Chapter 4: Showdown
"Me?" the criminal asked, "what do you mean, me?"
"The evidence is clear," said Luigi, "you hung on that support beam
first, dismantled it, then used it to bash Toad over the head!"
A unanimous gasp from the rest of the ones at the table sucked the
air from the room.
"We knew the criminal was left handed because of that note you left, you
know the sleeveless one."
"Those smears meant that your hand moved across the ink, smearing the
note. Only left hands do that as much as was smeared on the note."
"I'm not the only left handed one here!"
"It had to be a person small in size, such as... a woman," said
"Wario and DK are way too big to have gotten away from us through the
ducts," Luigi explained, "and you were able pass over the spot where the
structure was missing. Since I couldn't go over it and you could, that
means whomever it was had to be lightweight."
"Daisy," said Mario pointing his finger at the young woman, "it's the
end of the line."
Daisy's brow furrowed. She stood up on the table, her heel deep in
"That's right brothers," she began, "it was I. And you know what if I
had the chance I'd do it again!"
The tears once more began to flow like a river. The princess
approached her younger sister.
"Daisy," she sobbed, "how could you?"
"I was sick of all the time you spent with him," growled Daisy, "I
thought you were my best friend, Peach. And if I couldn't have you..." her
voice began to break, "...then neither could he!"
Daisy quickly leaned down and picked up the silver platter on the
table. She swung will all her might and made direct contact with Mario's
head. He fell to the floor. She threw the platter down and leaped off the
table. Her feet carried her through as she fled.
"Not on my watch," murmured Luigi. The chase was on.
Footsteps pattered through the hallway as Luigi chased Daisy.
"Run, run as fast as you can," Daisy taunted, "you can't catch me,
I'm murder woo-man!"
"Daisy, stop, this doesn't have to be this way!" Luigi called.
"Shut up!" she demanded before eying the fiery torch that lit the
Luigi ran as fast as he could to catch up with her but stopped when
she grabbed the torch and held it between herself and him.
The crazed look in her eyes scared Luigi, but he had to be brave.
"Nothing is gonna stop me!"
She threw the torch onto the ground. Luigi had no idea how the fire
started, but it engulfed the space between Daisy and himself.
"See ya!" said Daisy before beginning to run away again.
Luigi had no idea as to what to do. He knew he was desperately afraid
of fire, but he had to stop Daisy. He could see her climbing up into the
air duct from the broken spot.
A light bulb went of in his head at just that moment. Luigi darted
the other way.
He found the panel where he and Mario had fallen underground. The
stamped on the panel and entered quickly entered the sleeveless code into
the safe door. After it opened, he jumped into the duct.
Daisy fell from the duct onto the floor with a thud. She brushed
herself off as she stood up.
"Yes!" she whispered, "I knew I'd get away. Now I just gotta find a
"I don't think so Daisy."
She turned around only to see Luigi glaring in her direction. She
turned the other way. A dead end.
"Come with me..."
"Luigi! I...I...aw, man... I forgot my line!"
Luigi stuck his tongue out. "Aw, Dais..." He began to laugh.
"All right!" the director yelled into the loudspeaker, "again, from
Maybe the scene would go better next time.
