Second chapter, I haven't finished it but I'll put this up whilst I go eat noodles
“Hey, I’m Party Poison”
“Howdy, I’m Sonic detonator, this is Static Sunshine, Cellophane Baby and Jukebox Domain”, I replied pointing around the table introducing ourselves.
“Y’know where the cashier is?”, he asked as sandy walked out of the restroom and behind the checkout.
“Oh never mind, nice to meet you all”, he said as he walked over to pay for the gas. A familiar figure appeared out of the back of their car.
“SHOW PONY” Cellophane Baby screeched as he skated over with his spotty leggings and crop top with ‘noise’ written across it, he lifted the visor on his helmet and grinned at us all.
“Hey guys, long time no see” He said as he hugged us all in turn.
“How’ve you been?”, Cellophane Baby asked, “You found Sunshine pony yet?”, Show Pony looked upset for a second but tried to hide it, we all noticed but didn’t mention it.
“Nah, been looking for so long now, I know she’s out there somewhere. But who better to help me look than the fabulous killjoys”, he stated as he pointed at the old car now with the driver back in his seat.
“Hey guys why don’t you come over and meet them”, he exclaimed, not really asking, he gestured the gang to get out the car. They stepped out reluctantly and headed over in our direction. I saw Static whispering to JD “Oh my goodness it’s actually the fabulous killjoys, I can‘t believe it!”, they grinned at each other and glanced back at the gang who’ve reached our group now.
“Guys this is my old gang, Sonic Detonator, Static Sunshine, Cellophane Baby and Jukebox Domain. And gang, these are the fabulous killjoys, Party Poison, Jet Star, Fun Ghoul and Kobra Kid” Show Pony beemed at us all. The fabulous killjoys smiled at us and nodded, we did the same,
“Hey you guys want anything to eat?”, Cellophane Baby asked politely,
“Sure”, they all said at the same time, we giggled.
I lead them all inside and got four tins of food, opened them and gave them all spoons.
They ate every last bit of the food, they must’ve been hungry. I cleared up there rubbish and fun ghoul(I think) came to help me, he grabbed some rubbish and followed me,
“Hey, Fun Ghoul”, he said with a grin and stuck his hand out, I shook it and replied
“So where’re you guys headed?”
“I’m not sure, just driving around killing as many Dracs as possible”
“Ah we’re doing the same whilst trying to find Sunshine Pony, poor kid, I hate to say it but I’m not sure if there’s much hope left”, he sighed.
“She’ll be out there, she’s a fighter, she’ll never give up, she’ll never get ghosted”, I replied with certainty.
“Well that’s good to hear”, and with that we wandered back to the rest of the crowd.
Everyone was rushing outside. Show Pony was yelling and shooting at a van, it was white with the black BL/I logo on it. Shit.
"What's happening?", Fun Ghoul asked looking confused.
"Static Sunshine ran out first, to shoot some Dracs that were walking past the diner, a gang of them came around the corner and shoved him into that van", Cellophane Baby answered with a worried glance along the road.
“Well don’t just stand here then, we gotta fight”, Party Poison exclaimed whilst running to their car. The fabulous killjoys and Show Pony all jumped into their car. Fun Ghoul winked at me as they sped down the dusty road after that van. Jukebox Domain’d pulled our car around from the back of the diner, it was an old Land Rover Defender with giant wheels and a front winch, it was once bright green, bit it’d been covered in graffiti over the years, I always thought it looked good lie that though. We all hopped in and raced after the old Dodge Charger.
