Sorry for the long wait everybody, I've been pretty
but anyhoo, here's the next part.
Chapter 2.5: The Betrayal
The tolling of a grandfather clock brought Dr. Fetus back to the present. It was almost midnight, and he was a bit tired. He trudged up to the third floor, crawling into bed and sinking into the covers.
But his sleep was uneasy, full of dreams of Brownie, Bandage Girl, Meat Boy, his father, Inspector Barton, Jensen with a syringe, salt and needles, Jensen with a syringe, sneaking closer, creeping up to a crack in his jar...
Dr. Fetus tossed and turned in bed, then snapped awake. Jensen wasn’t sneaking in his dream. Jensen had a syringe in real life!
Dr. Fetus jolted upward, springing out of bed and startling Jensen.
“What are you doing?!” Dr. Fetus shouted, shoving Jensen back. “What is that?”
“Your-your...medication, sir,” Jensen said.
Rage filled Dr. Fetus. He had no medication. Jensen had been poisoning him, for who knew how long. Something in his mind snapped, and a cold clarity came across the world.
“I don’t have a head problem,” Dr. Fetus said, advancing menacingly. “Nothing is wrong with me, after my second birth. Rage just breaks the effects of this drug you’ve been feeding me!”
“Please, sir, it’s not like that!”
“This drug is keeping my mind under, keeping me from thinking clearly. That’s why I could build myself a new suit, but now can do nothing!”
Dr. Fetus began to laugh, almost insane. “I am just as powerful as before!”
“Please, sir, don’t hurt me, I only did what I was told!”
“Who told you?” Dr. Fetus roared, punching Jensen out of the way. “Who?!!?”
Jensen gasped, the wind knocked out of him. “Sir...please...
” Dr. Fetus kicked Jensen.
.” Jensen whispered. Dr. Fetus paused.
!?” he bellowed. The traitor still haunted him, had always haunted him! He had been keeping Dr. Fetus away all these years, and Jensen had been working for him!
Rage filled Dr. Fetus, more powerful than anything he had felt before. He could feel the effects of the drug struggling to keep his mind under, but it was wearing off. A new power began to bubble up inside of him. Something he had made, something in his suit he could use...
Jensen, realizing what was happening, grabbed the syringe and lunged forward, trying to return Dr. Fetus’s mind to a state of lethargy.
Dr. Fetus roared, and the two grappled, Jensen trying to stick the syringe in, Dr. Fetus trying to keep it back.
“Brownie... you can’t win!” Dr. Fetus shouted. “I will destroy Meat Boy, and Bandage Girl will be mine!!!”
With these words, he launched Jensen into a wall, cracks splintering it from the impact.
A blue glow began to surround Dr. Fetus, and he seemed to hover in the air. The suit radiated pulses, pushing him off the ground. A living gravity orb. Almost by instinct, he flipped Jensen off.
Energy crackled through his suit, fuses sparking and taking their cues. With a surge of electricity, a huge blue laser, in the shape of a hand flipping someone off, blasted Jensen out through the wall, shooting him onto the lawn. The laser spawned from Dr. Fetus’s suit hand. He stared at it in wonder. This was true power, this was what Jensen had been hiding from him!
Dr. Fetus lunged out of the house, landing without any problem. He could obliterate anyone with a flick of his middle finger.
“At last, Jensen, I can finally destroy you,” Dr. Fetus said. “You betrayed me, and your life is forfeit.”
,” Jensen coughed. “You know......better than....any...anyone...that...that...that...nobody here...dies for...forever
Dr. Fetus laughed. “That’s where you’re wrong, Jensen. I have the power. I reign supreme! My laser can kill anyone... for good!”
He raised his hands, and flipped Jensen off with both both of them. A huge yellow laser, more powerful than the blue one, the same shape but larger, blasted forth, plowing into Jensen. There was an explosion of electricity and sparks, and then Jensen was gone. Dr. Fetus grinned, excited by the new powers revealed in his suit.
Dr. Fetus glared at the pile of ash that was formerly his traitorous servant. He was done with this pathetic life of luxury. He turned on the mansion, and began to float into the air, activating more of the suit's newfound abilities.
Focusing as hard as he could, he blasted the house with a huge, burning red laser. The house caught fire, and exploded, launching smoldering rubble all over the yard. Dr. Fetus glared, and pulled out the remote. It all seemed so simple, now. With a single thought, he repaired it, and pressed the button. An explosion swirled around him. He was back in control, and more powerful than ever!
Dr. Fetus grinned, and turned in the general direction of the sea, wings flapping. This time, he would destroy Meat Boy once and for all!
Brownie couldn’t protect them forever. Brownie, who had turned on him. Brownie, who had trapped him in this horrid, rich life on the third continent. Brownie, who betrayed him at the Salt Factory, when it really counted. Brownie...
Alright, that's all for now. I'm going to pick this back up, I promise. Again, sorry for the long wait.
