One Leaves, Another Comes.

This isn’t really about Poptropica, but it’s about writing about Poptropica 😛 If that makes sense… Anyways, it has been brought to our attention by Brave Tomato, that the Adventures Of Curios Bee will be coming to an end… I cried btw.

So… CB is leaving? Wowzers… I never imagined that… I read CB about a year ago… Right after I started blogging, and it inspired me… To write my own Poptropica Story. There were a few attempts, but most of them failed. Then my brother came up with an idea. He doesn’t come up with many 😛 But this was good. The Nameless Adventures. At least I think it was a good idea.

At first, I thought… The Name… is Nameless 😛 The Nameless Adventures… It’s like “The Adventures” right? Wrong… I wrote the first 7 episodes in one day. NO PICKLE BREAKS?! None :/ But, I was about to post them to this one blog, my first blog, and my sister spilled Fruit Punch on Episode 1…  **Facepalm**

So, I couldn’t post episode 1 since I had already written so much and I didn’t want to rewrite it because I couldn’t remember the first episode all the way 😛 So, I made up an excuse, and a prologue, then posted episode 2-3 😛

So, what’s all of this for? I talked to Super Thunder a couple of weeks ago, and I asked if I could maybe post some of these stories when there aren’t any updates… Which, there always are in Poptropica, so I’ll just post them on the side 😛 Because she said yes 😆 So, I’ll be posting these soon.

Curious Bee Short: 2 Very Important Conversations in a Short Period of Time

*on a nearby beach, the CB group camps out for the night. All but Curious Bee is awake, and they sit on the beach*

Alice: So tell me something, Madeline.

Quiet Snake: Tell me what?

Alice: I’ve been talking around about the Miranda group’s past and stuff… and do you ever get the feeling you’re being watched at all?

Quiet Snake: Not since she-who-must-not-be-named ended up in the portal.

Alice: I have.

Nice Sword: What do you mean, Alice?

Alice: I dunno. Ever since I’ve met you guys and you told your stories, I’ve been really uncomfortable. Do you know that feeling when you feel like you’ve made a new enemy?

Blue Skull: Um… multiple times?

Alice: It’s that feeling. I feel like ever since I’ve known you guys…

Blue Skull: Don’t be so serious, Alice. REd’s gone. Poof. Dispersed. You have nothing to be afraid of.

Alice: Yeah, but are you sure everyone has stopped supporting Kri-er-she-who-must-not-be-named?

Bendy Tornado: Positive. They said so themselves.

Alice: Look, this world is full of liars and decievers. You can’t trust anyone. I learned that you can’t even trust a cop for goodness sake! Long story. Look, all I’m saying is that you shouldn’t believe everything you hear.

*the others nod and get up*

________________________________________________________

*meanwhile, Curious Bee has a dream, until she was interuppted by a flash of darkness*

Curious Bee: Um… what’s going on?

*The darkness fades away to reveal a plain, square, grey-colored room. A boy stands in a corner of the room. He has black shaggy hair, a striped grey and white shirt, and black pants. When he turns around, he stares at CB.*

Marcus: Miranda. We need to talk.

Curious Bee: M-M-Marcus?!?!

Marcus: Why are you… oh. *looks at his former REd clothing* Sorry. I have to wear this outfit whenever I use my powers.

Curious Bee: Your powers?

Marcus: Yeah, I should’ve told you. The powers that Krimson cursed me with is the ability to control air. I can go into people’s minds and dreams as well.

Curious Bee: So… you made that vision Sasha had…

Marcus: Krimson made me do it. Otherwise, she would’ve thrown me and Cameron in the portal. Of course I didn’t know back then…

Curious Bee: Didn’t know what?

Marcus: I talked to Adam the other day.

Curious Bee: Adam?

Marcus: Formerly known as Alamar. He built the portal and he said that the Portal to Nowhere is nothing but a huge scam.

Curious Bee: What do you mean?

Marcus: You know how the motto was “One way in, no way out?” Well, there is a way out. If the portal remains open, then whoever was in it can easily come out.

Curious Bee: You mean if anyone opens the portal…

Marcus: Krimson would return.

