Me- i guess so. soooo when's the chapter coming?
Rafiki- haha tough luck Ruby! i would've loved to see those pictures. oh by the way thanks for the idea.
Me- what do you mean?
Rafiki- wait for it......*Hiei screams in the background* *Rafiki- laughing* i put a snake in his toilet. hahaha
Me- *snickering* heheheh good one.
Rafiki- when are you posting on your stories Batskee?
Ruby: Yep! I did it! *standing tall and confident* I did it all by myself, in fact! Mhmm!
Me: *narrows eyes as I stand behind her*
Ruby: I had actually put one in the sheets and under her pillow. Haha, you should've seen the look on her face! Speaking of which, I think the pictures are almost done being developed! *hears ripping noises* Umm...nevermind.
Me: Ohhh Ruuuubyyy!
Ruby: *gulp* Good luck pranking Bluewire, Neo...
Yes! I love playing that game. I think it's my favorite. I usually use Pikachu, Kirby, and Meta Knight! Did you hear about the new SSB4 game coming out?
(Plants Vs. Zombies)
Haha, yeah. He's funny! Rage mode? Is that on the computer or DS version?
Yea! The yawning is just so weird. It?s like you read it and your body says? oh! Time to yawn.?
Yea I guess it doesn?t always work out XD then again I?m ALWAYS tired. YAAAAWWNN. Huh, that was a short one.
Neo: did you really put a live snake in batskee?s bed, ruby??!! That?s GENIUS! Where did you put it on the bed?? Like on the pillow next to hers or like under the sheets?
Im asking because I want to do it to bluewire XD he would FREAK OUT!
Yea! Brawl is one of my favorites! I use ike, link, fox, picachu and afew others. I haven?t played in a while.
And I like the newspaper zombie, especially in rage mode!
Neo: heck yea I would like a cookie!
Next part is coming up tomorrow
You mean that you don't want to let him down while working for him? If so, yes. I know. Letting someone down is one of the reasons I can be so nervous.
Ruby: You're always nervous. Like that one time I pulled a prank on you in the dark.
Me: *narrows eyes*...You put a snake in my bed!
Ruby: Yes. And you yelled, and yelled, and yelled! I didn't think you would ever stop! You know Batskee. You weren't very considerate of other people. Others were trying to sleep!
Me: *shaking and laughing in an...eerie way*
Anyway, I can't wait for the next part you post! I know you'll get AAAAAllll ttthhhheeee wwaaaayyyy thhheeerree!
Video games?! I LOVE video games! Do you happen to play a game called Brawl?! Super Smash Bros Brawl?!
Plants VS. Zombies. Yes, that game is a lot of fun! I think my favorite zombie would be the dancing one. How about you?
Y'know what's odd? When I read that you had 'yawned' I yawned. 0_0
Ginger: Oh, and I would be glad to give him a cookie when he wakes up. Would you like one Neo?
Ginger: Please, take some of my cookies. Hiei, I'd like you also to feel free and take one as well. And thank you for the lovely complement! I'm so glad to hear you like my cookies.
Silvermist: *reaches out to get one*
Ginger: No! These are for our guests!
Me- haha. that is funny. i wonder if i write yawn i'll actually yawn. let's see.
Me- ...... aw it didn't work.
Rafiki- of corse it didn't. Bluewire's was just luck.
Hiei- Ginger can i have a cookie?
Rafiki- that's not how a dog asks for a treat.
Hiei- how many times do i have to tell you. I'M A WOLF!!
Rafiki- wolf or dogs you still have to beg.
Hiei- ....BEG?! no way!
Rafiki- then you're not getting a cookie.
Hiei- grrr.....fine *gets on the ground in a bow* can i please have a cookie Ginger? pretty please?
Rafiki- i'm not impressed.
Yea he?s cool and all but the problem is that I don?t want to fail him, y? know?
You should look for a part time job when your 16! That way you?ll have experience early on and probably get better ones later on! That?s the issue with looking for jobs, they all want experienced workers.
