Ch. 7: Tastes like Terror
Spongebob awoke with his vision blurred. After what happened with Squidward, it was a relief to be able to breathe again. The last thing he could remember was Squidward hugging him and Patrick and Pearl attacking the others. As his vision began to get better, he realized that he was tied to a chair while Sandy and Mr. Krabs were chained to the wall.
"Ugh where are we?" Spongebob asked.
"You're in my laboratory." Said Plankton. Spongebob found the miniscule miscreant standing on top of Karen's monitor with Pete next to him. Spongebob trembled at the sight of the Pete. Behind them were Patrick and Squidward moaning mindlessly.
"Aha! I should have known you weren't working alone." Mr. Krabs shouted as he glared at Plankton.
"Oh where are my manners. Everyone, this is Pete, my cohort Maleficent's lackey." Plankton introduced.
"Lackey!" Pete shouted.
"I'm sure Spongebob is already familiar with Maleficent, and Sora too if not more."
Spongebob was shocked that Sora knew Maleficent. He wondered why Sora never mentioned it, granted they only knew each other for only a couple of hours, and more importantly where he was.
"Sora? How do you know him? Where is he?" Spongebob asked.
"Oh you don't know?" Plankton asked mockingly. "These aren't from around here. In fact, they're from another world."
"*Gasp* You mean they're….. aliens? From outer space?" Spongebob asked fearfully.
"No you idiot, not that kind of world. They're from different universes; they just call "universes" worlds. Your friend is a Keyblade Wielder, a special person who uses a powerful weapon called a "Keyblade". I him locked up wanted to make sure he didn't interrupt my ingenious plans, so I have placed in another room." Plankton said. "However he's the lucky one. He gets to watch from a special cell through this video feed. Why don't you give him a wave?"
Spongebob didn't detect that Plankton meant to annoy him so he naively waved at the camera with a smile before realizing he was still trapped. Sora saw through a monitor that was on the other side of his cage. Ever since he woke up, he had been trying to break out of the cage but with no success. However that didn't mean he was going to give up. Sora continued hacking away at the bars while watching Spongebob on the monitor to see if Maleficent was going to make an appearance.
"Hah! Ingenious?" Mr. Krabs asked. "Plankton, all your plans are the same: get me formula, sell me Krabby Patties, and possibly take over the town."
"HEY! My plans are not all the same; the goal is the same. Besides, this one worked and you didn't even stop me." Plankton mocked
"Is that eye of yours working? I've been trying to figure out how to get me formula from you for days."
"Heh heh heh heh, you still think this was all about stealing your formula? No this is much bigger, bigger than Plan Z! It's... it's… Plan Negative Z!"
"Plan Negative Z?" Karen asked.
"Yes, the negative makes it more evil and signifies that it's the step after Plan Z. No quiet, I'm monologing. Where was I? Oh yes, my plan did involve stealing your precious formula so that I could make my own delicious food."
"I knew it! Ha ha! I knew you stole it." Mr. Krabs shouted. "So how'd you do it? Robots? Impersonating someone? Super powers?"
"Nope, with the help of my bug bytes." Planktons said.
"Ewww." Said Sandy, Spongebob, and Mr. Krabs said. Even Sora was mildly disgusted from his cell.
"Not bug bites, bug bytes! As in gigabytes." He explained. Plankton pulled out his Keyblade and summoned some of the robotic, bug-like heartless and made them grow until they were the size as everyone else. They were split into two groups: one group resembled mosquitoes with long pointy noses and stingers on their behind and the other looked like a cartoonish pillbug with antenna that sparked with electricity with 6 arms. Spongebob, Sandy, and Mr. Krabs were still disgusted by them.
"Pretty cool, huh? I managed to learn to do that in a week." Plankton said proudly. "Anyway, I used these guys to steal the formula, and then I just used Jim's cooking, my chum, and secret sauce to make the Chum Patty and sell it to everyone in Bikini Bottom."
