@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!!!
@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!
Leo took a step off of the block of earth, and fell flat on his face. ?OUCH!? He cried out angrily. ?I tried to warn him!? Qiao said, shrugging. ?What does it say?? asked Chao as the three of them, excluding a very bruised Leo, ignored their leopard friend and turned to the letter. ?It says we have all been invited to the Jade Palace in the Valley of Peace. We get to train there!? Maylin chirped excitedly. ?Coolio?, Leo mumbled weakly, lifting his face off the ground to reveal a very muddy head. ?I have a map we could use to get there?, Chao said. ?Then what are we waiting for?? asked Qiao, who was already running to Chao?s room to get the map.
Later on that day, the four elemental animals took off on a journey to the Jade Palace.
?I still don?t believe you?, Maylin disagreed, turning her nose up. ?See you on the flip side, then?, Chao said as he propelled with fire to the tree. ?Later!? Qiao called as she made a bridge of earth to walk across. ?Bye!!!? Leo waved his hand in the air, then left on his swirling orb of wind. ?I guess it could be cool?, Maylin muttered to herself as she walked over to see what the shiny object was. ?Almost there!? Leo said as he lifted his arm higher, balancing unsteadily on the ball of air. ?Be careful!? Qiao said. ?Why don?t we just burn the tree down?? asked Chao, turning to his tiger friend. ?I dunno?, Qiao shrugged, keeping her eyes on the shiny object Leo was reaching for. ?Here!? Maylin said as she formed a ?rope? of water and grabbed the shiny thing just before Leo was about to grab it. ?AAAHH!? Leo screamed, falling off of his air-ball. ?Got?cha!? Qiao said as she formed a block of earth to catch Leo. He hit the ground with a loud thud. ?I don?t think rock was the best idea...? Leo muttered, feeling woozy. While Leo passed out on the ground, the three friends looked at the shiny thing. ?It?s a scroll?, Chao said. ?Cool!? Qiao said as Maylin reached to open it. A letter slid out. ?Let me read it!? Leo said, regaining his strength. ?Don?t walk off the-? Qiao tried to warn, but it was too late.
?You weren?t mad?? the jaguar asked, perched cautiously on a ball of swirling air. ?Nope!? the wolf spluttered, holding his chest, still laughing his head off. ?Why I oughtta?, the fox started, making a tornado of water around herself. ?Do this?? The white tiger asked, making the earth pin the tawny wolf down. He still yelped with laughter, his eyes watering slightly. ?Seriously, guys, I didn?t mean it. Let me go, Qiao! (Qwih-ay-oh.)? The wolf protested, finally stopping his laughter. ?If ya? say so, Chao?, the bengal tiger said, stomping to release the wrist and ankle cuffs. ?Be lucky you got off so easy?, the white fox stated. ?It was just a joke, Maylin! You believe me, right, Leo?? Chao looked up at the golden feline with black spots. ?I plea the fifth!?!?!? The jaguar said. ?Was that a question, or an answer?? Chao asked, a confused look on his face. Maylin shrugged. Thy all turned to Qiao. ?Why are you all looking at me?? Qiao asked, holding her palms out in front of her in defense. ?I wasn?t! I was looking at that tree!!!? Leo said, pointing to a very insignificant tree, it?s blossoms swaying in the breeze. ?Okay then...? Chao said, taking a few steps back from Leo. ?Wait, guys! There?s something shiny caught in the branches!? Leo said, narrowing his eyes. ?Let me guess. A nickel?? Maylin asked, not amused. ?Nah, it looks golden, red, and green?, Qiao said, forming a stool of earth straight up to where Leo was perched. ?Let me up there!? Chao said, using his fire as a propeller up to where Qiao was sitting. ?Hey, move over before I fall!? Chao said and the white feline brought up more earth for the wolf to land on. ?Let?s go get it!? chirped Leo.
