To airnaruto45, to be honest, those donkeys aren't important for this story anyhow.
Chapter 13: Hoagie's Disappearance
It was still late at night away from Pleasure Island. A familiar kitten toy with donkey ears and a tail came out, wet, cold and tired. Danny has to swim all this way but he has escaped the island.
"Remy, Emile," Danny groans as he lift his own donkey tail to reveal the rats hanging onto it, soaking wet, putting them onto the ground. "You guys all right?"
"Yeah," Emile coughs a bit while spitting out water. "For a moment, I thought we wouldn't make it."
"Glad to be back on dry land." Remy said as he lifts up his head, yelping as a ton of water splash out of it and right onto him, "Geez."
"Well, Danny, looks like you still got those donkey ears and tail but you didn't transform all the way. I guess the curse only worked fully on Pleasure Island."
"Thank goodness. I don't want to explain to Glinda as to why you are a full donkey all of the sudden. Well, come on, time for us to get home."
A while later, Danny and his friends arrive at Hoagie's house, the cat reach the front door while announcing, "Father, dad! I'm home!"
"We're home, Mr. Gilligan, home again!" Emile calls out to Hoagie as he and Remy goes up to the front door while Danny rang the bell.
"Father, it's me, Danny! I'm home to stay!"
"Hoagie, here he is, home at last!" Remy exclaims with a smile. But the rat then looks concerned. No one is answering at all and there's no commotion inside the house. "Weird. No one is answering."
"Maybe they are sleeping." Emile suggests. He and Remy climbs up to the window and rubs a bit to take a look inside.
"Father; Father, it's me!" Danny exclaims in worry. Why isn't Hoagie answering? Or Stitch for that matter?
"Uh, Danny," Remy ask in worry as Danny came over to join his friends at the window. "You may want to take a look inside the place.
"What? What's going on?"
"Look, Hoagie isn't here." Emile said in concern. Sure enough, no one is inside the house/workshop. The place looks empty as if deserted for a while now.
"He's...he's gone." Danny said in sadness. The kitten toy doesn't understand it. Where is his father?
"Yeah, Stitch, too." Remy said in sadness as he saw that Stitch's bed is empty, abandoned. Even the place where Nemo's fishbowl is at is empty as well.
"And Nemo too..."
The three friends sat sadly and quietly on the front step. What happened to Hoagie, Stitch and Nemo? Where could they be?
"Oh, maybe something bad happened to him." Danny said in sadness and guilt. If only the kitten toy has obeyed Hoagie in the first place and went to school in the first place, then maybe this wouldn't have happened.
"Come on, Danny, it's okay. He probably couldn't have gone too far." Remy said in comfort while trying to help Danny. "We can figure something out."
"But how; we don't know where Hoagie, Stitch and Nemo are at." Emile said with a groan. "We need some sort of sign that could help us."
Suddenly in the sky, a glowing bird flew through the sky and drops a message before heading out,. It lands near the trio's feet, getting their attention.
"Hey, Danny, Emile, look!" Remy exclaims as he checks out the message and opens it. "Why, it's a message!"
"What does it say?" Danny asks Remy hopefully. Could the message be about Hoagie?
"It's about your father."
"Well, where is he, Remy?" Emile asks Remy as the latter read the note carefully.
"Let's see...according to this, Hoagie went out looking for Danny in a boat and...he got swallowed by a shark." Remy announces to his friends.
"Swallowed by a shark?" Danny and Emile both gasps at once and in horror, wondering if they both heard right.
"Sure, he...a shark," Remy gasps in shock as he reads the message again carefully, "A huge shark by the name of Jaws!" Danny whimpers in fear, he is fearing the worst. "Wait, hang on! According to this message, Hoagie is still alive!"
"Alive; Where," Danny ask Remy hopefully.
Emile checks the message out as well while announcing, "Hoagie is inside the shark and at the bottom of the sea.
"Bottom of the sea?"
"You got that right." Remy said with a nod. Just then, he and Emile look up and saw Danny heading off. "Wait, Danny! Where are you going now?"
"What do you think?" Danny asks the rats in determination. "I'm going to find out!"
The rats look shocked as they rush up to follow him. Is Danny crazy? Emile protest, "Wait, Danny! Hang on, are you crazy? Don't you understand that your father is inside a shark?"
"Inside or no, I'm going to find him!"
Remy and Emile looks amazed as they kept chasing Danny. That is no longer the same kitten cat whose is foolish to listen to anyone and be led astray. Now he's a different one who wants to save his father no matter what the risk is!
"Danny, wait, hang on!" Remy protests as he and Emile follows Danny. "Listen, come on!"
It was about dawn as Danny and the rats found the edge of the ocean. The kitten toy remember Golden Heart's warning, especially to stay clear of a certain kind of fish that he would never want to meet.
But Danny must meet this monster to save Hoagie. So as the kitten toy begins tying his donkey tail around a big boulder, Remy and Emile rush up to him in hopes to talk him out of his quest.
"Wait, Danny, I know that you want to save your dad but you're crazy!" Emile exclaims to Danny in worry.
"Listen to us, we know all about Jaws! Why, he's a huge shark that can swallow ships hard, one big monster!" Remy exclaims to Danny then instructs the kitten toy a bit. "Tie ie good and tight, okay? Anyway, it's dangerous! Why..."
"Goodbye, guys." Danny said sadly as he held a paw out as if for a last handshake.
"Goodbye? Us," Emile ask in surprise as he and Remy looks down into the blue water. Then again, the two rats would never forgive themselves if anything were to happen to Danny. Besides, Remy's the kitten toy's conscience, he must help him!
