''OH MY GOSH! I'm a Mochi!!" yelled Feliciano as he started to freak out. "I'm a white freaking ball with eyes! WHAT THE HECK? Veeeeeee~ All my prettiness! GONE!''. Alfred just rolled his eyes at Feliciano's whining, and thought about how he was in the same situation too. "Dude, you weren't all that good looking
" mumbled Alfred.
!'' Feliciano said as he jumped and knocked Alfred and himself off the table and off the balcony. "OW! What was that for?" yelled Alfred. "Why do you think? But anyways, I think we should run
" said Feliciano as he started to panic, considering the fact that there was a gigantic dog running towards them. "Why? What's wro- HOLY SHI-!" yelled Alfred as he started to hop across the table, along with Feliciano.
All the food flew everywhere, along with the drinks, while the dog chased Feliciano and Alfred. Everybody stared at the chaos, as to where Matthew was almost panicking because he realized that Alfred had escaped from the box he was put in. "Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear
" said Matthew as he hurried to the room where he was formerly hiding Alfred.
When Matthew finally got into the room, he ran to the large brown closet, and opened it up. "Maple
.!" Matthew cursed as he saw that the box where Alfred was supposed to be was empty. "Whoa!" he yelped as Arthur, the man who caused Alfred to be a Mochi, started hovering over him.
He wore a white mask with bright green eyes peering through them, a black top hat on a head of messy, blond hair, and a black suit with a red tie. "What happened to that little pest?'' Arthur asked with his thick British accent. "He may have escaped
" he got in reply. "WHAT? You let him go?!" yelled Arthur. "Well, he looked like he was going to pass out from lack of oxygen! So I opened the box a little to let some air in
" said Matthew as he hid his face. Arthur sighed from irritation. "This will only be a minor bump in the road. As long as we have my friends from the other side, and this talisman, we'll be fine." Arthur said as he lifted the item from Matthew's neck to show emphasis. Matthew nodded in agreement. ''Now, go back to the dance. Everyone should be looking for the prince by now." Arthur said as he started to push Matthew out of the room. "Now
time to summon my friends
--*back to Feliciano and Alfred*--
''So, you mean to tell me this all happened because of a magical man?'' asked Feliciano as he hopped along the trail of the bayou they were now in. The bayou had a large swamp with green algae everywhere, vines connecting the trees, and the smell of pine and musty water filled the air. "Yep!" said Alfred as he hopped along with Feliciano. "That makes no sense! How could a magical man just randomly turn you into a Mochi? That's just crazy!" yelled Feliciano as his curl started to crinkle. "Whoa! Dude! Calm down! I'm totally serious! The guy's name was Arthur I think
he said he could give me a better future
considering the fact that I'm flat out broke." Replied Alfred as he jumped over a tree branch that was sticking out of the swamp they were going through. Feliciano tried his hardest not to laugh, but his efforts failed. "Hah-hah-hah-hah! You're broke too~? Il mio amico~ You seriously need to get yourself together! I mean, ho rotto troppo~ But at least I'm not un principe AND broke! That makes no sense either!" exclaimed Feliciano as he started to calm down from laughing too hard. "Dude! Stop speaking other languages! I don't know what you're saying! What the heck does 'oo-n principie' mean!? And don't make fun of me! I'm only out of money because I need to learn how to earn it. Shouldn't be too hard, right?" said Alfred as he stuck his tongue out. "Vee~ You're pronouncing it wrong. Its un principe, and its Italian, duh~ And it means 'Prince', while il mio amico means 'My friend'. Do you want to have a lesson on Italian~? I'll be happy to teach you!" exclaimed Feliciano with a bright smile. He really did love his home country.
"No thanks, dude. Don't we have more important things to think about before we start playing around?" said Alfred as he rolled his eyes. "Oh yeah
that is right
By the way, it is very hard to earn money nowadays! You have to find a job and everything! Good thing I'm good at cooking! It's easy to find a job that has to do with cooking!---Hey? Are you listening to me?" said Feliciano as he noticed that Alfred was staring at some green log thing in the distance that appeared to be coming closer.
The thing that they thought was a medium sized green log was actually an alligator. "Holy
" said Feliciano, but he was too stunned to finish his sentence as he saw the animal emerge from the water, showing his sharp teeth.
"Hola, mi amigos!"
what?'' said Feliciano and Alfred in unison. They were surprised they weren't eaten by now.
"I said~! Hola! Mi amo Antonio~" said the alligator. "Vee~ Ciao, Antonio! My name's Feliciano!" exclaimed Feliciano with a huge smile. "Dude! This guy was about to eat us! You just can't go from being terrified to being all happy and friendly! It's just not natural!" scolded Alfred. "Oh, no no no no~ I don't eat other animals, or humans for that matter, because
well, honestly I don't know. I just never got used to it I guess. I'm more of a taco or churro kind've gator, y'know?" said Antonio with a thick Spanish accent. "Oh! Well, my name's Alfred!" said Alfred in a kinder tone. "Hola, Alfred! So, tell me, what are you guys doing out so late? It's not the safest place to be around this time
" said Antonio as he scratched his head. "Well
