Chapter I I was with george in a small town that afternoon. We were playinghorseshoes and we were betting on them horseshoes. As George leaned overthe bench shot a glanceat me and said “Watch ‘ya plannin’ on doin’afterwards. .
. ” i told him i was going to hike over to the bunk house andhave a short nap. I looked back at the playing area. I slammed down 5 buckson the wooden betting table over player 1. I heard George yell and scream.
2 seconds later the player i bet on won and i won double. Content with mywinnings i screamed over to George to tell him i was going back to the bunkhouse. George told me to wait up. We left the barn and ran over to seewhere lennie was.Order now
We both stopped straight in our tracks we saw somethingthat almost made us faint. Chapter II In front of us stood lennie, he was standing over the slouched curley’swife and was mumbling “I’ve done another bad thing. . . ” We asked lennie whatthe heck he did. He just stood there looking at us like we were some alienfrom a diffrent planet.
He just started screaming and ran off in thedistance. I told george we had better tell the gang this. We gonna get ourhides whipped when curley finds out about this. A few minutes later whencurley and the gang came over and saw this he said to george “You fatSon-of-a-*****” you killed my wife. I’m going to beat the living daylightsoutta you. George sensing curley’s fustration moved back a few feet.
Georgestammered ” I didn’t kill your wife it must’ve been lennie, The crazy idiotmust’ve did it. he ran off when we ran to him “, ” i don’t believe you, youlying scoundrel’s ll’ pay for this'”. I shook my hand at George to tell himto run. We suddenly dashed off into the distance. I heard curley yelling atus but we couldn’t hear him in out fear of getting killed.
Chapter III When we thought we lost curley a few shotgun blast hit the side of atree as we dashed past it. We were both frightened as hell, but we kept onrunning for our lives. Another 2 shots rang out. As we were running wespotted a cave on the left hand side of the country road and dove in it.
Chapter IV Inside the cave was a thin piece of some type of glass. It was glowinga deep red and looked like it was hollow. i put my hand in and it lookedlike it just dissapeared in the glass. I withdrew my hand in fright. Iasked george what it was, he replied with a shrug of his shoulders.
We thenheard shotgun blasts again from the outside but this time it was muchcloser than the other blast. George said ” We better dive in that whateverit is or we’ll get ourselves shot “. With that he dived in the blank void. I jumped in after him. I saw a huge amount of swirling colours around meand then it disappeared.
I looked at my surroundings. I saw huge metalboxes in the distance and desert sand all around me. the sun was in theearly east which meant it must be sometime in the morning. I felt a tap onmy shoulder. I whirled around and put my hand around the person’s neck.
“Ack. It’s me man. George i not no alien. ” I released my hold. He went on “Whatever in that place may be “.
I started to talk when George interupptedme. ” Let’s go and check them place out “. He started to walk, i followedalong. A few hours laters. The metal boxes we had seen earlier were not assmall as before they had rised way over our heads and were huge. We sawpeople like ourselves all around the streets walking.
Funny thing thoughthey were wearing funny clothing that seemed to stick to their skins. Wealso saw sliding pieces of glasses in the openings of the boxes. Weapproached a man standing on the street block carry a funny round object. We approached him. I asked him ” Were’s here? “.
He replied in a strangelanguage whichwe couldn’t understand. He took out a small black box andpressed a few buttons. he spoke “Je parle fran. . .
“, He looked a bitagitated and pressed another button “Cing mun nay may. . “, Clickhe pressedanother button. Finally he spoke again “Yes, Sorry about that it’s was myvoice modulation device, what did you want”. I said ” Where are we,Noactually what time is it “.
He replied ” Your are in VarysBrook, the timeis 4:30eta, 3046 “, “What is 3046? “, ” The year 3046, hey what’s with thefunky cowboy clothing “. Confused with the previous reply we went on. Nottoo soon, two guards came up to us and said ” You are not citizens ofVarysBrook, or of this time period please come with us “. Thinking finallythere was some people who could help us was wrong. They locked us in theback of a small wagon-like moving object, And suddenly the two people gaveus needle shots. I conked out right after.
Chapter V I woke up in the middle of a cell room. Probably not bigger than crooksroom back at the ranch. Another one of those people came by and hit a fewbuttons and the the bars that confined me dissapeared. He lead me out ofthe cage and the bars reappeared.