"We may be live bait down there but we're with you all the way." Remy said with a nod as he and Emile got onto the boulder. They both put on air helmets as the two rats prepare themselves. "All right, let's go!"
"LOOK OUT BELOW!" The two rats yell at once as Danny step off the edge and fell down into the water with them. Soon the trio dive into the water. With the rock's weight, the kitten toy is weight down as the three goes to the bottom, the fish and water creatures move out of the way.
"Move it, out of the way down there!"
"Gangway, coming through!' Emile calls out to the other fish. Soon the trio hit the sandy bottom with a thud.
Danny looks around the ocean curiously while saying, "Wow, this is a strange place. Jaws with Hoagie inside him could be anywhere in this underwater world. The two rats grab some rocks to keep themselves from falling off, Remy grabs his hat before it floats away. Danny pulls himself to his feet, walking slowly along the sandy floor with Emile joining him while grabbing the boulder. "Remy, come on."
"Right, we don't need to leave you behind, bro!"
"Right, let me get some balance first..." Remy said as he grabs for a rock nearby. The rat yelps as a Magikarp appears near him. "Oh, move aside, move aside."
Remy puts the rock into his hat and waves goodbye to the Magikarp while saying, "Well, so long." The rat begins to head up but trips and fell upside down due to the rock's weight. The Magikarp smiles as he looks at him upside down, "Uh; must've put it in the wrong way."
Remy got back up and grabs the rock, preparing to put it down his pants. He frowns at the Magikarp looking at him in curiosity then mumbles, "Ugh, this guy doesn't give more privacy than a goldfish." The rat put the rock down his pants and heads off with the Pokemon following him. "Chilly."
"Father; Father," Danny calls out to Hoagie as he and Emile, the rat swam beside him, search through a garden of sea flowers which disappear while the two go past. They reappear...then disappear again when Remy sang up to catch up with his pals.
"Hey, Danny, Emile, come on, wait for me!"
As Remy got back onto the boulder, Emile calls out, "Father! Wait, hang on, he isn't my father. Err, I mean Hoagie, Hoagie!"
Suddenly Remy yelps as the Magikarp, who was following him, grabs his umbrella, pulling him off of the boulder. The rat protests, "Hey, what the...let go, let go!" He pushes the Pokemon off his umbrella then scowl at him, "Go on, beat it, you little..."
Suddenly Remy yelps as a Gyarados appear, growling at him as the Magikarp appears behind him. Obviously the grown up Pokemon doesn't like what the rat is doing to the little guy at all.
"Err, wait; hang on. What's wrong? Can't a guy...I was only..." Remy said nervously as he backs away but trips over a rock. As the Gyarados came up to him with Magikarp, the rat said, "Sorry, sir! I mean no harm. My friends and I are only looking for...Jaws."
The two Pokemon's eyes widen in terror as they swam away very fast. Remy smiles as he said, "Well, that got them."
"Papa, papa." Danny calls again as a lot of sea creatures follow the new stranger, curious about. "Father!"
Suddenly Danny notices a Goldeen swimming around him, making the kitten toy smiles as he said, "Hey there." Danny giggles as the Pokemon swim into his clothes, making him ticklish before swimming out. Danny, spotting the others, exclaims. "Oh! Hey! Can any of you tell me where to find Jaws?"
The sea creatures gasp in terror as they quickly swam off. Danny, looking confused, said in observation, "Wow, they're scared. I wonder why."
Emile goes over to a Cloyster and knocks on it shell, causing the thing to open up. As the rat steps inside, he spoke up, "Hey there, Cloyster. Listen, any chance that you're pals with one Jaws the Shark?"
Suddenly the Cloyster closes up and digs underground with Emile inside it. Then the rat was spit out, with his air helmet in an air bubble. The rat, whose is in another one, poke through it to grabs his air helmet back; but as Emile put his helmet back on, he yelps upon seeing that the bubble that he's in is filling up with water fast.
The bubble pops leaving Emile freed but safe. The rat swam off while mumbling, "Weird."
"Father," Danny calls out as he kept on searching for Hoagie, the boulder that he's pulling now has snails and starfish riding on it.
Remy and Emile, who caught up to Danny, climbs back onto the boulder, pushing off the extra passengers as the former said, "One side, go on! Break it up, break it up." Soon the trio goes through a bunch of seaweed, something begins to happen, "Hey, whoa! Quit shoving!"
As the trio leaves the seaweed forest, the two rats find themselves surrounded by Seadra. The two back away as Emile exclaims, "No crowding, hey, take it easy!"
Danny stops as he saw the Seadra going around him, giggling as they swim around him, one poke his nose. These sea creatures are indeed odd.
Just then Remy rides up to Danny on a back of Seadra, calling out, "Whoa there, steady, girl!" Once the Pokemon calms down, the rat turns to Danny. "All right, Danny, go ahead; ask them."
Danny nods as he begins to ask the Pokemon, "Any chance that you can tell me where I can find Jaws?"
Sure enough, like before, the Seadra make scared noises and swam off, Remy yelps as the one that he's riding tries to throw him off, "Whoa, easy, whoa!" The rat yelps as the Pokemon throws him off, slapping Remy with his tail before swimming off, "Geez."
As the sea creature watch on, Danny and the rats move on, looking for a monster that the sea life around here is scared of.
"Father, father," Danny calls out to Hoagie as the ocean search moves on.
"Hoagie, Hoagie!" Remy and Emily calls out for Hoagie once more. This is going to be one big search.
The search for Hoagie is on but where could he be? In the next chapter, we finally meet Jaws as he begins feeding...and eating Danny while separating him from Remy and Emile! Fortunately, he is reunited with Hoagie, Stitch and Nemo. Read, review and suggest!
