Ok, 'member that I had posted something called "Two Family Renunions?? Well, I'm kinda re-posting that. But it's gonna be different, let me tell you.
Here is...FIRST PART. He's my friend.
Chapter One: Secret Revealed
It was six thirty, and Po was hungry.
He trudged lazily towards the kitchen, rubbing his eyes and yawning.
He heard the slight patter of feet and turned around to face Monkey.
"What are you doing?" he asked. Po responded with a loud yawn.
"Just...getting something...to eat." he drawled. Monkey sighed.
"Po, every ten minutes you eat something! I've even seen you sleep-
eating! Every ten minutes each night!"
Po yawned again.
"You need to go back to sleep," Monkey snickered.
"No...Must eat..." Po snored. Monkey half-lead, half-dragged him to
Then suddenly, as Monkey dropped Po on his mattress, a loud BANG!!!
exploded in the air.
Po sat bolt upright. Monkey whistled through his teeth.
"It's happening." he whispered.
"What on earth," Po said nervously "was that?"
"Tigress," responded Monkey "That's what."
Po and Monkey looked out the window. There she was. And now Po could
see what had happened. An ironwood tree had been literally chopped in
half, and it had fallen on top of a gong. Tigress was looking down the
hill, clenching and unclenching her hand. Po spotted a small scarlet
spot the front of her paw.
"Eww." Monkey whispered "She's hurt."
"That was...AWESOME!!!" Po squealed.
"You're happy because she hurt herself?"
"What? No, no! Just what she did with that tree!"
Po stared back, eyes wide. Monkey rolled his eyes.
Tigress was punching another ironwood tree. Peices of bark flew
"Why does she do that?" Po asked, his wondering green eyes on Tigress.
Rafiki- that Morgul won't be laughing for long. *holds up dart gun* oh FYI it is magic proof so your little magic tricks won't work on it Morgul. let Tigress go or you will be sorry. this is my one and only warning. these darts can put you to sleep for a day. that gives me plenty of time to do what ever i what to do with you. so BEWARE ME!!!! heh heh heh!!! hahaha HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
Hiei- i would not want to be you Morgul. when Rafiki brings out the evil laugh she is serious.
Rafiki- *continues evil laugh*
Actually, I do have a dictonary of them! In my mind....Hehe, I just need to start writing it. Me and my friend are accidentally making words up all the time. And I might even borrow Shifu's 'razafrapsit', or whatever he said, and 'snarp'. I love those two words :D And sure, I'm posting...now!
Thank you!! I'm so glad you do! Please keep reading/commenting!
Wow, thanks!! You really want it to turn into the third movie? Though I really don't think that's gonna happen, it's a nice thought. Wouldn't it be cool....? Oh, wait, I'm getting carried away again. Sorry. Anyway, thanks again! Please keep reading and reviewing!
Please post, Mod(s)!
Chapter 28 (Continued Part 2)
"No! What have you done to her?" Tigress nearly screamed, switching gazes between the two siblings.
Morgul let out a forced laugh, his eyes dancing with cruel light, and waved his paw at his niece. Tigress collapsed and felt that same excruciating pain pound her head. Her fur felt brittle, her mouth tasted bitter and metallic, and the scent of copper cloyed her nostrils.
She wanted to wail and sob and scream and thrash, but she was as frozen as rock, eyes closed. Strained breathing was all she could manage. This time Morgul laughed without difficulty.
"The same as I will do to you, of course." Morgul hissed wickedly. "Ah, you are such a foolish young girl, niece. Thanks to you, I will soon have two of the most powerful warriors and the King of Tigrispart out of the way. Along with a useful...toy that they will bring along as well."
Tigress suddenly realized what was happening. She was bait, bait for Po and Rooper. They would come and try to rescue her, no doubt. And no doubt they would get captured as well. Tigress felt like smacking herself. She was such an idiot! Now, everything in Morgul's way would be eliminated because of her stupidity. Though, she didn't know what this 'toy' was; in fact, she didn't want to now. Something to make Morgul more powerful, no doubt.
What will happen to us? she wondered in horror. She could already guess.
"Ah, I will give you a choice, my dear." Morgul said smugly, like he'd read her thoughts. "You're either...err...eliminated, or you get turned into Morgulins, ever loyal to me and my cause."
"What is it?" Tigress managed to wheeze.
"What is your cause. Why do you do this?"
