Dreamland: The aftermath of the ‘Kirby: Right back
at ya’ series.
In the year 2407, the Galaxy is at peace. Weeks
ago, an evil company, known as Nightmare Enterprises (N.M.E.),
was destroyed by a star warrior known as Kirby. Ever since
the defeat of N.M.E., there has been no chaos or danger in
the Echo Galaxy.
A strange-looking robot inside
a small asteroid-like ship was flying toward a planet know
as Ragestar, also known as Popstar.
“I should find another place to hide from the others,”
The robot said, turning his gravity thruster up a notch, “The
good doctor and most of his robot minions are probably dead
by now. Even though, I should at least escape from the rebels.
They make fun of me, too…wait what is that?”
The robot saw something floating
in space. It was a human-like android, wearing full red armor.
It has been in suspended animation for over 320 years. Damaged
parts of the armor indicate that the android had fought another
android and was defeated. Weapon failure on the android’s
giant fire-extinguisher-like jetpack probably was responsible
for the robot being thrown into space. A small hole at the
top of the android’s helmet, currently covered by a
hatch, indicated that a small, long flame came out of the
“Holy crap. Is that
Flamer?” The robot said to himself. He got closer to
get a better look. “It does look like him, but is it?
It’s no wonder master couldn’t retrace his blueprints…”
The robot decided to ignore
the android and flew straight to Popstar. “Now back
to what I was doing…” He murmured to himself.
It was a normal day on Popstar.
The sky was blue, the grass was green, no monsters were lurking
around, and, most of all, there wasn’t anyone who came
to ruin the day. Everyone just went on with his or her daily
There was a large castle just
North of Cappy town. On one of its balconies stood a giant
penguin-like creature. It was King DeDeDe, watching over the
Kingdom of Dreamland.
The King sighed. It’s
been almost a month since N.M.E. was destroyed. He thought
to himself. It’s a good thing, too. I was getting tired
of trying to kill Kirby. Seriously, what matters more, the
people, or the urge to kill a single little pink puffball?
Eh, it got a little tiring, anyway. I’m starting to
feel sorry for the little guy. Either way- what the!? King
DeDeDe looked up and saw a large, comet-like object slowly
falling down from the sky.
“What the bull!?”
DeDeDe shouted. “Since when did this come up!? Lowly
servants! Fetch me the meteor report!” Three waddle
dees ran up to the King and gave him a small hologram sheet.
DeDeDe pressed a button on the sheet and a large, newspaper-sized
screen was activated. Out of the screen popped out a schedule
for meteor and comet sightings.
“There ain’t supposed
to be no meteor sightings, today! I better check this out
on the telescope, ‘might as well get a closer look at
Meanwhile, back at Cappy town,
many of the people have found out about the strange meteorite.
Most of the population, made up of cappies, was outside, whispering
to each other and shouting the world was going to end. The
cappies crowded the entire town, all crammed together for
some reason. Behind the crowd stood a young, yellow-skinned,
human-like girl, Tiffany Black, age 8, along with a pink puffball,
Kirby, age unknown. They were both wondering why the entire
town was crowded and crammed.
“What the heck is going
on?” Tiff asked one of the cappies.
Many anonymous cappies replied
with words such as: “Meteor!”, “Comet!”,
and even “DOOM!” They were all panicking for a
relatively stupid reason.
“Hey, Kirby. Do you
think they’re all REALLY panicking over some sort of
meteorite or something?”
“Poyo?” Kirby replied.
“Why did I have to ask
The cappies started panicking
“Everyone shut up!”
Tiff shouted. The cappies all suddenly stopped for a moment
and looked at Tiff. “It’s just a meteorite, it’ll
most likely burn in the atmosphere, anyway!” Tiff continued.
“Most meteorites burn up when they enter the atmosphere.
Even if a meteorite comes crashing on the surface, there’s
only a small chance it will hit anyone.”
The cappies were whispering
to each other, probably trying to make sense out of what Tiff
just said. Suddenly, a large engine-like noise came from the
sky. The cappies started panicking, again.
