Falcon Boy: Vol. 1: 68 ”Is Donny Really Donny?’ Part II

TroublebotDoodah are proud endorsers of Fuzzy Cola© and you see their photograph on every bottle. When I say proud, I actually mean oblivious – it is Doodah’s management who are ‘proud’ to endorse Fuzzy Cola©. Doodah are simply Doodah as they sing the theme tune:

If you’re not feelin’ buzzy

Why not reach for a bottle of

Fuzzy Cola?

It’ll bowl you over

Fuzzy Cola

We’ll win you over

with Fuzzy Fuzzy Cola

Fuzzy Cola

Because

Fuzzy is our Fizzness!!

Fuzzy Cola© is banned in many countries and is also on the World Health Organisation’s Dangerous Products Watch List. That’s fine, but pop concerts are different things altogether and there were crates of the stuff everywhere. As Councillor Footswerve reminded his wife, ‘It isn’t all rotten teeth and obesity, you know. They do a lot for charity that no one ever hears about.’

Normally, Ellis would not be allowed to be in the same room as a bottle of the stuff.

But in extraordinary times and extraordinary situations, it was extraordinarily important to be able to make extraordinary exceptions, and Ellis was sure that at this moment of extraordinary crisis, even her Mum and Dad would be extraordinarily understanding and momentarily relax their extraordinarily rigid rules on the subject long enough for her to grab a bottle and use it to disable an extraordinarily dangerous Troublebot.

‘If this stuff really does destroy your teeth, makes your eyes go in and out of focus, and causes small children in other countries to not only go hungry, but also have to leave school before they are ready in order to do a job they hate,’ Ellis said out loud, ‘then I wonder what it might do to a Troublebot?’

Just before ‘Donny’ managed to break free, Ellis stepped forward and poured the bottle of Fuzzy Cola© into the Troublebot’s grille.

Author: Barnaby Taylor

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: http://bit.ly/VIRO1UKKindle http://bit.ly/VIROBOOK1 Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at www.falconboy.ie.
