slowly poured Chemical 23 into the Virus Antidote.
"AHH!" The two beakers exploded sending glass into her
"Why don't you use non-glass beakers?" asked Mini.
"Because they melt!" Suzekiu wiped her face with a
towel. She opened up a cabinet and grabbed two more beakers, this time
with Chemical 54 and the Virus Antidote, and slammed them down on the
"Damn it!" cried Shensi. She ran into the room with a
print out. It showed the radar readings. Mini looked at the reading.
"What the hell?"
"I know, come on!"
"What's going on!?" demanded Suzekiu.
"I'll show you." Shensi led the way down the hall. They
all walked into the radar room. Suzekiu walked over to the controls.
"That's got to be a mistake." Suzekiu hit a few buttons
on the large keyboard.
"Looks like Kujin found us," said Mini.
"What!? That means we're gonna die!" cried Shensi.
Suzekiu stormed out of the room and walked into Magus' room.
"Wake up Magus!"
When he didn't respond, she kicked him over.
"What?" said Magus sleepily.
"Come to the radar room."
Magus got up to see what was going on. He walked to the radar
room with Suzekiu following with her arms crossed.
He looked at the radar and saw the dots that were Kujin's
Magus sighed. "There is something I have to tell you. You
remember Janus, right?" The women nodded there heads. "Well
before he died, I took control of his body, so Janus is dead but his
body isn't, you see?"
"So where is he?" asked Suzekiu," Is that what you
have been doing all this time?"
"Yeah. And he is hiding from a giant beast. If you leave me
alone, then maybe I can stop those planes."
"How?" asked Mini.
"Don't worry. Suzekiu, just keep working on that
Janus drew his long sword. It was very thin but extremely sharp.
The beast roared and an alarm sounded. Janus heard running feet.
"This.. sucks!" Janus ran forward and leaped. Janus let
his symbiont, a spider, release its legs out of his back. They clung to
the ceiling. Hanging on the ceiling, Janus swung his sword and a fan of
flames flew to the ground and exploded, driving men back from the
entrances. The beast ran over to the wall and began to climb it.
Janus dropped to the ground as the beast was about to get him. He
was met with plasma shotguns. He ran towards one of the virus infected
people that was reloading. He plunged his sword into the man's chest.
And grabbed the gun from the man's hands as he fell to the ground. He
ducked from the fire and took the mans cartridge belts.
More men came running to the entrance Janus was at just as he had
finished filling the chamber with plasma bullets.
Buuukthooou! A woman's head disintergrated into blood. He
"Got plasma?" Buuukthooou! Another man fell to the
floor. Plasma disintergrated the ground and rock walls around Janus. He
ran shooting and reloading. He stopped once to get a ten-shooter, a
six-shooter with that holds ten plasma bullets, and another belt full of
The path looked clear now so he put his rifle into a spider-leg
sheath on his back. He came into
a hallway with several doors.
He thought. Then took the one on the left.
"Oh my god. What is it?" Janus asked himself. He
stepped up to it and put his hand up to it. Chrome. It looked like some
kind of machine. He stated to circle it. On the right side was a flat
lift that ran vertically on a rail. It was at the bottom of the rail
DING! The lift suddenly shot up to the top of the rail. Two giant
pieces of what appeared to Janus to be over-cooked bread, shot out of
somewhere on this (toaster?) machine. Janus thought hard. Yes, he had
seen this thing before. It was called a toaster. On Earth they had never
been so big, though. BlackJack had owned one at his house.
BlackJack! Janus wondered how his old friend was doing. Then he
remembered the toast. He looked up, the (toast? Yes toast!) toast was
coming down on him. Suddenly a giant hand grabbed the pieces of bread.
It's a giant, thought Janus. He decided not to look at it.
Instead, Janus bolted to the door he had come from. He reached in no
"Damn it! The guards!" shouted Janus. The guards were
still looking for him, but now they had spotted him. So he ran the other
way. He had just barely started running when he saw a hunched over
being. It had five arms growing out of its back. White slime oozed down
his body in waves. It had its mouth open revealing sharp deformed teeth.
Some teeth were longer than the others and all of them were crooked
bending, this way and that. Its huge massive legs stomped over to Janus.
The arms of the creature raised and it spread its claws.
"Butt-monkey!" cursed Janus, "It's one of
The infantry man roared.
Janus pulled out both of his guns. "I hate my life."