Spongebob's lip trembled as he was overcome with grief about being reminded of Jim working for Plankton.
"Don't worry, if it makes you feel better Jim never knew about the plan and only did it for the money. At least until we had to get rid of him." Said Plankton. His words didn't help Spongebob, but he didn't intend to do make them that way.
"So now you're caught up, I might as well tell you where my plan goes next. Now that everyone has eaten my Chum Patties, except you three," Said Plankton as he enjoyed hearing himself say that he sold his food to almost of Mr. Krabs' customers, "I can use the special "ingredients" in the Chum Patties to infect everyone's bodies and make them my slaves. They will do my bidding and I will be able to rule this town. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!"
"Um, no offense Plankton, but you already did that with Bucket Helmets." Spongebob reminded.
"Silence! Now all that's left is to make sure that the last people in Bikini Bottom eat those Chum Patties, which include all of you, that Keyblade kid, and of course the royal family and Baldy." Explained Plankton.
"PLANKTON, YOU'LL NEVER- hey wait a second," Mr. Krabs realized, "if people only become your slaves by eating your chum patties then that means…. MR. SQUIDWARD YOU TRAITOR! WHY I OUTTA TIE YOU UP WITH YOUR TENTACLES AND USE YOU AS BAIT!". Squidward wasn't affected by the threat and just moaned blankly.
"But why do this Plankton? What have we ever done that was so wrong?" Spongebob pleaded.
Plankton's joy disappeared into anger. "What have you done wrong? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WRONG? It's your and Eugene's fault this is happening! Eugene and I used to be friends but then he betrayed me to make Krabby Patties and joined the kids that used to mock us daily. But what really makes my blood boil is you Spongebob; you and your constant happiness. Every time I look at you I see a bit of me in you before I became evil. So pure and innocent, like looking into a mirror that's taunting me, making me realize that I'll never be able to be happy like I used to be, and even if I was happy it would be short lived and be more painful than being unhappy. That's why I'm doing this: to make everyone feel the way I do and to finally achieve happiness that can never be taken away. That's why when I'm done here I'm helping Maleficent open the Well of Darkness, and with its power I'LL MAKE SURE EVERYONE FEELS MY PAIN!"
"Plankton, you've let grief blind you. I never abandoned you; you walked out on me. If you had stayed then we would have been partners, not enemies. It didn't have to be like this." Mr. Krabs said honestly.
"Save your breathe Krabs. You're gonna need it for when you're begging me not to pump you full of my secret sauce and turn you into my slave."
Plankton signaled Patrick and Squidward to pull back a huge red curtain that was behind them to reveal a giant vat of Plankton's inky-black secret sauce. The two grabbed a pair of hoses and brought them over to Mr. Krabs and Sandy. Patrick aimed his at Mr. Krabs while Squidward hooked the hose up to Sandy's suit so that it would flow into her helmet. Spongebob and Sora could only watch in terror as Plankton hopped over to the valve that turned the hoses on.
"Any last words Krabs?" Plankton asked.
"I have three things to say: one, my only regret is not hiring an exterminator the minute you moved next door, second, it's both an honor and a disgrace to be beaten by my worst enemy and best friend, and third, I want to know what's in that secret sauce. If I'm gonna be leavin' this world, then I might as well know what you used to soil me formula." Mr. Krabs said.
Pete began to look a little green when he heard that since he knew what was in the secret sauce. Plankton just chuckled and said, "You're going to wish you hadn't requested that. If anything, I was going to spare you the knowledge of what I was using because we used to be friends. If you really want to know, then behold."
Plankton aimed his Keyblade at the sauce at what happened next surprised and horrified everyone in the room and even Sora from his cell.
The sauce blinked at them. It slowly began to rise and morph into a body and growled at the three in the room.
