@Everyone reading this!: Hello! I guess after you read the last part of Skye's Dairy (A.K.A. How to Save China) that you came here like I advised, or you where just story surfing with nachos and thought this one was interesting. Well, nacho peeps, I can tell you, THIS WILL BE INTERESTING! Probably more than you can handle, but onto the story. (THIS IS NOT THE SEQUEL TO SKYE'S DIARY!!! AND YES MODS, THIS HAS KFP STUFF IN IT! But later on in the story.)
Han Kai's POV (He lives in the Everglades with his two sisters.)
I relaxed on the trunk of a huge Sequoia, and the Spanish Moss in the branches tangled around in the breeze. I was sitting in one of my favorite spots, gazing out into the swamp. As I was about to fall asleep, but a huge rattling and popping shook me awake. "Dad gummit!!!!" I heard a voice yell as a huge BAM! filled the air. I ran over to see what had happened, and I saw my friend, Fender, kicking the tire of a beaten-up red truck. I whistled through my teeth, and cracked a smile at my bobcat friend. He was having a full-out tantrum, kicking the tires with his feet, grumbling under his breath, and smacking the car windshield. ?Hey, Fender!? I called out. Fender whipped around, and smiled. ?Eh, I knew it was you, Panther!? Fender smiled. ?You can call me by my real name, you know. It seems like you forget and just call me ?Panther?.? I said with a teasing smile. Fender smiled back, and then pulled out a twisted up, rusty wrench from his old worn-out jean over-alls. ?Are you gunna help me fix ?er up?? Fender asked, while looking back at his truck, that was blowing out smoke. ?Are you sure it?s not on fire?? I asked, while looking at the huge clouds of smoke. ?Won?t know ?till we find out!? Fender said as he walked over to his pick-up truck. The copper pot he has stuck on his head for a hat titled slightly, and I walked over to help my crazy friend.
Later on that day, Fender and I sat on the dock. ?Hey, wanna fish? I brought some worms?, I said, holding up my tin can. ?How?s about after I finish my lunch?? Fender asked, as he started digging in his over-all pocket again. He smiled and pulled out a jar of mayonnaise with a plastic spoon stuck in it, and he started shoveling down spoons into his mouth. I cringed at the disgusting sight, but hooked a worm onto my fishing pole, and laid back, waiting for a fish to bite.
@Everyone: Sorry if that was a long chapter! I was just so excited to start this story! Hope you liked it!!!
?Hey, look, a shooting star!? Meiling said as she swung at the top of Han Kai?s shoulders. ?Oooh! In France, shooting stars mean that an apocalypse is coming!!!? Pierre said, jumping into Han Kai?s arms. ?I think this one?s lucky!!? Meiling said excitedly, while Han Kai dropped Pierre on the ground. ?In the middle of the day? With lots of screams coming from it?!?? Han Kai asked, starting to walk into the direction of the screaming children. ?IT IS THE APOCALYPSE!? Pierre screamed, hiding under a leaf. ?Uh? no. Just follow me.? Han Kai said. ?But it?s my turn!? Pierre said as Meiling hopped to the ground and Pierre tried to get onto Han Kai?s shoulders. ?Fine?, Han Kai grumbled under his breath as Pierre clung to his head. ?Wait, what?s that?? Meiling pointed to rustling bushes. A cheetah dragging a fat platypus behind her unsheathed her claws as she saw them. ?What do you want?? she asked, narrowing her eyes. ?Leave me out of this!? the platypus yelped, trying desperately to crawl away. ?We want yer money and all yer gold!? Pierre said. ?What?? Han Kai asked, looking at him. ?I thought we were playing pirates?, Pierre shrugged apologetically. ?What?s your name? We?re going to the Jade Palace?, Meiling smiled, holding out her hand to shake. ?Well, I?m going to the Jade Palace, too. I?m Jin, and this is?, she pointed lazily to the platypus, ?Fong.? ?Oh, well, I?m Meiling, this is Han Kai, and that dude is Pierre?, Meiling said. ?Cool. So, what are we waiting for? RACE YA?!? Jin challenged, running with cheetah speed, dragging miserable Fong behind her. ?PLEASE HELP?, Fong mouthed, clinging to a weed, when it only pulled out of the ground.
