The cruise finally made to China, as soon as everyone made it off the ship, they flew around the city of Shanghai. As they flew, Tore asked "So where is Chases old hideout anyway?". "I know where it is. My father once told me where." Opal said. "Hang on. I said that she might be at the old hideout? I'm not entirely sure that she'll be there." Kingsely said. "Where esle do you think she might be?" Persi said. "Well, we could check at my dad's old house outside of Guilin. It might have some clues where she might be." Kingsley said. "So what do you think we should do?" Roy asked. "Mybe we should split up. Cayenne, you take Tore, Persi, and Kingsely to Guilin. Opal, Alex , Roy, and I will look for Chases hideout near..." Chloe said before she looked at Opal. "Nanjing." Opal said. "Nanjing. If any of us find anything, we'll contact one another." Chloe said. "Sound like a plan." Cayenne said. "Alright everyone. Break!" Tore shouted. The two groups flew of in seperate directions, one towards Guilin, the other towards Nanjing, hoping to find whereabouts on the witch named Wuya.
Cayennes group flew nearly around 6 hours and they were getting tired, they decided to stop at Nanchang. Thanks to Persephones gift of tongues, she could speak and understand Chinese. They were eating at a restaurant called Youshan Middle Restaurant. They ordered their food and sat down. Tore saw some green stuff and said "Oh green ice cream." than scooped up an spoonful of the stuff. "Uh Tore, I wouldn't do that. That stuff is wa-" Kingsley said before Cayenne put her hand over his mouth with a sinister smile across her face. The boy ate the whole spoonful of the green stuff and said "Huh, not very cold for ice cream.". As his face gradually got red, Tore started to scream until he literally flew through the roof in a ball of fire. The people below saw Tore as a comet and looked on awe. The boy splashed in a nearby pond. He got out dazed and smoking before he passed out.
Cayenne was laughing her ass off while Persi was asking around if they saw a comet fly by an where it might of landed. "Why did you do that?" Kingsley said. "Cause it was hilarious. Did you see him fly though the roof?" Cayenne said. "Yeah, and left me to pay the bill. Honestly Cayenne, he's trying to help us for free and you do that to him. Are you trying to drive him off?" Kingsley said. "Jesus Kingsley, chill out. What crawled up your ass?" Cayenne said. Persi saw that they were about to argue and stepped in and stopped it by saying "Guys, calm down. We need to find Tore before something happens to him.". Chloe walked ahead and Persi said to Kingsley "Don't worry Kingsley, I try and get Cayenne to apoligize later. Let's just focus on looking for Tore.". "Hang on, don't you have his number." Kingsley asked. "His number?". "His phone number Persi. You know the one you can use on your phone." Kingsley said. "(Gasp) Oh yeah. I keep forgetting that I have this phone thingy." Persi said , she than took out her phone and fiddled with it saying "Now how do you work this thing again?". "(Sigh) let me see it" kingsley said.
Tore was finally gaining consciosness, and spat out a koi fish. His phone beeped to tell him about a text message he recieved. "How is my phone still working?" Tore asked as he checked it. He read a text message that he got outloud and said "Hey. Where are you?" and he typed out "Don't know, some kind of pond. I'll wait for you guys to find me." than heard some rustling in the bushes nearby. "...Hello?" Tore quietly said. He felt a breeze brush behind him and looked behind. Nothing was there. He turned back around and fell on is back when he saw a semi transparent boy floating in midair. He wore a yellow long sleeved shirt with blue jeans. He also had wavey black hair and icy blue eyes. Tore took a deep breath and said "Hi there. The names Tore. What yours?" with a smile. The boy was suprised by Tores response and said "Not the response I usually get...My name is Damion...I've...I've been following you guys since Santa Rosa. I wanted to help you guys get Kingsleys parent back to normal. The only person who can turn them back to normal is the same person who turn them to stone in the first place." the boy said in a sad and shy tone. "And you know who that is?" Tore asked. "I-I do". "Great, I'll Kingsely and let him know that-" Tore said as he as he pulled his phone out, but Damian interrupted him saying "W-wait! I have an idea on how we can turn them back to normal, but for it to work, you need to come with me alone.". "Why?" Tore replied.
Kingsley, Persi and Cayenne were still looking around town, when Persis phone beeped. "What was that?" Persi said as she looked around her. "That was your phone. Tore responded to the text. Persi got it out and she said it aloud saying "Change of plans, be back tomorrow, continue ahead without me.". "What!?" Kingsley and Cayenne shouted. "Great, he left us. Go fucking Figure." Cayenne said. "He probably left cause you were being so mean to him." Kingsely said. "Whatever, lets just go to Guilin." Cayenne scoffed. "No not whatever. you drove him away. Don't you feel even slightly bad about it?" Kingsley said. "You talking back to me Spicer. You know happened last time don't you? Or did you forget?" Cayenne said as she slowly turned around approached. "No, no, not again!" Kingsley said as she slowly backed away. Kingsley ran away with Cayenne closing in on him. Persi sighed and said "Oh Tore, I hope your having better luck than me."