"The secret to my success, your doom, is pure darkness. I've been using pure, liquefied Heartless as the sauce to control everyone. The minute they enter someone, the Heartless spread through the body and at my command, infect the heart with their darkness so that they take control over the host. After that I can control the Heartless within and the host. Unfortunately for you, you're going to experience point blank." Plankton said as he turned the valve.
The Heartless fluid flowed through the hoses and began spraying out the ends. Sandy's helmet began to fill with it as Mr. Krabs was sprayed heavily with it. Spongebob couldn't bear to see his friends in pain and closed his eyes while Sora began striking harder at his cage and using all the magic he had. Then, Plankton turned the valve and stopped the torture. Spongebob opened an eye as he looked at his friends who were covered in the foul liquid.
For a second it looked like the two were dead but then they opened their eyes. Spongebob gasped because in his boss and friend's eyes he could see nothing but evil.
Seeing the transformation live, Sora was worried about what would happen to Spongebob, along with Goofy, Donald, Mindy, Triton, and King Neptune.
Back in Downtown Bikini Bottom, King Neptune was still leading everyone in a hopeless attempt at finding Spongebob since he had no idea where he was. The sun began to set and night began to fall. The street lights began to turn on one by one as King Neptune kept searching.
"Dad, do you know where we're going?" Triton asked.
"Of course I do. I'm the King." King Neptune lied.'
"Then how come we've been looking for 7 hours." Mindy asked.
"Duh umm urr we're taking the scenic route?" he lied.
"Gawrsh, it sure is quiet." Goofy said.
"Where is everybody?" Donald wondered.
King Neptune secretly wondered the same thing. Earlier they were surrounded by paparazzi and fans, now they were all alone. It was like they were in a ghost town.
Just then, Goofy's stomach grumbled as he blushed in embarrassment.
"Whoops, sorry." He apologized.
"You know maybe we should stop for the night and maybe stop to eat." Mindy suggested.
"Nonsense, we're almost there." King Neptune said.
"You said that 7 hours, 22 minutes, and 94 seconds ago." Triton said.
"How do you know the exact time I said that?"
"After being locked in a cage for hundreds of years, I've gotten pretty good of keeping track of time. Anyway, I agree with Little Miss Pacifist there, I'm starving. We should stop at that place I captured you and get some Krabby Patties."
Upon hearing that, King Neptune that Spongebob served those at his job at the Krusty Krab.
"That's it I know where to-"
Out of nowhere, something zapped the crown off of King Neptune, revealing his bare head.
"My bald spot, I mean thinning spot." He cried.
They all turned and saw the enslaved King Jellyfish with several of his subjects he transformed and Heartless. Everyone was surprised at this but King Neptune was prepared as he bared his trident.
"Mindy, get behind me. Son, it's time I show you that your old man hasn't gone soft."
Plankton had freed Mr. Krabs and Sandy, whose skin had gotten paler and their eyes staring blankly. Sandy still had the tube connected to her helmet, but Plankton didn't bother taking it off. Spongebob shivered in fear at what Plankton had done. He had seen Plankton do a lot of horrible things, but Spongebob doubted if he could forgive Plankton for what he did.
"Well Spongebob, do you still feel like smiling now?" Plankton taunted.
Spongebob was terrified but he responded, "Plankton, you won't get away with this. I don't care what you say, I am not giving up."
"Well then, I guess we'll just have different opinions. I think it's time to change that." Said Plankton. He snapped his fingers and Pete approached the fry cook with a chum patty covered in the Heartless fluid. Spongebob tried to move and escape, but he couldn't move an inch as Pete slowly brought the food closer.
"No, oh dear Neptune no." Spongebob plead
Plankton cackled evilly as Pete shoved the food down Spongebob's throat. Spongebob chewed the food and hated every bite like a child who was eating his least favorite vegetable. Sora watched and he was horrified. He was too late. Spongebob swallowed the chum patty and took in a breath of fresh air. Sora and Plankton couldn't believe it: Spongebob was now going to be Plankton's slave. Although Plankton didn't know it, Sora knew that now Spongebob wouldn't be able to help him stop Maleficent.
