The Noodles and the Spyder Invasion

by yaboofernoodle

Going through a few dimensions, the Noodles finally figured out how to use the Time Machine to return home from Version 10. Well, we had come back just in time for the next mystery concert I had booked. It was a mystery because nobody, not even me, knew where we were going to be, or whom we were playing for! Everyone waited around the house, practising a little bit before our ride would come. When the doorbell finally rang, everyone sprang up to grab it.

"IT'S MINE, I SAY! MINE!!!" Firey_Sac yelled. He flung open the door and looked around. "…There's nobody here…" he whispered. He heard a small "ARF!" from the ground. Firey_Sac looked down and saw a little Doglefox. "Aww…it's so cute!" he cooed. "ARF! ARF!" the Doglefox cried out. In the blink of an eye, the Doglefox had leaped onto Firey_Sac's head. "GRR…ARF! ARF! WOOF!" It howled. "Get it off! Get it off! Get it off!" Firey_Sac sobbed.

"Rainyn! Down! Get down! Is that how you treat others?" We heard someone say. "Sorry about Rainyn. He's a bit tempered today." The Doglefox whined and hopped off of Firey_Sac's head. "Hi! I'm LuminaPaw, but you can call me Mina." We heard the voice again. A shimmering white Lupess stepped out from behind a bush. "My owner and I are here to pick you up for the concert."

I blinked and shook my head. "Huh? I'm confused. Who are we playing for, and where are we playing?"

Mina giggled. "Silly. It's my birthday party, and I was hoping you would play some songs for us." I sat and thought for a second.

"Okay. Anything for a fan! We were getting a bit bored, anyway." Everyone grabbed their instruments got ready to go.

When we arrived there, we saw all the decorations. "Wow! This is awesome!" Bhuhbuh said. There were all sorts of banners and shimmering glitters.

"Do you like it? I'll go get you some party hats and candy! They're in the basement, c'mon! Follow me." Mina pounced off.

We left our instruments upstairs and followed her down into the basement.

"There they are! Voila! Here you go." Mina passed out the candy and hats and we left to go back upstairs. Click, click, click... there was something wrong with the lock.

"The door! It's not opening! I know I had a spare key." Mina sighed and sat down on the steps. Only a few seconds later, we heard a strange hissing sound. "Tsssssssssss… tsssssssssss…" We heard again. Everyone looked at the corner. There was a pair of glowing eyes, and we could see a small key glimmering.

"I have a bad feeling about this…" KN whispered softly, a hint of fear in her quivering voice.

We all huddled in a corner as we saw a Spyder come out with our key…then two more Spyders, then four more, then sixteen more, then thirty-two more... fifty-five Spyders faced us, and that was just a portion of their tribe. "TSSS! TSSS!" They all spat and hissed at us.

"Look, you guys," Number Nimmo said. "We've all had our chance to save each other before, but this time, I don't think we could win this even if we worked together. I'm sorry, guys… it's been great, and I really didn't want it to end like this, but I guess you just have to face the…" Number Nimmo couldn't even finish his sentence, when we heard a loud "GRR…ARF! ARF!" from behind us. We turned around and saw little Rainyn, tail pointed up and twitching, and a snarl on his face.

"GRR… RARF! RARF! WOOF! WOOF!!!" Rainyn cried out. He leaped upon each Spyder and hopped across them as though they were mere stepping stones, squashing every evil Spyder he landed on. Mina and the band watched in astonishment as the little Doglefox conquered every last one. "Arf! Arf!" he barked out in happiness. Terror struck the eyes of everyone except Rainyn, who couldn't see behind him. We saw extremely large red eyes appear from the shadows behind Rainyn, and a crown shining above them. Rainyn stopped wagging his tail and barking, and slowly looked behind him.

"TSSSSSSS! TSSSSS! TSSSSS!" the creature said.

A resounding WHACK was heard, and poor Rainyn went flying across the room into a wall.

"Hrrrm…aarrrm…" Rainyn whimpered slowly.

"Rainyn! Oh, Rainyn!" Mina sobbed with tears running down her face. "Please! Help! I'll take care of Rainyn, you take care of the King Spyder!"

The giant Spyder was in full view now, and it reared up in anger. "Quick!" KN yelled. "Hit the King Spyder's belly! It's the only weak spot! I read it in one of my books." She grinned, and grabbed a lamp out of a nearby junk box. Everybody did the same, even me. We chucked our lamp weapons at the belly of our foe, and he fell quickly.

"Wow," I said. "I didn't think it would be that easy." I picked up the key off the ground and unlocked the door. "Mina! Hurry! Bring Rainyn upstairs, I might be able to heal him.


Rainyn is better now, and everyone is doing fine. We bought some Anti-NeoBug for Mina's basement and went on with the concert. Of course, that was a month ago. Obviously things would be right by now! Well, except for one thing…we didn't know where our next concert would take us.

The End

Author's Note: Hi, everyone! I'm sooooo sorry for the lack of stories. :P I was a bit busy for a while. I hope the story by spuddie_hang quenched a bit of that Noodles thirst. ^_^ Many thanks to miss_laddy as well, who helped me out with some story ideas and let me use Mina in this story. See ya later, everyone!
