Piper's Secret Part 17The next morning Aerrow and the others were gathered in the hangar discussing plans. Ok, the wedding starts at four and a wedding normally lasts an hour and a half. Fifteen minutes before the end the priest should say something like If anyone has any reason why these two should not be joined in holy matrimony, speak now or forever hold your peace. Thats our cue. Are there any questions? Aerrow said. Timidly, Finn raised his hand. What if Piper doesnt want to be a Storm Hawk anymore? Aerrow glared at him before producing a picture from his pocket and placing it on the table. Everyone gathered round to get a closer look at the picture. What is it? Junko asked, peering at the black and white picture.Its an ultrasound picture. Aerrow replied.You dont mean.... Starling said gobsmacked.Thats right; Pipers pregnant. Aerrow said, confirming Starlings fears.
Piper's Secret Part 10Piper! Oh Piper, youre finally awake! Aerrow exclaimed. Piper looked dazed and confused.Whos Piper? Do I know her?Aerrow felt like he was going to cry; here was the smartest person on his team, asking who she was.Youre Piper. He whispered, fighting back tears.Who are you then? And who is he? She asked pointing first at Aerrow and then to the Dark Ace.Im Aerrow and he, he is just leaving. Aerrow explained, shoving the Dark Ace out of the door.Bye Just Leaving. Piper called after the Dark Ace. Aerrow brought his hand to his forehead in an exasperated fashion and then came back over to Piper. She didnt even seem like Piper anymore; just looked like her, as if some sinister alien had taken over her body and claimed it for their own. But Aerrow knew that deep, deep within, there was the real Piper, trapped and caged like a wild beast on display at a zoo. And he was going to free her.
Piper's Secret Part 8Stork landed the Condor about a five minutes drive away from the hospital. Aerrow gently lifted Piper out of bed and onto the back of his skimmer and sped off towards the hospital. The others waited on board the Condor and said they would come and visit tomorrow. When they reached the hospital Piper was placed on a trolley and rushed to a bed in the childrens ward where she was placed on a life support machine. The staff then asked Aerrow to leave as it was three in the morning but he begged to be allowed to stay. The doctors let him and when Finn and the others came the next morning they found Aerrow fast asleep in the chair by Pipers bed, fast asleep and holding her hand. From this scene it was more obvious then ever before that he loved her.Aerrow! Aerrow, dude, wake up! Finn shouted, shaking his shoulder.Huh? Where am I? Aerrow asked groggily.

Piper's Secret Part 16Piper sat alone in the bedroom, crying. The Dark Ace had just been to see her and told her that they were to be wed the next day. She couldnt even attempt to escape. She had been stripped of her staff and crystals and the door was locked and guarded by an entire fleet of elite talons. There wasnt even a window she could climb out of and even if there was there was a huge 300ft drop to face afterwards. Realising the situation was hopeless Piper flopped down the bed and thought of the lifetime ahead of her, married to the Dark Ace. Maybe it would be easier to kill herself?She was suddenly jolted from her thoughts by a maid opening the door. She was carrying a basket full of material, pins, needles, thread, a tape measure and scissors. Oh God, it was the dressmaker! The dressmaker placed a small stool in the middle of the room and ordered Piper to stand on it.
