Twenty: Doom of a Discomfiter Part Thirteen

Newly transformed into a Ming the Merciless look-alike, the Discomfiter, together with the hapless minion who had been altered to resemble his old appearance, sought refuge in a vast fortress, overlooking the Bay of Naples. He hoped that, by flying to Europe, he might elude the vengeance of the Green Man.

The Green Man marshalled his forces for an assault on the Discomfiter's European base. Forced to give up his website, the Discmofiter ended his internet reign of terror by slandering John W. Loftus, in the hope that the Green Man would go after him instead, or at least be deflected from the trail.

The Green Man said...

Maybe our chaperones can talk. Ms. Madison insisted on coming, too. I'm sure we can elude them if we want to...

the girl in grey said...

Why, Green Man! I hope our chaperones have enough in common to talk!

The Green Man said...

Like battle, murder and sudden death? I think they've got enough in common.

the girl in grey said...

Me too

L. Madison said...

You can't elude me,grey girlie...

the girl in grey said...

And who's saying I WANT to elude you, Miss Madison?

L. Madison said...

My suspicious mind, that's what.

the girl in grey said...

Oh, but I'n not that sort of girl at all!

The Green Man said...

Ladies!