That ?sickening feeling? is kinda what I was going for. That feeling should go away after a session of videogames! Oh and remember when you asked me if I played zombies vs plants? I played it and its really cool!
neo: na, he wrote all of that! So he gets to eat. For now!
Me: the pizza is in the sink and its SOGGY!!!!
Neo: he needs some sleep.
Me: ice-cream will fall from the sky!
Neo: got to sleep!
Me: YYYAAAAWWN (lol actually yawned when I wrote it XD) ok.
Trips and face plants on the hard wood floor.
Neo: uh. Are you ok?
Neo: I think he might want that cookie when he wakes up.
Poor hiei XD I?m sure you?ll get one too! If ginger is willing to make more!
I?m still working on the story. Aaaalllmmmooossssttttttt theeerrreeee.
Rafiki- i'll have that cookie thank you. *takes cookie and stars eating it* mmm Ginger makes a mean cookie. Yum.
Me- Rafiki! you can't take someone else's food...... without giving me a piece. *takes half of cookie* yum.
Hiei- can i have one?
Me & Rafiki- NO!!
Ten days? It seems longer than ten days. Maybe it's just me...
Ruby: It's always you. Everything is wrong with you.
Me: ...how flattering....
Anyway, you work for your uncle; $10 an hour? Wow! Sounds pretty good. Do you enjoy working for your uncle?
Hmm...I never really thought of what I'd do for a living when I get older.
Great chapter! So now we know what the letter says! (And how the letter should be read. Haha!)
I have a sickening feeling of why it was so shocking for Neo. It's a hunch but...nah. I won't say anything.
Ruby: Bluewire? Would you like a cookie that Ginger made?
Silvermist: I thought he was still on a diet.
Ruby; What? He's been on the diet for...who knows how long. (Ten days I presume) He deserves a little snack. *holds a cookie out* So, how 'bout it?
Neo: (continues to poke with stick) umm... probably because he didn't eat for a week straight...(poke)
I groan and struggle to reach out my hand.
Neo: maybe this diet was a bit much.
Neo to rafiki: bluewire's not weird! He?s...he's...ok yea he's weird, but that's beside the point! He?s so exhausted he doesn't even know what he's saying! (poke)
Me: stop poking me Mr. Walnut! The brownies aren?t ready yet! (YAAAAAAWN)
Me: the unicorn?s parked outside?feed her some bacon?
I can?t believe I?ve been off for more than 10 days. I think. Anyway I?ve been getting some work from my uncle after school! $10/hour! That?s insane! Although the rest of my days were shot I still made a good amount of money!
Alright, that aside I hope my next part works out well!
(The beginning of the mysterious note) (Preferably read in the voice of Morgan freeman)
Pardon my assistant, he?s very mysterious.
My resources tell me that you?re searching for the treasure. Be forewarned, speaking aloud of such riches is dangerous. Many shady sorts are looking for this treasure and will do anything to get their hands on it. But after observing you two, I?ve decided that you are indeed worthy of the treasure. Come to my shack on the outskirts of the village and we can discuss more later.
The serpent symbol was printed on the bottom center of the parchment.
Neo: do you think we should go? I mean, it could be a trap.
Silvermist: it?s the only lead we?ve got. We better start looking.
Silvermist: ooooh! One sec!
She rushed over to a nearby stand and purchased a straw hat.
She came back with the hat slung over her shoulders secured by the neck string.
Neo: nice hat!
Silvermist: thanks! I thought it looked neat.
After circling the outskirts of the village, the weather changed rapidly. Rainclouds moved in from the east and blocked any kind of sunlight from breaking through turning everything grey and cold. Villagers quickly closed up shop and ran to their homes. A light drizzle began and they knew they didn?t have much time till the storm hit.
Silvermist: hey look! There?s a house all the way down that road!
Neo: it?s farther than the outskirts of town. That could be it!
They investigated the home. The outside was well kept and there was a large garden to the right of the house that seemed to go on forever.
They get to the front door.
Neo: wha?! The door?s been forced open!
They rush inside not sure what awaits them.
Neo: take the front room. I?ll check the others.
They fan out and search the home for anything unusual.
Silvermist found the living room and saw nothing but beautiful furniture, made entirely of mahogany.
