They had been flying for at least another 20 Minutes (after plying Cujo from a flustered Amorpho's back) and Maddie was getting tired. Being a human, it was a strain to fly instead of walk. Danny didn't have the slightest problem, but Maddie brushed it off as on account of age.
"So Danny, why did you go in here before?" Maddie said, trying to sound casual so Danny would slip up. Unfortunately Danny noticed.
"One of the times wasn't my fault Mom. The Specter Speeder slammed into forward while I was in it. You guys were…out for the day, and it took me a while to get back. But I'm fine, and that's what matters." He said to her worried face.
Maddie nodded. She decided that she'd have to keep a closer eye on Danny from now on.
"Dora!" She heard coming from Danny, and it almost made her jump.
"I'm sorry, who be-eth you?" Came a light voice, and Maddie turned around. In front of her was a woman who looked like she was from the Medieval Period. She wore a blue and green dress that had lace, and-what she thought the word was-bodice. It was a little puffy at the ends.
Her hairstyle was done like a braid going down her back, and a braid forming a crown around her head. Her skin was green. She was an obvious ghost.
"Dora, you don't recognize me?" Danny said nervously. He floated up to Dora so that his mother only saw his backside. Then carefully, he made his eyes flash green.
"Oh! Sir Ph-" "Fenton." Danny finished for her, and she cocked an eyebrow. He wiggled his shoulder as a gesture to Maddie, and she nodded in understanding.
"What a surprise to see you here! Like this. Umm, what can I do you for? I am indebted to you after all." Dora said, bowing at the waist.
"Oh it's nothing like that Dora. I was wondering, how far is it to Frostbite? Where are we now?" Danny said, and Dora clutched her chin in thought.
"Well Sir Fenton, we are in the Tall Terror zone, and the Far Frozen sector is at least another 500 miles away. I'm sorry, but it will take a good amount of time for you to reach your destination." Dora said, her brows furrowing.
"Would you like an escort there?" Dora said, motioning to a carriage behind her.
"Well I wouldn't want to impose Dora. How are things going at your kingdom without Aragon?" Danny said, smiling.
"Oh, things are going well indeed! We have reached the color television period, and everyone is much happier than they've been in years. Of course, old habits die hard, and everyone still has a trace of the old language in them. Even thee, is having troubles." Dora said, smiling sheepishly.
"Well, it's great to hear you're adjusting. We have to go now, bye!" Danny said, and Dora cursied, then made way to her carriage as the skeleton horses rode it off.
"Care to explain?" Maddie said, hands on her hips. "Not right now, maybe later." Danny said, and went to go call for Cujo. Maddie huffed.
But Danny was right. Now wasn't the time to be asking questions and talking about ti. Another 500 miles! That could take another 2 days. Not to mention the ghosts…
But Maddie was starting to discover that maybe the ghosts wouldn't be that much of a problem. Her son…well…this trip was revealing some things about him that she was interested to observe. Maybe this trip would pull them even closer than the one to Colorado!
Who knew that flying in the ghost zone, ghosts attacking you at every corner, yourself defenseless, you might come to an actual revelation.
Sorry about the short chapter, but everyone was saying "WE WANT DORA!" So I gave you Dora. There. WHOO! Chapter done. I'm having a little trouble on what to say in these chapters and who to use. Keep on giving me different ghosts! I need more ideas! Here's a review I got from Ali Phantom. Look how funny it is!
Alright, new chapter! New one soon I hope.
How's this for a ghost encounter, Maddie starts too feel a little left out and jumps the gun when a big scary ghost with horns trys to attack Danny by bowing at his feet.
Frostbite: Oh great one, I was hoping to meet you on my way back from...
AP: Great, now I have to think of a way for him to be way over... wherever Danny and Maddie are...
Frostbite: On my way back from getting the groceries! Yep, I really love those things you humans call... MilkBones? Yes, and the little red box is very interesting. The one on the front cover looks alot like my younger brother, Jack. I remember when I showed him these things, he laughed really hard... Okay, he left but he laughed eventually... I think... I was born in a log cabin in the woods... Or am I a Yeti? Help me great one, I'm having indentity issues!
Danny to Maddie: He'll do this for a few more hours, let's just go...
Wow, I can rant... I need to lay off the sugar... for a month.
