    An Unexpected Visit

    Post  General Pig on Thu Mar 18, 2010 4:57 pm

    Toussaint worked out on the hot day. Another sandstorm had hit, ending about an hour again; he'd been cleaning the sheep since. Their wool was orange with the cating of sand, as well as the house, and just about everything else. First he changed the muddied water, then the food. When he was done with the animals, he'd have to tend the house and do this and that. Aldéric was off at his school, and his parents, they were trying to have a good time. They left before the sandstorm, so either they were on their way, thought he could handle it, or were in an area where it hadn't come. Either way, he was on his own for this task.

    He listened to the occasional bleat of the sheep as he washed the third on he could find. It was not easy cleaning a lamb. Their wool was thick, very much so, it took a good deal fo time to get it together without matting it too much, or missing an area. They'd unmat it all when it was time to sheer them, but, he liked to keep their warm fur when he could, and while he could. He pulled back the sheep as it tried to step out of the tub he situatated it in. This one, was named Vince, after a friend that his parents knew years back. He was the sone of Yule and William, the first two that they had. Vine bleeted, his voice blending in witht he others.

    Toussaint glanced to the side and watched as they all walked around in little herds. One in a group, and the other ones in others. A few had strayed from theres to get a drink, some were eating a few, and one other was staring off, as if distracted by something. He chuckled at the young lambs actions and turned his head away, going back to Vince, the most important one, at the moment.

    KA-TANG! That was the sound of a Spidopod swiveling down into a farm. An ice cream cone shaped craft had just stuck itself into the ground. Point first. The cone shape seemed to burst apart forming long spindly legs. There were six legs into total and that held a large pod up. It resembled it's namesake. A spider, and a sleek, vibrant white one. It twisted around looking for it's target. Where was Toussaint? That Aussie had a job to do. And of course he would get paid a substantial sum, but Akago had to find him first. And a flashy entrance in a Spidopod made him seem pretty cool. The pod inched toward a boy who seemed to be playing with sheep. Please, don't let this farm boy be Toussaint... Chances are he was. Computer's never lie and he had been sure that he had gotten the correct address, he had found it himself, and his brain was too big to make mistakes that small. Hopefully, he would scare the crap out of the little kid. He had done that on accident a couple of times.

    The Spidopod had flown from his Arctic base to this location, it actually was a very ingenious missile transporting system that he had invented. It was useful in getting large machinery across the world. It was a cross between a rocket and something else that hadn't been invented yet. But regardless it was amazing. Great, now he was gloating. But wait... He loved to gloat. It was sort of his thing, you know how it is with people with gigantic egos. "And now, I the great IQ! shall find my partner in crime you will be some kid named Toussaint! Gee... He needs a better superhero name."

    But that was on the bottom of his list. As his craft stalked the young boy. Stopping right in front of him, it's gears grinding silently. Inside the cockpit was a surprisingly roomy area. It was a mess of cranks and levers and buttons and knobs. All of them extremely useful... Well most of them. Some just stuck a binky in his mouth. He needed one of those right now. They made him look menacing. But sadly, he had to wait till the next shipment in a few months.

    A light green flash landed in the field, a girl falling onto her knees and standing in one swift movement. A bandage was underneath her jumpsuit, just on her shoulder from where she'd been hit by a bullet. Fired by a baby. Gosh. I sound so weak, She got up, dusting herself off. Landing needs a bit of work,she thought, placing her hand on her neck and looking up towards the sky. Teleporting... I don't think I'll ever get used to it. LimeLight looked around. Her enemy should be here. Then she heard a crash, and looked over towards a field full of sheep. "There you are,"she growled beneath her breath, pulling her mask over her face to keep her identity safe.

    She started running towards the white Spider-thing, all the while hold her hands together at her side to create an electric charge. By now it looked like a soft yellow glowing ball in her hands. This would stun the machine long enough for her to destroy it. Maybe.

    After doing some training, she had figured out how to separate the deadly lightning bolts from paralyzing static electricity. Comes in handy right about now. She reached the machine and jumped up, aiming to hit it's side with the powerful static attack.

    Frantic bleats of terror sounded out as the sheep scattered around in their fear. Each and everyone of them ran, almost in circles in their confusion, and soon enough found refuge in an opening in garage of the house, that was also used as shelter for the animals. Few stayed outside still, too confused to even figure out where to go, their orange fur making them look like mounds of dirt running around with their magically grown legs.

    Toussaint, wet now from the splashing of water, looked towards the sorce of pandamonium. It was some kind of... six legged machine, cone shapped in it's body. It stodd just outside of the fencing, facing him with all of its enormous glory. He stared wide eyed at the contraption, something he hadn't seen before in his life, something he didn't know existed. What was this thing? This thing that decided just to... show up here for reasons unexplained. It reminded him of the many times that his brother had complained about living in the middle of the dessert, because it was the best place to be abducted by some madman with either a crazy contraption, or a chainsaw. Well, it was the ladder this time.

    For a split second he cursed his parents and his dumb brother for leaving him here, by himself, in a situation like this. But who could have predicted something as outragous as this? He felt like he was in some kind of story about a kid being persued by someone or another, these kind of things only happened in book and movies and articles of fiction. But now, it seemed he was living with this at the moment. It seemed as if these things didn't just happen in science fiction, if someone was daring enough to try out the stunt, as whoever this was, or whoever it was that decided to invade on the property for reason he could not grasp.

    His heart beat with awe inspiring speed, as he stared, his mind racing, looking for an explaination, and exactly what to do at this point. Run, probably, that seemed like the most logical thing to do. He couldn't move though, as he wanted to do, as he was shocked and stunned by this occurance. Normally, he would marvel at something as fantastic as whatever this was, but that task was impossible with the featured obscured by confusion. It might as well have been covered with intrails or carnage. Those features would probably complete the unmade picture that was, virtually, with them at the moment.
