Next thing I knew I was on my bike, heading for a basketball court .05 miles away.
There were reports of Meltdown in that sector, and I wanted the 1st crack at him.
I looked at the on-bike map: ‘Lat.5300 Lon.670.’ I was about a minute away
(That’s 60 seconds— does this rustbucket run on cheap batteries or what???).
Suddenly the ground exploded in front of me! I just had time to leap off my
bike before it exploded on contact with a… NUCLEAR TENTACLE???
Yup. Looks like I’ve just found my Meltdown. I skidded to a stop right in front of him.
Sure enough, he was at the basketball court. And he was mad. I wonder who he was
so steamed up about? “WHAT’S THIS? THEY SEND A ROOKIE TO CHALLENGE ME? ME, MELTDOWN, THE MIGHTY AND MERCILESS????” He roared. I guess he was mad at me. I instantly realized
this wasn’t going to be easy. He lashed his tentacles at me. I also saw that anger had clouded his judgment. Hmm. Maybe it will be easy. I quickly lifted my double- fire
blaster, but a huge tentacle whipped around it and snatched it out of my hand.
“I WAS HOPING THEY’D SEND STORMER HIMSELF TO DEAL WITH ME!!!YOU WILL PAY FOR THEIR ARROGANCE!!!! I JUST MAY LEAVE
THIS COURT,” He shouted, “IF YOU CAN DEFEAT… ME.”