Silvermist to herself: looks like it?s a whole collection from the same carpenter. This stuff looks incredibly expensive!
There was a fireplace with a pot for cooking just outside the fire. There were several knickknacks on the chimney and a huge paining of a family of foxes. It was all in shades of oranges, browns, yellows, and blacks. There was an orange fox in his prime with his wife and 2 children (an older boy and younger girl).
Silvermist: looks like one happy family?
Neo investigated several rooms down a hallway but none seemed to be important till he got to the last room. The door was slightly open as well. He slowly pushed the door wider open and saw a bed in the far right corner with someone in it. The weather outside became worse as the raindrops started showering onto the clay tiled roof. The rest of the room was filled with papers, a desk, chairs, and a dresser. The usual bedroom furniture. Neo went up to see who was in the bed. He reached his hand to the mysterious figure and pulled the sheets. There was a dark orange and grey fox facing the wall.
Neo: hello? Are you alright? Mr.monomoto?
He tugged his shoulder and Han shifted facing toward the ceiling. Neo?s eyes widened in fright?
TBC-DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUU!!!!
Me: Whoa. Talk about being forceful. Making people going on a diet, Neo? That's...a little much.
Silvermist: Are you kidding? That'd be perfect for Batskee. She hasn't been writing much either! Go on a diet, Batsk. Neo and I will keep track for ya both.
Me: What?! I don't need to go on a diet either! I'm perfectly fine the way I am.
Ruby: Somebody didn't look in the mirror today...
Me: Hey! That was RUDE!
Ruby: So? I'm not the one who made her characters dumber than they need to be.
Me: Zenghui isn't stupid.
Ruby: *sarcastically* Yeah, right Batskee. And I'm a brown bear in her 20's who loves to salsa. We all now Zenghui being smart isn't true!
Me: Anyway, I look forward to your chapter. I'm interested to see where the treasure is.
I have a hard time writing things that aren't corny. I either laugh at my awful writing or delete it and go do something else.
Silvermist: *shouts out in background* That's why you need to go on a diet!!!
@batskee hehe yea.
now about the new part, i'm trying to make it sound less of a cliché and more of an actual warning. and also thinking of the treasures significance...
neo: you know what your problem is?
neo: your not focused enough! so I've come up with a diet so that you will spend less time eating and stuff and actually writing!
Me: this cant be good.
neo: alright, so for you 3 square meals a day, you will eat sunlight and the energy of the universe!
Me: so I cant eat anything till I write something?
Me: you're insane! I have to eat something!
neo: no you don't! don't worry about it! just write something and this cookie is yours!
Me: (stomach growls) all of this because I didn't write much?!
Me: that's it! if im on this stupid diet then you are too!
neo: what!? why me?!
Me: because you're my inspiration!
neo: that doesn't even make any sense!
Me: it doesn't have to, I'M BEAUTIFUL!
neo: (pokes with stick) huh...looks like the diet worked!
Awesome chapter dude! No rough draft? That's even better!
Silvermist: Heh-heh, I guess he knows how fast I can get ready in the day.
Me: Do you think Neo spies on YOU?!
Silvermist: Nah. That's sounds like something Ruby would do.
Me: Yeah, you're right.
Ruby: HEY! Grr....anyway. I wonder what's on the parchment paper.
Me: We'll have to find out in the next chapter/part of
The Tale of Neo!
Me: *to Bluewire* You watched it 8 times for inspiration?
Ruby: That's brilliant! Po and the Furious Five are an excellent inspiration for all KFP writers! *slaps me in the back of head*
Ruby: Why couldn't you think of that?!
Me: Why are you so violent?!
@anyone and everyone
SORRY!!!!! I?ve been so busy this past week that I couldn?t get near a computer!
Neo: Oh! What a relief! I guess I should plug the phone back in!
Me: you?ve been watching way too many movies.
Neo: oh and you don?t?
Neo: what about you watching kfp 8 times!
Me: I was on vacation! And I need inspiration!!!
Neo: yea sure. Whatever FLOATS YOUR BOAT.
