A side-quest with just Ginger and Khieki while Byokku and Chaos are off doing their adventure thingie from a different roleplay! I have NO remembrance from what happened last! Except for this little smidgen:
Somehow Ginger and Khieki got bored, found an odd-looking bouncy ball that wasn't quite the one they were looking for but they went with it. Then they went home.
It is 4am and Ginger and Khieki are having a sleep over. Their cRacK stash (chocolate) is running low. Ginger watches and cheers as Khieki furiously mashes buttons on the paddle in mad attempts to beat a video game.
GINGER: Jump! Jump jump jump! Quick jump over the cactus!
KHIEKI: I'm trying! I'm trying! D8< *leaps the character into a bush of cacti*
GAME: GAME OVER
KHIEKI: Stupid cactus! I can never get past this part!
GINGER: Here, lemme try.
KHIEKI: Ok, but it's really hard, dude. *gives paddle*
GINGER: *beats the level with perfect score and skill* 8D
GAME: Congratulations! *confetti*
What. The. Buckets
DX I'm supposed to be the epic gamer here!
GINGER: Yeah, well XD
GAME: Continue to next level?
GIN+KHI: Next level!!!
Their game play is then interrupted when they feel an ominous dark presence behind them. They look back over their shoulders and scream at what they see.
KHIEKI: Oh. It's just Ryuma.
GIN+KHI: *bust up laughing instead*
RYUMA: I WOULD be offended, but not this time, darlings! Because tonight
tonight will be a whole different story!
GINGER: *wipes tears from eyes* What the heck, Ryuma, it's four in the morning!
KHIEKI: Yeah, go home! No boys invited!
RYUMA: *ignores Khieki* *points dramatically at Ginger* Yakumo! You will be MINE! Once and for all!
GINGER: HUH!? I'm not Yakumo!
KHIEKI: Yeah, uh
Ryuma? That's Ginger. I understand that all those years of damage to your head might have messed you up a bit, but dude
you're a little off---
RYUMA: Enough! Aki, take my bride to my palace.
A black swirly portal opens up beneath the two girls and swallows them whole. Within seconds, they are deposited into a fancy, royal-ish, yet ice-cold, chamber room.
KHIEKI: Ow! That was SO uncalled for.
GINGER: Is Aki working for Ryuma again?
AKI: *appears out of no-where* That would be correct.
KHIEKI: Sigh. Ok Aki, what's the evil-master-plan behind kidnapping us THIS time?
GINGER: Ryuma doesn't honestly think I'm Yakumo, does he? ;__;
AKI: Well, you do look a little like her.
GINGER: I object!
AKI: No. Really. Look:
1. Shoulder-length brunet hair
2. Blue eyes, same skin colour and complexion
3. Taller than Ryuma
KHIEKI: Ryuma's THAT short? WOW.
GINGER: *whacks Khieki* It's not funny!
KHIEKI: Ow. Ok but honestly, how could Ryuma mistake Ginger for Yakumo? He knows us! He KNOWS Ginger! I mean, we all hung out together with him and stuff.
GINGER: When you say "hang out" you mean torturing him to no end in the most inhumane methods not even known to man. For no reason.
AKI: Whether or not Lord Ryuma is still sane from those unspeakable past terrors
it doesn't matter. As far as I'm concerned, he is my master now (again). His will SHALL be done, and he wants Ginger, "Yakumo" or no, as his bride.
GINGER: D8< !?
KHIEKI: *pats Ginger on the back* Aki, dear
you're scaring the poor thing. Having the words "Ryuma" and "Marriage" in the same sentence is frightening beyond measure. C'mon man, can't you let us go? Because our game is still running and we haven't had the chance to save yet.
AKI: I cannot, not unless my master commands me. You know the rules.
KHIEKI: You stupid Swirly Portals and your freak'n oath!
AKI: Lord Ryuma wishes to see you now.
RYUMA: *enters room* *sees Khieki* What is SHE doing here? I wish to be alone with my bride.
