Well, gotta make this quick... but... here's the crappy actioned weirded chapter nine.

Chapter 9: Losing Sight of You
“Ugh, do we really have to join hands?” “Shut your pie hole, Kevin! We have to do this!” “All I care about is sleep…” “But all I want is to just see Ash!”
“WAIT!” Amanda called out as everybody spoke immaturely. “Can you all just be QUIET for one second in your lives?” This caused everybody to settle down and keep his or her eyes on only her. “Look, we might know that this dude is in the North Pole. But see that’s the thing… all we know is that he’s somewhere, right?”
“True.” Shade chimed in. “So, how do you think we should be able to find her? It’s not like we want to take forever in our lives just to find them, right?”
“Exactly.” She responded. “It would just be a waste of our time. So… there has to be some other way.”
“Ummm… I can help.” Madisen said as she walked inside the first level with the group. Everyone immediately turned his or her attention to her. “I might not have much of a thought with fighting… but I can help you guys make your lives easier.”
“Go on…” Kevin nodded.
“See, I’m a witch… right?” She said. “You’re a witch?” Al spoke unthinkingly. “… As I was saying, I have certain powers most of you dragons DON’T have. I have something called a ‘magic mirror’. It can help you guys spot where the person you wish to find is.” “Ohhh…” Everybody nodded. “So, is it alright with you if you help us?” Shade asked. Madisen remarked politely. “Of course…” She pulled it out and held it so everyone could see. “You guys are trying to find Ash, right?” She waited for a nod, which came from Al not long afterwards. “Alright. Let’s see where she is.” Everyone leaned over so they could have a better view on what was going on with the mirror she had.
“I know.” Shade remarked. “But who IS that dude?” He pointed at a black shadowy figure that the two were attempting to defeat. “I’m guess that that’s the Dark guy that took Ash.” Kevin said. “Kind of ironic how he’s dark… and his name is Dark. How perfectly uncanny.” “Who are those guys?” Amanda pointed as the view of the scene turned to three elf-like children. “Those are the elves—Sherlyn, Kimper, and Tinker—that we ran into here then helped find Jake in NYC.” Florence replied. “Ohhh… that explains.” She said, continuing to look over like everyone else was doing.
Everyone took a moment to watch over Ash and Jake still trying to fight, all exchanging very nervous, worried glances at one another.
“You freak!” Ash shouted at the monstrous Dark, who still wasn’t even close to being halfway harmed with damage. “Ash, I think we need some help.” Jake said, placing his hands on his knees and bending down a little after being exhausted. “You think?” “Hey, I’m not the one who said, ‘We can take him on our own!’.” “That was what I thought until we started battling!”
“Gah! We have to help her!” Al exclaimed after everyone started listening over at the conversation that was taking place there. “Well then, we better not stand here any longer.” Shade said. “Less talk, more action!” “Yeah!” Everyone was determined.
“Thanks for the big help, Madisen.” Florence said in behalf of everyone. “We would be wondering here all day if you hadn’t have come in!” “Hey! No problem at all!” She said courteously. “I’ll always be here to help if you guys need it.” Madisen wished good luck to everyone. “If you ever need some back up, go ahead and call me and everybody else. We’ll be there as soon as we can!” “Thanks!” “You’re the best!” Madisen grinned proudly then waved good-bye and walked off.
“So, anyway… should we plan anything out, first of all?” Flo brought up. “Well, there’s always such a thing called improvisation right?” Kevin said. “True…” “So I guess this means we’ll need this?” Shade said holding out a few amount of magic dust stuff in his hand. “Mmhmm.” “Everyone ready?”
“Give it up! You can’t win!” called out Dark. Ash was on the verge of falling over and blacking out, but she wouldn’t give up that easily. “Try me!” “Ash!” Al called out, running over to his girlfriend. She turned around, ran over to him, and gave him a big hug. “I was so worried about you!” “Aww…” “Isn’t THAT sweet?” “Why don’t you just shut up?” Ash turned around and looked over at him coldly.
From afar, both a ball of ice and fire shot from a distant area and made a direct hit for him. This time, it caused some major damage. It had come from Shade and Kevin, who were in their dragon forms attempting to begin the ‘fair’ battle.
