day fifty-seven and Boof!

Somehow, Benny, Ron and the Spy all got a part of their bodies in the autogyro’s single-seat cockpit and held on to the outside with other parts. Benny opened the throttle and the autogyro shot out of the slit in the mountain-side and out into the bright morning sky.
They looked back at the mountain a few seconds later when they heard a muffled Boof! as the exploding soup exploded, and were surprised to see the octopus escaping in a small flying capsule from a spot higher up the mountain.
“S.M.I.R.K. got away!” shouted Ron above the sound of the engine.
Phew! I’m glad about that - I didn’t think he would actually make the exploding soup!” shouted Benny.
“I didn’t fail, by the way! I’m a double-agent working for the Emperor,” shrieked the Spy.
“What...!” Benny and Ron started to shout, but were interrupted by an awful noise from the engine, which was over-heating with the strain of the extra weight. The autogyro started spinning around like a terrible fairground ride and spiralled downwards. 
“Aaaarrggghhhhh!” they all shouted together.
