winner of each game will get a Crystal which will then go towards helping TheFourth Dr. and The Thirteenth Manager
Though, it’s the winner of
battle which will decide things overall. TheDr.’s could win every game, but if Fourth looses the final battle in The CrystalDome, well … that’ll be curtains for all of you
,’ Raljex gave a little chuckle. ‘
,’ he said as they came into the centre of an Aztec temple. The sides rose high on all sides while pillars and statues devoted to Aztec gods leered over them. ‘
What’ll it be gents?The Manager gets first pick, The next time The Dr. and so on and so fourth, etc,etc. So, Mister Martin? Physical? Mental? Skill? Or Mystery?
’ There was a huddle from The Managers before a quick decision was made.‘Skill,’ The Thirteenth Manager declared.‘
A Skill game?
’ Raljex said, holding his chin. ‘
Interesting … and who is to play thisSkill game?
’ ‘I shall,’ The First Manager said, stepping forwards. ‘First come, first served.’ ‘We can’t send in
First,’ Thirteenth said as The Dr.’s formed their own huddle. ‘He’stoo inexperienced!’ ‘Really,’ The First Dr. whimpered. ‘I seriously have,
freakin’ idea what thehell’s goin on here!’ ‘Fucking hell,’ Fifth snapped. ‘Can some of us take him to one side and give the little shitan education, like, pronto?’ ‘I’m no little shit!’ First protested.‘Hush up,’ Ninth scolded him. ‘You’re a weak link we need to fix or we’re all screwed.’ ‘So, who’s going first then?’ Thirteenth hissed.‘I’ll do it,’ The Second Dr. said, standing up straight and brushing his fringe from hiseyes.‘You sure?’ Thirteen raised an eyebrow. ‘You? Skill?’ ‘I’m handy me, mate,’ The Second Dr. said with a tooth grin. ‘You should know that. I’mthe best guitar player here. I’m the best at pool. I’ll kick anybody at Wii Sports. I’m ourman for Skill games!’ ‘Yes, but you can only play once,’ Fourth reminded him. ‘And I doubt they’ll have WiiSports in an Aztec-themed Zone.’ ‘I’ll chance it,’ Second said with a shrug. ‘It’s Aztec, right, so it can’t be that hard!’ ‘Don’t underestimate The Supreme Being,’ Thirteenth said warningly. ‘It’s that kind of attitude that’ll loose us this whole contest. He’s wily, he’s creative and above all he’s themost evil bastard this Universe will ever know. Remember, eyes front, don’t take youreyes of Nigel for an instant, and do not, I repeat, do not, fuck this up.’ ‘You say that like you’ve got no faith in me,’ The Second Dr. smirked, taking the newlyuncorked spare bottle of Whiskey from Tenth and taking a long, hard swig. ‘Now I’mready,’ he beamed and walked over to join the First Manager where he stood next toRaljex by one of the many stone doors that led inside The Temple.’ ‘
You ready boys?’
Raljex said, almost giggling with glee.‘Yep,’ The Second Dr. nodded.‘Of course I am,’ The First Manager puffed.‘
,’ Raljex nodded, taking a dice from his pocket and rolling it across a smallstone table by the door. It came to rest on a number one. ‘
One Assistant for each of you
,’ Raljex declared. ‘
Can’t tell you who, as I’ve yet to decide. There’s no timelimit, the game ends once there’s a victor. I won’t tolerate cheating, and no punch-ups, but I will look the other way on verbal abuse
.’ ‘Can’t say fuckin’ fairer than that,’ The Second Dr. smirked.‘
Well then, gentlemen
,’ Raljex said, throwing open the door for them. ‘
The very best of luck to the pair of you
.’ ‘Well,’ The Second Dr. said, politely offering his hand to The Manager. ‘May the best man win, egh?’ ‘Don’t worry,’ The First Manager said, knocking aside The Dr.’s hand. ‘I will.’ ‘Oh, blimey,’ The Second Dr. replied, rolling his eyes as he followed his quarry into thedark room. ‘This should be easier than I thought.’ ‘How do you figure that?’ The First Manager snapped.
