Miller's eyes widened really big as he saw the wyvern popped out of nowhere.

"Gr-gr-gr-gr-gr-GREAT SCOTT!" he squeaked quietly and backed slowly away from the creature.

"Bless me and my soul!" Harvey gasped after he saw the giant creature and backed away as well.

"There you are, Evah." called Cranky as he and Doodles arrived to the group, "Oh. So you're all back to normal I see? Well just...great!"

The birds saw the wyvern that was used to be a green cat that used to be the wyvern to begin with. This made the birds realized from the beginning after they met pre-Special Force.

"Uh, Cranky?" shivered Doodles, "I think we're in trouble!"

"I said I didn't want any grass, Naeleen!" Ooqi said as he swatted away whatever was near his neck...

"..."

"...Naeleen?" He turned his head slightly, only to see that the little girl was still several yards away from him.

"Summer?" He whispered as he froze in place.

***

"You have something else in that bag I hope..." Gort said as he turned to Al.

"Ah, yes... of course." Al slowly squatted down to reach into his bag.

"Hey, it's a dragon!" Summer exclaimed.

The Wyvern abruptly snarled, then reared up on its hind legs and began flapping its wings to take-off, albeit a bit clumsily as its mind was still readjusting to its new, former body.

"I think we don't have time to look for more vials." disagreed Miller to Al and Gort, "But one thing we have time to do is...RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN!"

Miller ran away in a flash.

"Wait for me!" Harvey called out and ran in a slow speed with his cane helping him to run.

"YIIIIIKES! SAVE ME CRANKY!" Doodles jumped on Cranky's arms.

"Why are you running away? He's so cute now!" Naeleen said as she quickly walked up to the wyvern, "Awrn't you a cutie little wyverny!"

"Naeleen," Ooqi whispered, still frozen in place, "Distract it so Summer and I can escape!"

"I wish we knew how to train our dragon..." Gort pondered aloud as he waited for Al.

"Oh, I know something that can help with that!" Al finally managed to reach his bag and produce a vial.

He hurled the vial at the wyvern, where it crashed into the big lizard's flank and splattered all over its side. There was a flash of smoke, once again, and when it cleared, the Wyvern was now only about a foot tall.

"Good work." Gort complemented as he patted Al on the shoulder.

"Ooh! He's even cuter!!" Naeleen squealed as she picked up the miniature wyvern.

"Now's our chance. RUN!!" Ooqi screamed as he ran one step... before tripping over Summer.

Al couldn't help but puff out his chest a little bit, as though one of his potions actually doing what it was meant to do was a grand accomplishment.

"Are you all quite done?" Evah deadpanned.

"Well, Ooqi's escape is." Summer wisecracked from the ground.

"Well you look at that!" exclaimed Cranky still holding Doodles, "That big monster is now small monster."

Doodles got off of Cranky's arms and looked at the miniature wyvern.

"Lets have some fun with that armless-lizard." he whispered to Cranky.

They both agreed and flew over to Naeleen holding the wyvern.

"How are ya you little-lizard?" Doodles asked cheekily to the wyvern, "Feeling small? What a shame!"

"Aw, too bad! Looks like you're stuck being that way for the rest of your life with the girl!" added Cranky with a funny look and patted him on the head with his feathers, "But hey! At least you're less dangerous than any other dragon or wyvern put together! Put it there, scale-man!"

Naeleen looked at the wyvern, then looked at the birds.

"FLY MY... Uh... FLY FINNEAS!!" Naeleen said as she threw the wyvern toward the birds, "FLY AND BRING US SWEET REVENGE!!"

The little Wyvern let out a vicious, adorable little roar, then charged after Cranky and Doodles, shooting tiny jets of flame at them.

"Well... this is certainly entertaining." Evah remarked, still not even facing the birds or dragon.

The wyvern's flame made the birds become burnt black which made them horrified.

"RUUUUUUUUUN!" screamed Cranky to Doodles as they both flew away with the wyvern chasing after them while shooting his flames.

"But Cranky! We fly! Not run!" corrected Doodles.

"SHUT UP AND RUN...or...FLY! FLY YOU FOOOOOL!"

"Wait... what are you doing back here!" Ooqi demanded as he pointed at Evah.

