Author's Note: So I've lost my save. It's okay! I'll just finish this substory and leave the rest up to you, the readers. And so, William's advisors slowly disappeared. Where did they go? Who holds them hostage? Who is whisking them away from the Netherlands? Hmm? Hmm? Oh that's right, you don't know. Records found dating 450 BC William: ... Something's off. Does anyone know what's wrong? Janet? Pippin: Ooh! Ooh! I know! Pick me! Pick- Janice: ... (considering the possiblilities) hmm, no. Nope. I don't think so. What about you, Captain Sham? Pippin: Oh! I know. Pick Pippin! He knows what- Sham: (thoughtfully) ... no. I don't believe that anything is wrong. What do you think is going on William? William: Something is off. Pippin: Pick- Sham: (loudly) Shut UUUUUUUUUUUUP! *shakes his head violently while saying that* Pippin: *eyes widen in shock* (quietly) me. *slowly walks out* William: Ah well. It's probably just my imagination. Sham: Yeah. Good night then, sir. *exits* Janice: Yeah, yeah. Good night. *exits* William: ... ... ... ...? Pippin: *enters* My lord William, I know what is wrong! William: Yeah? Let me guess. Pippin: Hmm? William: Everyone is disappearing. You don't feel safe anymore. Janet doesn't seem to like you at all. And Knarl isn't taking advantage of you. Like that last time when he had you digging through the ground for buried treasure, which really turned out to be my old gym socks. Pippin: *scowls* Well, yeah. Basically that's what I think's wrong. Uh, okay then, good night, my lord. *exits* William: ... heh, and I just figured it out too. *smiles* Records found dating 430 BC Sham: Any one of us could be a murderer. Or, it could be someone from the outside. Personally, I'm not taking my eyes off of any one of you. Not only is this for your own safety, *lowers voice* but mine too. William: (confused) Huh? What'd you say? Sham: I didn't say anything. Pippin: (innocently) But then why did you start out by saying "Not only is this for your own safety"? Sham: And your point is ...? *stares down Pippin* Janice: Well, I agree with Captain Sham. We should stay in this room together so that nobody can pick us off one by one and none of us will kill anyone else. Pippin: (dazed) Kill? *clutches head and moans* Ohhhhh. William: *pouts* Well, I want some gummi bears. *sits down and crosses his arms* Why don't you go Janet? Janice: Well, alright then. *exits* Sham: Shouldn't we all go with her? Pippin: (eagerly) Janet can take care of herself! She's a scary lady. *nods* William: Yeah, Sham. She'll be fine. Lighten up why don't you. Sham: Wanna fight? William: Now, I don't think that- (Cue: Scream offstage) ... what was that? Pippin: *wails* Oh no! Janet! *runs out of the room* Sham: Quick let's save her! *charges out of the room with a war cry* William: Uh, okay. *nonchalantly walks out of the room* Janice: (meanwhile) Heh heh. Here they come. *hides* Pippin: *runs by* Aaaaaaaaaagh Jaaaaaaaaaanneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet! Janice: Mmm hmm. *blinks a few times* Right. Sham: For chivalry! Janice: Boo! *jumps out of her hiding place* Sham: Waaaaah! *trips and falls on his face* Owwww.... Janice: So. You thought that a girl needed saving. Sham: ... yeah, basically. *gets up* Janice: Well, you thought wrong. Sham: ... what? Janice: Turn around, fool. *points behind him* Sham: *turns around* What am I supposed to be seeing? *turns back around* Janice: Oh. Wait. I was supposed to run away, wasn't I? Ah well. Hey. Look behind you now. *points* Sham: Oh, no. I'm not falling for that again. *wags his finger in front of her. William: *enters with a pot in one hand* Surprise! *hits Sham on the back of the head* Sham: (woozily) I guess I lose.... *falls unconcious* Pippin: *enters running* Aaaaaaaaaaagh! Their after meeeeee- *trips over Sham* Ack! Janice: Ah. Pippin. It's about time you came. Pippin: Huh? What happened to Captain Sham? Janice: There's been a little accident. Come along, Pippin. Pippin: Where are we going, Janet? Janice: We're going to where all the cool kids hang out. Pippin: (innocently) The cool kids, Janet? Janice: Yeah, we're going to go right now. William'll come later too. Pippin: Uh, okay. What about Captain Sham? Janice: Oh, he'll be fine. Well, let's go. Records found dating 410 BC Janet: (in a cell) So. You got captured too, eh Nobel? Nobel: *enters with Guard* Yes, vell, so did you, my zittle munchskeen! *is pushed into another cell and locked in* Guard: (foreign sounding voice) Okay, okay now, shut up now. Okay. Please. Janet: Hey! Guard! Guard: *approaches Janet* Yes? Janet: I could give you a good time.... *winks* Just come a little closer. *giggles* Guard: Hmm, you know, I would, but I'm straight. Knarl: Mmph??? Nobel: (shortly) Vat? Janet: Are you implying that I am a- Kindle: *wakes up* Huh?! Guard: *hits Kindle on the head* Geez, people! *shouts* I'M FEMALE!!! Nobel: *snickers* Guard: Oh? What's so funny old man? *approaches Nobel* Huh? Got some sort of mental problem? Huh? ********. *laughs deeply* Hurr hurr hurr. *lowers voice dramatically and lengthens the next word* Retar-ded. Janet: Hmmmm. ... Hey, Nobel? Nobel: Vat is it, voman? Janet: I would like to hear one of your more recent lectures if you would oblige. Nobel: Ah, yes, vhere vas I? Ah, right- *head droops and starts to snore* Janet: ... Guard: ... And that was your amazing plan, wasn't it? Janet: Yeah, pretty much. Guard: Well, I wouldn't do that again, you female dog! *nears her and hits her with a wooden stick* Janet: Ouch! Hey! *slaps Guard* Guard: *steps back and untwists her neck* Huh. ... Okay. Kindle: Ughhh. *stirs* Guard: *hits her on the head* I never get tired of this. Janet: ... Hey, guard? Guard: Yeah? Janet: Shouldn't we be being debriefed by the evil mastermind of this plot with its genius plot twists and connections, already? Guard: Just hold on for a moment. ... (Cue: Slamming Door and Echoing, Approaching Footsteps) I think they're here. Tribute: Oh noes! The cast will have a final showdown! And then, game over. It has been a fun run. Be sure to check out the last installment as well as my next story that will update more often after this one ends. ... So wait. You're female?! Guard: Yes! (hysterical) They get it already!!! Tribute: Sure. If you really wanna be one. Janet: *appears behind Tribute* (menacingly) And what's that supposed to mean?! Tribute: (small voice) Mommy. *runs away* Janet: *chases* Get back here!