Tiff sighed. “Why do
they never listen…” She looked up in the air.
For a minute she thought the meteorite was going to burn up
in the sky, but then she realized something. THAT’S
why all the cappies are panicking! Tiff thought. That isn’t
a meteorite, it’s an asteroid!!! The “asteroid”
was headed straight for the town! But that isn’t right.
The space station reported that there was not supposed to
be any asteroids heading this way…wait a second…
She looked closer at the “asteroid” and realized
again how small it was. Funny. That asteroid’s pretty
small… She was rather relaxed, now. She thought that
maybe the asteroid might not hit the town badly.
shouted at Tiff, “POYO, POYO!!!”
“Huh?” Tiff replied,
“What is it, Kirby?”
Tiff looked up in sky, but
it was too late. The “asteroid” was head straight
towards her and Kirby! They both ran for their lives, straight
out of town. The asteroid was catching up with them in a homing-missile
“And how is that thing
CHASING ME!!!” Tiff panicked.
The asteroid finally crashed
on the ground, making a large explosion on impact. Tiff and
Kirby got caught in the explosion and were sent flying 50
feet in the air, screaming. Right before they hit the ground,
some sort of force slowed down their fall. They both landed
on their feet and went toward the ruins of the asteroid.
“Wait,” Tiff wondered,
“why isn’t there a…crater?”
"Yeah, I was wondering,
too.” Kirby murmurred to himself.
At first, Tiff turned over
to Kirby, confused. I thought I heard something. Tiff thought.
Could it have been?… No, it couldn’t be.
“I wonder what’s
wrong with her?” Kirby murmured to himself, again.
What Tiff just heard took
her completely by surprise. She looked back at Kirby, shocked.
She fell silent for a few moments. The look on Tiff's face
was priceless; her pupils shrank and her jaw dropped. Then,
suddenly, she started talking. “What the! How did…
did you just… Speak?” She said, twitching.
“Huh? Something must
be bothering Tiff.” Kirby murmured.
Tiff replied. “Since… when can you speak English?”
Kirby looked at Tiff in disbelief,
then turned away. He seemed to be quite angry. “What
do you think I am, stupid?”
Tiff’s face looked confused.
“What do you mean?”
“You knew I could speak
English! You just ignore pretty much everything I said over
the past one-and-a-half years!”
“Said?” Tiff was
slightly freaked out. “Since when do you say anything?
I thought you could only speak poyo…”
Kirby was staring at Tiff
in disbelief. “And what kind of idiot do you take me
Kirby was confused for a moment.
At first, he though Tiff was trying to make an excuse for
ignoring everything he said. Suddenly, he realized Tiff might
be telling the truth. Though it barely made sense, it might
bring up a point why nobody else in Dreamland replied to anything
he said, obviously except for words like ‘okay’
or ‘yes’. When thinking about this, he thought
of something. Wait…is that why she kept calling me a
baby? I thought she was stupid or something. Kirby thought.
Suddenly, a large hatch opened
out of the small asteroid. Out of the asteroid came a strange
looking robot. It had full greenish-colored armor around it,
a bear-eared helmet, tiny glowing red eyes, and a large UFO-like
sphere that’s replaced legs. The robot hovered around
the asteroid a bit.
“Oh dear, oh dear, oh
dear, my ship is broken!!!” The robot exclaimed constantly.
“Uh, who the heck are
you?” Kirby asked the robot.
“What? Oh, my, there’s
intelligent life on this planet! What an unexpected…uh…unexpectancy?”
Soon enough, by the robot’s
surprise, a giant crowd of cappies was surrounding him.
“Oh dear, oh dear, oh
dear.” The robot kept saying to himself hesitatingly.
“Eh? You look like you haven’t been surrounded
by a crowd, before.” Kirby said. All of a sudden, the
cappies look at Kirby. They whisper to each other about several
things, mostly about how Kirby could talk.
“Them, too?” Kirby
whispered to Tiff.
