…Ehehe… Sorry for updating so late. I've got a bunch of testing coming up this month, so I don't really have the time to be typing. (EOC's, SAT, and Finals)
Plus I'm grounded.
Disclaimer: I do not own the quote that would probably be recognized from Butch Hartman's show Danny Phantom (an episode titled Public Enemies)
Vlad's POV (Masters)
I rested against the wall, exhausted, while the sounds of muffled questions leaked though the crevices of the door. I'd already given my second speech about Daniel's appearances around town, but it isn't enough to satisfy them. Now teenagers everywhere are cheering about the cancellation of school.
The knockings ceased and I exhaled sharply though my nose. I marched over to the office. As I stepped into the room, my eyes instantly caught the window.
No surprise there. It was just as I suspected: overflowing with reporters and the flashes of cameras trying to get my attention.
"Great almond biscuits." I cursed, giving the cameras a look of irritation before closing the curtains sharply. It was a stupid thing to do. More knocking ensued.
Tired, I collapsed on the chair and leaned back. Another day, going back and forth between Amity and Wisconsin. Back and forth between Masters and Plasmius. Back and forth between relived and worried. Again.
Perhaps I shouldn't concern myself to something as minor as that. Since Daniel joined me, everything is running more smoothly than I first anticipated. His sudden change in heart had once getting my suspicions up, but he hasn't once refused any of the unforgivable crimes I've asked. It's strange, but I willadmit that he is the son that any father could ask for.
Speaking of Daniel, I haven't checked on him for a while. My hand reached for the device in my ear and I turned the dial to the correct frequency.
"Daniel." I called from the headset. "Where are you now?"
"I'm still patrolling...signs of Sam and Tucker...checked west side." His voice was blocked by static, but fortunately coherent. Talking in a more annoyed tone, he added, "If only...Guys in White weren't after...alter ego...be easier to find them."
"Patience, Daniel." I instructed with a sneer. "Wherever they are, they can't move in public without causing attention. You best be found as Daniel Fenton around town than be chased around as 'Danny Phantom'."
"You're right." He sighed. "I'll try...find them soon."
"Don't let me down, Daniel."
The transmission ended and I was left in a room still filled with obnoxious knocking. After a few moments, phone on my desk rang. I happily answered.
"This is Mayor speaking."
"Mr. Masters." A deep voice said. "The troops finally surrounded the whole town and we are on high alert for any sight of ghost kid."
"Sir. We're having our suspicions that he may be in alliance with a citizen by the name of Danny Fenton."
I stiffened. "And what causes you to believe that, Agent K?"
"Sir. He's been in our records labeled as 'Suspect at Large'."
My fingers instinctively tapped on the edge of my desk. This could be a problem. Daniel is the only one who can trick those two teenagers out of hiding, but if they captured him before that-
"Never mind him and continue on the search for Phantom." I snarled. "Hasn't anyone told you that the Fenton family is missing? Shouldn't you also know that Danny Fenton is among them?"
"O-oh, yes, right." The agent stuttered. "Sorry, sir. It's just that-"
"Don't you dare bother me again unless he's captured." I interrupted.
"Right. Forgive me, sir. I'll inform you when we find him."
I put the phone back on the receiver. Daniel at the west side and the GIW surrounding the town?
I suspect he can manage long enough for me to begin phase two.
Exerting myself to fly all the way to Wisconsin is very troublesome, but exhilarating at the same time.
If only those blasted agents weren't blocking the Fenton Portal, I'd be there much quicker. I thought aloud. It was for the best, I suppose. Besides, I didn't want to run into Daniel. That would be more stressful for the two of us if his annoying friends figured out our alliance.
After three agonizing hours, I reached the steps of my house. I stopped to take a breath, then made a clone as I turned my actual self back into human.
"Be sure to not harm her too much." I instructed my clone. Plasmius nodded, not as worn out as I was with the flying.
"That would be the last thing we'd want, wouldn't we?" it chuckled. "She'll be on our side before Daniel will even know."
"Yes." I agreed. "Now get going. The more you stick around, the more awkward it feels to be talking to myself."
Plasmius threw his head back in laughter and phased through the door. Ghosts are such sadists.
I followed through the door and continued to go after him around the house up to the secret entrance leading into the basement. He jerked his head in the direction of the lab and I nodded in approval. Plasmius dove down into the opening like a fish and begun his job.
It was also at that moment that I decided to take a rest and regain my strength...
