How it All Began
Okay so I'm putting White Mage from Mario Hoops 3 on 3 in here. She's just going to be a minor character. I've never actually seen her in any other Mario game, and when I searched her and Black Mage, Final Fantasy came up o_o. xD Lol um so yeah. Her name will be Isabell (Or Bell is what they call her.)
The entire day for everyone went pretty fast. Daisy had officially become everyone's friend, and Luigi's girlfriend as well. Death glares were sent when they saw Brandon back in school, but nothing too big.
Peach and Mario laughed at Luigi's story as they walked into their chemistry class.
"It's amazing how you always fall when she kisses you!" laughed Mario.
Luigi blushed and frowned. "Why do you always find humor in my pain?" he said. Mario chuckled and lowered the green hat onto his brothers face.
Luigi growled and lifted it back up to be greeted by large blue eyes. "Hey cutie~," said Daisy, kissing his nose.
A large blush covered his face. "H-hi, Daisy," he stuttered. Daisy giggled and hugged him, then Peach. "I'm gonna have to start getting used to this..." chuckled Peach.
The teacher walked in with a snort. "Alright students, get a partner and sit down. The instructions are on the board, so begin your experiment," he said, sitting down at his desk.
Luigi scratched the back of his head, "D-Daisy, do you want to-"
"I get Peeee-Cassandra!" Daisy called, grabbing Peach's arm. Luigi sighed in defeat.
Mario grabbed Peach's hand and glared at Daisy. "No way, she's with me," he said, pointing at himself. They began to stare eachother down while Peach chuckled nervously.
Daisy suddenly pulled Peach and dragged her to a table. "Ah ha, sorry Mario," Peach said, waving to him.
Mario smiled and walked to the table next to them with Luigi.
"Oh, Cassandra, your hair looks nice," said a shy guy sitting behind her.
"Thank you," she said politely. The shy guy looked over to Mario, who was sending him a deathly glare. The shy guy immediatly started to go back to his work, along with the koopa troopa who was staring at Peach.
They all began mixing chemicals and writing results down. Luigi nervously looked at Mario back an forth, who was hastily mixing things that shouldn't be mixed together. "Bro, follow the instructions!" whispered Luigi.
Mario laughed, "That's funny. Alright, now let's put the wood in here..." he muttered. He inserted the wooden stick into the glowing green liquid. He pulled it out and they both watched as it began to change colors. "Ha! We don't need instructions. Look how orange it's turning," laughed Mario.
Luigi lifted up the papers. "It says here that it's supposed to turn green..." he replied.
The wood suddenly burst into flames. "Oh crap!" shouted Mario, dropping it. The fire slowly creeped throughout the floor.
"FIRE!" screamed a student. Mario and Luigi quickly ran over to Peach and Daisy. The teacher took the fire extinguisher in the classroom and put out the fire. Many people sighed in relief and Mario turned to Luigi.
"I /told/ you to follow the instructions, Luigi!" he said.
"WHAT! Don't try blaming this on me! I didn't do anything!" Luigi hollered back.
The teacher just sighed. "It was just an accident, I'm sure... Is everyone alright?" he asked. Everyone nodded in agreement. "Mario, let you're brother do the experimenting from now on."
"Yes sir..." Mario mumbled. He saw Peach giggling at the corner of his eye.
By the end of the period, Luigi somehow managed to shock himself with the power chord. "You two are like the clutzy brothers!" laughed Daisy as they walked to their.
They saw Yoshi run up to them, but stopped and looked questionably at Luigi and Daisy holding hands.
"I'm missing something here..." he said.
Mario laughed. "You're becoming one with the monkeys and straying from us," he reffered to the DK Crew.
Yoshi pouted. "No... They just treat me like family in a way," he said, and then smiled.
Mario pet his head like an animal. "Oh, I'm just kidding, Squirt," he said. Yoshi's heart sank and a flash went through his head.
"W-w-will you be back in time for my b-birthday next week?" cried six year old Yoshi to his father, tears streaming down his lush green face.
His father smiled sadly and bent down. "I'm sorry Squirt, but probably not... But I'll make it up to you. When I come back, we'll spend the whole day together. I promise," he said, petting his son's head. Yoshi jumped into his father's arms. "I love you, Dad..."
His father hugged him back. "I love you too, Squirt." And with that, Yoshi Sr. had quickly left, unable to see his son cry anymore.
