Recap of Chapter 11…
“Castle Guards: *Aiming at the intruders and firing back at the Doom guards*
Captain of the castle guards: *Reporting to inside control* They infiltrated the gates. We need back up here.
Coran: *at the controls and over hearing the distress call* Issue the Alarm… Red Alert. *Speaking through the P.A System* RED ALERT! RED ALERT! VOLTRON FORCE… To your stations… on the double… this is not a drill. the castle is under attack. we are under attack.”
“Keith: *To the team* Alright team… Let’s get these intruders! *Attacking the Doom guards*
Lance: Okay Doom pests. say hello to my Dual fire pistols. *Attacking the Doom guards; Firing at the Doom guards*
Hunk: You guards are just asking for trouble. i am a big bear… but when i have my sleep interrupted… I am like a Grizzly bear. Here’s the fury of my Rocking Battle AXE! *Attacking the Doom guards; Cutting at the guards*
Tammy: *Attacking the Doom guards; Firing her Lasers*
Larmina: You unwelcomed guests are seriously a real pain. you woke up a girl from her beauty sleep… Bad move. Big mistake. *Attacking the Doom guards; Whacking them with her battle staff*
Doom Guard Captain: Unleash the Toxic bombs… *Ordering the attack* ATTACK!”
“Paige: *Waking up and in a cold sweat* Ahhh!
Pearl: *Waking up* What’s going on? *Looking at Paige* Paige… *Rubbing her eyes a little* What’s wrong?
Paige: *Feeling unsure* I-i’m not sure. i just had this odd dream. and it felt so real. it felt like it was right here where we are right now. within this city.
Pearl: Was it bad? *Curious and concerned*
Paige: I don’t think so. but… Ugh… it felt so real. it felt like it was dream turned into a reality.
Pearl: What do you think we should do?
Paige: i would say for myself to try to sleep it off… but i have a weird feeling that if i do and the feeling i felt that woke me up really does happen. then it’ll be eating at me.
Pearl: Should i wake Dinah?
Paige: *nods* yeah. we got some investigating to do.
Pearl: *Getting up and walking over to Dinah’s bed and gently shaking her* Dinah?
Dinah: *Talking in her sleep* No… I don’t want to wear no skirt to school. I hate Skirts. don’t send me out in one. i beg you. don’t do it!…”
“Paige: Good point. She has great ears. and she can hear us quite well. she’s almost close to being one radar ears.
Dinah: Let’s climb out the window and climb upon the roof. We’ll be able to get out of being caught that way.
Paige: *Nods* Right.
Pearl: *Nods while Yawning a bit* for 11 year olds… we are sure pushing our luck with this.
Dinah: *Sighs* You said it.
on the roof…”
“Paige: *Sliding the Ring across the Power Buckle; Activating it* PAIGE! *Sliding the power buckle on the belt and moving her hand over it once as it glows releasing a small whirl of Hearts* …*Doing formation poses revealing her outfit appearing on her after glowing at first* … *Doing poses as she suddenly is on the last parts of transforming and seconds later fully Transformed*
Pearl: *Sliding the Ring across the Power Buckle; Activating it* PEARL! *Sliding the power buckle on the belt and moving her hand over it once as it glows releasing a small whirl of Bubbles* …*Doing formation poses revealing her outfit appearing on her after glowing at first* … *Doing poses as she suddenly is on the last parts of transforming and seconds later fully Transformed*
Dinah: *Sliding the Ring across the Power Buckle; Activating it* DINAH! *Sliding the power buckle on the belt and moving her hand over it once as it glows releasing a small whirl of Stars with sparks of Thunder* …*Doing formation poses revealing her outfit appearing on her after glowing at first* … *Doing poses as she suddenly is on the last parts of transforming and seconds later fully Transformed*”
“Pidge: *Tied up* Ugh… those guys sure tied these ropes firmly. i can’t get these things undone. *Trying to shake his way loose and untie himself* Come on… Loosen up here.
Paige: *Running in* Professor? What happened?
Pearl: What’s going on?
Pidge: There are about 10 different ways i can answer that question. but i can’t seem to think. However… the Castle is under attack or was under attack and under a Siege. a mess of Doom Guards came in and attacked us. they first tied me up then went after the others and tied them up in the control room. Bombing them with Toxic Vapors. I think that it was the Haggarium. but i can’t be sure. save them. don’t worry about me. just save them.