“Yeah,” Tiff replied
in a straight voice, “I don’t think they’ve
heard you talk before, either.”
“Hello? I’m in
trouble, here!” The robot said. “I don’t
think I can take this anymore! I have stage fright! I repeat:
I HAVE STAGE FRIGHT!!! AAAGGGHHHH!!!”
wrong with you?” Kirby said. “I’ve been
“Hey, Mr. Robot,”
Tiff said, “Just think about what you would do in a
situation like this.”
don’t know…err…I know!” The robot
A second later, the robot flies five feet into the air and
wave his arms out. He puts his body into a brave, muscular
stance and looks at the cappies like a superhero looks at
a common villain.
“I come in peace!” The robot shouted out to the
thousands of cappies surrounding his ship. “I have come
to this planet to seek out intelligent life! I am AstroBlaze
of the planet Hadukes!”
Wait a second. Tiff thought. There’s no such thing as
the planet Hadukes.
“He obviously made that up.” Kirby whispered to
“Why would he do that?” Tiff replied.
The cappies were all satisfied, of course. AstroBlaze kept
talking and shouting to them all about how great he was and
how he was sent to find intelligent life in the universe.
“I guess he’s having fun.” Tiff and Kirby
said to each other at the same time.
In a few days, AstroBlaze had already been the new talk of
the town. Everyone seemed impressed by his heroic stories
of his “brave acts”. Everyone seemed to think
him as a new hero. That is, except for a certain talking penguin.
King DeDeDe was on his castle balcony again, looking through
his binoculars. He saw AstroBlaze surrounded by a large crowd,
acting out a scene from one of his stories. King DeDeDe was
furious. He couldn’t understand exactly who this “AstroBlaze”
really was. He paced around the balcony, thinking to himself.
Well I’ll be damned. He thought. Already three days
and he’s the talk of the town. But still, he doesn’t
look much like a warrior. Heck, I could even say he’s
a fraud! A fake! It’s got to be all a joke! Bah, whom
am I kidding? I’ll never be able to convince the town
that he’s lying to them! Or maybe… King DeDeDe
grinned. I know someone they’ll listen to… King
DeDeDe snickered. But that’ll have to wait.
King DeDeDe went to the throne room and sat on his chair.
He pressed a series of buttons on the right arm keypad. The
throne room dimmed in light and a large monitor screen appeared
behind the throne chair. The throne chair turned around to
face the monitor. From the monitor screen came a pair of red
eyes, the rest of the screen dark.
“Your majesty, what a surprise.” The voice said.
“Silence, Wizard, you’re back in business,”
King DeDeDe replied, “I need you to summon the closest
mechanical object from space and bring it crashing down to
the surface. No questions asked.”
“You reasons, sire?”
“I said no questions asked.”
“As you wish, your majesty.” The voice fell silent
and the transmission turned off.
Whatever comes crashing to the surface, it better be a good
enough distraction. King DeDeDe thought. Last time it was
The monitor disappeared; the throne chair turned back to its
original position, and the throne room light went back on.
By the King’s surprise, barging into the room came his
secondhand man, Escargoon, an ugly snail-like creature.
“Your majesty!” Escargoon said. “There’s
another giant meteorite heading towards Popstar!”
Just in time. DeDeDe thought.
The distraction is ready. This I got to see.
replied, “tell the troops to wait at the possible landing
site for this ‘meteorite’. I have to take care
of some unfinished business.”
“Yes, sire.” Escargoon
replied in a straight tone, and left the throne room.
Meanwhile, In Cappy Town, AstroBlaze was currently the center
of attention. He was in the middle of the town, surrounded
by about 20 or so cappies. They were all listening to another
one of his remarkable and heroic intergalactic stories.
After the Ferimus ran out
of energy, I swiftly biyach-slapped him and thrust both my
rapiers into his chest.” AstroBlaze explained to the
cappies. “He cursed my name and fell to the ground.