Yoshi's eyes turned a dark red and he growled viciously at Mario. "Don't... Call me... Squirt..." he growled. Mario grimaced and took a step back, as well as the rest of them. In a short time, Yoshi's eyes turned back to the deep blue they always were.
"I-I'm so sorry... I'll meet you all in the stadium..." he stuttered, and quickly ran off.
"I don't think he likes that nickname," said Peach. Mario chuckled nervously and scratched the back of his head. "Heh... Woops."
"Alright newbies, let's get this straight here. You will try out for Strikers. If you don't make it, then boo hoo. I don't wanna hear no babies comin' up to me about how they didn't make it!" shouted the Strikers director, Rebecca posing in some sort of uniform next to him, "And you better train hard to beat Rebecca here. She's a champion."
"Champion at being a slut," murmered Daisy, making a few kids laugh. The director pointed at her. "Watch it Daisy. I ain't kikcing you out right now because you came in second place last year. Now, if you think that you won't feel any pain in this tournament, you're /dead/ wrong. I will announce this now: If you have any sort of health conditions such as anxiety or heart problems, asthma, and such that can effect your energy, leave now," he said. A few kids had left the stadium.
"Now, only eleven of you shall make it in. The twelvth spot was given to Rebecca since she was the overall champion last year. A uniform will be specially fit for those of you who make it, such as this one," he explained, pointing to Rebecca. Her top was short, ending right at her rib cage. It was purple, and the top was made of a metal protective like material. It was long sleeved, the elbow and shoulder pads made of metal, as well as her gloves. Her pants were extremely short, and her knee pads, shin guards, and the top of her sneakers were metal. In a way, she looked like a professional, and a model as well.
"This is the girls' uniform. The boys' uniform will be different of course. Everything else shall be explained if you make it," the director clapped, "alright, let's get these tryouts started!"
Everyone began to follow him to the feild, when Rebecca stopped in fron of a tall girl with short orange hair and a white hoodie. "Ha! What're you doing here witch freak? This is /Strikers/, not the magic club," she said.
Peach began watching. "Who's that?" she asked Daisy.
"Bell. She can be nice at times, but she hardly talks to anyone. It's something about not trusting anyone or something. She's also obsessed with witchcraft and black magic," said Daisy.
They watched as Bell began to lift her hands up. "Yes," she said soflty, "I know this is not a magic club. But if you would like me to show you magic, I know a spell that can fix that hideous look on you're face," she looked at Rebecca up and down, "and your aura is very dull."
Many kids began to laugh, but a few were making fun of Bell. Rebecca scoffed and turned around. "You're just jealous," she said and began to walk away, swaying her hips.
Everyone followed and they were onto the feild. It was huge, but the stadium was even bigger. Almost the entire Mushroom Kingdom could fit in there. "Now then," started the director, "the first test is about speed. We shall bring out a giant red koopa shell and it will follow you for a minute and thirty seconds. Since you have no gear, it will be slower than usual from the actual game. Who's first?"
A few kids took a step back, and others muttered to eachother on who should go first. "I'll go," said Yoshi.
Rebecca laughed, "Shouldn't you be back at home in your dog house?"
Yoshi growled, "Shouldn't you be getting tested for STD's and AIDS?" Mario fell on the floor laughing hysterically, as well as a many others. Diddy Kong jumped on Yoshi's back.
"Ha ha, good one buddy!" he laughed, giving Yoshi a high five and strolled off.
"Alright alright, Yoshi, get in the middle of the feild," said the director. Yoshi obeyed and saw Rebecca throw in the giant red shell, chasing after him.
To others, the red shell went by pretty fast, but to Yoshi, it was extremely slow. He quickly began running and was already halfway through the field while the red shell was still at the beginning.
"I'm gonna turn it up," said Rebecca, turning the notch on the remote to high. Still, Yoshi outran it.
"Yeah, go green bud!" cheered Donkey Kong, following Luigi and Peach.
One minute and thirty seconds passed and Yoshi wasn't even out of breath.
The director started writing things down on his chart. "Nice... Very nice... Now who's next?" he said.
Peach was about to raise her hand until someone stepped foward and smirked. "I will," said Brandon, giving a seductive look at Peach and Daisy. Mario pulled her back. "Fucking creep," he hissed quietly.
"Alright now! I want the following eleven people in front of me!" hollered the director to the many kids who were either sitting down, gasping for breath, or clothes full of dirt. They had taken many tests through speed, strength, agility, and how well they can actually play soccer.
