Battling the Red Dragon
The dragon towered over me, its roar ripping the air apart. It spread its huge wings as it lowered its head to stare down right at me.
"Impressive," I teased. The dragon snorted at me, its hot breath kicking up a wind. I could see small spits of fire rising out of its nostrils.
"You don't belong here, monster," I said to it, "and if you won't leave this Star Hill, I'll have to make you."
The dragon seemed like he could understand me, as his mouth curled into something that resembled a sinister smile. He raised his front paw up in the air and took a huge swipe at me. I stepped quickly away and his claws dug into the ground, scattering rocks everywhere.
I hoped this form was agile. I charged up to the dragon and smacked it in the jaw, its head flying back in surprise. He quickly swung again, and I rolled out of the way behind him, where he tripped me with his tail. It certainly did smart.
It was kind of hard to right myself back up, but eventual
Keeping the Balance Part 3 - SMBImmediately he felt something wasn't right. The presence in the hallway had all but vanished. The stillness he was left in was the sort ambushes were launched in. Yet no matter how long he waited, nothing attacked him.Keeping the Balance Part 3 - SMB by ~SmashQueen
It was the humming that caught him. Then the sound of movement above. He rushed back to the stairwell, mindful of the mice and potential foes, and stormed up the stairs to the third floor, the last landing the well would go. He slowed down long enough not to barrel into the door, listening carefully with one side of his head close to it.
From the other side, he could hear a woman singing in unison with a man. She - an elegant pitch; he - squeaky, hoarse, and not entirely on-key. Geno opened the door and he caught a glimpse of green disappearing around a corner.
"Luigi?" he asked, more to himself than the stranger before running down the hall. Around the bend, a rickety ladder stretched into a hole in the ceiling.
The attic. No place left to go.
Geno climbed up the ladder
Keeping the Balance Part 2 - SMBSoon enough what good feelings he had were shoved back in favor of his objective. On the stony path once more, he ambled up to the rusted fence with more than a few health food items in his pack this time for when he came upon any of his former companions. Dead plants and trees were scattered beyond the gate intermixed with lively weeds and wily vines. The breeze murmured of a promise to bring all comers to another plane; an unwanted invitation to all, not just one who hailed from the stars. A sensation of being observed wove around him, and although he concentrated, he could still --Keeping the Balance Part 2 - SMB by ~SmashQueen
-- feel their eyes on him as he made his way through the town, their gaze unwavering from every window. They knew - they knew - and it was only a matter of time before the facade broke and they attacked. Mallow was oblivious, Toadstool was worried, and Bowser didn't care, but Mario was at least a little suspicious. None of them understood and no one could --
-- sense that they were aware of
Keeping the Balance Part 1 - SMBThere wasn't much to occupy the wooden toy as it made its way through the overgrown foliage. The whisperings of wishes were replaced by the hooting of owls, peace was abandoned instead for the scritching and scratching of the creatures that lived in the woods, and the glittering lights of the stars were blocked out by the dense canopy. Long before this point, any sane person would have abandoned the hidden paths, creaking branches, and suspicious trees of the forest and opted to go home, perhaps even make some hot cocoa. But this was not the determination of a person, but rather a spirit. Not born of decay, he hailed from above, following the orders of a higher authority.Keeping the Balance Part 1 - SMB by ~SmashQueen
And he never would have imagined that this would be the way he finally got to set foot on the surface of the world again: trekking through a haunted forest, alone with only a carrier bag strapped to his waist. His destination: a strange mansion in need of investigating, where a snag had been hit and no amount of subtl
