Earplug Adventures: The Age of Stone (part 24)


But still the situation worsened for the Wonky SB. Not content of stripping him of his atomic boiler suit, Miles and Chester let rip on his god-like underpants…

…and the would-be avenger was forced to hide his nether-regions by squatting in a most undignified manner…

“No,” he wailed, “I surrender. No more. Leave me alone.”

“Go,” Magnuss bellowed in reply, “before we destroy you completely.”

“I’m going. I’m going.” The Wonky SB said hurriedly as a strange red portal opened behind him…

Then, with defeat etched in every step he took, the Wonky SB collected up the remains of his boxer shorts and wandered, unsteadily back into his unknowable realm…

But as he turned back to regard his nemesis…

…a force grabbed him and swept him away into a roiling cauldron of energy…

…which might have been a black hole.

For a moment the boys merely stood there in shock. Then a cascade of pretty energy particles descended upon them…

Of course, it was the Supreme Being in celebratory mode…

“Well done, boys. What a brilliant job. Now get yourselves back here.”

A heartbeat later they and Susan’s primary sub-unit stood at an observation window in the Rhubarb Crumble

“We couldn’t have done it without your powers.” Magnuss informed the Supreme Being. But he was being polite: obviously the Supreme Being knew that already. “And Susan too.” He added.

“Indeed,” the Supreme Being said as he regarded Susan’s primary sub-unit, “if she hadn’t stepped in at the appropriate moment, all might have been lost. Well done to you too, little green blob. Now I expect you’d all like to get back to the Museum of Future Technology for a celebratory discotheque. Well, be on your way: I think you’ll find the journey back somewhat shorter than the one here.”

But, of course, before the Rhubarb Crumble could go anywhere, there was the matter of returning the Weevil Trunnion to its place in the storeroom…

Then, the task complete, the first ship to come off the new Martian production line swept across the strange, ever-changing landscape…

…and blasted skyward…
