Recap of Chapter 5:
“Paige: Why do you want it so much?
Pearl: Don’t you have your own power?
Dinah: If you think that you’re getting your hands on our power… you can dream on. it’s not gonna happen. *Defensive*
King Lotor: *Shaking his finger left and right* Tsk! tsk! tsk! I thought that this was gonna be such an Easy prize. Guess i’ll have to take it by force, won’t i?!
Dinah: You just try it buster… we’ll flatten you like a pizza!
King Lotor: As you wish! *Firing shots of Electicity and burning Haggarium at the girls* HA!
Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *Getting hit by the blast* AHHHHHH!
King Lotor: your power is gonna be mine. *lifting the girls into the air and Tossing them to the side hard* Surrender!
Dinah: *Getting up slowly* Never! You are never gonna get our power! NEVER!
Pearl: *Looking up* Dinah, What are you doing? That guy has Haggarium on him…
Lotor: *Snickers* And plus… what hope does a mere girl like you who looks cute in a Skirt have against the King of Doom?
Dinah: *Hearing the words: “You look cute in a Skirt being spoken* ….. *Shaking and suddenly Exploding with Rage* AHHHHHHHHH! I Told you NEVER TO SAY THAT!!!!!! I…..HATE…..SKIRTS!!!!! *With a Rampage Going after King Lotor*
The battle went on for a little and Dinah was letting King Lotor have it with each Swing. giving him a Left and right and Thumping him hard. But with all her might… the Drule king kept on coming and it tired Dinah out… With a quick Swoop of the Drulish charms… King Lotor grabbed at the girls and ripped off their power belts and wore them on his waist.
King Lotor: YES!!!*With the Powers of the Rhapsody girls* Infinite….ABSOLUTE POWER!!!!!! *Laughing in a chaotic victorius manner* MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA…….. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *Looking up at him scared and shaking*
King Lotor: *Calling his Guards* Guards!
Guards: *Answering* Yes my Liege!
King Lotor: TAKE THEM TO THE DUNGEON!!!!”
In the Dungeons of Planet Doom…
Pearl: *Crying* I Want Mom. i don’t like it here. this is the worst day of our lives.
Paige: *Crying* So do i. i want mom too. We’re trapped in this cell and there is no way out.we don’t even have any strength left to try and break out through the window. there are bars there and they must be thick platted. there’s no way that we’ll be able to get out of this Dungeon. *Getting up and walking to the Window*
Dinah: *Sighs* Yeah. That Lotor has got us. we’re totally sunk. *Getting up and looking out the opening in the door to see darkness* This is just great. we’re stuck here. and there is no one who can hear us scream or yell. This is just some luck we’re having now… isn’t it? *Walking back to the middle and Sitting down*
Paige: *Looking at the window overlooking the deserted background of Planet Doom* I wonder if anyone’s gonna come looking for us. They came here looking for Larmina. and rescued her. What about us?
Dinah: *Snaps* Wake up, you romantic Daydreamer… There was no rescue… Larmina was let go. she was never really caught. this was all a trap. we were lured into a trap. King Lotor has us locked into a cell. there is no escape for us at all. there is nothing we can do. we’re sunk. okay. you got that… SUNK!
Paige: What has gotten into you Dinah? *A Little hurt*
Dinah: *Looking crossed at Paige* what’s gotten into me…What’s gotten into me? You wanna know what’s gotten into me? I’ll Tell you… We Were lured here into a trap by one of our own. a friend. She didn’t mean it… but she still did it anyway and the Damage is done. she’s been let go and we get trapped here. King Lotor takes our powers and then has the guards throw us in the Dungeon. Now… WE ARE IN THE DUNGEON!!! WE’RE DOOMED!!!
Pearl: *Cries out* Dinah… Stop it! *trying to get Dinah to calm down* Dinah… Calm down. You’re scaring me by yelling like that.
Dinah: *Pushes Pearl Down* Get off… Stop Climbing on me. why don’t you Grow up? Not everything is all peaches and sweets. Does this look like some sort of an amusement park? this is not some game. we’re prisoners here. with no way out. we’re stuck. and your crying about it is really grating on me.
Pearl: *Looking at Dinah* B-but…. *With her lips quivering and suddenly breaking down in tears*….. *Running to the other side of the Cell in tears and crying into her hands*
Paige: Great Dinah… that’s just wonderful. You sure are a good sister. Making her cry like that. you know how sensitive that she gets.
Dinah: *Sighs; Looking down* I feel really ashamed.
Paige: *Upset* you should be. this is not the best place for us to be. and you know that. We’re not supposed to be here. Pearl is not happy being here and you should have seen it. this place is even scaring me.
