"Grandpa, the watch is doing it again!" Ben rushed over to Max, Gwen, and Kevin, waving his wrist.
Ever since yesterday, the Omnitrix had been acting strange; it keep beeping and flashing its lights like it was trying to get Ben's attention. Max had said not to worry about it, but it was hard not to. Especially now that it was going into overdrive.
"Let me take a look at it." Max said. He grabbed Ben's wrist and began inspecting the watch. Minutes passed, with Max hmmmming and aaahhhing.
Finally, "I know what the problem is."
"What is it?" Kevin asked, mocking suspense to make it clear he was bored.
Max ignored him. "Simple," he said. "It's recalibrating."
Everyone looked at him.
"Recalibrating?" Gwen asked.
Max nodded. "Exactly. Like when you add a new program to a computer."
"New program…" Ben mumbled. Then, it hit him. "New program! New aliens! Sweet!"
Max nodded again. "I'd say that it'll be finished by tomorrow. Tell you what, tomorrow I'll drive us all out to the lake so you can test 'em out."
"Okay, I don't know about Ben," Kevin started, "but I have better things tomorrow than joining you guys on your little alien fashion show."
"Like what?" Gwen challenged.
"… Alright, I'll come."
"That's what I thought."
Ben was too excited to notice the argument. New aliens always meant good news… most of the time….