The jaguar sprinted ahead of the others, calling out, ?Catch me if ya? c- OOF!?, getting cut off as he tripped over an untied lace and went flying into a tree. The others laughed and raced ahead of each other. The wolf was in the lead, gaining speed. Wolves are marathon-runners, if you didn?t know. The arctic fox silently sped up behind, leaving the white tiger in third place. The arctic fox crouched low to the ground, and then made a flying leap, landing in front of the wolf, who narrowed his eyes in challenge. The bengal tiger moved her arms in a weird sort of way, and thrust her fists out. The ground underneath the wolf and fox rose up to form a wave, tilting them off balance as the tiger ran ahead. The jaguar formed a ball of air with his hands, and sat on it, whisking himself away ahead of the others. ?CAN?T CATCH ME NOW!? He teased, making a raspberry. The wolf?s eyes glowed, and he formed balls of fire where his fists should be. ?Uh-oh. RUN!? the jaguar yelled as the white fox and tiger fled from their short-tempered friend. The fox tried to put the fire out with water, but that just made the wolf angrier. He was now covered in fire, and he ran quickly ahead of his friends, who where hiding in a tree. He crossed the finish line, a neat line of rounded pebbles, then fell onto the ground, laughing. ?You should?ve seen your faces!? He howled with laughter, his tail banging the ground.
@Batskee: I know, what a chapter-dump on my part. I usually only post once every two days or something, but I felt so bored with nothing to do, I introduced about all of the new characters and their chapter sequences, but there are still two more to go!
@Everyone: I still can't believe all of those... erhm.... 15 chapters loaded up!!!! That's singing Eevee amazing!! I will try to post the character profiles soon. Here goes my second-to-last character chapter sequence!!!! It?s pretty much based on Avatar.
Chapter 16 Part One
Four animals, each different and very unique, happily chatted with each other. They each had on differently decorated outfits. One was a sandy-tan wolf with golden eyes, wearing a very stealthy looking outfit. It looked like a cross between a ninja, jedi, military boot-camp, and lots of other cool things. It was black, with silver and dark red splotches. There was also a thick brown belt with silver studs, and throwing stars and a huge machete in it. The next one was a snow-white fox, who looked very charming. She had lilac eyes, and long eyelashes. She was wearing a metallic light blue vest with silver flowers patterns on it, a silver Shaolin waist wrap, a silver sash, and matching blue pants. She was also wearing brown sandals. The next one was a jaguar with blue eyes. (Jaguars look very much like cheetahs, but bigger.) He was wearing a boy?s robe that was orange with golden trim, and it had all sorts of paint splatters over it. Silver, green, blue, purple, you name it. He was wearing red and yellow sneakers. The last animal was a white bengal tiger with green eyes. She had on a loose brown top and green pants, along with a black sash and iron knee pads and shoulder pads, all studded with silver balls. A gong rang in the distance, and they all rushed away to a courtyard.
Awesome! At first when I saw all the chapters I kind of wondered how long I wasn't on the site. I thought I had only missed one day, but then I realized they were pretty much all posted on the same day.
Now, besides my odd moment and long paragraph, awesome story! Sounds like Sun has some serious issues with being up high...even though he lives at the top of a rain forest.
Me: Be expecting new chapters soon!!!
?: And new characters, like meh!
??: And me!!!
Han Kai: AND ME!!!
Me: They already know who you are.
Pierre: They don't know why I am when I dress up as Loki!!!
Us all: ....
Me: So, anyway, I think they should add epicer as a word to the dictionary!
Meiling: Tell it to the presses, yo!
Pierre: Yeah, homies!
Han Kai: *wearing hat backwards and Justin-Beiber hair* 'Sup?
Me: Get off the hipster websites and run on those treadmills to power my electricity!!
All, except me: *Running on treadmills, sweating*
Me: Run faster, Pierre!!!
Pierre: *red face and sweat dripping into cups* I'M TRYING!!