Dinah: Got it.
Pidge: Be careful…”
“Doom guard Captain: *Waiting* Where’s King Lotor? He should be here.
Doom Guard: Don’t know, sir. He is on his way. but we have no sight of him.
Paige: *With her sisters* You think that you’re gonna take control of this Castle… think again. there is no room for you here.
Pearl: *Attacking the Doom guards* Magnum Bubbles!
Dinah: 3 is a crowd and you dark menaces are over populating in a place where you’re not welcome. *Smacking the Doom Guards with her Sonic Hammer of Thunder* Crowded Thunder wave!
Paige: *Attacking the doom guards* Love’s blissful Kiss!
Doom Guard Captain: Attack them! Attack the Rhapsody girls, you fools!
Pearl: No you don’t! *Launching an attack* Bubble Knock-out!
Dinah: *Jumping up and then slamming her hammer into a bunch of guards knocking them out* You Doom guards really need to get a new career.
Doom Guards: *Running out* RETREAT! Those girls are tough. Lotor can deal with his own Hostile takeover.”
“Pearl: What’ll we do? we can’t just leave you guys like this… *Worried* There’s got to be something that we can do.
Lance: *without recollection; Inhales some of the fumes and becoming infected* Afraid not kiddo. there is no break through on this infection.
Hunk: I’m the only one not infected. Pidge is also not infected by the Haggarium. He and i will take our things and set up base where your girls live. *Looking at Coran* Inform Allura that this castle is being placed under Quarantine. We’ll find some Temp Pilots to fly the lions.
Coran: *Nods* quite right. This is dreadful news. i don’t know how Dear Princess Allura is gonna take this news.
Paige: She might take it well and decisively. from what you all told us. she seems to be strong holding. she’ll be able to handle this news.
Pearl: *Looking at the guys* …
Dinah: Let’s go check back on the Professor and get him untied.
Paige: Good idea. let’s go. Hunk, start getting things ready. we’re leaving soon.
“Dinah: Let’s get out of here. The Castle is being put under Quarantine. Gramps is on his way to let The Queen of the castle know.
Pearl: yeah. Professor, pack up the lab. you and Hunk are coming to stay at our place. Hunk is already getting ready to go…
Pidge: Is Tammy coming along?
Dinah: Afraid not… *Sighs with regret* She’s got infected with the Haggarium. she’s now contagious. we’re sorry professor. really sorry. we tried to get to them before they got infected. but we were too late.
Pidge: *With Tears in his eyes* No… Tammy. *Packing up the Lab* i can’t bare leaving her… but i can’t just sit and watch helplessly either as she is suffering from the Infection.
Hunk: *Walking in* I’m ready to go. i got my Voltcom all with me. plus i also got change of clothes. several days… maybe weeks worth. and i also got the layaway with me. that way i don’t take much room. I also got the tools needed to fix things that need a fixing. kinda like a return payment to return the thanks for being allowed to stay at their house for the time being.”
Paige: *Walking into the Candy store and picking up a bag of her sweet Chocolates* Mmm. another day at school. i sure couldn’t concentrate on anything. all i could think about was the possible pain that the team is under. most of the Voltron force are infected with Haggarium.
Cashier: *Gasps* Huh?! What are you talking about? You talking ab0ut the Voltron force? How do you know about them?
Paige: I know them… because they just happen to be friends of mine. I am an ally to them. don’t ask how i know them. i just do. *Paying the dollar for her bag of chocolates* See ya! *Walking off with the bag*
Cashier: *Watching her walk off with the bag of Chocolates* I sometimes wonder about her. she’s so jubilant and just rather cheerful. If all my customers were like her… i’d be a busy person. she sure is a happy girl, That’s for sure. *Smiles*
At the Jewelry store…
Pearl: *Smiles and looking at all the sparkly Jewelry* Pretty. I love the glitter on the Jewels. they’re so shiny. *Thinking about school* It’s been a nice day at school. Too bad that i couldn’t focus more on the lessons and take interest in the talk about CPR and what to do when performing CPR on someone. it was interesting. but the thought about the Voltron force being infected with Haggarium just upsets me. plus there is no cure for it.