The other Ferimi were just staring at me, noting that I just
killed the Echo Galaxy’s most vicious and most dishonorable
warrior. I shouted to them: ‘Citizens of this planet!
I have killed what gave you a horrible reputation! You can
now live without being feared!’ After that, I left the
planet in search for more intelligent life.”
“What was the name of
that planet, again?” Shouted an anonymous cappy.
On the other side of town,
Tiff and Kirby walked through the crowded streets. They were
both walking quite fast.
“Hurry up,” Tiff
said to Kirby, “we’ve got to get to that other
“Why are we doing this,
again?” Kirby replied.
“Nobody else notices
the meteor, Kirby. Now c’mon!”
“What if it’s
another UFO?” Kirby asked Tiff. “Should we really
take the risk of death, again?”
“We’ll have to,
Kirby and Tiff finally got
out of the crowded town and ran towards a large empty part
of the grassy plains. They stopped for a moment.“
The meteor should be headed
straight towards this direction.” Tiff said.
“Are you absolutely
sure this is the correct thing to do right now, Tiff?”
“If you don’t
want King DeDeDe to come first, then yes.” Tiff replied.
Suddenly, they hear a voice
far from their right.
“Hey, idiots, we’re
already there.” Said a familiar voice. Tiff and Kirby
turned to their right and saw a rather smaller group of waddle
dees, fully armed. Their commander, Waddle Doo, was standing
watch over them.
“You fools. The meteorite’s
going to crash over here, not over there!” Waddle Doo
screamed loud enough for Tiff and Kirby to hear. Neither of
Kirby whispered to Tiff, “how do you think they got
over here so fast?”
Before Tiff could reply, AstroBlaze and a large group of cappies
came out of nowhere and surrounded Tiff and Kirby.
“Pardon me, but why
are you two in these grasslands?” AstroBlaze said.
“Well, excuse me,”
Tiff replied, “but the meteor is most likely going to
missy. And do you really want to die again? You should at
least keep a good distance from that thing like the waddle
AstroBlaze looked up at the
giant meteorite in the sky. “Now do you really want
to die? Like you almost did three days ago, along with the
little pink guy?”
“Wait a minute!”
Tiff started to get furious. “How did you know that
the meteor was-“
“Knock it off!!!”
“You’re not as smart as they say.”
“You’re not as
heroic as you claim!”
AstroBlaze and the cappies
all gasped at the same time. “How dare you say that
to me, the greatest warrior in the Galaxy!!!” AstroBlaze
replied with extreme anger.
Tiff and AstroBlaze were staring
at each other angrily. Suddenly, Kirby pushed Tiff out of
the center of the crowd.
“Watch out!” Kirby
exclaimed. Kirby and Tiff starting running away from the crowd.
The meteorite crashed in the
dead center of the crowd, barely missing AstroBlaze. The impact
made a large explosion, covering everyone in soot. A blinding
smokescreen came from the crash area. For a second, everyone
was frightened by the sudden crash. Unusually, the meteor’s
impact didn’t make a crater. Everyone just looked straight
at the meteor, thus came a moment of silence.
Strangely enough, AstroBlaze
was the only one who wasn’t surprised from the meteor.
Once the smokescreen faded out, everyone was shocked. In the
center of the crowd laid a large, human-like android, wearing
full red armor. The robot had a pair of giant fire extinguishers
on his back. There was a small hole on its head, covered by
a hatch. Everyone just looked at the robot.
“What is that thing?”
Tiff murmured, covered severely in dirt. “Is that a…human?”
“That’s no human,”
AstroBlaze replied without hesitation. “That’s
an android. An extremely advanced android.”
“How do you automatically
know it’s a robot?” Kirby asked AstroBlaze, angrily.
“I know this guy.”
AstroBlaze turned his back to the android. “Perhaps
I should explain later.”
Suddenly, when AstroBlaze
turned forward to the crash site, he saw the android standing
up. The hatch on top of the android’s helmet opened
and a small, long flame came out of his head. The android’s
eyes opened up. He looked around its surroundings. His eyes
ALL PERISH IN FLAMES!!!” The android exclaimed.