"These the people that're gonna be part of the tourny?" asked Donkey Kong. The director nodded and said, "If I don't call your name, then tryouts are over for you. I want Wario and Waluigi to step foward," they cheered obnoxiously and ran in front of the crowd, "Isabella and Yoshi, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong," Diddy Kong cheered and jumped on Donkey Kong's back, making Yoshi smile, "Daisy and Luigi, Cassandra, Mario and Brandon. That's it! Everyone else, go home!" finished the director.
Rabecca walked in front of Daisy. "You got lucky," she snarled. Daisy just laughed and turned around to hug Luigi.
"I can't believe we actually have a talent in sports," said Luigi. Mario laughed. "I'm not surprised about me, but more about how you didn't wimp out!" he said. Luigi growled and punched Mario's shoulder.
The director smiled. "I must say, in these categories, here were my favorites: In strength, we have Donkey Kong," Peach rolled her eyes as Wario and Brandon glared at Donkey Kong. The director continued, "In speed, there was a tie between Diddy Kong and Yoshi, but I think Yoshi overall wins," Diddy Kong began jumping up and down, making angry screeches while Yoshi laughed. "And another tie in defense between Cassandra and Waluigi," said the director. Peach glanced at Waluigi, who was laughing obnoxiously like a pedophile. "Gross," she managed to say, making Daisy laugh.
The director began to explain everything about how the game is played. Each would be given a power based on their personalities to make a Super Strike. He also explained how their uniforms protected them when they would be shoved into the electric wall, as well as when they are attacked by an item. He looked at Daisy and Rebecca. "Tomorrow, everyone will meet here for uniforms size and to get your sidekicks. I also want Daisy and Rebecca to perform a game for those of you who don't know what's going on," Daisy smirked and cracked her knuckles, "Now I'm going hand out a list of sidekicks," continued the director, his voice raising, "and I want you to check off the three you want. Yes, you can pick the same sidekick more than once. Make sure you pay attention to their abilities though."
Rebecca began to pass out the list of sidekicks and everyone took about fifteen minutes to pick.
"Oh, it's so hard to pick..." muttered Peach.
"Ha! I'm gettin' my old team back together," said Diasy. Peach looked at her paper to see she circled two koopa troopas and a montey mole. "Need one for power and two that are all-around," said Daisy.
Peach sighed and looked at Mario and Luigi. "What about you two?" she asked.
Mario smirked. "Shy guys. They're freaking awesome," he said.
Yoshi's ears percked up from behind. "I hate shy guys..." he muttered, almost in a growl.
Mario turned around. "Why is that?" he asked.
Yoshi shrugged and turned back around. "I just do."
Luigi looked over at Mario's paper. "That's your whole team?" he asked.
"Yeah, why not?" said Mario.
"You should pick a better variety, not just all shy guys."
Mario scoffed. "I bet I can beat your team twenty-four, seven bro," he said, poking Luigi's face with his pencil.
Luigi scowled and circled a dry bones, a birdo, and a koopa troopa. "There! You'll be begging for mercy with my team!" he shouted.
Rebecca snickered in front of them. "Yeah right," she snobbed and walked over to Brandon, Wario, and Waluigi.
Peach finally made up her mind and circled a toad, a birdo, and a Shy Guy. "I think I can do good with this team, right?" she asked, looking up to her friends. They weren't paying attention, so she huffed and turned around, "Who did you pick, Yoshi?"
Yoshi looked up with large dark blue eyes. "A boo, hammer bro, and toad. I think it's a perfect combination," he said.
She gulped and dared to ask him something. "So, um... Why don't you liked to be called Squirt?" she asked softly.
His smile faded and his eyes became piercing to look at. "For various reasons that /you/ don't need to know," he snapped and turned back around with his head down, pulling his hoodie over his head. Diddy Kong sighed and went back to his work.
Mario snickered and shook his head. "You shouldn't have asked..." he muttered with a grin. Peach growled and punched his arm, recieving a bear hug from him.
Eveyone handed in their papers and began leaving. "Remember! Come back tomorrow for your teamates or you're not in Stikers!" called the director.
Brandon smirked and walked over to Peach. "My, my, you've gotten sexier in the past three weeks," he said seductivly in her ear.
Peach shrieked, pushed him away, and ran behind Mario. Mario clenched his fists and stepped forward, pushing Brandon back. "Stay the hell away from us!" he hissed.
