waited for the world to slowly come to an end, tightly holding his brother
in his arms totally worn out and injured. He and the professor harshly slammed
themselves against the wall for what must've been at least 20 times.
And yet, nothing moved or cracked. He watched E.Gadd give another
desperate smash against the room as the sword edged walls rumbled inward
in victory. E.Gadd gritted his teeth in pain.
"...*Sigh*..We practically tried everything, sonny. The PG3K won't do
"And freezing won't do much either..."
"So..this is the end eh?" he chuckled in irony.
racket just wouldn't leave their ears. It was just seconds now before grim
will claim three pitiful souls. He glanced at Mario one more time, who appeared
like he was asleep, only that his chest wasn't moving up and down at its
regularity. In fact, his whole body didn't even stir or moved at all, just
a small faint heart beating silently.
(And this is how it all will end? Just like this?)
Luigi felt anger rise in him. (JUST LIKE THIS!!?) His mind boomed in denial.
The swords were shifting in...closer....and closer.....until----
Something harsh and abruptly bore itself into him. Luigi was overwhelmed
with tremendous pain piercing through his flesh. Blood shot out of his veins
and body. He
heard someone' small scream escape. E.Gadd's and Mario's blood flew
past his vision. He knew the professor was no more. And whether Mario was
already dead or not, it wouldn't have mattered. He made no sound
what-so-forever like a doll and Luigi was
going to join him. He gradually shut his eyes with that last red flowing
down his vein, accepting the darkness and leaving this haunted residence.
His legs, his arms, chest, head, and every organ
in him seemed to have split into pieces he had no nerves attached to them
any more. He felt himself falling for a long time,----but where was he headed?
"Probably hell....." Luigi dared to open up, finding himself surrounded
in blunt darkness.
He turned, floating in eerie emptiness with no motion
and sounds, nothing but his own silent breathing. Was he even breathing at
all? He couldn't have and he wasn't.
He was dead. He felt cold, cut, and sliced. His dried up
veins showed no life. He was just a hollow image of his former self; A lost
spirit in an ocean of nothingness.
After a while with nothing running in his mind, he spotted a small splash
of paint in the
distance. Luigi squinted and made out something brown...green...red....blue....a
shine of deadly white...and scarce blood scattered across what seems
to be a tiny room
with three contorted bodies in it. He uneasily asked his feet to walk
unable to tell whether
he was or just floating over there closer to have a better view. And
when he realized the
beings in that reclused room, his eyes widened in horror. He shook his
head in disbelieve.
His eyebrows trembled and his mouth quivered. Within that
small picture was....the
professor,....his brother..... and himself.....stabbed and crushed to
death by the deadly
walls, King Boo had trapped them in. The dead faces staring at
nothing but thin air,
Mario in silence and E.Gadd nailed by the weapons.He saw his internal
"Dead......,"He wheezed. "We're...gone...," falling to his knees,
tears for seeing this awful sight of their death. And if this wasn't
already breaking his
spirit, Luigi's hollow hearings picked up a wicked laughter snickering
in the dark. He
immediately shot up in recognition of this voice. He could never forget
it.....even in his
"YOU!!" He snapped at the invisible ghost king somewhere around him.
won't leave us alone!!? Haven't you already had enough fun torturing
us to death!? "
" I will never have enough, string bean!!! I haven't EVEN started yet!"
"You've got a freakin' sick sense of entertainment!! You gas ball!!
DEAD!! You HEAR ME!!!" He gasped in fury.
King Boo didn't reply, but Luigi knew he was enjoying his play with
them, every last bit
of their presence, physically AND spiritually.
"Why...!?" He dryly asked. King Boo answered with an invisible force
slicing his already injured shoulder in two long strokes. He cried out
in horror with no
blood spilling, yet the binding pain was still attached to him. Luigi
collapsed onto his
four. Why was he still suffering after he was already killed?
"I'm a king amongst ghosts...I know my ways to scar a spiritual body
as much as
I can do to the living!"
A loud mixture of children's laughter, ghostly mockery, guns shots,
roaring monsters, breathing fire and familiar screams, played in his
forcefully pressed his ears in agony, desperately trying to block the
"Stop! Get out of my mind!!!" He couldn't stop it. "Please...." He begged
everything in the world to end forever. Clinging onto what remained
of his life...if he
ever had one left..
But...what about professor E.Gadd? What about Mario? Where were they?
~*~*~*In some dimension*~*~*~
"You sick dog!!!" Banged the prisoner against thick
"For one, I'm no hound, plumber face! I'm a king you better bow down
to! " King
Boo gave a smirk that even King Bowser had no match with. "If
you still treasure your
brother, I MIGHT spare you all. Besides....it is NOT you I'm centrally
I never give away the joy I leech from your souls! MUAHAHHAHAA!!!!"
(Please serene portrait ghost, show yourself. Help Luigi! I know you
don't get yourself caught by this gas bump! If only I had told Weege
sorry for all this...)
The young brother shifted, rolled, and tossed. The
clamor hollering continuously.
(...Luigi.....) In between the shrill noise, sounded a sweet and familiar
voice of an angel.
For a brief moment, Luigi was spared from the torture. He starred at
the background, but
then he noticed something that wasn't there before; A pale spark of
blue in a shape of a
(Wha-?) The individual gave a warm smile, letting
her long wavy gas-like hair
"A ghost...?" chocked Luigi.
She gently laid her hand on the young plumber's cheek, calming him like
whispering what seems to be....encouraging words of forgiveness?
(I'm...sorry, to have caused you so much pain...I know nothing can replace
you and your friends have gone through. But please, have patience and
be strong, please
hold on long enough.) Luigi felt serene warmth around her.
"What do you mean..?" He gazed into the beautiful, yet saddening eyes
ghostly lady. Her hand moved past his face, with everything coming to
a change in his
surroundings. The new image after that pointed on that of dim basement.
"Luigi! Sonny, Wake up!"
"Luigi Mario, open your eyes." He did as he was told. The first thing
he knew, was looking at the face of a princess.
