The Blob

Part X


Blocky and Blob stood a few streets away from City Hall. I don't know how they got there so fast. Maybe it's… just the power of fanfiction.

Sappy violin music begins to play.

"So, Blob… I guess this is goodbye." Blocky held out his twiglike hand. Blob ignored it, still completely oblivious to the world around him.

"Aren't you going to say something?"

Still total silence on Blob's behalf.

Blocky's eyelids drooped in sadness. "I understand. I'm so sorry, Blob. I… don't want to leave you… But you'd be better off with a good, rich owner, who can afford to feed you."

Blob yawned.

"…But… always remember this… Whenever you feel alone in the world… Just remember me. I'll always be there. Maybe not with you in body, but in spirit. Forever. I'll be thinking of you."

A solitary tear ran down his green cheek.

"Well? Can't you see I don't want you anymore?!" Blocky yelled, his eyes clenched together tightly as he tried to cope with the onslaught of tears. Of course, Blob had already oozed away, more than happy to get out of the strange situation.

Blocky was oblivious to this fact. His crudely-drawn arms were lain over his face as he mourned. "Just get out of here, you stupid, dumb animal!" He cried to an empty audience, trying to keep his emotions in check. It was hard to restrain his sorrow.

Blob was already a couple streets away, heading towards a brilliant, circle-shaped light. Unbeknownst to it, that circular light was actually a portal, in progress of being drawn.

Rudy Tabootie poked his hand inside ChalkZone through the portal he'd just drawn, the magic chalk in hand. He had no intentions of going inside. He just wanted a table in his room for a few minutes. So he doodled one up in ChalkZone. Once it had materialized into a solid object, he pulled it back into the real world, not bothering to close the portal behind him.

He and Penny needed a table in his room because…they were eating their lunch. In his room. Because they were going to go in ChalkZone afterwards, or something. And having just gotten home from McDonald's, they decided they'd had enough 'adventure' for the moment. So they were just going to eat lunch in his room instead of in ChalkZone. Okay. Situation explained.

Anyway, in the real world, Rudy and Penny are eating their lunch on the chalk-table Rudy had just dragged into his room. The portal, as you may recall, is still open on the blackboard. The two young pre-teens don't think they're in any danger.

"I can't believe I'm actually eating this bundle of calories." Penny complained for the millionth time, staring down at her cheeseburger as if it were responsible for global warming. The genius girl had not eaten fast food for months after learning how unhealthy it was.

"Penny, Penny, Penny! We're ten! We have high choleroid!"

"Cholesterol." The girl corrected him.

"Gesundheit."

Penny gave him a strange look, but decided to just ignore him. She turned her attention to the French fries, prodding them with disgust, squirming when she noticed just how greasy they really were.

"These things are heart attacks just waiting to happen."

Rudy rolled his eyes and just kept eating.

"I mean, look at them! They don't even look right! They're too salty, very fattening and the grease rubs off on your fing- Ewwww!"

"Come on, Penny. They're not that bad. America's favorite!"

"No, Rudy! There's something on your foot!"

Casually, Rudy glanced down at his shoe. Indeed something was stuck to it. It looked like a very, very large wad of chewing gum.

Then, all of a sudden, that wad began to twitch. Rudy stared.

"What is it?!" Penny squealed. "Oh, it's moving!"

Rudy looked at it closer. He smiled when he noticed its chalk-like surface. "It's made of chalk, Penny. It must've crawled out of the portal when I wasn't looking."

"Well, what are you waiting for? Put it back!"

"Oh, come on! It looks harmless! It's even a little cute." Rudy patted the squishy matter with the palm of his hand.

Bad idea. Two rows of sharp, pointed teeth dug into the poor artist's digit.

"AAAAAAIYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEE!"

And just like that, a new terror had been released to an entire other world.
