The Girl in the Pale Blue Bubble Part 2

Her large brown eyes slowly fluttered open.  She opened her mouth, trying to speak, but no sound came out.  She slowly got up, before collapsing once more unto the floor. Then, the girl tried to speak once more.

“He… Hello?” The girl had a bit of a foreign accent, perhaps Suican or Xerian.  

“Hello.  How may I be of assistance, Summer?” a friendly female voice asked.

“I… I’m not Summer,” the girl stuttered, looking around for the source of the voice.  Perhaps, the voice came from the speakers on the ceiling.

“Who are you?” The female voice now seemed unwelcoming.  The girl frowned.

“I don’t really know,” she said, attempting to get up once more.  She looked around the room, before recognizing something familiar to her.  It was a bookshelf. She walked over to the bookshelf, taking a small leather book out.  It seemed like a diary of sorts. The girl examined the cover, running her fingers over the embroidered letters.  

“Property of Summer Koo.”  She paused for a moment. The last name, Koo, seemed a bit familiar.  Why did it seem so familiar?

“Summer was a thoughtful young woman,” the female voice said, with a sigh.  The girl blinked, surprised at the voice’s response.

“But isn’t summer, a season… Of Earth culture?” she questioned.

“Summer can be many things.  Summer can be a season, a name, a place…” The female voice drifted off, listing what summer could be.  The girl sighed and flipped through the pages, stopping at one page.

“Father says that we must leave this place.  He claims that Neptune is cursed. But I refuse to leave.  Leading Spy Academy is our legacy, surely we cannot abandon it!” Britta read out loud.  Spy Academy seemed so familiar. The girl thought hard for a moment, and her memories flooded back, one by one.

She had been attending Spy Academy, along with her best friend, Serenity Woodbrookes.  They had known each other for many years, since the age of two, equivalent to the human age of five or six.  They were on this special team together, along with three other boys.

A few months after attending the school, they were assigned to complete a special task: to find the traitor among the ranks of the Xerians, a species of nearly immortal beings.  During the mission, the traitor had captured the girl, along with another boy. The assistant of the traitor, had tried to attract her attention, with much desperation. The girl remembered one thing he had said to her.

“Do you want a snack, Britta?” The assistant was the same species as her best friend, being a Xerian.  Then, the girl realized something. Britta was her name.

“My name is Britta!” she declared, to the female voice.

“Britta… Britta Cadwell?”  the voice questioned. It seemed a tad surprised.

“Yes,” Britta said firmly.  She felt more secure, now that she knew her name.  

“Stranger detected, posing as deceased student of Spy Academy.  Enemy detected. Initiating lockdown protocol.” The voice now seemed robotic, quite artificial.  Britta looked around, alarmed. The door that was once open, suddenly slammed shut. She was confused, wondering why the voice thought she was an enemy.

Will this Britta Cadwell be killed by the security? Or will she be saved? Will the survivor be put to death? Find out in the next and final part.

The Girl in the Pale Blue Bubble Part 1

Part 1 of a new work: The GIrl in the Pale Blue Bubble

Hey everyone! I haven’t been on recently, because I’ve been busy with my first year of high school school. Here’s a section of a short story I’ve been working on. Enjoy!

She was floating in a pale blue bubble, suspended in an infinite slumber.  Long mahogany hair cascaded down her back, brushed to perfection. Months had passed, yet she remained in the same infinite slumber, with a peaceful expression on her face.

She had been discovered in space, floating among the debris of a spacecraft, that was once owned by a snake-like king.  The girl has been surrounded with thousands of deceased reptilian creatures, many with intricate armor.

No one knew what to do with the girl.  She was alive, yet suspended in the seemingly infinite slumber.  So, the bubble sat there, waiting for something to happen.

A black drone entered the room, landing on the fine white carpet.  It began to make a humming noise, slowly vacuuming the carpet, as usual.  Humans no longer did this menial task; robots were an infinite workforce. It vacuumed around the bubble, being extremely careful not to touch or prod the bubble, before flying out the door.

Then, soft music began playing.  It was Mozart, the former inhabitant’s favorite kind of music.  She had died twelve years ago, in a tragic accident. Just like the girl in the pale blue bubble, she had been caught in an explosion, caused by a reptilian king.

The bubble started to emit a humming noise, before starting to vibrate.  It began to vibrate faster, and faster, starting to make a screeching noise.  The baby blue bubble began to burst, little holes forming at first. The holes grew bigger and bigger, water beginning to flow out of the bubble.  The bubble began to shrink, becoming smaller and smaller, until the pale blue skin disappeared, leaving the girl to fall onto the ground.

