Ok everyone, here is my first fanfiction eva! YAAY! There really isn't a broad topic devoted to the Molly Moon series, but I have been a large fan ever since it first came out. I am writing this because the author left a suggestion for another book, but I haven't heard any news of one coming out in several years. Just so you have a little info about what this is about: Molly Moon is a master hypnotist amongst a family of hypnotists. She and her pals go off on very risky adventures and stuff. For more information, I implore you to read the books (they really are entertaining). I don't own any of the characters, that right is reserved for Ms. Georgia Byng (the authoress). I made some new guys of course, and I made Sally a little OC (she was a very minor character in the books anyway). Enjoy!
Prologue: Mischievous Midnight
June 9th, 1899
It was dark on the streets of San Francisco. The street lanterns were repeatedly blown out by the huge gusts of wind that plagued the moonless night, so no one bothered to relight them. That is, except poor Pao Heung, a determined, old, lamp-post keeper of the neighborhood. His bones were old and achy, and his hair was long and grey, but he was firmly set on keeping the lampposts lit, even if he had to hobble to the same one twenty times a night. That was a lot of trekking up and down hills for one old man! But he valued his job; not many would hire old Chinese men for many things other than building railroads.
Tonight he was roaming the aristocratic district, lifting a little flame one by one to the ousted lanterns. he had to stand on his tippy toes because his arm would only straighten out so much. he huffed and puffed as he climbed the steep hill. This street was almost finished being relit and he decided to take a good nap on a stoop after he had finished.
But then he heard a voice and stopped in his steps. It was a gravelly, hushed voice, but sounded like a child's. It was a voice that Pao Heung was very unaccustomed to hearing so late in the night. He turned his head around, preparing to chastise the perpetrator, though doubting they would understand because he would be blathering in Mandarin. But what he saw almost stunned him into a heart attack! Two boys were standing on each other's shoulders, nuffing the lantern that Pao had just lit!
"I thought you snuffed them already, ya' loony!"
"You callin' me a liar, Jeb? I said I snuffed it, so I snuffed it!"
"Yeah I'm callin' you a liar. That and an idiot for compromising the whole mission," growled Jeb.
Pao stood there in shock as he watched the boys ruin his hard work. He roared and began to hobble his way over to them at the speed of a wrinkly old tortoise.
"What are you fools doing?"" he screeched at them. "Get away from there!"
The boys' heads snapped up in utter shock as Pao hurled curses at them in Chinese. Losing their balanced, they crashed to the ground in a heap and a groan. However, they soon retrieved their senses as Pao approached, and dashed off.
"Scram boys! We're seen! JERONIMO'S FEATHER...or whatever it was," the taller boy, Jeb howled into the night. A red haired figure could be seen hastily peeking out of a high window before disappearing hurriedly. The boys were far ahead of the old Chinese man, but he was still determined to catch them. pao flung his walking stick at them, set on at least leaving a smack that smarted. But as soon as he threw it, his targets disappeared.
In mid step the two boys vanished out of mid air, leaving the night as if they were never present at all. They were gone! Pao gasped so hard that he was thrown into coughing fit that doubled him over to his hands and knees. Did he just see what he thought he saw? He couldn't have! Pao shook his head weakly, and straightened himself out. He wasn't meant for such a chase, it must have muddled his brain.
"Stupid kids," he grumbled as he waddled back to relight the lantern.
I know, I know, this is a Molly Moon fanfiction and MM isn't even mentioned. Patience amigos! It is still muy importante! Chapter One coming soon, I already have it written.
