Ben groaned, why did the always have to be driving in some remote place like Arizona? He looked at the thermometer, it read 100 degrees. He glanced over the table to the most annoying person in the world, his cousin. Gwen was currently crouched over the table fanning herself with her hand. “Grandpa when are you going to fix the air conditioner, it feels like 1,000 degrees in here,” asked Ben. “For once I agree with you Ben. The Rustbucket always has something broken,” said Gwen in a complaining voice. “Aww, come on guys, it’s all apart of the experience driving through Arizona,” said Grandpa Max. “Hmph, I think I have had enough experience, for one summer. That experience mainly coming from this,” Ben held up his Omitrix. “For a second time I agree with Ben, at this point we have had so much experience with everything I kinda wish we could just go back to a normal life,” said Gwen in a rather bored voice. Ben got up and mumbled that he was going to the bathroom. Once he was inside he dialed his watch so XLR8 showed up. Ben smiled a devilish grin. He raised his hand and slammed down on the watch. With a green flash, he turned into a blue alien, with a tail whipping around. Ben quickly climbed out the window, and started running before he hit the ground. Once he touched down he starts to run as fast as he can. Ben is trying to find a gas station, or a dinner or something to pull over at. He quickly finds a station, but it is deserted. Ben sighed, he thought it would be that easy. He continues to run as fast as he can to find a station. Meanwhile at the Rustbucket, Gwen was banging on the door. “Ben what is taking so long?! I really need to go!” yelled Gwen. Ben is probably just doing this to get at me. Gwen crossed her arms and leaned back. All the while Ben was returning, after finding a repair shop a couple miles ahead. Ben not being the smartest person in the world did not think the whole plan through. When he got back to the Rustbucket he had to figure out how to get back through the window. At first he simply tried to reach the edge and pull himself up. When that did not work he tried jumping up and grabbing the opening. When he had to double back on himself to jump onto the ledge again his watch started to beep out. Ben panicked and franticly jumped up to the window. When he grabbed it, he turned back into normal Ben, but he was hanging onto the window from the outside. He quickly scrambled in and landed with a thump on the floor. Outside Gwen was at an exploding point and she heard the thump, she banged on the door. “Ben you ok?” Asked Gwen, “Yeah I am fine!” exclaimed Ben. “Good then get out!” yelled a slightly angry Gwen. Ben opened the door, and Gwen ran in, pushed him out and slammed the door. Ben hunched his arms and walked over to the table and sat down. “Hey Grandpa, at the next gas station, repair shop, or something, could we stop there and get out of the car, and maybe get the Air conditioner fixed?” Asked Ben, who had scouted out the next one already, and knew they would be there in a couple of minutes. “I do not know Ben, we need to get to the RV rest station as soon as possible,” explained Grandpa Max, who was uneasy having somepony else fix his car. “Aww, come on Grandpa! PLEASE!” Begged Ben, who really wanted to get out of the Rustbucket, and did not want having to turn into XLR8 for nothing. “All right Ben, the next place I see we will pull over,” said Grandpa Max. “Yes! Thank you grandpa!” Exclaimed Ben, who was reaching over to Gwen’s laptop to see if he could find anything that would prove useful later. Gwen chose that moment to come out the restroom. She looked over and saw Ben reaching for her laptop. “Don’t touch that you dweeb! That is my personal Laptop,” Yelled Gwen. Ben just rolled his eyes and went up front to Grandpa and sat in the passenger’s seat. At that moment he spied the abounded gas station. He knew it would not be long now to the repairs shop. Gwen went on her laptop and started IMing, and Ben propped up his legs on the dashboard. After about five minutes they reached the repair shop, and they all rushed out. Grandpa Max went to tell the repair man to tell him what to do. Ben and Gwen went into the shop to look at the bad candy. Ben quickly got bored and went out behind the shop where no one could see him. Gwen thinking he was up to no good followed him to make sure he did not do anything stupid. Ben sat down and started to fiddle with the Omitrix, trying to figure out more about it. Gwen very quickly got bored of watching this, and stepped from around the corner.
