It was early morning and the start of a hard-working day at Honeydew Inc. For once, Simon (Honeydew) the dwarf was up bright and early and yelling at everyone shouting:
"Where is my jaffa? Why are there no jaffas yet? Come on Duncan, you're the scientist, tell me how long it's gonna take!"
Duncan (LividCoffee) the scientist of the group stopped writing in his notepad and looked up.
"It depends how well Lewis, Sips_ and Sjin are doing. Once they have finished doing whatever, then we can make some. You told us not to condense them, so it will take a lot longer than I previously thought." Duncan replied.
Simon's heart sunk. "Our aim was to make a Jaffa factory... But all the progress we have made is the actual building, Clucky's giant egg and the wheat farm!"
"If you are that impatient, Simon, then I suggest you go and see what Lewis, Sjin and Sips_ are up to." Duncan took off his goggles and started to clean them.
Simon raised his head to make himself look a bit taller and stomped out of the penthouse level. He was very impatient, and considering that nearly 70 episodes of them messing about had come round, he had longed for that familiar taste of 'Honeydew's Jaffas'. Now that Sips_ and Sjin had joined them, he thought that this would be a lot quicker. Obviously not. Simon opened the door to the jaffa factory and walked out, making sure that he closed the door behind him. In the distance, he saw three familiar spacemen flying about. Simon jumped twice. He couldn't fly. He checked his inventory. No flying ring. Where the hell was it? He ran over and stood below the three, shouting:
"Hey, you lot! Come down here!"
The spaceman trio stopped chattering and flew down to ground level, unlike Sjin, who just fell face first. Sips laughed whereas Lewis (Xephos) just tutted and then turned to Simon.
"Morning, friend! What's the matter?"
"Hello, Lewis! I just came over to see how far you were doing with whatever you are doing."
Lewis scratched his head and turned to Sips.
"We've just finished the giant egg, Simon. So we are all set for orders!" Sips replied, and then dropped his voice to a whisper:
"Now, about my payment..."
"Oi! You said that you didn't want any money! The giant head-" Simon looked over at Sjin. "-Made sure of that!"
"Why are you looking at Sjin? He's just the poolboy, right, Sjin?" Sips raised his eyebrow and smirked.
"O-Oh! But we agreed that we were 50-50 on this, Sips! Sijips Co., right?" Sjin asked.
"Big money, big women, big payment. Now where's my money, pig man?" Sips held out his hand in front of Simon for money.
"Wait a sec! I'm the best worker here! I don't complain, and no-one gives me any money..." Sjin protested.
The dwarf and the two spacemen continued to argue over the money as Lewis sighed. Wasn't anyone normal like him except Duncan? Lewis walked over to the factory to see if the scientist wanted a hand whilst the three continued to argue.
"Look, I want money."
"Well, we could pay you in Jaffas?"
"I like the sound of that! What about you, Sips?"
"Fine, but how long is this Jaffa production thingy going to take?"
"I don't know. Go ask Duncan."
"I can't be bothered. My legs hurt."
"How could they hurt? You've been flying! I've lost my damn flying ring!"
"Well, actually Simon, I saw a flying ring in the Misc. chest on the storage level..."
Simon ran inside the factory to search for his ring.
"I'm getting tired of this, Sjin. Why do I have to work for them? I mean, working with Lewis and Duncan is fine, but, Simon? I'm not so sure..." Sips looked at his feet. They suddenly seemed more interesting than ever.
Sjin put a hand on his boss' shoulder. "Lets just wait until they pay us. Then we can leave."
Sips nodded as they went inside to check on Clucky.
Meanwhile, inside Honeydew Inc....
Simon was rummaging through the chests.
"Come on! Where are you? I need you to check on Pig Island!"
Suddenly, the lights went out.
"Power's out! Wait a sec, Duncan's gone to fix it!" Lewis shouted from a higher level.
"Bloody brilliant." Simon just stood there until the power came back on. There was a shuffling of feet next to him.
"Who the bloody hell are you?!"
Purple enderman eyes shone through the darkness and the power switched on, revealing...
"Rythian and Zoey! What are you doing here?!"
"We are here to take revenge on the infamous Sips Co. You wouldn't happen to know where Sjin is, would you?" Rythian took out his Red Matter sword, shining menacingly in the light. Rythian was kitted out in full red armor, and Zoey was in black. Simon just stood there, wide-eyed.
"Lets go, Zoey!" Rythian shouted as he ran downstairs, whereas Zoey shouted a "Hello, Simon!" as she followed him down. Simon wasted no time as he climbed up the ladder, ran towards Lewis and Duncan and said:
"Crap! Lewis! Duncan! They're here! Rythian and Zoey! They asked where Sjin was as now they have gone outside to take revenge on him!"
Lewis wasted no time, his brave instincts taking over as he smashed a hole in the factory wall and flew down, Sapphire Sword at the ready. Duncan was more sensible and flew down the floors and out the front door, Simon following him. Rythian was about to engage battle with Sjin, standing in a battle ready stance whilst Zoey had trapped Sips in an iron bar cage. Lewis was standing protectively in front of Sjin, sword out and black armor on.
"It is inevitable, Lewis. This is Red Matter armor, the most expensive and impenetrable armor in the whole of Minecraftia. Stand aside, or you will go down, too!"
Lewis didn't move. Simon's eyes widened and his heart rate shot up as he realized what Lewis was about to say.
Rythian charged towards Sjin, hoping to surprise attack, his sword out front. Lewis reacted quicky as he pushed Sjin out of the way, taking the hit for him. An unbearable surge of pain shot through Lewis as he fell to the floor with a crack. There was a gaping cut across his forehead and it was bleeding badly, but Lewis staggered up, put two hands on his Sapphire sword and ran towards Rythian at the speed of sound. Rythian was being attacked from multiple sides at the speed Lewis was going, throwing him up in the air and back down to the floor, but no damage was being taken. Eventually Lewis stopped to admire his handiwork, but no damage was taken. Rythian smirked darkly.
"Like I said, Lewis, there is no stopping me-" Rythian paused as he looked down. A sapphire sword as sticking out of his chest, through his armor. Rythian pulled it out, blood trickling down.
"H-How did you...?"
Now it was Lewis' turn to smirk darkly.
"Never; I repeat, never; anger a spaceman."
Rythian dropped to the ground as Duncan and Simon picked him up and rushed him to get medical attention, whereas Lewis dropped to his knees and looked over at Sjin.
"You okay, pal?" He asked. Sjin nodded.
"T-Thank you so much..."
Zoey was struggling with Sips, as she had carelessly left her sword back at the castle and they were now engaged in a fist-fight, but now Zoey had rushed inside to follow Rythian. Sjin helped Lewis back into the factory and Sips followed them.
"What a morning..." Sjin said quietly as he helped Lewis up to Duncan's lab...
