Meanwhile, Emily knew just what to do with Steven. She retrieved Steven's cart from the robots and hauled it upstairs...toward the furnace! Click! The furnace opened, its flames ablaze. Emily cackled as she threw it down a slide, spinning toward the furnace...and clunk! it landed.
That wasn't the furnace, thought Emily. What was that?
Suddenly, Summer's skyfighter rose from the flames, with the cart hooked to a thick tow cable!
"Sorry, you old hag!" said Summer. "Can't let you roast my friend!"
Emily jumped aboard her speeder and zoomed after Summer as her fighter dove into a tunnel.
The petal at the metal, Summer zoomed through the tunnel, which seemed to be never-ending. Emily opened fire on Summer, who maneuvered all the bolts. I just hope Steven's OK back there.
Finally, Emily activated the speeder's rockets. Summer moved aside and Emily's speeder shot right through a vent! She landed in a swimming pool which stopped her fall.
Meanwhile, Helen climbed out of the hole Summer had cut underneath her. Then she saw Summer escaping with Steven's cart! She ordered three robotic fighters to go after Summer so she could look for Emily.
The fighters followed Summer and opened fire. After a brief dogfight, the chase led into a forest.
This proved to be an advantage for Summer, who could easily maneuver around the trees. One fighter crashed into a tree and exploded. Another's wing slammed into a tree and went spinning out of control, careening into another tree.
Summer flew into a cave, the third fighter close behind. Finally, it crashed into a stalactite. Summer breathed a sigh of relief, then landed a few meters away from the crash. Then she turned on her headlights and climbed out of her fighter. This might be a good place to hide, she thought. And think about what to do for Steven.
Meanwhile, Emily sent out a few bombers to find Summer. Although they discovered the cave that was part of the forest, they passed it right by.
Finally, Summer flew back to the school, with Steven's sleeping form squeezed in next to her. She didn't want the girls to think she still had Steven with her, and she had gotten into a fix both times she fought Emily.
Luckily, none of the girls were there. Summer found a key that Helen had dropped and used it to unlock the classroom doors holding all the boys.
With all the boys safe, Summer flew home with Steven and placed him on her bed. Then she went to get some ice.
Once she returned, she stuck the ice behind Steven's back. Steven started to shake and huff...and he was awake! Summer explained everything that happened that night.
"All right, I understand," he said. "Apparently Tower Placement isn't safe anymore with this war going on."
