Dawn breaks in Chex City as Johnny is woken up by his mother. He stretches and before leaving his room he stares at a poster of his rolemodel Chexter, admiring the strength and courage radiating from his eyes. "Good morning Mom!" Johnny says as he sits down at the breakfast table. The sun sparkles off of the golden brown hair of Johnny's mother as she prepares a breakfast of sausage, eggs, and a bowl of rice Chex. "Good morning honey." she says as she puts his breakfast in front of him. "Are you ready for school today?". "Yeah!" Johnny exclaims, sending a bit of egg from his fork flying. "Today someone from Chex Squadron is gonna talk to the class!" "I hope he lets me try his Zorcher..." Johnny says in a daydream implying tone. "Well your not gonna see him if you don't leave soon" Johnny's mother says pointing at the clock indicating 8:05 A.M. "Oh man! I'm gonna be late!" Johnny runs out of the backdoor putting on his backpack mid-run. "Bye Mom!"
The house is all quiet, save for the small sizzling sound of the sausage pan cooling in the sink and the quiet news report going on in the small TV on the kitchen counter. She barely catches the word "flemoid" on the TV, but she doesn't think much of it. "I've heard 'flemoid' enough to last me a lifetime" she thinks as she gathers her stuff and steps out the door for a day of errand running.
Sitting in his desk, Johnny sits eagerly waiting for class to begin. Johnny doesn't remember being this excited in a long time, not since his dad took him to look around Bazoik 5 or so years ago. Johnny starts to feel sad as he remembers his dad. He was a miner on Bazoik when the Flemoids came. He didn't make it out. Any sadness Johhny starts to feel is instantly swept away in a sea of excitement when he sees a man walk in, carrying a suit of Chex armor that seems almost too big for him to hold. Johnny's eyes widen to the size of plates when he sees the Zorcher protruding from the man's pocket. "Hello kids," he says waving to the class, "I am Barthelochex, a member of the Chex Squadron". He then gives a explanation about what the Chex Squadron was founded for and, after 15 minutes, he asks "Any questions?". Johnny raises his hand faster then a bullet. But just as his hand got as high as it could go, a loud, low crash is heard not too far off from the school. Then, the lights went out and the kids started screaming. Johnny was nervous, but not too worried, because "A man from Chex Squadron is here!" he thought, "Nothing bad can happen if he's here to save the day!".
30 minutes pass and the lights still haven't turned back on. The kids are getting loud and anxious. "Everyone quiet down!" said the teacher who, until now, just stood in the background letting Barthelochex take all of the attention. Dead silence prevails for only a moment when a blood-chilling scream is heard just outside the window of the classroom. Barthelochex slowly peeks out of the blinds of the window. A look of absolute shock on his face reveals his deep fear and, like a shockwave of surprise that comes from popping a balloon, a green arm like thing breaks through the window, attaching itself to Barthelochex's face. He screams as he is violently pulled through the window to the outside. Standing outside the window, is a ever growing number of Flemoids. For the first and last time of his life, Johnny is truely scared.
Chexter lands in the spaceport of Chex City at around 8:00 PM. He first notices that no one is at the port. He finds that odd, but continues on to the rest of the city. Emerging from the port, he sees the streets filled with green piles of slime. He then notices the body parts protruding from the slime. Chexter stands there in shock until he hears a whisper of a moan from one of the piles of slime. He runs to the pile. A woman with golden brown hair is in the center of a slime pile, her face turning a deep purple from suffocating slowly. She whispers in a strained voice to Chexter. "They...they came so quickly....... where is my son?.......where is my Johnny........?" She then closes her eyes, and never opens them again.
