Five minutes until total destruction

I glanced at the countdown timer implanted on the bomb and winced, only five minutes, we only had five minutes to save the world, me and Barry.Five minutes!!! I couldn't even tie my shoes in five minutes let alone save the world.

"We have to switch this thing off!" I yelled at Barry, even though he was standing right next to me.

"Yeh, well I have nothing."

"Nothing?"

"Yep, zilch, nada, nothing."

4 minutes and 30 seconds until total destruction.

"Nothing!! All that training with the SAS and you have nothing?" I screamed in his ear, I was boarding on hysterical.

"Yes I have nothing, how about you, do you have something, why are you asking me?"

4minutes and 10 seconds until total destruction.

"Because I have nothing!!"

"So I see we're on the same level of understanding."

"ERRRRRRRRRR!!" I wanted to strangle Barry right then and there, but what use would it be? Even if he was a complete idiot, I still needed him to help me get out of here.

3 minutes and 50 seconds until total destruction

"Hey abby, how about this pause button." I looked at Barry with new found amazement,could he be any more stupid,a pause button on a bomb? ON A BOMB!

"Barry---" But he'd already clicked the button with his stubby little finger, and to my astonishment, the timer on the bomb froze, but at the same time a siren wailed throughout the whole factory, making my whole world blink sudden flashes of red.

I turned my attention back to the timer.

2 minutes until total destruction

I felt like crying, the pause button was a trick!! When Barry clicked it, he sped up the timer, so now we only had two minutes to save the world. LORD TAKE ME NOW!!

"Great job Barry, what would I do without you!!!!"

Barry gave me an extremly filthy look.

"Well missy, no need for the sarcasm, at least I did something, I mean look at you, your not even my wife and your always nagging me."

1minute and 30 seconds until total destruction.

"You two will never find the key that turns this bomb off. I hid it in a place that you would never look! NEVER!! MWA HA HA HA HA HA uuuhaaar *splutter* *cough*"

The voice came from speakers above our heads, it had to be MagGath, the villan that had put us into this sticky situation.

1 minute until total destruction.

"Hey abby,the best year-round temperature is a warm heart and a cool head, you really should try that, you have more of a hot head and a cold heart." remarked Barry

40 seconds until total destruction

"SHUT IT OK!! SHUT IT!!" I cried, my fingers were itching with the surge to slap Barry right across his skinny little face.

I scanned the metal bomb for anything that might give away the hide out of the key.

30 sec---

The bomb had stopped, it had stopped!!! But how?

"Well abby, looks like I am more than your average idiot hugh? What would you do without me?"

I turned to face Barry, who was holding a white card in between his grimy fingers, I felt sick. I owed my life to Barry!! Barry the fool!! The nimcompoop!!!

"What, how, how, What? How!" I whispered, we had to be careful now, MagGath's men could be coming any second now that the bomb was off.

"It was easy, I don't know how you of all people missed it, but I found the key sticking out the side of the machine, it was supposed to look like it was part of the white painted part of the bomb, but it stuck out like a sore thumb."

"Well then Barry, looks like you did save the day after all." I muttered through gritted teeth.

"HANDS UP!!Both ofYOU!!" We both swivelled ourselves round to find armed men crowding aroundus from left to right.

"You take the left, I'll take the right. how does that sound?"

Barry nodded, and with out any hesitation, ran in the exact opposite direction, crashing throughthe window behind us, leaving me with the rest of the men, and a shattered floor of glass.

"Barry you----"

A gunshot sizzled past my head, scorching the ends of my hair. i heard a shout from outside the cracked window.

"Jump!! Its not that far down." Barry's voice traveled to my ear, I decided to take his word and jumped out of the same window.

It was like pratically taking a step.What was this?

"Now what?" I asked, my eyes were still glaring at Barry full of hatred.

"Now we run."
