<Next time you think you can morph unnoticed.>

Permalink

<I am sure I am being monitored> Matirin says, but he curls up on the ground and wraps his tail around him and concentrates on a rushed bug morph.

Permalink

There is a brief fight and they take the area and land an armored helicopter.

Permalink

If the bug is informed he should unbug he will do so.

Permalink

Now works.

Permalink

Unbug. <Do you have the box.>

Permalink

"Yeah, over here." Box.

They are flanked by other helicopters as decoys, some of which provide cover fire, and zoom away.

<It is not even obvious to me what they wanted morph for>, Matirin says disapprovingly.

"Maybe they didn't want to tell you," Kalana suggests, when he is back on Anitami soil.

Permalink

<Well, of course not. It might have been obvious to me anyway. You are getting - more legible. Not perfectly so but tolerably so.>

Permalink

"Practice!" she says. "I can figure out some of the tail swishes now."

Permalink

Pleased tail-swish! <When we arrived we made the Mioleens so nervous with that.>

Permalink

"I bet, it's kind of intimidating."

Permalink

<You should see a Hork-Bajir. Terrifying and if they are not infested with a Yeerk totally harmless.>

Permalink

"Have you got pictures?"

Permalink

He does! On the computer.

Permalink

"Wow, spiky. What're the spikes for if they're sweethearts?"

Permalink

<Stripping the bark off herbaceous vegetation on their home planet.>

Permalink

"...seems excessive, but all right."

Permalink

<They are a designed species. An evolved one would likely have found it a bad tradeoff.>

Permalink

"Designed? By whom?"

Permalink

<Another species on their planet, called the Arn. They designed an ecosystem they liked and then a species to take care of it.>

Permalink

"What kind of trees need their bark spiked off?"

Permalink

<I have never been to the Hork Bajir homeworld. Analogizing from the sort of Andalites who would design sapients to maintain their genetically engineered gardens, they might have been showing off.>