*Curious Bee stares blankly at Marcus*

Curious Bee: *nervous* But we don’t have to worry about that… right? Everyone said that they hated Krimson.

Marcus: But did they mean it? I’m not so sure, anymore. *pause* I need to go. Be careful, Miranda.

*Marcus disappears and a wave of darkness clouds CB’s dream once more*

*Curious Bee wakes up in her tent, gasping. She looks around for a second, then joins the others by the ocean.*

The Everred Plot: Part 1- No Turning Back

*dramatic pause*

Brave Tomato: This is it. This is what you’ve been waiting for: the first of three parts of the Curious Bee trilogy, The Everred Plot! Now, this is going to be different this time. Since the most popular vote was the story style, I’ll only do this intro script style. Once the curtains open, this story will be story style. Well, what are we waiting for??

*curtains open*

Curious Bee was startled by the sun beating down on her face. She knew from the feeling that it was time to wake up. Time to possibly save the world. She might die today, who knows, yet she got up anyways.

Looking around, she noticed that people were getting up from the temporary sun. First, Quiet Snake, then Blue Skull, then Sasha, and finally Bendy Tornado.

“Morning guys!” Mirabel Powers (Mira, for short) called out to them, waving an arm, “Glad to see you’re willing to risk your lives today!”

Quiet Snake groaned, “Thank you soo much for reminding us.”

The sun that peeked on the CB group was only temporary, and it vanished into the gathering clouds. The area was darker again.

Blue Skull, always trying to keep a light mind, noticed, “Didn’t you realize that we just slept near REd headquarters?!”

“We pretty much get the idea by now, Eric” Sasha murmured, getting herself up.

Now that everybody’s awake, the CB group walked over to the cave opening. It felt more repulsive than the cave that held the Sword of Hope.

“Krimson Everred’s hideout is down these tunnels,” Mira said, staring at her once hideaway.

The thought of hearing her name made Curious Bee shudder. Although CB had the Sword of Hope in her grasp, she has to still beware the villain’s wrath, according to the Prophecy of Color. And Mira said that Krimson possesses the power of the fire, which makes sense with her burning down Curious Bee’s house. Mira was able to escape Krimson, since she’s actually a spirit as well as the members of REd, and Sasha.

Curious Bee was a curious young girl of now 14 years old. She started off as a young adventurer, who was rebellious about the old rule that she couldn’t leave her home of Early Poptropica. Eventually, she evolved into a leader when she met Bendy, Blue, Quiet, and Nice Sword. She was able to able to work out the conflict between her and Sasha, but CB knew that she couldn’t change Krimson like she did with Sasha.

Sasha, a ghost girl of forever 13, thought it was her fault that the CB group is in this mess. There was a time, actually just months ago, she hated the CB group. She had thought that CB had forgotten her. She had once called her a “selfish mortal”. After CB was able to show proof that Sasha had thought wrong, Sasha apologized and joined the group to make up for it. Although she is dead, she tends to act like she’s still alive.

Bendy Tornado was a boy of 14, who used to actually be part of a graffiti-making gang. However, his poor decision to do left him a consequence of a troubling past: involving the disappearance of three of his fellow members, making a decision that actually saved him from the same fate, and being withheld in the Academy. Now known with a changed heart and as the boyfriend of Curious Bee, Bendy’s got better things going for him.

Quiet Snake was a fashionable, yet cowardly 12-year-old girl from the Academy who tends to complain a lot. She tried to give Curious Bee a little makeover, but CB didn’t really approve of it, since it was the wrong time to have a makeover. It seems like sometimes, she cares about other’s outfits so much that she doesn’t really pay attention to what she is wearing.

Blue Skull was the light-minded one in the CB group. He’s a 13-year-old boy who’s a little silly when he can be, but he can be serious when he needs to be. The only reason he was taken to the academy was because he attempted to take a clown costume from the Costume Store, just to try and entertain his stubborn sister. He was also the first to see Cameron and Marcus Kensie, two members of REd, as who they really are. Although he’s a funnyman, he can be a huge help to the CB group at times.

“Hello?” Mira asked the group, looking at them, “Staring at the cave isn’t going to save the world.”

