Chapter 1: Robot down!

Chrio pov

The monkey team and I were about to head home. The dark one worm was destroyed and the cosmos were safe again. We could finally go back to Shugazoom. But, as Otto was turning us around to go home the robot's engines stalled and we were sent hurtling to the planet below. "OTTO, WHAT GOING ON?" I yelled desperately holding on to my seat. "I DON'T KNOW! THE ENGINES JUST WENT OUT!" Gibson glared at Otto "WE GATHERED! WHAT CAN WE DO TO STOP OUR DECENT?" he yelled. Otto looked at his screen and looked at us in despair "THERE NOTHING WE CAN DO!" he cried "EXCEPT," at that moment my screen lit up and started going nuts "BRACE FOR IMPACT!" I yelled. Otto looked thoughtful "I was gonna say scream and yell, but, that works, too."

Meanwhile on Earth.

I was laying in bed trying to get to sleep when Ferb started shaking me awake. "What is it Ferb?" I asked sitting up and walking over to where he was. He pointed out the window and I saw a comet. "COOL, hey, Ferb, could you go get our telescopes?" Ferb left and came back with our telescopes. I looked through mine and gasped and so did Ferb telling me he saw it, too. I pulled away rubbed my eyes to make sure I wasn't hallucinating and looked again. Yes, it was still there. It wasn't a comet at all. It was a robot! I pulled away and looked at Ferb. He pulled out of his telescope and stared at me. Quickly, we both looked through them again and saw that the robot was coming in for a crash landing. Sure enough, it went down in the abandon junkyard. "Come on, Ferb! There may have been someone in that thing!" I exclaimed as quietly as I could. It was the middle of the night after all and if Candace would go nuts if we woke her up this early. I ran out of our room while putting on my jacket. I was about to open the door when someone spoke from behind me.

"Where are you two going at this hour?" I turned to see a clearly annoyed Perry. "Oh, there, you are Perry. We're going to look at a giant robot that just crashed in the abandon junkyard. Want to came?" Perry half smiled "Do I have choice?" I thought for a moment "No, no you don't." I said bursting out the door followed closely by Ferb and Perry. "Didn't think so." said Perry as he shut the door.

I sat up and groaned. My head felt like it had been shoved into a trash compacter. "Everyone okay?" I asked. Slowly the hyper force replied. "I will survive." said Nova "Yes, the same here." said Gibson "I'm good." called Otto "I will repair." said Antauri "We're fine, kid, what about you?" I sighed relieved the team was alright "I think I'm okay. My head hurts like crazy though." I said trying to stand. I regretted it at once. A sharp pain shot up from my leg and I fell back into my seat with a yelp of pain. "CHRIO!" cried Antauri running over to my side. "My leg." I said through gritted teeth. Gibson came over and examined my leg. He shook his head sadly "I'm afraid it's broken." I bowed my head "I was afraid of that." I said.

I picked up the speed as we got closer to the junkyard. "PHINEAS, SLOW DOWN!" called Perry. He and Ferb were trying desperately to catch up with me. I didn't slow my pace until I was at the gate. Where I decide to let them catch their breath. They leaned over putting there hands on their knees and panting. "Ready?" I asked as they straitened up. They nodded and we walked in. The robot was bigger then we originally thought. My eyes were wide. This thing was big enough to accommodate at least twelve people. Ferb pointed to an opening in the foot of the robot. "Nice work ,Ferb." I said "Give me a boost." Ferb lifted me up to the opening and I reached down and pulled up Perry and Perry help me up up Ferb. We dusted ourselves off and looked around. "Whoa, Ferb, this is way more advanced then anything we have ever built!" I exclaimed excited "Hm," I turned Ferb was looking at one of the engines "I can't see why it crashed. It looks to me like the engines are undamaged." I shrugged "Maybe their was a power failure."

