"Way ahead of you." Flare said as flames burst from his boots and gauntlets, launching him into the air. "See? I have more ways to fly than just my sword and Flight Drive!" Flare yelled to the other Flare, eager to show off his true abilities, only to be nearly sidelined by a flying chunk of rubble. "Great. It's times like this I really wish Zephyr or Selena were here to help, weather like this is in more of their elemental wheelhouse. I mean, even Huky could at least help with his super speed to run around in circles, not that I'd need to tell him to do that in a situation like this. Or any other situation for that matter."
Back on the ground, Takeru stopped walking as he felt the winds began to whip and heard the hapless coffee shop staff's yelling. He wanted to just keep walking and pay no mind to it, but something inside of him felt he had to go back and help. With some thought, Takeru made up his mind, "Lunch can wait, there are people to save." Takeru said as he ran back to the funnel cloud, quickly donning his armor and firing launching himself into the heart of the storm with a burst of ice.
Inside the cyclone, Takeru ran from rubble chunk to rubble chunk, using his Wild Wires to grab the coffee shop staff as Flare helped gather the others. Without his hand jets or Flight Drive wings to help stabilize him, Flare struggled to stay balanced in the storm, but he also manage to gather enough of staff members as well as the to safely made it to the ground. Takeru quickly made an ice dome around the staff to help keep them from being sucked up again. "Just stay put, and we'll get you when the weather's clear!" Flare said before he and Takeru gave each other a quick high-five and fist bump. "Bahamut, how do you get rid of a tornado without air or weather magic?" Flare asked his armor. "You should try to heat up the cold downdraft in the funnel, that should destabilize it." Bahamut answered. "Great, shooting fire at stuff. My kind of plan!" Flare said as he ran back into the funnel cloud as Takeru helped hold him down in the winds with his Wild Wires. Flare aimed his hands up at the approaching storm and with a mechanical whir, they turned into twin cannons. Flare then fired twin jets of flame from them and into the heart of the storm. Unfortunately, the flames were quickly snuffed out in the gale. "Scrap, I used too much energy fighting against Other Flare!" He said before getting and idea. @Chita "Hey, Other Flare!" He called to the female Flare. "You look like you're full of enough hot air to stop this thing. Think you can blow this storm away?" He asked, struggling to stay stable in the howling gusts. "No wonder you got beat up by her..." Takeru said. "TIME AND PLACE TAKERU!" Flare fired back.
Meanwhile, Dr. Goatmilk sneered down at the heroes. "Like I'll let you all stop my storm that easily!" She spat before running back over to her weather machine and began cranking it again, firing more energy into the angry clouds and causing the storm to get more intense. Instantly, a torrential rain storm with cloud-to-ground lightning exploded onto the scene with the full fury of nature as two more howling tornadoes began to descend upon the city, each whirling and swirling with all their might in an attempt to blow away the city in one gust.
"All I wanted was a cup of coffee with my friend, is that too hard to ask?" Alpha Alpaca said, burying his head into his hooves before looking at Shade. "You got any skills in handling bad weather?" He asked the winged man.