“Ready?” Curious Bee asked, looking at her fellow members.

The group responded with hesitant nods and a soft “Yes.”

“Wait!” Mira shouted, “Krimson probably put traps in it!” Mira took a rock and threw it into the cave. However, nothing happened.

“Where’s the traps??” Blue Skull asked, confused.

Mira stood there for a second, stunned. Then, she said, “She’s expecting us.”

The CB group stared at the cave, shocked. Curious Bee stared at the cave, “Expecting us?”

“Yes,” Mira responded, “she knows you’re coming. And that I’m with you. And Sasha. But about the rest of you… I have no idea.”

Bendy Tornado looked at Mira, then at Curious Bee, “That explains why she nor the rest of REd bothered us while we were sleeping.”

Silence filled the air for a second. Then, Curious Bee stepped towards the cave, “I’m going in. Are you coming?”

Curious Bee ran into the cave, and the others followed. The Sword of Hope was firmly in her grasp and she continued running.

Curious Bee knew for a fact that there was no turning back. The tunnel seemed endless. Darkness blanketed the cave even more as they ran deeper. The rocky terrain seemed like it was going to close in on the group at any second. Nothing was going to stop them. Nothing.

Quiet Snake stumbled a little bit on the rocky grounds, “Are we there yet?”

“Just a little while longer!” Mira shouted, unaffected by the familiar setting, “Krimson chose this cave so that normal travelers who don’t know where they’re going would give up. Also, usually, she enables traps that would make the idea of going back easier. But… they’re disabled for some reason.”

The CB group continued running. Curious Bee didn’t know how to feel. It was a mixture of fear, determination, bravery, perseverance, and, most importantly, hope. The Sword seemed to be giving that message.

Then there was a light. It was a reddish light, and Mira stopped short.

The others, not knowing what to do, stopped too.

“See that light?” Mira showed, pointing in the direction, “Ladies and gentlemen, that is REd headquarters.”

It didn’t take that long to figure out. The Sword was gripped tighter in Curious Bee’s hand. Then, she blinked for a second and put the sword in its case. CB’s pretty unsure right now on what to do.

“By the way, Miranda, do you even know how to use a sword?” Sasha asked.

“I guess. I once did a sword-wielding simulation, and then there’s the fact that I saw it on TV too, so I guess that counts,” Curious Bee responded, nervously.

The group stared at her blankly. Blue Skull replied, “You better be paying close attention to those TV shows. And you better had done alright during that simulation.”

“Yeah…” Curious Bee sighed, “that would’ve been better to know before we entered the cave.”

“Well it’s too late now!” Quiet Snake groaned, looking at the ground, “There’s no turning back.”

Out of nowhere, Curious Bee dashed towards the red light.

“Hey!” Mira shouted, “Wait for us!”

Curious Bee continued running. She kept thinking. She has no experience. She never actually fought a villain before. But she needs to do this, for Nice Sword, who was taken captive by REd. She felt like she lost control of her feet, which continued running towards the red light.

No turning back now.

The rest of the group ran behind her, a couple of feet away. The red light continued increasing in size.

Before she knew it, CB was right in front of the source of the light. Quickly, she hid behind a large floor stalagmite. The rest of the CB group came over, and CB called them over to hide.

The group stayed quiet as they hid.

In the room at the moment, there was Cameron, Marcus, Indigo, and Alamar. They watched the security camera footage.

“How in Poptropica do they know the way?” Marcus asked, looking at the footage.

“I have no idea, brother,” Cameron responded, “maybe it has something to do with the red-head ponytail girl.”

“It has everything to do with the ‘red-head ponytail girl’,” Alamar sighed, looking at the Kensies, “she’s Selena Castheart.”

“That girl who left?” Cameron asked, “She’s here?”

“Yeah,” Indigo responded, “she’s the sole traitor of REd. She’s the mission of Alamar and I. We haven’t seen her until now.”

Marcus was tired of hearing the Selena Castheart story a million times. It warns the members of REd to never be hesitant. Although she takes on the new name of Mirabel Powers, Mira for short, they still call her Selena.

Violet then entered the room, and looked at the footage. “They’re here,” she said.

