Jasper, Kuzuki, Yuri and Mamoru was sitting in the new court yard section at the Government Square waiting for Charles Thompson to appear from a meeting.
“Remember Jasper to behave, this is not a meeting for you three to have your sexual tochy feely moments. Kuzuki and Yuri I know you are more behaved than he is. There’s something odd about this meeting that I’m worried about,” Mamoru told the group.
“Why would that be?” Yuri asked her.
“It’s just the nature of this visit. I don’t think he’s told any of his government minsters about this. I see him coming now,” Mamoru.
Charles came down the stairs and smiled at the Xtreme Squad as he came to them, “Welcome all, Lucas told you all that I needed to talk to you about something.”
“Yeah man, what’s the problem you got?” Jasper asked.
“Well the problem is Jasper is that I don’t know if it is one or not. I can’t tell,” Charles replied sitting down in the court yard gardens seats.
“Is it serious?” Kuzuki asked him.
“You might have noticed that some of the city light buildings were gone last night,” Charles told them.
Jasper nodded with a grin, “Yeah I saw them with Kuzuki, what’s that about?”
“Over the past few weeks our electricity grids have been experiencing loss of power from unknown causes. All of my ministers are not worried and believe it’s due to the old grids in the west of the city that are still used. But all of them having been losing power to some degree. The ones in the east which was invested by Scienceworks and then by Censilo himself when he was planning his takeover of the city have been drained too which those grids are bulletproof. I’m just worried that this is the start of something big,” Charles explained.
Mamoru sat down next to him and thought for a moment, “it’s not related to our first case, the disappearance of Akuryou?’
“I doubt it but we have to keep our options open. He is still wanted for his crimes and that his disappeared has been marked as an unknown death, seeming he hasn’t returned for a long time now. I know that your Cody Cyber might be able to help seeming he’s quite knowledgeable in other worldly areas. Just keep this under your hat and we’ll work on this together,” Charles suggested to the group.
“We’ll do,” Jasper nodded.
Mamoru turned to Charles when Jasper took the girls to a side and whispered in his ear, “What do you really think it is?”
“Since Mr Umezu pulled his stunt of using technology to connect to other worlds there has been increase usage of power from the grids,” he whispered back.
“You think its Cody or Umezu doing this?”
“Couldn’t be Cody. He’s pretty much trapped inside this world for a long time. Umezu with his past history you never know but he’s smart enough not to rock the boat with my government so those two are off my list. Could it be our disappeared man? He’s lost most of his connections because the Xtreme Squad has gone to work on them so that’s been rubbed out. That leaves us with nothing Mamoru,” Charles said.
Jasper peeked around at the gardens checking out the new areas with the girls, “They could make something like us before we came along. We’re been creating the peace. I wonder how Lucas is getting on with that tower of angels stuff?”
“He’ll be great. His magic is coming along strong. You’ll see,” Yuri answered.
The noise from behind wood was thumping when Lucas peeled back the door to see a young teenager aged angel appear. He was short and jumped back to the three of them watching. He had silver wings and wore a white gown.
“Oh who are you all? Is that the old man who I was expecting to find?” he asked.
“Who are you? Lucas asked holding on his blue magic club just for his protection.
“My name is Zarmal and I’m one of the followers of our angel goodness Nardia the ancient one who walks with us in here. We had heard that you have talking to the dark angels, the ones who broke away from us,” spoke the young angel.
Lucas turned around with Allegheri and Frithdar towards Mr Umezu for an answer, “How would have I know they were part of the bad unit. I got the message from both sides about my plans. Your people wanted extensions done to this leaking old place. How long has been since you updated your tower? Hundreds of years has it?” Mr Umezu snapped back waving his arms in defence.
“We’ll talk about this when we’re done here. Come and take us to your angel goodness. We are good people and even if you don’t believe it, this man is too,” Lucas replied referring to Mr Umezu.
The four of them continued up the long stairs towards a long passage way of grey statues of old angels kept in shadows and darkness. Frithdar wondered about the old angels and asked their new friend, “Who are these people?”
“These were angels who had passed away from long ago. We have remembered them in our own small ways. We keep to ourselves because of our dislike of the current world. Too many darkness has come into the light and we decided to stay within the safety of the tower away from harm,” Zarmal replied.
“Some have said the statues have been whispering as of late. The angels believe it’s because of the wrong doings of the dark angels.”
They arrived into a grey and white lined painted and crafted hall room where the other angels watched Lucas and the others as the angel goodness sat in her chair in the middle of the room. They were about to uncover the secrets of the tower of angels.