“Take that!” Shade yelled, making a perfect land on the ground. “Looks like you brought your friends, did you?” The villain laughed sinisterly. “But we’re here to kick your butt!” Florence called out in a readied, battle stance. “Let’s see if you can take on more than just ME then!” With a simple wave with his hand, he made numerous duplicates of himself; just as he did when he had kidnapped Ash. They all surrounded everyone- Shade, Florence, Al, Ash, Jake, Amanda, Kevin, and Cat. Everybody stepped back slowly, a little taken aback by what had just taken place.
“What is that?” Florence asked, as she stood close by Shade. “Whatever it is, it sure doesn’t look good.” He just replied as they all readied themselves in a combat position. “But let’s give this a shot!” “Right behind ya then, Shade!” She said.
Everyone separated whilst the numbers of shadows had done as well; they each attacked one duplicate of Dark. He, himself, just sat back and watched as everybody attempted to take each one down. Kevin and Shade basically used their ice powers to try and take them down. But Shade wanted to be ‘unique’ a few times and try a few tricks of his own. Florence had attempted to do a few martial arts but found it a little hard to do with shadowy figures. Ash and Al worked together to use their skillful alchemy, never leaving each other’s sides. Amanda had used little ploys that were mainly different from everyone else.
A few times, Dark had watched the way everybody fought together. He noticed that people were more likely to accomplish more if they were in unison in a group of ‘couples and lovers’. After a few more battles and attacks, he had taken note which people stayed by each other- Shade and Florence, Ash and Al, Kevin and Amanda; while Jake either joined in to join a threesome or endeavored to complete this all on his own. Sometimes he would even take along with Cat, who was doing the same fighting techniques as him.
Subsequent to this last scene, Dark had seemed to be taking enough mental notes to know about everyone’s battle styles. When he had seemed to be finished, he waved his hand around again while the seemingly indestructible replacements had formed to make him immense once again. The group looked up to see his original form, readying themselves once again to fight as one. They had given themselves a few times to plan out a battle that was presumably intractable to beat.
Florence volunteered willingly to be the so-called distraction so that everyone could have a chance to make him try and focus on her instead of everybody else like he was apparently doing a while ago.
“Hey tall, dark, and stupid!” She called out from below. “You think you could catch me?” This angered him, like they had planned it to be. But more importantly, it caused him to try and attack her.
“What’s wrong? Can’t you attack a girl?” Flo flipped a few times so that she would miss the attacks he was trying to shoot out at her; which was doing well. “Come on, you’re better than that!” She barrel rolled underneath him, which made him turn around. “You’re going a good job!” Kevin called out. “I know!” She yelled at him right back.
“Hey Flo!” Shade said as he appeared next to her. “I got your back!” “And I got your’s!” “Let’s end this!”
Florence still tried to be funny and distract him with a little bit of backflips and twists, which made him watch with a bit of impressiveness. Shade took the plan as a complete success so far, mixing both regular dragon powers with ice. It had him ‘beat’ a few times, but they both never gave up. Cat came in as soon as this was going real well. Shade let them both team up together since they had almost the same skills. They both took off in unanimity then they stopped while Cat stood in front. Flo was behind her, who helped her up so that her feet were placed on top of her hands- she was strong enough to hold her up.
“Ready?” Florence said.
“Ready when you are!” Cat replied.
“Got it!” She said, using all her strength to push Cat up into the air. She had performed a spin in the air and had just enough time to transform to her dragon form.
Cat had soon taken wing and took off to him, helping out Shade with the ‘attacking’ part. Florence still rolled around to make him confused but felt something tugging her on the leg. “AH! Let go of me!”
Shade quickly looked over after hearing her call out. Flo was swiftly swept off her feet and was thrown off by Dark. “Flo!” He called out, upsettingly looking over across his view.
“AHHHHH!” Florence was being hurled towards one of the many chunks and glaciers of ice that were nearby. Luckily, she didn’t land so harshly on the ground as she got to her feet quickly. She shook her head a little then ran back over. “HEY! You’re going to pay for that—AH! I said let go of me!” She was gripped tightly by his free hand; the other was being used to try and take down Shade and Cat (who were still working together). Shade worriedly looked over and abruptly stopped. Kevin looked over to see his sudden strike of concern and took over, helping out with Cat this time.
“Let go of her!” He paused and looked up at him irritably. “Didn’t you hear me? I said LET GO OF HER.” Shade shouted at him, starting to turn crazed and angry by the second.
