The sights were worse than before. We had entered into some slave labor camp's shore. They were human but zombie like as they walked back and forth taking the candy hike. There was no point to what was being done. They just moved candy from one pile to another one. Brian, Blabber and even Glory Dear were all here. Each a zombie like drone. That's when we heard Anne's usual tone.
"Get away from me you eejits. This shite is bloody well...."
She was being zapped by some jelly bean guards with a cattle prod. That's when we heard from the so called god.
"Drazin thinks Drazin should have taken Drazin's chances with the pile of mush above."
"Bryan, what do the call this?"
"I don't know. A candy chain gang."
"Couldn't they just eat their way out?"
"Yep, Drazin should have stayed above."
"I think the demon is correct."
"Sadly, I have to agree with the dimwits."
Miss Priss and I backed up behind Pat, as wonder woman, half zombie Betsy flew over us like a bat. She whipped the jelly bean guards into shape. She even squashed a sleeping one like a grape.
"What do you call a jelly bean that's been mushed, Brandon?"
"You ruined my trip again."
Those two kept bickering away. The rest of us watched scary Betsy's display, as she landed before us with her hands on her hips. From what she said, I think she had too many rhyme time trips.
"You free the slaves,
From their mirror graves.
This will not do.
Anne and the rest were meant to remain true."
"Can't we just take seven years bad luck and be on our way?"
She eyed Miss Priss and I like she was going to send us some place to fry.
"My power is great,
You pointed out ones still mirrored in fate.
So thanks for that kitty.
To become a snack, it sure is a pity."
"Can anyone decipher what she is going on about? Drazin sure can't."
"Demon, I think we have to attack."
Drazin and Pat jumped at Betsy who swatted them away. She sure had power with her zombie display. Miss Priss and I tried to run but some jelly bean guards stopped our fun. The Beer Guys were snapped up too, still bickering and also having no clue. We were herded off toward a deep fryer, large enough that our situation was surely dire.
"Fleabag, why did you have to get Drazin sent to a land without meat, for you look like a treat."
"They eat cats in China you know."
"Bryan, it figures we'd end up in a land where everything is made in China."
"Cheap labor has its perks."
"We can't die, you can't kill a ninja turtle."
Bryan and Brandon were thrown into the fryer first. They shouted about melting with their final burst. And like that Betsy had killed the Beer Guys. She swatted them like flies. Next was our turn to feel the burn, when Betsy gave a yell and Anne damned her to hell.
"It's about time you got here, Cat. Now let's go you bloody eejits."
She did not have to tell us twice. We all scurried away like mice, leaving Betsy lying on the ground after getting hit with the cattle prod Anne stole from the jelly bean guard mound.
"Saved by the Irish, Drazin is never going to live this one down."
"What is going on?"
"Bloody hell if I know."
We ran from view down some dark tunnel with no friggin clue about what Betsy was trying to prove. All we knew is we had to move. Her zombie shriek sounded out all around and we could hear the drones following her wishes like a hound. She ordered them to hunt us down and make us frown. It would be funny if they were not going to turn us into a snack. I was not about to become a rib rack.
Wow, Betsy really went all zombie nut case. Things keep making less sense at a steady pace. But at least now we know where everyone disappeared too. Betsy's underground candy slave zoo. Who knows what else will come to pass. But the Beer Guys will be mourned by my little rhyming ass.
Later all, have a nice fall.
