I watch the sky. Something's wrong. I see a portal open up beside me. Ratchet hasn't seen it yet. I poke my head through the portal seeing other kids talking. I look and it's wayyyy too anime style for me. Ratchet zooms off into the desert and I write down a note.
"When you wanna join me in saving the world with Ratchet and Clank (A lombax and robot. Don't mention they're names until they introduce themselves to you), look up and jump through the portal." The note says.
I crunch it into a ball and drop it through the portal. I giggle and suddenly, there are Blarg everywhere.
"Alright, let's get this over with." I smile.
I aim my grenades and throw them at the Blarg.
"I ain't letting you hurt any lombax!" I order.
They shoot at me. I dodge with ease. I throw more grenades. I go to throw another one when-
"Darn it! Out of ammo!" I groan.
A grenade comes to me and I dodge. I bash a box, getting more ammo. I see Ratchet coming back already. I smile and dive closer to him.
"Thanks for dropping in, Ratchet. Who's you're friend on your back?" I ask.
"Clank. Can we talk about this later?" He asks.
I nod and we throw more things at the guys.
"I've got you on holovid but it looks like there are more enemies moving in!" I hear Grim say from Ratchet's ears.
"Incoming Drop ship detected!" Clank warns.
A bomb goes to hit Ratchet and I run into him, making him move out of the way. By then, there's a warbot.
"This is harder than I thought." I frown.
"Ratchet! This place is a mess! Disassembled weapons and engine parts everywhere! Didn't you tell me you were going to clean it up last week?" Grim exclaims over Ratchet's earpiece.
Ratchet answers, "Sorry 'bout that! Got held up on a project!"
I ask sarcastically, "Did it have to do with altering space?"
He answers, "No."
"A beginners guide to quantum burst engines?" Grim asks.
Ratchet exclaims, "Just throw that anywhere! I have it bookmarked!"
"Fun with singularities and other cataclymic events?"
I burst out laughing.
"That can't be for educational purposes, Ratchet!" I exclaim.
Ratchet chuckles nervously, so I grab his omniwrench and throw it at the ship, causing a distraction, then I jump and blow it up.
"Can Grim open up now?" I ask.
"Ratchet, what in Zoni's name just exploded?" Grim orders as he opens the garage.
"Sorry about that Grim. Listen, get my tools ready. I found something in the desert I need to look at." Ratchet sighs.
I smile, "I'll be in there soon, Ratchet. I got something I have to do."
I walk over to where the portal is, where thankfully, no Blarg has fallen in. I facepalm as no one has noticed my note. I scrunch up another piece of paper and throw it at one of the kid's head. I wave and move, out of sight of the inside of the portal. Too bad I'm in the hot desert.
