Part 2 Not even 10 minutes after hiding, a search party was out for them. But as astafan pondered what to do, maverick was already making plans. “When the day of reckoning comes, you and i will infiltrate the city, as you bring down chaos with you hellfire powers, I’ll be distracting the citizens.” This plan was good but astafan questioned “who’s gonna get cloud?” That’s when he showed astafan his bag of money as he stated “a mercenary has me covered”
As Electroshield was making potions and practicing his swordsman abilities, cloud had knocked on his door.”
Electro: oh hey

Maverick: dude, calm dow-
Electrosheild: that’s exactly why I’m not helping you. You just threatened to kill me if i didnt help you. I’m here to relax and kill who I’m told but I’m not going to fight for you or against you during this, you tried to start an uprising didnt you? You figure it out *closes door*
And just like that, with both sides without the help of Electro, they had gone home already planning and gathering materials to fight the war, as cloud gave her army gun’s and battle gear, maverick was already infiltrating the cloudlands to steal gear, and for astafan? He was at Electro’s house burning it to the ground..but he sho
