|Temple of Doom, Shorty's POV
Author: Moonlight1234 PM
The title really explains it all. I recently watched the movie and hated how even though Shorty did a lot of great stuff, they shrugged it off. I will probably get a lot of flames, but I don't care.

Author's Note: MY favorite scene! And it is a little twisted up, because it's kind of more realistic.
I was held fast in this man's grip. He just smiled "Wait for Dr. Jones; be patient, it's a virtue."
I rolled my eyes. "What now you're a priest? Want to redeem yourself from being a murderous idiot?" I snap.
Willie looks at me like really, Shorty, really? I'm already regretting those words when he squeezes my neck a little tighter.
"I won't fall to my death," I tell him, but he does not respond; we already see Dr. Jones.
Dr. Jones looks at us, and it takes him all of two seconds to realize our predicament, and he grabs a bag.
"Let her go," He says threateningly, and holds the bag of fake stones over the edge.
"Be careful what you wish for," And then Dr. Jones throws the bag to the man. (Jones actually says that in the movie!)Is all the Chief says, and throws her forward onto the bridge.
Jones realizes the mistake he made, and glares at him. "Shorty too,"
"No, you see, when we form our new mine, we'll need lots of new workers, and he has experience that we'll need," The man smiles, and I kick him, running onto the bridge, but somehow, something hits my shoulder, and it begins to ooze out blood slowly. As if I needed that.
Then, Dr. Jones show me the knife I gave him, and saws away the left rope, and I nod, then wrap me and Willie's hands in the right rope. The bridge breaks, and we alone survive the fall, except the Chief. The Chief begins to climb up, and he tries to push Willie off in his was to climb up. Unfortunately, my free shoulder is my hurt one, but I use it anyway. I throw him too the crocodiles and help Willie up the ladder, then Dr. Jones.
Few weeks later…
We arrive at the village, and Dr. Jones gives the stone back, and I go to play with some of the kids. My shoulder is healing, and life is good. For now.
