It was midnight in Dark Land and the moon was full. There was a light flickering in the kitchen. Ludwig was getting a glass of water. “I don’t know why I suddenly got so thirsty,” he thought to himself.
He opened the cabinet and pulled out a glass. Then he stepped up to the fridge. Suddenly, the light shut off “Must be a blackout,” he thought to himself, again.
He opened the fridge and a light shot out. “Weird. Only the kitchen light went out,” he thought. Still, he ignored it.
He poured himself a glass of water and then something bit his tail! “Youch!” Ludwig exclaimed.
He turned around just to see that no one was there. Ludwig rubbed his tail. It was bleeding. “It was probably just Bagels thinking that I was a burgler,” Ludwig thought.
He grabbed a bandage and wrapped it around his tail. Then, he went back to his room.
The next morning, Ludwig woke up feeling excited. He had plans for a toaster that could deliver mail. He ran down the stairs and into his laboratory. “Now to work on my machine,” Ludwig thought.
Then, there was a huge bang from upstairs. “WOULD YOU KEEP IT DOWN?! I’M TRYING TO WORK!” Ludwig yelled. However, nothing came out of his mouth. “What’s going on?” he tried to yell, but there was no sound. “HELP!!!” he mouthed.
“What happened to me?!” Ludwig thought. He thought it might have had something to do with what bit him.
The eldest Koopaling started back to the kitchen. In the dining room, everyone was eating breakfast at the table. “Ludwig, come and eat your breakfast,” Clawdia said
“No thanks,” Ludwig mouthed
“What was that, dear?” Clawdia asked. “I couldn’t hear you”
Ludwig turned to Clawdia. “I said ‘no thanks’.”
“Don’t play games with us, boy! Talk normally!” Bowser yelled.
“I can’t!” Ludwig mouthed
“That’s it! Go to the dungeon!” Bowser exclaimed.
“I think you’re being too hard on him, dear,” Clawdia told Bowser. Then she turned to Ludwig. “What’s wrong, Ludwig?”
Ludwig ran into Bowser Jr’s room and grabbed a piece of paper off of his easel. He ran back down to the table and wrote down, I can’t talk for some reason. Something bit me last night.
“That’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever said!” Bowser yelled. “Now either sit down or get out of here.”
Ludwig walked into the kitchen. “Now to investigate” Ludwig said.
Ludwig started scanning the kitchen for something out of place. He soon saw something orange on the tiled floor. He bent down and picked it up. It was some type of fur. “Hmmmm. This isn’t Bagels’s fur. It’s a completely different color.” Ludwig got back on his feet.
“Ieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!” A scream came from the other room.
Ludwig ran back through the kitchen doors and found the dining room deserted. There was a note on the table saying “I’ve been muted!” The mysterious force had struck again.
Fred the Mole: Ok, so let’s back it up a bit.
It was midnight in Dark Land and-
Fred: Not that far. Go forward a bit.
