Matoki to the rescue

Chapter 1: A message from home

It was a nice sunny day of September. The birds were singing and no grey clouds could be spotted. At some miles from there, humans were taking a break from work to go eat a bit. Here, in a deserted valley, lied a big spaceship in which some aliens were…well… eating too. Dada, Shishi and Tats were all sitting at a long rectangular table while Toto was charging his batteries. As they ate ramens for the fourth time, a noise coming from outside caught their attention.

"What's going on again?" said Shishi as he wiped his hands with a napkin.

Tats got up and went to see from a window what was causing all that noise. He opened the window just in time to see Keke jump on a trampoline. He then landed on a tree branch 5m from the ground. After, he walked steadily on the branch to reach another branch where a kite was stuck.

"Keke, are you crazy?!" said Tats not believing what he just saw.

Keke looked at Tats and then pointed the helmet he was wearing. "Safety first." He took the kite and dropped it. Under the tree was Joko. The yellow masked mato stretched his arms and ran in circles to catch the kite. When he did, he gave a thumb up to Keke.

Tats was now boiling. "I don't care if you have a helmet or not! You could have gotten hurt! And Joko, I bet this was all your idea!" The matoki darted the little genius. He then turned around to see Shishi who was coming his way. "Shishi, tell him that what he did was dangerous!"

Tats always overreacted which kinda annoyed everyone. "I just came here." said Shishi with a sigh. He look out from the window and saw the two other matos examinating their kite. Shishi looked at Tats who was still waiting for him to say something. "I am so not gonna argue with him." he taught. Last time, he missed a whole movie because Tats and him were discussing about their chores.

He was thinking of an excuse when a familiar Beep came from a corner of the room. Toto was finally a 100% charged. "You know what, I should probably clean Toto so that he won't short circuit like last time." said Shishi already heading near the robot.

Tats was about to protest, but then he realized that Shishi took one of his chores. So, he decided to let him go for this time and tried to stay calm.

Meanwhile, Dada had finished eating and was now cleaning the dishes. He then saw a strange light coming from their main station room. Leaving the dishes in the sink, he went to see what it was. On their computer, a big envelope sign was flashing. "Hmm…a message from Planet Mato...well that's strange." He rushed to the other room and called the others. "Hey guys! We got a message from home!" he screamed.

Hearing this, the other matos stopped what they were doing and ran into the room, swishing Dada at the same time. As they pushed each other to see the computer screen, Shishi sat down in front of the computer. "Ok, now let's see what's up." He clicked on the message icon and another window opened. A video started loading.

All the matos came closer to see their home planet. After all this time away from their home planet, they were all excited to see their people again. Unfortunately, things weren't as they remembered. What was before a beautiful green land where there were many villagers who lived peacefully was now a grey, desolated, abandoned ruins. Even the facility where they've grew up and trained together was now just sand and dust. The matos couldn't believe their eyes. "Is that home?" asked Toto. "It can't be!" said Tats. "What happened over there?" whispered Shishi.

Suddenly, their commander appeared on the screen. He was pale and seemed very sick. Big dark circles were under his eyes like if he hadn't slept for years. He was holding what ever was filming and got closer to it. "Soldiers, as you can see planet Mato isn't going well. The water has been contaminated by some kind of strange substance. At lease 10 matos die every day." A sudden cough made the commander stop. The matos clenched their fists. Seeing their chief like this made them feel powerless. "If things continue like this, we will go extinct in less than a month! Since you fellows are the only ones who are in good health, we need you to find a cure. It seems that this kind of problem already happened on Earth. Your new mission now is to find the cure and bring it here as quickly as possible" The commander coughs once more and the screen started to blur. "You don't have much time. We're all counting on you six." The video started getting static. "No no NO!" screamed Shishi as the computer screen became all black.

Everybody stayed silent. What they just saw left them completely speechless. Planet Mato, their home planet, where they lived most of their life, was now in trouble and they were the only ones how could help.