“Whoa, calm down, you
fool!” AstroBlaze said to the android.
The android looked at AstroBlaze.
“YOU.” He replied.
“Hey, hey, hey, wait
“Where is the master?”
hate to break it to you, but…he…err…died.”
“WHAT! MASTER IS DEAD!?
AstroBlaze covered up the
android’s mouth. “-Wireneskivok!” He shouted
The android slapped AstroBlaze’s
hand out of his mouth. “How the hell did he die?”
“Wait a minute, let’s
not talk about this in front of the crowd-“
AstroBlaze looked around and
saw that everyone was slowly backing away, making an even
larger gap in the middle.
Suddenly, Tiff came out of
the crowd. “Who are you?”
“My codename is Burner,
but my comrades call me Flamer.”
an anonymous cappy, “What kind of name is that?”
“We all have stupid
names.” AstroBlaze said. “That’s obvious.”
“Ha-ha! What a fool.”
Flamer said to AstroBlaze. “Master always considered
you the biggest coward of them al-“
my ways!” AstroBlaze replied angrily.
“Yeah, right. You’re
a big freaking cowar-“
“Knock it off, meani-
err, I mean…back off, foolish android!” AstroBlaze
started posing heroically, again.
“What in the blue monkey
glitch are you doing, loser?” Suddenly, the surrounding
crowd stared directly at Flamer. They all stared shouting
angrily at him.
“How dare you say that
to such as hero!” Shouted an anonymous cappy.
“Yeah, you should be
ashamed!” Shouted another.
“What the bull are people
talking about! This guy’s a total loser!”
Oh, crap. AstroBlaze thought.
I got to think of something to say about this. Something…heroic!
“It’s the year
2407, you idiot! You’ve been in suspended animation
in space for over 320 years!”
Flamer seemed surprised. “Holy
crap. I’ve been put out for that long? Sheesh, no wonder
everyone looks like a mushroom without the cap.”
“Excuse me,” Tiff
interrupted. “But not everyone one this planet is a
Flamer looked at Tiff. “Ha-ha,
I didn’t know Zhangas, little knee-less humans, lived
on Sender Z!”
“This is Popstar, not
“Eh? Those spikes threw
me further in the air than I thought.”
Flamer looked at the crowd.
“Heheh, long story. You see I was assigned by my master
in the year 2083 to burn down this extremely hazardous forest,
you see. He needed the vacant space to build a large industrial
area so he could create a robotic army faster-“
“Shut up! SHUT UP!”
AstroBlaze replied. “He was NEVER that evil!”
“Of course he wasn’t,
fool. He was just in another alignment as everyone else!”
“Wait,” Tiff asked,
“EVIL? Are you telling me your master was evil!?”
“Evil? Negative! He
was just trying to bring order to Sender Z! What we were doing
replied, “I realized it was wrong after his death. I
headed out on my own in search of a more peaceful planet.
But lately, I’ve been crashing into all these violent
“I knew it!” Tiff
interrupted. “There was no such thing as planet Hadukes!”
AstroBlaze twitched. “I
can explain that.” AstroBlaze replied, sweating with
said, confused. “What the heck have you been teaching
Kirby interrupted. “If anyone would turn to where I’m
facing, you’ll see an ARMY OF WADDLE DEES!!!”
Suddenly, everyone turned
in Kirby’s direction and saw a gargantuan group of waddle
dees, fully armed with spears and crossbows. There were also
several medium-sized tanks crammed into the frontlines. King
DeDeDe was in his 1940’s-ish open roof car, leading
“Looks to me like we’ve
got yet another robot.” King DeDeDe said.
“Watch you mouth, penguin.”
Flamer threatened at DeDeDe. “Or you’ll be the
next Kentucky Fried entrée.”
King DeDeDe laughed. “Out
of my way, fool. Where’s the so-called ‘hero’?”
