The look on their faces says it all, sheer terror! Arrrghh! Can’t wait til Monday!
A second can seem like 48 hours!
Squeaking isn’t really their greatest worry. It’s the beans they had for lunch…
Oh well enough with the boys, they’re toast. Let’s go find out how Margo is doing…
The search for weapons and find – the whip handle! Maybe as good as a knife against a taker.
“OK, Boys, it’s time to call on your Creator.”“KORY!!!!”
“And now a word from our sponsor – Honest Percival’s Used Cars.”
Uh-oh. The closet is a nearly-always fatal hiding-place trope in horror stories. The monster/villain is sure to check there! MARGO! LUCIUS! Help is urgently solicited!
“Hey! This closet is full of GUNS! Jerry must be a survivalist!” click clack K-CHACK “Heeeere taker, taker, heeeeere taker, taker….” ;D
Rufus to Biff “Do you believe in Kory? Only he can save us.”
“But suddenly, thirty enraged donkeys battered down the door. They looked mean. And stubborn.”
How about the sacrifice gambit? “We don’t care what happens to us, but we are going to make sure you don’t take anyone else.”
He forgot to say!A bushel of wheat, a bushel of rye, who’s not ready holler I!
At least they didn’t go down into the basement… (See all you Lost Siders on Monday!)
Biff: “What do you got.”Rufus: “I got a whip handle and a sleeping chupacabra.”Biff: “Well that’ll just have to be good enough.”Rafer: “I found you.”Rufus: “Say hello to my little friend.”
Kory !!!! My imagination has been taken!!! The Takers are in my dreams! And now they’re coming for me! Hellllpppp…….
OK, kidding (mostly… I am having Taker dreams, the suspense is killing me ) Love your work. Oh, and a thankyou to whoever posted the LSOS link on Calvin and Hobbes during the Watterson chapter. I clicked and been hooked ever since.
rafer frost changed the concept and enjoyment of hide-and-seek.biff:“kory, where are you?! draw a mega monster or something!”
Rafer Frost turned on the lights, lumbered directly to the closet door, threw open the closed door and removed the mask. It was Margo in a Rafer Frost costume. “Ha Ha! Scared you didn’t I? Now let’s eat those grilled cheese sandwiches.”
Suddenly, Biff pushes Rufus out of the closet. “He, Frost! My life sucked before. Thanks for taking it. Here’s your reward!”
Heh, usually the monster hides in the closet.
When the door is stuck, they didn’t even try a window?
Still, if they can gain some time, a dea ex machina named Margo may appear.
Mad Jack’s Exploding Funbook for this intermission.
