Gru turned and looked over his should in time to see Edith holding Dr. Nefarios' latest weapon design. It was small, but it had enough power to blast a hole through the wall. His heart dropped as her fingers pressed down on the trigger.
"No, no, no, no! Don' touch..."
He didn't get a chance to finish before a loud explosion filled the room, knocking both him and Edith off their feet. He wasn't sure how, but he had managed to catch the blond girl before she made contact with the opposite wall, unfortunately for him he wasn't as lucky. His back hit the wall, and it snapped his head back causing it to snap back.
Coughing, Edith slightly opened her eyes. The lab was a mess, the counter was knocked into the wall, all kinds of weapons were scattered on the floor. Some of the lights had fizzled out and now there was a huge gapping hole in the wall. Minions that had been in the room were also kno

The story takes place no less than a week after a Gru steals the moon. During this short period, he faced another roller coaster of unexpected anxieties!
Having woke up one morning to a Server standing at his door with an assessment paper from the Mayor himself! Gru was horrified to learn that he was getting sued by the city, for 2.5 million in damages for crashing his rocket in the street! The notice stated that if he didn't pay the fine within a month, he'd go to prison! And the timing from this couldn't have been more horrible. For he, Nephario, and the minions were flat broke, having sunk every dime into the rocket, which they were now threatening to scrap piece by piece! And what made matters worse was. . .that if Gru went to prison this time, he would lose the girls permanently. (Who he made sure didn't have a clue to what was really going on.)

Looking toward him, the NASA agent replied, "Mr. Gru. . ." Motioning the girls to stay, he stood up and walked to the desk. "You requested a cash? Correct?"

"Well, here is a signed statement saying you received your payoff, minus the check cut out for the damages to the city." He replied, as the Mayor nodded with approval.

After everyone had gone off to bed, Gru found that he couldn't sleep. So not wanting to disturb Dr. Nephario, he went into the living room of the hotel and began watching TV. He was in the middle of flipping channels, when he heard a little whimper from across the room. Looking toward the sofa bed he began focusing on Dave and Kevin who were both sound asleep.

Finally this is out! There are many reasons why this took so long, which I'll explain afterwards. I swore to myself that I would never make a chapter as long as chapter 2. This wasn't quite as long, but it was getting very close. I even made an outline for this! An outline! I've never done that for a story, I barely do it for essays. I usually just write, but this chapter would have been all over the place had I done that.

By the time they pulled up into the parking lot, he was seething with resentment. Glaring ahead, Gru slowly turned watching as the girls jumped up and ran outside, then followed by his mother.

As a child Gru had had nightmares. There were reasons for this of course. The obvious fact that he was a child being one of them, but this fact was only one of the few, and the lesser, of the many problems. His homelife being for example; his unsupportive mother who believed that he, her own son, was never enough. His father's harsh demeanor and how he had left early without so much as an explanation of why. School bullies who teased him for his short figure and harsh accent.
All of these things, of course, later on led to his successful career as the worlds number one villain. His mothers downcast eye pushed him forward. His father leaving had helped him block off any and all painful things thrown at him. And school bullies that he had bumped into later in life regretted anything and everything that they had said to him, as he towered over them with a six foot four and an accent that made people cower.
Nightmares had stopped early for him. He was on his way to being a super
