“I’m not driving that.”

“It’s perfectly driveable. Get in.”

“I’m not going to even attempt—”

“They’re coming. Get in the damned car.”

Thud. Thud.

“It’s a stick?”

“Don’t shout.”

“I can’t drive a stick.”

“Christ. Move over. Take this.”

“Gun? I can’t shoot your gun.”

“If I’m driving, you have to.”

“Shit.” Pop. Pop. Pop. “Go go go!”



“Do we have brakes?”



“Get down. Shoot back!”

“Get down or shoot back? I can’t do both.”

“Shoot back.”

Bang. “Shit.” Bang. “Shit.”

“What are you doing?”


“It’s a question?”

“This superhero business is not easy.”

  1. Sock! Pow! Zap!

  2. Great comedy action scene 🙂

  3. Dear Laurie,

    Hm. Your heroes don’t sound too super. 😉 You could’ve titled this story “Shitty, shitty, bang, bang.” Sorry about that…sometimes those things just slip out.

    Where’s his magic cape that will protect him from the bullets! Great story.

  5. Our super-heroes at full pace, a comedy duo that save the day by sheer luck and chance no doubt.

  6. That is a fun and humorous read. Well done.

  7. I think these characters need magic capes to protect themselves from themselves. More like to either shoot themselves in the foot, or to shoot each other dead. As I’ve said in response to quite a few of these stories tonight, I’m glad I live on the other side of the ocean and well away from these two!
    Best wishes,

  8. Sounds like they could sign up for the show Peacemaker! Not the most adept at superheroes, that one…

  9. You had me on the edge of my seat! Nice one.

    Your story and Rochelle’s comment had me laughing! Always love how your humor shines through your writings. I kept waiting for the “Kapow!”

    • Thank you so much!! ❤

        By the way congratulations on publishing your books and look at you getting awards for your books! I always knew you were going to get your books published 🙂

      • Thank you soooooooo much my lovely! I hope you’re well?

  11. Every superhero has to start somewhere. This is so funny. Love the title too.

  12. They will get the hang of it after awhile. Hope they survive in the process. Fun story, Laurie.

  13. This is so funny, I’m still laughing. Maybe their choice of career is a tiny bit off.

  14. What a pair of nitwits – and that is probably disrespectful to nits! Great fun.
