The need to fight out of both self defense and righteousness burned within the other six girls, whereas the innate fighting instincts of their race stirred within the two biological Pantheon sisters.

And they leapt into action.

Strangely enough, the human residents of the area didn't seem to pay any actual mind to the scene at all. What's more only a small group of young kids, hidden within the bushes facing the whole event, beared witness to all this.

If given a second, anyone can give up and run
So just keep on walking
There's something only you can do
So that this blue planet doesn't lose it's light

"Shouldn't we help them?" The Asian girl in the green sweater questioned about the guardians.

"No," replied the bald boy with sunglasses. "We watch them and Dana, we still need to run a check on their background."

"They did stick up for the smaller girl," The African American girl with the red cap mused, "That ought to count for something."

She was watching intently as Kylie engaged in an unarmed fight with Cree; also if the cap girl didn't know any better, she'd say Cree might have it in for the blonde bookworm.

Seize the dreams you had!
Protect your beloved friends!
You can become stronger
Unknown power dwells in your heart, when its fire is lit
Any wish, it's true
Will surely be granted...show me your brave heart

Beth took a pose as though preparing to run on a track field. Then she suddenly pushed the tip of her left foot off the ground and sped towards her opponent in a burst of pink energy, attacking with a barrage of punches and kicks.

Haruna simply knelt placed her hand to the ground. At once, a gentle green pulse form around it and suddenly the hedges and bushes came to life!

Not every day is sunny, so sometimes
Even though a cold rain is falling, just open your umbrella
There's no map of how to live, that's why we're free
You can go anywhere
Run faster than the wind!
Aim farther than the skies!
You can meet a new you
Unknown courage sleeps in your heart, and when you realize
The downpour in your heart
Will surely stop...show me your brave heart

Theo sucker punched one down to the ground then rapidly turned with his fists covered in flames - fire that didn't even burn the skin of her hands.

"Still think we're messing around?" she snapped.

One of her opponents turned and fled.

Seize the bright tomorrow!
Protect the ones you love!
You can become stronger
Break that weak self!
Destroy the walls blocking you!
The warm beat of your heart will be your weapon
Believe in your heart

With enough force and determination, the eight guardians an their friends beat them back. Now they had to leave before something else happens.


After they were a good distance away from the portal, they stopped to catch their breath.

"Whew! What a work out!" comments Yui.

"Yeah, what was that all about anyway?" Questioned Beth glaring back behind her in the direction they'd ran from.

"What'd they want?"

"For you all to use your powers to their advantage!" Dana blurts out.

"I'm calling the cops."

"Oh sure," Zaira rolled her eyes, "I can already Picture the scene: Yeah, operator get me the police there's a gang of teen ninjas out to get us!"

Yui lowered her cell phone, "Point taken, no one will believe that."

"We can't just stand around doing nothing." Sara G gasped.

"We won't," Beth said grimly, "When we come back we're gonna stand our ground and demand some answers, something tells me our interaction in this world isn't over yet."

It wasn't, there would come a time when Beth would meet one of Dana's new friends and eventually it would lead to one journey that would test their courage, selflessness and sense of altruism.
