Men in Pastel Eggshell

by Bahlahkay | Score: 5550

The heat poured heavy in the desert of Nevada, the man in black revved up behind the building with the codes he had access from a secret lab.

He assumed he could outsmart his way into the base such as Beethoven could design a work of art however, he soon found this would be no easy task.

A woman with a bright red bandana stood behind the gate with a shotgun. When she saw the man in black she queried "aren't you afraid?"

"No." He calmly replied. "I have made many babies cry and grown men weep on my path here."

She exhaled at his strange statement and went to examine his motorcycle. 

"what kind of exhaust do you have here?" She asked. "This shit's something a resigned musician would ride." 

"Maybe so." He exclaimed, "But I bet you didn't expect this..."

He proceeded to pull out a large pickaxe from a secret compartment in the bike.

"shut up." She yelled. And opened fire upon him. He swifty hopped on his bike to avoid the great storm of bullets.

Severel of her shots missed as he swiftly manuvered from her aim. He moved to jump the fence to invade the base but a mysterious pawnbroker nearby threw a coookie tin in his direction.
