Chapter Eighty-Seven: Chuckles and Giggles vs the Presidents Entrusted National Intelligence Service

“Belle, you're
driving like a maniac, calm down!” Charlie tried to stop Belle from
getting the both of them killed on the Warry-Go Highway.
“I have to get back!
What if they do something to my Dad?!” Belle cried.
Peter put his phone
down. “Bloody hell. I have to go into the office, Scavie wants a
file sent that can't wait until tomorrow.”
Everyone one of the Noble Knights of the Last Order cried.
“Guys…I don't need
a guard. I've been fine up until now, and I will continue to be
fine.” Peter picked up his car keys. “Someone's used these to
open something.” He wiped something off the key that looked
suspiciously off.
“Pete, you STOLE
GOVERNMENT PROPERTY, furthermore that property WAS A TOP SECRET
WEAPON.” Sunny cried. “They're going to be after you!”
“If anything, it's
Lara who's in danger, you should be protecting her!” Peter shot
back. “She's the government employee!”
“Look, here's how
it's gonna happen.” Daniel held up his hands for calm. “I'm going
with Peter. If all of us go, it's too conspicuous. Sunny, you,
Petunia and TJ are staying here with Lara. The twins are gonna go
“Only two of us on
patrol?” Sammy asked.
“I reckon it will be
the last calm patrol before the fallout begins.” Peter told them.
“Demon is going to be furious at the Masters clan, plus at the
Haunted Maze Troupe for causing trouble while the Presidents
Entrusted National Intelligence Service was here. The Mobsters are
gonna be frothing at the bit to cause trouble again. Once Chuckles
and Giggles get back, it's gonna be on for young and old.”
“Oath.” Sammy
looked at Tammy, who nodded at him. Both of them headed to the tip to
suit up and ship out.
“Don't you think I
should come with you to protect Peter? Three of us here is a bit
overkill.” TJ pointed out to Daniel.
“We'll be fine, we're
just going to get a file.” Peter stood at the front door. “Can we
go now?”
Daniel and TJ shared a
worried look.
terror as Belle took the exit towards the Wastelands where
Pleasantville sat.
“No time! We're still
half an hour away!” Belle said, pedal to the metal as she swerved
past a family in a station wagon.
“I can't believe I
agreed to this.” Peter grumbled as Thomas drove him and Sir
Lionheart to the Council Building.
“Well, you didn't
want a full security detail, so we brought the Improbability Clause
with us instead.” Sir Lionheart told him.
“Swell.” Peter
“Cheer up Petey.
This'll be quick, there'll be no need for the Clause.” Thomas
They pulled into the
carpark and headed into the building.
“See? Simple.”
Thomas said as Peter went through the filing cabinet to get the file
he needed to send.
“I know that, and you
know that, but the Knights seem to think otherwise.” Peter walked
to his desk to get an envelope out. “Security let us in no problem,
it's quiet and no one is getting on my nerves.”
That's when watched his
best friends face fall.
“Sir Lionheart?”
Peter called out. Silence. “LIONHEART?” He tried again. “Darn
it Tom, you told me no Clause!”
“We have to go and
find him, he could be in – LOOK OUT!” Thomas cried as Richard
Dickson threw the Hedgehogs Quill Dagger at Peter from the shadows!
“Don't worry about
the Knight, Testy and Ball took care of him quite quickly.” Dickson
smirked as the knife landed in the wall next to Peters head.
“Maybe I SHOULD have
had a full security detail.” Peter gulped.
The door to the office
opened, and Testy and Ball walked through. Ball had Sir Lionheart
over his shoulder.
“Perfect, we'll
unmask him when we get back to base and get all the details we need
from him.” Dickson said before aiming the Speedy Two at Peter.
“Once we know who Chuckles and Giggles are, we can sort things out
in Pleasantville.”
“You faked being bad
with those weapons to get us to lower our guard. You're more
competent than we thought.” Thomas growled.
“A simple ruse, but
so very, very effective.” Dickson smirked. “Now Mr. Masters, to
deal with you.”
“PETE NO!” Thomas
rushed to defend his best friend. Dickson fired, narrowly missing
both men with the first bullet.
“You make this too
easy.” Dickson fired again.
If Giggles hadn't
jumped through the window at that moment, knocking over Dickson, the
bullet would have struck Peter Masters down where he stood.
Instead, it hit Thomas
Begly close to his throat.
“TOMMY!” Peter
cried, rushing to his best friend side.
“Gentlemen, deal.”
Dickson got ready to finish the job while Testy and Ball took care of
“Not so fast!”
Dickson was sent flying
by a punch from Chuckles, which cut open Dicksons face with an Arm
“Darn it, there's
three of them, and according to Daryl, two of them have in-built
Carbon Power!” Giggles groaned.
“Well, you have
in-built immunity!” Chuckles shoved her towards Testy and Ball,
while he went after Dickson. Dickson growled and pulled with his
hand. The Hedgehogs Quill, which was attached to a thin string, came
back to him and he used to to block another offensive. Unfortunately
for him, Chuckles was relentless, leaving him unable to reload the
Speedy Two.
Sure enough, when Ball
threw his Amethyst Blast at Giggles, she was able to dissipate it
easily. With the Lucky Seven Gun, she was able to keep the pair away
from the battling Dickson and Chuckles.
“Fall back!”
Dickson regrouped with Testy and Ball, who were happy to get away
from Giggles and her guns.
“Get out of
Pleasantville and don't you EVER come back!” Giggles warned.
Dickson glared at her
for what seemed like a long time. Finally, he turned around and
walked out of the room.
“You're gonna just
walk off?!” Testy asked incredulously.
“Fall back.”
Dickson growled.
The two men followed
him out of the room, and out of Pleasantville. Both of them shot
parting filthy looks at Chuckles and Giggles, who weren't
particularly bothered.
Chuckles ran to his
“Dad?!” He looked
at his fathers lifeless body.
stop the blood…he…was…my…best…friend…” Peter could
barely speak.
Chuckles understood.
He'd been here before.
He covered his face as
Giggles came over and took his arm. She looked at him quizzically.
“Are you…laughing?”
She said quietly to him.
Suddenly Thomas lurched
forward with a roar, scaring Peter and Giggles.
I did say it was CLOSE
to the throat. Probably more near the shoulder. Peter refused to talk
to him for three weeks.