The Kiss of a Xerious Fox

Gish Tong suspected something was a little off when his delicious brother tried to kiss him when he was just six years old. Nevertheless, he lived a relatively normal life among other humans.

It wasn’t until he bumped into the devilishly stupid Xerious Fox, Stella Woodbrookes, that his life finally began to make sense.

However, Stella proved to be dumb and seemed to have an unhealthy obsession with eating human brains. Gish soon learnt that Stella had taken an oath never to eat a human being.

When Gish’s delicious brother is injured in a delicious accident, Gish realises his own life is at risk.

Despite Stella’s Pearl white fangs and Silky white fur, Gish finds himself falling for the Xerious Fox. Only fate will decided whether she kills or protects him.

One night, a Serpentine appears before Gish and warns him of a darkness within Stella. The Serpentine gives Gish the delicious sword – the only weapon that can defeat a stupid Xerious Fox.

Will Gish find it in himself to kill the only creature who has ever made him feel truly depressed? (Hint: yes!)

INT. THE SPY ACADEMY OF NEPTUNE – AFTERNOON

Arrogant Steak Eater MR. GISH TONG is arguing with Intelligent Professional Fox Mascot/Xerean Model/Amateur Yodeler MS. STELLA WOODBROOKES. GISH tries to hug STELLA but he shakes him off.

GISH

Please Stella, don’t leave me.

STELLA

I’m sorry Gish, but I’m looking for somebody a bit more brave. Somebody who faces his fears head on, instead of running away.

GISH

I am such a person!

STELLA frowns.

STELLA

I’m sorry, Gish. I just don’t feel excited by this relationship anymore.

STELLA leaves.

GISH sits down, looking defeated.

Moments later, Beautiful nerd MR. ROY JR. CHANG barges in looking flustered.

GISH

Goodness, Roy Jr.! Is everything okay?

ROY JR.

I’m afraid not.

GISH

What is it? Don’t keep me in suspense…

ROY JR.

It’s … a magical turd … I saw an evil magical turd obliviate a bunch of Stella fans!

GISH

Defenseless Stella fans?

ROY JR.

Yes, defenseless Stella fans!

GISH

Bloomin’ heck, Roy Jr.! We’ve got to do something.

ROY JR.

I agree, but I wouldn’t know where to start.

GISH

You can start by telling me where this happened.

ROY JR.

I was…

ROY JR. fans himself and begins to wheeze.

GISH

Focus Roy Jr., focus! Where did it happen?

ROY JR.

Xerious! That’s right – Xerious!

GISH springs up and begins to run.

EXT. A ROAD – CONTINUOUS

GISH rushes along the street, followed by ROY JR.. They take a short cut through some back gardens, jumping fences along the way.

INT. XERIOUS – SHORTLY AFTER

SERENITY WOODBROOKES a zoik magical turd terrorises two Stella fans.

GISH, closely followed by ROY JR., rushes towards SERENITY, but suddenly stops in his tracks.

ROY JR.

What is is? What’s the matter?

GISH

That’s not just any old magical turd, that’s Serenity Woodbrookes!

ROY JR.

Who’s Serenity Woodbrookes?

GISH

Who’s Serenity Woodbrookes? Who’s Serenity Woodbrookes? Only the most magical turd in the universe!

ROY JR.

Blinkin’ knickers, Gish! We’re going to need some help if we’re going to stop the most magical turd in the universe!

GISH

You can say that again.

ROY JR.

Blinkin’ knickers, Gish! We’re going to need some help if we’re going to stop the most magical turd in the universe!

GISH

I’m going to need the holy toilet, lots of the holy toilet.

Serenity turns and sees Gish and Roy Jr.. She grins an evil grin.

SERENITY

Gish Tong, we meet again.

ROY JR.

You’ve met?

GISH

Yes. It was a long, long time ago…

EXT. A PARK – BACK IN TIME

A young GISH is sitting in a park listening to some heavy metal music, when suddenly a dark shadow casts over him.

He looks up and sees SERENITY. He takes off his headphones.

SERENITY

Would you like some green apple soda?

GISH’s eyes light up, but then he studies SERENITY more closely, and looks uneasy.

GISH

I don’t know, you look kind of .

SERENITY

Me? No. I’m not . I’m the least magical turd in the world.

GISH

Wait, you’re a magical turd?

GISH runs away, screaming.

INT. XERIOUS – PRESENT DAY

SERENITY

You were a coward then, and you are a coward now.

ROY JR.

(To GISH) You ran away?

GISH

(To ROY JR.) I was a young child. What was I supposed to do?

