The New Year was here, my fungal infection was officially gone, and I was on the fourth treatment of six. Things were going great, as long as I kept myself preoccupied as much as possible.

 

TV did the trick for some of the day, as the usual Price is Right, Friends, Wheel/Jeopardy schedule couldn’t be broken, but I had to find creative ways to fill the rest– Aw, who am I kidding?! I had a freaking Gamecube now!

Ok, where’s that saw?

My legs were getting worse. I couldn’t stand up without that same unbearable pain shooting up and down my legs. I had to get into just the right position to be somewhat comfortable, even while hopped up on morphine.

I needed something to do; I was getting stir crazy and normal television wasn’t cutting it– hell even the PS2 wasn’t cutting it anymore. As much as I loved this new room, 864, there wasn’t anything to do.

CHAPTER FIVE

“Imprisoned”

Whooooooo-wheeeeeEEEEEEE! A small wooden end table in a stone room rattled as an oversized gold key hopped about on its dark brown top.

 

Hmph.”

 

Whoooooooooo-wheeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! The key shook violently on the table until it zipped off toward an unseen direction. The key tumbled and rolled in the air like a bicycle in a wind tunnel…

 

…that is until it sucked right into Kirby’s mouth. His eyes widened and his little stubby arms flapped as if he’s about to take flight. Continue reading

“The King and I”

Beep beep beep. BEEP BEEP BEEP. BEEP BEEP BEEP.

Mario’s oversized nose (full of hidden hair), twitched at the incessant alarm. He rolled over and smacked the snooze button and turned back to his side. Instead of a bed of linen, however, he rested on a bed of grass, which rubbed up against his disproportioned nose. His nostrils again twitched but this time due to the allergen. Aaaa…. AAAAA-CHOOOO!

CHAPTER THREE

“3 RD (Really Determined) Party Members”

Mario flipped backfirst with a THUD onto a crisp, vibrant plateau with myriad vegetation. Little woodland creatures scurried to get away by him. He sat up, rubbed his back, and assessed his location. Where am I? The Mushroom Kingdom? He got on one knee and brought himself to his feet. Continue reading

CHAPTER TWO

“The Dark Cloud”

Mario marched up his well-worn path to Bowser’s Castle. The grass never stood a chance for growth.

As he grew closer to his enemy’s abode, only a few Goombas and Thwomps appeared at all and instead of attempting to block his path, they just sat idly by. Continue reading

CHAPTER ONE

“The Mushroom Kingdom” 

An irritating chainsaw of a snore rattled throughout the walls of Princess Peach’s castle. Outside the window and down a silo of bricks, a set of small hands dug out weeds from around beautiful pink rose bushes. It was Toad! Or rather a Toad as four of them were tending to the Royal Garden.

The Toad nearest the roses winced at the relentless snore, and then finally shuddered. He slammed down his gardening tools and pulled out an iPod, shoved the earbuds into his mushroom cap, and drowned out the disgusting habit. Continue reading
