Blossom and Buttercup watched, horrified, as Ms. Keane along with Bubbles
disappeared into the spaceship. Below, the children were heard screaming and crying from inside the school as they witnessed
the abduction of their beloved teacher.
Buttercup gritted her teeth angrily. "Whoever it is, he's in for some SERIOUS
heiny-whopping!" "Come on, we've got to rescue Ms. Keane and Bubbles!" Blossom shouted to her sister.
They flew straight at the spaceship, even more determined than ever to tear
it apart and deliver their teacher and sister out of the hands of the mysterious evil intruder. They spotted a small door
slowly sliding shut. In a flash they were at the door, banging and kicking on it and raking it with their optic lasers with
such intensity that it gave out. Without missing a beat they shot like a speeding bullet down the long, dark and narrow tunnel.
They reached the point where the tunnel split into four different directions and there they stopped, looking up and down the
"Aw, crap! Where did they go?!" Buttercup said in frustration.
"Shh! I think I heard something..." Blossom said suddenly.
Both the tiny super heroines listened attentively and could just barely hear
a small, intermittent noise from down one of the passageways. "This way!" Blossom cried, and off they went, even faster than
before and within seconds they found a circular metal door at the end of the tunnel. Without stopping they crashed through
it and into what looked like a control room with a huge viewer on one wall and the central command chair in the middle of
the floor. A lone figure could be seen sitting in that chair, but with its back toward them so they could not see its face.
They were no other living being besides the one sitting there.
"Not so - " Blossom began.
"-Fast, whoever you are!" Buttercup finished, "Give us back our teacher and
our sister, or I'm gonna whip your sorry butt off!"
The chair spun around and the figure sprang from it. Both the Girls took
a good look at the intruder for the first time. It was definitely a male being. He wore a black, armor-like uniform that encased
his massive physique and a horned helmet that made him seemed taller than he looked. His flat, though faintly human-like,
red face with metallic sheen looked somewhat surprised but extremely annoyed. His narrow yellow eyes, with no pupil or iris,
glowed as they focused upon the Girls.
"Xaba! ceq aquxe!" He shouted in a harsh, guttural voice.
"I don't understand what he said!" Blossom said to Buttercup, "If only Bubbles
is here with us...And where can she and Ms. Keane be?!"
"I don't care what he said, I'm gotta rearrange his face!" Buttercup snarled.
In a berserker-style rage she hurtled herself at the towering alien and released her rapid-fire punches and kicks to him.
He grunted, tottering forth and back from the force of her furious flurry of fists. Then, suddenly, he stopped wavering and
swung his huge hand so hard that Buttercup went flying across the room and slammed into the wall, making an impression in
it before she plopped down to the floor.
"Buttercup!" Blossom shouted. She was somewhat relieved as Buttercup picked
herself slowly off the floor. The redheaded Puff glared at the alien and threw herself straight at him, fixing to punish him
thoroughly. To her surprise it was like hitting a mountain, for the stranger stood immovable, not at all affected by her lightning-fast
fists. In fact, she saw belatedly that he was surrounded by a somewhat dimly glowing energy.
"He must've put up a kind of force field around him!" Blossom shouted. She
was slapped away with such a force that she was smashed into the wall before dropping down next to Buttercup.
"Cetz bexa teqez!" The dark stranger said again, and advanced on the Girls.
Buttercup looked up, snarled again, and sped off into air toward his head.
She let loose her laser beams that raked him from head to feet. She was quite disappointed when she saw he was completely
unharmed. Blossom joined her within seconds, and let loose Ice Breath on the alien, encasing him entirely in ice. No such
luck - he broke out of his frozen prison easily enough.
"Hey, Ugly Face, take THAT!" Buttercup called, holding up her 'hands'. Bright
green beams shot out of them, ripping into the black-clad stranger. It was to no avail, for he merely snorted contemptuously
and struck out his gloved hand. A dark ball of pure energy formed in his palm, and it shot out so suddenly that Buttercup
could not dodge it in time to prevent it from hitting her squarely in the chest. She screamed in pain and staggered back,
but recovered quickly and gritted her teeth. "Ha! That is all you can dish out, huh, Ugly Face?" She spat, wounding up for
yet another delivery of roundhouse to the alien.
"Buttercup! Come here! It's useless to fight with him - I have a better plan!"
Blossom called out.
Buttercup frowned furiously, but she backed off and flew back to her sister.
"You have a better plan, huh, Red? What's it about?"
"We have to find Miss Keane and Bubbles first. It's obvious they're not in
this room, so they've got to be somewhere around here!" Blossom said in a low voice, keeping a watchful eye on the glowering
alien, "My plan is, as soon when we find them and we get them out of here, we have to blow the ship up. Since we couldn't
take him down by ourselves, this may be the only way to defeat him!"
Buttercup was not very pleased about leaving in the middle of a fight, but
she nodded rather reluctantly. "All right...the sooner, the better!"
"Come on, then!" Blossom took off and headed for the door with Buttercup
The black-clad alien let out an angry shout, and his dark beam of energy
slashed through the air, narrowly missing Buttercup but blasting Blossom onto the floor with a cry. The raven-haired Puff
"Xenez! Taze ceq aqenz!" The alien said harshly.
"I don't know what you're saying, but if you wanna something, you have it
coming!" Buttercup shouted. In a green blur she swooped on him in another flurry of flying fists and feet, with an occasional
shoot of laser beams. For this she received a full blast that knocked her out of air and landed next to Blossom who was just
opening her eyes and looking around rather groggily.
"Buttercup?" The redheaded Puff asked anxiously.
Her sister did not answer. More slowly now but still fiercely determined,
the badly scorched Buttercup picked herself off the floor and with a battle cry she flew at the alien, her fist drawing back
for a major wallop upside his head. He responded with yet again black bolt of energy, this more deadly than before.
