The Scoobys rose slowly and carefully, unable to take their eyes from the advancing army of Teddy Bears. Their footfalls made little puffs as they marched towards the Scoobs, perched atop the small island of boulders. Their small furry heads bobbed in time with their steps, as they continued their Cadence of Doom. Their numbers had to be at least 10,000 strong.
As if the approaching ranks of Bears bearing arms wasn't enough to stun Spyral, and the rest of The Scoobs, at the far rear fringes of the foot-tall army could now be seen still other bears pulling and pushing small catapults and trebuchets, ballistas and battering rams.
This wasn't just an army. It was a siege force.
"They're really armed for Bear!" Kay said in bewilderment.
"Let's go," Ragner yelled again. "Fall back to the Fort."
"Hurry," Chryse called as she ran close on Ragnars heels. "We have to prep the fort to repel invasion."
"Good thing we stocked up on provisions," Drumheller shouted back.
"And you thought I was in too much of a hurry to get the Big Screen TV moved into the Fort last week," Sandworm said to Jila as they crossed the small open field towards shelter.
"I'm just glad Gunny and I got the automated plasma turrets installed last month," replied Rae.
A sudden high-pitched trilling noise sounded in the air.
"ARTILLERY!!!," Emram shouted, his arms going up to cover his head. "QUICK, everyone spread OUT, don't bunch UP, look for COVER!"
"No,no, it's okay," Spyral shouted, reaching into his wing. Removing his hand from his wing, the Angel held a brightly colored cellphone, with a red, blue and green aloha preint. He put the phone to his ear, as he ran and shouted into it. "Hello?!.....Twig?!.....Kinda busy right now!.....No! Never too busy for you!.....That's Great!......Of course I miss you!....Can't wait to see you too!......Tell everyone I said Hi!.....Bye then!
"Oh, that was so sweet," Jila said as they ran for their lives.
"I'm only judging on my experience, but I've never seen such a deficient species.
How did humans make it thru a cycle, even HALF a cycle, without KILLING each other?
You have no special abilities. You're not particularly smart, can hardly smell, can barely see, and you're not even VAGUELY physically or spiritually imposing!
Is there ANYTHING humans do well?"
