I saw the Jedi trying to use their Force powers to help in the conflict but the rest of us weren't able to do much during the space battle. The fight ended when Gaia was subsumed by a tremendous white and blue light that some how let her absorb all of the Dark Phoenix's energies.
Gaia glowed with the brightness of a small star. Weird red and white energies swirled around her, apparently struggling with one another. Suddenly the energies expanded rapidly, surrounding our ship and almost engulfing Earth. Then they crashed back in on Gaia and her body grew to the size of the moon. Her face was calm, almost beatific. She held up her arms and in her left hand was a giant flaming red bird and in her right was a glowing white eagle.
The giant Gaia brought her hands together and the white bird ate the red bird and then exploded into twisting trails of energies. Gaia's body rapidly shrank back to normal size. She wasn't moving. Mace Windu flew the ship rapidly to her side and we brought her on board. Then we picked up Jean's limp body. Warren rushed to her side, but Jean did not awaken.
"We should go back to Earth," Emma said. "These two need treatment."
"You are right but we have to pick up Corsair. You left him thinking he was a hamster."
"That man is a pig," Maggie spat. "He deserves it. Leave him."
"Yes Charles, leave him," Emma said. "Go back to Earth now."
There was something about the urgency in Emma's voice that seemed rather odd. Her fingers started to fidget and her eyes couldn't decide what to look at.
"Is there something I should know about, Emma?"
Just then Gaia groaned. Hurrying over to her side, I tried to talk to her, but she wasn't responding. Finally she said, "Professor, I think I'm dying."
I looked over at Emma who I could swear had a smile on her face. "Fine. Mace, please take us back to Earth right away. We need to get these two immediate medical attention."