“Oh, you say you want her back, do you?” He looked over at him, who was still tightly gripping on to Florence. She tried to free herself with all might, all the while that she was thinking about not considering about the little bit of energy she had left. “Is that so?”
“Are you deaf or something?” Shade was still annoyed. “Don’t make me come up there and slap you upside your head!”
“Wow…” Jake looked over at slightly crazed Shade. “Craaazy.”
“Shut up, Jake!” He yelled back. Jake’s reaction was astonished, never ever seeing this kind of attitude from him. Shade just ignored it and looked back at Dark. “Now do what I told you to do!” Dark sure did what he was told, but he had ruthlessly dropped Florence to the ground. She slightly struggled to get to her feet but immediately faced her direction at Shade.
“Shade!” She called out, running over to him. Before she could reach him, she was quickly grasped by something that pulled her back. Florence fell to the ground, but was still grabbed by one of her arms when she had gotten up. “Ah! Let me go! Stop it!”
“Florence!” Shade said, reaching out to her. He was a little too late, though. Apparently, one of Dark’s duplicates had taken Florence and held her back from Shade. At this moment, he realized how Shade meant a lot to her- and how he had meant a lot to Flo. He knew at this time that love was the bond that was inseparable… but more importantly something that could break the heart of one and ruin their spirit if anything bad were to happen. He seemed to see that Florence and Shade were a very good example for this scene. “What do you want from her?”
“Oh, nothing really.” He just replied in a very awkward tone. “And you think you could take me down, can you?”
“AH!” This time, Shade was being thrown at the same place Florence ended up.
“Take her away.” He had commanded his duplicate to do so and did what he was told. Florence looked back at Shade (who was still in the distance) until everything suddenly blacked out.
Meanwhile, Shade was apparently hurled across to a nearby cavern but didn’t let the force throw him back that far. He used his wings to fly back over and not let himself descend south any further. Shade then landed and looked around for Florence. “Flo?” “If you’re looking for her, she’s gone.” He heard Dark mention, looking up. “What’s wrong with you?” Shade exclaimed.
“OW!” Kevin and Cat couldn’t hold up Dark any longer. They both reverted back to human and just sat on the ground in exhaustion. “SHADE! A little help here?”
Ash eventually was just tired out from the previous battle and couldn’t hold herself up anymore. Al just stayed while Amanda ran over to help them out. She knew she was alone… that is, if you don’t count crazed Shade. He seemed to be ignoring a lot of people at the moment.
“Do you realize how much I HATE YOU?” Shade called out, attempting to take the enemy down with powers his friends didn’t even know that he had.
“Shade! Stop it!” Kevin shouted at him. “You’re going to make him even more mad!” “I’ll do what I want.” He replied coldly. “You still don’t know what you’re getting yourself into!” “I know what I’m doing—AHH!”
“I told you it wouldn’t work.” Kevin muttered when Shade was knocked down to the ground. Shade just ignored that last remark and was about to get up until he was interrupted by a few coughs. “Ugh, what is this stuff?” He used his hand to try and blow away the smoke that started surrounding him and everybody else. But he was actually smart enough to manage to escape from it while everybody decided to be exposed in it. Nobody realized that everything started to black out. Shade was close to getting away until he felt himself being pulled back then everything went blank for some reason.
“Ugh… what happened?” “Shade? Is that you?” “Erh… Amanda?” “Hi! I’m Al!” “Uhhh…”
Amanda got up from where she was and converted to dragon form, blowing a bit of fire so that it was easier to see from how dark it was. Shade also got to his feet and looked around their tight, small room that was alike to something medieval and whatnot. They were trapped in a dungeon-like place where there were metal bars blocking their escape route.
“Wow, it kind reminds you of some sort of castle, does it?” Al said.
“I guess.” Amanda remarked, looking over at the quiet Shade. “Erh… you okay?”
“Gee… I just lost my girlfriend, I’m stuck inside a stupid cage, and I’m depressed.” Shade replied. “Do you think I’m okay?” “Jeez Shade.” She said. “You don’t have to be so tense.” “I’m not tense.” He said. “I’m just… worried. And… well…”
Amanda sighed. “Is this about Florence?” Shade made a short glare. “Right… bad question.” Shade looked down. “Well… it’s not just that… So, sure, Florence does mean that much to me. But what really bothers me the most is how regretful I feel about when I hurt her intentionally or better yet, make her feel bad.”
