“This is an outrage!” Catarina howled as she was pushed into a holding cell. “Do you imbeciles have any idea who I am?!”
The policemen held tight as she tried to break free from their iron grip. She was then thrown into the cell, and locked up.
Right after she was pushed to the ground, Catarina stood back up and grabbed hold of the bars. Furiously, she tried shaking them.
“I’ll have all your jobs, you hear me?! I’ll teach all of you to imprison a poor innocent woman!” They all ignored her in favor of now leaving the station for their own lives.
For what felt like an eternity, Catarina ranted and raved about the injustices of the world. When it was proven that her complaining would get her nowhere, she fell back onto the dirty floor.
“Oh, why do bad things happen to the good at heart! If only there were some way I could receive some kind of payback!”
As if to comply with her wish,someone dropped down into the cell behind her. Hazarding a glance, Catarina saw a being she didn’t recognize.
With an unlit menthol cigarette in their mouth, they grinned rather evilly before saying to her:
Shark was still home alone by the time the others got back. He patted a spot next to himself for Sinbad to sit on.
Sinbad nodded, and let Marc lean on Harwood as he took his seat. Sagebear hopped up right next to him the moment he sat down.
“Anything good on TV?” Sinbad asked Shark as he proceeded to get licked on the face. Marc and Harwood took this chance to go upstairs and prepare a few things.
“Not really.” Shark then rolled over onto his back. “So I guess we have to leave soon?”
Sinbad looked upstairs. “I guess. Your parents only paid for a few days in this place. So…When they getting back?”
“Soon, I hope.” Shark relaxed a little more, which led Sagebear to jump up onto his chest and lay down on him.
Horse-Face solemnly trudged back to the portal after fetching the other three assistants.
“I still don’t understand why you had to shove Ox-Head into a carrier,” He told Moony as he looked over to the dog carrier Sunny was holding.
Moony just let out a sound of exasperation. “We tried getting him to come quietly, but no. He said he didn’t want to leave ‘Andromeda’ the way she was.”
It had taken a frying pan to the head to get him to comply, according to Moony. Now Ox-Head whimpered in the carrier, trying to claw out.
Sunny just tapped the top part of the carrier to get him to quiet down. Then he reached behind his back to make sure The Builder’s grenade launcher was safely affixed there.
When all four stepped into the other world, the portal closed. Sighing at the dirty job they were going to have to perform, Horse-Face and the other assistants waited for The Builder to get back.
“So we got all we needed packed up, right?” Blaise asked Dennis on the way out.
“We certainly do,” Dennis told her as he nodded. “It’s going to be interesting to bring Mister Rotter and his family home after over a year.”
A little while after that, husband and wife didn’t say anything. They just checked their purchases to make sure everyone was going to get what they’d wanted.
When they reached the house, the door flew opened to reveal Sagebear blasting out to greet them. Both of them chuckled at her having apparently smelled the food.
“Aw, don’t worry, little girl,” Blaise said to Sagebear as she snuffled their feet. “Grandma and Grandpa got ya something, too.”