Curious Bee flinched. She recognized Violet, Cameron, and Marcus, but not the other two voices. She assumed the new girl voice to be Indigo and the new boy voice to be Alamar. And when Violet mentioned that they were here, she cringed a little.

Then she heard a very familiar voice.

“Curious Bee!!!”

Curious Bee tried not to come out of hiding.

“It’s Nice Sword!” Quiet Snake whispered lowly.

All of a sudden, vines appeared from cracks on the ground and held down the CB group. All except for Mira, Sasha, and Curious Bee: the ones that mattered to REd.

Cameron came around from the corner of the stalagmite and leeredn at the group, “Just what makes you think you can hide from REd that easily?”

“Good going, sis,” Marcus said to Cameron, for once, not sarcastically.

“Again with the vines?? That’s getting a little cliché by now,” Blue Skull shouted.

Curious Bee stood her ground and took out the Sword. As soon as Cameron saw the weapon, she used a vine to pull CB’s hand, thrusting her to the ground. The Sword skidded towards the stalagmite.

“Ah, so you’ve got a sword, now?” Cameron taunted.

“Look who’s acting brave,” Marcus remarked.

Out of nowhere, someone shouted “Enough with this nonsense!”

Curious Bee cringed in her mind. That voice. It could only be her. Dark. Twisted. Troubled.

Sasha, remembering she had the power of the sharp, cut off the vines on everyone.

It was no one other than Krimson who appeared in front of the group. Curious Bee grabbed the Sword.

“The Sword of Hope may be in your grasp…” Krimson sinisterly remarked, “but the ‘hero’ must beware my wrath…”

With that, she reached out a hand at Sasha. Sasha was stopped, unable to move. “Miranda!” she shouted out.

“Sasha!” Curious Bee responded, sword tightly in grasp. The Sword is able to harm ghosts, it also give the ability to be able to attack ghosts as if they were solid. With that, Curious Bee gripped her sword and used her arm to push Krimson to prevent her from controlling Sasha.

“Ooooo, a fighter girl now, aren’t you?” Krimson said, getting up.

“Thanks to you,” Curious Bee remarked, twirling her sword.

Krimson was stunned by Curious Bee’s sudden bravery. Yet, she still needed to satisfy her insanity. She used telekinesis to keep Sasha still and resumed putting out her palm.

“Come with me,” Krimson muttered, not letting in, “and you’ll be free.”

“No!” Curious Bee shouted. She  got up and attempted to do the same move, but she got pulled by a vine, towards the ground again. This time, the sword was still in CB’s grip and she cut off the vine.

But it was too late.

“MIRANDA!” Sasha shouted, as she noticed herself being transformed.

Bendy, Blue, Quiet, and Mira tried to pull Sasha out, but it was no use.

“SASHA!” Curious Bee responded, going to her. Then, she looked at Krimson, who  had a sinister smirk on her face. CB gritted her teeth. She felt the desire to actually use her sword. It felt like it was gleaming in her hands.

“Welcome to REd, Sasha,” Krimson muttered softly, sinisterly.

“No!” Curious Bee shouted. Sasha couldn’t say anything. Her eyes were closed, and she looked like a REd member. She was being controlled by Krimson. She pulled an arm and Sasha was floating towards her, unaware.

Curious Bee blanked out. She thought she had failed. She didn’t react quick enough.

“It’s not too late!” Mira shouted at CB, keeping determined eyes.

“Go, Curious Miranda Bee!” Blue Skull responded.

“You need to stop her!” Quiet Snake shouted bravely.

“Do it. I know you can,” Bendy Tornado said, looking into CB’s eyes.

Curious Bee glimpsed at Nice Sword, in the cage. She gave a determined look and nodded, “Kick that girl’s butt.”

She glared at Krimson. Sasha was forced to follow her. Sasha had lost control of her own spirit.

Gripping her sword with all might, she whispered, “You’re looking at a completely different girl now, Krimson Everred.”

The Adventures of Curious Bee: Episode 26- Cryptic in Thought

Brave Tomato: *paces on stage* Seven must be brought together if Poptropica’s fate is to change forever… *looks up and realizes that she paced on the stage* Oh, um-hi.

