Betty woke up that morning to find Paige, Pearl and Dinah gone. She didn’t know that they were all the way over at Galaxy Garrison and watching the Rhapsody brothers train. the girls were there and were about to take off, but they were caught by Hunk…
Hunk: *Looking at the girls* Paige, what are you girls doing here? you’re not supposed to be here watching this. this is supposed to be top secret. you girls got to go.
Paige: Why? Why are they doing this?
Hunk: It’s for the greater good. it’s been ordered by Marshall Graham. It’s gotta be done. I’m serious… you girls need to go. if you’re seen here and word gets out about this… it could blow the operation.
Pearl: *Concerned* B-but…
Hunk: Look… i know that you’re worried about them… i am too. this is gonna be a dangerous mission or operation that they’re going on… but there is no stopping it. King John isn’t wanting to do this. he wants there to be another way to do this… but unfortunately… there’s not. go on home. i won’t be going to Arus. i’ll be back at the house later on. but for now… go. go on to school. it’ll be okay.
Dinah: *Sighs* Okay.
Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *Flying off fast back to Metropolis*
However on Planet Doom…
King Lotor: Those pesky Voltron force pilots now got those 4 brothers to take their place. *Listening to the recording* Just listen to this… Are they Kidding me? The Rhapsody Brothers are not pilots. they’re not even part of the Alliance and they’re being allowed to fly the lions? This is too rich. The Alliance is gonna be saved by a few boys who think that they’re men.
Maahox: I believe that they are planning to send you packing. they planned it.
King Lotor: *Shooting a shot of Haggarium at Maahox* Don’t you ever say that to me again. I will not be had yet by the likes of them.
Maahox: Sorry, sire. What do you wish me to do?
King Lotor: Get on the job of yours and send a robeast to Arus and then one to Metropolis. I want them peace lovers kept on their toes… Constantly!
King Lotor Plays back the recordings that came in…
King John: *Walking in* You boys have been accepted to be the pilots of the Lions till the original members of the Voltron force are back in command. and are also being promoted to Lieutenant. That’s a great honor. you boys should wear it with pride and wear it proud. there is a battle effort in place. and i’ve been asked to put it in line by Sky Marshall Graham. You boys know what top secret means?
Prince Alvin: Yes sir. it’s where you earn medals for your efforts and for your devotion to the service. but they send the medals you earn to your relatives.
King John: It means you that you go without knowing exactly where it is that you’re going… you go on those basis or not at all.
Prince Arnold: We understand sir.
King John: There is only one more thing that i can tell you right now…
Prince Avery: What’s that sir?
King John: That’s leave your goddamn paradise shirts at home. you won’t be in need of them for a long time.”
“King John: *As captain Dolittle; speaking to his boys* The Mission that i’m asking you to go on is extremely dangerous. take a good look at the man beside you. it’s a good bet that in the next 6 to 8 weeks… you…or he……… Will be dead. *Looking at his 4 boys* For those willing to accept this mission… Step Forward.
The Rhapsody Brothers step forward and walk over to the training ground and get shown how to fly and pilot the Robotic Lions…
The greatest Ace Pilot Known as Lance McClain could fly a plane high and soar fast as an eagle 50 feet off the Garrison Runway. but i’m gonna train you to fly proud at 469 feet….because at 471 feet… you’re dead. and when you fly the lions… you’re gonna soar higher than you’ve ever soared before…50 feet off the ground. *Looking to the side and seeing Hunk* I’d like you to say hello to Lt. Garret. the surviving member of the Voltron force after the sneak attack. He’s gonna be helping you lighten the load on these fat cats.
Hunk: *Looking at all the boys* okay, get into those lions and take out the heavy items. all the steel plating… All of it. It’s all got to come off. Lose it like a hula skirt.”
Maahox: *Grinning* That one in Yellow. we can use him… can’t we?
King Lotor: No we can not. i don’t want a part of the pesky Voltron force being anywhere near me. i just want them taken out.
Maahox: He won’t be working near us. we’re gonna just use a mind control to get him to turn against the others.
