24. Happy Endings

An air compressor hooked to the bed kept Sebiscuits alive during the trip to the MBH. When they arrived, Sebiscuits was whisked onto a hospital bed in the medical station. They all examined him at once. Much work was necessary to save his life after the mou kei strike and amputations Baby Intelligence had performed.

Now with a clearer understanding of Baby Intelligence's plans, all five members spent much time connecting Sebiscuits’ severed nerve endings to the new robotic parts they had kept in case they were necessary. The process included three hours to supply artificial implants to his internal organs, one of which were dedicated to implementing the required linkages.

Budgetary limitations and lack of effective equipment also acted as a factor to the attempts at repair. As a result of the shortcuts they were forced to implement during the surgery, Sebiscuits had no mask, just a mouthpiece. His scarred face would show until it healed. In addition, the dead, blackened flesh on Sebiscuits’ scalp that was exposed to the heat of the volcano was surgically removed, although the scarring itself penetrated to his bones.

It took several hours, but the construction was finally finished. What looked like a black, metallic figure lay on the bed. And then the bed tilted, moving the figure to an upright position.

"Sebiscuits," said Baby Intelligence. "You may rise."

Sebiscuits' head turned, though his battered chin seemed to feel a jolt from the rotating apparatus that was added. "Why...did you save me?"

Baby Intelligence took a deep breath, and explained what he had explained to the other members in the car. Everyone else listened behind them. "Because we're not like the NoHeads. Villains only care about people they could use. We've always loved you for what you are, even though I don't approve of what you've done. NoHead only wanted you to join him because you were powerful. See how he betrayed you? When did we ever turn our back on you?" He paused. "Well, if you want to go back and become your own NoHead leader, then so be it, but we would be very glad if you considered rejoining the group."

Sebiscuits eyed him closely. "I'm with you, bro. Until the end."

A tear rolled down Baby Intelligence's chubby cheek. The NoHeads are gone now. And he's back. Sebiscuits is back.

The day after, the S.M.S.B. and townspeople celebrated their victory with a parade in town, complete with overflights by police skyfighters. The NoHeads were extinct, and Sebiscuits had returned. Everyone danced together, and almost everyone in town came to join. Things hadn't been so peaceful since the fall of Mr. Stupid NoHead.

After hugs were exchanged amid the S.M.S.B. members, Baby Intelligence stepped to the front stage, followed closely by Sebiscuits. Several people were either worried or confused upon seeing Sebiscuits at the party, but Baby Intelligence called them off.

Baby Intelligence craned the microphone and spoke. "The real secret to our success has always been teamwork. And there's one S.M.S.B. member who hasn't been credited. Violence can play a large role in a villain's demise, but no amount of swordplay or shooting or similar attempts at murder can truly win over a villain. They are powerful, but they can only destroy." He pointed at Sebiscuits, who stood silently on his new robotic legs. "Sebiscuits has proved that tonight, and is now on our side once again. For without him, the NoHeads would still be at large. He has revoked them, and once saved me from being overpowered. And while relationships between us were once rough, we will always be family."

Everyone cheered wildly, and Sebiscuits hugged Baby Intelligence. "I couldn't have done it without you, Sebiscuits," said Baby Intelligence. He turned back to the microphone. "And I'd like to give a big shoutout to the other members of the S.M.S.B. Without them, this could not have been accomplished. So let's hear it for Lindsay, Telekinibabe, Baby Strength, and Force Baby!"

Everyone cheered again. Lindsay waved to the audience, and Force Baby grinned.

"And now," Baby Intelligence continued, "I have a surprise for everyone!"

Everyone looked on with curiosity. And then lights circled around the stage and shined color on the sidewalk. Baby Intelligence unraveled a tarp, revealing a karaoke set! Everyone went wild. "And now, come up and enter your name to sing!"

The celebration went on long into the night.