"Oh please, let's not start that again." Gort sighed, "We're supposed to be helping her find a bunch of murderers. That's what's important!"

"But... but she... she's a witch!"

"You'd be surprised with how many people are witches..." Gort chuckled, before looking around. "Wait... where's Morry?"

"Can we proceed now?" Evah asked.

"I would certainly like to leave this particularly location." Al growled.

"Help...?" Summer asked from the ground.

"Ooqi, clean-up Summer and carry her, will you?" Al turned toward the younger leprechaun.

"Are you serious?!" Ooqi asked as looked at the Summer pieces lying about, "What if I miss a piece!"

"We can't leave yet; we have to wait for Finneas to come back from roasting the turkeys." Naeleen said as she smiled.

"Naeleen, we're leaving now. Call it back." Gort instructed.

"As soon as I'm finished with my revenge."

"I said NOW."

"Finneas!" She called, "Come here boy! Revenge will have to wait till after supper!"

"GAAAIIN WAY!" the birds arrived in a split second nearly half-burnt with some feathers still intact and landed on the ground.

"SAVE US!" cried Doodles as they both hid behind Gort.

"HE GONNA FRY UUUSSS!" Cranky added pointing at the miniature wyvern, "HIDE!"

"She was never all there to begin with, if you take my meaning, Ooqi." Al responded dryly to the younger leprechaun.

"What? I'm all right here!" Summer blubbered from the ground.

Evah just pinched the bridge of her nose in annoyance.

"How is this my responsibility!" Ooqi whined as he began to gather Summer.

Gort grabbed the scorched poultry and placed them on his shoulders. He then turned to Evah.

"My memory is a little foggy, but if I remember correctly, we were going somewhere." He said sarcastically.

"Oh uh...Right!" Doodles spoke up still slightly smoky from the fire blasts, "Evah, where are we going?"

"To Uncle Marty's house!" Naeleen explained as she hugged the wyvern, "I though you guys knew that."

"No Naeleen, we're going to help Evah..."

"But we have to help Uncle Marty too! Are we not helping people all of a sudden?"

"No, but..."

"But Uncle Marty doesn't count?"

No. This is more..."

"More important to you? How selfish!"

"People have died..."

"People die all the time! Family is more important than dying!"

"..."

"..."

"So we're going to see Uncle Marty?" Ooqi asked as he swung the Summer bag over his shoulder.

"Birds... come..." Evah stated blankly, turning around and walking away from the group...

Again.

Al shrugged and picked up his bag. He was ready to go anywhere but here.

"I hope Uncle Marty has a big house..."

"Oh yes Evah! We're coming!" Cranky responded.

The birds flew off of Gort's shoulders, but with half burnt feathers they had recently, they fell to the ground.

"Hey what happened?" wondered Doodles looking at his wings, "Did we loose our flying skills?"

"Oh bugger." groaned Cranky and looked at his wings, "We can't fly anymore since that lizard-thingy burnt almost all our feathers!"

"Looks like we're penguins now."

Evah sighed (again) and just kept walking. This was really straining her patience and she just needed to get away from these people.

"So, which way?" Al looked toward Naeleen.

"Forward!"

***

The Special Force™ departed from that place and headed down a road leading north. Since they had departed from the previous town at sundown, they did not get very far before having to stop for the night. The next day at dawn, the resumed their journey.

"So, refresh my memory..." Ooqi began as he scratched his head, "You're excited for this mission because you 'like meeting new uncles'."

"Yes, of course!" Naeleen said as she led the group.

"So... you've never met your Uncle Marty?" he asked.

"Nope!"

"And you've never been to his house?"

"No, of course not!" she replied, "That would be silly if I were at his house and didn't meet him!"

"...and how do you know where we're going?"

"Well, if it were the wrong direction, Uncle Miller would have told me by now!"

Summer was finally back in one piece, as Al had glued her back together the previous night, then dumped a paralysis potion in her supper to prevent her from moving again until morning. She wasn't exactly happy about that last part, but it was nothing new for those two, apparently.

"Wait, why are we even going to this guy's house? Don't tell me the mission was just for you to meet him for the first time..." Al groaned toward Naeleen.
