The two Xyls were too strong for Gary. Hell, even one was too strong for him, and he was lying on the floor, with them taking turns at kicking him in the ribs. That he was still conscious was amazing in itself – but he had the nagging feeling in what is so laughingly called 'the ribs', that they were toying with him.

"You want to die now so you can come back and Try Again Later?" They taunted. He winced as one of them landed another hard kick in his right side. The other stomped on his abdomen, winding him badly. He twisted and rolled. Beck was no fool, he could see where this was going. He lay there, moaning, trying to get his wind back. His eyes were streaming. They were enjoying themselves at his expense.

"Time to tie up some loose ends." He said to the unconscious figure, "Sorry, about that, Herr Doktor Gleichstein."

"Is that the -" Gary began, as Scrooby leaned over it and began to fiddle. He nodded.

"Yup." He replied, wrist-deep in wires and things. There was a faint click as he presumably disconnected something.

"It looks like a vacuum cleaner, sort of. But with more lights on it." The alternator sticking out on the side puzzled him. He gave it a spin, and it made a faint whirring sound. A couple of lights hanging from wires across the table flickered briefly.