Audience Member: What are you doing reciting the prophecy?

Brave Tomato: I dunno. Well, last time we saw Curious Bee…

*curtains open*

Brave Tomato: Wai-Wha? I didn’t finish…

Audience: Move out of the way!

Brave Tomato: Alright, I’m getting off…

……

*The property of what was the CB house is now clear of ashes. CB sits down and looks around. She is haunted by the fact that her room used to be where she was sitting. She is haunted by the fact that some people want to kill her. She is haunted by the fact that all this happened because of such a simple move.*

Bendy Tornado: Miranda?

Curious Bee: Oh, Bendy! You scared me. I was just thinking.

Bendy Tornado: Thinking about what?

Curious Bee: What to do in the next week or so. *looks* I want to check out Cryptids Island. But I’m not sure if I should leave when the house is still being worked on.

Bendy Tornado: You know, Miranda, I don’t think it’s a good idea to stay here much longer.

Curious Bee: Why not?

Bendy Tornado: With REd running around like a cattle stampede, I don’t feel that it’s safe to stay at one place.

Curious Bee: Yeah… good point. All the clean-up has been finished today.

Bendy Tornado: I think we should leave in the morning.

*CB nods. She gets up and heads towards the others*

Curious Bee: Guys? I think it would be a good idea if we leave in the morning. All the cleanup is done, now we should let the construction workers do the rest.

Safe Bee: Well, CB, I was going to talk to you about that. It’s not safe to stay in the same spot at once. You may go in the morning.

Blue Skull: Come on, we’re going back??

Curious Bee: *nods*

Sasha: Although it’s nice to be home, I think it’s a good idea to keep moving on. After all, I don’t want to represent orange.

Quiet Snake: In the meantime, let’s get some rest.

*the group heads in the apartment*

*Meanwhile, Cameron and Marcus were spying in an alley*

Cameron: They know about the prophecy?!

Marcus: Seems like.

Cameron: It cannot be! How could they know?? *thinks* They’re heading back to Cryptids Island in the morning. I think I have a plan…

Marcus: Aw, come on, Cameron! Remember last time we went your plan??

Cameron: It was not my fault!

Marcus: Still arguing about that? Remember what Everred said, we both are responsible somehow.

Cameron: But I still have a plan.

Marcus: Alright, fine! Just don’t cry to me when your plan doesn’t work.

Cameron: Trust me, it’ll work.

*Time passes. It’s morning now, and the CB group and Safe Bee head out. Quiet Snake is holding onto the map.*

Curious Bee: Well, Mom, looks like its goodbye for now.

Safe Bee: Just be careful. And call me if you need anything.

Sasha: We get it, Jennifer.

Safe Bee: I know, Sasha, but it’s just a reminder.

Curious Bee: Bye!

*The group heads for main street, and get on the blimp. When the blimp heads over water, Cameron and Marcus get out from the ocean and hold on to the rope and then become invisible.*

Curious Bee: *opens map* Woah, this is new. What happened, did the islands rearrange or something??

Bendy Tornado: *shrugs* Happens every once in a blue moon.

Curious Bee: Umm…okay…? Looks like we have to travel left now.

*travels*

Cameron: What the heck?? Why are we going left?

Marcus: Will you be quiet?? Do you want to be heard??

Cameron: Um… no.

Marcus: Probably another island switch. Some islands have the ability to move around. Happens every once in a blue moon.

Cameron: Blue moon? Don’t make me think of Indigo Rolstol. That girl makes me a little sick.

Marcus: Alright then.

*back in the basket of the blimp*

Quiet Snake: There it is! *points*

Blue Skull: Finally! That trip took long enough.

Cameron: *heard* NOW!

Sasha: *turns* Huh??

*Vines appear out of the water and grab on to the blimp*

Curious Bee: The blimp can’t move!

Quiet Snake: What’s happening??

Cameron: You may not have seen us for a while…

Marcus: …but we’re always here.

Sasha: Great, you guys.

Blue Skull: Why do we have to deal with the four of you?

Marcus: *looks* Four of you? *counts* You should only know of three. *looks at Cameron* You were the one that said Indigo’s name out loud!