Dinah walks over to where Pearl is and motions to talk to her. Apologize to her…
Dinah: *Beside Pearl* Pearl…i’m sorry for what i said to you. i didn’t mean it. i’m just acting out and venting my anger and frustration over the mess we’re all in. You know that i Love you, right? i may snap at you and may sometimes get angry. but you’re still my sister. i really am sorry for saying those things to you like that. that was not right of me to do. i really ought to be ashamed of myself for doing that.
Pearl: *Crying into her hands and hearing Dinah’s words* … *Suddenly looking at her sister while with a tear soaked face* Really?
Dinah: Of course/ *Smiles a little*
Pearl: *Suddenly going to hug her sister* …. *Hugging Dinah while still with tears in her eyes*
Dinah: *Hugging her sister* There there… it’s gonna be okay. Let’s try to figure a way out of here.
Pearl: Okay. *Nods as she starts to cheer up a little*
Paige: *Walking over and looking at the walls; Looking for way out of the cell* There must be a way out. we got to find it.
Dinah: We happen to have our Lunches and it’s probably Lunch time now at school. Why don’t we have our lunches now and then get back to looking for a way out. we’ll be able to think better with food in our stomachs.
Paige: Good idea Dinah.
Pearl: Let’s eat.
Even though they were trapped in a Dungeon, and with no way out… they at least were able to have something to eat. they had brought their lunches with them. They sat down and started eating their meals and just sighed while eating. they knew that there was gonna be nothing that they could do to escape.
But in the Throne Room….
King Lotor: These powers… they feel good. *Dancing with his Harem* This is the best day of my life. the powers are mine. there is no way they can stop me now… they are gonna be trapped in the Dungeon for a long time. They can never leave. Because Soon… they’ll be turned into Robeasts…. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Harem Girls: King Lotor, you’re so tough and Manly… *Lovesick*
King Lotor: And don’t you forget it? *Cackles*
However outside the castle and on their way back to Arus…
Keith: Larmina, Are you okay?
Larmina: *Devastated* What the hell do you think? I just Lured the 3 girls into a trap. King Lotor’s got them and they are in danger. they’re doomed and…. *Breaking down* It’s All My Fault!
Hunk: No it’s not your fault, Larmina. You were being intimidated and manipulated by that Drule. but it’s not like you did it on purpose. plus he had a dozen or more guards all aimed to fire at you. what were you to do. Sure… you could have fought them all off. but at what cost? there were too many of them and some of those blasts would have gotten you anyway.
Lance: So… What do we do?
Tammy: You guys go on ahead to Arus… I’m going back. i’m going to rescue them.
Keith: *Nods* Okay. But Tammy… Be careful.
Tammy: Right. *Turning back and going back to Doom* I’ll be careful.
Although in Metropolis….
Betty: *Looking for Paige, Pearl and Dinah* Where Are they?
Angel: *Shrugs* I don’t know. *Looking for the girls* They couldn’t have gotten lost… right? And they sure didn’t leave the school.
Betty: *gasps* You don’t think that they Vanished or snuck out… do you?
Angel: Oh please don’t go there with that… there is no way that they could have snuck out. too many people would have seen them.
Betty: Let’s look around for them. i’ll check the front… you check the back and we’ll meet in the middle.
Angel: okay. if i happen to find them before you i’ll signal you. or you happen to find them before me… you’ll let me know.
Betty: you got it.
Betty and Angel head out to scour the whole school to look for Paige, Pearl and Dinah… they searched above… and through. the buildings and the sides. the gates and the corners. Angel didn’t see anything and neither did Betty. They searched the whole school 3 times and then called out their names… there was no response. Betty began to panic for she knew that their mother was going to be really upset if they didn’t come home with them. They kept looking and asking around. what Betty didn’t know was that her crush Dennis happened to catch sight of the girls taking off. he didn’t see where they went. but saw them running out of class. Betty met up with him and asked him what he saw and he told her from memory and as best as he could remember… what he saw and where he was when he saw it. Betty sighed and shook her head in disbelief for she didn’t know what to say. she was rather embarrassed and a little mortified knowing that now her crush knew the secret that the girls were hiding. it was not the worst nightmare… but it didn’t make her feel all that good either.
However as they were continually searching for the girls… they caught sight of 3 bags in a classroom. unattended and had names on them…
Betty: *Pauses* I found their bags. but no sign of them. they were here last. before they ran off. but where did they go?
Pidge: *Walking over from the side* Betty, what are you doing here. School is over now. Where are your sisters?
Betty: *Sighs* I don’t know, dad. i am trying to find them and i have had no luck. i don’t know where they could be at all.
Pidge: I also have been trying to look for them myself. i have had no luck. i was meaning to talk to them about something. i was doing research and looking for answers behind the powers that they received. but haven’t found a thing. it’s almost as though they were just at the right place at the right time.
