Sorry for the long wait, everyone! This episode is kinda a “filler” episode, meaning that there’s not much action. Sorry about that!
“Okay,” said Sticky Clown, as he grabbed my wallet, got the 500 credits out and threw the wallet itself on the floor. How rude.
He ticked me off a bit when he threw my wallet on the floor, but then he added insult to injury and threw the diamond sword and potion on the floor. Luckily the potion bottle didn’t break.
I was eager to get out of Sticky Clown’s shop and to get away from his rudeness towards me, so Ieft and everyone else followed suit.
As soon as we got out of the shop, Spotted Dragon grabbed the bottle from me and examined it.
“What was that for?” I asked.
“What if Sticky Clown ripped us off again?” she asked. “What if this is poison or something? We should analyze it to see what it is.”
“Oh, come on!” Silver Wolf said. “That’ll take too long! Sticky Clown would never deliberately try to poison anybody!”
“You can never be too sure,” Spotted Dragon replied.
I’m pretty impatient, but right then I did something really rash I probably shouldn’t have done.
I took the bottle back from Spotted Dragon and said, “There’s a faster way to find out.”
I drank half the bottle. Everyone stared at me.
Well, it sure wasn’t poison. I didn’t die. But how can I describe the taste?
There was a bit of a melony flavor and a hint of a metallic taste. Everyone continued to stare at me.
Spotted Dragon started to give me a “science talk.” She kept rambling on about how dangerous it was for poptropicans to drink unknown liquids and blah blah blah. I’m pretty sure I fazed out because I don’t remember a word she said.
“Are you okay?” Slippery Icicle asked, waving her hand over my face.
“Huh…?” I said, suddenly noticing her.Then I realized that all my cuts and bruises were gone. They had just… vanished.
“Your cuts and bruises are gone!” said Spotted Dragon. She was clearly very fascinated. I was amazed, but then I remembered Fearless Fox.
“Come on, let’s go.” I said, turning to the blimp.
“Where are we going?” Silver Wolf asked. I paused.
“We’re going to save a fallen friend!” I replied and leaped up the rope of the blimp. Everyone else quickly followed.
I steered the blimp to Steamworks Island. As soon as we got there. I jumped out and ran towards OWL’s secret hideout, where Fearless Fox was. I used my diamond sword and broke down the door.
“Wow!” I exclaimed, “This sword really is strong!” I navigated my way to the bottom, clutching the bottle as if it was my life. I spotted Fearless Fox and ran over to him.
“Well… here it goes,” I said as I opened Fearless Fox’s mouth and poured the potion down his throat.
Nothing happened. A tear ran down my cheek.
Suddenly, bubbles flew up from his body and the blood on his mouth faded away, The wound on his stomach vanished. The dirt and scratches on his face peeled away, and before we knew it, all his wounds were gone.
We continued to stare and wait. To my shock, he opened his eyes. “Huh…?” he mumbled, looking around, “What…”
Needless to say, we were all mind blown. It worked! IT ACTUALLY WORKED!
“Quit looking at me like that! It’s freaking me out!” he said as he jumped up.
“Y-y-you’re alive!” I screamed as tears of joy raced down my cheeks.
“DUH, why wouldn’t I be?” said Fearless Fox, rolling his eyes.
When no one said anything and everyone seemed confused, he himself became puzzled.
“Wait…what happened?” he asked as he turned around and looked at us, waiting for an explanation.
“It’s a very long story,” Slippery Icicle said.
“I have an idea!” Spotted Dragon said. “Let’s go to Early Poptropica! One of my friends runs a restaurant there called the Soda Pop Shop. We can talk over cherry sodas!”
“I like cherry sodas,” I said, licking my chops.
“I do too,” said Fearless Fox. “I’d love an explanation over a cherry soda!”