GISH turns to SERENITY.

GISH

I may have run away from you then, but I won’t run away this time!

GISH runs away.

He turns back and shouts.

GISH

I mean, I am running away, but I’ll be back – with the holy toilet.

SERENITY

I’m not scared of you.

GISH

You should be.

INT. EARTH – LATER THAT DAY

GISH and ROY JR. walk around searching for something.

GISH

I feel sure I left my the holy toilet somewhere around here.

ROY JR.

Are you sure? It does seem like an odd place to keep deadly the holy toilet.

GISH

You know nothing Roy Jr. Chang.

ROY JR.

We’ve been searching for ages. I really don’t think they’re here.

Suddenly, SERENITY appears, holding a pair of the holy toilet.

SERENITY

Looking for something?

ROY JR.

Crikey, Gish, she’s got your the holy toilet.

GISH

Tell me something I don’t already know!

ROY JR.

The earth’s circumference at the equator is about 40,075 km.

GISH

I know that already!

ROY JR.

I love Stella.

SERENITY

(appalled) Dude!

While SERENITY is looking at ROY JR. with disgust, GISH lunges forward and grabs his deadly the holy toilet. He wields them, triumphantly.

GISH

Prepare to die, you Koala meat!

SERENITY

No please! All I did was obliviate a bunch of Stella fans!

STELLA enters, unseen by any of the others.

GISH

I cannot tolerate that kind of behaviour! Those Stella fans were defenceless! Well now they have a defender – and that’s me! Gish Tong defender of innocent Stella fans.

SERENITY

Don’t hurt me! Please!

GISH

Give me one good reason why I shouldn’t use these the holy toilet on you right away!

SERENITY

Because Gish, I am your mother.

GISH looks stunned for a few moments, but then collects himself.

GISH

No you’re not!

SERENITY

Ah well, it had to be worth a try.

SERENITY tries to grab the the holy toilet but GISH dodges out of the way.

GISH

Who’s the mummy now? Huh? Huh?

Unexpectedly, SERENITY slumps to the ground.

ROY JR.

Did she just faint?

GISH

I think so. Well that’s disappointing. I was rather hoping for a more dramatic conclusion, involving my deadly the holy toilet.

GISH crouches over SERENITY’s body.

ROY JR.

Be careful, Gish. It could be a trick.

GISH

No, it’s not a trick. It appears that… It would seem… Serenity Woodbrookes is dead!

GISH

What?

GISH

Yes, it appears that I scared her to death.

ROY JR. claps his hands.

ROY JR.

So your the holy toilet did save the day, after all.

STELLA steps forward.

STELLA

Is it true? Did you kill the magical turd?

GISH

Stella how long have you been…?

STELLA puts his arm around GISH.

STELLA

Long enough.

GISH

Then you saw it for yourself. I killed Serenity Woodbrookes.

STELLA

Then the Stella fans are safe?

GISH

It does seem that way!

A crowd of vulnerable Stella fans enter, looking relived.

STELLA

You are their hero.

The Stella fans bow to GISH.

GISH

There is no need to bow to me. I seek no worship. The knowledge that Serenity Woodbrookes will never obliviate Stella fans ever again, is enough for me.

STELLA

You are humble as well as brave!

One of the Stella fans passes GISH a porcelain the holy toilet

STELLA

I think they want you to have it, as a symbol of their gratitude.

GISH

I couldn’t possibly.

Pause.

GISH

Well, if you insist.

GISH takes the the holy toilet.

GISH

Thank you.

The Stella fans bow their heads once more, and leave.

GISH turns to STELLA.

GISH

Does this mean you want me back?

STELLA

Oh, Gish, of course I want you back!

GISH smiles for a few seconds, but then looks defiant.

GISH

Well you can’t have me.

STELLA

WHAT?

GISH

You had no faith in me. You had to see my scare a magical turd to death before you would believe in me. I don’t want a lover like that.

STELLA

But…

GISH

Please leave. I want to spend time with the one person who stayed with me through thick and thin – my best friend, Roy Jr..

ROY JR. grins.

STELLA

But…

ROY JR.

You heard the gentleman. Now be off with you. Skidaddle! Shoo!

STELLA

Gish?

GISH

I’m sorry Stella, but I think you should skidaddle.

STELLA leaves.

ROY JR. turns to GISH.

ROY JR.

Did you mean that? You know … that I’m your best friend?

GISH

Of course you are!

The two walk off arm in arm.

Suddenly ROY JR. stops.

ROY JR.

When I said I love Stella, you know I was just trying to distract the magical turd don’t you?

THE END