Curious Bee: Wait… who’s Indigo?

Cameron: Grand, now see what you have done!? It wasn’t Indigo they were talking about.

Quiet Snake: What about that purple one? Violet?

Cameron: Violet Hemmings?! How do you know of her??

Bendy Tornado: *holds out drawing he made in episode 24*

Marcus: Bravo.

*Out of frustration, Cameron pulls the vines wrapped around the blimp closer to the ocean, farther from land*

Cameron: Enough with the games of who knows what. You know what we’re here for.

Blue Skull: Yeah, get Curious Bee, blah blah blah…

Marcus: That. Yeah.

*Sasha looks over the side of the blimp. She concentrates on the vines, and all of a sudden, the vines are sliced in half, breaking CB’s blimp away from the grasp.*

Cameron: No!

Sasha: Yes.

*CB quickly docks the blimp on land*

Bendy Tornado: Quick, to the general store!

*The CB group heads inside the general store*

General Store Owner: How may I help you?

Curious Bee: Uh.. just browsing.

General Store Owner: Alright then. Tourists usually buy stuff anyways.

Quiet Snake: Oh, look at this cute little lighthouse! *looks at price tag* 60 dollars?!

Blue Skull: This is no time for shopping. That duo could pass right on by if we weren’t noticeable.

Bendy Tornado: Right.

*the CB group waits. Seconds later, the door opens and they flinch. However, a girl with orange hair in a ponytail enters. She wears an olive-colored jacket with a white top and gray skirt. The CB group sighs in relief.*

?: Oh. I didn’t realize that someone else was in here.

Sasha: No, it’s fine.

Mira: I’m Mirabel Powers, by the way. *looks at Sasha* You must be the famous Sasha Rider.

Curious Bee: Wait…

Sasha: How did you know my name??

Mira: I spy on REd. I know.

Curious Bee: You DO?

Mira: And you must be the ever-talked about Curious Miranda Bee.

Curious Bee: The way you’re putting it is creepy. 

Mira: Is it? Sorry, I tend to put things wrongly. 

Bendy Tornado: How do you know of REd’s existance?

Mira: *frowns* Do you really want to know? 

Quiet Snake: Yeah.

Mira: I know, because I was part of them.

Sasha: What do you mean?

Mira: I was a member of REd.

*the CB gang gives a blank stare*

Blue Skull: I’m lost.

Mira: Well, it’s a long story.

*flashback*

*1st person told from Mira’s point of view*

You see, I kinda died. I was riding in my mom’s car, minding my own buisness, when all of a sudden, BAM! A car rushed onto my side of the car like at 90 miles an hour.

When I woke up, I was in the middle of the road. I was a ghost. And I wouldn’t believe it. What made it more weird is the fact that the wreckage that was supposed to be there wasnt there. Cars were passing through me. Nobody would see me. I didn’t let them see me. I went off the side of the forest and looked. I knew I was dead, but I didn’t want to die.

All of a sudden, this goth girl came out of nowhere, scar on her cheek, red hair, pale skin. I looked at her, and she looked at me. Yup, that’s Krimson I’m talking about. She looked at me in the eye and said,

“Come with me, Selena Castheart. You’ll be free.”

I, being the dumb person I am, followed her. I didn’t know. I thought this girl was going to guide me into the afterlife or something. But, she touched me, and all of a sudden, I became this orange glow, My orange hair became a tint darker, I had the eye lag Krimson had, and my clothes changed as well. It became all dark and evil-looking.

“Welcome to REd, Selena,” she whispered.

 

She took me to a secret hideaway, and there were other people there. It was before the Kensie siblings and Alamar arrived…

*pause*

Curious Bee: Who’s Alamar?

Mira: Questions after the story, please?

Curious Bee: Right. Sorry.

Mira: As I was saying…

*back to 1st person with Mira*

and Violet and Indigo were the only other ones there. They stared me down.

“Looks like a new face, Krimson,” Violet said, staring at me in the eye.

“She better not make any waves,” Indigo revolted. No one clearly gave a care for me.

Krimson held out a scroll in front of me, whispering sinisterly, “This is our goal, and then we’ll be free.”

