimmediately swarmed by the frightened children, clinging to her and chattering fearfully.
"I'll be fine, don't worry about me. Go
on, your sisters need you!"
"Okay." Bubbles said, and was gone in a
blue flash. "There, there, it's going to be all right." Ms. Keane reassured her tearful young students, trying to calm them.
One girl was quite hysterical so the teacher picked her up and cradled her in her arms. She wished her arms were long enough
to hug all of the children at once. She looked out the window and could see the Powerpuff Girls flying furiously around the
mysterious spaceship like angry bumblebees, pummeling at it from all directions. However, it was too massive to for them
to make any noticeable damage to it.
At least it has stopped shooting deadly
beams, and for that, Ms. Keane was quite glad. Even so, she anxiously watched her three unusual students battling it out with
the unwelcome visitor, praying silently and fervently that nothing harmful would befall them. Of course she knew that thanks
to Chemical X, the Girls are incredibly powerful and are impervious to most traumas and hazardous conditions that ordinary
human beings cannot endure. All the same, she could not help worrying for their safety.
Suddenly the beam burst forth from the ship,
narrowly missing one of the Powerpuff Girls. At once the tiny super heroes zigzagged back and forth, swooping high and low
as they did so, making it harder for the new enemy to shoot them down. So the beams ceased and the ship hovered almost motionless,
with no other signs of hostility even as the Puffs continued, with some difficulty, to cause as much damages as they could
to the metallic surface. Eventually one of the Girls broke off and floated off a little to the side, as though pondering the
next best move against the intruder. The spaceship somehow noticed this, for it immediately hit her with a high-powered white-purple
She fell out of the sky and spiraled toward
the ground, leaving pale blue trail and smoke behind her. She slammed into the blacktop, creating a deep crater with cracks
"Bubbles!" A horrified Robin Schneider who
has been watching the scene cried out. Ms. Keane gasped sharply, put down the girl she had been holding and rushed out. As
she reached the blue Puff she saw to her dismay that Bubbles was badly injured, with steam rising from her motionless body.
The first thought that came to her was she must take her to safety inside the building, as soon as possible!However, as she
reached out to scoop Bubbles up in her arms she heard a strange buzzing sound and looked up. Before she knew it, she and Bubbles
were engulfed in a simmering yellow light that lifted them both clear off the ground, taking them into the spaceship itself....
