Another day gave another dollar when it came to the workers in the mass-producing factories for Hetap. Clangs of metal and swivels of devices echoed throughout the factory, the machines inside forming the majority of the work force. The riveted machines that slapped on the can tops and shaped the bottles of soda squeaked all about in places that were not well-oiled, whirred softly in the somewhat clogged vents- some even bellowed loudly if they were having heavier problems. Hisses and cracks of the soda being sealed in echoed, though the two androids running the soda pumping station had already nabbed some of the fresh cans of the flavored drinks. The vats of soda reached high up to the hundred-foot ceiling, the liquids mixed and churned, fruit or flavoring diced and mixed in with a constant metallic and industrial smell emanating from the outside machines.One of the two android sodaworkers took a sip of his drink, head pulled back and the fizzy water pouring down into his mouth from above. The robot himself was made of steel, a bald metal head filled with rivets and dents telling a story of ruggedness and close calls. How the gruff droid had managed to suck up a job here instead of somewhere that seemed more fit to his liking, though, was a mystery to his coworker. The smaller android's constant smile remained still, overalls drizzled with some stray splotches of soda from several odd leaks earlier, body unkempt and dirties, but free of any other blemishes from battle.
"'Ey, Phillip." The smaller one chimed, taking another swing of her drink while eyeing the towering vats that created the carbonated drinks. "...Was it juzt me, or did I see a somthin' movin in the storage vats?" She chimed, eyes narrowed. What she thought was a dark shape moving of it's own accord in the cache of the Super Sugar Strawberry flavored Hetap vat. The other android looked over and narrowed his eyes, letting out an emotionless grunt before turning his gaze away. "It's nothing, Slot." He folded his arms. The curious female, though, swore she saw a dark shape move around again. And was the liquid... draining? It was certainly not as full as it was a few seconds ago. Still, she shrugged, trusting Phillip's judgement. "Well, if ya say so."
Minutes passed, the ground sometimes shaking, likely from the ventilation every now and then. Slot looked over again after awhile, and the vat was half-empty. She tapped the other android on the shoulder as cracks began to course through the container that once held kiloliters of soda. Neither could get a word out before the rest was drained, sucked in by some mysterious force. Soon after, though, all of hell broke loose in the form of a tiny, tiny beetle."rrrrrrrrrrrrrRRRRRRRRrrrRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-"With that mighty, high-pitched, bratty scream of a battle cry, the two androids could only make out a trail of explosive energy as the bug that had been slurping up all of their sugariest soda flung himself off into the outside reaches off the factory somehow, bouncing off floors and walls like a ping-pong ball before soaring through a nearby door with no real rhyme or reason, leaving the two staring in disbelief and shock at the odd insanity of what just happened.
Chromo had been in heaven the moment he found and worked his way inside the Hetap Factory. He downed liter after liter, galloon after gallon, until his mind itself had seemingly melted into soda. Somehow, it seemed his power had increased alongside his deranged sugar rush and explosive tendencies. The bug lurched past a group of touring students, several workers, a job interview, the manager himself, before diving right into another vat of even more sugary liquid, which was now draining at an alarming pace while he began to slurp up every last ounce. How Chromo's sugar-fueled rampage would be stopped, though, was a mystery to the now screaming and fleeing employees who fled from the falling pipes and tidal waves of fallen soda that Chromo had left in his atomic, bouncy trail...
