Orange Shell here, and welcome to the first edition of Super Story Wednesdays! *audience claps in background* Oh, thank you. Thank you. *more clapping* Oh, well, that’s really unnecessary. Now, time for the story! Note: it might not be that good, but I’m trying to get the series started well. None of the characters in this story except me are real, except the possible chance of a villain in this story. Well, at least I think so. Its really not that good, but if you liked it, ok! More exciting stories should be on the way.
One hot summer day, me and my best friend, Yellow Banana, were hanging out at the new carnival at Monster Carnival island. Yellow Banana asked me, “Why do they call it Monster Carnival Island when there are no monsters? It’s just strange.”
“I don’t know, and that kinda freaks me out,” I said.
“Yeah. I suddenly get the feeling I’m being watched. Maybe we should go.”
I thought about it and decided that maybe it’s not so bad. My mind confirmed this. Suddenly, I realized that there was an ice cream shop just around the corner. I knew that was Banana’s favorite type of restaurant. “Hey Banana, there’s an ice cream shop just around the corner. Want to get some ice cream?”
“Umm, YEAH! I am SO getting a Banana Split!” she said.
“Well, we might not be going after all, because the line is WAY backed up.”
“Yeah, you’re right. Maybe we should go ride on that AWESOME-looking Ferris wheel.”
I though that probably wasn’t the best thing to do, because it looked pretty creepy, but Banana was already dragging me off in that direction. The line was very short, but it seemed to take forever. Maybe that was just because I was so afraid about what might happen. As we got on, it started spinning. When it started spinning, everything started to go black. “I don’t think this is part of the ride!” I yelled at Banana.
She yelled back, “Ya think?”
“Wait,” I yelled. “Did you set me up for this?”
“Yes.” Now was it just me, or at this point, did Banana start floating in the air? “I set you up. Because I am the greatest Poptropica villain of all time! And you must know who I am.”
“Um,” I said. “Maybe Black Widow?”
“Nope,” she said.
“Dr. Hare, Binary Bard, Captain Crawfish?”
“I’m not any of those.”
“The Booted Bandit?”
“Hmm, let’s see here. Who’s the villain from Monster Carnival island? Well, hold on, let me remember. Ok, so its Ringmaster something. Ringmaster Raven! That’s it! You’re Ringmaster Raven! How did I not figure that out? It was so obvious! But I thought Ringmaster Raven was a boy.”
“Well, I disguised myself as your best friend to destroy you. I hid her from you so that I would become the most powerful villain in all of Poptropica! Wahhaahhaahhaaa!”
Ringmaster Raven transformed into his normal self with one wave of a hand. I felt around my body, looking for a weapon-anything, really- and remembered my dagger in my pocket. I pulled it out, poised to attack. “Orange Shell. Put the weapon down, you don’t really need it. I am going to win anyway.”
“Not if I can help it,” I said. I stretched out my arm with the dagger in it, like I was throwing a javelin. It’s lucky that I had plenty of practice from the Poptropilis Games, because if I hadn’t, I would have been dead meat. But, I threw the knife directly at Ringmaster Raven’s shoulder. He cried out in pain, and I like to say that it was over then and there. But it wasn’t.
Ringmaster Raven said, ” Let me go. If you do, I will give you your friend back. She’s over there. Now you happy?”
I ran over to the real Banana. She was tied up to a chair, with a gag in her mouth. I untied the knots and took the gag in her mouth out. I asked her, “Do you have any weapons on you?”
“Well, just this sword and a small pocket knife. Its not much,” the real Banana said.
“But it’s just enough. Here, hand me the sword.”
She gave me the sword, and I walked into battle saying, ” I think I can beat you, Ringmaster Raven. I have beaten the most ruthless villains of Poptropica, Black Widow, Captain Crawfish, Dr. Hare, and Binary Bard, and lived to tell the tale. I’m positive you will be no problem for me.”
“I am much more powerful than you, popling.”
Just as he attacked me, I threw the sword at his head, and…….
to be continued……
Sorry about the ending, guys. But I did what had to be done. You knew it was coming.
If you want to find out what happened to me and Banana, tune in next week for Super Story Wednesdays! And I didn’t mean for it to be this late.
