Chapter 1

Mario was talking to everyone at the party while Luigi sat in the corner. It was only two days since he rescued him from King Boo at the mansion. Everyone was crowding over Mario and asking him what happened, what he did, and how did he escape. Mario paused at that last question and finally answered:

"I did what I always do. Fight to my last breath!"

Luigi was shocked in the corner and got up. He walked over to Mario and grabbed his shirt. "Bro," he said, "Tell them what REALLY happened." Mario was looking down. "Okie-dokie."

Luigi let go and Mario adjusted his clothes and hat and started talking again. "My little bro, Luigi, wants me to tell a more detailed story," Luigi's face turned into an angry one. "Luigi had won a mansion, and told me to go check it out. I went up to it and next thing I knew, a ghost was grabbing me and shoved me into a portrait. Then a Boo with a crown came and started to monologue. I looked for a wait out and slammed on the painting and it fell and I destroyed King Boo."

Everyone was shocked and laughed at Mario's tale. Luigi couldn't take it anymore.

"DAMMIT, MARIO! WHY MUST YOU ALWAYS DO THIS?"

Mario just stared at Luigi.

"YOU KNOW FOR A FACT THAT I SAVED YOUR SORRY ASS!"

Everyone looked puzzled. Mario asked,

"I don't know what you're talking about, Luigi…"

Then Toadsworth, while sitting on a chair drinking tea, said,

"So, Luigi. The tension has finally got to you."

"What do you mean?" Luigi asked.

"You've always been jealous of Mario!" Peach exclaimed.

"JEALOUS? MARIO ALWAYS GETS THE CREDIT!" Luigi said.

"Bro, I think you've had too much to drink…" Mario said.

"SHUT YOUR DAMN MOUTH, YOU JACK WAGON!" Luigi said.

"'Jack Wagon?'" Toad asked.

"Okay, Luigi, if you REALLY saved me, PROVE IT!" Mario said.

Luigi had to think for a moment. How COULD he prove it?

"Well, there's the Poltergust 3000!" Luigi told them.

"I'll just call up Professor E. Gadd and tell him to bring it here!"

Luigi went over to the telephone and called the Professor's number. It rang and rang, but nobody answered. Finally the answering machine came up and it was E. Gadd's voice! It said:

"I am terribly sorry I can't come to the phone right now, I am currently studying in a foreign land and have taken all of my inventions with me! Please leave a message at the tone!"

Luigi slammed the phone down.

"Okay, Mario, YOU'LL SEE! I'll find evidence that absolutely PROVES that I saved you from the haunted mansion!"

"Hey! I got an idea! Why don't we name it 'MARIO'S MANSION!'" Peach contributed.

Luigi got angry and left. Outside on the porch Toad came out and sat next to him.

"I know you did it, Luigi." He said.

Luigi stared at him. "Really? You do?"

"Of course I do! I was there with you, remember?"

Luigi pondered for a moment and tried to remember what happened that night at the mansion.

"I think I do…" He said.

"Well, THIS will help even more!" Toad said with jumper cables in his hands.

"Wait… WHAT?" Luigi yelled.

Toad clipped them on Luigi's ears and Luigi was jumping up and down with electricity going through every vein of his body.

When Toad stopped he asked if he remembered.

"I think… y-y-yeesss…." Luigi said, out of breath.

"Yes I do. You helped me defeat King Boo!"
