SNUG AS A BUG
CHROMO'S PL: 1 (SUPPRESSED | 168k BASE)
It was official. Chromo was sick and tired of Namek. He wanted to go back to Earth. Earth!! The place that was the breeding grounds of of all his pain and still-lingering misdeeds was somehow the lesser evil compared to this planet. Namek was boring to the child. It was cool for awhile. But now that that stupid girl had come in and ruined everything, he wanted off this planet with Tarch and far away from her. But noooo. His friend's ship conveniently broke down, leaving him stuck with her if he wanted to stay by Tarch! Why did he want to bring Belle with, anyways? She'd been nothing but trouble, tragic backstory or not. Thusly, Chromo buzzed off to solve this problem. There had to be something he could use to either fix or replace Tarch's pod with, right?
He looked for hours. There was nothing but green and blue on this godforsaken planet. The suns never set, basking the land in the same light for day after day. Chromo couldn't tell how long he'd been looking, but he knew he was getting tired. He heaved in exhaustion and frustration, stomping through the Northern Scar with bottled rage. "STUPID--!!!" He released some of his aggression, kicking a pebble into the stratosphere and stirring up a torrent of dust. He growled and lumbered forwards, swatting at a bush with a hiss before it's branches lashed back into his face from the push. He would have incinerated it and the entire forest in a fit of frustration, if it wasn't for what he saw when his face was slapped to the side. He saw the usual green, the usual blue, but now a shiny silver as well.
"Is that...? Oh. Oh heck... Oh HECK!" Glee filled his tone as he skipped forwards, approaching the shiny sphere. He fluttered around it with an excited squeal. A spacepod! And it looked like it was in good condition! He hugged the thing. They'd be off Namek in no time now, for sure! Now, he just had to make sure this thing worked before he got too excited...
Prying the hatch open with his claw, Chromo skittered into the pilot's seat and tapped at the panels and controls. He didn't know what any of the buttons and the words that popped up meant, but it made beeps and buzzed without sparking or smoking, so it had to be in working condition! He sighed in contentment, nestling against the cushions of the seat. Chromo yawned. He had to have been looking for hours- he was dead tired, paying no mind to the pod door closing behind him. Maybe a little nap wouldn't hurt...
The pod began to fall back into sleep mode alongside it's new "passenger," the lights inside flickering off. As Chromo began to daze off, a fleeting thought crossed his mind. What if someone else already called dibs on this pod? Was he stealing? Tarch said stealing was bad...
Chromo snored. As his consciousness faded, he assured himself that what Tarch didn't know couldn't hurt him.
