Story Seventy - Ends March 29th

It was lunch time on the station, and Grundo's Cafe was spilling over with tourists, workers and the usual rabble, filling the cafe with boisterous conversation and the clanking of plates and forks. Watching the bustle from the back of the cafe, with an untouched plate of Vegetable Deluxe before him, was a red Grundo.

"I'll have a Beef Rouladen," a Kacheek shouted over the noise.

From behind the counter, the exhausted Grundo Chef looked up at his customer. "We're all out, but if you want to wait, there'll be a new batch in about eight minutes."

A Blumaroo at a nearby table hopped back on his tail and pointed at his plate. "Hey! There's a space-gerbil in my Cheese Manicotti!"

A furry mass arose from the plate, shook itself and rolled off the table. From the corner of his eye, the red Grundo saw several cafe patrons climbing onto their benches. But his attention was fixed on the nervous-looking Quiggle at the chef's counter...

"You gotta give me the Beef Rouladen!" The Quiggle nervously dripped sweat all over the counter.

"Sorry, but we're out," the Grundo Chef said as he wiped the counter. "You'll just have to wait."

"But I can't wait! My wife will have my head!"

Suddenly, a monstrous Skeith emerged from a table in the back. She slowly walked up to the counter, grabbed the Quiggle, then quietly left the cafe. The red Grundo sat quietly in his seat for five mintutes, then he too, left the cafe.

Later...

"It's a horrible mess, Judy. Furniture scattered, it's like someone, or something was trying to find Thermias. Poor Quiggle," the red Grundo's television blared, as a scene of Thermias's house just appeared. The NeoHome was in such a wreck, it looked like someone threw an active Tornado Ring inside.

The red Grundo's Warf, Jayloch, jumped onto his lap.

"Whaddya think happened?" the red Grundo asked his Warf. Jayloch jumped in the air, then landed with a THUD!

"This could only mean one thing happened to the Quiggle," he said. "And that is..."

...something that hasn't happened in 500 years! Do you remember what happened last time, Jayloch? I can, but how do we solve it this time?"

Jayloch started running around the room, searching for something. He finally pulled it outa shimmery piece of very old paper. Light bounced off it, giving it a diamond look.

"Jayloch! Be careful! That thing is very dangerous!" he cried.

"Dane Gerous here with N.E.O. News. Today, a Quiggle's house was ransacked, and his family is missing. One Kacheek, a senile old neighbor, allegedly claims that he saw the criminals, but neighbors say he is unstable, and not to take him seriously." The newscast flashed a picture across the screen of the old Kacheek arguing with a tree.

The red Grundo gasped when he saw the picture. Any thoughts of his diamond paper disappeared. He knew that Kacheek! He was...

...the one from the restaurant! The red Grundo crossed his arms. What was his name?

"Kramor the Kacheek, nicknamed Krazy by locals, says that the Dark Faerie, the Pant Devil and a Cheese Sandwich carried Thermias off," Dane Gerous said, about to move on to weather.

The red Grundo pulled a notepad and his lucky blue pencil out and began to write,

Thermias the quiggle: victim
Kramor the Kacheek: possible witness
Beef Rouladen: what they both wanted.

"NO, Jayloch! Stop chewing the paper!" The red Grundo suddenly remembered about the paper and his Warf's habit for gnawing on things.

The red Grundo grabbed the paper out of Jayloch's mouth, when suddenly...

...A loud crashing sound was heard in his bedroom.

"Gadzooks! What was that?" The red Grundo thought as he came running into his bedroom.

What he found was a rock on his plush cream carpet and a broken window. Looking out, he saw no one else but Kramor turning over rocks, looking under them and then throwing the rocks in every direction.

The red Grundo went outside and gently tapped Kramor on the shoulder. "What are you doing?" he asked.

"Looking for the Cheese Sandwich," the Kacheek muttered without looking up, as he turned over a rock. He threw it away after finding nothing under it.

"Cheese sandwich?"

"Yeah," answered the Kacheek. "I saw him dragging a hog-tied Hot Dog and disappearing under a rock, but I forgot which one."

Hmmmm, the Grundo thought to himself, this is getting more curious by the minute. Is there some truth to what he's saying or is this just nonsense?...

...The Grundo sighed. "Kramor, what is making you so...weird all of a sudden?"

Kramor jumped up indignantly. "WHAT DO YOU MEAN I'M CRAZY?!"

The Grundo backed away nervously. "Sorry...sorry..."

The Kacheek grunted and went back to checking the rocks. The Grundo grumbled something about craziness and rudeness combined when his foot slammed against a rock.

"Yeeeeeeeeooooowww!!" the Grundo yelled, as he grabbed his foot and hopped around the lawn on one foot.

The rock, in fact, hit Kramor in the head. Dazed, he turned around. "Jumpin' junipers! Look at that!" he said.

The Grundo stopped hopping around and stared, amazed at the single Hot Dog that was hidden under the rock.

"Haha. See, I told you I'm not crazy."

Kramor leaped happily around the lawn, when suddenly, a pack of Elephantes pulled up in front of the lawn...

...and began to charge straight at the Grundo!!

"AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!" said the Grundo, as he quickly pushed Kramor out of the way and grabbed the lonely Hot Dog before sprinting to hide behind a nearby tree. After a few minutes, the pack of crazed Elephantes had moved on, and the Grundo looked back at his now dusty, browner-than-before yard to see if Kramor was okay. But he was nowhere to be seen.

