The ghost boy flew over a busy city called Amity Park. His fists clenched at his sides, and his eyes glowed bright.
A few people below shouted up and pointed at the sky where he flew, but he tried to ignore them. This is all Plasmius' fault! the teen thought.
A newspaper riding the wind slammed into the ghost boy's face. He pulled it off in annoyance, and tossed it to the side. Letting it flutter down to the ground, or follow the wind's path to who-knows-where.
He already knew what the headlines said. He didn't want to read them again. Ghost Boy once again declared Amity Park's number one ghost enemy by our beloved mayor, Vlad Masters.
He chuckled to himself quietly. It was more out of anger than anything else. He was on his way to give Masters a visit, and to 'talk'.
He turned down the street of his arch enemy, flying a bit faster. The ghost boy came slowly to a stop, then paused for a second in the air as a cold chill went down his spine and through his body. His ghost sense came out in a blue wisp of breath, which told the ghost boy that Vlad was indeed home.
Frowning the ghost boy waited. Sure enough Vlad Plasmius himself came outside in his ghost form. He had obviously been expecting the teen, and smiled his signature smirk. "I thought you'd be coming here Danny. Enjoy my little announcement?" Vlad asked, but it was more of a rhetorical question. He wasn't looking for an answer.
The ghost teen Danny seethed with anger and glared at Vlad. "Listen Plasmius, It took me a long time to get my hero reputation. I don't appreciate you telling lies about me being evil."
Vlad clasped his hands. "But Daniel, I just looovee messing with your life." he snickered.
Danny clenched his fists at his side as they started to radiate with glowing green energy. He had just about had it with Vlad. Maybe it was time to teach him a lesson.
Danny flew forward in a sudden burst of rage and lashed out at Vlad. Plasmius caught Danny by the arm quickly and flipped him over to pin him to the ground by the shoulders. "Get. Off!" Danny screamed, squirming.
"Come now boy, haven't you learned by now that you're no match for me?" Vlad smirked again, making Danny freeze and narrow his eyes. He had had it with Vlad's smirks, and the way he always treated him like child.
Danny heaved upward and pushed Vlad off of him.
"Take this V-Man!!" He screamed, blasting a powerful toxic green ghost ray at Vlad. It hit his chest and sent the man backwards into the brick wall of his mansion.
Vlad got up seemingly unharmed, though the mansion was not as lucky. The wall had a gaping hole with grey, stone bricks scattered around on the sidewalk.
The man chuckled. Danny couldn't see what was so funny. "Come on boy, lashing out at me in anger? And you say that you're nothing like me." Vlad took a step forward, making him stagger back in response. "I-I'm not!"
"You're just like me." He continued forward until they were standing in the middle of the road. In the distance the sun was sinking below the horizon in a ball of orange flames.
"I. Am. Nothing. Like. You!" Danny yelled.
Surging forward, he put all of the power he had into one punch. Unfortunately, though, that wasn't enough. Vlad caught Danny by the arm, and flung him roughly to the side.
A loud thud was heard as Danny was slammed into the wall.
He fell to the concrete... StarPaw,
PART 7, (Danny)
Vlad had gone to his own room. After listing off a bunch of new rules, of course. Danny sat cross-legged on his bed, his chin resting in his hands.
He'd found out he had a pretty bad habit of talking to himself.
One of these new rules said that he wasn't even able to go outside....
"I know it doesn't seem fair, Daniel. But... it's for your own good. You know how I talked about people who wanted to hurt you? This is so they can't get to you."....
It really WASN'T fair... Danny sighed. I guess he IS just trying to help... Danny thought reluctantly. Although I reealllyyy wanna get out of this stupid house once in a while...
Deciding he couldn't go to sleep, Danny got up as quietly as he could and sneaked out of his room. He needed to stretch his legs a bit...
His footsteps echoed eerily in the huge empty halls, and it was starting to really freak Danny out. He kept getting this bad feeling about Vlad, though there was absolutely NOTHING wrong with the man. "I guess I must be going crazy." Danny chuckled to himself. "Haha. Maybe he's some sort of super villain." it was a joke, since that couldn't possibly be true. Vlad was MUCH too generous to be evil. The fact that he was taking care of Danny was amazing. Any other person would have given him to an orphanage, or social services. Danny couldn't imagine that.. He'd much rather be with Vlad. Even if he had to stay hidden.
