Chapter 25: The Newspaper Article

The next morning, Johnny woke up to see Mike in the kitchen. He was wearing a chef's hat and cooking breakfast.

"Hey, babe!" Mike called. "Look at me! Chef's hat! We got the power!"

"Good Morning, Starshine. The Earth says, 'Hello!'" Johnny said as he sat down at the table.

Mike looked happy to see Johnny still had powers as well but was a bit confused by the greeting. "Um, well, tell the Earth I say 'Hi,' I guess."

Johnny picked up the newspaper and started flipping through it. "Why do we still pay for the newspaper?"

"Cause otherwise it would be stealing."

"You are misinterpreting my words. I mean, why do we get the paper? You can read everything online for free." Johnny said, as he turned to the inside of the Metro Section.

"You can't read the comics online easily. Too many clicks."

"Hmm." Johnny frowned. "That's strange."

"Why? You like clicking forever?"

"What? No, I'm talking about this article." Johnny pointed to the back page of the newspaper. "It says here that late last night, four different people were robbed at the ATM."

"That's not too str-"

"By a disco dancer."

"Well, still, I've heard stranger-"

"With ice breath."
