You Will Do What You're Told and That's Final! by Galaxy-Afro You Will Do What You're Told and That's Final! by Galaxy-Afro
The Fat Controller drove into the sheds, and stepped out of his car. The inspector had informed him that the new engine was being difficult, and knowing that he wanted no trouble from the engine intended to keep it short and sweet. The engine was furiously steaming off in the shed. The Fat Controller found a box, and stood on top of it.

"Gordon, is it?" he asked kindly. Gordon said nothing, and blew out some steam from his pistons. "I'll take that as a yes then." he replied. Gordon said nothing, he continued scowling. The Fat Controller cleared his throat. "One of my inspectors informed me that you have a major problem with pulling goods trains, and have refused to take one over to Vicarstown. Would you mind explaining to me why that is?"

Gordon finally spoke. "Sir, my designer, Sir Nigel Gresley designed me for the sole purpose of pulling coaches. I refuse to pull that dirty goods train or ANY goods train for that matter! I wasn't designed for that, and I shall not let a fat cat in a top hat tell ME how to live my life! Leave my presence at once!"

The Fat Controller's face turned a deep shade of beet red. He was FURIOUS. "HOW DARE YOU SPEAK TO ME LIKE THAT! ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR BLOODY MIND! I'M the man in charge of this railway, and I will NOT be spoken to in such a manner! I'm your BOSS, and if you think that you can speak to me in that way, then you will learn the hard way! You will not be pulling coaches OR trucks! Instead, you will stay in that shed until I figure out what to do with you! When you live on MY railway, running on MY coal and water, and running on MY rails, you will do as you are told, regardless of what you were designed to do!"

The Fat Controller turned on his heel, and walked away to his car. He started the ignition, and drove off. "Engines today!" he muttered.

Looks like the Fat Hatt's having a bad day.

Is this supposed to be like an adult-child relationship?

Yep,  Sudrian Chronicles Gordon will be a bit immature when we first meet him. Sir Topham Hatt will be a bit more serious in this series,  the complete opposite of what the TV series is doing with him.
