A/N: Hey look I'm not dead. I know its been months since I updated but life has been filled with unwanted surprises. Thanks for the patients people! I'll try to update my other stories as soon as I can.

Disclaimer: I own nothing except the basic plot line of this story and a box of cookies.

Chapter 8

Tires squealed, engine revved, and curse words flew as the Grand Prix speed across the driveway. Vlad Plasmius was hanging on to the windshield wipers and Maddie took a sharp turn, nearly causing him to fly off.

Vlad growled as he summoned up an energy blast. He placed his hand on the hood of the car in hopes of the engine overheating. As Maddie saw this she took another sharp turn, causing Vlad to fly off since he was only holding on by one hand.

"Ahh!" Vlad screamed as he was thrown from the car, rolling on the ground as he landed. "That's it, no more Mr. Nice Plasmius!" Vlad dusted himself off and took off into the air. He charged up an ecto blast and sent it hurtling towards the car. The blast hit its target, just below the back bumper, causing the back tires to explode.

Maddie screamed as she tried to gain control of the car. Danny held on to his seat for dear life. "Mom, what's going on?!"

"Hang on Danny, he blew out our tires!" Maddie turned the wheel to the right, trying to get the car out of its fishtailing. She accidentally stepped on the brakes, causing the car to start to spin, and sending off the road.

Thankfully the Fenton's were wearing their seat belts.

"Honey is you alright?" A very concerned mother asked as she gave Danny a once over.

Danny playfully swatted his mother's hands away. "I'm fine mom that was nothing." He gave Maddie a reassuring smile.

"Oh how cute." Vlad spat. "I just love these mushy bonding moments, don't you?"

"Stay away from us Vlad!" Maddie demanded.

"Or what? You'll run me over?" Vlad cackled. He them turned his had intangible and grabbed Danny, dragging him from the car.



Maddie's eyes narrowed, a scowl penetrated her normally cheerfull face. She unbuckled her seat belt, and climbed out of the car. She searched for any type of weapon, but found none. Think Maddie, think. Danny needs you! She grinned when she spotted a rather nice sized rock. Picking it up she threw it at Vlad, who was taunting Danny. Maddie was a great marksman and hit Vlad square in the side of the head.

He yelped with pain and lost his grip on Danny.

"Madeline, you'll pay for that!" Vlad's eyes flashed a deathly red. "If I can't have you…no one can!" He charged up an ecto blast, aimed it at the mother and son. "I wish things would have turned out differently, but you both have made the wrong decisions. But I will give you one last chance, leave the buffoon and stay here with me."

"In your dreams you pig!" Maddie spat.

"I'd rather spend an eteranty with the box ghost." Maddie giggled at that.

"Fine, you leave me no other choice." He fired his ecto blast.

Mother and son closed their eyes and hugged each other, waiting for their untimely demise. After nothing had happened, they opened their eyes to see that they were surrounded by a green dome of light, Danny's ghost shield.

"Danny your powers…there back!" Maddie smiled.

"Yes! Now to take out the trash." Danny got into a battle stance, grinned, and let out his signature battle. "I'm going ghost!"

Maddie stood in awe again as two white-blue rings surrounded her son, transforming him into the ghost boy that she once wanted to dissect.

"Go get him Danny." Maddie cheered.

Danny took down the shield that was protecting them from Vlad's pathetic attempts at breaking the shield.

"Hey Vlad, want to play a little game?" Danny asked playfully. He had waited a long time to finally throw everything he had at the psychopathic billionaire.

"Daniel you have no chance against me. You can't win." Vlad smirked.

"Vlad how many times have you actually beaten me? That's right none!"

Vlad growled and fired at Danny, but he ducked out of the way just in time. Too bad for the tree that had

"You fool, you've always had help. But your little friends aren't here to save you now are they. It's just you and me. You know you can't win, I've had these powers for twenty years!" Vlad fired at Danny again, who was unable to avoid it, and was sent careening into a tree.

"Danny!" Maddie yelled. She was hiding behind the car, incase a stray blast came her way. She wanted Danny to be able to defeat Vlad on his own, but hey he's only fourteen.

Maddie panicked trying to find a way to help her son. She grinned when she saw ecto-grenade next to a tire.

She picked it up and threw it at Vlad, exploding right under his feet, causing him to fall from the sky.

Danny took his distraction to his advantage. He threw a volley of attacks at Vlad. Ranging from a simple ghost stinger to his newly developed ice power. The latter took the ghostly billionaire by surprise.

Danny laughed at Vlad's attempt to escape his ice prison. "Mom, now what do we do with him?" Danny asked.

"Why don't you go back into the castle and find a Fenton Thermos." Evil grins crept onto the Fenton's faces.

"Oh chocolate covered cherries!" Vlad cursed as he was sucked into the Fenton Thermos.

"What should we do with him?" Maddie asked.

"I know a place. We just need to make a pit stop on the way home through the Ghost Zone." Danny capped the thermos and put it over his shoulders. "Shall we?" Danny held out his hand which Maddie took. He slowly took to the sky, giggling as his mother let out a shriek.

A run in with the box ghost and stop by Clockworks later, Maddie and Danny found themselves at the Fenton Portal.

"Not a moment to soon." Maddie said as she looked at her watch, it was almost six. "I told your sister if we didn't show up by now that she should tell Jack and come after us."

"I'm surprised we didn't meet on the way here, Jazz is so overprotective." Danny flew them back into the world of the living.

Jazz thought she heard something from in the basement, so she made a lame excuse and went down to investigate. She let out a sigh of relief when she saw her mother and brother down there. I think they need some time to talk. I'm just glad their ok.

"Mom, can I ask you something?" Danny transformed back into human form.

"Sweetie, you can ask me anything." Maddie put her arm around her son's shoulder.

"Why did you wake up and how did you know where to go?" Danny looked up at his mom.

Maddie smiled. "Well, I guess you could call it 'A Mother's Intuition'."

The End

A/N: Yes that's it. This story got to 31 pages on Microsoft Word! There may be a sequel. If you missed anything, Vlad was taken to Clockworks were he will reside for now. Jazz didn't tell Jack, and all is right with the world…at least for now.

Thanks to all who reviewed. I would list you all…but I need to get to bed.

So tell me how you liked it…come on you know you want to!
