    No!

    The hit went right home, and the Scarab felt its body began to wane; its power ebb away from it.

    No! It was...It was going offine...! No! Initiating self-destruct sequence!

    The Scarab shot out at its foe, and grasped on tightly, all four appendages wrapped around the bigger robot for life--and for death.

    It was time to finish this.

    (Self-Destruct!: Two die will be rolled. They cannot be avoided. The first is for the Scarab and the second is for Jo!)

    The earth shuddered and trembled beneath their feet with the explosion, knocking them both off their feet. A large crater filled the arena, smoke billowing forth like a black cloud.

    And from the ashes, arose one figure.

    "HOT ROCKETS!" Jo exclaimed, leaping to her feet and rushing forwards to hug her robot tightly. "YOU DID IT! WE WON!"

    Jo's robot whirred tiredly, tossing the remains of the Scarab to the side as it sank to its knees in exhaustion.

    But it had won, and it had made its master happy, which was all that really mattered.

    Zurg felt the explosion, too, and he was subsequently knocked off his feet at the violent shockwave.

    A crater was all that was left, black smoke billowing, and he already knew what had happened. It was the self-destruct sequence...and if that had gone off....that meant he had--

    "LOST!?" He shouted in dismay, getting up. He had lost!? Him!? The Evil Emperor Zurg to Jo Schmo!? NO! No, this wasn't happening! He...he...Hey, was that flying shrapnel coming his way? With a hand shielding his eyes, he looked up, squinting at the sun and noticed....wait...WAIT!

    With a startled scream, the Evil Emperor was suddenly showered in robot parts--from both hers and his. Appendage after appendage landed upon him, and he was soon buried in a mound of metal and scrap.

    "Uuguh...ugh...." He groaned, barely crawling out of it to the point of passing out.

    Jana was on the edge of her seat-one more inch and she would fall off. The whole match had been amazing! Both the robots looked equally cool. The Fixer couldn't even fix robots like that in only an hour. She didn't know who to be rooting for. On one hand she had Jo, who was also from Trade World, and on the other, there was Zurg, the Emperor she always looked up to hearing news about on Trade World.

    She continued to watch intently, paying close attention to any glimpse of the two robots duking it out with each other. You never knew what ideas one could come up with when examples of greatness were right before your eyes.

    Watching the bots fight brought back memories of her younger childhood when she would have robot brawls with some of the other kids on Trade World. She wondered if maybe Jo had ever done that, but she soon shook those thoughts behind. It was the right moment too. Right when she focused back on the fight she heard an explosion, that of a self destruct sequence.

    "....He didn't........no wait yes he did...." she started. "Great job you guys! That was so cool!" she yelled from her seat. "Those were the coolest looking bots ever! And they were only made in one hour." she said, cheerfully like a little kid who just found out the greatest thing in the world.

    "I didn't doubt you could win for a second!" she called to Jo. It would be stupid to say she wasn't excited, even though during the last part of the battle she couldn't see anything that was going on. She watched as Zurg got buried in robot.....guts. She ran up to get a closer look at Zurg.

    "Hey Zurg, are you ok?" she asked watching as he crawled out from under the pile.

    Patting her robot's chassis proudly and with a fire in her eyes, Jo whipped out her wrench and marched over to Zurg.

    He had just managed to crawl out of the rubble and was still lying prone on the ground, trying to catch his breath, when she pressed a heavy boot against his chest, pinning him to the ground. Pointing her wrench directly in his face, her grin widening to the point of it looking downright unnerving.

    "I, Jo Pistonne, hereby tell you, the Evil Emperor Zurg, that for your humiliating defeat..."

    She paused, as if to consider it, letting the seconds drag by.

    "...you will have to take me out on a date."

    She grinned widely, letting the words sink in. "A fitting punishment, no?"

    A..A what!? She wanted him to take out to what?! He tried to squirm from under her boot or get a hand to swat that wrench away, but what was the use. He was finished. Finished.

    There was no point anymore. The Evil Emperor, defeated and now humiliated, felt his eyes roll into the back of his head and he collapsed.

    Right then and there on the hot, grainy sand.

