Hi people… (laughs nervously) I know I haven't updated this story in like about three years, (the same as the other one) and finally I thought I do it. So, I'm really sorry for the wait and I promise I will finish this story along with the other one I have.
Shaggy put Scooby down and nervously glanced around, "Like, what was that?"
"That was the 'Overhill Ghost'," a voice behind them said and Shaggy and Scooby jumped and saw an old man step out from what looked like his office.
"The 'Overhill Ghost?" Fred raised his eyebrow and the old man nodded.
"Just some ghost whose been haunting us for two months now," he said tiredly with a sigh, "Been losin' business because of him too."
"I'm sorry to hear about that," Daphnie said with a tone of pity.
"No, don't be, I was going to retire anyway so…" he drifted off and a look of sorrow met his features, "Well, if I was you kids I would leave and heed the ghost's warning."
"That sounds like a good idea," Scooby and Shaggy, as well as an awoken Ussop and Chopper, headed for the door.
"Wait Uncle Scooby! He needs our help," Scrappy held onto Shaggy's shirt and Scooby's tail.
"And your staying here too boys," Nami said darkly and gave him the look that sent shivers down his spine.
"Is there anything we can do to help?" Vivi asked full of concern and the man shook his head.
"No my child, nobody can help us now I'm afraid," he said sadly.
"But there is a way," Fred said and everyone looked at him.
"Oh boy, I smell a mystery," Shaggy said worryingly and rubbed his head.
"Rah," Scooby made another try for the door.
Scrappy grabbed him, "I don't think so Uncle Scooby."
"Yay! A mystery!" Luffy smiled and the crew sweatdropped.
"Do you even know what a 'mystery' is?" Zoro asked and Sanji exhaled smoke.
"Don't bother even trying to change his mine, he's too stubborn," he said and took another puff.
"Yes, we can try to figure out whose behind all this," Fred said and the man sighed.
"You may do what you want. I don't care as much as I should anymore. Just promise you won't bring an old man's hopes up," with that he walked away and left the gang with the crew.
"So, gang, are you up to it?" Fred asked.
"No," Scooby and Shaggy said and everybody nodded.
"What about them?" Velma pointed to the crew in back of them.
"I don't know… Guys, would you be up to helping us solve the mystery?" he asked and Luffy smiled wide.
"No!" Ussop and Chopper cried as the rest of the crew gave a nod.
"Alright then, we'll go to our rooms and everyone keep an eye out for something funny, okay?"
Everyone in the room nodded and grabbed their keys.
"Hey, Scooby!" Shaggy whispered as they walked to there rooms, "Lets go check out the kitchen!"
"Rah!" Scooby smiled and Luffy turned to them with a smile, hearing they're whispering.
"Yeah! Let's go!" he jumped up and down eagerly and they each walked to the kitchen.
"Hey, where'd you think there going?" Zoro asked Sanji who shrugged.
"I don't know."
"Sanji!" Nami called and he leapt right to her feet.
"Yes my beloved Nami?" he drooled and looked at her with hearts in his eyes.
"Would you carry these to my room? There kind of heavy," she threw the luggage she had on the floor and he picked them up with care.
"Of coarse my beauty!" he followed her to her room, prancing along the way.
Zoro sweatdropped, "Idiot."
"Like, on your mark, get set… GO!!" he dove into his plate stacked with food, and Luffy and Scooby followed, shoving food into their mouths as fast as they could.
Seconds went by and each plate was clean, with only the trace of small crumbs. The three boys held their bellies as they burped and sighed.
"Like, who won? I lost track," Shaggy asked and Luffy shrugged.
"Reats me," Scooby said while eating another piece of bread.
"Hey! We were looking for you guys!" Chopper and Ussop walked in and stared at the three.
"What are you guys doing?" Ussop asked as he saw the mess in the kitchen.
"Eating," Luffy said simply as he watched Shaggy make a sandwich, drool falling from the young captains face.
Shaggy put the sandwich down and turned to get another ingredient. Scooby and Luffy took this chance to eat what they could from his sandwich before he turned.
"Like, who ate my sandwich?" he looked around the room and saw Luffy and Scooby with fat cheeks.
"I on't o," Luffy said with crumbs flying from his mouth.
Chopper and Ussop sweatdropped at the scene before them as Shaggy looked at them with a glare. Chopper looked at the table before him and smiled.
"A carrot!" he took and ate it, watching as Shaggy made another sandwich.
"Well, we should—AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!" Ussop pointed behind them with wide eyes as he screamed and the three turned around slowly.
"I see you did not heed my warning! You all will suffer the consequences!" he bellowed and tried to grab them.
"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" Scooby and Shaggy ran but Luffy punched the ghostly figure with wide eyes and followed with the rest of them.
They ran down the hall and fell down with a scream as they almost ran into the rest of the crew and gang.
"What happened?" Robin asked with worry as she saw her crewmates on the floor looking as if they would die of a heart attack any second.
"WE SAW THE GHOST!" they cried and pointed towards the kitchen.
"Really! Where?" Scrappy looked around in excitement.
"The ghost?" Velma said and looked towards the kitchen.
"Rah," Scooby said and did an impersonation of the ghostly phantom.
"Like, he tried to kill us," Shaggy cried, "Freddie, can we please go now?"
"No, we told the old man we would help him," Fred said in a firm voice and Shaggy got up from the floor.
"Like, tell him we couldn't do it! He'll understand."
Fred simply shook his head and Daphnie sighed, "Will you guys feel better if I gave you a whole box of Scooby Snacks?" (A.N.-classic…lol)
"Oh no, your not tricking us this time Daphnie," Shaggy crossed his arms.
"Rah rah rah rah!" Scooby wagged his tail and Shaggy looked at him in amazement.
"Scooby-Doo!" Shaggy hit his head and Daphnie smiled.
"All right, but in order to get the snacks you will have to be willing to stay," Daphnie said and Scooby nodded.
He puffed out his chest and did a solute.
"That mutt betrayed me," Shaggy hit his head again and Luffy cocked his head.
"What's a Scooby Snack?"
