Anyways you can have your Dr. Pepper bath.
@TNTOS: The leaves are large, they're toy size. Possible? Possibly. Actually, it is possible, I'm pretty sure. And thanks for the reminder about NaNo. Gotta get writing...anyways, sorry for no Saturday update. I couldn't do much to help that though, could I? So, here.
Chapter Thirty-Eight: A Volcano, a Bulldozer, and Hero Factory
In Kaza’s front yard...
Kongu: This isn’t good!
Furno: Thank you Colonel Obvious!
Surge: It’s Captain Obvious!
Furno: Wow. I guess that’s quite a way for me to end my life. Finally realizing.
Vezon: Kongu! I’m gonna end this once and for all!
Vezon raised the arm.
Breez: Wow, thanks! Now we won’t hit-
Vezon brought the arm down quick enough to smack Kongu to the ground, along with Breez, who rolled out of the way.
Kongu: No! No! Don’t-
The Hero Factory sets landed in the arm as it came back up, tumbling down onto Vezon. Norik shot up besides them and positioned himself above Vezon, whom Iruini dropped onto. Norik then stopped flying and crashed into Vezon as well.
Vezon: GAH! GETEMOFFOFME!
The bulldozer continued onwards, going onto the street. Vezon grabbed the wheel and jerked it, taking the bulldozer down the street towards the neighborhood exit.
Iruini: Wait-who are we fighting?
Norik: Vezon and the Hero Factory guys!
Vezon: Man, this is confusing!
Vezon: AH! HOW CAN I PUNCH MY OWN-
Norik: ENOUGH INFORMATION VEZON.
Meanwhile, in Hawaii...
Alex: Thanks for the flight, Reggie.
Reggie (pilot): No problem. You got cash, I got a mildly legitimate pilot license to fly you around with.
Kaza: And that’s the kind of quality customer service I like. That’s honesty. I feel like I’m really getting to know you, Reg. Can I call you Reg?
Reggie: Sure thing. Alright, and we have liftoff! Who’s ready to fly?
Kaza: Oh-one last thing. We need to use the emergency parachutes to drop down into the volcano.
Kaza: Long story.
Alex: Well, we transform into Bionicle-like beings and we fight against villains to protect the world.
Kaza: You explained it like we’re the Avengers.
Reggie: Oh, I believe you. I’ve seen them before.
Reggie: No, I just noticed earlier your hand was a Bionicle part.
Hydraxon: Hmm...let’s see...okay...hmmm...
Hydraxon typed as fast as he could on the keyboard, trying to outdo a firewall.
Hydraxon: And...I just crashed the AC/DC website. Oops. Wrong key.
Hydraxon pressed one more key.
Hydraxon: There. I’M IN! WOO! I CONTROL eHarmony!
Zaktan: Hey, not so loud. I think Vezok could almost hear you.
Vezok stood right next to them.
Vezok: WHAT DID HE SAY?!?!?!??!?
Zaktan: Quiet! Okay Hydraxon, hook Hahli and I up.
Hydraxon: Hmmm...let’s see... “turn off automatic matching”...ooh, sounds good. Match...users...user ID...name...Hahli...Zaktan...and...THERE WE GO!
Zaktan: So...how often do girls check dating websites?
Hahli ran up.
Hahli: So...um...Zaktan...have you been on eHarmony lately?
Hydraxon and Vezok, whose ears had popped, shared a surprised look.
Lewa: And you’re sure that Kaza won’t mind us paying for some movies on the TV?
Tahu: Nah, we’re not taking his money, just his college savings account. Well, a small chunk of it. Now, there are some options...lets watch Friday the 13th.
Tahu pressed the button.
An hour later...
Tahu: WOAH! OH NO! NOT THAT!
Lewa: TURN IT OFF TURN IT OFF!
Lewa turned the TV off as fast as he could.
Lewa: Okay...that was close. That was the scary part.
A few minutes later...
Lewa: Okay, fair warning-no one turn on the TV for about an hour.
Makuta: Wow...we’re not doing much today, are we?
Makuta: So...where are your Barraki?
Pridak: Enjoying a day off, watching some horribly inappropriate roasting on TV.
Makuta: Man...the only dude with any moral left in this country is Ned Flanders.
Pridak: Tell me about it.
Back in Hawaii (see, I changed it)...
Reggie: Alright guys, we’re over the-WOAHONOWHATWASTHAT?
Kaza: Two prop planes...flown by Urohks!
Alex: Oh man.
Kaza: Looks like we fell into a trap.
The planes began to open fire on the heli.
Alex: ...and they have machine guns attached to the sides.
Kaza: We really gotta learn to rely on more human weapons.
Reggie: The helicopter might go down guys!
Kaza: Ummm...okay...Reggie, you take the parachute and jump. You should be able to go past the volcano and down to the island. We’ll do something else.