"So you really think that this'll work?" Tore said as he and Damian were walking down a Rocky quarry. "I-I hope it does. Otherwise we might be both in huge trouble." Damian said. "So how do you know about all this Damian?" Tore questioned. "I sometimes listen to Drake alone in the dark and cry. Lately he's been talking to himself alot. Almost like he's talking to someone who we can't see." Damian said. "Ineresting...wait you were crying? What's wrong?" Tore said. "Nothing really. I...just like being sad.". "You like being sad, why?". "Well why do you like being happy. The whole time I saw you, you always have a smile on your face." Damian asked. "You need a reason to be sad. You don't need a reason to be happy." Tore responded. "Hm...this might sound kind of weird, but being sad does make me happy." Damian said. "...Huh...never heard of that before." Tore said.
After a couple more minutes of walking, Damian said "We're here." The two saw a gaint castle made of crimson stone, with a flag at the top that had a A, B, and a Y in blood red paint over top one another. "This is one of the Young blood alliances many hideouts. Drake usually hangs out here to train." Damian added. "Thanks, I'll take it from here." Tore said and he approached the castle. "Are you want to do this?" Damian said in worry. "Yep. I want you to stay out here in case something goes wrong. If I'm not back in 4 hours, go to plan B." Tore said.
Tore walked up to the castle gates and knocked loadly. An intercom came on and a familar female voice said "What do you want?". Tore clears his throat and says "Heyo. Can I speak to Drake? Preaty please?". The gates slowly opened and Tore walked inside. In the crimson hallways of the castle, he saw Prissy with Savage and Carnage behind her, waiting for him. "Can I help you?" she said. "Hey, I know you. You were on the cruise ship while it was being attacked by pirates." Tore said. Savage and Carnage got in front of him and Carnage said "She asked you a question. What are you doing here?". "Oh yeah! Uh, I like to speak to Drake please.". "What for?" Savage asked. "I want to make a deal with him. Is he home?".
The three escorted Tore across the halls. While they did, Priss said "You're lucky Victor is out on a mission right now. He would be most upset to see you here after your twos last skirmish.". "He was so mad after he woke up. His face was so red, it was hilarious." Savage said as he laughed. "That's enough, Savage." Priss calmy said. "Aw come on big sis. We just having a laugh."Carnage replied. "Big sis? Wait, how old are you three?" Tore asked. "It's impolite to ask a lady her age." Priss replied. "We're 17." Savage said. "She 17!? But she so...so..." Tore shouted. Priss was getting mad. "I'm sorry. I've just never met someone so...fun sized before." Tore quickly responded. Priss made a confused look at what she just heard. While her brothers we're laughing, Carnage saying "That's a new one. I like this guy.". They continued down the halls.
"So what it like having crab hands?" Tore asked the two. "Well honestly, it's kinda rough. You can't pick stuff up like a normal person." Savage said. "Ya can't drive, can't write." Carnage said. "Ya can't eat with forks and spoons, can't use a laptop or a phone, and worst of all-" Savage said. "You can't play video games." Both of the said at the same time. "That's (Sniff) that's awful. I never reliazed how bad it was not to have hands...(Gasp) I know something you two could do." Tore said. "What?" Savage said. "You make paper mâché stuff. I bet with those crab hands, you can cut paper real good.You two could create awesome paper mâché sculpures." Tore said. "We've never tried that before. We always thought that was lame." Carnage said. "It's not lame at all. It's a little messy, but it's very fun. You should try it sometimes." Tore said. Priss stopped them saying "We are here. This is the audiance chamber. You'll speak with Drake in here.". "Awesome, thank a bunch" Tore said, than hastely ran inside.
