Chapter 18-Duel in the Skies

 

Ray put on his glove and did the blending in. He swooped around the outside of the building and entered through a veranda on the other side.

Crouching, he looked through a window to get some idea of what the hell he was dealing with.

First he saw the eight foot robot, with it's head going back and forth, surveying the ballroom. Then he saw somebody dressed like a cowboy confronting Eric and Rita.

He eyed the robot, thinking to himself "Jesus Horation Chirst! Have I got to go up against that gargantuan monstrocity?!"

Looking around  more, he saw there were plenty of bodies lying here and there ,and noticed some people behind tipped over tables who were still conscious. Scared to death of course, but still conscious.

As Ray heard sirens in the distance, he started looking for Mike. Then he heard shouts and people coming. "Security." he thought.

He rose and flew towards the source of all the noise. Over a dozen hotel security guards had made it to the foyer outside the ballroom. People were running down the stairway

Ray stopped and floated in the air where everyone could see him. "EVERYBODY GET THE HELL OUTTA HERE! I MEAN EVERYBODY! THERE'S I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL IN THERE, BUT NOBODY HERE BUT ME IS GONNA BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH IT! NOW GET OUTTA HERE!" he shouted.

"He's right!" said a man who was heading towards the stairway with his wife, "there's some kind of enormous monster or robot or something in there!" directing his words to the guards.

Ray floated over to who appeared to be in charge. "Shut off the stairways leading up here and the elevators too !" he said, "I'm going back in there!"

"You're one of those superhero guys, aren't you?" the man asked

"Yeah, I guess so," Ray answered, turning and heading back towards the ballroom.

"What about the police?!" the man yelled.

"Just tell them unless they are equipped to deal with a mechanical King Kong, they better stay the hell out!" Ray answered, "and tell them to get this damn building evacuated!"

 

The Rustler just stood there looking at Eric and Rita, who couldn't believe their eyes

"You're insane!" Eric said, "and you're going to go to prison to be somebody's bitch for a long time!"

"Well that'll be the day, pilgrim!" The Rustler replied in his best John Wayne imitation, "now put up your dukes and we'll have us a brawl!"

The Rustler put up his fists as Eric came at him. After a lightening fast series of punches, Eric's body slumped to the floor, his face squashed in like a rotted pumpkin.

Rita screamed. Then she looked up at Eric's killer

"I know martial arts!!" she yelled " and I'm going to kill you!!"  She then kicked off her shoes. 

 All she did was demonstrate how much she didn't know.  Her clumsy kicks had about as much affect as a marshmallow being thrown against a thousand pound rhinocerous.

Heinrich grabbed her throat and raised her off the ground above his head, her feet dangling. The he brought her eyes very close to his.

"Do us all a favor, will you?" he asked, "go buy some Odor Eaters. You can stop at Wallgreen's on the way home."

Then he grabbed her by the hand, sat down on his saddle, and turned her over his knee. He lifted up her evening gown and started spanking her. She wore no underwear and her butt was beet red in just a few of seconds.  Right after that he grabbed her by the ankle and held her upside down as he flew back into the night.

She screamed and screamed as he dangled her over a thousand feet above the ground. "Bye bye, bitch!" he said as he let her go, watching her plummet.

Suddenly, he saw a dark figure appear out of nowhere, swooping down and grabbing her. The figure took her down and gently set her on the street.

Heinrich was furious. This guy, whoever he was, was going to pay!

Ray flew back up and hovered anout thrity feet from The Rustler. They quitely faced each other for a few seconds.

"I don't know exactly who the hell you are or what your game is, partner, but this shit ends right now!" Ray shouted

With that The Rustler whipped out his six gun abd started blasting Ray. The multiple explosions knocked him out of the sky causing him to fall through a skylight in an abandoned building.

Heinrich zoomed down into the place where Ray had fallen. It was very dark and quiet.

Suddenly The Rustller was blasted from the side by an energy beam, knocking him off Thunder. He slowly stood up just to receive a hard punch in the jaw, causing him to crash through a wall.

Ray floated over and hovered above him

"I have no problem playing rough if that's what you want to do, Duke," he said

 

Mike regained consciousness and sat up. The mechanical monster was still there, surveying the room.

Staying behind the table, Mike put on his glove. A second later he rocketed around the table, both fists in front, and rammed Clint who went flying back through a wall.

The robot rose and blasted his beam at Mike, who ducked just in time.

Mike heard the sound of police helicopters outside. He wondered where the hell Ray was.

He flew forward and grabbed Clint by it's ankles.

"I think I need to take you for a swim," Mike said.

He rocketed out and dropped Clint into the harbor, not too far from the Statue of Liberty. Mike knew electrical things did not like water.

He hovered for a few seocnds, looking down at the deep waters, making sure his job was finished

 

A few seconds later, like a juggernaut from hell, Clint came soaring up from the depths, right towards Mike.