Although Sora wasn't focused on that he was more concerned about Spongebob's safety. Sora knew he had a duty to fulfill but he had begun to like Spongebob. He was a nice kid who was naïve, but a good friend. He couldn't help but blame himself for what was going to happen.
Plankton anxiously waited for Spongebob's change to occur as Spongebob moaned in disgust. Finally, nothing would stand in his way.
"Yes, now to see if it worked. Spongebob I command you to attack that friend of yours in the cage." Plankton ordered.
Everyone waited in silence for Spongebob to obey the command.
"…. BLAGH!" said Spongebob. "That was the worst Patty I've ever eaten." He said. "And about hurting Sora, forget it. I'd never hurt one of my best friends purposely.
Sora smiled brightly at what just happened. Spongebob was okay and not one of Plankton's zombies. Pete's jaw dropped while Plankton's jaw hit the ground, literally. The two couldn't understand why Spongebob was still okay. Nobody had ever been able to resist Plankton after eating one of the chum patties.
"What! Why aren't you a mindless drone?" Plankton shouted in disbelief.
"Maybe that was just a fluke." Suggested Pete.
"Hmmm, maybe." Plankton said. He grabbed a patty and shoved it into Spongebob's mouth. He watched Spongebob swallow it, but Spongebob was still unchanged, with the except of the look of disgust on his face. Plankton was getting annoyed. Pete grabbed two chum patties and fed Spongebob them but still nothing.
"What's going on here? Why isn't he a zombie yet?" Plankton wondered.
"I don't know. I felt something when I ate it, but I guess my body rejected it." Spongebob said.
"Grrrrrrrr, that's it! I'm through playing around. Let's just do it point blank!" Plankton shouted. He grabbed the hose and stuck it into Spongebob's mouth. He turned it on and watched Spongebob take in the Darkness drink. He began to fill up like a water balloon and soon his head touched the ceiling. Plankton cut the flow.
Plankton was exhausted as he panted, "There's no way he can resist the change now."
As if on cue, Spongebob began to tremble as Plankton eagerly awaited the results.
Spongebob spat out the Heartless fluid like a fire hose while his pores while it also seeped out of his pores. Sora was delighted and disgusted at the fact Spongebob managed to resist. He didn't know how Spongebob did it, but he was happy that he was okay.
Plankton on the other hand was so furious that he looked like he would blow a gasket.
"THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE!" Plankton shouted.
Spongebob twisted around in hopes that he could wring himself of any extra darkness from him as Plankton began to pant angrily.
"Sorry Plankton, but I guess I'm not slave material." Joked Spongebob.
"Alright Squarepants, if I can't make you my slave, I'll just have to kill you. Send him in." Plankton ordered.
The doors to the lab slammed open as he walked in. Darkness shrouded him as boots hit the floor, made by one his boots and the other by his new mechanical foot. As he walked closer into the light, Spongebob could see he wore a belt buckle with a skull on it over his leather pants and his hands well balled into fists, one of the hands being mechanical. When he walked into the light where everyone could see him. Spongebob was terrified more than he had ever been in his life. The man had a gray shirt with a black vest, a knife hanging around his neck, a handkerchief around his mouth, a small black ten-gallon hat, and one of the most recognizable features was his sunglasses, where a red light shined where one of his eyes should have been. Spongebob knew this man long ago and thought he'd never see him again. Now here he was with fists balled up here for revenge.
"Did you miss me, kid?" Dennis asked sinisterly.
Spongebob nearly wet himself when he saw the assassin. "Um he-he-hey Dennis. How you been?" he stammered nervously.
"How have I been? I nearly died because of you!" Dennis shouted.
"Wh-wh-what did I do?" Spongebob asked.
"After I got knocked off the giant guy you were riding, I didn't just land in some magical land with pixies, I fell into a trench; a deep, dark trench where I was attacked by monsters every single day. The only thing keeping me alive was my wits and the thought that one day I'd find my way out and make you suffer a slow, painful, agonizing, merciless death." He said.
