"Ribbon! What are you doing? We
need to leave NOW!" Kirby tried pushing past, but Ribbon blocked
him every time.
"Perhaps you are looking for this?" Ribbon held up a Star Rod
"Oh! Gimme!" Kirby reached for it, but Ribbon flew just out of
reach. "C'mon, Ribbon! Why won't you give it to me?"
"Don't you GET it, insolent young pudge ball? I am DARK MATTER!
You cannot hope to defeat me! I have DeDeDe, I just captured
Adeleine and Waddle Dee, and now I have Gooey! HAHAHA!" Ribbon
threw her head back and laughed.
"Wait a minute. You don't have Gooey," Kirby pointed out.
Ribbon stopped laughing. "Oh right." She pulled out a crystal
gun and shot Gooey. He immediately disappeared. "There we go.
All nice and Gooey- less." Ribbon resumed laughing.
"You can take the king, you can take my friends, but you can
NEVER take that fairy!" Kirby screamed and flew toward Ribbon,
foot outstretched. She took a shot with the crystal gun. Kirby's
eyes widened, then everything was white.
Kirby awoke. He was in a large black room, so large that he
couldn't see the roof or any of the walls. It didn't help that
the black blurred all of the boundaries. He turned. DeDeDe was
sitting up but with his eyes shut. Waddle Dee was lying with his
head propped up on DeDeDe's arm. Adeleine was turned so Kirby
saw her back. She was painting something with the little paint
she had. Gooey was sitting away from the others, trying to sit
as best he could. Kirby walked up behind Gooey and tapped him.
"Waddle Dee, I told you too-" Gooey turned. He smiled. "KIRRRBYYY!"
he screamed. The others turned around and looked. Adeleine was
first to run over, getting Kirby in a hug so hard, the puffball
was becoming more oval- shaped. Waddle Dee dashed to Kirby, also
hugging him. Finally, DeDeDe walked over and casually shook
"Oh guys! It's so good to see you! But we need to escape as soon
as possible. I'm assuming we're on Dark Star, since DeDeDe is
here. Let's work on an escape plan."
