It’s been a long time coming I admit for the continuation of PS Cooper. I will also admit it hasn’t caught on very well. These are only intended for fun. I always found it enjoyable writing about silly things such as talking electronics. I hope this story can help you escape from the mundane world. Even if it’s for a brief moment.
The room was cold and damp unlike the rest of the so called “sanctuary” as described by Curvy. Cooper had fought the temptation back and was imprisoned all alone. He begged and pleaded for Okura and Sim to snap out of whatever spell she had put them under but to no avail. He had already come to the realization that he would spend the rest of his days locked up. Time had passed by and the whiskers that were showing was unusual but prominent.
“I’m all alone,” he said, “This is it Cooper, you really messed up big this time.”
“No you’re not,” said a figure in the shadows.
“Who’s there? Show yourself,” said Cooper.
Out from the shadows stepped Mike much to Cooper’s surprise.
“It doesn’t matter now. I knew all along you would need me and so it has come to fruition. You should have listened to me Cooper,” said Mike in an ominous voice.
“I don’t understand. How could you possibly get in here without anyone noticing you? I mean it seems quite impossible.”
“Look, if I have to explain everything that doesn’t make sense in this adventure then people are really going to pick apart the plot holes and ask all kinds of questions. The only thing YOU need to know Cooper is that I am here to rescue you. Simple as that,” Mike tried to explain but not really wanting to explain or even knowing if he could actually explain it at all.
“So basically I shouldn’t ask any more questions and I should let you help me,” said Cooper who appeared to realize this was the one true answer.
The two gathered around the door with Mike looking eager to break free. He grabbed the handle turned it ever so slightly. The door started to open.
“Oh you gotta be kidding me,” said Cooper as he rolled his eyes.
“Just go with it,” said Mike as he peered out the door. “The coast is clear, let’s move.”
Cooper followed closely behind Mike as they made their way down a dark hallway. At the end were double doors with no guards attending. As they reached the door Mike peaked out into the wonderful world that had mesmerized their friends.
“It’s empty,” said Mike.
“How are we going to find the others?” Asked Cooper.
Mike sighed heavily.
“What if we just escape?” He said.
“You’re joking, right?”
“No I’m not. They clearly wanted to be here otherwise they would have been locked away with you. I don’t see why we have to risk our bits for those two,” Mike said who was serious about leaving them behind.
“They acted as if they were under a spell Mike. I’ve never seen anything like it, ever.”
“Yeah but that isn’t saying much Cooper. You was locked up in that pawnshop for how long?”
“That isn’t fair and you know it,” Cooper said visibly angered by the comment.
“Okay, Okay. See those doors on the other side of the room?” Mike pointed to several doors all the way across the empty room.
“One of those doors leads out back into the beast’s undercarriage, so the other must be where Sim and Okura are at.”
“I don’t even remember doors. What in the hell is going on?” Cooper said confused and annoyed.
“Are we going to do this every time something comes up that might mess up the continuity of the story?” Mike asked annoyed as well.
“You’re right, I’m sorry.”
“Okay, now focus. We can’t risk getting caught so we have to be very quiet. I’ll look in the two rooms on the left and you check the two rooms on the right. Sound like a plan?” Mike said as he planned out the plan.
“Sure that sounds like a plan,” Cooper answered back in a nervous tone.
“Don’t be nervous. If we get caught they probably won’t kill us right away.”
Cooper and Mike slowly crept from the door and started to make their way across the room. It was dead silent and every footstep was louder than the previous one. The air was thick and smelled of melted plastic.
“Something got hot and heavy in here,” whispered Mike.
“I don’t even want to think about it,” replied Cooper in disgust.
At about the halfway point across the room they were stopped dead in their tracks as a beam of light lit them up. They couldn’t see anything as the light blinded them from their surroundings.
“Who dares to try and escape my sanctuary?!” Came a voice loud and angry.
“We wasn’t escaping,” said Mike.
“Yeah we just need to step out for a few. You know we dabble in a little of this and a little of that,” Cooper said unconvincingly.
“Silence!” The voice belted out.
“This is not going to be good,” said Cooper.
“No, no it isn’t Coop.”
“Does my eyes deceive me? Is that Mike the eldest of toasters?” Curvy said in a curious tone.
Mike sighed as the beam of light went away.
“What in the hell Mike?” Cooper asked in shock.
“How long has it been darling? Ten, perhaps fifteen years? One loses count when you are living it up in paradise. You could have been a part of ALL this you know.”
Mike winced as the comments from Curvy almost made him sick.
“I’d say it’s been more like twenty years and a day hasn’t gone by where I haven’t been thankful of the choice I made,” said Mike.
Curvy scoffed at his comment.
“You know you missed this glorious piece. Now play like a good toaster and kneel before me.”
Mike gave Cooper a worried look, one that you would make if something startled you and you wasn’t sure if you messed in your pants or not.
“There is no escaping my sanctuary. Ask your two friends.”
About that time Sim and Okura stepped out from the shadows. Curvy belted out a laughter that shook the very foundation of the beast.
“I could perhaps be persuaded into making a deal,” said Curvy with an evil smile.
“And what might persuade the dreamy of dreamy?” Said Mike as he tried not to roll his eyes.
“It’s not going to be to your liking, however, it’s the only way. I want you to beg. Beg to stay with me and I will consider letting your friends leave.”
“Not a chance!” Cooper shouted.
“I got this,” Mike said with a reassuring wink. “Oh mighty dreamy Curvy. Please, I beg of you. Please let me stay.”
Cooper was at a loss for words. He tried to protest what Mike was saying but the words wouldn’t come out. At some point he’d look back and realize it was his own self preservation that kept him from speaking up. Mike was willing to sacrifice himself for his friends. That was all that mattered.
“Oh come now. Surely you can do a little better,” teased Curvy as if this were some game to her.
“For the love of all that is holy in this sacred sanctuary of hot steamy plastic. Please I beg of you. My Goddess. My piece hotness with a short window, let me place my shiny self upon your throne, said Mike with somewhat more luster but not much.
“Oh hell no!” Shouted Curvy. This time with rage in her voice.
“I don’t understand. I did what you asked. What did I do wrong?”
“It wasn’t you that did anything wrong!” Curvy was clearly having a moment.
“Then who?” Mike asked confused much like everyone else.
“It was his brother! It was ALL because of his brother!” Curvy screamed in dramatic fashion as she pointed towards PS Cooper.
Thank you for reading this short, silly, stupid, outlandish, goofy and educational story. The big question now is, will PS Cooper and his friends escape the clutches of Curvy? Also, will you even give a damn? Until next time!
