I closed my eyes and relaxed, this was going to be a piece of cake. As I thought about how easy this was going to be, I drifted off to sleep. As I slept, we sped along heading for the home of the little girl’s husband to be.
Slap. I jumped up. “Why did you hit me? I just closed my eyes for a bit, don’t worry, I’m still here.” I said to her dazed by the slap I had just gotten across my face from such a little girl. “We are about to be attacked, you big head now wake up and get to work.” She said to me as she pouted. What she said hit me like a bullet, I jumped up and looked around then outside. Then I sighed in relief, I didn’t see anything. I laughed and fell back into the chair. “That’s not funny little one. You actually had me going for a while.” I said to her while patting her on the head, she just smiled, then suddenly she pulled her head down and rolled up as if she was hiding from something falling on her head. Crash… Boom!… I went flying through the air with her little body right behind mine. I landed and quickly moved so that she would land on top of me and not get hurt. “Well, that was some crash, I wonder what caused it.” I said, getting up and dusting myself off, holding her behind me as I scanned the area.
My question was answered within moments of me asking it, by a rocket heading right at Coco and me. “You’ve got to be kidding me! Where did that even come from.” I said, then realized I should be moving out of the way before it hit, seeing that my Nannies were currently off. I grabbed her and jumped out of the way rolling as I hit the ground. The explosion went off right next to us, sending us flying through the air, we hit the ground, and I covered her as debris came raining down all around us.
I turned, and I saw a group of heavily armed men standing in the distance, they looked a bit shocked at the fact that we were still alive. But I had a feeling they would be trying to fix that very soon. Which means it was time for me to get serious with them. “I’ll give you one chance to give up, and I suggest you take it or you’re not going to be around much longer to see what happens when you go up against me. Will 88 the most heavily armed member of the Brothers Will.” I yelled out to them with a smirk on my face. They looked over at us then talked among themselves for a while, then what seemed like the leader begin to speak. “Ha Ha, you think we are afraid of you, come on bring it, we can take you.” The person said, I didn’t know if it was female or male it sounded like they were female, but looked male, but then again, they were all purple with what looked like 3 arms each. So that little fact they didn’t seem very important at the moment, I thought then replied. “That was a bad idea, you should be afraid of me. In fact, you should be terrified of me.” I replied with a huge smirk on my face, I was going to show them who was the boss and I was going to go all out on them for laughing at me.
“Activate Nannies 100 percent!” I yelled out with a smile. “Nannies are currently in maintenance mode, please wait until the maintenance period has elapsed, or until any and all problems with the Nannie’s interface have been fixed. Thank you.” A soft female voice said, coming from me. And with that, I realized what I had just done, and I realized how much of a predicament I was in now. Not only did I forget that my Nannies weren’t working at the moment, but I just told the bad guys I was coming for them, when all I have is this stupid kitchen knife! “Oh man, what did I just do.” I said as I slowly picked up Coco, scanning the area for some places to hide while I thought of a way out of the mess, I had just gotten us into. But seeing that the ground on this planet didn’t have a defined shape, this would be a problem.
I looked around the vast flat empty fields all around us, then I ran for the wreckage of the transport to take cover while I tried my best to figure out how we were going to get out of this. “There is a forest two miles from here where we can take cover.” Coco’s voice said shocking me, but at the same time, she was right about everything else, so I wasn’t about to take what she just said lightly, that and this is her homeworld.
Now the problem wasn’t what to do for cover but instead how to get to cover. Seeing that we were pinned behind something, and the second I got my head up, they would shoot at it till there was nothing left. “What to do, what to do.” I mumbled to myself as I looked around at the burning transport piece around us. “The engines in the transport still works if you think that could help us.” She said again while holding on to my hand. This was yet again a solution to a problem that now possesses a different, even bigger problem. The one thing that could help get us away from the mess we were in was currently in between us the bad guys and lots of bullets.
“Well, seeing that you have had so many unusually good ideas to help us out, maybe you have one to get to the engine also.” I said to her as I tried carefully to peak over the edge of the wreckage without getting my head blown off. “The engine has its own power source, and connecting the blue and pink wires will turn it on.” Coco said while covering her head. This was very useful information that I just so happen to be unable to use at the moment, but I guess it would be asking for too much if she told me how to get to the engine also, but I had a great idea for that, one that would totally work… I hope.
I jumped up and then fell right back down so that I could see how many of them they were, and where they were. I saw that they were all close together, but the how many part. Well, let’s just say it wasn’t good for me at all. I looked at the parts behind me, grabbing anything that had a wire on it, then taking the knife I had I cut all the wires off. Then I cut holes in the soft part of the transport’s door that was in front of us. I ran the wire through the holes and wrapped them around Coco, tiring her to the door. I then kicked off the rest of the wreckage so that the only thing left to attach to the engine was the door and the part that was laying on the ground now. Hopefully the part touching the ground now would just slide and not turn over. However, the problem now was pointing the engine in the right direction, then getting it started without being pumped full of holes.
Good thing I couldn’t die, or we would be totally done for. I took the knife I had then reached my hand around the side of the door to the engine. I could feel the control cup that rotated the engine’s thrusters based on the direction the vehicle needed to go. The problem with this was, it was spring-loaded, and it would rotate back down automatically once the wheel was let go. And seeing that there was nothing left to rotate it up in the first place, I would have to hold it in place the whole time. I pulled my hand back around then stabbed into the engine to get to the wires. “I hope this works.” I said as I twisted the knife to expose the wires beneath.
I cut the two wires that connected to the engine’s power, then gave them to Coco. “Go ahead and start the engine when I tell you to alright.” I reached around the side of the engine with the knife in my hand. I grinned for a moment, then reached half my body around the side of it. “Do it now!” I yelled to her to connect the wires. I grabbed the engine’s control cup, turned it and stabbed the knife into it just in time. The engine started and sent us moving. I had gotten shot about fifteen times in that second it took me to turn the engine and for it to turn on. And as luck would have it, we still had a problem. We were going in the wrong direction, we were going north when we should be going south to the forest. However, the real problem was the forest was behind the guys that we were trying to get away from.