Morgul's eyes were hot with rage. "Not revenge. Not money. None of that. You see, no villain ever has a real cause. Once you take over the world and let everyone bow at your feet, what then? I had that happen, and it felt like someone was twisting me the whole time. I had to deal with politics, blah blah blah, and I felt so alone (cough)...No, I'm doing this so the world will acknowledge my power and tremble before me, hence giving me whatever I desire. Aaaaaand I won't have to deal with politics."
For once, Tigress realized that this villain was right. He had a cruel, odd wisdom that he knew how to use. It was dangerous, and Morgul knew it. He was probably the wisest villain Tigress had ever met. Great. Just great. He was smart as well as powerful.
Though not wanting to know, Tigress wondered what his plan was for all of them. Morgul, of course, seemed to know what she was thinking with uncanny preciseness.
"I will turn you into a Morgulin in front of your beloved Dragon Warrior," he sneered, and Tigress felt too weak to protest. She'd only done you-know-what out of desperation! "And then when you have nearly destroyed him and your brother, I will let you watch them fade in silent agony, and see what you have done."
Tigress wanted to scream at him to stop, not noticing that evil, torturous smile. Morgul just adored toying with his victims...with the actual truth. Another wave of pain pulsed through the striped feline, and Tigress realized this wasn't physical pain. She felt on the verge of breaking into a million shards in misery. So this is what it was like to have feelings, eh? She decided she hated emotions more than ever.
"They draw close." Morgul whispered gleefully. "And soon, everything I ever wanted to happen will come true."
He held out the ring again, muttering darkly under his breath. Tigress doubled over again and let out a silent scream. She could feel the power, that dark malice, worming through her brain and heart, weaving through and stitching on to her, dragging her deep into the evil. Part of her that still remained sane, still Tigress, still un-Morguled, thought of Po, and how much she wanted him here.
And that little memory, those jade green eyes and his laugh, seemed to be the only thing she could remember before the world disintegrated to blackness.
Spectacularific.....Wow, I like that! Going to have to add it to my 'Dictonary of Words that Really Aren't Words that I Like and Use Anyway'. And thanks! :D :D
@crlefan44 and Rafiki
I'm sorry, Rafiki, Morgul's currently too busy evilly laughing his head off to be available for...ahem...skinning, but maybe you could dart him instead...?
Yeah, poor them. Well, you're going to see where our Dragon Warrior is...(drumroll)....now!
Well, not now, but soon. Soon! (That was a quote, actually, from Secrets of the Furious Five...Po said it while--oh nevermind, I'm getting too carried away).
This is part two of Chapter 28, for those of you who want to know. Ah, whatever.
Back with our favorite panda.....
Stormy gray clouds roiled grumpily overhead, and the wind that whispered of rain shifted restleslly through the green leaves. The moon was nearly invisible, just a peek of shine through the dark angry clouds.
Po sat down on one of the sagging porches of the dilapidated houses. It creaked and protested loudly under his weight but managed to support him. The panda stared out at the dull scene, his eyes following the black winding river running like a smooth ribbon through his childhood home. Rooper stared around in awe, then joined Po at the decaying building.
The bear put his head on his hands and closed his eyes. If it wasn't for him, Tigress might be the one here instead of on her way to certain after-life. If it wasn't for him, she'd be here with her brother. If it wasn't for him, the term 'to live' might have meaning.
All. His. Fault.
Rooper was feeling forlorn himself. Anytime he pictured Morgul's sneering face, anger made his blood boil. Tigress's pain-twisted expression, Po's shouts of 'No!' and the way the 'mighty' tiger King couldn't do anything at all to help his sister made it even worse. Because Morgul had whispered in his ear, right before he went in, that if he so much as spoke, he would make him watch as Luca and his family was shredded to pieces. The threat still made his spine tingle.
"One sudden movement, one bold word--and they're done, nephew. You hear me? Done." The Black Wizard had hissed.
The rain started to fall.
The two sullen figures sat and made themselves even more angry as the rain dripped down to the blanket of springy green grass. Po abruptly opened his eyes and stood up, the porch letting out a moan of relief.
The panda wanted to run, to the most shadowed cave, to the highest mountain or to the deepest forest, a place where no one would ever find him. But all he did was trudge forward in the rain. Raindrops splattered on his nose and down his slick fur, blurring his vision like tears he hadn't cried. Po breathed deeply, focusing on all the good things in his life.
He traced his foot in a semicircle through the grass.
