“Ugh,” said Perfect Sky, “are we there yet?”
“We still got 4,000 miles to go,” Bucky replied.
“According to my calculations,” Mr. Silva explained,” we have been traveling for two days, and we have one day left. So, we traveled 2,000 miles a day. We would have to double our current speed to get to the Meltene Desert before the Ice Prince gets there.”
“My powers can carry us this fast,” said UiPE.
“Then make us go faster!” yelled Perfect Sky.
“If I go any faster,” said UiPE, “I could pass out, causing all of us to fall to our deaths.”
“Wait,” said Purple Claw,” I have an idea.”
“What is it?” asked Tall Cactus.
“In class,” Purple Claw explained,” we learned that the Peregrine Falcon can fly up to 200 miles per hour. If I summon flocks of Peregrine Falcons to carry us to the Meltene Desert, we would be there in 20 hours, giving us 4 hours of freetime.”
“Brilliant!” yelled Mr. Silva.
“Okay, but I’ll have to sing to summon them,” Purple Claw stated.
“Everyone, cover your ears!” Slanted Fish yelled.
“HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL! WHO SAYS WE HAVE TO LET IT GO? IT’s THE BEST PART WE’VE EVER KNOWN! STEP INTO THE FUTURE, BUT HOLD ON TO…” Purple Claw sang.
“What the fudge was that?” asked Yujo.
“It was me singing my favorite song,” Purple Claw answered.
“That was stupid,” said Yujo.
“Oh, oh, CASH ME OUSSIDE, HOWBOW DAH!” yelled Purple Claw.
“Stop fighting!” Tall Cactus demanded.
“Guys, look! The birds are coming!” Slanted Fish yelled.
“Good, I can rest,” UiPE said with relief.
20 Hours Later…
“Guys! We are here!” yelled Bucky.
