DISCLAIMER: I DON'T OWN ATOMIC BETTY NOR KID VS KAT
Kat Kommander sat uneasily in his chair, tapping his claws on the arm rest. He growled silently to himself in frustration. He had just finished hearing Kat's latest report. Not only did he fail to secure the town for use as a beachhead, now it seems that, that infernal Coop has joined the Galactic Guardians! That would explain the frequent guardian patrols around the earth sector.
Kat Kommander jumped off his chair and walked over the to window overlooking his city. They were still recovering from the devastation Coop and his cohorts wrought during their last visit. Up until that moment he never really believed that Coop was that much of a threat that Kat portrayed in his reports, but now proven to be an even bigger menace that he could possibly imagine! If the Guardians are truly involved then this mission may be too much for Kat to handle alone. As much as Kat Kommander hated to do this he had no choice. He pulled out his communicator and hit the big red button.
"Yes, who is this and how dare you call me on this private number!" Maximus IQ demanded. "Oh it's you. What do you want?"
Dennis and Coop moaned as they towed an empty wagon that was once filled with housewarming gifts around town. Today the first wave of refugees arrived to Bootsville and as the representatives of earth the boys were charged with welcoming their new neighbors. At first they were excited but after the first three dozen houses their enthusiasm died down.
"Well that's was weird," Coop said.
"I'll say," Dennis agreed. "Who'd think that giant alien carnivorous plants hated water?" The last home they visited belong to a nice old lady with a rather large and impressive garden of rare and exotic plants. Dennis wanted to catalog the alien specimens until one tried to eat him. Coop, in a rather uncharacteristic move, decided to listen to the old elven sister and watered her plants instead of charging in to rescue his friend.
"Hey guys wait up! What have you been up to?" Fiona's asked as she caught up with the boys.
"Fiona!" Coop yelp with a start. "Oh nothing we're just welcoming the new neighbors."
"Oh yeah, Auntie Munson said something about a huge wave of people that just moved in seemingly overnight. It's really weird don't you think?" Fiona wondered.
"Weird heh, no not really. Lots of people keep moving here. Anyway we got to go. Still a lot more welcome packages we've got to give out." Coop and Dennis hastily retreated down the road. The boys felt guilty about ditching Fiona but despite their best efforts Robo-Betty refused to allow her in. Stating that it's against protocol to bring unauthorized personal into the base. After ducking behind some houses the boys activated a flash tube and jumped in.
Fiona tried to follow, but quickly lost sight of them after being blinded by a flash of light.
-Guardian Train Station-
"Welcome back cadets," Robo-Betty welcomed as they exited the flash tube. "You two are behind schedule. You still have 37 house to go more before the day is out." The boys groaned after hearing that. "Now, now no complaining. Here's the next group you will be meeting with." Robo-Betty handed them the files. "And remember 54 more refugees will be arriving tomorrow."
In addition to welcoming the new arrivals, they are also in charge of making the gift baskets. Which was harder than it sounds since each gift basket had to be tailor made for the species that would receive them. For example while most loved receiving flowers some found them offensive. To complicate matters even more not all of the aliens were humanoid. Some were insects now inhabiting the forest outside of town, and others were fish beings in living the lake and swamp.
"You know Dennis I never realized two hundred was such a big number," Coop complained as he stared at the huge piles of flowers, snacks, toys, coupons and stuff that they have no idea what for the gift baskets!
"I'll say," Dennis agreed. "Too bad we couldn't get Fiona to join. We really could use the extra help."
"Blame it in little miss regulation over there." Coop pointed to Robo-Betty but quickly turned away when she glared in his direction. Almost like she heard him. Not wanting to get into anymore trouble Coop quickly got to work when all of a sudden something crashed onto him.
"Ouch, that smarts," Fiona gripped as she rubbed the soreness from her butt. "Woah, what is all this?" She asked looking around.
"Intruder alert, Intruder alert!" the base alarms went off. Fiona soon found herself surrounded by a group of armed robot guards from Crushton. Part of the demands that B-1 had to allow Robo-Betty to work here was to give jobs to the old obsolete robots.
Robo-Betty walked up to Fiona then turned to Coop. "You left the flash tube open again!"
Coop gulped as he checked his controller. He did have a bad habit of forgetting to deactivate the flash tubes after using them.
"Coop what's going on here?" Fiona demanded.
"Explanations are not necessary," Robo-Betty said. "Your memories will be erased shortly."
"Been there done that," Fiona responded sarcastically.
"Wait, can't we find an alternative solution to this problem," Dennis pleaded.
Robo-Betty looked at the two cadets. Despite being a robot she did have feelings and overhearing what Coop said about her hurt. "Fine, I'll submit a request form to the Admiral and until I hear a response from him you will be employed as my assistant," Robo-Betty concluded.
"Yes!" the three friends cheered as they hi-fived.
"But if she compromises the safety of this base and mission," Robo-Betty pointed to Dennis and Coop. "Consider yourselves out of the Guardians!" she warned. "Now back to work!"
"So what are we doing?" Fiona asked.
"We're making welcome to the neighborhood gift baskets," Coop explained.
"That is what you two are doing," Robo-Betty interjected handing Fiona a pile of papers. "You, Fiona was it, I need you to make 500 copies of these reports and send them to the mailing room. Then get me a cup of oil. I like mine with a little grease."
"Hey just because I'm a girl doesn't mean I'm a secretary," Fiona complained.
"Please be quick about it, Intern" Robo-Betty said ignoring her comment. "I like to run an efficient base."
Even though they knew Fiona was going to make them pay, Coop and Dennis couldn't resist laughing at Fiona's predicament!
-Deep Space Maximus IQ's Citadel-
"Meow, merow, meow," Kat Kommander meowed trying to sound civil.
"I see that you still haven't evolved enough to speak properly," Maximus teased.
"Meow meow!" Kat Kommander hissed back.
"Yes, yes pride in our heritage and all that," Maximus scoffed. "So what do you want?"
"Meow meow meow meow!"
"Earth! Why would you want that little mud ball?" Maximus asked.
"Meow meow," Kat Kommander said.
"And why should I help you? Personally I would rather destroy that annoying planet!" Maximus grinding his teeth remembering all the humiliation he endured on earth.
"Meow!" Kat Kommander hissed.
"You're calling in that favor?" Maximus asked in order to confirm. Kat Kommander nodded. Maximus had to think about it for awhile. Personally he could care less about his debt, or the Kat's goals. Still their invasion of earth provided him with an interesting opportunity. For reasons unknown Atomic Betty seems rather protective of the earth and would most likely come to defend it. So even if the Kat's invasion fails, should they manage to take down Betty in the process would be doing him a huge favor!
"Alright I'll give you whatever you need," Maximus promised.