I said walking forward. I spotted six different colored tubes. I walked up to the orange one and looked it over "Hey, guys, check this out." Ferb and Perry came over and looked at them "What are they?" asked Ferb. "I don't know. Their cool though aren't the.., WHOA!" a rush of air yanked me up into the tube. "PHINEAS!" cried Ferb and Perry. I shot up the tube and tumbled out into what looked like a control center. I started to stand when Ferb and Perry came out of the tube and land on me. "Oof!" was all I could say as they winded me. Suddenly, I heard Perry chatter and looked up at him. He was in pet mode? Why? I follow his gazed and saw a teenage boy and some cybernetic monkeys staring at us.

Chrio pov

The team was about to take me to med-bay to put a cast on my leg when there was a cry of shock and a loud thump from the direction of the travel tubes. A boy, no older then eleven, with red hair was laying on the ground. He was about to stand when another boy, this one with green hair, and a strange creature landed on top of him as they fell out of my tube. The creature was wearing a hat and, upon see us, quickly took it off, crossed his eyes, and made a funny chattering noise. The boy at the bottom of the pile looked at the creature puzzled then turned and saw us. There was an uneasy silence, then the red head elbowed the other boy. It must have been hard because the other boy yelp "OW, PHINEAS, WHAT WAS THAT FOR!" he cried. Phineas? Was that the red head's name? Phineas pointed at us and the green hair boy noticed us for the first time. "Oh, this is awkward." he said.

Phineas rolled his eyes "Duly noted, Ferb. Now, CAN YOU PLEASE GET OFF ME!" yelled Phineas struggling under Ferb weight. "OH, sorry!" he said scrambling off of Phineas. Phineas sat up "You know, I just realized something." Ferb tilted his head "What?" Phineas pointed at us "If the had landed on our house Candace would be in charge." I could take much more of this "Uh, excuse me, but who are you?" asked Antauri.

Phineas pov

I almost jumped out of my skin when the silver monkey spoke. "Uh, um, I'm Phineas and this is my brother, Ferb." Perry chattered "Oh, and this is our pet platypus, Perry." they looked puzzled "How did you get on-board without setting off the alarm?" asked the blue monkey. "There was an opening in the foot." I said pointing back. They seemed even more puzzled by this, then I noticed the boy was standing on one leg. "Did you hurt your leg?" I asked concerned. The boy looked down and seemed to remember that he was hurt. "Oh, that's right." he said sadly. "Well, I guess we leave. Sorry for barging in." I said. Then, Ferb spoke up "Before we go. Why did you crash your robot?"

Chrio pov

I blinked "What do you mean? Our engines were damaged and we crashed." Ferb shook his head "When we came in we looked at the engines. They were fine. Fully operational." I was shocked. How did he know that? Before I could ask he took his brother's hand "Come on, Phinny. We need to get home before Candace wakes up." Phineas smiled "Race you home. On your mark, get set, go!" he said quickly and before poor Ferb could comprehend what he said Phineas was in the tube and had disappeared. "PHINEAS FLYNN, YOU GET BACK HERE! THAT WAS NOT A FAIR START!" yelled Ferb running into the tube Phineas disappeared in. "HEY, WAIT FOR ME!" cried a voice coming from the floor. We looked down and stared as Perry trotted over to the tube chasing after his boys. I looked at the shocked team "So, who wants to see who wins?" asked Otto typing on the computer.

The picture played on our screen. Phineas was in the lead with Ferb and Perry trying to keep up. Ferb stopped for a moment to pick up Perry and then ran again. It was looking like Phineas was going to win until suddenly he stopped and stared a something off screen Ferb had stopped ,too. Then, after a moment of staring, Phineas took a few steps back then turned and ran back in their direction. When he passed Ferb he grabbed his brother's hand and dragged him after him. "What are they running from?" I asked Otto "Can you turn on the sound?" Otto obeyed and the moment the sound was on we heard the boys clearly "WHAT ARE THOSE?" cried Ferb "I don't know. RUN!" ordered Phineas. "PERRY, TELL ME YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO HELPUS HERE!" yelled Phineas looking back "I'm looking, I'm looking!" both boys looked back again and then pick up the speed "HURRY!" they yell in unison. "Got it!" cried Perry triumphantly. Then there were flashes of red. "A beam of some kind." said Gibson. "Uh, guys? Shouldn't we go help them?" asked Nova. We looked at each other "Hyper force, GO!" I cried and we jetted out.