Me: it?s a good movie man!
Neo: not 8 times as good.
Me: I guess video games gave me really high tolerance for movies.
Neo: na, I think your OBSESSED.
Me: obsessed eh? Your one to talk! Didn?t you watch a Jackie Chan marathon?
Neo: I was? it was? shut up!
Me: I?m only teasing!
PS: sorry that tomorrow never came
As the sun light beamed through the window, it gleamed onto neo?s face. He woke up half asleep rubbing his eyes and eating his pillow. It was really wet and he spat it out the moment he realized what he was doing. He got out of bed stretched and knocked on the door twice. He waited then entered to find silvermist?s bed had no sheets and only the pillow remained. Her legs were still on the bed but her face was sideways and drooling on the floor. Neo?s expression could only be described as bewildered. He had a straight face with drooping eyes as he went to the bathroom. He splashed his face with ice cold water and heard a thud. He looked out of the bathroom and silvermist?s legs were completely off the bed. She was grumbling because of shock of movement.
Neo: come on, its morning.
He rubbed his eyes again.
Neo: ugh? we got to find Han, now let?s go.
Silvermist: five more minutes.
He just went back to freshen up and when he returned the bed had its sheets on and silvermist was just sitting at the foot of the bed all ready to go.
He kept the same expression but his eyebrows were up.
Neo: alright then.
They left the room with neo leading. Silvermist was just about to close the door but remembered something. She went to their bags which were at the far left corner of her room and shuffled threw them.
Silvermist: ah, there it is!
She put the map away knowing its importance.
Neo: you coming?
She slammed and locked the door behind her and met with him outside the inn. Even as early as it was, the market was buzzing with life.
Silvermist: so, just ask around?
Neo: sounds like a plan.
They split up. Neo took the north half and silvermist took the south half. They asked several people who Han Monomoto was and where he lived. No one had any idea of what they were talking about. Or at least that?s what they said?
Silvermist: hi! Excuse me. Do you know anyone named Han monomoto?
The pig turned from the stall.
Pig: huh? OH, NOT YOU AGAIN!
Pig: I AM NOT A DIRECTORY!
Silvermist: what?s your problem!? I just asked you a simple question!
Pig: JUST LEAVE ME ALONE!
He ran away grumbling rude things under his breath. She just stood there wondering what went wrong. She talked to the goat that stood next to the pig that left.
Silvermist: what?s his problem?
Goat: oh, he?s been like that since forever ago. He?s really gentile and oversensitive.
There was a figure in the alley across the market. They were observing her. She glanced over to where the figure was but it disappeared.
Silvermist looked back to the goat.
Silvermist: so do you have any idea who Han Monomoto is?
Goat: I have no idea. Sorry I couldn?t be of much help.
Silvermist: its ok, thanks anyway.
She began to walk further down the market and a rude duck shoved her.
Silvermist: oooff! Hey watch it!
The duck just walked down an alley.
Silvermist: what the?
There was a sheet of parchment in her hand. She ran down the alley he went down but he was nowhere to be found. She unfolded the parchment and read it. She then ran back up north to neo?s half of the market and found him talking to some guards.
He turned away from the guards.
She handed him the parchment and he read?
TBC- I didn?t write a rough draft or anything!
You're welcome. I'm glad you liked it! I had just found out that I could've done this: .:|*|:. or had just done .:|Happy (Belated) Birthday!|::.
I just liked the first one though.
Ruby: *snickers* I knew. I have my ways.
Zenghui: It's alright Neo. She didn't really know. She was just saying that to make Batskee feel bad.
Me: You did what?
Ruby: 0_0 Umm...gotta go! *runs off*
Me: Get back here!
Fall? Fall would be my second favorite. With all the trees and colors changing, it's really beautiful when you drive around and see it all.
Hoodies are comfy. They're one of my favorites to wear during winter and fall. It also helps when your friend wears a hoodie so you can stuff a whole bunch of leaves in their hood and pull it over their head! ...Not that I did that or have it in mind....okay. Yeah, I had it in mind.
Me: *nearly chokes on cookie* Wha-?! It was your birthday yesterday?!
