Previously: Digger was telling the story of Frog Boy, the most annoying villain he ever fought. And now…
â€œYou used your Drillers in the middle of a flea market?â€ Twain asked disbelievingly.
â€œI didnâ€™t say I used them. I said I fired them up,â€ Digger said. â€œI was mad and I was new.â€
â€œYouâ€™re saying you wouldnâ€™t use them now?â€ Twain asked. â€œBecause I thought I heard about you getting into a fight and blowing up a mall last year.â€
â€œIt was just the food court,â€ Digger said. â€œAnd yeah, I did that, but not because I was too frustrated to think of anything else.â€
â€œDidnâ€™t matter, anyway, because as soon as the Drillers powered up, he stepped in and deflected my arm up. The flea market was in this huge metal building. The blast made a lot of noise, but the force dissipated quickly enough that the roof barely rattled. Broke a lot of glass around us, though.
â€œI tried to hit him with my other hand, but he deflected that, too. Then he hit me about eight times in a second and kicked me hard in the chest. Knocked me back into a table full of wire jewelry. And then out of nowhere, he calls me a douchebag.â€
â€œThatâ€™s not funny,â€ Digger said. â€œIâ€™d never even met this guy. Whyâ€™d he have to go and make it personal?â€
â€œYou have to know you,â€ Twain said.
â€œI know me,â€ Digger said. â€œIâ€™m not that bad.â€
â€œKeep telling yourself that. So what happened then?â€
â€œWell, I glanced toward the door, but the guy I was tailing was long gone. So I turned back to Frog Boy, but he was gone, too. I heard running footsteps and a shout, so I ran that way. And down the aisles I see this guy on the ground, and thereâ€™s someone standing over him.â€
â€œFrog Boy,â€ Twain said.
â€œNo, it was some guy on a skateboard. Heâ€™s all splattered with mud or something, with his hair hanging down in his face. He looks at me all panicked for a second, then he grabs something off the ground and skates away. And the guy gets up and says, â€˜He took my necklace!â€™â€
â€œWait, what happened to Frog Boy?â€ Twain asked.
â€œI asked the guy that, and he tells me Frog Boy just disappeared. Like he could teleport or something. Kinda superfluous when you can jump like a frog, but I guess we donâ€™t pick the powers. The powers pick us,â€ Digger said.
â€œAnd thatâ€™s the most annoying guy you ever fought?â€ Twain asked skeptically. â€œIâ€™m not seeing it. I was way more annoying than that. Thereâ€™s something youâ€™re not telling me.â€
â€œNot really,â€ Digger said. â€œYou just had to be there. The way I couldnâ€™t lay a glove on him, no matter what I tried, and the way he called me a douchebag, when I hadnâ€™t done a thing to him. Plus thereâ€™s the whole thing with the guy I was tailing.â€
â€œYeah, I guess he ruined that for you,â€ Twain said.
â€œNo, thatâ€™s just it,â€ Digger said. â€œHe didnâ€™t.â€
