I’m Tim, and I’m Sam. We live in a small, brown house on a hill. We’re poor but happy. Our parents died in a car accident years ago, that’s why we live with our Grandpa Joe and Grandma Annie. Well … that’s what we thought until now.
One day, while we were enjoying our picnic in Sunny Park, Sam heard a mysterious ticking sound as he picked up a sandwich from the picnic basket. He slowly turned it over and found … a bomb!
“Out of the way!” he shouted. Picking up the basket, Sam threw it in the river immediately where it exploded.
“That was close!” said Tim. “Where did it come from?”
Our grandparents’ faces’ looked grim. “We didn’t want to tell you this but the time has come,” said Grandpa Joe.
“The truth is your parents didn’t die in a car accident, your evil uncle, Dr. Stick killed them! He planned to build a robot army but he didn’t have enough money to do it. He asked your parents for money but they didn’t give it to him.”
“So he killed your parents and stole their money!” He knows your parents left some money to you boys and now he’s after it!”
Suddenly, we were overcome by anger and swore to avenge our parents’ death.
We called our friend, Jasper, to help us avenge our parents! Jasper agreed.
“First, we’ll ask people in town if they know where his secret factory is. When we find it, I’ll shut down all the controls and call the police. When there’s no power left, Dr. Stick will be left defenceless and you can get your revenge!” said Jasper.
Three weeks later, we investigated to no avail, until one day, an old man approached us.
“Were you looking for a secret factory?” he whispered. “Well, I know one on Genessian Island, but it’s heavily protected by a robot army.”
At last! We were closer to defeating our evil uncle!
The next morning, we found a boat to Genessian Island and saw hundreds of robots holding blasters.
“How can we get through?” asked Jasper.
“Over there,” said Sam, pointing towards the sewage.
“Gross, but there’s no choice,” sighed Jasper. “I’ll look for the control room. You find Dr. Stick.”
After crawling through, we found the secret factory and Dr. Stick!
Suddenly, all the lights turned off! Jasper had succeeded!
“What’s going on?” yelled Dr. Stick.
We jumped out, “It’s us, Uncle. We know what you did and now it’s time to pay!”
“Tim and Sam!” said Dr. Stick, nervously.
“It's nice to see you! Why don’t you sit down? There’s no need to hurt anyone. Family doesn’t hurt each other, do they?” he smiled sickly.
“Tell our parents that,” said Tim, angrily. He grabbed one of the weapons lying around and pointed it at Dr. Stick.
Tim wanted to shoot and make him pay for our parents’ death.
He looked at Dr. Stick in front of him. He saw that he was old and selfish. He had no family or friends, only his robot army. He felt sorry for him.
He put the weapon down and said to Dr. Stick, “What you did was unforgivable, but we won’t take revenge on you because we don’t want to be like you. The police will be here soon, your time is up.”
We walked out of the factory, and saw the police had just arrived. We just had enough time to see our uncle handcuffed before returning to our small house on the hill.1 / 14
