It had been three weeks since she had defeated Aries, and she had been fighting constantly. Aries had left her on the surface of Mars, surrounded by viruses. They were small, but they had a lot of numbers, and she was running out of Battle Cards. Completely out of Attack Cards, and down to her last Recovery Card, she had to be careful.
On the Astro Wave over Planet Earth, a red light shot down, and Zero materialized. She stood up holding her right arm, breathing heavily from exhaustion, but she saw the transporter to Echo Ridge in the distance. She started walking, but stopped when an army of Mettaur and Gatling Gun viruses appeared in front of her. She looked down and dropped her arm, but then pulled out her last Recovery Card.
She activated the Recovery Card, which rejuvenated her part way, enough to hold up her Z-Saber. She then looked up, activated her Z-Saber, and got in a fighting stance.
“Let’s go,” she said before running forward. When she made contact with the viruses she immediately began slashing and deleting them, only enough to get forward. Three Mettaurs got in her way and shot their shock waves at her, but she jumped over the attack to dodge. When she landed she created two clones of herself. The clones attacked the viruses at the sides, and she came at the center and slashed all three, deleting them. The clones disappeared and she continued to run forward. Right when she reached the transporter, a Golem virus jumped down in front of her.
“I was so close too!” Zero said looking up at the virus, and then looking at the transporter behind it, “You can’t stop me!” she said getting in a fighting stance, she then shouted...
“Wave Battle! Action!”
She rolled out of the way as the Golem’s hammer came down. She then jumped up and slashed at it, but only did minor damage with her Z-Saber.
“This could take a while,” she said before jumping out of the way of the Golem’s hammer. She knew that she couldn’t handle too many attacks from this thing, so she’s have to use hit and run tactics. The screen on her left arm started glowing, and the image of her partner, Xerox, appeared.
“Kid, don’t over exert yourself. Just used it’s weight against it,” Xerox said.
Zero nodded and ran up to the virus again. She slashed at it once, and then ran up to the edge of the Wave Road. The Golem slowly made it’s way to the edge, and raised its arm ready to attack with it’s hammer. It came down, but Zero rolled out of the way, and then used her foot to kick the Golem off the Wave Road, where it began to deteriorate and delete itself.
Zero slowly walked to the transporter, and ported to the surface. Unknown to her, Harpuia was hovering over the Wave Road in his Wave Form watching her.
“You survived... good...” he said as he fazed away.
It was night on the surface when Zero teleported in front of Hope and Kelvin Stelar’s home. She slowly walked over to the door and rang the doorbell, a red flash seen on the door just as the door opened, Hope on the other side.
“Hello?” she asked. She was shocked to see Luna Platz fall in her arms unconscious, her hair flowing out freely, all the way to her knees, “Luna!” she exclaimed in shock. She had heard on the news that Luna had disappeared, and no one had seen her for three weeks.
For a second, all Hope could do was stare at Luna in shock, but then looked back in the house, “Kelvin!” she shouted pulling Luna inside. The door shut, Harpuia staring at the door from the distance.
Harpuia nodded, and then fazed away, returning to outer space.
