Lost on an isle
It was a normal evening at the aquatic center. Nothing was to do, so Axel was at his laptop, Lioness read a book an King was in the kitchen, eating. Shark and Hawk were playing a video-game. Suddenly Axel´s cell phone rang. "Yeah?", he said,"Okay, we´ll be there." He ended the talk and turned to his friends, "That was Mr Lee. He wants us to test a new long-haul aircraft." Hawk looked up and started smiling,"Great! When do we have to come?" "Tomorrow morning, we´re due to arrive at eight. We´ll meet him at the hangars", Axel said while he stood up and walked to his room. He was tired and it was about eleven o´clock. "See you tomorrow", he said and closed his door.
"Hey, dudes, do you know what´s wrong with him?", Shark suddenly asked," I mean it´s just about eleven and he went to bed, that isn´t usual."
"I don´t know what he has got, but it´s contagious", Lioness replied.
"You mean he´s ill?" Hawk questioned.
"No, I didn´t mean that he´s ill. I wanted to say that I´m tired, too." She closed her book and arose. After she closed her door, King came in. "Hey, where´s Axel? And where is Lioness? Are they doing something together?", he asked Shark and Hawk.
"Axel went to bed and Lioness is in her room. And I´m acting like them now. Good night", Hawk answered and a few moments later there were just King and Shark.
"Do you want to play?", Shark asked and pointed at the second controler. King smiled, "If you want to lose!"
The next morning Axel rose with the sun. His alarm clock showed that it was just about five. He got up and put his tracksuit on. Then he walked quietly to the gym. Outside the sun was rising and dipped the sky into orange and pink colors. In the gym Axel did some stretching exercises before he started with his training. He imagined an invisible opponent and began to punch and kick him without any warnings.
After an hour of fighting with this opponent he heard a silent noise behind him. Axel stopped the fight and turned around. A shadow stood in the door and watched him. At second sight he realized that it was Lioness. She took a step into the light, so he could see her. She wore black pants and a green top. Her brown hair were in a pony-tail.
"You needn´t stop because of me", she said smiling. Lioness went towards him and surrendered in front of Axel. Just now he noticed how heavily he breathed.
I don´t know why, but she looks different today. More beautiful as otherwise...
"What is?", Lioness asked with a confused sight. He noticed that he was staring at her. Quickly he looked away.
"Fight with me, or are you afraid of being beaten by a girl?"
Axel smiled. No, Lioness was no girl. She was more than that. First of all she was a very good Capoeira fighter. It would not be easy to beat her.
And she was his friend and teammate. But when she was around him, he felt different, just like now. An unknown feeling sat into his chest and he often tried to find out what it was. Till this day he didn´t discovered that feeling and he thought that it would take a long time.
Axel went into a fighting position and waited for her to begin. Suddenly she jumped into the air and kicked him. He blocked and kicked back. Lioness ducked down and tried to punch his face. Axel rolled into her back and started and attack. She dodged and kicked.
Each one tried to kick and punch his opponent down. But that wasn´t easy. Lioness was very flexible because of her Capoeira. And Axel was skilled in Jo-Lan, so they were equally good.
The fight took about an hour. At the end both kicked at the same time and fell down onto the mats. Their fight was undecided. Axel and Lioness sat down and drank some water. Their breathings were unregular and fast. After some minutes of silence Axel spoke up," You´re really good" Lioness blushed a little bit. "Thank you, but it was a tie, so we´re equal." She smiled to him. "We should get dressed now. It´s almost 7:15 and it would be better if we´re on time", Axel said and stood up. He and Lioness walked back. Axel stared at Lioness again. When she turned towards him, he quickly looked away and blushed a little.
Suddenly King shouted through the aquatic center,"HAWK!!! Where is my laptop?! I´ll kill you!"
"Why should I know where your things are?", Hawk called back while he tried to run away from King who was really angry and chased him.
Shark came over to Axel and Lioness," Hey, dudes, would you please stop them? I tried it, but King nearly rolled me down."
Axel sighed. Almost every day King was angry with Hawk and came after him. They were friends, but they could not be in the same room for a long time.
Hawk jumped over the couch and hid there. Meanwhile Axel ran to King and stopped him," What´s up?", he asked his best friend. Normally King was a gentle giant who loves animals, but when Hawk was around he acted out of character.
"He had taken my laptop", King growled. "Are you sure of that, King? Your laptop is here, in the kitchen", said Lioness. King blushed,"Oh, sorry Hawk..."
"You see, I´m not as bad as you think!", Hawk said.
"Okay, we have to go now. Mr Lee is waiting for us", Axel said and went into his room. He put his black and orange jumpsuit on and met the others a few minutes later in the garage. They took the Slamma and drove to the Lee Industries Hangars.
Mr Lee was waiting for his five test-drivers. "Follow me, please", he said and they walked to hangar 16. The giant door opened and a silver and black jet appeared. Hawk was impressed and inspected the machinery.
Meanwhile the others were talking to Mr Lee," This jet can fly from Landmark City to Tokyo and back without refuel. And you five must fly from here to Tokyo and back, to realize this theory", Mr Lee explained.
After he gave the five friens some briefings they went into the jet and sat down. "Cool, from here to Tokyo...", Shark said. Everyone put his helmet on and Hawk started the engine. He rolled the jet onto the runway. Then it went faster and faster. A few minutes later they lift off. Landmark City became as small as an ant-colony. Hawk flew under the clouds, so they could see the mainland and the see. "Axel, would you check the barometers, please? I don´t want to fly into a storm", Hawk said and changed into the auto-pilot modus.
"Everything´s okay", Axel replied.
Half an hour later Shark asked,"Er, dudes, why is the sky turning so black in front of us?" Hawks face went white,"We´re flying into a thunderstorm!"
"Can´t you change our course? We could fly over the clouds", King suggested.
"That is not as easy as you think, such storms are coming as fast as they are disappearing later."
Suddenly a gust of wind shook at the jet. A lightning flashed at the sky and made the darkness for a few seconds bright. Hawk took the control handle and pulled the nose of the jet up into the clouds. A second lightning appeared and hit the jet´s back. The engine stopped and the electronic turned out. Slowly the nose of the jet moved down, they were into a free fall.
"Shit!", Hawk yelled and tried to pull the jet into a solid position. But it didn´t work. He began to sweat and did not know what to do. "We have to get out of here!", Axel shouted. Everyone took a parachute and tempted to get to the emergency exit. King opened the door and the wind blew in. Each one took another one´s hand, so they wouldn´t lose anyone. Together they jumped out of the falling jet and opened their parachutes just in time. The jet crashed into the dark sea five seconds later.
The wind blew into their parachutes and carried them away. "Disconnect your parachutes or we´ll fly till a lightning roasts us!" Everyone shook his head yes and disconnected his parachute. They fell into the dark sea, but that would be better than end as a roasted human being.
"Is everyone here?", Axel shouted against the storm. Shark and King were next to him. Hawk tried to get air, because he struggeled for his life. He couldn´t swim. Shark helped him and pulled him to the group. "Where is Lioness?, yelled Axel. Suddenly Lioness came over to them. She was just a few metres far away.
"Okay, what shell we do now?" Axel didn´t need an answer. A giant wave built up in front of the five teens. It was about 2 metres high and buried Axel, Lioness, Shark, Hawk and King under itself. Everyone thought that it would be their sure death...
