"Geez! I don ta have ears anda dey hurt." The ghost scowled as the man in green finished screaming.
Each man remained mostly silent, the living one gasping for air after the prolonged scream.
"Okay, yua ready ta talkeh now?"
"W-what are you do-doing here?" Luigi manage to stutter.
"I'ma dead, brother." The ghost replied. "I think I cannah go wherever I wan'"
"L-lucky you." The prisoner paused to gather his composure. "Meanwhile I'm stuck here and my friends are likely to be charged with a myriad of crimes."
"Yua built dis aplaiz." Mario's spirit replied. "How cannah yua be stuk?"
"Because I built it. It's impossible to escape."
"But yura Mario. Din't yua always sey noding iz impozzibul?"
"A guy can be wrong."
"Zo beah wrong. Escape." The ghost started to fade away. "Now, Ivah got a pokeh game ta catch."
Luigi smiled as a thought crossed his mind. "Maybe I should prove myself wrong." He muttered to himself.
"Queen Toadstool! Queen Toadstool!" A shroomer came running into the royal bedroom. "The castle is under assault!"
"By whom?" The woman I pink asked as she turned away from the dresser.
"We...don't know..." The shroomer hesitated. "They just attacked the east dungeon. We need to get you out of here!"
"Have you gotten everyone else out?" The queen sighed, following the attendant.
"Everyone except Princess Daisy. I'm surprised you didn't hear the alarm yourself."
"I was...preoccupied." Peach said, thinking back to the document's she left on her dresser. "Let's just get out of here."
The shroomer sat in the middle of what looked like a regular stone cell, meditating. There was no busting out of this cell. It had been designed to hold many far stronger than he, after all.
Of course, no one had ever accounted for the glowing sphere that came in through the cell's high window. "Hey, Toady! Hear you might be I need of some help."
"I hang out with the Mario's, Wanda." The shroomer smiled, opening his eyes. "When don't I need help?"
(A/N: Ok, sorry about the short chapter. There's no excuse for it. My biggest problem is that when I write on paper, I'll fill out three sheets of paper, then type it up and not even get one. Next chapter should be longer though, as it deals mostly with Maria, Captain Syrup, and Daisy.)
