I tried to lean back in the chair but it was bolted to the floor. As was I. It’s difficult to look cool in those circumstances. I did my best. After all, I'm Johnny Wishbone and, therefore, unique. And handsome.
I told this to the guys that had bolted me to the floor. They looked unimpressed.
"Don’t be funny," one said, "Give us the Quantum Singularity Device. Now."
He emphasised his point by charging an R3A Laser Drill. I couldn't help but be impressed by his choice of power tool.
"Already did," I said, as they fell through the floor.

The R3A VoigtLunder? Classic! Awesome drabble- very comfortable in it's stylishness- reminds me of Chandler

Thanks muchly, Jim. I do love that hard-boiled, pared-down Chandler style. Hopefully I keep it on the right side of pastiche.
