My Life With The Killjoys, Chapter 5

"Great job, Party Poison. Now LynZ is gone and we may never see her again. Do you even care?!" Rose Bomb yelled. (Did I mention she has a temper?)
"I do care!" he roared back at her. Somehow, Bandit stayed asleep through all of this. The atmosphere of the room was calm for the next few minutes until Party Poison broke the silence by saying, "We're going to find LynZ. C'mon Killjoys, pack your weapons and in the van. Now!"
I grabbed my purple ray gun and ninja sword. Rose Bomb got her gold ray gun and dagger. We climbed into the van and Rose Bomb, Bandit, Jet Star, and I sat in the back row. Party Poison and sat in the front with Dr. D. A Killjoy I don't remember, is driving. Fun Ghoul and Kobra Kid sat in the middle row, in front of us.
As we drove through the desert we saw the roads lined with corpses, some being children, about as young as 8 years old. I keep my eyes open for LynZ, hoping I won't find her there. Luckily, she wasn't.
Suddenly, I saw something familiar gleam in the bright sun.
"We have to stop!" I yell without much thought. The Killjoy who was driving stepped on her brakes and pulled the key out of the ignition. Party Poison turned around in his seat and said, "Whatever this is Atomic Peach Blossom, it can wait. Keep driving."
She didn't listen and I walked out of the van and Party Poison, Fun Ghoul, Kobra Kid, and Rose Bomb followed after me. I reached down into the sand and retrieved a golden heart-shaped locket. The Killjoys were standing in front of me and staring like I lost my mind.
"So..." Kobra Kid said keeping his poker face on like it was wrong not to.
"So this is LynZ's necklace. I saw her wear it once. She kept it in her pocket usually" I replied. I opened it to find two drawings-one of Bandit and one of Party Poison. I handed it to him and he started crying.
"What's going on out there?" Jet Star called from inside the van, watching after Bandit.
We went back into the van and told Jet Star and the other Killjoy about what I found. Party Poison put the locket around his neck and we drove off.
As we slowly drove through the desert, the sky got darker. I looked at my watch and it read 18:30 p.m., military time. As we kept driving, I stared out the window hoping to see LynZ wearing her orange leather jacket, black jacket, and black boots; walking on the side of the desert road. Then I see a figure walking in front of us. It wasn't LynZ; the figure was too short. When I saw it had an afro, I thought I was looking at ghost. But it was Missile Kid. We thought that Missile Kid was dead ever since we saw her kidnapped by an unidentified gang.
"Great to have you back, Missile" Jet Star said as he moved to the middle row of seats so Missile Kid could sit next to Rose Bomb and I. She looked just like she did the day she went missing. Her hair was dirty and her clothes were slightly torn and covered in a thin layer of dirt.
Suddenly the talking in the van died down. There was an uneasy feeling as we stopped. In front of us was cave made out dirt with a symbol carved into the top. It was the symbol of the of the draculoids. This was their hidden lair.
"We're here" Party Poison said.
