The SuperBeast Chronicles 31
Mike takes a deep breath, and walks over, trying not to bump into any workers. He goes looking for Dan, but is nowhere to be found. The construction workers work around Mike, and they drill and hammer and hang up pictures of Dan in his trademark poses and price listings. Mike walks out and sees Dan walking in. Dan sees him and runs up to him like a crazed schoolgirl. He hugs him tightly, much to Mike's chagrin.
Dan: Mike! Mike-Mike-Mike-Mike-Mike! So good to see you...neighbor!
Mike: (inner monologue) AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! (Out loud) Great to see you, Dan.
Dan: Have you come to endorse my new school!?
Mike: No, Dan. I woke up to the construction. Just please, no funny business. Just run a legit business, please? I just got done being sick, saving the world from some half naked dude in a skull mask. Just please, do the right thing.
Dan: Don't worry! Lessons for you will be on the house! You could learn a thing or two!
Mike: I'm sure I could.
Mike walks away and back in. The rest of the day went without incident. Until that night. Cammy is in deep sleep, snoring lightly. Mike is stiff as a board, his eyes wide and bloodshot.
Radio outside: HEY! HEY! HEY HEY HEY! MACHO MACHO MAN! I GOT TO BE A MACHO MAN!
Mike puts his pillow over his own face and screams. He gets up and puts pants on.
Mike: This shit has got to stop...
Mike goes out the front door. As he leaves, Cammy looks over and tugs on her ear plugs.
Cammy: Earplugs honey...earplugs...zzzzz....
