// Mike’s “Revenge”//
One day on Planet Thorax, the twin suns are shining, the birds are chirping, when… Beep! Beep! Beep!
Gork’s alarm goes off. “Yes! Finally!” exclaims Gork. Today’s the day of my first intergalactic math battle! thought Gork.
Gork bounds out of bed, and sets a universal record for fastest teeth-brushing. As he is putting gel in his hair, he steps on his toothpaste and it propels straight out the window!
Gork hears an angry bellow and slowly peeks over the windowsill. He sees Mike, his tall, buff, neighbor who is the best at math at Shmaka Middle School with his hair full of mint green toothpaste.
His face is as red as a beet as he yells “You gonna be dead meat! Just wait until the math battle!”
A few hours later, Gork and his team arrive at the site of the fifty-first annual intergalactic math battle. They saw many teams, Mike’s team, and even those “humans” from that secluded planet “Earth”.
After the heightened battle, the announcers proclaimed that Gork and Mike were to be locked in a tiebreaker to decide who wins the gold. Mike zooms through his questions like a race car, but Gork struggles and completes his questions at the last second. Ding! The bell rang signaling the end of the tiebreaker. Someone came to collect their papers, and as soon as the scores were tallied, the announcers declared Gork the winner by two points!.
Mike wasn’t going down without a fight, so after much congratulating Mike caught Gork near the exit. “A’ight, now fight me man,” said Mike, “I ain’t happy ya beat my team, man. We shoulda beat ya real good… real good…,” and Mike charges towards Gork! Suddenly, a scream pierced the air, “No! My ice cream!” The gooey, strawberry ice cream dropped in between Mike and Gork, Gork nonchalantly stepped aside as Mike slips past Gork and out the open window!
Mike was hospitalized for five months and knew to never mess with Gork again.