“Come on, Shade. You’re not that kind of person who would do that.” “Oh yeah? What about the time when were back in New York and we were both mortal enemies; when Flo and me were like… Huntslass and Freezy? Huh?” “Shade. First of all, that thing wasn’t deliberate. You guys are legit, a perfectly good couple. It was the force between love and hate that you guys didn’t know about. It’s not like you both meant to hurt each other…” “Yes it is!” He exclaimed solemnly. “You just don’t understand…” “But I just said it…” “I said it’s my fault!”
Amanda fell silent but quickly understood. “So… anyway, what else happens to make you feel so regretful?” Shade looked down. “Well… there was also this one time when my sister got kidnapped by Huntsdad… and I was so crazed… that… I just didn’t care about her one bit.” “You had every right to be angry. It’s your sister, Shade. Of course you’ll be worried.” “But Florence is my girlfriend! It’s not my right to be mad and not care about her.” “Sometimes anger gets the best of us, you know?” “It’s still my fault.” “Shade… don’t you understand?” “I SAID my fault!” Shade calmed down and sighed after realizing how upset he was starting to feel.
Amanda understandingly nodded, but not to agree with his remark. “You see what Dark is trying to do with you, Shade?” He slowly looked over at her. “He’s been trying to keep your emotions inside so that everything builds up and turns into crazed rage. Basically, he’s trying to break your heart to understand what anger supposedly means.” Shade sat there, confused. “Uhhh…”
“It’s a long story.” She explained. “See, I got up before you and Al did. Only it really wasn’t as dark as it’s like right now. Anyway, Dark was just getting to the point when he trapped everybody else in the cage across from us, right? Well…”
“Wait… you’re saying Florence and the rest are just… across from us?” Shade interrupted. “Yeah but anyway.” “Amanda! Do you know what this means?” “Erh… we can get out of here?” “Exactly!” “But Shade! I’m not done with the…” She stopped but realized Shade just struggled to get out the cage when it zapped his finger with a small electric blast. “… Story.”
“Riiiight…” He said. “Go on?”
Florence had overheard everything coming from the other side, sighing after hearing every word Shade told Amanda. It sounded as if they were both talking too loud. “Gosh… I never knew that he cared that much.”
Ash slid over, trying not to wake the two other people who were still, apparently, unconscious. “Well duh, Flo… of course he cares. Heck, Al is always crazed when I go leave to go to the girl’s bathroom for five minutes.” This made Flo giggle a little, but her smile soon dropped. “Well… you know… it’s not just that… but… now I realize that maybe I have some regrets too.” “Ugh, didn’t you hear any of the words that Amanda said? Pay attention to what he’s trying to do to everyone. He’s been trying to ruin everybody’s hearts to find what really hurts the most. She’s not the only one who knows this—I do too.”
“I guess so.” Flo said, who finished fidgeting with her fingers. “By the way… I got something obvious to throw out at you.” Ash said. “What?” “Shade’s just across from you DARN IT!” “… Oh yeah.”
Florence got up where she sat, feeling how uncomfortable it had been after being out for quite a while. She peeped her head so that she could slightly see through the metal bars. “Shade? A-Are you there?”
Shade jumped up slightly from where he sat, after hearing a familiar voice calling for his name. “Florence?” “Shade!” She called out. After hearing this, Shade didn’t feel as bad as he was earlier. Instead, he was actually slightly overjoyed to hear her nearby. “Are you okay?” “Yeah!” “I’m so glad you’re here!” “If only I could reach you, I would give you the biggest hug ever!”
“Aww.” Al said. “Ain’t that sweet.” He looked over at where Ash was. “AH! Ash! HIII!” “Hi Al! You miss me?” She grinned. “You bet I did!”
“Wow, so much reuniting in an awkward, ironic time.” Amanda muttered with a soft giggle as she noticed that Kevin was at a far corner. “Let’s hope this doesn’t turn any MORE awkward.”

Chapter 10: Look Out!
Back in DISOM, the three girls sat in a circle in their dorm, starting to worry because of how long they seemed to be taking.
“Gee… don’t you think we should go up there and help them?” Kay wondered after the three girls had finished their general conversation.
“Yeah,” Leah said, “I expected them to be back by now—that is, if they ever defeated that guy.”