Danny passed by Vlad's private study, and silenty wondered what was in there. He had a weird urge to bust the door down, and search around for more information about the man who was letting him live here, but he just kept walking. No need to go and touch people's private property.
The clock struck twelve, and Danny decided it was time to go back to bed. Yawning, he headed back to his own room. He needed to be well rested for his and Vlad's next training session tomorrow.
"Concentrate, Boy." Vlad scolded. Danny's breaths came out in small huffs, and he wiped sweat off of his forehead.
Vlad decided they should work a bit on combat. You know, Punching, kicking, the works.
It was a lot harder than you'd imagine. Vlad was extremely fast, and his attacks came seemingly out of no where. Danny couldn't keep up. Oh, let's also not forget the fact that Vlad was a lot more powerful than he was and wouldn't go easy on him. "You can take it." Vlad had told him.
Danny wasn't so sure. WHAM! Another kick to the face while he was distracted. "Your enemies won't play fair." Vlad advised him. "They'll take advantage of an unfocused mind."
He was right. Getting into a fighting position, Danny got ready for the next attack. He needed to focus.
The next time Vlad attacked, everything seemed to be in slow motion. Danny saw him coming, and swiftly dodged out of the way. Making sure to land a kick at the same time.
Danny's feet slid across the ground as he came to a stop.
Vlad stood straight and nodded his approval.
"You're getting better." he complimented.
"Thanks." Danny huffed.
Vlad turned back into his human self, and started walking towards the door. Holding up a hand, he told Danny "I have some business to attend to, so I'll have to leave the house for a while." he looked over his shoulder "I suspect you'll be fine on your own?"
Danny nodded eagerly. "You don't have to worry."
Now Danny turned into his human self as well.
Vlad stared him in the eye for a second, then chuckled. "I'm sure you will. Well, best be off."
With that, he walked away leaving Danny alone in the training room.
"Hmmm.." Danny wandered around the house, wondering what he could do now. Maybe he could throw a party! "Haha.." Yeah, and invite who?? He didn't know anyone except Vlad. Which actually... seemed kind of sad...
Danny sat down on a huge couch, and turned on the TV. He was always too busy to watch it.
"Still, there has been no sign of Amity Park's hero Dann-" Booorrrinngggg...
"I'll never let go Jack..." Too dramatic...
"It's over 9,000!!!!" Too unrealistic...
"I love you, everything burrito..." A talking dog? So unoriginal...
Sighing, Danny turned the TV off. There was nothing good to watch anyways.
Danny wanted to go outside, but he knew that he wasn't allowed. So he didn't... But that didn't mean he wasn't unhappy about it. StarPaw,
I made another part for this fic, but it didn't post for some reason.
I'll post it again. StarPaw,

Hey StarPaw. Sorry that I haven't been commenting, I was busy on my fanfics.
Anyway, I love your fanfics and I love your stories. I have no doubt that you'll be a great poetry and story writer, I think you'll do great.
Did you read my other fanfics, "Team Phantom" and "Nicktoons: Secrets of the Worlds."?
Keep up the good work.
(trying to type this without my glasses. Hard to see. Y^Y. I don't feel like going upstairs to get them.)
Oh wow, that's a lot of OC's. *nervously waves*
Pleased to meet you...
Most of my OC's, I've forgotten. XP But I do have quite a few characters I've thought up..
Layla: "Hi. You already know me. At least, I'd hope." *waves* "My mom's an artist, and I love rock music. Livin' the halfa life." *smiles*
(personally, one of my favorites. Though I haven't made a fic with him yet)
Vidd: "Hey. If you ever need someone to fix your hoverboard, I'm your boy... also... Anyone know where I can find the Fentons?" *pulls goggles down on face* "I'm hoping to become their apprentice."
What's-her-name-that-I-don't-remember: "Mess with me, and you'll get so shocked, you'll go on... vacation... permanently." *evil laugh* "Oh, by the way, I destroyed Phantom." *laughs even louder*
I can't remember any more of my OC's at the moment, sorry. ^^
Oh, and I'll yell Mika to put less Powerades in the cookies. StarPaw,
PLEASE POST! PLEASE POST! This is my 3rd time trying!
