Styx the Black Rat but not just any black rat

The Krylma Leader

*A hissing sound can be heard from the pipe. A small snake slithers through pipe 42 and lands on the floor. The snake sees all of the ants (and, in particular, the Queen Rat-Ant). The snake hisses something up the pipe. A few minutes later, a dark smoke blows through the pipe, landing right in front of the snake. The smoke turns into the cloaked figure of the Krylma Leader who picks up the snake and looks around, with an armed snowzar*

Okay, who kidnapped my...Amy? Styx? You two kidnapped my friends?

*A hurt expression creeps across the face of the Krylma Leader. His face then turns to one of rage*

*DON'T YOU THINK IT'S HARD ENOUGH FOR ME TO MAKE FRIENDS WITHOUT YOU KIDNAPPING THEM???????*

The Krylma Leader

*KL has picked up the tied up rat-ant queen (despite all of the bites administered by the armies of ants). KL looks at Styx and Amy again, extremely sad*

This was just mean, Amy. Not even I sink as low as kidnapping someone elses pet.

*KL would continue but tears well up in his eyes. He turns and just whimpers to himself quietly. The fact that the ants are still biting isn't exactly cheering him up, either*

Ha! Those tears are whatever the equivalent of crocodile tears are in lizards.

Look behind yoooo!

The Krylma Leader

*Sniffs a little and turns around. Sees some terrifying monster that he won't bother to describe*

Oh my. A terrifying sewer monster.

*Turns to Amy*

What, so you're going to kidnap some of my friends, sentance others to being drowned, and murder me just for the fun of it? I was underestimating when I said this was low, Amy. This is almost as bad as when those Atlanteans were throwing stones at me just because I was a Krylma. They had no reason, it was just because I was a Krylma. I can still hear them. "Hey, guys, it's on of those Krylma spawn."
"How can you tell?"
"Only the Krylma and the Atlanteans can do that kind of biological technology, and we haven't done it in years. Just look at his eyes, he isn't normal."
"You're right, let's stone him!"
"Yeah!"

*KL sighs*

It doesn't matter, I guess. No matter how much I do with my life, I'll always be remembered as a supervillain, never as Minos.

*Ratcommander Jenner and squadron of twenty armored rats burst in from old rat exit grab ratantqueen*

*ten rats scurry out with queen, rest of rats turn at exit pipe and wait with Jenner at front*

*Several regulars from the F&F come outside to see what is going on. Most assume that it is some sort of hallucination brought about by inhalation of fumes from the Fuel that was spilt last week and disappear back inside again.*

*The rats scream in horror as three huge rose bushes, weilding thorns like machetes, spring at them and try to drink their blood.*
Did I get a chance to tell you that the sewer-roses have been mutated by the sewer chemicals and now are entirely carnivorous, and very hungry too...

Slipped your mind, I dare say.

The rats can't be screaming because they left the building some hours ago.

Carnivorous roses? How passé. smiley - winkeye Doughnut eating subterranean roses are a much cooler concept.

Though possibly less scary (unless you're a doughnut)

h2g2 is a very scary place for doughnuts generally.

"ten rats scurry out with queen, rest of rats turn at exit pipe and wait with Jenner at front" - if they turned at the exit pipe and did not exit, then the roses can still get 'em. smiley - tongueout

Believe me, there are no rats left. Styx and I have moved them to a place of safety and will look after them from now on. I hope that either your roses like eating monsters (or your monsters like eating roses).