AKI: *attempts to escort Khieki outside*
KHIEKI: *jerks away* Whoa whoa whoa! Hey wait. Ok yeah NO! Look lizard man, you are NOT bossing me around! I'm not leaving my best friend, especially not alone with a creeper like you.
GINGER: I'm going to call GSP!
RYUMA: GSP? He can't help you.
GIN+KHI: *snaps fingers* GSP!
KHIEKI: Come here now!
GIN+KHI: *flailing and running around frantically in circles* GSP! GSP! GSP! GSP! GSP! GSP! GSP! D8
RYUMA: Mwa ha ha ha ha! Your petty Green Swirly Portal cannot save you, my darlings.
GINGER: Why isn't it working!? D8
KHIEKI: Yeah, how come he's not here!?
RYUMA: *smirking* Aki, why don't you explain?
AKI: *ahem* I've placed you both under a spell. It's a special power that only Dark Portals, such as myself, have. It makes it so that your Swirly Portal in this case GSP unreachable.
KHIEKI: WHAT!? Totally unfair!
GINGER: That's shallow!
AKI: It's very fair. No matter what you do, GSP cannot hear you, see you, or sense you. This makes it easier for my master to have his way.
KHIEKI: Ok not cool. Ryuma, you are in a WORLD of hurt!
RYUMA: *laughs evilly* Oh, how the tables have turned, Khieki. I no longer fear you. Now YOU will be "tortured"!
KHIEKI: Um. Hm. Nope. Not getting' any fear from you. I still think you're ugly and a worthless villain.
RYUMA: *sighs irritantly* Aki, make her leave now.
AKI: *takes Khieki*
KHIEKI: Ah, hey! Leggo! RYUMAAAAAAaaaaa------- D8<
Aki disappears with a furious Khieki.
RYUMA: Finally! Now then, Yakumo, we're finally alone---
GINGER: I'm not Yakumo.
RYUMA: Er- yes you are.
GINGER: Uh, no dude, I'm not.
RYUMA: Don't try to fool me!
GINGER: C-mon! It's me, Ginger, remember? Remember the good ol' days? You, me, Khieki
our buds, Link, Bloo, Omochao and them?
RYUMA: *cocks head* But you look so much like Yakumo. *finally starting to get confused*
GINGER: *frustrated* Wow, you ARE stupid! Whatever Khieki did to you in the past must have really screwed with your memory.
RYUMA: Enough! All that matters is that you are a human girl, and in my world, humans don't exist
(or at least they aren't supposed to.) SO!! I will make you my queen regardless.
GINGER: So what? What will that accomplish for you?
RYUMA: *smug* Marrying a human will prove me to be the most daring and fiercest General of all Enterra.
GINGER: Yeah, but, you already attempted this gig with the real Yakumo. (See episode 14 of Shinzo!) You failed miserably. What on earth makes you think it'll work with ME? (Of all people?)
RYUMA: This time, my darling, there will be no purple-haired dark knight to rescue you.
GINGER: *rolls eyes* Yeah. Mostly likely not -_-
Meanwhile, in the dungeon
KHIEKI: Somehow I always end up a cell. Ho hum
I really have no idea what to do now. We obviously can't get GSP's help.
*whips out cell phone* Wonder if this thing can handle long distance calls?
PHONE: *dee dee lee di la dee da de*
SAGI: Hello! ^o^
KHIEKI: Holy crap it DOES work!
KHIEKI: Sagi 8D
SAGI: Aaaugh~~~! 8DDD
KHIEKI: Listen, I need your help. My friend and I have been kidnapped. We're at Ryuma's.
SAGI: What!? So THAT'S where that little sneak ran off to! I'm so sorry Onee-chan
I must have forgotten to lock the cupboard
KHIEKI: It's ok, all is forgiven. Now, I need you to get a hold of someone for me.
KHIEKI: Someone who can come save us. Like
a knight in shining armor!
SAGI: Byokku and Chaos? 8D
KHIEKI: No, no, that's a "stud-muffin," dear. I think those guys are busy now anyways.
This has gotta work for Ginger.
SAGI: Huh, why?
well lemme put it this way: Ryuma thinks Ginger is Yakumo.