Spikes appeared underneath Dennis' boots as he stared down at Spongebob. "Finally, it's time I finish you off once AND FOR ALL!" he yelled as he brought his spikey boot up in the air as Spongebob trembled before him.
Just as Dennis brought his boot down, Spongebob's savior blocked it. Spongebob was expecting a bunch of painful spikes to stab him but instead he looked at his hero.
"Spat!" Spongebob called.
Just inches from Spongebob's face were Dennis' spiked boots that were being blocked by Spongebob's spatula. Spat moved so that Dennis' spikes cut the ropes binding him.
"Thanks Spat." Spongebob said. He kicked Dennis' other leg and made the assassin fall. Spongebob grabbed Spat and ran for his life. He jumped over Pete and slid past Patrick and Squidward and managed to run out of the lab. Plankton summoned his bug byte heartless and said "After him."
On command, the heartless and Spongebob's mind controlled friends ran after him. Dennis was fuming and ran after him as well.
"You know if that kid breaks Sora out, Maleficent is gonna destroy you." Pete said.
"Don't worry, he'll never be able to unlock. Only I can unlock." Plankton said.
"Hmm, not bad technology."
"Oh it's not technology, I just sealed it with my Keyblade. I mean where's that kid going to get one?"
While Pete was ready to squish Plankton for his incompetency, Sora heard it on the camera and decided to see if it was true. He aimed the Keyblade at the lock like he would when he sealed a world lock. Like he expected, a beam shot out and unlocked the cell, immediately fell to pieces. Sora mentally face palmed himself for not doing this sooner. He swam out of the room into a hallway. He was glad to get out but now he had to find Spongebob.
Suddenly he heard moaning from down the hall. Sora had to hide in order to avoid letting anyone aware he escaped. So he swam into a room he was sure was empty. At the same time Spongebob ran through the hallway trying to escape the heartless, slaves, and Dennis. He had to hide so he coincidentally went into the same room as Sora.
"Phew, I think we lost them." Spongebob said to Spat. As he caught his breath, he looked around his surroundings. He realized that he must be where Plankton stores the ingredients he uses to find out what the secret ingredient is in Krabby Patties. Just then, he heard something.
"*Gasp* What do you think that was Spat? One of the monsters? You think we should look?"
Spat nodded in response, so Spongebob tip-toed forward not trying to make a sound. He held Spat ready to use in combat despite the fact that he was scared. Suddenly, something bumped behind him.
"AHHH!" yelled Spongebob.
"AHHH!" screamed Sora.
The two held their weapons of choice at the other.
"Spongebob?" Sora asked.
"Sora!" Spongebob exclaimed as he dropped Spat and gave the Keyblade Wielder a friendly hug.
"Uh, it's nice to see you to Spongebob." Sora said uncomfortably.
"Are you okay?" Spongebob asked.
Sora chuckled and replied, "Don't worry I'm fine. I saw what you did and it was amazing."
Spongebob couldn't help but blush. "Really, thanks." Before he continued, Spongebob remembered something Plankton said.
"Sora, is it true you're…. from another world?" Spongebob asked.
Sora rubbed the back of his head uncomfortably knowing that he had to tell Spongebob the truth. "Yes, it's true. I'm not from Bikini Bottom and I'm not really a merman, my friend changed me so I could breathe underwater."
Spongebob was quite surprised at what he heard. Luckily for Sora Spongebob wasn't mad but he was curious to know about some of the other worlds.
"So what's it like in other worlds?" Spongebob asked.
Sora felt like he was answering a child so he replied, "Well each one is different. Some worlds have talking fish, others have aliens, but I'm pretty sure none of them have Krabby Patties."
"*Gasp* Those poor poor people." Spongebob said.
"Don't worry, the people are still happy without Krabby Patties, and a lot of worlds have really nice people like you."