King Lotor: Destruction of a team by one of their very own… *Thinking* That’ll keep those Voltron pests away from me. they’ll be too busy fighting off one of their own and won’t be able to catch me. It’ll allow for a sneak attack and will Render the whole force powerless. *Snickering* HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Maahox: Those Allies to the Voltron force will be unable to catch you and stop the devastation that you send. They’ll have to choose. the people and the innocent bystanders… or the robeasts and the swarm of attack ships.
King Lotor: Get with it.
Maahox: Right away sire.
Although In Metropolis…
Betty: *Walking to school and Wondering where the girls are* I wonder where the girls could have gone. They couldn’t have just snuck out during the night. we would have heard them if they had.
Angel: *Walking with Betty* You would. not me though. i know that they are having to be placed on a tight leash but i’m not gonna be like some dictator to them.
Betty: I am not being like that to them. i just don’t want them to be exposed as freaks. you know that the people have a bit of an issue with super beings. they just don’t like it. that’s why we got to be careful.
Angel: *sighs and Rolling her eyes a little* Why do you keep worrying about what people think? So what if they know? what are we to do about it? All we can do is try to shield the girls from being made fun of by people. that is all we can do. We can’t protect them forever.
Betty: I know that… but if we don’t protect them… then who will. Family protects family.
Angel: And that’s how it will always be. but the girls are growing up a little. They need their own space. Room to grow. Now… they might have gone to chase after the Rhapsody Brothers. but we don’t know… we didn’t see where they went when they left and we didn’t hear them leave.
Betty: What’ll we do?
Angel: There is nothing we can do.
Betty: They can’t miss school. they still have to catch up on all the work that they’ve missed.
Angel: Like that day when they were tied up and their dark clones were in school and purposely trying to fail school?
Angel: *Looking to see where the girls could be* I don’t see them. but i suppose that they’ll be at school.
Betty: I hope so.
Angel: They will.
Betty: *Seeing a Flash of light up ahead* The girls are up ahead…
Angel: *Confused* How can that be? how on earth could they get ahead of us that fast?
Betty: *Seeing Dennis nearby* Oh my… There’s Dennis.
Angel: Let me guess, Betty… you want some time alone with him… right?
Betty: It’s okay. *Smiles* He’s okay with you near.
Angel: *Grins* Hmm. that’s endearing.
Dennis: *Walking over* Hey There Betty… *Seeing Angel* Hello Angel. Morning to you.
Angel: *Smiles* Morning.
Moments later in school…
Paige: *Working on the English class assignment* I sure do feel worried for our cousins.
Pearl: So do i. *Writing* but we can’t do anything. You heard what Hunk said. “It’s for the greater good. it’s been ordered by Marshall Graham. It’s gotta be done.” I don’t want our cousins doing the operation. but it’s not like we can stop it. Love and patience is all we got. all we can do is pray that they are being careful. it’s all we can do.
Dinah: Well… The Rhapsody Brothers are tough. if they’re pilots… so what? they’re gonna do what they’re gonna do.
Teacher: *Looking up and staring at the girls* I’m sorry, are we disturbing you 3 from such a expressive conversation? What are you girls talking about anyway?
Paige: Nothing. We’re just thinking about our cousins. kinda worried about them. *Smiles*
Pearl: It’s a family thing.
Teacher: *Grins* Hmm… I see.
Dinah: We’re not disturbing anyone… are we?
Classmate: *Scoffs* You 3 are disturbing us. but we’re not paying much mind to it. besides… we know about you 3. you 3 are always running out for something. But as to what you 3 could be doing… beats us.
Paige: *Sighs* oh god…
But the peace wasn’t had for long…
Teacher: *Jumps in a start* What was that?
Paige: *Looking out the Window* Oh no… It’s a Robeast. a mean one at that… *Seeing it nearby and coming at the school* ….. *Shoots out* It’s coming this way!
Pearl: *Looking at her sisters* What’ll we do?
Dinah: *Getting up and getting mad* We go kick its sorry behind.
Teacher: How are you gonna do that? that’s a monster. it’ll Crush you.