SAGI: O___O OH NO HE DIDN'T!
KHIEKI: He did.
SAGI: That two-timing jerk!! DX Don't worry Onee-chan, we'll save you. D:<
KHIEKI: Thx Sagi
Oh, but you can call Byokku and Chaos anyway to tell them we're ok.
SAGI: Ok! 8D Baaiiii~~
SAGI: *pulls out a massive phone book from her desk*
SAGI: Time to make some calls
IPOD: *sets to Dreamin' by Carson*
Back at Ryuma's:
GINGER: *aimlessly wandering the palace*
Ho hum. I'm a distressed damsel forced to marry against my will. Wo is me.
La di da di da~ *sees Khieki* Khieki!
KHIEKI: *is also aimlessly wandering
and on the phone*
yeah, that'll be five large combos delivered to Mr. McFugly's Castle; we're on the peak of despair just slightly North-East from a snowy icy mountain of death in the middle of nowhere. Kthxbai.
Oh hey Ginger!
GINGER: Dude, you're still alive.
KHIEKI: Dude, you're still unmarried.
GINGER: -__- Yes... Who was on the phone?
KHIEKI: I called for some rescue. Dunno when they'll be here, so hang tight. Also, I ordered pizza.
Khieki: You like pepperoni?
GINGER: Yeah 8D
KHIEKI: Ok cool. So whaddya wanna do?
GINGER: I'unno. Go Fish?
KHIEKI: You're on.
And so Ginger breaks out the playing cards and they sprawl across the corridor.
Back in Colorado!
SAGI: *calling people*
Hello, Batman? Yes I'd like to place an order to crash a wedding
Oh, you don't do party-crashing? Oh well thx anyway.
I could call the Joker but honestly I doubt anyone would get "rescued."
Who else is there to call? *flips through phone book*
Maybe I should look under the Knights-In-Shining-Armor tab.
*flips to "Stud-Muffins"*
Oh! Here's Byokku. *calls*
SAGI: OMG BYOKKU 8DDD
BYOKKU: Uh, hi?
SAGI: It's Sagi!!
BYOKKU: Well hey there. *is playing video games, drinking chocolate milk, AND eating a sammich---all at the same time*
SAGI: k so liek, I got a call from Khieki.
SAGI: Yeah, she and Ginger have been abducted.
BYOKKU: What!? *drops milk* How? O_o
SAGI: Ryuma. But that's not important. Just letting you know that they're fine, and I've got everything under control (that is if I can get a hold of any help
BYOKKU: Wait, seriously!?
SAGI: Uh-huh 8D We'll keep you updated! *click*
On the other line
CHAOS: Who was that? *playing video games, drinking chocolate milk, and eating a sammich*
BYOKKU: Khieki and Ginger have been kidnapped!
CHAOS: *drops milk* WHAT!?
*flips pages and lands in the numbers for "Guys With Smexy Glasses"*
Hey, Chaos's number is in here.
GASP. Rivka! *calls Rivka*
RIVKA: This is the KDNP ~ Kidnappers' Association, "Kidnapping in Action." My name is Rivka, how may I help you?
SAGI: Hello hawt stuff with smexy glasses! My friends have been abducted and I'm wondering if could make an appointment for a rescue?
RIVKA: Miss, we DO the kidnapping.
SAGI: Oh. Well see that actually works out too 'cuz I need to kidnap back the guy who kidnapped the kidnappees.
RIVKA: Ah-ha, now see that we CAN do. Lemme just ask your name, the name of the kidnappee, desired location plus some other details and we'll be set <3
RYUMA: *taking a stroll while talking about evil stuff to Aki*
Think of it, my friend; all of Enterra's Generals will envy that I, Ryuma, Lord of Reptiles, have in my possession, the rarest of all rarities
the very last human being completely at my disposal!
AKI: *not really listening*
RYUMA: And not only that, but as my queen!
RYUMA: *turns a corner and suddenly smacked in the face with a basketball*
KHIEKI: Hey, throw that back, will ya?
RYUMA: What's going on
why are there holes in my walls? Augh! Everything is broken!
