Venomous stopped writing and squeezed the pen making ink fall into his palm. “Ew..” He wiped it on his sweater then tossed it aside grabbing another.

Fink watched the crushed pen be added to the pile, “Hey that’s a new record you actually wrote before tossing out a pen!” She smiled, attempting to cheer him up but his attention was back to the paper. She huffed and looked out the space shuttle’s window, wasn’t long till they reached Earth. What would happen once they got her is what concerned her.

 

Dear Lord Boxman,

I hope these letters reach you somehow, when I’m better, when I am ready to see you again. Let me begin my saying I’m sorry for letting you down, for taking you for granted, for being selfish.

Once I return to Earth I will work on making it up to you. If you allow me to do so.

Venomous gulped, how was he supposed to end this? He can’t say love, would friend work?

 

Dear Lord Boxman,

I hope these letters reach you somehow, when I’m better, when I am ready to see you again. Let me begin my saying I’m sorry for letting you down, for taking you for granted, for being selfish.

Once I return to Earth I will work on making it up to you. If you allow me to do so.

Y̶o̶u̶r̶ ̶F̶r̶i̶

 

Venomous groaned, no that won’t work either they aren’t friends! He hit his head in frustration and reread the letter, this is stupid he can’t get better. He sniffled as he started to cry letting tears fall on the page.

Fink heard Venomous and wiped his tears and took the letter so it didn’t get more smudged. “I-It’ll be okay boss everything will work out!” She quickly looked down at the letter to see the last bit was a huge smudge from the tears. “Even if box-brain doesn’t take you back who needs him anyway! you are way better than him!”

Venomous looked up at Fink with stained cheeks of tears and runny eyeliner. “Fink..do you really believe that?” Fink looked away and sat down next to Venomous and patted his leg as she went quiet.

The silence broke when the shuttle landed with a sound boom. The two pulled on the latch and crawled out from the top. “The plaza?” Venomous said aloud looking around, not much had changed other than it returning to its fresh state than when he tried to take over with TKO.

He turned to see Boxmore, it was back to Boxmore and seemed to be back to its former glory. Fink noticed Venomous staring at Boxmore and groaned. “Crud…” Suddenly Venomous grabbed her shoulder and began putting on his battle armor they got from space.

“C’mon! while we are already here..let's attack the plaza!” Venomous suggested as he snapped the arm cannon on. Fink snickered as she slipped on hers as well.

The attack began smoothly, until when he flew up in the air he looked over at Boxmore. For a moment he saw Boxman, he was in his office and he turned to Venomous. Their eyes met for a moment both appeared in awe until in an instant Boxman looked away and put blinds over the window. “Wait NO!” Venomous weakly called out until he was kicked in the jaw and shot back.

Endi’s fiery kick left a mark on him and he watched Fink be blown back as well, luckily he caught her before she landed face first in the shuttle. The two quickly returned to the shuttle and took off.

“That was fun wasn’t it?” Venomous began while Fink took off her visor that was cracked.

“Would've been if-...yeah I guess..boss i’m hungry.” Fink pouted as she laid back,

Venomous grinned, “not to worry Fink I collected a lot of technos rom that planet before leaving..well their version of it..” He stopped at a hotel and Fink raised an eyebrow. “I-It’s temporary Fink until I can get a new lair built.”

The two went inside the nice hotel that had waterfalls greeted at the beginning and full of dinner halls. “See? not so bad!” Venomous approach the front desk and handed them a handful of other worldly technos.

The receptionist rung them up then hummed, “Yeah this isn’t enough..”

Venomous choked, “NOT ENOUGH?!”

The receptionist sighed and laughed a bit at his reaction. “I don’t know if you heard but this currency is from another planet and it got invaded a bit ago so value of it plumpted, basically inflation.”

Venomous and Fink stared at each other nervously for a moment before Venomous took the technos back. “O-Oh well thanks!” him and Fink left and Venomous parked at a motel next.

Fink huffed at the awful exterior, Venomous nervously chuckled. “I know its a bit...dirty but its all I can afford for now.” Fink huffed and got out of the shuttle, Venomous as well and thankfully the amount was accepted and the two made it to their room.

Venomous plopped down on the bed while he watched Fink inspect the room. “Um boss? your bed..”

Venomous got up and stared at the bed then saw bugs crawling from underneath the sheets. “Seriously?” He got up and a second later it was ashes as Fink shot it with her cannon.

“There!” Fink then checked her own bed and smiled, “no bugs here!” Venomous was relieved at least Fink wouldnt have that problem. He then laid on the floor until he noticed Fink standing on top of him. “You can..sleep with me boss..” She asked shyly as she looked away from Venomous.

He stood up and hugged Fink, “That sounds nice Fink..” The two laid in the remaining bed and Fink curled up next to Venomous’s side as he kept an arm around her. “Thanks Fink..”

Fink laughed, “I wasn’t gonna let you sleep on the floor boss-“

“No I mean sure but I mean for staying around..” Venomous rubbed Fink’s hair as he spoke, “Even after everything, after lying, after being a bad boss..I don’t deserve a minion like you..” Venomous pulled Fink into a tight hug.

“But here we are..” Fink turned around and put her paws on his cheeks. “You’re stuck with me forever! The best minion ever!”

“I can live with that..” Venomous snickered “Especially with a minion this adorable!” he began to coo then put his lips on Fink’s cheek then blew making noises.

Fink laughed and struggled in his hold, “Nooooo I am not a baby boss!!!” She laughed harder, “It tickles!!!”

Venomous laughed and stopped then laid her back down in bed and sighs, he looks down at Fink who is giving him a smile. He smiles back and Fink finally turns away to sleep. Venomous stared at the air conditioner then at the poorly cleaned curtains that barely covered the large window.

Zoned out, the noises of the loud air conditioner, the roaring vehicles, the show on the television all blending together as Venomous began to lose his touch on reality.

He felt like he was floating as he ventured in his mind, memories flashed before him. Venomous watched himself as laserblast and holding Carol tightly. Watched the two talk and laugh, cry and sleep.

Particularly when he saw Carol and KO when he told them the truth, the pain on her face. The sense of betrayal, KO’s horror to see who his father is. While he is back on earth he should make things right.

 

“I gotta go see Sparks.”