Reggie: But there’s only two parachutes.
Kaza: Okay, I have a solution.
Kaza: Well, I’m not too good at this, but...
Kaza leaped out of the heli. He shot down towards the volcano, then transformed mid-air.
Kaza: It’s K-Time!
Kaza’s helmet formed and he shot forward, flying crazily like he so often did. He barely dodged bullets from the planes, which he turned and launched jets of fire at, frying one Urohk and singing the other plane. As the plane neared Kaza, ready to ram him, he unleashed all the air power he could muster, causing the plane to get slightly out of control and hit the side of the volcano.
Reggie, no longer having to parachute, turned and flew away with a wave as Kaza descended into the volcano, and Alex floated down on a parachute.
Kaza: Now where is that Jewel...
Kaza landed on an outcropping, which he’d counted on, and searched for the Jewel before seeing it was on top of a stone pillar in the center of the room.
Kaza began to use his powers, but his suit wasn’t working. In fact, it was slightly warped from the heat.
Kaza: Ah, man. I need to become a Toa. Well, there are pillars leading to it...I guess I can hop across.
Alex came down on the parachute before getting snagged on an outcropping a ways above, on the opposite site.
Alex: Oh great. I get to miss out on the fun.
Kaza: Hey, turn back to your normal self before your armor melts.
Alex transformed to normal, his armor already somewhat messed up, and dangled there.
Kaza: Now, how to do this with no powers...let’s test the weight of these things.
Kaza picked up a stone and tossed it onto the first one, which shook, leaning slightly and starting to sink.
Kaza: Now that’s just peachy keen.
Kaza sucked it up and leapt onto the first one, kicking off as it fell forwards and landing on the next.
Kaza: Okay, okay. Scary, freaking out. Breathe slowly.
Alex: Don’t fall into the lava!
Kaza: Oh, thanks for that wonderful advice.
Alex: Someone certainly didn’t forget their sarcasm back home.
Kaza rolled his eyes and leapt to the next, then waited a second and jumped to the next as the one he was on began sinking. He repeated this process until all he had to do was jump onto the next and grab the Jewel.
Kaza: Wait-these are all getting lower. I won’t be able to get back up to the ledge-what am I supposed to do on the way back?
Alex: Jump and grab onto my feet!
Kaza: Yeah, cause I was always so good at Field Day.
Alex: No you weren’t, you-oh.
Kaza ignored Alex and leapt to the last one, landing on it and scooping up the Jewel. He stopped for a second to look at it and his head began to hurt.
Alex: What’s wrong?
Kaza’s vision blurred and blurred, colors and background mixing, nothing clear, until everything came back into focus.
Except in a completely different place.
It was a hill he was on. But he couldn’t move. The hill stood overlooking what appeared to be a battlefield. Kaza tried to look at his hands and legs, but they weren’t there-he wasn’t there. So he decided to simply watch.
Many Toa and other beings, including a few Urohk, were gathered there. Some held blades, some held ranged weapons, others lay there wounded, gripping only their arms or chests. Others were dead as blasts flew left and right.
White-Armored Toa: Guys, move, move! Charge!
After the powerful-looking Toa spoke, many rose up out of ditches and charged, firing blasts at their opponents, which included a variety of species. Both sides included Toa, Urohk, even Matoran. It was pure chaos as the battle raged.
A blue armored Toa was by the white, charging with him. The two looked like equals, simply. They wielded similar weaponry, which they used as quickly as they could. Suddenly another figure charged up, but towards them. He was tall, large, and-
The vision ended and real life returned faster than a heartbeat, startling Kaza.
Kaza caught his balance, as he had been reeling.
Alex: Are you alright man?
Kaza: I’m good, I’m-WOAH I’M LOWER!
Alex: Yeah! You have to jump now!
Kaza took a deep breath, then, clutching the Jewel, ran forward and leaped, shooting forward and up through the air, his hands clutching Alex’s feet. Kaza swung briefly, then dangled still as he held the Jewel in his mouth.
Kaza: MMM! MMMM!
Alex: Oh, you switched it to your mouth mid-jump! AWESOME!
Kaza: MMM! MMMM!
Alex: Oh, right.
Alex pulled Kaza up and Kaza managed to grab the ledge, hoisting himself and then Alex up, and coughing, the Jewel dropping into his palm.
Kaza: Wow. We’re never doing that again.
A few hours later...
Kaza: Five Jewels.
Alex: Yeah, five. So...only fifteen more to go, right?
Kaza: Yeah. That’s all the elements-that they bothered to make Jewels for. I think they went by what’s franchise canon plus Sugar.
The two walked off along the beach, towards the transporter, clutching the Jewel victoriously.
Next time: Will Hahli and Zaktan finally get together? Will Wal-Mart be demolished? Where will Alex and Kaza go next?
