Chapter 43: Johnny's Surprise

Johnny and Mike were standing next to each other in the abandoned warehouse. Johnny had just inadvertently low fived Mike after he successfully navigated the obstacle course with his super speed. "Dude, that was too easy," Johnny said.

"Yeah, I know. Like easy cheesy."

"First, I meant that to be a bad thing. Secondly, I think you mean, like easy peasy."

"But I prefer cheese to peas."

Johnny thought for a second, then nodded in agreement. "Alright, I think part of the problem was it wasn't really an obstacle course. Nothing was moving or anything, so it must have felt just like walking around boxes."

"Well, to be honest, I'm not sure I've ever done that."

"But you could imagine that sensation," Johnny replied. This time it was Mike nodding in agreement. "I have an idea to make it harder, but I have to go get something. You have to wait here since I am not flying you up here again."

"Fine. I'll amuse myself with my hats," Mike said.

So, Johnny flew off, literally, while Mike amused himself with his hats. About 15 minutes later, Johnny returned. Several hats were on the floor beside Mike as he now had a beret on.

"Ho ho! Ah hope yew brought une baguette per moi," Mike said in a poor French accent.

"Hey, that's a pretty good imitation of a poor Frenchman!"

"Merci! Oooh, what you got there??"

"Well, I figured we needed to train you on how to dodge stuff coming at you fast, but shooting a gun at you would be dangerous, and we don't have a gun anyway. But, I remembered I did have this."

Mike's eyes got wide. "Whoa!"

What was it? A rubber band ball? One of those weird pizza shooter toys from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Tune in next week, when you find out what exactly Johnny had.