PART 6, (Danny)
It was a week after Danny's 'first transformation', and his progress was unexpectedly... well... slow.
He still hadn't fully mastered transformation, and had little control over his other powers. Danny was starting to lose hope. He would probably NEVER learn how to control his powers again. How can Vlad be so patient? Danny asked himself. It's been a whole week, and I still haven't mastered such a simple task as transforming!"
They were eating dinner, and Danny was picking at his plate, too depressed to eat. "Daniel, what's the matter?" Vlad asked, causing Danny to stiffen slightly.
"I'm terrible at this." Danny sighed, making Vlad tilt his head slightly in confusion. "Terrible at what, dear boy?"
Danny stabbed a piece of steak with his fork. "These powers." he spat out.
Vlad gave him a sympathetic look, only making Danny feel worse. "It's only been a week-"
"Exactly!" Danny snapped. "Does it really take THAT long?!"
Vlad gave Danny a scolding look "Yes." he stated simply. "It takes time Danny, and if you don't have the patience to deal with it, then you might as well not learn how to control your powers at all."
Danny sighed once more. Vlad was right, as the young teen was quickly beginning to find out he often was.
"You know, if I had my memory back this'd be a lot faster." He suggested. Vlad stiffened, and Danny was surprised when Vlad snapped at him. "Don't ever say such a thing again!"
Danny flinched. Usually Vlad was so nice, he rarely yelled at him. Was it really so wrong to want his memory back?
I mean, if the man had lost his memory, wouldn't he want it back!?
"I'm going back to my room." Danny said dryly, storming off. I swear, sometimes he is just SO hard to get along with!!! Danny yelled in his mind. It's like part of me hates his guts, and the other part totally trusts him.
This made him wonder... Which part of him was right??....
(Vlad) Even as an amnesiac child, Daniel can be impossible to get along with. Vlad thought to himself. Though he had to admit, he'd been a bit harsh. He only yelled because he didn't want Danny to get any funny ideas and try to regain his memory. Then everything Vlad had worked so hard to achieve would be ripped from his grasp.
Vlad left the room, headed for his office, and collapsed in his chair. Laying his head in his hands, he let out a huge sigh.
This could prove to be more difficult than Vlad had anticipated, especially if the boy was starting to get curious.
For the last week Vlad had kept Danny too busy to go outside, but that wouldn't last forever. Eventually Daniel would want to wander outside, it was only natural.
Vlad couldn't let that happen though. There were too many things that could happen. What if he bumped into his parents?
No. Then they'd take Danny away from him.
He couldn't have that....
There was the sound of a door handle turning, and the door to Danny's room opened.
Vlad stepped in slowly. "Listen Danny... I'm sorry. I shouldn't have..." Vlad's voice drifted away.
Danny just stared at the ceiling. "It's okay, let's just forget about it."
"Listen, now may not be the time.. but I've made a few...er... rules."
At this, Danny lifted his head. "Rules?" He questioned.
Vlad stood taller. "Yes."
Danny raised an eyebrow. "What type of rules?"
Vlad cleared his throat and took a step forward. "Rules to keep you safe. At least until we can move to another town." Vlad gave Danny a pleading look. "I swear, it's only for your safety."
"Move? Why would we need to do that?" Danny asked. Vlad walked over to Danny's bed and sat at the end. "There are some bad people in this town Daniel, and with you unable to control your powers... you wouldn't stand a chance against any of them." Danny crossed his legs. "Bad people? What type of bad people?" he asked curiously.
Vlad sighed. "Ones who want to get rid of you Danny... Permanently."
Danny looked down sadly. "Really?"
"Uh huh." Vlad nodded. "Why would I lie to you?"
He did have point, Danny thought. He trusted this man, and if he said that they needed to get away from this town then so be it. It WAS for his safety after all. "When do we leave?" Danny asked. "It may take quite a while. My other homes were kind of... destroyed. By some trouble-making ghosts. But nothing to worry about. I'll get a team to build a nice house far away from here, and as quickly as possible." Vlad assured him.
"And now... about those rules..."............. StarPaw,
I'm sorry, I know you guys must HATE me for not updating in a month.....
Forgiveness cookie? *hands you all a cookie*
I AM SO SORRY LUNA!! *hugs and cries* PLEASE FORGIVE!!!
