This was the winning entry for Brian S Creek’s Chris and Mike contest. Chris and Mike are two brilliant characters and I’m looking forward to reading more of their adventures!
The Adventures of Chris and Mike belongs to Brian S Creek; check out his blog for more info. This Chris and Mike adventure was inspired by real life events that occurred with my own Chris and Mike. I’ll let you decide which is real and which is fiction…
CHRIS AND MIKE VS THE ROBOTIC WAITER
“I forgot my wallet,” Mike said.
“How convenient,” Chris said.
“Wait, did you hear that?”
The team knew a scream when they heard one. The other patrons took no notice.
“Pretend to be drunk.”
Mike staggered over to their waiter.
“I love you, bro,” he said. He squeezed the waiter in a hug.
Chris snuck into the kitchen. Two robots were lowering a gagged man into boiling water.
“Stop ruining my favourite diner!”
One robot turned and blasted Chris through the wall. He landed, stunned, at the waiter’s feet.
The waiter was now (unsurprisingly) a robot – and so were the other patrons. Mike was in their clutches, being tickled relentlessly.
“We are the Torture Bots. You will be broken,” the waiter said.
One of the other robots shed its exterior and revealed…a grizzly bear.
“I was hoping for a human,” Chris groaned.
The grizzly grabbed the heroes and hauled them out the door.
“Duck!” she yelled.
The diner exploded behind them.
“Where will we eat now?” Mike demanded.
“Did anyone save the guy in the kitchen?” Chris asked.
“Never mind that,” the grizzly said. “I’ve been looking everywhere for you. The world is in great danger. I need your help!”