The room Tore was in was dark, with only a single spotlight illluinating him. He looked around the room to only find darkness surrounding him. "I heard that you wanted to speak to me, Tore." A voice that came from the darkness said. Another spotlight shined down to reveal Drake, who was 10 feet across Tore. "You know my name?" Tore questioned. "Of course, your fight with Victor was quiet the spectactle. You showed quite amazing fighting capabilites and powers that we have never seen. You would make an amazing addition to the alliance." Drake said with a sinster smile. "Thanks, but I didn't come here to join your club." Tore said. "Than why did you come here?" Drake asked as his smile turned into a glaring frown. "I came here to make a deal. I have some sensative information that you probably don't want getting out." Tore said. "Like what?". "I know that you've been spying on Chloe for quite awhile, haven't you?". "And what if we have, what does that have to do with anything." Drake said. "You really want her join you guys, right? She probably won't want to join when I tell her that you ordered Shen Mi to turn her parents into stone! I'm guessing she doesn't know about you guys yet. She'll never join your side if she finds out.". Drake quitely laughed and said "Really? What evidence do you have to support this accusation?". "I don't haft to have any evidence. Chloe traveled across the world to try and change them back. She's desperate to get them back. If I tell her that some organization that she never heard of turned her parents into stone, she'll believe me with or without evidence." Tore said. "And what makes you so certain of that?" Drake asked. "Who's she going to believe more? The guys who went across the world with her to help out, or someone who she never met before?" Tore said. "You can't tell her if you die here." Drake said. "That's where your wrong Drake. I have an informant that waiting for me to return. If I don't get back to him within three hours, he's instructed to go and tell Chloe everything." Tore replied. Drake thought to himself for a second before saying "What do you want?". 'I want you to get Shen Mi to turn Mr and Mrs Spicer back into flesh and blood and in return, I'll keep this whole thing a secret. Even if she didn't cast the spell, she probably powerful enough to turn them back. Waddya say?" Tore said than he reached out his hand. Silence spread across the room with Tore question towards Drake. "...Fine. We'll agree to your demands, but if this secret gets out. We will track you and your loved ones down and destroy them all. Are we clear?" Drake said as he approached. "Far enough. Let's shake on it." Tore said. Tore and Drake shook hands in agreement. Than Tore left the room.
"You can come out now Shen Mi." Drake said. His sister, Shen Mi came out from the shadow and said "I still can't believed that he didn't notice the magic circle under him.". The entire room lit up to reveal a magic circle. "Yes, we can now restrict his power whenever we please. He thinks he may have won, but he has no idea how much he's truly lost" Drake said. You know what's funny...when I looked into his eyes, I didn't see a single ounce of hatred in them." Shen Mi said.
Tore met Damian outside rock quarry and said "It worked, your plan actually worked.". "It did? Than Kingsleys parents should turn back to normal." Damian said. "Couldn't have done it without your help. C'mere." Tore said. He tried to the the ghostly boy, but he passed right through and fell on the ground. "Maybe we should go and check them before Kingsley goes back." Damian said. "Good idea." Tore said.
As Kingsley, Persi, and Cayenne were walking around town, Kingselys phone rang. Answering it, he heard a familiar voice on the other end that said "Hi sweetie.". "Mom" Kingsley said in shock.
Everyone made it back to the mansion with news that Mr. and Mrs. Spicer are flesh and blood once more. "I don't get it. How are you guys back to normal?" Kingsley said. "Well after you two got kidnapped, we called Cayenne to tell her about it. Then we were getting ready to go ourselves, and that when we were turned to stone." Jack said. "Do you happen to know who done the dead?" Roy said. "Sorry, didn't see who did it. Also who are you?" Mrs. Spicer said. "I'm Roy...the mercenary you hired to get your kids out of that fortress." Roy stated. "We didn't hire a merc." Jack said. "What are you talking about? You put a job out to break your kids out online and I accepted it." Roy said. "Wait, you accepted the job online? Not in person?" Chloe said. "Yeah, that's where I get most of my jobs from." Roy said. Cayenne laughed and said "You realize that anybody can use the internet right. Did you really think that they post a job when they have me, and their robots and powers to get them out?". "But...I..." Roy stuttered. "You dun goofed, dumbass." Cayenne said. Roy was thinking for a second, than got angry and shouted "FUCK! I was supposed to get a million dollars from this job. I went around the world for it, and your telling me that it was fake the whole time? Son of a bitch.". He nearly stormed out before he stopped himself saying "Oh yeah, before I forget. Opal, catch!" than pulled out the mind reader conch and tossed it to Opal. She caught it and said "Oh yeah, the mind reader conch.". "Wait, your telling me you forgot about that? Damn it, I could have sold it on the black market. Oh well, at least there's one thing that I salvaged out of this." Roy said. His hand glowed green and the pink halo appeared above his head. "Thanks to this halo, I can use haylin magic without it tearing me apart." Roy said. "Your welcome." Chloe said. "I'm out." Roy said, than teleported in green flames.
"I still don't get how you guys turned back to normal." Persi said. "Oh yeah, I did that." Tore said. Everyone looked at Tore in confusion and Cayenne said "How?". "Sorry, that's a secret." Tore said. Cayenne got mad and put Tore in a headlock saying "Tell me!". "I can't. I promised I'd keep it a secret." Tore said as he struggle to get out. "Cayenne stop. I don't think it matter how he did it, All that matters is that he got them back to normal. Please let him go." Persi said. Cayenne put Tore down and he said "Alright, I'ma get going. See you tomorrow.". "Wait, why" Kingsley said. "Oh yeah, nearly forgot to tell you guys. I'm moved in to the neighborhood. Roy is too. Just imagine all the crazy things were gonna do together." Tore said.
