No More Fear
I went a little Kong, and they put me in the zoo. But now I'm back cause there was more for me to do.
"Do you two maggots have something to say to the whole toon?" Drill Seargent Norris yelled up into the faces of the new recruits.
"No Drill Seargent!" they barked back.
"Get on your faces and push, and I want to hear some conversation, or everybody will push."
The newbies knew Norris was no nonsense so they talked while they pushed.
"So why did you join up, Gutierrez?"
"Aliens killed my whole Barrio."
"What about you Chapman?"
" Call me Chappy, they scared me."
"They scare everyone, they're eight feet tall."
"No, they scared me in front of my girlfriend. Look I was state in wrestling, track, football, hell even chess. I box light heavy 23 and 0. Noone scares me, they terrified me and Jen saw it. How can she ever feel safe again knowing they are out there, and her man is scared of em'? No every single overlord has to die."
"That won't get em all Chappy."
"It will when we go to their planet, next, and kill everyone of them."
"Recover," Norris yelled before continuing, "Chapman front, your the new toon leader!"
Comments (5 so far!)
Chappy gets a promotion, nice. He did just give his resumé to the platoon leader, with his intent to kill them all, so...
And we have names! Chappy and Jen. Noted.

Love how you took my pivot from yes to no in the last story and ran with the NO. I'm feeling a bit more of a world fleshing out now. And names!!!

In all the stuff my bestie, also known as Elsha Hawk, and I have written together the only name she just jumped up with, and I might add, one of the coolest, is Esbin Drey. I was going to just wait and see if she would ever just name em' but i felt that if I waited any longer...you know what maybe it is just that my internal clock is a liitle ahead of Elsha's and I am naming them too early.....oh the indecision.

I haven't read the whole series yet, but this is a cool twist on a classic scene. Definitely got me wanting to know more.