Brandon just laughed and walked back towards Rebecca, Wario, and Waluigi. He purposly pushed Yoshi along the way, muttering "Pet."
Donkey Kong grabbed Brandon's arm and pushed him down, making him roll back a few feet.
Diddy Kong laughed and hopped onto Donkey Kong's back. "Yeah, that'll teach you! Punk!" said Diddy Kong. Yoshi laughed and walked out with them.
"Snuggle with me!" said Mario, not letting go of Peach as they watched a movie.
"Mario, let me go!" she demanded.
"You're suffocating me!"
"I wanna snuggle~!"
Luigi groaned and rolled his eyes next to them. "Hey, I'm trying to watch a movie here!" he said.
Mario turned to him. "And I'm trying to snuggle. It's not my fault Daisy isn't here."
Luigi stood up and headed for the stairs. "I'm going to sleep. Don't make too much noise and remember to use protection~," he said.
Peach's eyed widened and she blushed. "L-L-Luigi-!"
"Haha, don't worry, we will," laughed Mario, pulling Peach closer.
Peach's heart pounded. "Wait, what!" she shouted at Mario.
Mario laughed and dug his head into the crook of her neck. "I'm kidding, calm down," he said soothingly.
Peach's heart rate slowed down. She sighed in relief and leaned back into Mario's arm. We still haven't had our first kiss yet... thought Peach. I wonder why though? Doesn't he love me?
They both turned their heads towards eachothervand stared into eachothers eyes. Peach began to lean forward and puckered her lips until Mario turned his head to the side. She ended up kissing his cheek. He smiled and snuggled with her again.
Peach smiled, but was more irritated than happy. She was going to figure out why he won't kiss her sooner or later, and it irked her to why he wouldn't want to.
"Wish me luck, Sugar," said Daisy, giving Luigi a hug and a peck on the lips. She wore the exact same uniform as Rebecca, except in orange. The top part ended above her stomach, showing het curved thighs and flat stomach.
"Daisy, get ready!" called the montey mole on her team.
"Coming Clay!" Daisy called back to him. The two koopas on her team were twins, Lily and Billy.
Peach, Mario, and Luigi watched as she ran onto the feild, both Rebecca and her team of a hammer bro, birdo, and dry Bones glaring at eachother. Her team was similar to Luigi's.
Everyone else who was in the tournament sat down in the crowd stands and watched.
The director was speaking through the speakers in the stadium. "Alright girls! The electric fence is turned on. I want a good and fair game, just like last year. Ready?" he said.
Daisy and Rebecca's eyes were glued to the ball.
The sound of the whistle rang throughout the stadium and both captains charged for the ball.
Daisy slid on her leg to get it, but Rebecca smashed her body right into her, throwing Daisy away from the ball. The smash was intentional since Daisy didn't have the ball, so Daisy was given an item. The item symbol popped up on the screen.
Rebecca immediaty took the ball and passed it to her dry bones. Lily leaped forward to tackle the dry bones, but he quickly detatched all of his body parts and vanished. He appeared right by the goalie. The dry bones charged up the ball and it was hurled at the goalie, and electric feild surrounding it. The goalie was electrocuted and the ball bounced the opposite way. While the goalie was being electrocuted, Rebecca ran to the ball and shot it into the goal before Billy could push her in time.
The score was 1 to 0, Rebecca winning in only the first ten seconds of the game.
The whistle blew and everyone ran back to their positions. Rebecca laughed and flipped her hair. "Hmph. Told you not to enter," she said as she ran past Daisy.
Daisy looked up at Luigi in the stands. He gave a smile and a thumbs up. She smiled back and ran to her position.
The whistle blew again and this time, Daisy used her item, which were three green shells. One of the shells hit Rebecca, causing her to fall.
Daisy passed the ball to Clay who began to run. Rebecca's Hammer Bro went to hit Clay, but he dug a hole underground for safety. He popped back up, knocking the Hammer Bro out of the way, and passed the ball to Lily.
Lily began to charge up the ball and was going to make a normal shoot until Rebecca's Birdo hurled herself at Lily. Lily passed the ball to Billy just in time. Birdo's hit threw Lily all the way to the electric fence, badly electrocuting Lily.
Diddy Kong and Yoshi winced at her cries in the stands while Wario and Brandon laughed.
Billy charged up the ball and made and air pass to Clay, but it was intercepted by Rebecca. Daisy pushed Rebecca and made another air pass to Clay. Clay jumped into he air, head-butting the ball straight to the goal. It curved around the goalie and made it safely into the net. A scratch mark was left in the center of the flower inprinted on his helmet.