I asked him how did he do that. He threwa grunt at me. I remained silent for the rest of the walk. We approachedanother place with a sliding piece of metal on the wall.
It opened when heapproached it. He dragged me in. He told me to sit down. I did just that. There was a big table with a rotating chair with it’s back facing me.
Iasked who sits in that seat. The seat rotated and faced me and the person isaw sitting in it frightened me. Chapter VI The man who was sitting in the seat was lennie. I couldn’t reckognizehim at first but after i saw his scar on his right arm and then ireckognized immediatly. He started to talk, ” Ah.
. I knew you’d come. Youmust be wondering how you got here. . Or maybe how i got here, I can tellyou this much. 1 minute back at the ranch during your period means 1 yearover here.
I’ve been here for 7 years believe or not. I’m no longer thecrazy idiot who keeps on petting rabbits all day long. . . . That dosen’tmatter now.
You must work for me now. You will be one of my many servantsthat will serve me. Hhahaha. “. Seizing the opportunity i pulled thegood-luck rock i’ve been keeping for over 2 years straight at lennies head. I hit right between his eyes and it dazed him.
Just enough for me to jumpat the man behind me and tackle him down. I grabbed his strange lookingmachine that he had dropped and ran out of the room. I was searching highand low for George’s cage until i heard a slight buzzing noise behind me. Athin shaft of blue light hit my left leg and i screamed out loud.
i droppedto the floor and another shot hit my left arm and another hit my left eye,All went blank. Chapter VII I woke up in a small room totally unlike the other rooms i were inbefore i was hit by thoe shots. As i opened my left eye, i saw somethingthat frightened me. My left eye had a red cross hair on it and indicatorson both sides of my eye. By thinking of commands i could manipulate my eyeto do close up and xray functions.
A man came up to me. You were verylucky. George got you here in time or you would’ve died. I must tell you afew things.
We barely managed to revive your eye. and your left arm andleg. We have implanted robotic parts in you left arm and leg andimplemented a new FastBrain computer chip controller in the left and righthemispheres of your brain. Your movement ability is 1005Ls and power isincreased to 150 tons. I’ve already programmed all the needed knowledgeavailable today. “.
I felt funny though it was like i new every single wordon the planet and every single language. George came by and said “You werebleeding like hell, so man. . i rushed you over to some huge metal buildingand this man said this was a hospital so feeling relieved i said make himbetter quick looks like he dying. ” The man goes i need 5 million dollarsfor the operation, I said i had no money and they said well we won’t healhim.
I thought quickly and said he’ll die. The doctor said many people getkilled every day or sent to his death by lennie. I was going to ask who waslennie. But he left. Luckily though this doctor that saved you said hedesigned a new type of Umm.
. . ” Robotic Equipment ” said the doctor fillingin for George. “Yah.
. That it’s, well anyways he said it in some type ofbeta testing and he needed a tester. He said it’ll be free. At that in sucha panic i would’ve said yes to anything.
” George continued ” I forgot totell you how i got out, well you see when that man took me along thishallway, so i got pissed off and strangled him to death i ran along thehallway trying to find an exit when i see you slumped on the groundbleeding like anything, so i picked you up and brought you here. “. I got upand went up to a mirror to look at myself. The Doctor commented ” You won’tsee any metal parts in your body it’s all concealed.
The Metal is a neworganic mixed alloy so it’ll grow with you. Suddenly two men crashedthrough the door and started to shoot at us. Chapter VIII I dove to the ground and pulled George along. The doctor was not sofortunate, he was shot in the head and died right there. I yelled .
Ijumped at the man standing closest to the door and punched him with my lefthand, he went flying through the door. I picked up his gun from the floorand slid under a couch. Using the mirror on the far wall i aimed my guntowards it’s. My computer-aided reflexing caused me to shoot a perfect shotwhich rebounded off the mirror and hit the man. I yelled to George ” Let’sget out of here! “.
He got up and started to run i followed him out thedoor. We ran out of the hospital and ran to a nearby bar and dashed inknowing that if anybody followed us we’d be able to hide in the crowd. Wetook a seat at the far back. I spoke to George ” It must’ve been lennie! Ireally want to kill that idiot “. A waitress that was serving the othertable came over and pulled out a pen.
She said ” What would you like toorder? “. At the same time we both said ” A bowl of beef stew. “. Sheresponded by telling us they didn’t have such a thing. She said ” Maybe ican help.
