Bic Biro in … ROLLERBALL (Part 8)
Last time we saw our hero free himself from BIG KNIB’s clutches and dash across the control room where he saw a very tempting looking button …
Alphonso Ferraro looked on horrified as Bic’s finger moved closer and closer to the button.
NO. DO NOT PRESS THAT BUTTON!!!
Oops. Sorry. Too late.
The loudspeaker clicked on and a pleasant female voice began to speak.
AUTO DESTRUCT SEQUENCE INITIATED. TOTAL SYSTEMS OVERRIDE. YOU ARE ALL GOING TO DIE IN … 15 MINUTES. HAVE A NICE DAY.
Ferraro was quite beside himself with rage and fury.
Curse and damn you Bic Biro. You have yet again thwarted BLOT’s plans for world domination. You also wasted a perfectly good cup of coffee and for that, you must pay. I am going to put an end to your meddlesome interference once and for all. Kill him BIG KNIB. Rip him apart limb from limb. Tear his heart and liver out through his nose and force him to eat them. Call him nasty names and then bring me his head on a plate with a side order of strawberries and a glass of champagne. Oh … and ready my personal helicopter.
AUTO DESTRUCT IN … 10 MINUTES.
While Ferraro was busy giving his big speech Bic raced out of the control room and ran back up through the tunnels towards the surface. When Bic emerged he found Penny Lush exactly where he’d left her sipping another cocktail.
Hi handsome, how’s tricks ?
The whole island is about to blow. We’ve got to escape.
There’s a speedboat just over there on the beach.
Hurry Penny. We have no time to lose!
Meanwhile … back in the control room.
Do you know something BIG KNIB. I’ve never really cared for all this mayhem and destruction. My masters at BLOT will be very displeased with me indeed when they find out. Failure means death. I’m just going to stay here and see things out to the end. You take the helicopter. Save youself BIG KNIB. I’ll be OK. Off you go. There’s a good chap.
Actually, I’m not a chap. I’m a girl. And … I LOVE YOU!
Well well well. How nice. Have a glass of champagne my dear and tell me all about yourself.
AUTO DESTRUCT IN … ONE MINUTE.
