I Was With When …. Chapter I I was with george in a small town that afternoon. We were playing horseshoes and we were betting on them horseshoes. As George leaned over the 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 and have a short nap. I looked back at the playing area.
I slammed down 5 bucks on 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 my winnings i screamed over to George to tell him i was going back to the bunk house. George told me to wait up.
We left the barn and ran over to see where lennie was. We both stopped straight in our tracks we saw something that almost made us faint. Chapter II In front of us stood lennie, he was standing over the slouched curley’s wife and was mumbling “I’ve done another bad thing..” We asked lennie what the heck he did. He just stood there looking at us like we were some alien from a diffrent planet. He just started screaming and ran off in the distance. I told george we had better tell the gang this.
We gonna get our hides whipped when curley finds out about this. A few minutes later when curley and the gang came over and saw this he said to george “You fat Son-of-a-*****” you killed my wife. I’m going to beat the living daylights outta you. George sensing curley’s fustration moved back a few feet. George stammered ” I didn’t kill your wife it must’ve been lennie, The crazy idiot must’ve did it.
he ran off when we ran to him “, ” i don’t believe you, you lying scoundrel’s ll’ pay for this'”. I shook my hand at George to tell him to run. We suddenly dashed off into the distance. I heard curley yelling at us 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 a tree as we dashed past it.
We were both frightened as hell, but we kept on running for our lives. Another 2 shots rang out. As we were running we spotted 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 glowing a deep red and looked like it was hollow.
i put my hand in and it looked like it just dissapeared in the glass. I withdrew my hand in fright. I asked george what it was, he replied with a shrug of his shoulders. We then heard shotgun blasts again from the outside but this time it was much closer than the other blast. George said ” We better dive in that whatever it 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 me and then it disappeared. I looked at my surroundings. I saw huge metal boxes in the distance and desert sand all around me. the sun was in the early east which meant it must be sometime in the morning.
I felt a tap on my 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 interuppted me. ” Let’s go and check them place out “. He started to walk, i followed along. A few hours laters.
The metal boxes we had seen earlier were not as small as before they had rised way over our heads and were huge. We saw people like ourselves all around the streets walking. Funny thing though they were wearing funny clothing that seemed to stick to their skins. We also saw sliding pieces of glasses in the openings of the boxes. We approached 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 strange language whichwe couldn’t understand. He took out a small black box and pressed a few buttons. he spoke “Je parle fran..”, He looked a bit agitated and pressed another button “Cing mun nay may.”, Clickhe pressed another button.
Finally he spoke again “Yes, Sorry about that it’s was my voice modulation device, what did you want”. I said ” Where are we,No actually what time is it “. He replied ” Your are in VarysBrook, the time is 4:30eta, 3046 “, “What is 3046? “, ” The year 3046, hey what’s with the funky cowboy clothing “. Confused with the previous reply we went on. Not too soon, two guards came up to us and said ” You are not citizens of VarysBrook, or of this time period please come with us “. Thinking finally there was some people who could help us was wrong. They locked us in the back of a small wagon-like moving object, And suddenly the two people gave us needle shots.
I conked out right after. Chapter V I woke up in the middle of a cell room. Probably not bigger than crooks room back at the ranch. Another one of those people came by and hit a few buttons and the the bars that confined me dissapeared. He lead me out of the cage and the bars reappeared. I asked him how did he do that. He threw a grunt at me.
I remained silent for the rest of the walk. We approached another place with a sliding piece of metal on the wall. It opened when he approached 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. I asked who sits in that seat. The seat rotated and faced me and the person i saw sitting in it frightened me. Chapter VI The man who was sitting in the seat was lennie.
I couldn’t reckognize him at first but after i saw his scar on his right arm and then i reckognized immediatly. He started to talk, ” Ah. I knew you’d come. You must be wondering how you got here. Or maybe how i got here, I can tell you this much.
1 minute back at the ranch during your period means 1 year over here. I’ve been here for 7 years believe or not. I’m no longer the crazy idiot who keeps on petting rabbits all day long… That dosen’t matter now. You must work for me now.
You will be one of my many servants that will serve me. Hhahaha. “. Seizing the opportunity i pulled the good-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 jump at the man behind me and tackle him down. I grabbed his strange looking machine that he had dropped and ran out of the room.
I was searching high and low for George’s cage until i heard a slight buzzing noise behind me. A thin shaft of blue light hit my left leg and i screamed out loud. i dropped to 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 in before i was hit by thoe shots. As i opened my left eye, i saw something that frightened me.
My left eye had a red cross hair on it and indicators on both sides of my eye. By thinking of commands i could manipulate my eye to do close up and xray functions. A man came up to me. You were very lucky. George got you here in time or you would’ve died.
I must tell you a few things. We barely managed to revive your eye. and your left arm and leg. We have implanted robotic parts in you left arm and leg and implemented a new FastBrain computer chip controller in the left and right hemispheres of your brain. Your movement ability is 1005Ls and power is increased to 150 tons.
I’ve already programmed all the needed knowledge available today.”. I felt funny though it was like i new every single word on the planet and every single language. George came by and said “You were bleeding like hell, so man. i rushed you over to some huge metal building and this man said this was a hospital so feeling relieved i said make him better quick looks like he dying.” The man goes i need 5 million dollars for the operation, I said i had no money and they said well we won’t heal him. I thought quickly and said he’ll die. The doctor said many people get killed every day or sent to his death by lennie.
I was going to ask who was lennie. But he left. Luckily though this doctor that saved you said he designed a new type of Umm.. ” Robotic Equipment ” said the doctor filling in for George. “Yah.
That it’s, well anyways he said it in some type of beta testing and he needed a tester. He said it’ll be free. At that in such a panic i would’ve said yes to anything. ” George continued ” I forgot to tell you how i got out, well you see when that man took me along this hallway, so i got pissed off and strangled him to death i ran along the hallway trying to find an exit when i see you slumped on the ground bleeding like anything, so i picked you up and brought you here.”. I got up and went up to a mirror to look at myself.
The Doctor commented ” You won’t see any metal parts in your body it’s all concealed. The Metal is a new organic mixed alloy so it’ll grow with you. Suddenly two men crashed through the door and started to shoot at us. Chapter VIII I dove to the ground and pulled George along. The doctor was not so fortunate, he was shot in the head and died right there.
I yelled . I jumped at the man standing closest to the door and punched him with my left hand, he went flying through the door. I picked up his gun from the floor and slid under a couch. Using the mirror on the far wall i aimed my gun towards it’s. My computer-aided reflexing caused me to shoot a perfect shot which rebounded off the mirror and hit the man.
I yelled to George ” Let’s get out of here! “. He got up and started to run i followed him out the door. We ran out of the hospital and ran to a nearby bar and dashed in knowing that if anybody followed us we’d be able to hide in the crowd. We took a seat at the far back. I spoke to George ” It must’ve been lennie! I really want to kill that idiot “.
A waitress that was serving the other table came over and pulled out a pen. She said ” What would you like to order? “. At the same time we both said ” A bowl of beef stew. “. She responded by telling us they didn’t have such a thing.
She said ” Maybe i can help. We have the Burger and fries special and the square-pizza combo or maybe …
