Wink I knew something was missing.

It's time for another story link thread. This is probably my favorite game. For all you new guys & girls, basically each person writes one or two lines of a story, and then the next person continues where the other person left off. Text that involves the story should be in bold, to make it stand out from any side comments. Using colors doesn't hurt, either.

I'll start...

Manny was late for an important appointment, as usual...


Guy.

...an entertaining diversion that was bound to earn him a smack in the chops one of these days. But that didn't worry Manny in the slightest...


Jolly good.

What worried him was what the expression on Don's face would be at this "meeting". He upped his pace coming back to the office to try to save time, but managed only to trip over something protruding from the sidewalk...

Mildly pissed, he picked himself up, dusted himself off and looked around for the cause of his little trip to the ground. Behind him he discovered a small, hard and metallic object that seemed to be partially set into the concrete...


Jolly good.

Manny blinked for a moment
and then he let out a whistle
of surprise. Holy Chipatas!
Can it Be? It Looks like
it is the long lost Baby rattle
of the serpent goddess:
I'pheal Lhyk T'Chiccan T'ohnite
Lhyk T'Chiccan T'ohnite

"Hmmm" he thought to himself. "How do I get it out of there?" He scratched his skull for a moment. "Aha! I know."...


Jolly good.

...Golden Boy, of Prima Donnarary fame. "The question is" Manny said to himself "how did it get stuck there in the first place?" As he stood wondering, and forgetting about urgent appointments, a shadow fell over the object of his musings. Turning around, he saw...

Isis Kaladeravera
Goddess of the 9 and 3\4's
underworld, swooping down
from the skies, resplendid
in her Happy Noodle Boy
Mech-Tech Cyborg Anime amour
leading an entire attack
squadron of X-Wing Flying Monkey
Zombie Ninja Power Puff Fighters
straight at Manny, intent to get
the baby rattle before he could.

Manny was in a bad way, and let Isis know this fact as she swooped in to grab the rattle. She felt sorry for the skeletal chap and offered him pity. "Here", she suggested, "Take my pity. I won't be needing it."
With that, she snatched the rattle and flew off with her entourage.

Manny was left scratching his head, perplexed and marvelling at the strength that allowed Isis to rip the rattle right out of the concrete like that. Finally, he shrugged his shoulders and continued on his way. He had not gone three steps, however, as he remembered something... "Sh*t, the meeting!" He took off at great speed, but his momentum was halted abruptly, as he ran full tilt into...


Jolly good.

Gendo el Greatos!
underground, underworld leader
of the LSAA
"lost souls anime alliance."
Gendo who is always monitoring
the activities of Isis Kaladaravera
his nemesis and arch rival,
saw Isis' pity and let out a laugh
"HA" el Greatos spat.
I see the snake goddess underling
has snatched up the rattle
and left you with her pity.
I have more to offer you Manuel,
I will not give you my pity;
I will help supply you with
machines and means and meassures
and demonic fire pigeons
which will help you
catch Kaldaravera
and defeat her,
thus retreiving the rattle."