Master Kainen: Heyyy, maybe I'm not the only light hearted kung fu master!
Travis: The world has been warned.
Master Kainen: Watch it ,Trav.
Travis: Watch it, Dad.
Me: Ummm...*watches as the two begin to growl* ignore them. I hope Lee and Olin will be okay.
?THIS IS THE LIFE!!? Ozzie yelled over the revving of the engine. Master Jin-Hai passed back sunglasses, and he casually flipped them on. ?Ready?? he asked. ?Let?s go!? Nigel piped excitedly. The drop, all cobblestone street, went almost straight down, 50 feet. Suddenly, a crackling sound filed the air. A small cart with tons of lit fireworks sped up and stopped next to them, almost teetering down the slope. ?Cool shades!!? a lynx commented. ?Nice cart. Dare for a race?? Nigel asked. ?You bet?cha!? a raccoon in the cart smiled. ?Our names are Lee and Olin, by the way. What are yours?? the lynx asked. ?I?m Ozzie, he?s Nigel, and that guy?s Master Jin-Hai?, said Ozzie. Lee nodded. ?Ready, set, GO!? Olin yelled as Master Jin-Hai turned the keys in the dune-buggy. BAM! Fireworks exploded and sent Lee and Olin catapulting down. Pigs and sheep screamed and fled out of the way as the two racers barreled down the steep hill. ?Turn here!? Master Jin-Hai yelled as the cobblestone curved. ?WE DON?T HAVE A STEERING WHEEL!!? Lee and Olin screamed as they were flung into a ravine.
@Everyone: I'm kind of at a stand-still with the chapter, so I think I might skip this chapter sequence, and go onto the rest of the story. I might add in Huihuai and Puka, Vinuu, and all the rest (Too lazy to name all of them ) So you might soon see new chapters more often!
Hahaha! Heading straight for a wall? Yeah, that sounds like something I would do if I was in a situation like that. No...that would happen if a friend was pushing a wheelchair. I would probably try to move around and bump into every wall imaginable.
Haha, anyway. Great parts! Can't wait for the next one.
Huihuai, a scarlet red tiger with slashing stripes colored black, was known in the orphanage for a fiery temper and being a hot-head. ?Flame should?ve been his name, or at least Severe Anger Issues? they sometimes whispered about. ?Severe Anger Issues? usually took the cake. But no one dared insult him, or even say his name in his face, or in his presence for good measure. ?Pass the rice?, he grunted, which usually made the animal near the rice flinch and awkwardly glance around, before shakily handing the rice bowl over. A dark, purplish bruise around his eye made him look almost like Zuko in animal form.
After Huihuai sat down at the table, children at the orphanage suddenly took great interest in eating. Iyuki, a severely shy caracal, literally wolfed down his vegetables and fled from his seat, not thinking of putting his plate away. Huihuai?s claws unsheathed, grazing the table for a split second, then he turned his head toward the hall, his slight bangs flying into his eyes. He huffed them away, then picked up his chopsticks and stabbed his Mongolian Beef, picking it up and stuffing it in his mouth. Puka eyed Huihuai testily, and Vinuu flicked his tail back and forth like a stalking housecat. When lunch was over, Puka sat on Jirou, and lifted her feet. ?Sit here, Vinuu!!!? she said, pulling him abruptly down into a spot on the chair. ?Ready, set, HOLD ON!? Jirou hollered as they catapulted out of the dining hall and made a sharp turn, wheeling at high speed down the hall. ?Now?s a good time to SCREEAAAMM!!? Puka flushed out as they barreled straight for a wall.
@Everyone: I am finally going to post the last chapter sequence! One chapter at a time, though.
