Quest for Coffee

A Group Project By The Men In Cloaks

EXPLINATION THING: This story is the joint efforts of the Men In Cloaks group. I will give the authors name before each chapter. The main thing to remember is that for the most part, this ain't me. The various OC's are just for the lulz, don't flame me. I own Zulla and nothing more. John Flanagan owns Rangers apprentice, RedRoseMana owns this chapter, and the various Men In Cloaks own their various OC's. Enjoy fair internet people!

It was a lazy day in Araluen and...what's that? Ok, apparently I am not allowed to start off with a boring introduction, so I'm going to have to come up with a new one. Ahem, here goes:

It would have been a lazy day in Araluen, had the ultimate crime not been committed: the stealing of the COFFEE! (dun dun dunnnnn!) The Rangers had no idea yet, of course, but they would soon find out...

"NOOOOOO!" The cry came from a purple-haired girlwho ran up the hill to the group lazing in the sunshine in a fit of panic, eyes wide.

"What's happened?" Will asked, instantly, sitting up. If Mana was not sarcastic, something was definitely up...

"THE COFFEE'S BEEN STOLEN!" Mana screeched and instantly nearly everyone was sitting up.

"The coffee's...been stolen?" Gilan said, a twitch in his eye. At a nod from Mana, he leapt up and started running around like a maniac, screaming "THE COFFEE'S STOLEN! THE COFFEE'S STOLEN! NOOOOO! IT CAN'T BE!"

"What's the big deal?" Horace shrugged and was glared at by nearly everyone. Halt was hyperventilating, Will looked close to a nervous breakdown and Zulla was tearing at her hair.

"Calm down!" Violet said quietly, flipping her black hair out of her brown eyes. "We have to think this through rationally -"

"RATIONALLY?" Gilan screeched. "OUR COFFEE'S STOLEN AND ALL YOU CAN THINK ABOUT IS BEING RATIONAL?" At this, an older version of Gilan stepped forwards, grabbed Gilan's shoulders and began to violently shake him.

"Snap out of it, Gilan!" he said. He let go and Gilan staggered around before shaking his head.

"Thanks, Gid," he grinned before running around again, shouting the same thing as before.

"If this is how they react when it's stolen, I hate to think what they'd do if it was destroyed," Auryon commented.

"THE COFFEE'S BEEN DESTROYED?" Halt, Will, Gilan, Mana and Zulla screamed.

"No, I never said that!" Auryon said fearfully, her hands in a mock-surrender position.

"So, what do we do?" Gideon said to the others.

"There's only one thing for it," Siobhan said in a mysterious voice. "We go on...a quest of epic proportions." (dun dun dunnnnnn!)
