Chapter Two, slightly edited from it's original version.Chapter 2*Crash*Zakk easily parried the huge creature's blade. Large, red, and spiky, with green tentacles coming off of it, the monster was truly a menacing sight. Back-flipping away, the blue and orange hero landed in the brown dust a few feet away and aimed his sword point carefully but quickly.*ZZZZZZAKKKKKKK*! Lightning streaked from it's blade, striking the creature. It fell on it's knees, but was already rising. Zakk fired again.*ZZZZZZZZZAKKK*! "ZAKK! Listen to me when I talk to you!"Zakk turned, and saw Swamper in the entrance of the training sphere."Oh, hey Sam. Didn't hear you. I was too busy frying him." At this Zakk pointed, and an arc of lightning erupted from his finger and downed the beast that was attempting to recover."Yeah, for the 50th time." Swamper retorted, then switched off the training sphere. The beast dissolved as the holograms disappeared."Actually, I've beaten him fifty-eight times. I was going for sixty.""Well, sorry to stop your streak, but we've got REAL work to do," Swamper replied."Like what? On this wasteland, the only thing we have to do is hone our skills till some stupid villain thinks he can take us on!" Swamper sighed. He had no idea what to do with Zakk. Always a live-wire... There was nothing he could do about it though. It was ingrained in the very materials he was created out of. Biosteel was a tricky thing. The Hero Factory still didn't know everything about it. The specific sound frequencies that could control it were common knowledge, but it was still an experimental substance. They were the first heroes to be created entirely out of it, with a third running through training spheres back in Makuhero City. Zakk was different from Swamper. While Swamper had been created without a hitch, a lightning bolt had struck the Assembly Tower while Zakk was being constructed. Somehow, this gave the Biosteel electrical properties, and Zakk soon found that he could control it. It seemed to affect his personality too. But they were still friends."Nothing ever happens here!" Zakk intoned in a depressed voice."Well, something happened today. An explosion occurred just outside our orbit. Something crash-landed on the swamp side, and I just sent out a science team to check it out. It's in a secluded area, but far from the scrapyard. We have to monitor their progress." The two heroes made their way to the command center. Bright lights and screens flashed from various points in the room, all surrounding the central terminal. On the holo-projector of this terminal, they watched through the eyes of the science team as they came up to the area the meteor impacted. It was easily seen. The burnt canister laid right in the center of a secluded glade of trees, an area used to grow Biosteel. There was just water surrounding the Biosteel glade. A large crack was seen near the bottom of the large cylindrical canister, and the symbols marking it made it obvious what it was."Hoo-boy. What are we gonna do with that?" asked Zakk."I have no idea. But," Sam here had a worried tone as he looked at the various screens, his green Biosteel skin illuminated by the light, "One of the team just went missing. It’s weird. His signal's still there for some reason." A red light still blinking confirmed that the robot's signal was indeed still strong.Suddenly, Zakk shouted, "Whoa! I think I just saw something grab another one of the sci team!" Sam wasn't sure if he should trust Zakk. He had an uncanny ability to see things that weren't there, but things that he wished were there. He also was a bit of a joker. But the screen showed the final member of the team looking around worriedly, his companions nowhere to be seen. His voice came in over the radio."I-I--I'm coming back guys. I don't know what happened, but I thought I saw something grab Fra--AAAAGAGHHHH!!!" And with that, the screen went blank. The visual link was lost.End of Chapter 2Also, Pic of Samuel Swamper!This creation was made before I had any Hero Factory parts, so I was trying to recreate what I saw in the pictures to the best of my ability, while still allowing for things like elbow and knee joints. I also didn't have any Bionicle peices, so what you see is entirely made of Ben10, Exo-Force, and Roboriders pieces. I may post him in BBC later.Review here.