“Come on, guys, don’t be worry-warts. They probably did. I mean he’s totally outnumbered! How could he possibly lose?” Madisen brought up. “Besides, if they needed back-up, don’t you think they should’ve called by now?”
“That, I don’t know,” Kay inquired. “But don’t you think that this is a little suspicious? You said Ash and Jake were fighting alone; he’s still outnumbered but they were both still struggling.”
“And that brings that up to a good point.” Leah agreed. “If you said he was outnumbered, did you ever take the time to think that maybe that guy is stronger that you anticipate?”
Madisen thought for a moment. “I guess that is a little freaky.” “Exactly,” said the other two. “So how about we get over there?” questioned Kay. “I guess so.” Leah said. “Well, I’ll go take a look and see what’s going on.” Madisen picked up her magic mirror again. Leah and Kay leaned over so they could see what was going on was well. In their view was everybody trapped in the same place that they were. The thing that they noticed first was Shade talking to Florence from a distance along with Al banging his head on the wall crying “Ash!!” while his girlfriend stood on the other cage rolling her eyes at the over-worrying boy.
“Oooh… that doesn’t look too good.” Leah muttered, being the first to get up. “I think they really need our help.” “AH! Wait!” Kay said. “How are we going to get there again?”
“Uhh…” Leah said, turning to Madisen. “You got the power to transport from one place to another?” “… Yeah.” Madisen said, her voice showing something obvious being thrown out at the other person. “I can get us there.”
“But wait. You saw them trapped!” Kay said. “Don’t you think we’d be pretty outmatched? Sure he’ll be totally outnumbered, but if he was able to trap everybody… then… he could probably get us too!” “Kay, you saw our friends; they need our help.” Leah said. “And you know what they say—help out others before thinking of yourself.” “Ummm… I’ll pretend I got that.” Kay mumbled. “But yeah, I guess that’s true.”
“You guys ready?” Madisen made sure. Leah and Kay nodded nervously. “Okay… here goes everything!” “I say we throw coffee at him!” “… Riiiight…” “I don’t think caffeine is the answer there, Kay.” “I know. But it’d be cool… right?”
Jake found himself waking up, rubbing his eyes then stopping because he still felt groggy. “What was that… about?” He found himself in a very big room where a lot of beeping and very awkward noises could be heard. Jake assumed that he was in some sort of computer room and seeing things he didn’t even know existed. “Hey, what’s this?” Jake looked over at a chart or graph that had many complicated connections and words. “The… functions… of… emotions.” He read slowly. “The functions of emotions? What is this, some sort of research notes?”
“AH!” Somebody exclaimed and Jake fell to the ground with somebody on top of him. “Uhh… hi… Jake.”
“What the heck?” Jake awkwardly looked at Cat. “How’d you get here? Where’s everybody? Is Shade still crazed?”
“First of all, I didn’t know I’d end up here. Second of all, I managed to sneak through a vent and found another place to get into. Third of all, everybody’s trapped somewhere not too far away. And… lastly… Shade’s not really that much; he’s managing since Flo is just across from him.” Cat replied, answering all of his questions.
“Wow… I ask that much questions?” He muttered. “But hey! Look over here… these are some real complicated stuff.”
Cat looked over at the text printed throughout blackboards, walls, and posters. “No… not really, actually. This must be Dark’s research lab. According to the readings, he’s just trying to figure out the functions to emotions. Basically, he wants to know all of the possible feelings that exist and take notes about it. This equation over here is pretty basic calculus and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out…” She grabbed a piece of chalk and started solving it with ease.
“Uh… okay.” Jake was still confused as he thought he saw numbers flying around his head. He glanced around at the area around him. “I don’t know HOW you know high school stuff, but… I think that that thing has something to do with him getting Florence… I think that was his reason; to see how his lover—in other words, Shade—would react to this happening.”
“Exactly.” Cat said after finishing the equation. “I don’t know how calculus would be used for this method, but that really does prove a good point.” She turned the board the other way around. “This well thought out plan shows everything. It’s not really that complicated, really.”
“Wow.” Jake said slowly. “How did you become this smart again?”
“Don’t ask me.” She shrugged. “I learned Algebra when I was nine, geometry and trigonometry when I was eleven, and basic calculus… right now.”