We have the Burger and fries special and the square-pizza comboor maybe you want to have our vitamin-strength pills or power capsules. “. I said we’ll have the second one. George interrupted me ” We don’t gotcash! “, I took out a magnetic card and waved it at George. ” All the cashwe need is right here! Doc gave it to me.
. “. George said ” That our cash?”. Before answering George’s question i told the waitress she could processour order.
As she left i said to George ” This card carried 4 trillionbucks. . We could buy a lot of stuff with it “. George shrank back into hischair.
As the waitress came back with our food. I gave her the card and sheran it through a machine she was carrying and then said ” Thank You. . “,Then she left. When George started to eat he said ” Good and fast service. “.
After we ate we left the bar and looked around. George pulled me into analleyway. Just as two of those men passed by on the other side of the road. ” Another Closey. .
. ” said George. A middle aged man approached us and saidare you the man who broke out of jail this morning. Without thinking aboutthe consequences about saying yes to the question i nodded.
The man saidcome into our hideot quick. He lead us underground into a building andstarted to walk in the hallway. We went down the hallway further and wentinto another room. Inside were an arsenal of weaponry with a group ofpeople sitting on metal chairs. ” Hey!, What are you doing here! ” said oneof the individuals. ” It’s okay, it’s the man being hunted by the RoP “said the man as he appeared from behind us.
” Oh it’s you. Okay come in “. When we finally got to sit down. The man introduced himself as ” My name isVarhch Jop, I’m the leader of the underground against Lennie group.
“. ” Weare going to have launch a full scale attack against lennie’s forces. He’sbeen treating us like dust for the last few years and making us work likehorses. We are going to overthrow him tonight. “.
” But you are only agroup of 4. . ” i replied. ” Maybe we only have 4 people in a group but we’lldo it somehow “. For the rest of the evening we talked about how we aregoing to attack and destroy the base and talked about details. After thelast few details were covered we began to leave.
A girl about the same ageas me and George came up to the leader and whispered something into hisear. The leader laughed out loud and replied ” Don’t worry, we’ll make itback safely. “. The girl gave a warning glance to the leader. Ignoring herhe said ” Let’s go now and let us have freedom once again.
God bless usall. “. We left and the girl hastily retreated to her room. Chapter IX When we finally trekked to the side of the base. We threw grapplinghooks over the edge and scaled the fence.
George having some difficultiesscaling the rope tried to climb the fence with his bare hands. Georgejumped off and yelled to me on the other side ” The fence is electrifiedand i can’t climb the fence with this here rope. “. Suddenly remembering myrobotic abilities i leaped over grapped george and leaped back.
The groupstared at me. The leader yelled ” how the hell did you do that “. Iresponded by telling them the whole story of how i did get here and how igot shot by lennie’s guards and how my body got replaced by robotic parts. The leader look down at the ground for a few moments. Then he looked at meand said ” My daughter has a half bionic and half human heart.
She wascoming back from school when she was shot in the heart. We rushed her tothe hospital just to get it repaired on time or she would’ve. . . ” He stopsfor a few moments and takes a deep breath.
Then he dropped the topic andtold us our positions. Chapter X We then headed toward the front gate. The skinny man put 2 sticks ofr-bombs on the door and blasted it. We ran through the door and into thestronghold. Suddenly as we entered the stronghold, hundreds of guards cameout and started to shoot at us.
Unfortunately 3 members of the group wereshot right in the head. The leader yelled a mercenary cry and startedblasting the guards. I pulled him down just fast enough to escape a shotthe flew overhead. The leader said “They’ve killed my 3 buddies!!!!!! I’mgoing to extract they’re skulls”.
I held on to him to stop him from tryingto get up. He punched me in the ribs in his attempt to struggle free, and ilet go just briefly, enough for him to get away. The guards stoppedshooting and locked him up. George was still struggling with the guardswhen he was caught and they conked him out with a rock. Lennie appearedbehind the molten pile of metal and started to laugh, He said ” Hahaha. Trying to kill me eh’??.
. . No Way you’ll do that to me! I’ll kill you twoby noon. “. He went over to george, ” Man. I thought you and me were friendsand now you betray me.
tsk. tsk. Out like a baby. .
. “. I thought he musthave seen me. That idiot was trying to taunt me to come out, and thenprobably kill me. I remained silent.