I just stared at Krimson. Then on the scroll, a jet back line appeared, crossing the orange circle. I was orange.

I never wanted to be part of any evil organization. Not at all. But I did stick around. To find their secrets. I witnessed the arrival of Alamar Midas, the male to represent gold. Krimson did the same thing with him the way she did with me. With Krimson now focused on Alamar, it provided the perfect oppurtunity to run. So I did.

While Violet, Indigo, and Krimson were fixated on Alamar, I got away. I ran. I turned off the security system.

However, it wasn’t long before Krimson noticed I was gone. When Krimson showed Alamar the scroll, Orange was no longer crossed out. It was just there, blank. She kinda got, well, mad. She teleported right in front of me and looked at me. Her eyes stared at my lost soul like I was the bad guy.

“Just where do you think you are going?” Krimson muttered, a dark voice overshadowing her normal voice.

I couldn’t stand to just to see her. So I said something that I never regretted.

“You lied to me. I never was really part of REd. I was just there. I never even wanted to be here! I wish I never followed you. You’re just pure evil. I know it. Evil in its purest form. You’re the most insane person I’ve ever met. I was happy, until I met you.”

“Revolting against REd at a time like this?” Krimson muttered, darker than before, “I don’t think so.”

I felt a pounding at my chest and it thrusted me backwards. I could feel pain other spirits caused. That pain made me break. I yelled out. All of this anger bursted out. I let out my power, the power of fire, but I didn’t know Krimson could do the same. She set me on fire.

“It’s unwise to fight me, Selena.” Krimson muttered sinisterly.

Krimson was right. I couldn’t fight her, not like this. While I was on fire, I teleported. Krimson didn’t see me disappear until the fire faded.

When I arrived at my destination, I doused the fire and changed everything back. I was me again. But… I needed to change me. I gave myself freckles. I changed my outfit to a one I never had. I made myself look like I’m a regular person.

It was going to be hard. I knew it. I changed my name from Selena Castheart to Mirabel Powers. And I kinda made my own living and stuff.

However, due to the fact that I know the hideaway’s location, I spy on REd. I’m sneaky like Violet is. I don’t want Poptropica’s fate to go into their hands.

Blue Skull: Sheesh. That is a long story.

Mira: It is, isn’t it? Also, they’re looking for me, too. No success. Thank you, Mira Powers.

Curious Bee: Huh. Guess we can somewhat relate. 

Mira: I must be going. See you guys!

*Mira exits the general store. As she leaves, the store owner tries to stop her.*

General Store Owner: Wait! Aren’t you going to buy something??

Bendy Tornado: That was… weird.

Curious Bee: I’m debating on whether to trust her. The days before we left, Mom had said “Be careful who you trust.”  *looks* Honestly, now that I know what Krimson can do, I’m kinda… scared.

Quiet Snake: You’re scared? You’re the one that keeps bugging me to be brave.

Curious Bee: Yeah, I was. But something… is in me that is building my fear.

Bendy Tornado: That’s called fear, Miranda. We all had fear before. Even… even me.

Curious Bee: Yeah. *looks* If Mira got out alright, then so should we. Come on.

*the CB group heads outside*

Quiet Snake: This adventure is becoming anything but ordinary.

Curious Bee: Hello? Poptropica is NOT ordinary.

*curtains close*

Brave Tomato: Whew. This went on longer than I thought. Well, tune in next time! BT out!

Curious Bee Xtra: Sasha’s Story: Part 2 of 2

“I need to find someone.” Sasha said firmly, “and teach her a lesson. One day. She can’t forget me! She’s my only living friend. She must pay, that selfish mortal.”

…………………………………………………………………………………………..

“What?” Cameron asked.

“Who?” Marcus asked.

“We can help, you know,” Cameron said.

“No, I don’t need your help for my problems,” Sasha scoffed, looking at the ocean.

“Whatever is your problem, is our problem too,” Marcus said, considerably.

“No I don’t need your help!” Sasha yelled once again.

Marcus looked at Sasha with a look of disgust. Then, Cameron whispered to Marcus, “She’s undergoing a lot of stress right now. She just died and she found out that her friend could have betrayed her.”

