Chapter 2: The Truth
All that I can feel is my heart beating and my dream disappearing. I was having cake with Meta Knight on his magnificent ship. Wow, I would give anything to have a picnic on that huge hunk of metal now. I have no idea when I will be getting back, or if I even will. I didn't even know this Mushroom Kingdom existed until just now, and I have no idea of how to get back if it is even possible.
"Kirby…Kirby." I hear a soft voice near me as I open my eyes that are being singed by the bright sun. I shake my head to wake myself up and hop up. "Good, you are awake. I was beginning to think you were a goner." He chuckled lightly and patted my back. "Don't worry, the monster is gone. It's safe now."
"Yoshi, can you please tell me what is happening? I don't know why I am here or how I even got here. What was that monster that we were hiding from?
"Ah. So much to tell you young Kirby. I assume you are from Dreamland, am I correct?"
"Yes…wait, how did you know that?"
"Us Yoshis were born with the Wisdom of the Universes. We are blessed with the knowledge and wisdom to give answers to those who wish to obtain them. Come, let's walk and I will tell you what you desire to know." We began to walk and our feet pitter-pattered against the soft grass.
"That must be nice, to know everything," I said with a grin on my face.
"That is what you all would think, but our lives are not as wonderful as they seem. You see, our knowledge always goes unnoticed. When Mario and Luigi, our bosses, work to "save" Mushroom Kingdom, we basically just sit in blocks, waiting for them to ride on us, hit us, and hurt us so painfully. Not only that, when they don't need us anymore, they just jump of and leave us to find our way back home. It's horrible being ridden in World 8. That is an ominous, scary and dim World. It's awful having to wander through the labyrinth of darkness that is World 8. They are given such credit for saving the entire universe, while all they do is run around, hit Bowser a couple of times, and that is the end of it. No one gives credit to the Yoshis. Without any of us, Bowser would have taken over our kingdom long ago."
"Oh…I see. What's so bad about Mario and Luigi?" I asked.
"Their name is well known across the universe. They are known as some of the finest and most trusted fighters. Some other worlds have even requested them to help resolve their problems. However, they do not care about saving anyone and they don't care about stopping the evil from filling the universe. They are addicted to the fame, which has poisoned their hearts and souls. At the beginning, they were pure hearted, and they fought with the desire to save everyone. But once their name became well known, they became hooked on fame." I could tell he was angry. It seems like Mario and Luigi really are the bad guys.
"If they are so "famous" then why haven't I ever heard of them?"
"You see, we live in the Jurmes universe. It is the largest galaxy that consists of so many worlds, you have no idea! However, Dreamland is in the Tevlian universe. No one knows how to travel between universes, so it is extremely mind blowing that you ended up here! I must do some tests and show you to the rest of the Yoshis! I could introduce you to my dear Emma!"
"Emma? Who is Emma?"
"Ahh…Emma. Such a lovely name isn't it? Does it not bring you joy just hearing it? Emma? She is the love of my life. What a delight it is too just see her every day. Just don't go falling in love with her. She is mine." He let out a small chuckle. I guess he wanted that to be a joke, even though it wasn't funny. I laughed anyway out of pity. "Well, it is the only happiness I have left ever since terror has fallen upon our kingdom again."
"What has happened to your world?" I asked as I waddled across a small bridge. The theme music in the background sounded sweet and lively, which reminded me of home.
"The real question is what hasn't happened to our kingdom? Our beloved Princess Peach has fallen ill, and it does not look good. It is very likely that she will not survive, and everyone in the kingdom wants to help. She is married to Mario, but he does not hold any royal power since she is only a princess. If she were a queen, it would be much different. Sadly, she does not see that Mario is a soul-sucking demon, which is a shame for she is such a kind-hearted beauty. Well, her sweet sister, Daisy, is already ruling another Kingdom, so she cannot take the crown. It is now a contest between Mario and Luigi as to who will get the crown and rule over our kingdom as if it were some game. All they are doing now is bickering over who will become king, and they are not paying attention to the terror on our land. Bowser has attacked again, and this time, he is even stronger. I did not want you to hit that block because it was probably a trick block. A goomba or Bowser Jr. could have come out of that, and you might have been killed. Even though all us Yoshi's know that they wouldn't survive without us, we need them to beat Bowser. We are not strong enough on our own, and all the Toads are too scared to do anything."
"Well, maybe I could do something!" I blurted out! "I'm assuming I have some power if I can travel through the different universes, and I can suck in any character and take their power to use!"
"Hmm…" Yoshi said. "I guess you are indeed right. However, I will have to do many tests on you, just to see the amount of power you hold."
"What happened to Yoshis knowing all the answers already?" I smiled and laughed lightly. He grinned at me.
"Even the universe does not hold all the answers. Fate will turn into a game of luck, and no one, not even those who control the elements, will know what the dice will show." The sun was starting to set, and the sky looked like a canvas that was freshly painted. The light was dimming and the theme music sounded as if it was a soothing lullaby. Sir Yoshi led me to a tree, which looked like any other ordinary tree.
"Here," he stated. "Here is our lair."
"What lair?" I responded. "This is just a tree" He lifted up a secret panel of bark from the woody plant, which revealed a hidden lock. He took out a key from his boot and unlocked it. He then lifted up another panel in the grass, revealing a hidden keypad. He typed in a long code, and a miniature door opened up.
"Are you coming?" Yoshi asked. He walked inside the tree, down a spiral staircase. I followed after him, and the door quickly locked behind me. There was a giant room filled with Yoshis, all asleep in individual beds. "Now be quiet," he said. "We will rest here and then do some tests tomorrow."