At the Park basketball courts…
Dinah: *Shooting hoops* What’s the whole deal with you and my sister Betty, Dennis? I see you and her all innocent…but also rather lovey-dovey.
Dennis: What are you talking about? I am just like a really good friend to her. that’s all. i just really like her. *Shooting Hoops* I happen to love her. Call it crazy… a young guy like me… who happens to have a bad habit but has quit it… in love with a girl around my age and all while being in what… the 6th grade i figure. it is pretty crazy.
Dinah: *Feeling rather Dizzy* Love at this young an age. this is awkward.
Dennis: *Shooting hoops* I know. it’s weird. feeling this way about someone when we’re young. it’s too soon. most guys are into other things and think girls at this age are rather… well crawling with Cooties.
Dinah: *Smirks* You guys all think the same thing. That’s an understatement.
Dennis: *Shooting Hoops* What about you, Dinah? You got any crushes? Any sights for a guy of your own?
Dinah: *Weirded out* What are you… Crazy? Are you Cracked? No way. I am not looking into guys right now. besides alot of guys want a girl who is soft and well… a little more girly than what i am. i am a girl who is into sports and being tough. Guys don’t fall for that. i mean… Hello! i am only like what… 11 or something.
Dennis: *Scoffs with a bit of Humor* And you think i haven’t noticed? I noticed. i am still a little young to be even into girls. but… I don’t know… Betty is really pulling my heartstrings. I love her. *Shooting some hoops* Come on… Let’s play some one-on-one.
Dinah: *Dribbling the ball* You bet.
Dennis: And don’t be holding back. you might be a girl and most girls don’t play much sports. but you have good talent. i’ve seen it. i have seen you play. You’re good.
Dinah: *Blushes out of being flattered* Oh… Please… i’m not the best at it. just really driven on it. i love being into sports.
However at Princess Rikku’s house…
Pidge: *Trying to not let the fact that his girlfriend is now infected with Haggarium get to him* How’s the Weapon for Paige coming along, Hunk?
Hunk: It’s coming out well. *sauteing the Wires together and making sure all’s in place* Just about done with the sautering and the final welding. i think that Paige’s new weapon is gonna be a real work of art.
Pidge: *Nods* I agree. Well… Next is Pearl’s weapon. the Weapon she’s gonna have is the Bubble Harp. with the melodious music and the grace of her touch she can release a beam of Bubble energy and each filled with Positive energy. it can also react to her emotions. depending on what emotion she is feeling at that moment. the Weapon will release the bubbles accordingly to her emotions and to what she plays on the bubble harp.
Hunk: Whoa! How big do you think it’ll be?
Pidge: no bigger than a Moon harp that the Princess of the Moon has when she plays it and it plays that catchy melody.
Hunk: Right. Okay. i don’t know what a Moon harp really is… but you know what you’re doing. so i’m gonna help build it where ever and however you designed it. *With his power tools handy* Let’s get to it.
Princess Rikku: *Walking into the Garage* What are you two doing?
Pidge: Nothing much. just building and fixing up new weapons for the Rhapsody girls.
Princess Rikku: Weapons for Paige, Pearl and Dinah?!
Hunk: you got it. it’s an upgrade for their hero powers.
Pidge: *Typing up stuff on the computer and programming the Weapon for Pearl* This weapon has to be a perfect weapon for Pearl. *Looking at Princess Rikku* How’s my Daughter… our Daughter Betty doing?
Princess Rikku: She’s fine. she’s just a perfect fighter. she is very smart.
Pidge: *Smiles and feeling pleased* Now that’s my girl. Smart just like her father.
Princess Rikku: And headstrong and with lots of peace and respect. just like her mother.
Hunk: The Harp is done being welded and sautered together. all it needs are the strings and then it’ll be done. *Looking at Pidge* We’re doing good, Little buddy. The only Weapon left to build now is the one for Dinah.
Pidge: That’ll be taking some time. Because i first have to program the Weapon for Pearl. Paige’s weapon is done. and now Pearl’s weapon is done. we just to program the functions into the weapon and test it.
While they were working on the weapons, they thought about who to get for the duty of flying the lions on a temporary basis till the Voltron force was cured of the Haggarium infection. They didn’t know who to ask and were desperate in finding someone to take the positions for the time being. What they didn’t know was that there was someone on the way to Arus. It was King John…
King John: *Walking into the control room and Meeting with Coran* Coran, it’s been a while since i’ve last seen your presence around. Good to see you again.