“Oh, you mean AstroBlaze?” Flamer replied. “He’s
right behind me.” AstroBlaze was behind Flamer, slowly
King DeDeDe snickered. “Attack
the robot!” He shouted to the waddle dees.
Without hesitation, the tanks
started firing straight at Flamer.
“Wait, wait, wait! I
meant the other robot, you idiots!” King DeDeDe screamed
at the tanks.
The cappies all started panicking
and many ran out of the line of fire. After the tanks stopped
firing, a large smokescreen covered the line of fire.
“Hey!” Tiff exclaimed
from the panicked crowd. “You could of settled that
when there were no civilians in the radius!”
King DeDeDe looked at the
crowd. “I apologize for that, fellow citizens.”
King DeDeDe said to the cappies. “Such an event won’t
happen in the future. I’ll make sure of it.”
The cappies were whispering
to each other angrily. They were all complaining about what
King DeDeDe had just done.
After the smokescreen faded,
everyone was surprised. Flamer was still standing, not damaged
whatsoever. By the looks of it, he was rather ticked off.
God damn it. King DeDeDe thought. Just flipping’ perfect.
Yep, I’m royally screwed.
Flamer snickered. “My
turn.” He said. A second later, the air temperature
started rising. Flamer’s fingers on both hands each
extended a long, torch-like flame. A split second later, his
entire left hand was on fire. He was staring directly at King
DeDeDe. He breathed in deeply. “BURNING TIME!!!”
He shouted. All of a sudden, raging flames bursting from Flamer’s
hands surrounded the land around the army. The waddle dees
started scattering, trying to get out of the flames.
King DeDeDe was screaming
for his life. He’s been caught in burning situations
like this, before, but he’s never been caught in a fire
this scorching hot. Yet, for some reason, he was grinning.
Arrgghh!!! King DeDeDe thought. That was the distraction!
Blame it on the forsaken troops!
The cappies just stood and
watched from a distance as the waddle dees and King DeDeDe
were haplessly caught in the flames. Kirby was smiling, wondering
what the King was feeling at that very second. He turns his
head to Tiff. “You think the fat guy deserves this kind
of punishment?” He asked Tiff.
For some reason, Tiff looked
like she was feeling some sort of pain. “Kirby,”
Tiff replied, “something’s…wrong…with
me…” She was groaning lightly as if she had a
replied. “Are you okay?”
Tiff had both her hands on
her chest. To her, the ache was unimaginable. She couldn’t
exactly point out where it was coming from. Soon, she fell
to the ground and blacked out
Tiff woke up a few hours later to find herself in the hospital.
She saw Kirby sitting next to he bed, looking at her.
“Thank goodness you’re
awake.” Kirby said to Tiff. “I almost thought
you’d be in a coma.
Tiff got out of the bed immediately
and ran towards the exit. “We’ve got to find those
two robots!” Tiff said.
Kirby replied, “the doctor will be back, soon.”
“There’s no time,
Kirby! I’ll explain later!”
Tiff and Kirby ran out of
town and back to the crash site. They saw Flamer and AstroBlaze,
staring angrily at each other eyes from a distance. AstroBlaze
was the angrier of the two, his eyes on fire. The whole field
was silent, until Tiff spoke out.
“Hey, Mr. Flamer!”
Tiff exclaimed. “How did you manage to humiliate King
DeDeDe's entire army!”
Flamer turned his head to
Tiff. “You’ve must have been hit on the head pretty
hard, kid,” Flamer replied. “King DeDeDe’s
perfectly okay. He’s just been knocked into the sky.
Your little friend told me it happens all the time in these
“No need to play dumb,
kid. You know DeDeDe is used to that kind of torture, don’t
he’s still alive.”
For a second, Tiff seemed
confused. She was curious about what happened while she was
unconscious. “This entire series of events…”
Tiff mumbled. “The strangest thing is…you, Kirby.”
Tiff thought about what happened to Kirby three days ago.
