Buba’s little blue frame heaved with exertion, her beak open wide to pant. She looked up at Vikram from her position on the ground, where she had done a crash-landing just seconds before. “Swa?” she peeped.
Vikram staggered forward and jutted out the end of one crutch at her. “Again,” he hissed. “You have to get this right.” His voice cracked. “Go.” The Swablu chirped in alarm at the crutch and scrambled back into the air, her fluffy wings lifting her shakily off the ground.
“Aerial Ace!” Vikram shouted. Buba spiraled higher, then dove abruptly at a target they’d set up on an empty battlefield. She became a blur of speed and when Vikram blinked, she was gone. The illusion only lasted a moment; Buba appeared behind the target and darted at it with beak and claws. One foot snatched at the target edge, but barely grazed it as she sailed past.
