Chapter 3: Unleashing The Curse Of The Mansion
~*~*~*~45 minutes before Luigi's arrival~*~*~*~
Mario arrived at the mansion earlier than
expected. He did think that this place was kinda
creepy after all. But being a person who had
faced much more dangers, he believed that
nothing bad above his ability would happen
to him. He was wrong.
"Mama-mia! " remarked Mario, "Luigi won himself
one depressing residence!" He
stepped up to the mansion entrance. "Hm.....door's-a-looked.
Might as well
just....WOAH!" exclaimed Mario when he accidentally
stepped on a tiny frame that
caused the floor beneath him to open up.
After a short ride, Mario landed on a stack
of old rags. He got up and dusted himself of.
"Great! I lost
my flashlight. Now what? Ewe...I think I stepped on something gooey! "
In the dark, he shook his boots and with a
ripping scratch of a match, he returned a weak
glow of light to the room.
"By the looks of this, must be the-a-washroom
or something. " He continued walking and
down a set of stairs that was the only other
way out. It led to a lower level of the mansion.
"AHHH! WH--WHAT THE HELL?! " Mario was caught
by surprise by a collection of
bones and pieces or ribs spread along the
ground at the end of the stairs in yet another
light-lacking room. He also noted the chucks
of rocks that probably belonged to a human
began to examine along the walls for an exit, and that is when he came
across a certain door......
"What's-a-this?" He noticed the strange sign
in a forgotten language inscribed on one of
the boards of the odd framing. For all the
nails and wooden plates hammered across it
and the chains and locks wrapped around it,
the door was practically an unbreakable
A familiar scent filled his nose. " What's
that smell? Is that....gasoline?" Strangely
enough, the door was soaked with a flammable
liquid. "Probably, someone was trying to
open up this door. I wonder what-a-is in there?
Not the exit" He turned to look for
another way out, without realizing that his
fire match had reached its end.
" Ouch! Hot! Hot!
Hot!" yelped Mario waving his finger. Unfortunately, the small
sparks were enough to set his very location
Luckily, he jumped just seconds before the
explosion. Once the clouds cleared, Mario
carefully lighted another match. Though it
was rather unnecessarily, for a ghostly gleam
within the depths past the trashed door, gave
a new light.
Indefinite pairs of tiny red eyes laid their
vision on him. Their stare was more than
enough to freeze the plumber. Before Mario
even flinched, the numbers of eyes rose and
grew larger, indicating their advancing motion.
The swarm of Boos tackled Mario to the
ground. He wildly struggled, but to no avail.
His body was subdued as the gassy crowd
rejoiced in a union of laughter."
"Get you're filthy hands of
me!!" Mario gave another attempt to break free, but they just continued their joy over his
pathetic effort with their abnormal dance of their light. The group suddenly silenced
and in front of Mario, a line of Boos stepped to the sides, revealing another Boo. Apparently,
he wore a ruby red crown on his head and looked very different from the others
by his cold blue eyes that caught Mario's attention and of a fade memory.
One of the Boos came up to him.
"My king, it seems that we have.... a special visitor." He moved aside, allowing the
leader to see the plumber in person.
"Well, well, if it isn't the
great Italiano, Mario! I never thought I'd ever see you again. Remember me? It's been a long
time since we last meet in battle." His pale face curved into a sly smirk. "I have thirst
for revenge ever since then."
"Who the hell are you!? I don't
remember you! To me, you all look the same, like big ugly volleyballs!"
"Shut up your trap, you swine!
How dare you speak your ill tongue to King Boo!" The crowd's anger grew and started
a pool of mixed conversation. The leader raised his arm and in an instant they became
"Of course you don't recall
me. In your whole entire life, you didn't even lay knowledge of whom you trampled on, or
more less your enemies."
"Why should I, to the likes
of you?!" Bellowed Mario with another violent struggle. "You all are nothing, but underlings
"DEAD WRONG!!" Boomed King Boo.
"Maybe we are, maybe we're not. It doesn't matter to me. All that I care for is enduring this perfect opportunity
of sweet vengeance on you, and your chicken-headed
"You leave Luigi out of this!"
"And if I don't? Who will stop
me? You? " sneered the leader along with the amusement of the other Boos. Mario was
powerless under the numbers of enemies.
"What... are you going to do
The ghost purposely remained
wordless and Mario automatically read his devastating
"See for yourself. Boolicious? When was the last
time we had a nice meal?"
*!!!!! No.... the ribs---and
bones----on the ground!!!!!* shouted Mario's brain.
"Ah yes, we had one just before
a friend of that unfortunate man had sealed us away. I
have to thank you though, for
freeing us form this cursed room."
All the Boos now revealed their
sharp teeth letting saliva drip of their tongue. They
became starving piranhas, waiting
to be fed. King Boo chuckled at this delightful sight.
"I believe my friends can no
longer suppress their hungry anymore." At every
Boo spoke, the supernatural
became more eager and untamable.
"Take him away. I may have mercy
on you, but revenge doesn't know the meaning of
Mario was now literally fighting for his life, but he
had no chance against the tens
of Boos who greedily seized him. Mario's fading yells
across the basement of the haunted
mansion drastically begged for a soul to hear.
are you.........what happened to you........."
