How We Got Together
Later That Night
Erika, Dwayne, Jo, Mack and Garth sat on the flight deck of the S.S.
Dark Horse. Everyone was watching the stars and talking about
different things, mostly about the upcoming babies.
"So what are you guys going to do about the baby?" Mack asked as he

"Here, and hand me the screws, will ya, Mack?" Dwayne demanded as

As the crew tried to work on the gun, the Big Guy signal went off.
"Where, and of what importance?" Dwayne asked Garth, who was already

Outside, a robot the size of two Big Guys put together was
attacking the SS Dark Horse.
"Better get suited up, Dwayne," Erika smiled as she placed her hand
on her nine-months-pregnant belly.