RYUMA: How dare you make sport of my palace!
KHIEKI: *frowns and turns to Ginger* C'mon Ginger, let's go somewhere else where there aren't any losers.
GINGER: Ok. *they leave*
RYUMA: *to Aki* I thought you had them locked up?
AKI: I did. No offense my Lord, but you DO realize who you are dealing with?
RYUMA: Humans! They are but mere humans! Argh!
*huffs and sighs*
Aki, I wish to begin the preparations for my wedding now. And also, let's discuss my vengeance plan on Khieki. She's really beginning to irritate me!
AKI: *yawns* Alright.
A couple days pass. Long boring days
KHIEKI: *making pancakes* I swear
there is absolutely nothing to do.
GINGER: Yeah I know. *dullingly playing the Nintendo 64*
KHIEKI: Today's the day, isn't it?
GINGER: Ugh, don't remind me -_-
RYUMA: *barges in* Today is the day, Yakumo, my darling! Come here my bride
*sees Khieki and stops*
KHIEKI: *waves with spatula in hand*
RYUMA: What the---YOU!
You were sentenced to the torture chamber (for the twentieth time)!! *disbelief*
KHIEKI: Yeah and?
GINGER: I invited her up to spend the night
RYUMA: Agh! Whatever! Aki, take her away (again).
AKI: Yes, Master.
KHIEKI: What? Hey! I'M STILL COOKING-------*engulfed by darkness and then disappears*
RYUMA: Now then
GINGER: Whaddya want, Ryuma -_-
RYUMA: You should be happy, darling. It's your special night.
GINGER: Oh I'm ecstatic.
RYUMA: Good. Now get ready.
GINGER: *yawn* Fine. *saves game*
Outside the Palace
SAGI: Ok guys, you all know the plan?
GUYS: *in formal attire* Yessir!
SAGI: We'll wait until night falls!
Blah blah blah night comes
GINGER: Did the dress HAVE to be so ugly?
RYUMA: You do not like it?
GINGER: Heck no! *repulsed by her reflection in the mirror*
RYUMA: *frowns* Well deal with it. It's almost time, Yakumo.
*turns a 180 degree and sees Khieki standing RIGHT there* Aah!! O_O
KHIEKI: 8D *stupid happy face*
GINGER: Gasp, Khieki!
RYUMA: Where do you keep popping up from!?
KHIEKI: I'm the maid of honor 83
RYUMA: *about to rip out hair* AUGH!!!! Whatever! It matters not. Because tonight, when we make our vows, I will have won, if I haven't already! Yakumo, my darling, I will see you in a few moments.
GINGER: Yeah k bai ¬_¬
GINGER: Dude, I thought help was coming?
KHIEKI: They are.
GINGER: Where are they?
GINGER: Are you serious!? Are you absolutely SURE that someone's coming to save us
I only have Sagi's word
GINGER: KHIEKI!!! D8
KHIEKI: Hey hey! Um
we'll get out of this! I promise! If help doesn't arrive
Here! Take the bouncy ball. *gives bouncy ball*
KHIEKI: Use it as a last resort.
GINGER: How the heck is this gonna help me? DX
KHIEKI: We'll wing-it 8D
'cuz "wingin'-it" always works -_-
KHIEKI: I know, right? Now you gotta go. Do the walk-down-the-aisle-thing or whatever it is that brides do. *hands Ginger a bouquet and shoves her out the door*
GINGER: Guh-hey! D8
*they enter the chapel, everyone's staring at them, Ryuma waiting smugly at the altar*
GINGER: *getting nervous* *whispers* Uh
dude? I still don't see anyone Knight-In-Shining-Armor worthy.
KHIEKI: Keep walking, keep walking. It's fine.
*thinks to self: crap
MARRIAGE GUY: Blah blah blah stuff about being faithful blah
GINGER: *frantic look at Khieki*
quick! Bouncy ball action!
GINGER: DX *hucks the bouncy ball and it transforms into a meteor and hits Ryuma and then it flies through the ceiling*
ALL: Whoa O_o