"Go Daisy!" cheered Peach from the stands, standing up with Mario, Luigi, and even Yoshi.
"Ey, sit down! I can't see a damn thing!" said Waluigi.
Brandon smirked. "Hey, I don't mind getting a nice view of Cassandra's ass," he said, taking a sip of his soda.
"E-Excuse me!" stuttered Peach with a small blush.
"Heh, yeah, a nice view!" repeated Wario.
Mario made a fist and turned around. "Listen you bastards-!"
Brandon's straw was flicked at Mario, hitting his head. Mario growled, fury in his eyes while Peach tried to pull him down.
Yoshi shook his head. He turned to Brandon, opened his mouth and smacked him in the face with his long tongue. Brandon fell back, his soda landing on his head. Yoshi stood up and sat in front of Mario, Luigi, and Peach. They stared at him, mouths agaped.
"Yes, my people do have very long tongues in order to survive on the island. Just so you know, that's how I'll be taking you down during the games," said Yoshi, turning back around and minding his own business, pulling his hoodie over his head again.
"That was freaking awesome..." muttered Mario with a grin.
There were thirty seconds left in the game, Daisy winning 5-4. Everyone on the feild were full of dirt, bruises, scratches, and some with leftover ice stuck onto them from when they were hit with an ice shell.
The whistle blew and both teams kept fighting for the ball, back and forth.
Rebecca ran away with it all the way near the goalie. Before Billy and Lily could tackle her, she threw a bomb at them, giving her enough time to charge the ball for a super strike. When Clay and Daisy came to get her, Rebecca's teamates pushed them out of the way.
The ball was completely charged. She flew up into the air with it. Water appeared out of nowhere around her and the sky turned purple. The water surrounded her foot and she kicked it to the goalie. The ball split into six different balls and were charging at an amazing speed.
"Don't let them get through, Spike!" shouted Daisy to her goalie. Spike blocked the balls one at a time. One, two, three... The fourth one went in.
Daisy wouldn't mind settling it with a sudden death match, but her stomach dropped when the last ball made it through. Spike stomped on the ground fustratingly as the siren went off and Rebecca was carried off by her team. "Ha! I told you not to come here, you pathetic loser!" she shouted.
Mario stood up and boo'd with Yoshi while Wario, Waluigi, and Brandon cheered.
Daisy sighed heavily and walked into the lockeroom with her team.
When they were all dressed, they met up with everyone else and the director on the feild. The feild was filled with dirt, hiles, and a few burns from electric shocks.
The doors opened and many sidekicks began to run out onto the feild in uniform. "Captains, these are your sidekicks. They already know who they are assigned to," said the director, turning to the sidekicks, "so sidekicks, find your captain."
A hammer bro, boo, and toad ran to Yoshi. They were wearing greend uniforms, except boo, who was wearing orange instead.
"Sup! I'm Gilbert Hammer Bro! Call me Gil," said the hammer bro, holding his hand out to Yoshi.
"I'm Luke," said the toad.
"Fang," said the boo, pointing to himself.
Tree shy guys ran up to Mario with a smile. "Shy Guys, assemble!" he commanded, pointing to the sky dramatically.
Yoshi turned around and was engaged in a glare war between him and a shy guy on Mario's team. "Well it looks like I'm not the only one from Eggy Island..." sneered the shy guy.
"It was re-named years ago, for your information," growled Yoshi.
"Oh, that's right, your father had to be the hero and save the island. And he even had to re-name it in his honor. Yes, very heroic," said the shy guy sarcastically.
"You shut your mouth!"
"Um..." interrupted Mario.
"Alright, alright, let's not start personal problems with one another. S.G., stop bothering the other team. Yoshi, go back to your own business," said the director.
S.G. shrugged, "It's not my fault that the offspring of a killer is here. I didn't expect it."
"LIAR!" shouted Yoshi.
"If you two do not stop, you will not be able to play in the tournament!" scolded the director.
They both nodded and turned back around. Daisy broke the silence. "So, uh, Cassandra! Where's your team?" she asked Peach. Everyone sighed and went back to socializing.
"Right here!" said a voice from behind. She turned to see a birdo, shuy guy, and toad heading torwards her. Her heart sank when she realized who the toad was.
"Hi, I used to work at the castle, but I think I'm better off with soccer. My name's Toad," he said, holding his hand out to Peach.
