Summer didn't remember when she woke up. One minute, it was pitch black in the car. The next, Steven pulled her out of the wreckage.
"Welcome home, Eegan," Summer said, standing up.
Suddenly, Steven stopped dead in his tracks. "We're not alone."
"Do you think it could be...Emily!" Summer answered. "Emily's here! You know why those skyfighters attacked us? Emily is trying to prevent us from saving Eegan!" She didn't think she was ready to fight Emily. Not after what happened last time.
"You need you to trust me," Steven said. "I can't face Emily alone. We only lost because we didn't work together!"
"I get it!" said Summer, suddenly feeling less afraid.
Suddenly, Emily reached them in her speeder and climbed off. Steven and Summer ignited their lightsabers.
"Surrender Zira's son or die," said Emily. "Don't assume that because there are two of you and one of me, you have the advantage."
Steven and Summer charged. Even with Summer and Steven pressing her, Emily was at ease. The Boy-Team members used every trick they knew, leaping and striking from unexpected directions. Emily blocked them all. At least she's not having any luck hitting us than we are hitting her, Summer thought. That's a big improvement over last time.
As the duel reached the first set of stairs to the Whitehouse, Emily knocked over Summer with a strong kick. However, Summer got up quickly and rushed back up the stairs.
She can't fight in two directions at once, thought Summer. If I can just--
But just as she was about to strike, Emily dodged the blow. A surge of dark power from Emily's mind lifted Summer into the air as she kicked out at Steven with all her weight behind her.
With a blast of lightning, Emily hurled Summer toward the wall like a torpedo. Summer crashed and fell to the grass, knocking the wind out of her.
Furious, Steven kicked Emily off the stairway, but she landed on her feet. He wanted to rush over to Summer and feel her pulse. It's up to me now. I can't give her even the slightest opening. He tried to concentrate on Emily, but his fear for Summer was hard to ignore.
As Steven and Emily clashed, Summer noticed something on the ground and barely reached it. She was still conscious after all, but only just.
"I see you have practiced," Emily said as she slashed at Steven. "Still, you have--"
Summer flung the object she had found into the air. It was a data pad!
Steven caught it and back-flipped onto Summer's car. Realizing neither one of them could win, Emily jumped onto her speeder and drove away.
