Junior Earplug Adventures: We Stand Accused (Part 24)


So attention was once more turned upon earplugs in the Solar System. Or, to be slightly more precise, a region upon the surface of Mars that lies in the vicinity of the Future Museum of Mars…

So, whilst the Chi-Z-Sox blasted towards new adventures…

…and everyone aboard were expecting a pleasant ride across the cosmos…

…and were disappointed subsequently when the Inertial Damping Compensators failed…

…which, in turn, really screwed with their subjective reality; volunteer search parties from the museum were forming up in the snow…

This was just as well, because Kraken Waiks, Billious Botner, and Narlden Haggard had reached the point where the cold was making them hallucinate. In fact they were hallucinating so badly that they truly believed that they had found their way into the museum via a back door, and had discovered a futuristic urinal…

…which they used with a hitherto unsuspected ferocity. Eventually Kraken and Narlden could squeeze no more from their previously distended bladders, and began stumbling away in wonderment at their surroundings…

“Golly, look at this, Billious.” Kraken urged his lemon-hued buddy. “It’s fab!”

“I’m not finished.” Billious replied. “And I think I’m a tad snow-blind too. Be my eyes: describe to me everything you see.”

For a moment those watching in the Museum of Future Technology were fooled by the hallucinogenic apparition…

And those watching on their TVs in the habitat zone…

…were forced outside…

…by a faulty optical smoke alarm that had mistaken the dark clouds of the approaching dawn for huge clumps of smoke. So they missed the arrival in Overspace, from a hyperspace wormhole, of the mighty K T Woo…

“Jeepers.” A Galactic Court judge exclaimed in surprise…

… “this is an unexpected development. If that ship opens fire now, we’re defenceless against its proton torpedoes. We’ll never find out if Magnuss and the others manage to save the abducted cable end. And what becomes of the three young earplugs in the snows of Mars will remain a mystery to us and everyone watching this court case.”

To be continued.