Getting up, Marcus looked at Sasha. Her red hair was flowing in the brisk winds, staring at the ocean. The ocean could be a soothing place, but for Sasha, it was a miserable, horrible nightmare of a place. She thought of everything, the horrible sound of wood burning and breaking, under the mercy of guns and cannons. Then there was the water. It doused the flames, but it also entrapped the chamber like a blanket. Being underwater was even worse than being surrounded by flames. The water was ice cold, and there was no way you could live another second if there isn’t another airpocket in the area. And the saddest part is, Poptropica is made up of islands, so there are more oceans that haunt the memories.

Sasha turned around and looked at Cameron and Marcus. She said, “Look, as much as I thank you for returning me to land, I have to do something. I need to go…” she paused, “wait, what year is it?”

“It’s September 2011.” Marcus said.

What??” Sasha asked, stunned, “but it was July 2010 when I died!”

“You’ve been asleep from your death for over a year. A ghost could wake at any time. I died in June 2008 and woke up January 2009.” Cameron said.

All this time had passed, yet Sasha was unaware. She looked at Cameron and Marcus remorsefully and disappeared, heading towards Early Poptropica. Marcus watched as she disappeared. Then, Cameron came up from behind him, blond hair cascading into a jet black, and said,

“Don’t worry, my brother. We’ll get her to join us soon. As soon as she could get rid of the one thing plaguing her life: Miranda Bee.”

…………………………………………………….

I’m at war with the world cause I

Ain’t never gonna sell my soul

I’ve already made up my mind

No matter what I can’t be bought or sold

~ “Awake and Alive” by Skillet

Sasha looked around. The familiar sight of Early Poptropica haunted her. Looking around, she noticed the familiar street of the suburbian district.

Baystreet Way.

She looked around, as if she had landed there for the first time. The streets were empty. Sasha knew what she had to do. She walked down the street and looked at the House. Miranda’s house. She knew it. She peeked through the window, where no one was there. Not even Jennifer, Miranda’s mom. She went through the walls and there was still no one there. There was a note on the counter:

Gone to the PPA to rescue our daughter.
~Jennifer

Sasha eyed the note and said, “The PPA. The Poptropica Problems Academy.”

Sasha flew and exited Early Poptropica. She located the remote island and flew down to there.
The place is sure dark. There was grey everywhere, even the grass was a dull grey. Sasha became invisible and looked around. Then she saw a woman and a man. The man seemed to be the principal of the academy and the woman was Jennifer. She said,

“I’ve come to remove Curious Miranda Bee from this school.”

“I cannot allow it, and she even escaped along with her roommates months ago.” the principal stated firmly.

“Good for her! I never wanted her to go here!” Jennifer shouted, walking away.

Sasha watched in dismay and disbelief. Miranda had ran away? Great she thought, This’ll make the job harder. Then she had an idea, “Maybe,” she said, “I can wait in Early Poptropica until she arrives.”

Sasha exited the remote island and flew back to Early Poptropica. She landed on the ground, near Goodstein Street, and disappeared.

…………………

A month had passed, yet Sasha still waited. Still invisible. Her strength was fading, she knew she can’t stay invisible forever.

Then Halloween came.

Sasha recognized the cheerful sounds of Halloween, whether it could be cheers or fears of young ones. Then she saw her.

Of course, she had her glasses on. Her hair was in a bun, and there were detachable wings attached to her. There were four other kids walking and talking with her. Two boys and two girls. One of the boys had curly blond hair, fair skin, and seems to be dressed like a rock star. The other one had brown-black sleek hair that was hidden by an apparent cowboy hat. One of the girls had light brown short hair that had a fake halo over her head, an obvious angel costume. The other wore grey streaks in her black hair and wore a purple gown.

Eventually, she was able to identify them as the roommates who escaped with Miranda. Then she watched Miranda decided to sit down for a little bit and the others said that they would come back for her.

As soon as the roommates walked a safe distance away, Sasha stole a bat from a boy who set it on a bench. Looking over where Miranda was sleeping, she carried the bat…

… knocked Miranda out and took her to the nearby graveyard.

…….…