Ruby: Yeah. Didn't you know that?
Me: 0_0 If you knew, then why didn't you tell me? Or post something?!
Ruby: You never let me touch your laptop. Ever since last time...*looks off into distance as she has a flashback*
Me: ...You know I can't see those right?
Ruby: *still having flashback*
Zenghui: *bowing Palm-to-fist style* We hope you've enjoyed your birthday.
Ruby: We also thought your last chapter was awesome!
Me: Haha, one of the longest for your stories! I love long chapters....*sigh*
Silvermist: *facepalm* Anyway, Happy (Belated) Birthday and we really liked your last chapter!
Hurray! Winter is coming (both in reality and this story). I am, honestly, a winter person.
Woops! Just discovered I used part and chapter. I?ll stick with part!
Neo turned the corner nonchalantly and found Silvermist kneeling on top of the rouge ox, pinning his arm to his back with one hand and holding the purse in the other. The guards took the ox away in chains and the female pig ran around the corner flailing a 2x4.
Lady pig: ILL GET YOU, RUFFIAN!
Silvermist showed her the purse.
Lady pig: OH, THANK YOU!
She tossed the 2x4 aside accidently throwing the board at one of the guard?s shins. The guard let go of the ox for a second to care for his shin and the ox made a break for it. He elbowed the last guard that had a grip on him and he got free. He ran a block down and made a sharp right turn with the guards chasing behind. Silvermist and neo shared a sigh of exhaustion.
Silvermist: I?m sure the guards will get him.
Neo nodded and the walked back to the main market.
Neo: the sun is setting, let?s find an inn somewhere.
Silvermist: sure. Umm. Have you ever noticed that the days seem to be getting shorter???
Neo: actually, it?s been getting colder too.
Silvermist: OOOOH! Winter?s coming!
Neo: i can?t wait for the snow!
Silvermist: that?s going to be amazing!
They walked down the main market street, looking on opposite sides for an inn.
Neo: so did you find anything out?
Silvermist: yes, I found the store with the serpent on it and talked to the owner about the map. He said he didn?t know anything but that the previous owner, Han Monomoto, would but there?s a problem.
Silvermist: I don?t know where he is.
Neo stops walking and turned to her.
Neo: so all we have to go on is a name???
Silvermist: well yes, but its more than we had before!
Neo: yea I guess.
They continued to walk.
Neo: oh yea.
He searched in his pockets.
He takes out the extra lollypop and held it out to her.
Neo: it?s really good!
She snatched it with such speed; neo didn?t even notice it was gone till he saw her eating it. Neo looked hat her amazed. She looked at him sheepishly and gazed past him. She pointed to a building behind him. He followed her finger to where she pointed.
Neo: eh? Oh an inn! You didn?t even have to say a word! Come on!
The lollypop was so good Silvermist dared not interrupt the savory flavor of it. All she could do was nod in agreement.
They got to their room and were right in front of the door.
Neo: so, any idea if these rooms are any good?
Silvermist was still eating the lollypop so she just shrugged. He unlocked the door and they walked in. there were 2 separate rooms with king sized beds and a bathroom. The wallpaper had traditional red and gold lords and ladies in kimonos. The furniture was plush and very comfortable.
Neo: look at the wallpaper. I guess it?s imported or else THAT wouldn?t be here.
The beds had dragon decorated lanterns that hung above. The beds themselves had red silk sheets (I mentioned red a lot because red is lucky in Chinese culture.)
Silvermist finished her lollypop and threw the stick aside. Then she jumped on the perfectly prepared bed.
Silvermist: OOFFFF! Awwwww yeaaaaa. Finally, a real bed!!!
She was face down and snuggled a nearby pillow at the head of the bed. Neo shook his head and smirked.
Neo: alright, well good night.
He locked the front door and went into the other room. He closed the door and went to bed. The room had a window that was facing out to the market. As he laid on the extremely comfortable bed, he shuffled in the sheets and looked up to the stars.
Neo: the stars are fading. . .
TBC-longest one to date!
Oh and today is my birthday! Sorry I forgot to mention that earlier. : I
