Chapter 2: In Which Ants Own ALL the Pants!

The foursome are climbing a gigantic anthill, slightly resembling a giant volcano.

Sonic: How'd we get here so damn fast? We only started out last chapter!

Kirby: *shrugs* ..fan-fic time warp?

*Kyra and Rio appear out of nowhere*

Both: Leeeet do the Tiiiiiiiime Warp agaaaaaain!!!

Mario:….Kaaaaaaay…that was…….peculiar

Crash: You know..this quest thingy's actually easier than I thought it would be

Sonic: *has an oh-crap-this-idiot-just-jinxed-us look on his face*

Crash: I expected something more..horrible. Like there'd be fire…

*the ant hill suddenly bursts into a raging green inferno*

Kyra: a GREEN inferno?

Rio: *shrug*

Crash: There'd be boiling hot lava….

*lava explodes from the top of the hill and tumbles down toward them*

Crash:..and something bad would happen to our equipment…

Kirby: O_O MY SWORD'S MELTING!!

Crash: …and then we'd probably get captured or something by the horrible insect natives armed with powers and weapons beyond all mortal comprehension.

*horrible insect natives armed with powers and weapons beyond all mortal comprehension suddenly surround them*

All:……….

Sonic: *slowly turns to Crash with an icy glare* I hate you…..

Mario: *hopefully* I'm SURE they'll listen to reason and we can all sort this out like adults…from random videos games.

Kirby:…bah?

Mario: *points at him* Ok, you. No more from you today.
