|Ace preened a little
in front of Hannah. “You already have, my dear. I'm sorry, this little
scene is quite touching, but you just don't cut it as an actress, does
growled as she tried unwedging herself from between the two hapless friends,
but was only able to move inches before giving up.
Sci-Fye! She cannot budge at all. Too bad this device only works in small
enclosed spaces, or we would have other uses for it.” Ace Britely grinned
“Well, we're almost
there.” Ace pushed the gas pedal to the floor aiming right for a large
“Hey!” Shouted Hannah,
who was no longer laughing at anything as the wall raced up towards them.
“What's the matter?”

He poked at his glasses until they settled once more on his nose.
“I don't think you've got the nerve!” poked Doc, eyeing Sci-Fye fiercely
while digging at his collar.
It didn't take much to set the mad scientist off. “Take that! you nerveless

Doc tyger's chest and pressed the trigger.
Doc blinked and asked politely “Take what? I don't feel a thing.”
