The figure stepped back into a defensive stance, shaking his head. “I don’t want to fight you. We could work together - if we act fast enough, we could put a halt to their plans. Your information could prove invaluable.”
“I cannot. I must stop you,” Scuba replied, stepping closer again.
“What do you think will happen when you succeed?” the figure asked. “Do you honestly think that they will allow a plastic toy with control over the element of water to survive? They will end you. Join me, and I will fight for your right to live. To survive.”
Scuba hesitated, shaking his head. “My loyalty cannot be bought. If I were to join you so easily… my loyalty would mean nothing.”
The figure gripped his sword with both hands, staring at the blue Throwbot. Determination surged through him as he replied, “then I shall defeat you, Throwbot. And when I do, you shall become loyal to me.”
“You cannot beat me,” Scuba replied. “I have power over water.”
“Yes, I am outmatched,” the figure admitted. “But even still... if you defeat me, you can kill me. But if I defeat you… you join me.”
The blue Throwbot was silent for a long time before he finally responded.
They lunged at each other, and the fight began.