Chapter 17 Part One
The clanging of a dented brass gong rang around the dorms, proceeding the opening of doors from left to right. A door looked ready to burst, and it finally did when an otter in a wheelchair scooted out of his room, narrowly missing the wall. A jaguarundi slid out of his room, and propped himself against the wall, stiffly blinking his faded eyes. A serval bounded out of her room, and went straight to the jaguarundi, grasping his wrist and leading him toward the otter sitting in the wheelchair, twisting his neck to squint at a claw-marked door. A small shudder rippled through the serval?s body, but she let it pass over. The last door down the dimly lit hall silently opened a crack, letting a small caracal head peek out and glance around. The crew of three had already left, and the caracal trekked after them to the dinner table, steering clear of the ominous door. At the table, food of different origin sat at the table. Fruits, meats, grains, all of it sat in steaming or chilled bowls, surrounded by spares of chairs. ?Smells good?, the jaguarundi commented, feeling for a seat. ?What?re you having, Jirou?? The serval questioned, addressing the otter. ?Don?t rightly know, Puka, how about yourself?? Jirou asked in an accent, replied with ?A cup of tea and a crumpet, my good lad, friendly chap you are?, by Puka. ?I?ll have a ?gator skin and an ostrich omelet, with a side of surf ?n turf?, the jaguarundi chided in, going Australian style. They laughed and sat down. ?Here ya? go, Vinuu?, Puka said as she slid a plate in front of the jaguarundi. He nodded slightly, then started a list of what he wanted to eat. The caracal shyly slipped into the background and took a seat across from them. ?Where?s Huihuai?? Jirou asked, tilting his head towards the hall and the scarred door. ?You usually never see him here, do you?? Puka asked while stuffing her mouth with some type of roll. ?Trick question?, Jirou answered, picking up his fork. ?Speaking of Huihuai?, Vinuu said, suddenly interested in his knife, even though he couldn?t see it. Puka?s ears swiveled, but she couldn?t pick up a sound. ?Are you sure?? she asked. ?3? 2? 1!? Vinuu said as Huihuia strode in and scooted into the nearest seat. The caracal, named Iyuki, twitched a bit, and timidly bent his head down, intrigued in his vegetables.
Ruby: HEY! That's not fair! How come you get to help her and not help me?!
Zenghui; Ruby. Batskee's not old. *snickers* She's just grumpy.
Me: I AM NOT!
Jared: *mutters* Grumpy...
Me: I am not old. I am not grumpy. And I don't need help crossing the street!
It's alright. I've been pretty behind posting chapters as well.
Me: Wow, I really am a slacker. I need to get the next chapters up!
Skye: Batskee, can you help me get my elderly helper kitten-scout badge? I just need to help you cross the street!
Han Kai: I'll get your CPAP and humidifier ready Granny Batskee!
Syrup240 ;D Me: Really, guys, stop calling Batskee old!
Skye: After she makes us milk and cookies!!!
Me: Lies! Lies! I'm not old! I'M NOT OLD!
Silvermist: Oh, I almost forgot! You left this hearing aid at my house yesterday.
Me: It's not mine!
Me: It even has someone else's name on it!
*we both look at it and it says Priya*
Jared: Hahaaha! That old buzzard has to wear a hearing aid?! Hahaha!
Me: *I start sneaking away, hoping everyone will forget our previous conversation*
Ruby: *is right next to me, holding my hand* It's okay grammy. We're almost across the room.
Me: I'm Not OLD!!!
Me: Luckily I'm back!!!
Skye: We were just talking about how old Batskee is.
Han Kai: Ruby might put her in.. *whispers* The Home!
Me: Batskee said she was that old?
Skye: Uhh... yes! yes she did.
Han Kai: She confessed that she drinks prune juice and needs to get around with a walker.
Me: Like I'm buying that.
Han Kai: She can't hear! She's too elderly!
Syrup240 ;D Me: I should probably start writing the next chapters, not talk about Batskee's age...
Ruby: Oh, lucky! Batskee barely ever leaves us alone. She's either here or leaves and takes us with her!
Master Kainen: Yeah. She's such a downer.
