"Yeah you can chill with us" Bene said, stuffing his face. "Hey, if beach city is absolutely fucked with robots then what about the rest of the world?" Bene said as he laid back, "i bet the world here is amazing, shame its covered in robots." He continued, Bene threw some papers into the fire and looked up at the sky. "Best not to think about it" Pete added, "Yeah! You might cause a paradox or something" Frank finished it off with.
"I'm... I'm just gonna..." Felix managed to stutter out while staring at Peridot and looking back at the girl she was walking with before taking off. He pulled his coat tight around his body and took off like a bat put of hell which didn't last long as he made it about half a block away from where he was at before he started coughing like he was gonna throw up a lung. He started trudging along once he caught his breath but kept at a descent walking pace as he worked through town. He made it into a run down neighbor hood and walked up to one of the houses and started hammering on the door with his fist. What can only be described as the walking embodiment of white trash opens the door. "Felix! My main man! What's-""Yayaya, whatever, shut it."Felix interrupted and thrust a small bag into the guys hand then holding his prosthetic hand out in a cupped position. "Pay me, get your stupid truck taken care of, and don't ever make me have to come to this shit hole again. I've got too much work to get done to waste fucking around, so come on." Felix more or less barked the words at the guy who took a step back and quickly fished a handful of bills out of his pocket only to have it snatched out of his hands by Felix.
Felix counted the bill quickly, taking the time to face the bills and sort their value into a more proper order before taking a descent chunk of the pile. "I'm taking extra for delivery charges. And congrats on getting your GED, saw that post the other day, good job." Felix spoke quickly while stuffing the momeny into a pocket on the inside of his coat before walking away. "By the way, tell you wife I said hi when you drop off your next child support payment. And you were right, your son really does have that stupid grin of yours." He said without looking at the guy while lighting himself another cigarette as he walked. He was heading back to where he had smacked into a walking cartoon character to see if he was correct about being more fried than he thought or if his mind wasn't messing with him for once. He walked quickly and sucked down his smoke faster than he normally would, even when stressed, something like this had never happened before and he had to know what was going on. Something in the back of his head was itching for answers and he was fairly sure getting into his 'supplies' wasn't gonna help this time to make it go away.
Whipple opened the door to where Bene, Frank, and Pete were being delinquent arsons and burning shit.
Whipple sat down behind the three of them. His hood fell over his face. He wanted to strike up a conversation but he didn't know about what.
Like, what do you say. "Hey did you see my giant ass fireballs when we fought that thing" "How are you doing".
Whipple only now realized he had only talked to Mercy, Harold, and Nick the whole time he was here. Over a week with these people, and only 3 of them had struck up an actual conversation.
Whipple was now nervous and embarrassed.
He decided not so show it, picked up a nearby Mountain Dew (apparently you can find heaven in a bottle in any dimension) and drank the whole thing. Knowing he would feel sick afterwards, he scooted on to a broken pile of cushions and blankets to lay down.
He had successfully avoided conversation.
But now he was just sitting there. He couldn't leave appropriately without them leaving first. He pulled out his phone (they had micro usb chargers in this universe) and sat down. He put on his Synty headphones and put on the Kung-Fu Panda 2 soundtrack, just loud enough so everyone could hear.
"Nice... we got like, the whole crew here" Bene lazily said as he threw scraps into the fire and slowly drifted off to sleep. Frank gave Bene a gentle pat on the head, "Yeah, ever since me and my two amigos got here all we've done is fight, its good to know that we're fighting for you cool guys" Pete quietly said, meanwhile frank grabbed some of amethyst's chips and his wand "hey, you guys wanna see something cool?" Frank then carefully shot ink at chips, causing the to come alive and dance. But then frank shoved them in his mouth and ate them, thats fucked up right?
"It's just a cartoon, couldn't have possibly ran into something from a kids show." Felix muttered to himself as he walked while grinding the butt of his burnt out cigarette in his front teeth, almost sawing it in half. He stopped dead in front of a house he was passing when he realized there wa s alight coming from under the door that didn't seem to belong. He approached slowly as a powerful gust blew the door open Felix shielded his eyes as he approached. "Oh my god, I fell over dead in the streets. This is the way to the after life..." He stopped in front of the door transfixed and made a cross gesture over his body, something he saw he neighbors do a lot when he walked by. "In the name of the father, the son, and the holy ghost, hallowed be thy name. I beg for your forgiveness as I have lived a sin filled life. I destroyed what was given to me and ruined many others, but please, I ask that you see the good in me and grant me entrance to the divine so that I may truly know your love. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be world without end. Amen." Felix spoke quickly before he stepped into the light.
Alex watched the scene, feeling too awkward to offer any comfort. Whatever was happening, it wasn't her business. But... How was Peridot in this world? Alex sat down as she tried to think of How it would be possible. "Aw, jeez," she muttered. "I... I can't even..." Alex flinched as the door of a nearby house slammed open. Light poured from the entrance. "Oh, man," Pasta groaned. "This is like some Twilight Zone crap going' on." "What the flip is goin' on, yo?!" Alex shouted.
Whipple had already gotten to work. He was flying around the ruined lighthouse building some sort of... mud hut in it's place. He was using the pieces of the lighthouse that had rained down after the death of the behemoth and the pieces of the behemoth that had rained down after the death of the behemoth to build something where the Lighthouse used to be.
It was a sort of brick structure, like a castle. It had a ring of walls around a center courtyard, and inside of the walls were multipurpose rooms that could be used for any reason. Bedrooms, armories, etc.
Whipple sealed the bricks in place with fire and lava, and hoped that the pieces of the lighthouse and behemoth were as sturdy as they looked.
Felix kept his eyes closed as he stepped trough expecting to hear either the divine choir or the screams of the damned. He immediately fell flat on his face and got a mouthful of sand. He coughed and spit repeatedly as he tried to get up. "Son of a-" He started to say before going into a coughing fit and felt himself being picked up by someone. He instinctively pulled his arm away and back away while stumbling to his feet. He looked up at the people around him and started shaking his coat to get the rest of the sand off of him. He took a quick deep breath to collect himself and started rubbing his eyes. "So I"m assuming I"m not dead since this is the second time I've ran into you all, and I doubt there was something that struck us all dead at the same time. So I just have one question." Felix coughed and let out a sigh. "What the fuck happened, where the fuck are we, who the fuck are you and what the fuck is GOING ON?" He started out speaking loudly and just kept getting louder til he was shouting the last couple words. Felix clenched his teeth and his right hand tightly while attempting to make a fist with his prosthetic left hand.