Paige: We’re gonna fight it. we have to do something… Teacher, we got a confession to make…
King Lotor: *Voice* Prepare to meet your maker Rhapsody Girls… I know you’re there. Come on out. unless you want to be the cause of many kids being hurt by my Robeast Warrior sent out by me… KING LOTOR OF PLANET DOOM!!! Paige… Pearl… Dinah… Rhapsody Girls Z! come on out!
Teacher: *Freaked out* Who is This King Lotor? There is no such person… What is he talking about? H-h-h-h-how does he know you?
Pearl: because we’re…
Dinah: *Feeling the confession coming out* Oh… god. don’t say it… don’t let it out.
From their home…
Pidge: *Giving the call* Rhapsody Girls… WE NEED YOU!!!
in the classroom…
Paige: *Seeing her power buckle flashing* …
Teacher: *Spotting something flashing around the girls waists* What’s that flashing around your waists?
Dinah: *thinking to self* don’t say it. please don’t say it.
Paige: Our power belts… because… we’re Supers. We’re the Rhapsody Girls Z.
Dinah: *Groans in disbelief* And she just said it…. ohhhh!!!! *Falling back dizzy and Embarrassed*
Teacher: Well if you’re supers… then do something… Get rid of that thing. *Panicking*
Paige: Well… Girls. you know what we got to do…
Dinah: We might as well transform right here since the secret is out now… *On the floor getting up* Betty and Angel are gonna be really mad when they find out that our secrets out.
Paige: We’ll deal with that later… Right now… it’s time for the….
Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *Together* RHAPSODY GIRLS Z!
Paige, Pearl, Dinah: *Putting their hand up and Seeing a Ring Appear on their finger*
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 hearts* …*Doing formation poses (Doing roundhouse Punches as she spins) revealing her outfit appearing on her after glowing at first* …
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* …
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 some stars with a few sparks of Electricity* …*Doing formation poses (Throwing Punches and Kicks and Peace signs) revealing her outfit appearing on her after glowing at first* …
Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *Fully Transformed and doing a group pose* RHAPSODY GIRLS… Z!
outside the classroom…
Paige: *Looking at the beast* Alright beast… you want to come and attack innocent kids? Well how about taking a break and coming at us?
Pearl: You attack kids… that’s not very nice. Why don’t you stop being so mean… you overgrown monster.
Dinah: Come here, Dinah’s got a nice Whopper of pain waiting for ya!
The beast came closer and with its megaton hand Smacked at the girls pinning them to the ground. Stunning them for a little…
Paige: *Getting up slowly* Ugh! That beast is touchy. Maybe it needs a little lesson in love. *Launching an attack at the beast using her Sonic Wand of Love* Loving Hearts Blast!
Pearl: *Standing up and Looking at the beast with a mean look on her face* You’re a naughty monster. Mean… Maybe a nice bubble bath will get you to be nice for a change. *Launching an attack at the beast using her Bubble Cannon* Bubble Wash-out!
Dinah: *Unphased by the Beasts attack* You want to play rough… Well… Dinah can play just as rough as you can. Take THIS!!! *Launching an attack at the beast using her Sonic Hammer of Thunder* Monster WHOPPER! HIYA!!!!
The beast went down with a Thud but what got the girls surprised was that the real monster was inside the beast. it was a Yeti like Robeast and it was bone-chilling frightening. It had sharp claws and very fatally sharp teeth. The girls were scared and ran off to hide… they didn’t want to face it. However while they hid… they came to realize that the beast was another one filled with Haggarium and if they didn’t do it… their sister Betty would and she’d end up being killed by it. They soon gave a Quick Gulp and with determination… went at the beast with everything they had.
Paige: *Attacking the beast from the left*
Pearl: *Attacking the beast from the right*
Dinah: *Striking the beast with her Hammer and Whacking the beast hard in the center*
Betty: *From the back of the beast* The Kindness of the lord will put the good back in you… you are one of Evil… Now it’s time for you to leave this planet. *Glowing with White light and charging up; Chanting a spell making her Multiply into a thousand Angels; “God imbued power of the heavens, break forth and multiply into many angels of light and Sacred might”; Surrounding the target with Crosses and angels; trapping the target and pinning the target onto the cross; Launching the attack at (The Yeti Robeast)* Sacred Judgement! Let’s now knock this beast back and condemn it! *Holding her hands out and Emitting a energy ball in each hand. One pink and one white. making the balls glow bright. Chanting a spell: “Love of the Lord and the love from his heart… Glow bright and grow true… Heavens’s Embrace… make your stand. unleash your might and burn the Unholy being with your light” Making the balls grow and rise to 10 feet in diameter; Combining the balls together and watching the ball grow bigger; Holding her hands back for a split second before lauching the Orb; Launching the attack at (The Yeti Robeast)* Heavenly Orb BLAST!!!!
Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *Landing the Final Blow to the beast* Rhapsody Beam!
The beast let out a loud Earth shaking roar before blowing up into a pile of dust. The Haggarium inside the beast splashed out and landed on Betty, but faded and turned out being just Grape Juice with a little alcohol in it. It was nothing. The Haggarium was nothing. But the battle wasn’t over.
Paige: *Looking at her power buckle and seeing it flash* There is still trouble… We got to go…
Dinah: Paige, What is the trouble?
Pearl: Let’s get our selves over there then.
Teacher: *Calling out* Hey… the trouble is gone… you can come back now!
Dinah: Can’t. *Flying up and on towards to Arus* We got a duty to fulfill… We will be back though…
Paige: Let’s go.
Pearl: *Giggles before flying off* Bye!
The 4 girls then head to Arus and get a good look at what’s going on… they didn’t know what to expect… but they knew that something was up. However they were about to be in for a surprise…
The Lions were also out in the sky and were flying. Paige, Pearl and Dinah were not watching and almost got knocked down…
Prince Alvin: *From inside the lion* Girls, what are you doing here?
Prince Arnold: How did you 3 get here?
Paige: Like you don’t know… we heard there was trouble here.
Pearl: What are you 4 doing here and in those Lions? Those are not yours.
King John: Pearl… that is enough. We are doing this because it is expected. it has been ordered by Marshall Graham. he had it set up and issued for it to happen. therefore it will. I don’t like this anymore than you 3 do. but we were given an order. we are not gonna disobey it.
Dinah: *Shoots out* Uncle… What is your deal? You are acting like this is D-Day and like you’re Captain Doolittle leading the Doolittle Raid. Wake up. you’re not Captain Doolittle.
Prince Avery: What are you talking about, Dinah? This is for the greater good. do you really think that we had much of a choice? Hello! this is not like some easy decision. we’re trying to help this planet. the last time we checked… that’s what heroes do. they protect the weak and the innocent.
Paige: We know that… But you guys are going on a death act. this is not right… and you know it. there must be another way to do this… you guys could die doing this….
Dinah: Yeah. That Drule… he is not gonna be playing games. he’s getting more active now and is gonna start sending more danger and more trouble. you are asking for trouble… doing what you’re doing now.
Pearl: *With Tears in her eyes* Please… Uncle King John… Cousins… Please… DON’T DO THIS!!!
Unfortunately there was a beast with means of leveling the Village and then working on the forest and ultimately the castle nearby… it was looming in from the side and it was aiming it’s sights on the castle…
King John: Enough talk girls… There is a beast aiming to cause devastation. Time to See the Rhapsody Force in Action!
Prince Alvin: *Attacking the beast* Lion Grenades!
Prince Arnold: *Attacking the Beast* Lion Ice Beam!
Prince Curtis: *Attacking the beast* Star Duster!
Prince Avery: *Attacking the beast* Lion Torch!
King John: *Forming Lion Blades in the Black Lion’s Mouth* Lion Blades!
Paige: *Sighs* What’s the use… Let’s help them out girls.
Dinah: Time to put the Beast down to sleep…
Will this be a welcomed aide for the girls? what more is to come for the girls? Will there be more trouble just waiting around the corner? Will there be a Cure done up soon for the Voltron Force or will their fate be death by Haggarium infection? Will there be more explanation as to the relationship that Princess Rikku and Pidge used to have? Will it complicate the efforts of fight back King Lotor? What about the innocent crush between Betty and Dennis…Will there be something more between them? Find out in Chapter 15 as the saga of the Adventures of the Rhapsody Girls Z continues…