"Uggggggggggggggggggggh." Moaned someone.
Spongebob and Sora turned to face the sound of the commotion. Far off in the corner of the room was Jim, who looked badly hurt.
"Jim! Hold Spat for me Sora." Spongebob said as he handed Sora Spat. Spongebob ran to Jim and examined his wounds. Sora swam over to Spongebob and looked at the beaten fish.
"Spongebob?" Jim moaned.
"Yes Jim it's me. What happened to you?" Spongebob asked.
"My lousy boss Plankton. After I started to learn about his plan, he made the monsters attack me. They thought I was dead and he put me in here and planned to deal with me later. I woke up, but I couldn't leave because I didn't want to run into those… things again. I've been keeping myself alive by eating these ingredients. By the way, avoid the jars over there because that is not lemonade in them."
Spongebob started to tear up at seeing one of his heroes down. Sora felt bad for the two, so Sora casted a cure spell on Jim. Spongebob stepped back as Jim began to glow green. The light disappeared and Jim felt better. He had trouble standing up, but he was in less pain. Spongebob saw what Sora did and smiled.
"Jim, is there anything we can do to help you?" said Spongebob.
Jim sighed before answering, "Yes. There is one thing. I might not make it out of here, so I want to make sure there is someone to take my place. I need you to take my place as the Krusty Krab's greatest chef."
"*Gasp* Me? Jim, I am honored." Spongebob said in disbelief. "I would gladly-"
"Not so fast. There's one thing you need to do first: make your own sandwich. Just like how I made the Jim Patty, you need to make the Spongebob Patty, with your own recipe."
Spongebob gasped in shock, "But…but I'd be soiling the Krabby patty formula. Besides the last time I tried to make something original it endangered thousands of jellyfishes."
"Spongebob, just do it for me. Please." Jim begged.
Spongebob thought it over and since this may be the last thing he did before Dennis or one of his zombie friends killed him, he decided to accept it. Spongebob grabbed the ingredients Plankton had and went to work on the Patties. Spongebob stopped thinking about Krabby Patties, and let his mind go blank. Then, he grabbed the ingredients and went to work. He carefully constructed his sandwich like a surgeon working on a triple bypass. He made sure that everything was precise, from the number of grains of salt to the drops of ketchup. He used some sticks and exposed wires to start a fire to grill the patties on. Then, he grabbed some Jellyfish jelly from his back pocket, and spread it on the patties. Finally, he told the patties he loved them, he even hugged one of them, and finished it.
Sora was a bit confused by Spongebob's way of cooking but Jim watched judgmentally like a teacher watching his pupils work on a final exam. At last, Spongebob grabbed a platter on presented Jim with eight hamburgers.
"Alright, Jim here is my offering. I hope that you enjoy it. I call them the Spongebob Patty" Spongebob said
Jim looked at the Spongebob Patties and picked one up. He examined it and then put in his mouth. He chewed it slowly while Spongebob nervously waited while Sora kept a lookout for any attacks. Finally, Jim swallowed with his face unchanging and Spongebob sweating bullets.
"Spongebob, I've eaten a lot of bad burgers. I've eaten burgers from the trash. I've come across burgers that weren't even worthy of being in my presence. This Spongebob Patty….. is not one of them." Jim said with a smile.
Spongebob froze and a smile crept on his face. Even Sora let his guard down and watched Spongebob be praised. "In all my years of cooking, I've never had a burger like this. So juicy, so delicious, so radical, it made me feel a happiness I haven't felt in a long time. Well done Spongebob, you did it."
Spongebob grinned from ear to ear at the sound of that. All the horror that was happening around him was now replaced with joy and happiness.
"Thank you Jim, it's an honor to hear you say that. Best of all, I made extras who wants one?" Spongebob offered.
Sora and Jim raised their hands and Spongebob handed them out.
"Okay, one for Jim, one for Sora, one for Zombie Patrick, and one for- ZOMBIE PATRICK!" Spongebob shouted.
