“What’s that?” John screamed over the noises of battle.
“I don’t know” Frank answered. But as he spoke the rumbling became louder. And LOUDER. And LOUDER. Suddenly, an enormous black hole appeared and began to tear reality apart. Gradually the entire squad of bunnies and gerbil disappeared into the dark depths of the black hole, never to return. As for the companions and their large and rather smelly new friends, they desperately clutched the long strands of seaweed growing from the ground.
But all of a sudden, there was a startling noise “OURT, OURT, OURT, OURT”
“What was that?” “Wait, noooooooooo… George!” Eric wailed as he saw his friend, also freaked out by the mysterious ourting, had let go of the seaweed and the chain of dinosaurs, giant, kraken, chinchilla, sea hydra, blob and cyborg dragon went cascading into the darkness. The companions closed their eyes and awaited certain death. But it never happened, for the moment George had let go of the seaweed, an enormous purple space coati flew down and sat on the black hole reducing it to a couple of small time rifts shifting around. In due course it also saved the friends from being ripped out of existence and allowed a comfortable seating on the coati’s neck. Doing what many other creatures would do when confronted with a black hole; they quickly scrambled onto the large, purple, fluffy seating space between the head of their spacecraft and the body. After 653 hours, the company was feeling rather bored when suddenly a beam of rainbow colored popcorn was burst out of a small pink and yellow spaceship and streamed at the coati, causing the companions to fly off the coati at gargantuan speeds as well as causing an explosion 50 times the size of a hydrogen bomb.
“What was that!?” George screamed as he rocketed through the air and landed, quite painfully, in the center of massive volcano. Soon, the entire fellowship had landed violently on different parts of the mountain, causing the top of the volcano to collapse, trapping George inside.
“Ahhhhhhh… ” George’s friends could hear no more than a faint whisper of his voice, echoing from inside the depths of the collapsed volcano.
“What? George? Wait, we got to get him out of there!” exclaimed Eric, and as he said so, he began furiously digging into the side of the mountain.
“Stttttttooooooop… run away from the volcanooooo…” came a whisper from inside the pile of rubble in a once massive volcano.
“Um… okay,” said Eric, as he began to back away from the towering pile of rocks and lava.
As he did so, he could hear counting from inside the crumbled mountain “10… 9… 8… 7… 6… 5… 4… 3… 2… 1…,” and an explosion worthy of a dying hyper nova issued from the pile of rubble and blotted the entire volcano off the face of the planet. As the smoke cloud cleared the remaining companions had not been knocked out slowly got up and stumbled around to inspect the damage dealt by the enormous explosion.
As they sadly made there way to the explosion center they thought George was dead, great was their amazement when they saw that where the volcano once stood sat George, completely unscathed by the super nova explosion. “Hi!” he said happily, “are you okay?”
“Whaa… howww… huh???” Jake, John, and Tom stuttered in unison. “What happened?”
“I have claustrophobia,” George replied meekly.
“WHAT HAPPENED?” Jake asked again, but a little louder.
“I might have used a few thousand nuclear bombs I found on the coati’s back, but you have no proof,” George said while looking down at the explosion’s aftermath.
“Never mind,” he said quickly.
“How did you survive?” Tom asked.
“I wrapped myself in wet toilet paper,” George said quickly.
“Uuuummmm… okay,” the others answered. After this remark, Frank and Eric appeared. But suddenly, the ground started shaking, then there was a rumbling noise, and another rift opened up and began its task of what seemed to be ripping the space-time fabric apart.
“Not again!” Frank groaned as he frantically dug his nails into a large stationary marshmallow “help!” he cried desperately. But no help came. Instead, the rift stopped devouring reality and began making a pulsing out waves of what seemed to be slime. Finally, it started to collapse in on itself and then, it was gone. Nothing was left of the monster rift except a small fluffy kitten sitting on a bee.
“AAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWW,” the fellowship remarked in unison. The kitten meowed. Suddenly, from out of blue the came another noise.
“What was that?” asked John, startled and anxious at the mysterious noise the seemed to be a laughing sound
“Don’t know,” replied Frank, looking up at the sky. “It seems to be coming from up there,” he said pointing at a particular part of the dark sky.
“There indeed… hahahaha” came the voice again. With it, came the appearance of a bright pink and yellow space ship out of the gloom.
“Wait, is that… that’s the spaceship that attacked us while we where on the coati’s neck!” Frank cried angrily “Come down here, whoever you are so I can punch you in the face!”
“That would not be wise,” cackled the voice, “I am stronger than all of you put together!”
“Oh really,” George snorted punching his metal fist into his reptilian one. “Bring it one!”
“Hahaha. Of course I will and when I through with you guys, you will be nothing but MY SLAVES!!” The voice squealed.
“Show yourself so we can get this over with.”
“OOOOOh… I will. But I’m going to show you my army first,” the laugh the voice, and the spaceship flew away. “So long, suckers…” were the last word the companions heard as the watched the spaceship disappear over the early morning horizon.
As it faded from view, the ground began to rumble again., “Seriously” Jake said, irritated. But after he spoke the ground erupted and 6 massive worms slithered out, followed by hordes and hordes of almost indescribable things, like goblin-worms and parasitic megalodons, fleshy troll like things, and a great amount of others.
“Uh oh,” said Eric, “not good, not good at all!”
“Should we run?” Jake asked nervously.
“Not an option. Look!” said George. While looking behind them at 2 fleshy bulbous things that looked like deformed brains slowly groping towards the company surrounded by more hordes demented creatures.
“What do we do?” Tom asked.
“Um, I guess we fight,” stated John, looking downcast as he loaded up his gun with a few random pigs that happened to be grazing in the next to the fellowship, “we fight till the end.”
“We are dead,” George whispered looking back at the army as he, too, loaded up his firearm and prepared to shoot. “Totally dead.”
“Maybe not!” said Tom, trying to be optimistic. “We might win?” but a small thought nagged at him in the back of his mind. Soon, the friends were prepared to face down this gargantuan army. With cries of ‘I’m going to die’ and ‘to be killed’ they ran to take the horde head on.
In hours the companions were wounded and near death but they kept fighting, dealing exploding pig, after exploding pig, after exploding pig. But suddenly a 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000-megaton pulse of energy vibrated from the center of the brawl, destroying everything in its path. Fortunately, the companions’ wounds dealt them good, for they fell to the ground unconscious, thus escaping the shockwave. Once they came back to consciousness, they saw an amazing sight. All around them littering the field of the battle was the fallen bodies of the enemy, now totally and utterly destroyed. But as their eyes wandered around the battlefield they saw something moving. As they strained to look closer, they made out a fluffy kitten, sitting licking it’s tiny paws.
“It’s him!” Frank cried in delight. “Should we keep him?”
“YES!!” his friends replied in union.
So Frank ran over, picked the kitten up fondly, and put him in a container on George’s back “I name you: THE KITTEN” he said.
“Where to now?”asked Jake, trying to change the subject, “should we go after that spaceship?”
“YYYYYYEEEEAAAAAAHHHHHH,” his friends yelled enthusiastically. So began the part of their journey with a mission, to find the spaceship and to capture whoever was inside…
