"You better not upset me if
you still want your fatty brother back!!" He playfully flipped the bottle.
"I would favor your presence dead much more," and with that, he let
the undead mob loose.
"....uGhHhhhh...I looooooove cOooOOmpan----y."
The zombie eagerly advanced stumbling like a broken legged man. Daisy yanked
her leg off the hand. "Get
your ugly hands off of me!!!" She raised her fists, striking the arm
at full force.
"What's going on!? Daisy?! Luigi?!" E.Gadd's voice came over the Gameboy
Horror in the cadet's overalls' pocket.
"WooooooN't t...Yuuuu coooooOOome JOIn us?"
"Ohh.. it's just a matter of time until I have the girl in my grasp."
King Boo was amused by their on going fighting.
"Over my dead body!" He drew his PG3K holding it ready. "If it's Daisy
you want, then you havta get through me first!"
"With pleasure!!!" A group of skeletons and two ghostly bulldogs darted
Once again, E.Gadd was left in suspense as the two had their hands
full until they realized that it didn't take much for the undead to gather
together. Daisy and Luigi were surrounded in no time.
"Not good..." They moved in little by little, pushing our heroes closer
and closer against their back.
"Did you know that this girl is not human?" The king threw in between.
"What?" The questioned popped up while they held their guards ready.
A zombie leapt at Luigi, who jumped aside whacking its skull of its body.
The second the body fell,
a ghostly skeleton flung at him. Luigi swiftly blinded it with his
flash light it growled hiding its face. He saw his chance and took his
Poltergust 3000 for a clean up.
It tried to escape the grip of the strong tidal wave. "Oh no, you're
not going anywhere!" Luigi yanked the nozzle sucking until the ghost finally
disappeared into the PG3K.
Before he even knew, Luigi suddenly felt a bite on his behind.
The dog growled and jerked his "paperboy" by the lower portions of the
overalls. "Hey! Let go!!" Spooky continued tugging, twisting his cloths
fiercely. A little blood came into view, which induced more dogs trying
a bite of him. "EGAD!"
Daisy just barely dodged a claw zooming past her forehead. She ducked
and ran full force against the skeleton's ribs, shattering it into small
bones. The numbers of enemies were
rising and an escape was growing slim.
"They keep coming and coming, Luigi! We can't keep this up any longer!"
"Stop pretending that you are the Princess of Sarasara Kingdom! Cause
you are not her!"
"Say what?!" Luigi glanced over the imposter of Daisy.
"Luigi,...I.." she didn't know what to say. At that moment, King Boo
halted his subjects.
"That's right, Luigi. The girl next to you is NOT the princess
of Sarasara Land. She is a gho -
"Be quiet!!" She bellowed defending her identity. Her breath showed
denial and fright.
"Is that true?" the woman flinched at the question, obviously scared
to answer. He looked at her, waiting. After some silent seconds, she felt
she could handle it and so
she anxiously faced him.
Pressing the words out: ".....He is....not lying....." Luigi was struck
with thousands of emotions. He backed away from the imposter, fist clenched
with the feelings of betrayal, confusion, frustration, and hatred.
"You-You have been against us all along!! So this is how he tracked
us down. You are his spy!"
"Luigi, no! It's not what you think!" She begged, tears starting down
to her face. All her hopes of safety shattered within an instant.
King Boo simply burst out in laughter. "You can't hide from me like
the other ghosts of the mansion tried. Melody didn't do a good job in
hiding you and I pressed Lydia to tell me everything I needed to track
you down. " She was silent, broken with no words. "Serenity, Spirit of
the mansion's royalty!!!" King Boo announced, revealing her true identity.
Like a reaction, the figure of Daisy dissipated and the form of a beautiful
long-haired young mistress came forth. Her gasly figure swayed in the wind.
"You are-!?" Realization hit Luigi like a bullet. Certainly she wasn't
Daisy, but she was the same woman who tendered him, encouraged him and
begged him for forgiveness for letting them go through the agony before
their death, when he was floating in the dead dimension.
"Came to me, Serenity. I've been waiting for you to become part of
my collection!" Obediently, she moved toward the boo. She was reluctant
to go, but she had given up escaping the enemy royalty of her family. Luigi
was her last sparkle of hope. And now....it has burned its last glow.
"Here! I have no need of this filth in my bottle." Lazily, he flung
Mario's spirit which landed in the plumber's hands which disappeared by
contact. "You should be grateful, fraighty-cat! I would've crushed you
beyond possibility that even Serenity could've have brought you back to
life!" He turned, about leaving the graveyard, followed by a depressed
ghost. Luigi caught a glimpse on her angelic face and it literally broke
his heart. Seeing her in such a state, he couldn't help it. He was bothered
by what was occurring.
"Luigi, I know you are tired of this whole deal. You all will leave
this mansion alive. Just for now pull yourself together You've gotta find
King Boo! Mario's counting on you. "
"But finding King Boo with such a time limit is impossible!" The professor
"Isn't there anything I can do?!"
"There is....you have a slim chance." She turned her back to them.
Luigi blinked while E.Gadd came from behind.
"You mean Serenity? The ancient spirit who has the ability to give
life? Isn't she the only survivor and the last of her tribe? Oh and in
case you're wondering, I've conducted my last research on her. Besides
she was the one who escaped while I had communicated with you over the GBH."
"I remember that. So I guess, looking for this ghost is gonna be a
priority." He spoke dryly while staring at the soul-less Mario resting
near him. "She better be able to help him."
"She will," her warm smile promised hope. "I'm......sure she will....."
~*~*~*End of flashback*~*~*~
Guilt, that's what plagued the young brother. Luigi fell to his knees.
"What have I done....?"
