"Now you on the other hand..." the commander glared at Summer.

"Oh come on Morry!" Ooqi sighed as he threw his hands up in the air.

"You can't hire me without her. We are strictly a package deal." Al stated in a stern tone.

The commander, who was still sitting on the ground, knelt forward and began to bang his head on the ground.

"Since the commander is currently... incapable of making any decisions," Gort said in an assertive voice, "I will use my power as proxy to hire both of you."

"Yay!" Summer exclaimed.

"Is there something wrong with him?" Al asked Gort worriedly, noting the commander's odd reaction.

"Besides being emotionally unstable? No. I don't think so." Gort replied.

"Emotionally unstable?" Summer asked.

"It means he's prone to fits." Al said.

"Oh."

"Well I think Doodles and I should be going right now." Cranky said, "Chow!"

"Oh, it's supper time already?" Summer asked.

Al facepalmed.

"I wasn't talking about going out to eat." Cranky snorted, "I was talking about going on our own business. And not be part of fighting on wars."

"It was nice meeting you two, whoever you are." Summer smiled at the birds.

"I believe the commander should consider sta--" Al started to say, before a distant roar drew his attention.

"What was that?" Summer asked.

"DRAGON!!!" a villager further down the street cried, pointing to the sky.

In the distance, moving toward the town very quickly, was a massive flying reptile.

The commander stood up quickly.

"This is our chance guys!" he yelled, "To battle!"

He went off wobbling toward the dragon's general direction.

Naeleen tried to grab the birds as she ran after her father.

Al simply put one hand on his hip, while adjusting his glasses with the other. He squinted at the flying lizard that was rapidly approaching.

"That's no dragon, you dolt! It's a wyvern." he declared confidently.

"Why does that matter?!" Summer exclaimed.

"Well, because there are a lot of technical differences between a dragon and a wyvern. For example, the legs--"

"Who cares about the legs! We need to stop it!" Summer snapped, before drawing her guns and chasing after the commander and Naeleen.

"Let go of us Naeleen!" Cranky ordered, "You're choking us!"

Ooqi and Gort followed after Summer, preparing their own weapons.

Al was about to follow, when he realized he'd forgotten his bag in the mercenary guild hall.

"Oh drat!" he exclaimed, before sprinting toward said hall.

Meanwhile, Summer was lighting the wicks on her matchlock pistols as she ran.

"FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, NAELEEN!" Shouted Cranky again trying to escape, "I SAID, LET US GO NOW!"

The wyvern had finally arrived and was now blowing fire at the village's outer watchtowers, setting them ablaze and causing the guards to jump for their lives.

"Do you have a plan!?" Summer yelled ahead to the commander.

"Attack!" he yelled.

Gort looked at him then back at Summer.

"Some explosives close to it should work!" he yelled, "You and Al try to get as close as possible! Naeleen, Ooqi and I will try to distract it!"

"Okay. You hear that Al? Al? Al!?" Summer yelled, stopping and turning around.

Al wasn't behind her, in fact, he wasn't anywhere to be seen.

"AL!?"

***

Meanwhile, Al had entered the guild hall, to find all the mercenaries knocked out or asleep. He stepped over the unconscious bodies until he found his bag, which had miraculously not been tampered with. Picking it up, he then dashed back toward the door and out into the street again.

***

The Wyvern then began setting some of the outlying buildings on fire. The few guards in the town were trying to shoot it with their bows, to little effect.