“… I don’t even know how to add and subtract integers.” He said, dumbfounded with a scratch in his head. “But anyway, we can just ignore my poor math skills and let’s get to the point—Go on with what you found out.”
“Soo, anyway… I found out by skimming through these files that Dark has been taking notes about how emotions and feelings work.” Cat flipped through a lot of papers in a file cabinet and neatly written notes printed on the wall. “According to this memorandum, he’s also been trying to work out the functions and the significance for a heart. Subsequent to that, the calculus he had put down was probably for some basic confusion and was probably trying to form a conundrum on how to get his hands on one. Don’t know how this would exactly all work… but… eh.”
“… I did NOT understand a single word you said.” Jake nodded with a mutter.
“Riiight… start reading more physics books.” She looked around to find, surprisingly, test tubes and beakers and bubbling fluids. “But I don’t think this lab shows a big significance to his research. It might be for some awkward fun.”
“Who works in a lab for fun?” He laughed. Cat retorted with a glare. “Right… geniuses… do.”
“I’ll pretend I didn’t hear that.” She said with a roll in her eyes.
Sherlyn, Tinker, and Kimper had made it all the way back to the village. They were out of breath from the nonstop running that they had done for a long, long time.
“We just left Jake and his friends to take on that guy on his own.” Kimper said. “Don’t you think we should turn back?” “I don’t think so,” her twin replied, scared. “That thing was CREEPY.”
“I… guess so.” Sher said. “What do you mean ‘I guess so’?” Tinker said. “It was scary and you know it.” “Yeah…” “Sher, what’s wrong with you?” “N-nothing…”
Tinker turned to her twin with suspicion building in her mind. “Sher, are you sure?” Sherlyn kept quiet but finally sighed. “Well… I guess you guys would figure this out sooner or later anyway.” “Huh?” “Erh… well, you see…” “What? Something wrong?” “Ummm…”
“This time, this place… Misused, mistakes… too long, too late… Who was I to make you wait?” Ash sang softly. “Just one chance, just on breath… just in case there’s just one left.” Florence joined in, trying her best to use a slightly different singing voice unlike her own. Ash could tell, though. “Cause you know… you know… you know.” They both sang together. “That I love you.” “And I loved you all along.” “And I miss you.” “Been far away for far too long.” “I keep dreaming, you’d be with me and you’d never go.” “Stop breathing if I don’t see you anymore.”
“Hey, where’d Cat go?” Ash stopped singing with Flo realized that there was someone missing as she looked around. Then she spotted an open vent in a nearby corner and tilted her head slightly. “Huh…” She thought for a moment but it was quickly lost when she heard something. “Ash!” Al called out so loud that there was a soft echo. “What are you doing??” “Ugh…”
“Well isn’t that touching?” A familiar voice chimed in. “Madisen?” “Leah?” “Kay?” Everybody was confused from behind the reformatory-like place where they stayed.
“What? You guys aren’t asking for some help so we could rescue all of you?” Leah teased with a roll in her eyes. “Yeah! What’s that about?” Kay chimed in. “Well duh we want to be saved!” Shade said. “We’re just a LITTLE confused on why you guys are here.” “Hey, I did mention that we’d come over to help you guys if you all needed it, didn’t I?” Madisen said. “Riiiight…” Everybody obviously forgot. “… Anyway, let’s see what we can do.”
“Wait!” Shade warned before any of the three could get even a foot close to the cage. “These aren’t regular bars. There’s an electric shock that can zap your finger… like… mine.” “Yeowch.” Leah remarked. “But there should be some way. There’s no key around, but there’s always a way!” “Exactly!” Kay said. “… I guess.”
“Did you guys forget that I’m a witch here?” Madisen said. “I can get from one place to another like that.” She snapped her fingers. “Are you guys forgetful or what?” “Uhhhh…” “Right… well.” She waved her wand a little and appeared in the small room where Florence and the rest were. “Now, join hands.” “EW.” Kevin remarked. “Do we have to join hands AGAIN?” “Ahem…” “But isn’t it you could do it one by one?” “Well yeah… but it’s so time-consuming.” “Fine, fine, fine.” Nobody else complained after that last comment as they all took each other’s hands then reappeared on the outside.
“Hey! It worked!” Al said. “Uhhh…” Ash muttered.
Madisen grinned at the plan that was working so far, waving her wand again so that she was now where Shade and the rest were. Nobody said a word because they knew what to do, as the three took each other’s hands (with a bit of awkwardness because Shade was stuck being the person that held both girls’ hands) and the same thing that happened last time took place.
