The famous Vlad Masters stood in his labratory, working on some sort of new project. He had been working on it for quite some time.
He had rings beneath his dark eyes and, a few strands of silver hair had come undone from his ponytail.
Soon, the second ghost hybrid would join him. Danny would stand by Vlad as they ruled over the world, and eventually, so would his beloved, Maddie. Of course, he would take things one step at a time. Once the boy came, so would Maddie.
Vlad walked over to the icebox and opened the lid. Wisps of white smoke escaped from their cold confinement. With gloved hands he pulled out a vial that held an orange liquid.
Walking back to the table, he grasped a graduated cylinder that was half full of black goo and an eyedropper. Placing the eye dropper in the vial, he extracted only a few cenimeters from the glass container. He needed only seven drops of the orange liquid in order for it to have it's desired effect. Vlad positioned the eyedropper over the cylinder and squeezed it's rubber end.
One... Two. Three.
He squeezed harder.
Four. Five Six.
His hand shook.
Seven Eight Nine Ten.
"Curses!" Vlad growled. Hopefully, the amount of liquid wouldn't effect the formula too much.
He smiled widely as the concoction slowly turned from black, to a bright, neon purple.
The villian chuckled lightly at the effects of his new syrum. Not being able to hold it in any longer, he let out a roar of laughter, "HAHAHAHAHAHAHA--!"
His long maniacal laughter, was cut short by a new arrival through his ghost portal.
"Did I interupt something?" Skulker asked Vlad. Vlad gave a slight cough and cleared his throat, "No, just exercising the lungs... Come in."
Skulker lifted a non-existant eyebrow, but complied and walked over to Vlad.
"This is the new syrum," Vlad informed the inflamed headed ghost. He pulled out a large syringe and placed some of the concoction within it, "This should do the trick."
Vlad capped the syringe and handed it to Skulker, "Be sure that every drop is within his system." Skulker nodded his head in response and placed the syringe inside of his pants pocket.
"Do not fail Skulker...," Vlad said menacingly while Skulker left back through the portal.
The next day.
The birds were singing. The sun was shining. Random people on the other side of the world, were dying from starvation. And three teens, Danny, Sam, and Tucker, were leisurely walking to school that morning and were deeply engaged in conversation.
"Today seems like a perfect day, don't you think?" Sam asked cheerfully.
"Why are you so happy?" Tucker asked his gothic friend when he finally looked up from his PDA, "Your supposed to be the pessimistic and sarcastic one in this group"
Danny rolled his baby blue eyes, "She's just happy because she's protesting against animal testing today."
"Animals have rights too!" Sam said loudly, "They shouldn't have to go through all that torture, just because buisnesses need something to use their hair products on before selling it!"
"How do you even 'know' that their testing on animals?" Tucker asked his enviromental friend.
Sam fumed, "Are you doubting me?"
Tucker held a hand up, "It's not that! It's just that your protesting will prove useless if you don't have proof."
"I have proof!" Sam yelled loudly.
There was a pregnant silence.
"..." Everyone stood quietly, waiting for another to speak.
Sam was the first to state something, "Well... I don't have any... yet," she admitted.
"Then how do know that their testing on animals?" Tucker asked Sam. Danny was standing in the sidelines. He felt that the argument was just between Sam and Tucker.
Sam put on a knowing smirk, "Because I saw a buisness guy walk into the building with two dogs when the sign on the door clearly said: ANIMALS ARE NOT ALLOWED WITHIN THE BUILDING," Sam informed and folded her arms in satisfaction.
Tucker shrugged his shoulders, dropping the conversation, and returned to his PDA.
"Hey Danny, maybe you could fly into their building and check to see if they are testing on animals," Sam suggested with a pleading smile.
"Can't," Danny said as Sam's smile dropped, "At least not right now, I don't want to risk being late for class, again." Sam sighed in defeat.
"Well, how abou-," Sam cut herself off when she saw blue mist escape from Danny's mouth.
"Aw crud," Danny said disdainfully and ducked into a nearby alley, "Going ghost!" Danny shouted as he lifted his arms. A ring appeared around his waist and split in two. Both rings moved through out his body to change him into his alter ego, Danny Phantom.
As Danny Phantom, he flew upwards into the sky, in order to get a bird's eye view. However, this didn't help him very much, since the ghost was invisible and behind Danny.
The ghost turned visible and was about to reach for the hybrid ghost, but Sam called out to Danny before he could catch him.
"Danny! Look out!" Sam yelled to her friend.
Danny immediately flew out of reach and faced the ghost.
"Skulker!" Danny looked at the ghost hunter, "If your coming for my pelt, then you have another thing coming!" Danny cried out and fired a few ectoplasmic beams at Skulker.
