Chapter 8: The Beginning of an Everlasting Friendship

Chapter 8: The Beginning of an Everlasting Friendship

The next day Luigi woke up and ate breakfast. He touched the cheek Daisy had kissed him on, still feeling as if she still made an impression on it. Luigi felt like it was a normal day, except for two things: Daisy, the girl he now has a crush on, and the fact that Luigi is in charge of protecting the Mushroom Kingdom, since Mario and Peach are away on their honeymoon. Luigi really wanted to see Daisy again, and she did say, "We should do this again sometime." Luigi was worried that this little, get-together, or "date" as Mr. Wang would say, wouldn't end as well as it did, so he went to Mr. Wang's apartment for advice. Luigi hopes that he might have something useful to say, despite him knowing as much about girls as Luigi. When he got to the apartment, Luigi explained his plea for help. "Hmm, well how 'bout I come with you and I prevent you from doing anything stupid, or, if it's too late, try help you from looking like an idiot." Luigi thought, thinking Mr. Wang's presence would be kind of awkward. Plus, what if Mr. Wang made him look more stupid than he made himself look? "C'mon buddy! What's the worst that could happen?" "Many things," Luigi thought. "Many, many things."

Luigi met up with Daisy at the tennis court, Mr. Wang tagging along with. "Hi Luigi." She gave him a girly wave and smile, which was a little out of character for Daisy. Daisy noted a strange oriental man standing next to Luigi. She recognized him as one of the people at Mario and Peach's wedding. "Who's he?" Daisy asked. "Hi, I'm Jason, Mr. Jason Wang, but just call me Mr. Wang." "He's a friend of mine," Luigi added. Daisy nodded and turned to Luigi looking at her nervously. "What's the matter? Worried you'll lose to a girl?" Luigi was just a bit shy, but he too, had a competitive attitude, and talked back fast. "No I'm just worried if you'll get real mad when you lose that you'll kick my ass." Daisy smirked. "You don't need to lose to get your ass kicked." Mr. Wang did the "ooh" gesture. "Are you gonna take that from her?" Luigi looked ready to play a hard game. About 20 minutes or so passed as they continued on. They played a long game, but Daisy had scored adv. Then Luigi missed a pass from Daisy and took its second bounce. "See? You still got your ass-kicking!" Luigi looked dumbfounded and put his hand over his face. Mr. Wang looked at his friend. "Dude, did you let her win?" "No! And shut up!" Mr. Wang meant it in a good way, just asking if he did it to make Daisy feel better about herself. However, he learned Luigi actually tried… and failed. Luigi noticed the famous, and infamous, athletic prowess Daisy is known for. "Whoa, she's tough!" Mr. Wang remarked. "Your friend has the right idea," Daisy said in a cocky tone. Much pride was in her voice. "C'mon! Let me play you!" Luigi tried whispering to Mr. Wang to stop. "No! Jason, what are you doing?! This is my date, err, get-together! Back off!" "I accept!" It was too late. Daisy accepted Mr. Wang's challenge. Luigi didn't want Mr. Wang to make him seem weak, letting his friend do the work. Mr. Wang highly anticipated the coming game considering his natural athletic abilities, being a Mii. Baseball wasn't all he played. "Let's go!" Luigi was seeing déjà vu as the two played. It much reminded him of his own game. Each scoring one point, and the other matching it. Then Mr. Wang scored adv. Daisy scored and it was a deuce again. "Whew! You tired yet?" Daisy asked. Mr. Wang was surprised Daisy hadn't gotten tired earlier considering her earlier game with Luigi. She was filled with energy, and nothing seemed to faze her. Then Mr. Wang hit adv., and then the next serve, Daisy hit it out. "And that's how we do it back home! Good game Daisy! Good game!" Mr. Wang shook her hand and patted her on the back. Daisy wasn't frustrated at all. She played sports for the sake of competition, but for the first time in a long time, she played, and had fun. The games she played with Mr. Wang and Luigi were nothing but fun today, save for some trash talk earlier. "I can tell, we'll all be good friends in the coming times..." Luigi felt discomforted at the word "friend," remembering Mr. Wang's story about him being in the "friend zone" with the girl he liked, but then thought, "Well, gotta start somewhere." Mr. Wang put his arms around Luigi and Daisy's necks, bringing the three closer together. "I can tell, this is a beginning of an everlasting of an everlasting friendship." Mr. Wang and Daisy laughed, as Luigi weakly tried to pretend laugh, still discomforted by the fact he's nothing more a friend to Daisy, at least for the time being... For now they were now an unlikely trio, slowly turning into a trio of inseparable friends. Suddenly, a familiar creature laughing maniacally was heard in the distance. "Oh crap! I forgot to protect the kingdom! Bowser! Oh no!" Luigi ran to the hills chasing down his enemy, Daisy and Mr. Wang right behind him...

Author Notes: There you have it. Don't worry. If you like it, there will be plenty more on this trio. If you don't, please tell me what's on your mind why, and I'll fix it in the future.
