Hello! Today we continue with the eleventh part of book 3. Hope you enjoy!
After breakfast and introductions, the team left the mess hall and headed out the double steel doors and began to make their way to the west hanger some 400 yards away. The salty air of the island filled their senses.
As the last champion made his way out into the morning sun the heavy steel doors slammed shut. Startled, the group spun around to see two humanoid robots standing on either side of the entrance. As they stood perplexed the robots rushed them.
Shailan was the first to feel the sting of a steely robotic hand glance across his face. Instinctively he threw a low block as the robot attempted to kick his legs out from under him with a lightning fast sweep kick. Reisha rushed over to him and attempted to knock the robot down with a flying spin kick. The robot wobbled briefly and then turned to her. His stance widened and his arms rose to shoulder height ready for her next attack. She threw a quick combination of front punches at the robot’s head who adeptly blocked all of her attempts. Shailan sensing an opportunity kicked the robot in the back of what would be a human’s knee causing it to fall to one knee. He then launched a flying back fist to its head.
“Ouch! That freakin hurt!” he screamed as he grabbed his hand and stepped back “What the heck is going on?”
“I have no idea what the….” Reisha’s response was cut short as the robot punched her hard in the abdomen.
Brajjit came hurtling through the air, his left leg outstretched. The robot looked up at him as Brajjit’s foot neared the side of his metallic head. In a fluid motion, the robot grabbed Brajjit’s foot with his left hand and grabbed his upper thigh with his right hand and used Brajjit’s own momentum to send him crashing to the ground in a tangled mess.
Jonni looked over at Reisha and Brajjit lying on the ground then looked at Shailan. Without a word, both Champions rushed the robot. Simultaneously they tackled its legs and upper torso, knocking it to the ground.
At that moment Travour walked over calmly and ripped the robot’s head off.
As the Champions dusted themselves off and tried to figure out what had just happened they looked at Travour as he lifted two robotic heads into the air one in each hand.
“The first one was a bit of a struggle but the second one was easier once the four of you knocked him down.” he said with a smirk on his face.
Brianna just shook her head, “That is quite the welcoming committee. Come on guys let’s see what’s waiting for us in the hangar. “
As the group left the metal carcasses of the robots behind them and headed for the hangar an air of uncertainty mixed with adrenaline consumed them.
“Well, that just happened” laughed Shailan.