She was so confused about that recent event that she couldn’t
worry about anything else. She was trying to get the message,
somehow; she couldn’t figure out what Kirby meant by
‘Never replying’ to any of the things he said
over the past year and a half. She tried to get the picture
in her head, but she couldn’t manage to put it in perfectly.
For some reason, Kirby was
able to read Tiff’s mind. “I don’t understand
any of it, either.” Now he was confused. Over the past
three days people have been whispering behind Kirby’s
back every time he walked through the town. They’d whisper
things such as: ‘How did he learn to talk?’ or:
‘DeDeDe’s obviously behind all this,’ sometimes
it was: ‘That Kirby could talk the whole time? What
kind of fools does he take us for?'. Kirby couldn’t
seem to understand the concept. He could talk perfectly since
before he was put in status and launched out into deep space
to await his awakening. He didn’t know why everyone
acted so strange around him after he crash-landed on Popstar.
“Nobody listened to me, back then.” Kirby murmured.
“Everyone thought I was an infant.”
“Everyone gets confused
once in a while.” Flamer said. “Your king isn’t
as perfect as the King! The Robot King!”
Tiff stopped thinking for
a moment. “Robot king?” She asked Flamer with
AstroBlaze was getting nervous
again and tried to run over to Flamer and shut his mouth.
Unfortunately, Flamer caught his arm and broke it off. He
threw the arm at AstroBlaze and missed. Suddenly, the two
robots started fighting. AstroBlaze kept throwing energy blasts
and Flamer while Flamer was blocking them with his burning
“Will you two stop it!”
Tiff interrupted. “You’re both acting like a bunch
of idiots! You don’t have to fight over doubt!”
“I can’t let the
identity of my former master be mentioned!” AstroBlaze
replied while fighting Flamer.
“King is dead!” Flamer replied to AstroBlaze.
“I don’t have a reason to fight the humans now
that he’s dead!”
“I was talking about master Wily…” AstroBlaze
stopped fighting and realized what he just said. “CURSES!!!
I JUST SAID IT!!! I’M RUINED!!! RUINED!!!”
“Wily?” Flamer stopped fighting and thought for
a moment. “Who the hell is Wily?”
“Oh, yeah, I forgot. You never knew him.”
“The only master I knew was the Robot King. I don’t
know this ‘Wily’ you’re talking about.
AstroBlaze calmed down. “Never mind, then.”+
Flamer looked at Tiff and
snickered. “And by the way: How long has this land’s
King been corrupt?”
Tiff sat on the ground and
looked into the sky. “He’s ruled this land for
over three centuries. About a year ago he somehow turned corrupt
and thought about nothing but killing Kirby. It’s only
been a few months since he turned back to normal.”
“Normal? Then why did
he attack me?”
AstroBlaze has furious. “Because
he meant to attack me! Good lord, he’s the only one
who realized my true identity! I can’t allow myself
to stay here anymore or else I’m toast! I’m better
off on the other side of this planet.”
“I wouldn’t do
that if I were you.” Tiff replied. “The other
side of this planet is not as peaceful. Rumors say an empire
ruled by an evil Dragon-Turtle hybrid is trying to gain control
“Bah, I’ll teach
them a lesson they’ll never forget!” AstroBlaze
ran off into the sky. AstroBlaze stopped and turned back for
a moment. “And by the way, I apologize for anything
I’ve done over the past few days! Tell everyone I went
to the other side of this planet!” AstroBlaze turned
back around and flew back into the sky.
“I’ll tell them!”
Tiff shouted to AstroBlaze.
“I hope he realizes
what he’s doing.” Flamer said. “I really
hope he knows how powerful that ‘rumored kingdom’
is. I guess ‘Mr. Protagonist’ is going to have
fun.” Flamer snickered.
Kirby and Tiff laughed as
“Looks like I’m
stuck here for the next few years. I’ll have to get
used to it.” Flamer murmured to himself.
“I’m pretty sure
you’ll get used to it,” Kirby replied while smiling,
“just don’t burn anything or kill anyone, unless
it’s a monster.”
