Over the week since turning his back on his tag team partner, Dash has found himself becoming a bit more unhinged. His hair was no longer kept, his face carried a scowl and his clothes were a bit ragged.
Dash: They doubted us Hello World! They doubted we would be able to save our future… But OHHHHH we showed them!
My master has finally done the needful. He was reluctant at first… but he complied. They all comply.
Hello World: Yes, Master Dackson. You will further save the future after your upcoming victory over Harry Chest.
Dash looks panic-stricken.
Dash: Upcoming? Harry Chest? Victory? But… I beat him already.
HW: No master, you only betrayed him.
HW: You will need to be victorious at the Classic Wrestling Pay Per View.
Dash: But I…
Dash looks at Hello World’s shiny hand and thinks back to when he previously used it on not only their opponent but on Harry Chest.
Dash: Yes… I shall achieve VICTORY!!
Dash Dackson puts his hands in the air, Hello World simply ignores the sudden outburst and pushes on.
HW: Master Dackson, I have taken the liberty of scheduling an interview with William Fields.
As if on cue, there comes a knock at the door.
Dash: Good, these past dwellers are about to understand how important the future is!
Dash swings open the door but standing there are four children in Halloween costumes. One dressed as a Vampire, one as a Clown, one as a Princess, and the other as an Alien.
Dash: Billy, you shrunk… who are your friends?
Children: TRICK OR TREAT!
The sudden shout causes Dash to become startled and also prompts Hello World’s eyes to turn red and what looks like 3 laser cannons to come out of various parts of his body.
Clown: Cool robot costume Mister.
Dash spots all the firepower now being brandished by his trusty robotic companion and his eyes widen.
Dash: H-dubs… relaxify.. I think they’re kids.
I believe Master Dackson is correct. These tiny oddly dressed beings appear to be children.
HW: Elimination mode disengaged.
Dash: Elimination mode!? Nevermind. Um, kids… are you here to interview me?
Alien: Trick or Treat mister!
Dash: If I had to choose, hmmm, I guess it would be a treat? It would depend on what type of treats and tricks we are talking about. I’m not gonna stand outside of the Trilonion Seven Building if you know what I mean.
The children blankly stare at the Future Fighter, while Hello World speaks up.
HW: Master, it would appear that these children are participating in an ancient ritual.
Dash: Dressing like Billy Fields and reminding me that no good comes out of Trilonion Seven?
HW: This ritual is tied to the holiday Halloween. We are required to hand these costumed children some candy.
Dash: Right… Candy…
Dash rubs his chin.
Dash: And that is…
Princess: Hey buddy, do you really not know what candy is?
Dash looks at her and rolls his eyes.
Dash: Of course, I do. It’s… an E-gerator in a Can. I don’t have those here.
HW: I am afraid you are mistaken; Candy is a sweet treat that is estimated to be the size of fun.
Dash: They measure fun with sweet treats? So oddy odd.
Clown: Just give us like a Milky Way or something and let us go already.
Dash’s eyes get wide.
Dash: Now they are demanding galaxies. That’s it… Elimination mode reengage.
Laser Cannons emerge once again from Hello World and he blasts a hole in the wall across the hallway. The kids scream and run away.
Dash: THAT’S RIGHT! AND THERE IS MORE TRICK WHERE THAT CAME FROM YOU GREEDY MINIMOPPERS!!
Billy: What is a Mini Mopper?
Billy Fields approaches the now open door. Looking at the hole in the hall to his right and a smoking Hello World to his left.
Billy: I clearly came at the wrong time.
Dash: That depends. Are you going to ask me about doing tricks for galaxies?
Billy: I um… wasn’t planning on it. Did you make that hole?
HW: Elimination mode disengage.
The cannons return to being concealed. Billy looks at both Dash and HW.
Billy: Right. Good luck at the Pay-Per-View.
Without ever starting the interview, Billy quickly leaves the area.
Dash: Hey what’s this?
Dash spots a Fun-Sized Milky Way bar on the ground opens it and takes a bite.
Dash: Wow! This is absolutely worth standing outside Trilonion Seven for!