Skulker easily dodged, "I'm not here for your pelt. I'm here to do my job Ghost Child," Skulker stated and flew towards Danny. He then fired at net at him by using one of the many launchers on his arm.
Danny turned intangible, thinking that he could phase through the net. This was not the case though. Instead it did what it was made to do. Which was to trap Danny and cause him to sail through the air and crash to the ground very, very painfully.
"What is this?" Danny asked Skulker from within the net, "Why can't I phase through?"
Skulker smiled as he descended to the ground, "It's a new net that I developed. Do you like it?"
Ignoring the question Danny demanded, "Let me go!"
In turn, Skulker ignored Danny's demand and pulled out a syringe that held a purple liquid.
Danny's eyes widened. He wasn't really scared of needles, but one that was that big and held by his enemy, was something to be scared of.
Tucker and Sam were watching the event and decided to take action. Sam reached into her book bag and pulled out the Fenton Batterang(sp?). She threw it at Skulker with all of her strength and it successfully hit him on the head. It didn't seem to do him any damage though, but it did tick him off enough to pick it up and toss it back to her.
It hit Sam in the stomache and sent her flying into Tucker. The two were knocked down by the impact.
"Sam! Tucker!" Danny yelled in worry and tried to escape from his imprisonment so that he could help them.
Skulker turned back to Danny and uncapped the needle that was still in his hand. "Stay still," Skulker commanded the ghost child and pinned him down.
"OW!" Danny screamed when he felt the needle pierce the skin of his neck, "Stop it!" he said as he felt the contents of the syringe spill into his body.
After a few moments, Skulker finally finished and stood from his former position with a smirk on his face.
"What did you put in me?" Danny asked as he rubbed his sore neck.
"You'll find out soon enough," he said and flew off into the distance.
A few moments past and Sam sat up from the ground, "Owwww...," she groaned.
"Are you guys alright?" Danny asked as he reverted back to his human form and tried to break free from the net. He still couldn't get out though.
"I think I broke something," Sam said slowly, "But at least I landed on something soft."
"Get off of me!" Tucker yelled from beneath Sam and shoved her off his stomache. She landed with a 'plop' beside him.
"Oops...," Sam muttered, but it was loud enough for the others to hear.
"What?" Danny and Tucker asked at the same time.
Sam held up the two broken pieces of the batterang as she rubbed her sore belly.
Tucker and Danny felt their jaws drop. The batterang was thrown with enough force to knock Sam and Tucker down and break in half, but all it did to Sam was give her a sore stomache.
Sam saw the looks that her friends were giving her, "What?" she asked and they just shook their heads. She rolled her eyes, "Tucker, help me free Danny," she said.
Tucker and Sam helped Danny out from the net.
"What happened to Skulker?" Tucker asked Danny, "It's not like him to leave his 'prey'," Tucker said while putting enphasis on the 'prey' part.
Danny rubbed his neck again, "He gave me a shot and just left," Danny answered.
"What was the shot for?" Sam asked. Tucker cut in, "Maybe he was playing doctor."
"He didn't say," Danny said ignoring Tucker's suggestion.
"Do you feel any different?" Sam asked her friend.
"No, but the shot he gave me left a bruise," Danny replied and turned his head, so that they could see the darkened skin left on his neck.
Tucker broke out into a laugh. "What's so funny?" Danny asked Tuck.
Tucker pointed at Danny's neck before shouting, "It looks like a hickey!"
Sam snorted while Danny frowned. "Yes, that's right Tucker, tell it to the world," Danny said sarcastically.
Tucker only laughed harder at this comment.
Sam frowned, "Okay Tucker, you can shut up now."
Tucker managed to calm himself.
"Well, I guess we better go before we're late for class," Tucker said right before they heard the school bell ring from down the street, "I just jinxed it, didn't I?" Tucker asked with a sigh.
"We're late!" Sam and Danny yelled at the same time and took off while Tucker quickly followed after.
"This is the third time this week that the three of you have been tardy," Mr. Lancer, the English teacher, informed his students.
Tucker, Sam, and Danny winced at the tone of his voice as they sat in their usual seats, "Now I'll give you two options 1) I can call your parents and inform them of this or 2) I can assign you detention for each day that you have been tardy this week. Which will it be?" Lancer asked the three.
The three teens shot up their hands at the same time and cried, "Detention!"
Mr. Lancer growled, "Fine," he mumbled and walked over to his desk so that he could begin class. The other students in the classroom snickered at the event.
"Turn your textbooks to page four hundred and three," Lancer told his pupils, "This story is titled 'The Pond' and is written by I. C. Canibals. This is the scariest story in the entire textbook, and since I know that teens love things of horror, I expect all of you to pay 'attention'," Lancer emphasized the word 'attention' when he turned his head to Danny. Danny managed to catch the look and sat up straight in his desk.
