CL Xana's Return-CH 18Ch 18: Quick Fix
A digital wind blew across the Lyoko mountain range. Valentine was busy clawing his way up the side of the mountain.
"Damn you Jeremie." Valentine continued his climb. "As soon as I get new gear, you go and rework it for everyone." Valentine examined the new plate on the back of his hand, which from it extended a bronze claw. "Though, I am grateful for the climbing claws."
"Lighten up Valentine." Odd raced past him, straight up the vertical side of the mountain on all fours. "You should learn not to take the life so seriously." Odd clung above Valentine.
"Says the man dressed up as a giant purple cat." Valentine grinned.
"Haha. Very funny." Odd was sarcastic. "See you at the top." Odd bolted to the summit leaving Valentine to claw his way up.
"Screw this." Valentine opened up his great wings and launched skyward, over taking Odd.
"That's cheating!" Odd yelled.
"I'm not taking you seriously." Valentine called to Odd
At the summit Ulrich held his katanas in a cross fashi

Ulrich circled William, blades at the ready. William matched Ulrich's pace, he too ready for battle. Yumi came around the corner of the Labyrinth. She noticed William and Ulrich's acknowledgement of a challenge and hid in the corner of the room. Ulrich and William halted and glared at each other, prepared for their deadly duel.
"Prepare Yourself!" Ulrich rushed toward William, the tips of the katanas lightly etching the ground with sparks. Ulrich leapt into the air and held his katanas in a scissor fashion.
William slashed his Zwiehander vertically, catching Ulrich's katanas with his blade. Both of them pressed force into their blades, trying to overpower the other. Ulrich and William held their ground for a short while before William twisted his blade to his side and rammed Ulrich with his shoulder. Ulrich slid backwards, dropping his katanas.
"Cheap shot." Ulrich jumped to his feet. The platforms within Carthage began to shift, th

Outside the factory the entire gang of Lyoko Warriors walked on the path to Kadic Academy.
"I can't believe Jeremie saved everyone." Odd sounded impressed. "Einstein really pulled through for us."
"Yeah."Ulrich laughed. "But if his story is true, then Aelita is the one to thank for pulling Jeremie threw it." The gang walked in victory toward Kadic but William hung back from the group.
He reached out, grabbed Valentine by his arm and pulled him out of the group.
"What do you need boy?" Valentine was annoyed by the intrusion.
"We are finishing this fight against XANA." William got a vile glare in his eyes. "You and me. We are ending this fight, I have a plan."
"I don't like the sound of this " Valentine didn't know what to think.
Inside the computer lab William sat at the supercomputer with Jeremie's note log, Valentine was standing next to him looking over his shoulder.
"You still haven't told me what we are

A few small tumbleweeds blew across the spanning Lyoko desert. A gust of wind picked up throwing a cloud of dust around the desert sands. The place seemed almost calm and peaceful.
The peace was quickly broken by Ulrich's Overbike, quickly followed by the Overboard, Overwing, and Valentine and William carried on Valentine's great wings. The team crossed the desert, closing in on the activated tower. Ulrich lead the way on his Overbike, followed by Yumi and Aelita and the Overwing. Odd and Sam pasted the Overwing on their Overboard.
"We'll clear the way to the tower for you ladies." Odd winked at Yumi and Aelita.
"Hey!" Sam slapped Odd. "You're mine."
Valentine flew past everyone and caught up with Ulrich. "Can I stick with you? Less crazy that way."
Ulrich smiled and nodded at Valentine.
"Don't get too comfortable guys." Jeremie warned. "XANA's got troops up ahead."
Ulrich and Valentine looked ahead to see two Tarantulas, four Blocks, and th

