Author's Note: I haven't really been able to work on this story lately, even though I'm on summer break. I was just recently in Texas, so I couldn't work from there. Anyway, READ!
Chapter 6: Where Have I Seen This Before?
"Those idiots took our Cyclotron!" Razor said. "Now how are we supposed to get downtown?"
T-Bone said, "Let's use our jetpacks to get back to the hangar, so we can get the Turbokat!"
"But we need to refuel it!" Razor said.
"Not a problem we need to worry about," I said. "The auto-recharge battery I installed should get her up in the air just fine." After jetpacking to the hangar, we all jumped in the Turbokat with fingers crossed. The jet got out of the hangar just fine.
"Gadget does it again," Razor said as he reached behind his seat to fist-bump me. "I've got Hard Drive on the scanner! He's headed for Pumadine!"
"Well nothing good can come of that," I said.
"On our way," T-Bone said from the front. Another secret: Before we left the hangar, I grabbed my prototype hoverboard. You know, just in case. T-Bone and Razor didn't know about that yet. I saw the Metallikats' car headed towards the new tunnel out of the corner of my eye, and lucky me, we were close enough for a drop.
I opened the bomb bay doors and jumped, saying, "I'll catch up with you guys later! I just saw the Metallikats!" I turned on my jetpack so I wouldn't go splat when I reached the ground and got my hoverboard into ready position, switching it on. I was close enough to the ground, so I shut off my jetpack and dropped 5 feet to the ground at 70 miles per hour. Man I hoped it would work. I launched my grappling hook onto the back of the Metallikats' car, and it pulled me forward and made me go faster than I'd have liked. But after pulling myself to the car, I hung on for dear life. My mini-cement launchers made short work of the missile system on the back of the car, and I slowly started to inch my way toward the driver's side door, where I could hopefully overtake the car and stop the Metallikats. I waited for a second to gain my balance before trying anything too risky. Yes, there are things that are even more risky than riding a hoverboard, hanging on to the side of a car full of criminals going over 200 miles per hour in a tunnel. I noticed the car was moving slightly to the left, towards the tunnel wall. As I almost came in contact with it, I leaned the hoverboard a bit and pushed it up the wall until I was upside down on the car. Mac must have thought I was gone, because he drove away from the wall. I jumped back down onto the hoverboard and hung on to the door for dear life. We were now out of the tunnel, but not out of trouble. I reached my Glovatrix up to the open window and launched a jet of pen ink in the general direction of Mac's face, effectively blocking his view. He lost control of the car and Molly tried to steer it back on course, but she failed and we swerved towards the opposite side of the road. I let go of the car and continued at high speed on my hoverboard until I saw a rope come down in front of me. I grabbed it and turned off my hoverboard as an explosion destroyed part of the tunnel. Before I was lifted back into the Turbokat, I saw Feral chasing an Enforcer jet with a faint blue glow coming from the cockpit. Hard Drive's plane launched two missiles at Feral's chopper. He evaded one, but the other hit his main rotor and he went straight down into (wait for it, wait for it) a truck full of manure.
From the seat in front of me, I heard, "Match Head missiles deployed." Two missiles launched towards Hard Drive's plane, and both of them melted the wings off. He plummeted close to the same manure truck Feral had landed in. I dropped from the Turbokat yet again to see if he was dead. I sure hoped so, but when I got there, he was laying face down in a pile of manure. I yanked him up by the collar of his jacket and punched him.
"That was for putting T-Bone in a coma," I said. I punched him again. "That was for putting us in stinking jail cells." I punched him a third time, causing a tooth to fall out.
"What was that for?" Hard Drive asked, half conscious.
"A warning. If you ever show your scum face in Megakat City again, I'll kill you with your own jacket. On second thought, let's make that a double warning," I said, punching him again, knocking him unconscious. I took his jacket and smashed his face into the manure pile until he was deep enough that I felt satisfied, and then I kicked him and walked to where T-Bone had landed the Turbokat. "Let's get Dark Kat and Viper," I said, throwing the jacket in the storage compartment of my backpack.
