Chapter 4: Eustace's Revelation
Courage was scared to go down the elevator that he had found in the so-called car dealership which he had arrived in.
"I know I don't like this, but I have to do it" said Courage as he swallowed a gulp of air and pressed the button for the elevator, "the things that I do for love."
Meanwhile, while Courage was waiting for the elevator to come up, Eustace was very impatient with Katz in trying to show the top secret newest truck model for him to use.
"Where's my new truck, your ad promised me that I would get to see it" said Eustace to Katz.
"Patience, patience farmer" said Katz as he pressed a button on a computer console he was next to, "your new vehicle shall appear soon enough."
Suddenly, the platform elevator was revealing itself after Katz pressed some console buttons and a fancy new truck appeared as it was being lifted up. The new truck was quite shiny and Eustace had a smile on his face for one of the first few moments of his entire life.
"Now that's what I'm talking about a truck!" laughed Eustace as he celebrated with joy, "When do I get to test drive it?"
"Oh don't worry" said Katz as he also heard the elevator which he and Eustace came on was coming down, "you'll get your chance soon enough."
Meanwhile on the elevator, Courage was sweating like crazy as he didn't know what the heck to do.
"Oh, I don't know what to expect here" cried Courage as sweat began to drip down all over his forehead and also his back.
As the elevator made a halt, Courage poked his head right out of the door and noticed that Katz was there waiting for him along with Eustace who was just getting into the new truck.
"Stupid dog, don't you read, no dogs allowed here!" cried Eustace.
"Yes, farmer, yes" added Katz, "there are plenty of features on the new truck, why don't you test a few of them out say target that stupid dog over there?"
"Now that's a good idea to me" replied Eustace as he began to look at the complicated console of buttons on the truck which Eustace didn't know what to push first, "I don't know what the heck to push first."
"Just pick anyone, they all have their advance weaponry attached to them, designed rightfully to take care of any sort of pests" said Katz.
"Well, when you put it that way" laughed Eustace as he pressed a red button.
Suddenly a flamethrower appeared from the truck targeting Courage and fired right at him which Courage managed to leap right over the flames screaming for his life. Eustace was quite enthusiastic after that display and began to press other buttons on the truck which revealed several rockets that fired at Courage who managed to do his best to dodge them.
"This truck's a load of fun!" laughed Eustace as he was laughing at Courage's predicament.
But while Eustace was having the fun of his life, Skulker who was prepared to leave No Where entirely heard some laughter along with Courage's screams of terror.
"Say, that sounds like my old client is showing off his high-tech vehicle to that farmer, I wanted that high-tech truck!" cried Skulker.
While Skulker began to head toward the so-called car dealership, Katz and Eustace were enjoying seeing Courage run in terror trying to dodge the lasers, rockets, flames and other sort of advance weaponry the advance truck was carrying.
"This is more fun than watching television!" laughed Eustace.
"And to think I wasted that time hiring a ghostly bounty hunter to target that stupid dog" added Katz.
"What's that?" asked Eustace who caught Katz's suspicious tone.
"Oh, nothing" replied Katz, "just keep on firing at that pesky pink dog."
"You're the dealer" said Eustace as he continued his so-called fun.
Meanwhile, Skulker had finally arrived on the scene while still invisible and noticed that Eustace was having the time of his life targeting poor Courage.
"I normally don't do this sort of thing" said Skulker as he then prepared some sort of video camera to reveal a picture of the truth between Katz and himself, "but I think this should be even more fun than the sort of fun the farmer currently has."
Skulker then used his camera that was installed in his high-tech suit of showing himself making a deal with Katz and also Skulker being the one that destroyed Eustace's original truck.
"What, you're the one who was responsible for destroying my truck!" cried Eustace as he turned toward Katz.
"I don't know how that footage got there!" cried Katz as Eustace was turning the high-tech truck against Katz.
"You did one thing that makes me mad, and that's messing with my truck!" cried Eustace as he began to turn the high-tech truck's advance weaponry onto Katz.
"Uh, got to run" said Katz as he ran right toward the elevator screaming for his life, and began to press the up button on the elevator, "come on, come on!"
While the elevator went up toward the office building, Skulker while still invisible provided Eustace with some help by pressing the button on the advance high-tech truck that would send him toward the ground level with providing rocket boosters.
"Say, this new truck thinks of everything!" cried Eustace, "Now to get that rotten salesman!"
As Eustace with the truck's rockets boosted up toward the surface, Skulker appeared right in front of Courage, but not as an enemy toward him.
"Don't worry dog" said Skulker as he appeared in front of Courage, "I'm not going to hurt you. I just can't stand my old client betraying me like that, I wanted to test out that cool high-tech vehicle, well against you. But let's just call this a temporary pact between ourselves, shall we?"
"Uh, okay" replied Courage as he was lifted up on Skulker's shoulder, to which the ghostly bounty hunter turned invisible with Courage to head back up to the surface.
As they managed to head back to the surface, Skulker and Courage began to laugh together seeing Katz being tormented by Eustace with the new high-tech truck he was using. The scene then ends with Eustace driving Katz away from No Where town by firing lasers at him.