    Kev strolled out from the dark corner of the Arena he had been watching the fight from. He wasn't too interested in large robots. He just simply thought the fight would be interesting.

    And indeed it was! He wasn't sure who would win! It was so close, but Jo's robot ended up winning.

    Jo approached Zurg, and Kev took a few steps closer, interested in what she had to say.


    "...you will have to take me out on a date."


    Kev blinked once. Twice. He blinked a few more times. He blinked as Zurg fainted. And then he started laughing. Mentally of course. But it was lively, vigorous laughter. For once, he had been right! Jo was interested in Zurg! Kev laughed hard as he trotted over to the Winner and the Loser.

    "I knew it!" Kev said to Jo with a playful punch to her arm. He bent down to Zurg's unconscious body. "You dog you~~ This is the second date in one week! I have good vibes about this one~~" Kev said happily, before turning on his heel and leaving the arena, still laughing in amusement.

    Carrie had taken several pages of notes as a result of the whole battle. Many interesting design ideas and theories came from watching those two in action.

    "Huh, Zurg's bot lost. Was not expecting that." Carrie said, impressed with Jo. She'd have to discuss robotics with Jo sometime. She clearly knew a lot more than she appeared to know.

    And... no way. Her kittycat ears must have been deceiving her. Did Jo really just ask for a... a date?

    "...she wants to date him as her prize." Carrie said in disbelief. "Wow, Zurgy gets around."

    Zakharov was quite surprised by the outcome of this robotic brawl. Zurg losing? This was unheard of! But, even with that final firework show, Jo's robot survived.

    "And there we have it, ladies and gentlemen. This concludes the festivities." Zakharov stated, the hoverpad floating up towards Arrow and a floating orb.

    "Quite a match, I must say." he mentioned to Arrow and what he presumed to be Sranko.

    Arrow blinked in surprise, awakened from his sunny day stupor by the victor. Wow, the girl won. Luck did most of the job sure, but still, Zurgs' robot was in pieces. And did his webbed ears deceive him? A date? Oh poor Zurg. The dragon recoiled in equal parts sympathy and amusement.

    "Quite a match, I must say."

    "Indeed, I was certainly not expecting that" rumbled the dragon appreciatively while looking at the decapitated remains of the field. A bling of silver whooshed around the ring and back, zooming for Arrow and the announcer. The metallic eye smacked into Arrow's waiting palm, his claws slowly revealing the optic.

    "Now perhaps we shall see what went on down there, eh?" he tapped the blue eye cryptically with his talon points. The little creation of Srankos' hovered into life and projected a hologram recording of the underground fight for the two to observe. Arrow watched them grapple with good humor, a chuckle on his teeth. "Whoever originally said brain over brawn must be rolling in their grave" he mused.

    The hologram ended with a blip and the orb fell back into the dragons waiting claws, which curled protectively around it as if it were a pearl. "Right, I must return this to Sranko" he looked off into the sky with his wings raised, judging the currents. "Seeya Zakharov". The dragon turned outwards from the arena and let himself fall off the edge, his wings catching on the air and carrying him off on the wind.

    Hellboy pointedly ignored Morgana, but joyfully greeted Hanna and Jana, and waved at Arrow who had decided to take a perch on high and at Zakharov still floating around on his hoverpad.

    Now, the demon had come to see an epic fight, and truly, neither participant failed to deliver. Zurg’s robot was stealthy, and Jo’s robot was powerful. Things were getting close, really close, and the tension rose when the two robots moved their battle underground. Judging the Scarab’s previous techniques, it seemed like all hope was lost, especially when that large explosion rocked the arena.

    But it was Jo’s robot that was victorious, and Hellboy’s jaw actually dropped open. “Holy flipping shit,” he said in awe. “Zurg lost!” Wow, that Jo sure was something. Damn lucky, but more than a worthy adversary.

    He started to make his way down to the arena itself, side-stepping rubble and all the like, and arrived just in time to hear Jo ask Zurg out on a date.

    Now, Hellboy’s hearing was pretty good, but he was sure that the explosion had did something to his ears because he couldn’t have heard that right. But everybody’s reactions confirmed his suspicions, even Kev’s mental laughter.

    And so, not being able to help himself, he braced his hands on his knees, and roared with laughter.
