Author's Notes: Just a silly little drabble-and-a-half I wrote ages ago for LJ, but never posted here. I had intended to wait until I had a few others to go with it before doing so, but at the end of the day, I'm not much of a drabbler. One will have to do - unless I get inspired again.

Enjoy!


Sidekick

By Rummi


"Come, Sidekick! Evil is afoot!"

A reluctant groan and an unenthusiastic shambling of robotic feet were the only response.

"To the invisible car, Sidekick! There isn't a moment to lose!"

The answering bleep-bleep of the car remote also sounded apathetic.

"Sir?" a voice asked gently, sounding both patient and long-suffering. "Are you really sure this is necessary?"

Megamind broke character and turned. He rotated his entire upper half in a wide disgruntled circle in a show of annoyance. "I'm just trying it out," he said. "We're heroes now; it comes with completely different dialogue." He turned back away from his friend and posed dramatically.

"Can we at least talk about the name, sir?"

Megamind's shoulders bristled. He broke character again. "Code:" he said pointedly, "Villains have minions; heroes have sidekicks. Now!" He rooted one fist impressively to his hip while the other pointed high into the air. "To the invisible car, Sidekick!"

Minion sighed heavily. It was going to be a long transition.

End.
