Okay, so I haven't updated for a little while, but the good news is that I'm off restriction! Now with that out of the way, read the story below.
Chapter 8: Escape, Again
The sound of breaking metal followed by several swears told Brian that Lane had survived, but his hoverboard and a Blarg robot had not. Several explosions and a loud yelp were heard as Brian landed. He picked his way through the broken robot parts and found Lane, holding his tail on the other side of a pool of lava. He leapt over it, examining Lane's tail.
"Don't focus on your tail; I'm sure this Ratchet character has some Nanotech in his ship. Let's go," He said. Lane let go of his tail and ran onto a nearby elevator, now cradling his broken hoverboard. Once they got to the top of the elevator, Lane found a real treat. A Gold Bolt, just lying on the ground. Lane grabbed it, smashed a few ammo crates, and looked behind him as he heard the roar of engines. There was nowhere to run. The drop to their ship was at least thirty feet, but he and Brian had no choice. A Blargian ship was closing in on their position. Oddly enough, Brian executed his flips with perfect timing, landing upright in the passenger's seat of Aphelion, but Lane ran and jumped at an awkward angle, causing his right leg to slam against the side of the ship before he landed on his head in the pilot's seat. A shocking wave of pain ran through his leg; it was broken.
"Man, this guy better have some Nanotech," Lane said, wincing as the windshield closed over them. He turned on the ignition, but remembered they were out of fuel. Wait a minute.
Aphelion's engines rumbled to life, and she chuckled, "I run on battery, you know."
"Hey, Lane!" Brian called. "I found some Nanotech and a giant wrench!"
What did I do good on? I don't really think I did spectacular on anything in this chapter.
What did I fail on? When the Blargian ship was closing in on the Lane and Brian.