Coran: *Nods* quite right. It’s been a while since you’ve been here.
King John: *Seeing the stains on the walls* What’s the Situation? How bad is it?
Coran: It’s not good i’m afraid. it is terrible. we’ve had a Sneak attack from Planet Doom. A Castle Siege… they came in and tried to take control. tying up the Force and it’s worse than that. They’ve all been infected with Haggarium. Keith, Lance, Tammy and Larmina. they all have the infection. the only ones who didn’t get it were Pidge and Hunk.
King John: So… where are they now?
Coran: The team is in the medical wing. being on medical observation. Queen Allura is in distress seeing the force immobilized. we got no one to fill in for the force. The Garrison doesn’t know about the situation yet however it’d be a matter of time before word gets out.
King John: Well i can contact Hunk from here and since he’s still part of the force… he’d be willing to take part in this. we’re gonna need to train some new recruits to handle the responsibilities of flying the lions for the time being.
Coran: When do you want to begin?
King John: *Looking at the security cameras and seeing signs of trouble* As soon as possible. but first get the defenses on this place activated and watch for attack ships. we got to blast them away. it’ll buy us some time needed to notify Hunk to come here and to summon my 4 boys. We’re gonna need the lions ready and set to go.
Coran: *At the controls and getting a message out to the castle guards* All castle guards… to your stations. ready the castle blasters!
As for the team…
Keith: *Laying in bed* Ugh! Laying in bed is depressing. I got to get back on duty.
Lance: *Looking at Keith* how are you planning to do that, Keith? We’re stuck in bed. we can’t get out. plus there are Medical personnel walking around and keeping watch.
Tammy: *With Tears in her eyes* I miss Pidge. Where is he?
Larmina: I don’t know. but he’s probably safe where ever he. Both him and Hunk are gone. no idea where they’re at.
Keith: wasn’t Pidge and Hunk leaving for the girls house? They could be there. i don’t think that they’ll be coming back anytime soon till we are cured of this disease.
Lance: You think that we’ll die from this Infection?
Tammy: *Scared* oh… i hope not. i don’t want to say goodbye.
Larmina: *Whistles* Death by Haggarium… That’s a scary thought.
Queen Allura: *Watching her love Keith from the other room; In tears* Oh… Keith.
Back in Metropolis…
Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *Meeting by the nearby store before heading back to their house*
Paige: It’s getting dark. we better head back home before it gets much more later.
Pearl: *Seeing 4 boys up ahead* Huh?! The Rhapsody brothers?! What are they doing out at this time of the evening? It’s getting rather dark.
Dinah: *Looking at the boys coming their way* Uh oh…
Prince Alvin: *Looking to see the girls up ahead* Hey girls. what’s up?
Prince Arnold: Do they know about us being summoned to being new recruits to take over with flying the lions?
Prince Avery: *Looking at Prince Arnold* SHH! It’s top secret. No one’s supposed to know about it. not even family. Why do you think they call it Top Secret?
Prince Curtis: Yeah! Let’s go… *Running off and within seconds teleporting off*
The Rhapsody Brothers then run off and vanish before a blink of an eye… Paige, Pearl and Dinah couldn’t figure out what was going on… but they were about to soon find out. It was getting more and more darker and they were gonna be in trouble if they didn’t get home right that minute. As soon as they got home to their house, they went right to the Kitchen and right for the Dining room as they saw that dinner was made. it was gonna be really busy for a while… It was a cold night so they had Fried Chicken and Mashed potatoes. there was even hot biscuits and hot cocoa made too. the table was set and they saw where they were gonna sit… they were gonna sit right next to their sisters and the guest. But as for the Rhapsody Brothers… they were on Arus and were going through training which was fast and they got there not long ago. With the training they were doing there… it was clear that things were gonna get heavy soon. They were unaware of what was going on… but they knew that something was not right. What was gonna be in store for the Rhapsody Brothers? Would they be accepted into the lions and would the lions respond and cooperate with them? What would the Rhapsody girls say to it if they found out? Would the Forces of Doom launch an attack to throw them all off guard? What about the Cure? Would it ever be found? Find out in Chapter 13 of the saga as The Adventures of the Rhapsody Girls Z continues…