Me: Hey! I'm right here!
Ruby: Quiet, Batskee! Or we'll put you in The Home!
Me: I'm Not OLD!
Master Kainen: Ah yes...I see. *whispers* Denial.
Me: I'm NOT OLD!
Ruby: It seems someone's cranky because she didn't get her prune juice. Well shaken prune juice if I might add.
Ruby: *hands me some prune juice*
Me: *I slap it out of her paw* I'm not old!
Skye: Syrup is going to be pretty busy this week, so I'll have to be in charge of this typin' gig!
Han Kai: You mean 'We'll have to be in charge of this typin' gig' .
Skye: Yeah, whatever. Batskee, you do sound like an elderly.
Jin: Now all ya' need to do is drink prune juice!
Lee: Don't forget to shake when you pour your juice! Everything is heavy for elders!
*No one sane enough to scold them for not being nice to elders*
Skye: Man, I enjoy it without Syrup here!
Han Kai: We should buy a computer of our own when she gets back!
Skye: You mean, *gulp* Get a job?
Han Kai: Heck to the no!
Jin: How will we get money?
Lee: Be robbers!
Skye & Han Kai
Skye: What's the point of signing 'Syrup' when she's not here?
Han Kai: CHANGE THAT! IT SHOULD BE Han Kai & Skye!!!!!!
I shall keep your stories on the boards as best I can, my friend!
Silvermist: *elbows me* Don't forget to mention us!
Me: *rubs stomach* Ow. That really hurt.
Ruby: *elbows my back* Mention us!
Me: Ow! My back!
Silvermist: You sound like an elderly person.
Me: Oh just be quiet. Ow...anyways, they'll keep it up for you as well.
Ruby & Silvermist: *smiling happily and waving*
Me: Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to collapse on the floor now. *collapses on floor*
Zenghui: Batskee! We have to help her!
Ruby & Silvermist: Not it!
AARRGGGHHH!! SO REALLY SORRY THAT I HAVEN'T BEEN ON HERE IN EONS!!!!! I have been really busy and without Internet FOREVAH!!!! I am also really sorry that I haven't updated in a few WEEKS!!! I am going to be off of here for a while longer now (I FEEL SO GUILTY!!) so please keep my stories up on the boards (if there are any left!)
Skye: We'll check up on the stories often for you, Syrup!
Han Kai: Yeah! While you're gone on vacation, we can post for you!
Me: *thinking* Oh boy...
Jin: tell me about it, Syrup.
Lee: I love it when you say that!
Jin: I know karate!
Lee: Me too! Karate pals!!! :D
Jin: _ _
incase you have no idea who Jin and Lee are, (I shouldn't be doing this, these chapters go to the story) then read the Everglades!!!!
Don't worry, I've kinda been off and on lately. I've just been busy. Also I've been trying to beat this one game I got.
Wait...there's a marathon of those movies? Cool! I don't believe I've ever seen Indiana Jones...I know how it goes though. And the most famous scene when the giant boulder rolls their way and their running from it.
Me: Sorry I haven't posted in a while!!! ARGH! It is taking me forever to do the last chapter sequence! Yes, you heard right. LAST! Wooh! Then I'll be home-free, and not have to work with any more new characters! Thanks for motivating me! I THINK I'LL FINISH THOSE CHAPTERS NOW! (Ice-cream truck pulls up.) Nevermind! *runs outside in pajamas and in the rain without shoes*
Yeah, Leo isn't the brightest k (Yeah, I have a short-term memory, too.) I guess I should start writing the last of the chapters. But, wait! All the Lord of The Rings, Harry Potters, Night of The Museums, Kung Fu Pandas, and Indiana Jones are playing in a marathon! A NERD'S DREAM COME TRUE! *skips to TV*
I love dropping a whole bunch of chapters. It really helps when you have something you need to do later in the week.
Anyway, awesome parts! Sounds like Leo better be careful whenever he tries to walk of one of those earth blocks...or whatever it was called. (Yes, I forgot already.)
I can't wait to see what happens next!