It seemed like an hour but finallythey went back in and i snuck out of the base without beeing seen. Chapter XI I returned to the underground hideout to study my new strategies. As isat down and poured myself a VSOP Cognac. The leader’s daughter came outand i stood up. She asked me where her dad was. I sensed my facialexpression change.
I lowered my head and shook it. She cried out ” No!,That can’t be!. Your lying. ” She ran up to me and started pounding on mychest.
I grabbed her by the shoulders and shook her. i said ” The guardstook him away!, they also got my buddy!. Control Yourself!. . I’ll think ofsomething!”.
She put her head on my shoulder and started to cryuncontrollably. I kept on reassuring her that i’ll do my best to save thembut she kept on crying and crying. When she finally regained her composure,She told me she was coming along, I told her it would be very dangerounsinside a fortress like that. She was determined to go in and save herfather so we stocked up with weapons and headed back to the fortress forthe final confrontation. Chapter XII We blew up the front gate and walked right into the foreyard we thenwent into the already blown up front door and blasted the second door. Wethen saw guards coming from all directions.
We took most of them down. Someof them went back to raise the alarm. ” We better move fast you betterfollow me. ” i said. ” No, To save time i’m going this way to the prisoncells. You go that way and take care of lennie for good.
“. Sensing her ideawas more ideal i took off in the direction to lennie’s office. Fightingthrough 20 levels of guards wasn’t an easy task but with my acquiredComputer-Aided-Reflexing it’s was a cinch. When i finally reached the door. I kicked it open and went in.
2 Humongous robots approached me and startedto shoot me. I jumped onto the ceiling and threw a few coins into themaintenance slot of the robots and they short circuited and failed. Withoutfurther thinking i shot Lennie. The shot hit him in the leg and hecollapsed on the floor.
He yelled ” Don’t kill me, I’ll reform myself fromnow on. “. That few seconds pondering over that question gave him the upperhand. He jumped at me with a survival knife in his right hand. I aimed forhis head and squeezed the trigger. The shot blasted through his forehead.
For that split second, All sound seemed to be silenced. All movementstopped. Then it was over, Lennie was dead. Thinking about the land wedreamed about together brought back memories but this wasn’t the lennie weused to know. I shook my head to clear the thought. A small voice indicatorfrom the telecom system said “Master Non-functional.
Base detonation in 1minute”. I ran upstairs and saw the three of them. All three were injuredfrom gunshot wounds. George seemed to be dying. He was delirious and had acold sweat. He managed to gasp ” I broke 3 ribs when i was blocking anexplosion.
“. I i picked up george and carried him on my back. I then wentto the roof and jumped to the ground i ran 50 meters and put down georgeand i ran back to the base i ran back to the 20th floor. I picked up theboth of them and heard the voice again ” 2 Seconds “.
I just managed tojump off the building and run 15 feet away when the whole buildingexploded. Chapter XIII I managed to bring all of them back to the underground hideout. I thentook George to the hospital and paid the fee and within 2 hours he washealed good as new. George said to me ” Man. Lennie that Bast*** is nowdead, and the town is free again.
” Chapter XIV After a few days,we managed to find a Time-Rip scientist. He said hecould bring us back to where we were. He asked where do we want to go. Ireplied 1930’s Era. Town of Soledad. George looks at me amazed.
Thescientist presses a button and a piece of glowing red glass appears. Thesame one that took us here. The scientist says ” The time rip that broughtyou here was a test i was performing a few years ago. This time warp willbring you back to the same place you came from. A few hours back of course.
“. George taps me on the shoulder. I turn around and say ” What? “. Georgesays “Tell him to send us back a week back so we don’t have to be runningaway from Curley when we get back.
“. I tell that to the scientist and heupdates the data. He asks me ready? I nod, then i walk towards Varhch andsay bye and walk towards his daughter. I asked her ” I don’t think i knowyour name ” .
She tells me ” Karen Vc “. I kiss her on the cheek and then iwalk towards the time-rip portal. Before we manage to jump in the fathercomes toward us and says ” How about us coming with you back to the 1930’s”. I look at George and he looks back at me.
I say ” Okay, That’s fine. . . you can see our simple lives back in the 30’s “. We wave at the scientistfor the last time and leap into the portal. A few seconds later we reappearback inside the cave.
Chapter XV We approach the town and everything was like it was when we left. Weapproach the ranch. And the boss comes out. You 4 the new workers here?Okay. .
We were expecting you a bit earlier. But your here and that’s okay. I winked at George. . . .
