"Jake, we have to go!"

"Go! We'll catch up!"

Peter nods and runs, but then, the building explodes. He turns around, seeing the flames. "Oh no…Jake! Tèa! Nikki!"

Nikki whimpers, closing her eyes tightly as she waits for the impact. …But it never comes.

She opens her eyes to Tèa in front, shielding them, her eyes closed and wings sprouted and glowing.

"Jake…look!"

"I see…Tèa, she's a guardian. Of both sorts."

"Tèa…"

Tèa opens her eyes and looks back at Nikki with a warm smile as she chuckles lightly. "I told you everything would be alright…"

"Oh, thank you…" she says with a returned smile.

Just as Jake gets her foot free however, they all hear a scream.

"Oh, no! Peter!"

"Come on!" Jake scoops up Nikki in his arms and they hurry to find their fallen friend and comrade,

"Peter! Peter!"

Not too far away, Peter lay trapped under some heavy drywall. He gives a weak moan before coughing up some blood, the debris having pinned his legs.

"Where are you? Speak to me! Peter!"

"T-tèa…" he calls out to her weakly. Luckily his friends are right outside the entrance where he's trapped. And when they see him there, they quickly rush to his aide. Tèa's the first by his side, realizing he must've run back in after hearing the explosion. "Unh…T-tèa…guh…"

"Don't worry. We'll get you out of here."

"Tèa…I…I can't…feel my legs…"

"It's okay; it's going to be okay. Nikki, Jake, give me a hand!"

Working together, the two girls struggle to lift the debris off of Peter, who cries out in agony as Jake slowly pulls him out.

"Owww…" He slowly sits up, groaning in pain. "Unh…ohh…"

"Let's get out of here."

They haul Peter out of the building, where he immediately tries to stand, but fails. "Ah!"

"Careful!"

"Tèa…unh…"

She gasps, catching him just as he passes out in her arms. "Oh! Peter!"

"We have to get him to a hospital. How do you feel, Nikki, are you okay?"

She nods, still clinging to the aussie.

Then a cop car pulls up and Tèa's parents step out. "Tèa!"

"Mom! Dad, what are you two doing here?"

"We heard about the accident." Michael explains as he walks up and hugs her. "We were so worried…"

Tèa hugs her father back. "We're fine, Daddy. But…Peter…"

He looks over to see the badly hurt officer. "Oh my…What happened?"

"Drywall. He must've run in to try and find me when it fell on him. He's hurt really bad. He…he can't move his legs…"

"Let's get him to the hospital."

She nods. "Mm-hmm."