Dash, who was sitting behind Danny, poked his shoulder.
"Is that a hickey?" Dash asked the agitated teen. Danny scowled and turned back around in his seat. "How come Fenton gets some action and I don't?" Dash asked himself. Danny rolled his eyes, that stupid shot was giving stupid people ideas.
"We will be reading this story outloud," a few students groaned in protest, "Baxter, since you seem to enjoy hearing your voice, please begin," Lancer asked the blonde jock.
Dash sighed. He really hated English class, it was so stupid and pointless. Plus, there were to many big words involved.
" 'Hey, David,' said a light skinned, blonde girl to a dark headed boy. 'Hey Liz,' replied David.' The two were a-adverage," Dash studdered, he was really bad at pronoucing really hard words, ", adverage students at Socheezie High. Liz was in the chess club and David was football player. "
Danny raised an eyebrow at the sentence within the textbook. Hopefully, the football player would get killed or something.
" They were also boyfriend and girlfriend. It was on this day that David asked Liz a serious question. 'Hey listen, I heard of this romantic spot out in the forest and I was wondering if you would like to come along with me tonight,' David asked his girlfriend," Dash could feel himself ready to gag, he hated stories that had romance in them. Sam felt as though she could burst with joy, not only was this a horror story but it also had some romance.
" 'Sure,' said Liz, 'Just let me get my flashlight, and we can go there right now!' Liz said, she was really excited. 'Cool,' David replied as the two climbed into his truck and sped on their way," Dash said.
"That's enough for you Baxter," Mr. Lancer said, "Fenton, you take over," Dash sighed in relief.
Danny continued from where Dash left off, " The two teenagers arrived at the forest and began walking down a dirt path until they came to a large pond that shimmered in the moonlight above," Danny read. He didn't know why, but for some strange reason he wanted a cookie. A large, chocolate chip cookie. Danny shook the thought out of his mind and continued to read.
" The two stopped at the pond, taking in the moment. Something suddenly broke the surface of the pond. The thing looked foul and decayed and it almost looked like a person- Can I have a cookie?" Danny suddenly said and then clamped his mouth shut with his hands. Sam inwardly groaned, it was just starting to get good. Everyone else looked at Danny with curious eyes.
Mr. Lancer had an eyebrow raised, "No, you cannot have a cookie. Now please continue with the story."
Danny blushed. What had made him say that? "The two screamed in horror at the sight. They had neve- I need to go weewee," Danny interrupted the story again.
"What is wrong with you Mr. Fenton?" Mr. Lancer asked his student. Surely Danny didn't do this all the time.
"I have to go," Danny groaned while squeezing his legs shut. Sam and Tucker exchanged confused glances while the other students laughed.
"Can it wait?" Lancer asked Danny.
"NO!" Danny shouted and stood from his desk, "I have to go now! Where's the potty?" Danny questioned Mr. Lancer. Lancer stood in shock. Had Danny gone insane? Or was he just wanting attention?
Before Mr. Lancer could reply Danny dashed out of the classroom, leaving behind a very confused and amused classroom.
Lancer stood indifferent from the event. "Well," Tucker intervined, "If you gotta go, then you gotta go."
Danny ran through the halls of the school. He had to get to the bathroom soon or else he was in big trouble. Looking at two large double doors, he ran out of the school and out on the sidewalk. This didn't help him, there wasn't a bathroom in site.
Unexpectingly, a pain shot through his body and he could feel himself begin to change. His body began to get smaller and he felt much lighter than he did before.
The pain slowly began to ebb away and soon after wards, he felt much better. He even didn't need to use the bathroom anymore, but he still wanted a cookie.
The fourteen year old Danny, had turned into a four year old Danny. Decked in jeans, sneakers, and a red t-shirt.
A shadow loomed over the younger version of Danny. Danny blinked and looked up to see a white haired man, wearing a black suit.
The man smiled down at Danny, "Why hello Daniel..."
I'm sorry if I made some spelling and grammar errors, but the program that I use doesn't have any sort of spell or grammar check. All I have is this dictionary that was made in 1977. Also, I forgot the name of the boomerang that the Fentons use, if someone could -please- remind me I'll go back and fix it. That story that was in there is totally my own. And if you noticed, the 'author' is named I. C. Canibals. And also, I know that my style of writing sucks, but since I'm the writer I can't tell what it is that makes it suck so badly. It's kind like you drawing something and you need someone to point out what's wrong with the drawing in order to see what you did wrong. I thought that it was funny. Well, please R & R!