"Oh, no...not this...not two people missing..." The poor Grundo was about to scratch his head when he realised he was still holding the Hot Dog. And that there was a piece of paper attached to it.

Suddenly a flood of excitement began to surge through his body when he realized the paper had writing on it. And it read:

THE ADDRESS IS:
438 STONEY VIEW ROAD
HAUNTED WOODS, NEOPIA
GET HERE BY 4:15 PM

SALLY, DON'T FORGET TO BRING THE HOT DOGIT'S IMPORTANTAND MAKE SURE YOU DON'T FORGET TO KIDNAP THE DELUSIONAL KACHEEK. HE'S CAUSED TOO MUCH TROUBLE ALREADY. YOU KNOW WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU. DO ALL THIS AND YOU GET THE EXTRA CHEESE. BUT IF YOU FORGET THE HOT DOG, THEN YOU LOOSE YOUR HEAD. IT'S TOO LATE TO BACK OUT NOW.
JOHNATHAN.

Yes!! WAHOOOO!! thought the Grundo. "Finally, a lead!!" he said out loud, jumping around the yard just like Kramor had done before. But that reminded him, he had to be serious. This was a very important case and it had to be solved. Now all he had to do was...

...Find 438 Stoney View Road! It couldn't be that hard, right?!

WRONG. Terribly wrong. After hours of checking his map, trudging through swamps, and cutting vines to get through the spooky forest, he saw it. 438 Stoney View Road. The guy who wrote the note must have had a pretty good sense of humor.

438 Stoney View Road was dilapidated, to say the least. The Grundo was pretty annoyed. "Some lead," he muttered. "All this for...that!" He grumbled along as he walked toward the house. May as well check it out...

...The house was big, to say the least. Covered with vines and bats and what vaguely resembled bones. "I wonder what they need the Hot Dog for," the red Grundo thought out loud, until he saw it: A HUGE metallic...thing on top of the roof.

Right next to the metal thing were two small figures opening a latch on it. The Grundo dashed up to the house and tried to open the door. It was stuck. But that was no problem. He reached into his backpack and pulled out a crowbar he had brought along in case he was in a situation like this. He broke open the lock and slammed into the door, but landed on the floor with a thud when the door simply swung open with ease. Looking around the house, he found many unidentifiable things...small spaceship toysat least he hoped they were toysa metal robotic blender...

He looked closer at the blender. Inside was...A HOT DOG!!

The grundo heard a grunting sound behind him. He turned around slowly, and came face to face with an Elephante and a black Shoyru. Patterns of fire adorned the Shoyru, as it looked down at the Grundo with a look of pure amusement.

"What have we here?" asked the Shoyru. "Ah, I see you've brought back the Hot Dogvery important, it is! In that case I will spare you."

"Johnathan, what is it?" called a feminine voice from upstairs.

"Nothing more than a little adventurer who's brought back the Hot Dog for us, Sally. Now, finish connecting the dispenser!" yelled Johnathan, the Shoyru.

"I didn't come to give it back!" shouted the Grundo. "Where's the Kacheek and the Quiggle?"

"Hmm?"

"I'm not giving you this Hot Dog until you show me where you put the ones you kidnapped and set them free...plus I demand to know what you're doing."

"If you must know..." John sighed, and began. "There are certain Hot Dogs that, when blended and given to the large dispenser we landed on the roof, get turned into a fine yellow cheese. This cheese is believed to make one immortal, and to grant all the wishes and power that the eater wants. One drop and you can live forever. A whole mouthful and you can rule the world."

"Oookkaaay..." The Grundo said nervously. He wasn't sure this Shoyru and his partner were mentally stable either...

When suddenly, "OKAY JOHN I'M READY!"

"I'll be up!" Johnathan called upstairs. He grabbed the Grundo. "I'm sure our guest would love to watch..."

...The Grundo tore himself from the Shoyru's grasp and raced down a hallway, hugging the Hot Dog close to him. He wasn't taking any chances. There might be some truth to what Johnathan had said.

The Shoyru was gaining on him, until finally, there was only one way left: up. Breathing slowly, the Grundo ran upstairs.

This isn't going to be pretty...he thought.

"Hahahahaha!" Johnathan laughed maliciously. "We've got you now!"

"Johnathon!" It was Sally. "Just take the Hot Dog from him and put it in the dispenser! We don't have that much time."

"Sally, after this, we'll have all the time in the world!"

"I know! But I want to get this done first!" She said impatiently. With that, she wrenched the Hot Dog, which was still inside the blender, from the Grundo's grasp. Hastily pushing the BLEND button, she took the resulting liquid and poured it into the dispenser.

Watching the liquid greedily, the two partners weren't paying any attention to the red Grundo. Spotting the unconscious forms of the Kacheek and the Quiggle in the corner, he ran to untie their bonds.

Staring at the dispenser nervously, everyone waited expectantly. All of a sudden, a yellow form shot out of the curved end of the dispenser. It went past the surprised partners and fell in front of the Grundo. Next to it was a piece of paper. He took the paper and the cheese.

He smiled evilly at the Shoyru, who gasped. He ate the cheese right in front of them.

The red Grundo felt a fuzzy feeling in his stomach, nearly making him pass out. Grunting, he picked up the two victims and waveringly walked out of the house.

Did anything even happen? he wondered. He didn't feel like he was immortal. Remembering the paper that had come with the cheese he looked at it.

It read: Good for one free pass to Hot Dog World! Do not consume. Can cause stomachache, pain and headaches.

The End
