During all this, Haley has been in hiding, watching events unfold in agony on TV. Her words to the Phoenix just before he was taken weigh heavily on her heart: "No matter what, I've got your back. I'll stand by you. I... I'm ready to die for you if I have to." It all seems like a terrible dream! She needs to do something to take away this tidal wave of guilt and despair that she feels, but she doesn't know what. She's overwhelmed by so many things: shame, fear, anger. It's the anger that wins out."This isn't over!" Sparx vows, hot tears running down her cheeks. She retrieves her outfit from the dumpster, and begins planning her mentor's rescue. No matter how hard she tries, though, she can't see any way of doing it without hurting the soldiers guarding him... a thought she brushes aside. Drastic times call for drastic actions. Besides, she is really, really ticked."You won't have to. Soon many others will join you. . . and I'll always be here with you, Haley." His voice is gentle, but strong. "It's time for you to go now."
