"Dad's here, guys!" Called Kyra's big sister, April, from downstairs. Kyra grabbed her suitcase and went downstairs. It hadn't been the same since Mum and Dad had gotten divorced the Jahr before. "Kasey, Ivy, C'mon!" yelled Kyra. "We're coming, we're coming!" Kyra's twin brother shouted down to her. Their Dad walked through the door. "Nice to see you're doing well with the kids, Julia" He sagte to his ex-wife. "Same to you, Kaylen." Mum said, coldly. Ivy ran to her Dad "Daddy!" She smiled as she ran up to him. "Hey, Dad." sagte Kasey.
"You all up for a good weekend, then?" Their Dad grinned. "Suppose it beats watching 'Have I Got News For You!
." April sagte vaguely while she was texting whoever her new boyfriend was.
"So..Dad....Are Du and Mum gonna get back together again?" Kyra asked her Dad cautiously, when they were sitting on the couch Weiter to each other later on.
"Hm? Oh, I'm sorry, Kyra, but me and your mother just don't get on anymore..."
"Oh...Why'd Du teilt, split up with Mum in the first place, though, Dad?"
"..Our opinions were too different..She wanted me to go to the army to fight for our country when the war started last year. I thought it was pointless, and from then...we just..argued all the time, and neither of us were happy, so..."
"I get it, Dad...but Mum's against the war and politics and stuff now..so don't Du think Du could?"
Dad sighed "I wish it was that simple, Kyra.."
"Um...Meg? Are Du sure Du know where you're going?"
"Of course I do! ...ok, so left at Andromeda...into the milky way in a couple of days...."
There was a groaning from the passenger seats. "Aww...this is too long....When are we gonna get there?!" Gwen sighed and banged her head on the back of Chill's seat.
"Yeah..couldn't we have just done what Tails and his mates did last time they went?"
Chill turned around "If I hear anyone complain about the journey I'll freeze your heads, got it?"
Amazingly, at that point, everyone stopped complaining. And that was also when they heard a slight muttering.. "They'll never find us, ok? Stop worrying already...."
Kylie grabbed a metal pole-type thing and prepared to hit whatever was talking..they were hiding behind the bigger supplies they'd brought..she moved the crates out of the way to find...stowaways... "You were saying?" Esme Cooper sagte sharply. "Er...Hey..." Electra said, grinning scaredly. Kylie put down the pole. "What are Du doing here?" was all she could say. "Who is it, Kyle?" Amber called from the seats. Kylie turned around. "Um...Beanie? We've got some stowaways..."
"Um.." Cleo walked over to them. "There's ..er...you are?"
"Esme Cooper." Replied the raccoon. "What's it to you?"
Cleo chose to ignore Esme. " And you're name is, miss?"
"Electra Tanzine." Electra said, slightly scared
Gwen turned around. "What should we do with 'em, boss?"
Beanie groaned and turned around to face them. "Might as well let them tag along. I don't want to have to travel all that way again-don'tfreezemyfaceChill!"
Chill frowned and turned to face the front again. "Let's just get there. I don't want any hold-ups..."
"Jeez, this thing's fast! We're already at Jupiter!" Called Meg from the front. "oh...so "Please fasten your seatbelts, we'll be arriving soon..."
All of a sudden, the ship shook violently.
"What the heck was that?!" cried Gwen.
Meg looked at the controls quickly. "Not the engine...we're too close to Earth to have hit the Asteroid Belt... Defenses...FAILING?!
Oh, god, we've been hit! Fasten your seatbelts, please, guys, this is gonna be a rough landing!"
As the ship fell towards Earth, everyone in there were seriously doubting their life would last any longer than when they landed. And if they did, how would they get back home?...
