Chapter 8: “Back to the Hellmouth!”
Back in the Hellmouth construction zone, Bubba was looking at the master blueprints. He was happy with his results thus far. No super-agents had tracked him down to stop him. No other super-villains had tried to take over. No tomb raiders had stumbled onto him. As far as he could tell, no super-heroic types knew about him yet. So his optimism was high that he would be completed with his new Hellmouth on schedule. With the new facility, future attempts to take over Planet Earth from the Humans would be staged. Bubba would charge each new would be conqueror a huge fee for the use of his facility. Bubba was smart enough to know, that as a government fell so too did its currency. So of course the fees would not be paid with paper cash. Nor electronic credits. But good old fashioned metals and gem stones! Semi-precious gems were acceptable too!
His new facility was tapped into a natural underground lake for its source of water. There was also a huge underground lake of oil, the Humans couldn’t reach, but he could. So he had his fossil fuel resource too. He was set up for solar power and wind power. He even had a rod set up to collect expended Magical Energies, for recycling. The radiations from the ruins were also going to be an energy source for him. He was fairly certain that he had taken every emergency contingency precaution into his plans. He was sure to make a huge profit return on his investment, so no expense was spared. But that didn’t prevent mistakes from occurring. There had been zero accidents on the job thus far. The odds said that he was long overdue for an accident too. Magical safeguards or not. Scientific safeguards or not. Sooner or later, bad events happen to even good people let alone bad people. Bubba was going to learn that he was no exception!
The End of Chapter 8!
