Element Of Danger - Part Four



The Burrower continued it's way into the mountainside. Brains activated another switch which would test out the new pod vehicle's ultimate capability. Two smaller drills appeared from under neath the main drill head. They extended outwards to match the same length of the first drill. They both kicked in, forming a triangle formation. This was to increase the drill output. With that, Brains continued digging. Back at the Pod, Virgil crawled out into the desert using the Monobrake. He had equipped the vehicle with a spare medical kit and an oxygen tank in case Penelope needed it. He arrived at the tunnel mouth and waited for Brains to signal him. 

Virgil: Virgil to Brains, I'm standing by.

Brains: *Over the radio* FAB. It looks as if I- I'm almost through. 

He was right. The heavy dust plumes around him made vision almost impossible, but he was able to make out the truck dead ahead of him. The main doors had been pulverized with bedrock. The only exposed part of the hull was rear cargo doors. Stopping the motors, Brains threw the motors into reverse, the path he had created was stable enough for Virgil to enter. 

Brains:O -Okay Virgil. Burrowing complete. You made proceed. The air is thick with contaminants and it looks as if t -the cargo doors are jammed shut. Use the l-laser cutters.

Virgil: *Over the radio* Right. I'm heading in. 

Virgil placed on a breathing mask. He fired up the motors and steered the monobrake towards the tunnel. He waited before Brains was clear in the Burrower before he entered. As soon as he headed on inside, Virgil spotted the truck. He quickly assessed the situation. He had to cut to through hull next to cargo doors. He only hoped that Penelope could hold out long enough. He arrived at the hull and made a grab for the laser cutters. Inside the truck, Penelope battled the elements to stay awake. The smell of ionized gas hit her nasal senses. She could make out a shape through her distorted vision. It was Virgil's laser cutter.

Penelope: I'm....saved. They....found me.

The minutes ticked away until finally;

Virgil: *Kicks the door down* It's Okay Penelope, It's Virgil. Come on. Let's get you out of here.

A few minutes later after a long period of silence, The Monobrake emerged from the shadows. Virgil headed straight for the pod. Penelope clung onto the oxygen tank that was in the passenger seat. Virgil had decided to take her straight to the medical bay in Thunderbird 2.

Virgil: How are you feeling now, Penelope?

Penelope: Much better thank you. I really thought I was a dead this time. My main concern is the element. What are we going to do?

Virgil: Don't worry. Scott's handling it. My main priority is to collect Parker and fly you both straight to the hospital.

Penelope: Oh no! Parker!? Is he alright?

Virgil: He's a little shaken but he was the one who gave us the call. He'll be alright. 

Penelope: Oh that goodness. Sometimes, I'd wonder what I would do without him.

*****

Meanwhile, The small jeep continued down the one way stretch of road. When Thunderbird 1 soared right over head, The Hood began to panic. He wasn't going to get caught by International Rescue.

The Hood: Keep driving! I'm getting out of here!

Driver: Are you kidding? What about the General's package? We can make it.

The Hood: You fool! That was an International Rescue craft that flew over us! You'll never outrun them and I don't intent to be caught.

Passenger: *Reacting to the commotion.* What the hell do you think you're doing? We're in this together!

The Hood: *Pulls a gun on them* I don't think so. You will keep driving and I will make my escape. 

Driver: You crazy fool! At this speed you'll kill yourself!

The Hood: I'll take that chance!

Despite the high speed, The Hood opened the side door and dived headfirst into the sand. He rolled away into the underbrush, only receiving minor cuts to his head. Thunderbird 1 and road block were just over the horizon.

The Hood: I have failed once again. International Rescue haven't seen the last of me. They will pay for this!

Scott has touched down behind the police roadblock. He stood there amongst the seven officers which accompanied him. Just like the officers, He had his gun drawn. They got into position when they spotted the Jeep over the horizon.

Scott: There they are. Now remember should they fail to stop, aim for the tires. *Uses the microphone to call out* This is International Rescue. Pull over immediately!

The crooks didn't co-operate. Scott gave the signal and the police officer fired at the Jeep's front tires. The tires exploded, forcing the Jeep off the road. The Jeep swerved and landed in a ditch. With no other options available, the men surrendered. 

Driver: We give up! The element isn't worth it to us anymore.

Passenger: Yeah. We'll take our chances in jail.

A few minutes later, The police recovered the element. Scott inspected it. Fortunately, it was intact.

Scott: On behalf of International Rescue, thank you for your help.

Police chief: Happy to help. Unfortunately my boys couldn't find the third guy. He must have run off into the desert. 

Scott: Don't worry about him. I think we've tangled with him before. If he shows up again, we'll be ready for him. For now though I must get this element back to base right away. 

Scott returned to Thunderbird 1 and took off for base. He has placed the element safely in the passenger hold. 

*****

That evening approximately an hour of Scott returned, the boys gathered round in the lounge. All of them had been anticipating the results of Brains test with the element. The top secret scientist had been in his lab, extracting the element and mixing it with the fuel supply. During the wait, Jeff had received a private call from the hospital. It was good news about Penelope and Parker.

Jeff: That was the hospital. Both Penelope and Parker were discharged with only minor bruises and shock. Alan has seen to it that FAB 1 is returned to the manor.

Virgil: That's great news dad. It sure was a close one. I've never seen her so scared since that time at Anderbad. 

Scott: What about that guy who was after the element? I wonder if he's been found yet?

Jeff: If he has been caught then it would have made the news by now. 

Brains emerged from his lab with the results. They were the answers that Jeff had been waiting for.

Jeff: Well how did the tests go?

Brains: V -very good Mr Tracy. The element was able to disperse it's ionic properties i -into the fuels chemical structure. 

Virgil: Is that good?

Brains: It's b -better than good. I ran a simulation in the engine testing bay. The fuel had increased it's efficiency and output, increasing speed by another 30%

Jeff: That's terrific Brains. Well done. With our craft now running at an extra 30%, the chances of rescue have widened. This was a great investment for International Rescue. Whoever wanted that element wanted it to cause harm. Rest assured they'll never get to it again.

Virgil: That's right. When we're around, the world is in a better place.


*****

As for The Hood, all he could do was grumble and moan at the loss of his job. He had just survived an ear bashing from the General which ultimately led to him being fired. He sat there at his table with his head in his hands. 

The Hood: International Rescue will pay for this. One day I will vow my revenge for what they have done. They have cost me a job. Do you hear me! You will pay for International Rescue!! You will pay, pay!, PAY!!

Hey I'm Lee and I live in the UK, South-east to be specific. I love digital art and other art types that evolve around many TV shows, movies and other fantasy stuff. I'm just improving on my own talent. I'm not great but I'm not terrible either.

I love to draw and I love to make photo-manipulations for my favorite things that keep me interested. When it's made, I'll share it with my amazing viewers :)

The proudest thing I have ever made is the creation of the Marvel Dynamic Universe and the adventures of The Dynamic Spider-Man...then I killed him off. That was even more fun.

Recently, I have become an amateur Photographer who's been studying it for a hobby but might eventually consider chasing a career out of it. Who knows I might just be that good at it
