At the bottom of the cave, Ed noticed he could hear a strange trumpeting noise coming from
above. He struggled to climb back up through the hole to see what was happening.
Ron was parading around the room blasting everything with his mystical new powers of Ronness.
Ed was smart enough to go back into his hole and hide for a while. The blasting continued with renewed
vigor every second. Trumpets blared.
"This is the greatest moment of my life," screamed Ron from above, "Ha ha ha!"
All that screaming gave Ed chills and he dug deeper into the rocks, to hide from the menace that
was tramping around. Down a bit further he came upon a soft spot, he stepped down on it to see if it was
safe to stand on, perhaps it was a meal.
"Stop stepping on me," said Bill.
"Sorry," said Ed.
"No problem," said Bill, "I just found the Galaxy Crystal. It was in the box of rocks that Ron
turned me into."
A few more screams of tyrannical pleasure came from above. Then Bill and Ed came out of the
box again, and glared at Ron.
"Stop it," said Bill.
Ron giggled and pointed his mystical powers at Bill and blasted him again.
Fortunately for Bill, he was holding the Galaxy Crystal, it deflected the deadly rays back and
shrived Ron into a small rodent.
"He's a small rodent," said Ed.
"We saved the Galaxy," said Bill.
"I suppose we'll have to get a cage for him," suggested Ed.
"I suppose we will," said Bill.
After returning to their personal dwelling on the 4th moon of Vertex, they got a rather roomy cage
for Ron to live in. He was happy in there.
The Galaxy Crystal was returned to the High Council and it was reinstated in the frap-o-matic.
Ron and Ed were given a years supply of frap burgers at Crazy Doug's as a reward. Ron was given a ten
pound bag of "Rodents-Be-Happy" tablets.
"Well," said Bill to Ed, "We saved the Galaxy again."
"Yep," said Ed, "We sure did." He dropped another tablet into Ron's cage. Ron ate it and was
satisfied in a very rodenty way.