Everyone looked and realized that Patrick was standing next to them, and behind him were Mr. Krabs, Squidward, Sandy, Mermaid Man, and Barnacle boy, who were also taken over by darkness. The three backed up as Spongebob's friends approached them. Sora drew out his Keyblade while Spongebob looked for something to throw. Spongebob closed his eyes so that he wouldn't watch himself hurt his friends and picked up a Spongebob Patty.
"I'm sorry whoever gets hit." Spongebob said as he chucked the Spongebob Patty into the air. As it soared through the air, the Spongebob Patty didn't hurt anyone but instead went into Patrick's open mouth.
Patrick instantly swallowed the Spongebob Patty. As he came closer he grabbed Spongebob and moaned something to Spongebob.
"Spongebob….." Patrick moaned.
Spongebob closed his eyes and hoped that whatever Patrick did would be swift and painless.
"…. That….was… the greatest…. Thing I've ever eaten. Can I have more?" Patrick asked.
Spongebob opened his eyes and saw that Patrick was changing. His skin was returning to its natural pink color, his eyes returned to a normal white as he blinked twice, and he wasn't attacking Spongebob. He was cured.
"Patrick! You're okay!" Spongebob said excitedly.
"I'm okay." Patrick repeated. "Um who's your friend?"
Sora saw what happened and had an idea. "Patrick, grab the others!" Sora ordered.
"Okay. Hey do you know Mindy?"
"Patrick!" Spongebob and Sora shouted. Patrick obeyed and grabbed Squidward as he tried to break free. Sora grabbed a Spongebob Patty and fed it to Squidward. Like Patrick, he returned to normal and a rarely seen smile appeared on his face.
"Wow, I haven't felt like this since before Spongebob moved in." Squidward said.
"Spongebob, get your other friends to eat your Spongebob Patties." Said Sora.
Spongebob picked up a Spongebob Patty and aimed it at Sandy like a pitcher at a baseball game. He threw it at her and made it so the Spongebob Patty went into the tube, went into her helmet, bounced around, and into her mouth. She changed back to normal as well.
"Yeehaw! That's better than Texas barbeque." She hollered.
As Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy approached Sora, he used a Blizzard spell to make the floor icy and make the two fall down. Spongebob came over with two Spongebob Patties with extra fiber and dropped into the two superheroes mouths. They came to their senses too with smiles on their faces.
"Barnacle Boy, it's a miracle. I can taste things again." Mermaid Man said.
Last was Mr. Krabs, which Spongebob handled by offering Mr. Krabs a dollar if he ate the Spongebob Patty. By now, everyone in the room was back to normal.
"Nice job Spongebob," Sandy said, "But how'd you do it?"
"With my Spongebob Patties." Spongebob answered.
"BOY! Did you mess with the formula again? Why I outta-"
"Mr. Krabs, Spongebob's patties saved you. In fact, I think it can save everyone." Sora said.
"Stay out of the way, off-worlder." Mr. Krabs said.
"Wait, he might be right. If we can make enough Spongebob Patties, we can save everyone and beat Plankton." Sandy said.
"Right, as long as we sell them at a reasonable price." Said Mr. Krabs, earning him some dirty looks from everyone.
"I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I think they found us." Squidward said as he looked through the port hole in the door. Outside were hundreds of Plankton's enslaved minions, Heartless, and making his way to door was Dennis. Patrick looked out the window and when he saw Dennis he screamed like a little girl and hid in the corner.
"Now what do we do?" Spongebob asked.
Everyone but Spongebob, Sora, and Jim pressed back on the door to keep the door closed. "You boys get cooking, we'll stall him."
10 minutes later…
WHAM! WHAM! CRASH!
The zombified people broke down the door just as Spongebob finished. Dennis stuck his head in and shouted, "Here's Dennis!"
"And here's the Raging Whirlpool!" shouted Mermaid Man.
Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy summoned a giant, tornado-like whirlpool and used it against Dennis and the zombies. He got swept up into it far away and knocked down all of the zombies and Heartless.
"Order up." shouted Spongebob.
Everyone ran out of the storage room before the heartless and zombies could get up. While Patrick, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs dropped the Spongebob Patties into the mouths of the enslaved people, Spongebob, Sora, and Sandy eliminated the Heartless with some Karate and Keyblade action. With every fish that was cured, another Heartless was destroyed. The Heartless fought back but where no match for Spongebob and Sandy's karate.
"Hi-ya!" cried Sandy. "I haven't had this much fun since Karate Island."
"Me too." Spongebob said as he karate chopped another heartless.
In about 10 minutes, they managed to defeat all the Heartless in the Chum Bucket and cure all the people in it. "Whoo! Way to go Sora." Congratulated Spongebob.
"Thanks Spongebob, but we're not done yet. We have to stop Plankton." Said Sora.
"Hold it." Said Mr. Krabs. "Make sure you save some room for me."
Sora nodded and the two ran back to Plankton's lab, with everyone else following. They burst open the lab doors and slowly walked in, ready for any surprises. Aside from some Chum Patties lying around, the place seemed deserted.
"PLANKTON!" yelled Mr. Krabs, "Give yourself up before I lose my patience."
"Do you think we scared him off?" Spongebob asked.
"Not even close." Plankton said.
Everyone turned to see Plankton atop the vat of Darkness with the hose in his hand.
"Oh no, he's going to spray us!" Sora said.
"That's right, prepare to become re-enslaved. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!" he laughed.
While Plankton laughed, Spongebob picked up a Chum Patty. He aimed carefully, and used Spat as a make-shift catapult. He flung the Chum Patty and hit the hose dead center. Plankton turned the hose on but to his dismay the Chum Patty was blocking and being pumped full of the darkness. As the Chum Patty grew, the pressure started to build within the vat and it started to shake
"Uh-oh." Said Plankton.
"Everyone clear the room." Said Sora.
Everyone ran out of the Chum Bucket as the situation got worse. Sora and Spongebob were the last ones out before it happened.
The vat exploded and destroyed the roof of the Chum Bucket. Everyone cheered happily as Spongebob and Sora smiled.
"Nice aiming Spongebob." Said Sora.
"Thanks. Now that Plankton's plan is foiled, maybe everything can go back to-"
"Mwa ha ha ha ha! Ha ah ah ha ha ha ha ha!" Plankton cackled.
"Plankton?" Spongebob asked.
Suddenly, a giant hand appeared from the Chum Bucket. It pulled itself out so that everyone could see the monster. It was a 50-foot Chum Patty, dripping with Darkness that had dark, Heartless-like arms, green eyes, and on top of it was Plankton.
"Oh dear Neptune." Mr. Krabs said.
"That's right; tremble before me and my monster! Fear the wrath of Chum-zilla! AH HA HA HA HA HA HA!"
"Why does every monster have to have –zilla in their name?" Sandy wondered.
"Now to get rid of the one obstacle in my plan: King Neptune." Plankton said. Using his Keyblade, he made Chum-zilla head to the city.
"King Neptune is in town? Hey I wonder he has Mindy with him?" Patrick wondered. "Oh no, Mindy!"
"King Neptune." Spongebob said.
"Oh no, Donald and Goofy!" Sora worried.
End of Ch. 7
Oh no, what will our heroes do? Will Sora and Spongebob stop Chum-zilla? How is King Neptune dealing with King Jellyfish? Have we seen the last of Dennis? Find out in Ch. 8: It Came From the Chum Bucket. Please review and congrats on the reviewer named "Guest" who correctly guessed that the secret weapon was Dennis. Also, Nan0429, very impressive deducing and finding the clues. The third one was unintentional but still nice job. Anyway, please review and let me know if I made any spelling errors because I didn't have time to spell check.