Vlad's POV (Plasmius)
"Let go of my wife, you odd manifestation of ectoplasmic energy and post-human consciousness!" Jack demanded as his hands gripped the ends of the cell that held him. Jasmine was at her father's side, trying to calm him down but not letting her gaze leave mine.
"Why, thank you!" I replied gladly. I yanked Maddie by her cuffs, making Jack fume. "But I'm afraid that Madeline will-"
"Will what?" Maddie insisted. She still struggled with the restraints on her hands and I was barely able to catch her before she got loose. It was too soon for her to be free. The courage she is displaying now shows her loyalty to Jack, which gave me a thought. A sickening thought.
"Oh come now! What's the use in telling you all?" I joked and slipped my hand in my pocket. Jasmine gasped and Jack cried out in anger when Maddie fell on the ground shaking.
"You filthy-!" Jack began. Jasmine clutched Jack's hand tightly enough for him to stop mid-sentence. Tears filled her eyes, but stood her ground.
"I'll take care of this, Dad." Jasmine said in an astoundingly calm voice. Jack almost protested, but I didn't let him.
"Let the girl talk, Jack."
The man stepped back and allowed his daughter to face me.
"What do you expect to gain from this, Vlad?" she questioned fiercely. "Danny's will stop you before you get too far-"
"Daniel?" I choked. "You still believe he is going to save you? Haven't you seen what he's done? What he's planning to do?"
Jasmine didn't hesitate. "Even so, he wouldn't let something like this happen."
I smirked. She still didn't understand.
"You just watch him."
Something smashed the entrance of the lair, causing us to draw our attention away from our current conversation.
"What in blazes-?"
The door fell inward and smacked the floor, and from the smoke, rose a middle aged man with a blaster in his arms. Or should I say a handsome young man with a blaster in his arms.
"Vlad!" Maddie yelled in surprise. "How did you get in here?"
"Hey Vladdie!" Jack called. I could feel both myself and Masters groan.
"But I thought-? But he's not-? Why is he-? What the heck is going on here?"
Though the two were excited to see me, Jasmine was the only one that looked confused. She pointed her finger menacingly at the two of us.
"What game are you trying to play, Vlad?"
"We have no time for this, Jasmine!" Masters feigned urgency. He aimed the blaster at me. "Let the Fentons go, you monster!"
"Mom! Dad! Don't listen to either one of them! He's trying to-"
Jasmine screamed in pain and fell to the ground. Jack ran over to her side and shook her vigorously.
"Jazz! Jazz! Are you okay? Answer me, please!"
Masters was instantly on me and jammed the tip of the gun towards my head. He gave me a small wink before changing his expression to a more serious one.
"I'll say this again. Let the Fentons go. Now."
"Please don't shoot, Masters!" I pleaded. "I'll do anything! Just spare my life!"
"Jazz!" Maddie cried as she tried to inch her way to the cage. "Is she conscious, Jack?"
Jack ignored her question and continued to nudge her. Masters winked at me again and went over to pick Maddie up. I faded into nothingness.
Vlad POV (Masters)
"I'm truly sorry, Maddie." Masters apologized as he began to loosen her restraints. "I can only save one-"
"Don't save me, Vlad. Jazz needs to be rescued more than I do."
"I understand that Jasmine is in need for medical attention, but please understand that she will be in more danger if she leaves this place. Plasmius is more interested in weaker fugitives than stronger ones. Just come with me, Maddie, and we'll come back to save both of them. I promise."
Maddie looked down in thought.
"Honey, go with Vladdie." Jack said with a smile, making Maddie look up. "I'll be sure that Jazz will not get hurt until you save us. Just find Danny and we'll defeat this creep once and for all."
Maddie nodded and took my hand. "Let's get out of here."
"But Mayor Masters-!"
"No, my dear. You are not allowed to participate in this, no matter how much you want to."
"Mayor, forgive me for saying this, but I believe I can catch Phantom and prevent him from causing the town anymore trouble. Just let me have the chance!"
"Miss Gray, I understand your concern about the town and the situation. Because Phantom is the one attacking us is exactly the reason why I don't want you to interfere. His actions are against the entire Amity, not just you.
"Now, I know that you and Phantom have things to settle in the past, but please consider the people that he's injured. If you were a true ghost hunter, you would let the town decide the punishment before you set yours."
"So do we have a deal?"
"...Alright. But once he receives his punishment...?"
"Yes. He's all yours."
"Then it's a deal."

Vlad is a master of manipulation. Dang…I wish I could do that with my teachers and their tests. Because of that, I sound like a nerd every time I update. Test this and test that. Ugh.