“Shade!!” Florence immediately said, coming up to him as they both hugged. “I missed you!” “Well, I’m glad you’re okay.” Shade muttered gladly.
“Hey Al I…” Al was running up to her and giving her an even bigger hug as it cut off Ash. “Missed… you.” “I missed you too!”
“Just glad you’re okay.” Amanda said slowly as she came up to Kevin but suddenly just hugged him real tightly. “Yeah, I’m… real overjoyed.” “I can tell…”
“I want a hug!” Kay said, randomly hugging Madisen and Leah. They both looked at her awkwardly. “S-Sorry… I… didn’t want to feel left out.” “Well, we better get out of here.” Madisen said. “Wait… we better try and find where Cat and Jake are.” Leah brought up.
“Hmmm… what in the world is this?” Jake said, picking up a small blackboard with neatly written notes. He slowly read the first line. “Love helps… makes the… bond or friendship… stronger… it can… also help… get things done… quicker?”
Cat looked over at what he was trying to read, having a faster and more fluent reading pace. “According to my research today,” she stopped to look at the current date that was jotted down there at he top right-hand corner, “I have closely watched three couples that are perfect subjects to show this significance between love and hate—or better yet, the concern of one for another. I have also noted that this intriguing group helps eliminate enemies if there were such a thing as ‘friends’ or in other cases, ‘lovers’.” She paused to look at the drawing (or picture, you couldn’t really tell) that was very life-like and exactly like the short battle scene that took place. “This evidence proves that love is one of the even greater emotions of the human kind.”
“That was… awkward.” Jake said. “One, I actually understood that. And two… who would take notes on emotions and how the heart is such a big meaning.”
“Yeah… kind of makes you think, you know?” She said. “I’m sure it does.” A very familiar, creepy voice chimed in.
“Hey! What are you doing here?” Jake called out as he turned around. “I should ask YOU the same thing.” Dark pointed at Cat. “Bring it on!” She didn’t answer the previous question and just morphed to dragon form. Jake soon did so after that. “Gladly…”
“Lalala… Shall I stay? Would it be a sin? If I can’t help… falling in love with you…” Florence hummed quietly. “I still say you should tell everyone,” Shade muttered who was next to her. “Maybe… l-later. I’d rather not just yet.” “If you say so…” “Take my hand… take my whooole life too. For I, can’t help… falling in looove with yoooou.” “Come on, Flo.” “Shaaade.”
They both quieted down after everybody stopped to look around after hearing something. “Hey, doesn’t that sound like Jake??” Ash said. “Yeah… I think that’s Cat too.” Amanda added. “How can you tell?” Al muttered. “You’ll never win, you monster!” They heard from the inside.
“That doesn’t sound too good.” Florence remarked. “You guys want to help them out?” Kevin said. “I think we should.” Shade said. Everybody nodded in agreement, either changing into dragon or getting ready.
“Take that!” Amanda shot a few fireballs that were easily dodged. “Great, we’re back to where we started.” Florence muttered, apparently being some sort of distraction again since she only had certain abilities. “Tell me about it.” Shade said, shooting balls of ice like he did last time. These ones weren’t exactly that simple to overlook, though. Leah also tried a bit of her telekinesis to help them out, which also worked. Madisen used a bit of her own influential magic to help out Leah. Dreams may had seemed to be a little confused at first but attempted to use a bit of her own unique dragon powers. The threesome helped out each other out while Shade and the rest tried to help too.
Everybody seemed to be doing a good job after getting halfway through the battle but it seemed as if the enemy wasn’t exactly too happy about being on the verge of losing. “You think you’re all that, huh?” “No!!! Shade!!”
End Chapter Ten
OOOH. SUSPENSE. Sucks... huh? You'll never find out what happens to Shade! Mwahahaha. O_O *runs and gets shot* :fup:
Heh... well, sorry if it took me two or three days to get an update going but... between you and me, I have this 'secret' fic (that's NOT a secret anymore) that I've been working on. I write it in my notebook instead of Microsoft Word. So it might have a billion typos... I worked on like nine pages on it for like 2 hours. It actually takes me longer to write with pencil and paper. I could do a nine page chapter on MW in less than half an hour if I wanted to. XD
