Al-right! No mentioning Grimalkin, that much was completely clear. Yep. "Yeah, this is way too weird. I've fought some weirdoes, but never been sucked into a book before." Alright, with the initial shock wearing off, and knowing she had super hero back up? Robin was a little bit excited about all this, but she was trying hard not to show it. Walking back to the garage with the armors and the bike, Robin got up on the bike, then touched the amulet, opening a portal back to where they left from. "Need a ride?" Could Gretchen fly? Maybe? Robin couldn't remember, so better to ask, right?

 

Once Gretchen had either gotten on or declined, Robin drove through the portal, then started heading down the Silver Road that the small people had pointed out. None of the small people came out to wave the pair off, as Justice set out down the road as it stretched between the yellow corn. Despite herself, she couldn't suppress a small grin as she began humming to the tune of "We're off to see the wizard..."

"Yeah, sure," Gretchen said as she climbed on back of the bike and put her arms around Justice's waist, careful not to be inappropriate. "Save my strength for when we have to fight Kaiju Tin Woodman. Let's go."

 

Some people found the mystical heroine's monotone delivery irritating, but at times like this, when all the weirdness in the world hit you in the face, there was something comforting about having a partner who was so clearly over it all. "This is probably the part where we should start playing Dark Side of the Moon," she deadpanned.

For a long while, the ride was uneventful. Endless yellow fields, endless silver road, the Ruby Castle ever so slowly growing greater in the distance. So slowly, barely even visibly getting closer. At least Justice's Law Rider was making the journey faster. At least until something else came into view. Up ahead, blocking the path, was a pair of rather large, dark green gorillas. They stood side by side, shoulder touching shoulder. If one were to look closely, they could see small feathered wings at their shoulder blades, obviously way too small to be able to carry the beasts.

 

As they saw Shrike and Justice approaching, the first raised a hand and pointed. The other gave a grunt in response, but neither seemed inclined to move.

It was kind of weird riding like this, with someone holding on to her. Sure, Gretchen was gentle enough, and didn't hold around her in any weird way, but, she was holding on, and Robin was really more used to just riding on her own. She grinned behind her helmet when Gretchen mentioned playing Dark Side of the Moon. "Sorry, no sound system yet! But, I'm working on it!" That, and a ton of other upgrades and extra things for both the bike, the AnneX and the armors... really, whew, so many things to do, it was a miracle she ever got any hero work done.

 

The ride was rather boring, to tell the truth. The guy who had written this knockoff story clearly didn't understand that you actually had to put something in the stories! At least not until they reached the big, green, small-winged gorillas. With practiced ease, Robin brought the Law Rider to a halt some 30 feet away from the gorillas, putting a foot on the road. "Wow. Did this writer have any original ideas? Those things even got wings." Stepping down from the bike, she stretched her legs a bit. It didn't seem like the gorillas were about to make a move, so... "What do you say? Talk or just start fighting?" Gretched had more experience than her, right? She'd probably know what to do.