It was the early morning at Kadic academy, small gray clouds hung low in the sky placing lighter colored patches in the night. Jeremie was rapidly typing at his computer, working like a lotus bug. He took off his glasses and rubbed his eyes. He had lost track of time. Jeremie looked at the clock, five to five.
"Perfect " Jeremie sarcastically commented, "Another sleepless night." He got up from the computer and headed out into the hall. Jeremie entered the restroom and ran into Valentine, who just finished getting dressed.
"Good morning Jeremie." Valentine greeted.
"Good morning " Jeremie replied half asleep as he walked over to the sink.
"I didn't know you got up at this hour." Valentine commented as he joined Jeremie at the sinks.
Jeremie washed his face, "I don't " he told him, "I just lost track of time."
Valentine was brushing his teeth. "Oh." he said through toothpaste. Valentine spit out the toothpaste and turned to Jeremie. "So you never wen

Jeremie was standing in the middle of the desert plain, Valentine taking aim for the kill, Odd standing around like a bum but having a plan that was impossible to read. Jeremie had his eyes locked on Valentine, for he was ready to place a round through him. Odd stretched his hands, revealing his black claws.
"So Einstein?" Odd began, "Are we going to do this the easy way?" Odd then extended all ten of his claws fully, "Or the hard way? You have five seconds to answer."
Jeremie looked between them. Valentine had his rifle armed and aimed at him while Odd rotated his wrist producing the click of an arrow being loaded in place. Jeremie could not take both of these sharp-shooters at once.
"Time's up!" Valentine yelled as he fired off another frozen round.
Jeremie reacted faster than Valentine and Odd expected. The frozen round bounced off his energy blade and headed toward Odd. Odd crossed his arms to active his shield but was a moment too s

The hunter was aiming for Aelita, Odd and Valentine were in the principal's office, William, Yumi, and Sam were watching the monitor in horror, and now Ulrich was devirtualized. Did X.A.N.A. finally win?
"Ulrich " Yumi gasped on the verge of tears
William slammed his fist against the computer.
"What happened to Ulrich?" Sam asked with concern.
"He was devirtualized." William yelled in anger.
"Is he gone?" Sam asked, wanting to know the situation.
"Normally no." Yumi was tearing up. "But with the scanners down, he he "
An alert popped up on the super computer.
"Output failure, data moved to temporary storage?" Yumi sounded confused.
"What?" William came over to the computer monitor.
"The output that is reported on the alert is the scanners!" Yumi was shocked.
"What does that mean?" Sam asked.
"Ulrich is in virtual limbo." Yumi informed them.
"Then we can bring him back?" William asked leaning next to Yumi.
"If we get

The Lyoko Warriors were having a meeting in Odd and Ulrich's dorm, discussing their plan of action for tomorrow's search and seizer mission.
"So we all know the plan?" Odd wanted confirmation.
"Yeah we track down Jeremie and devirtualize him, simple enough." William told Odd.
"Not that simple." Valentine corrected William.
"Right." Aelita agreed. "We need to find Jeremie first. Then active the lock pick program, which will give us a forty minute window of opportunity to devirtualize Jeremie."
"And when Jeremie is devirtualized," Yumi continued, "we need to activate code: EARTH from the lab computer."
"However," Valentine warned, "while the lock pick is active automatic devirtualization will be disabled. Requiring that one of us be at the lab computer at all times, ready to activate code: EARTH should anyone be devirtualized."
"Okay so there's a lot more to it than I thought." William admitted.
"Don't get cocky this time." Ulrich teas

The Lyoko Warriors were on a data extraction mission in Carthage. Aelita was accessing the Terminal, Valentine and William, who was riding his manta, on the lookout for mantas, and Ulrich and Jeremie were repelling creepers. Odd was back in the scanner room, devirtualized by an accident with the landscape, and Yumi was at the super computer in the real world, she was picked to run the operation from the home front.
"Will this take much longer?" Valentine asked scanning the celestial dome.
"No, not much longer." Aelita hoped she was right.
"Good because I can see newborn mantas about to hatch." Valentine reported.
"I'll get it." William raced off toward the hatching mantas.
As soon as the mantas hatched William dove through them, cutting each manta in two with Zweihander. William rode back over to the data platform.
"I am the man!" William cheered.
Valentine looked at him wryly and shook his head. "Show off "
Ulrich and Jeremie deflected a few shots from creepers. Ulr