Mr. Ping. Leader Dhani.
Po thrust his paw to the sky and a raindrop fell down with breaking, then began sliding down his arm smoothly.
Jade Palace. Panda Village.
His eyes closed in deep concentration, he managed to get the drop of water to slide down to his elbow and quickly flexed his arm, adjusting for it to slip into his other palm.
Dumplings. Noodles. Tofu...snap out of it!
Moving swiftly, the panda maneuvered the drop to keep racing up and down his arm, and he moved his feet as if in a slow-motion Kung Fu move. He could feel memories flying through his mind. The good and bad. The yin and the yang.
Finally, with his latest memory still locked in his thoughts, he leaned over, stretched out his arm, and let the perfect little drop slide down on a young green peach sapling that was poking up bravely against the rain. It caught the drop in one of its leaves, then another caught it and tiltled forward, letting the raindrop fall into a small puddle.
For a blink of an eye, the puddle was a brilliant shade of gold, not too strong, but soft, then it faded and the puddle swirled in the image of a yin and yang symbol. But abruptly, it clouded over and all was still.
And Po knew what he had to do.
"C'mon, Rooper." he growled, eyes slitted and fierce. "Let's go rescue your sister."
Oops, sorry. Got your name wrong! Switched the words around by accident....Silly me. D: Well, anyway, thanks for your review.
Here we go...finally onto a new chapter....
Chapter Twenty-Eight: Decisions
When Tigress woke up, she was in yet another palace.
She was getting sick of palaces.
Outside, audible faintly only by cat ears, thunder rumbled. The wind howled softly.
Great, Tigress thought sarcastically. The gloomier the better.
Someone purred faintly in amusement.
Tigress craned her head upwards, her amber eyes diluted with pain, ears pressed flat against her skull in agony.
Two black figures stood there, watching her calmly. One had a gruesome, harrowing smile, and the other with a lovely, playful grin. One had dark green eyes, and the other trademark bloodred. Instantly, a snarl welled up in Tigress's throat, and she flexed her claws rythmatically. Then she locked eyes with the green-eyed female one, and the snarl died in her throat.
"Mei-Li..." the black she-cat seemed to falter, then continued on with her silky tone, though with turbulent eyes. She seemed confused. "Master Tigress," she corrected herself, "I have waited long for-"
"No." Tigress growled, eyes wide in shock. "You haven't waited to meet me, because I know...you've been watching me, you've seen me before--heck, you've held me before." It seemed as if Tigress had found another voice, her emotional one. "You're Scarlet. You're my mother."
Silence ruled, but Scarlet looked like someone had struck her with an arrow to the head.
"Great...stars..." she groaned, then crumpled to her knees. Morgul panicked slightly, breathing way too fast.
"Scarlet? Sis, wake up, we gotta--" he didn't seem worried, just frustrated, but his voice trailed off as the black fur on Scarlet began morphing to gray, then stark white. Ebony stripes practically grew back, like someone was coloring them in.
Tigress hadn't even realized what she was doing, but she'd staggered up and raced towards Scarlet. The white tigress let out a great shudder, then looked up from her curled position, with her eyes just as green as before, but they looked new...refreshed.
"Mei-Li?" she questioned dumbly, then asked. "Am I dead?"
"No, no you're not." Tigress smiled, gently stroking her mom's head, and for some reason holding back a sob. She remembered now. Everything. Yes, Scarlet was her mother, Rooper her brother, Rasket her father, and Binjo and Morgul her uncles. She could see her past zipping in front of her eyes, leaving her without breath.
"It's me, Mom. Mei-Li." The name sounded strange in her mouth, but Tigress didn't mind.
Scarlet, with the help of her new-found daughter, struggled to her feet, then stared at her with wide eyes.
"It's too good to be true," she murmured, then without warning wrapped her arms around Tigress. Said feline felt on the top of the world, but she stayed silent. Scarlet's fur smelled of cherry blossoms. It could of smelled of Po's wet pants for all she cared.
But then, Scarlet's fur flickered, her eyes wide in horror, and black flames licked up her until she was completely black again. She stumbled back against the wall and let out a strangled gasp. Tigress whipped around as fast as her wounded body would allow and glared at Morgul, who, with an infuriating calmness, held a ring out by a chain. It was completely black and smooth, with gold and purple flames scrawled on it.
Scarlet slid to the floor, closed her eyes, and exhaled. Then her nose twitched and she opened her eyes.