Betty: i found their bags here. but they’re gone. i just don’t see them anywhere.
Pidge: We’ll find them. they’ve got to be here somewhere.
Back on Planet Doom in the Dungeon…
Paige: *Looking for a weak spot* There must be a weak spot here somewhere.
Pearl: I am sure that there is. *Looking for a weak spot in the wall* maybe there is a weak spot in the floor and we could climb our way under and to the other side of this wall and make it outside this cell.
Dinah: Not very silent. but… Eh, it’s the best we got. Let’s do it. *Checking the floor for a weak spot and looking for a way out* There’s got to be a way out of here somewhere.
But in the throne room…
King Lotor: *Feeling Numb and in pain from the belts* Ahhhhhhh! Curse these belts… why are they acting up on me? *Enraged* GAHHHHH! I’m gonna give these back to the girls… these blasted things are malfunctioning on me and it’s DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!! BLAST THE WHITE POWERS!!!! CURSE IT AND ALL IT REPRESENTS!!!! GAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
King Lotor got up and stormed out of the throne room… He was Pissed and wanted to lash out but couldn’t while he was wearing the belts. It got him even more enraged. What he didn’t know was that while he was coming to the Dungeons to release them the girls were breaking out and were on their way to the outside. but were caught before they could reach the outside. They were caught by the Drule king himself…
King Lotor: You 3 have tainted powers… these are not even worth my presence. You want your pathetic powers of the light…. Here! TAKE THEM!!!! *Ripping the power-belts off of him and tossing them at the girls*
Paige: *Getting her strength back* my powers…
Pearl: *Feeling better* The light… it feels better…
Dinah: *Jumps up and Jubilant* Our powers are back again….
Paige, Pearl and Dinah: *With their power belts on and Nodding at each other with cheer* The Rhapsody girls are Back!
Paige: we’re with powers again.
Pearl: we’re back…
Dinah: And you know what that means… don’t you?
Paige and Pearl: *Nodding* Uh-huh!
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!
Paige: *With her sisters looking at King Lotor* You are in trouble… Now it’s time to get a bit of your just desserts…
Pearl: Hurting sweet innocent girls. Didn’t your mommy ever teach you to play nice and be nice to girls?
Dinah: not to mention to watch who you cross. We’re gonna teach you a little bit on what happens when you don’t play fair. Spoiled sports never prosper.
Paige: *Launching an attack at King Lotor* Love’s beam!
Pearl: *Launching an attack at King Lotor* Bubble splash!
Dinah: *Launching an attack at King Lotor* Thunder Hammer!
King Lotor: *Taking the hits* Ahhh! Just get out of here… i don’t want to fight you girls anymore right now… i got pains and a headache. so just spare me the drama and just go! GET OUT!
Paige, Pearl, Dinah: *Running out of the castle and heading to a clearing*
The girls ran out and got as far away from the castle as they could get. they never wanted to go back there again. They were lucky that time and didn’t meet their Doom. but they were very close to meeting the end. Locked in the Dungeon… with no powers… with no way out. With uncertain demise. they never wanted to face that again… Ever. But as they ran… they started to feel a bit lost. and within minutes… they were right by the castle again… How were they gonna get back home…
Paige: How did we get back here? where are we?
Pearl: Paige… I think that we just ran in circles and are right back to where we started.
Dinah: *Grins* How’d you guess. *Noticing the castle and seeing a whole swarm of guards coming out* Aw man! this is ridiculous. don’t tell me that we got to fight these guys again…
Suddenly there was noise coming from the sky and it started getting louder… Paige looked up and saw that it was one of the lions and sighed…
Paige: *Looking at her sisters* We’re saved. we’re gonna get rescued from this planet…. Look up there girls.
Pearl: *Looking up* Huh?! *Recognizing the Green Lion* Oh… It’s…It’s… IT’S TAMMY!!!!
Dinah: What?! Alright. *Waving her hands in the air getting the attention of the green lion* Hey… Tammy… Down here.
Tammy: *From the Green Lion* Are you girls okay?
Paige: *With tears of relief in her eyes* We are now.
Pearl: Take us home…
Dinah: yeah… i think that we’ve more of this planet than we can stand.
Tammy: *Lowering the Lion down to pick up the girls* Hold on.
Within seconds the green lion was lowered on the ground and the girls climbed inside from the side and sat down. The nightmare was for now over. but it was not over yet. they knew that King Lotor was gonna be back. Tammy saw that the girls were worn out and let them sleep.
Tammy: *Flying the Lion back to Arus* Tammy to Arus Control Room… Tammy to Arus control Room… come in.
Coran: *responding* We read you Tammy… Come in.
Tammy: I got the girls… the 3 girls are in the lion with me and we’re coming back. I’m on my way back with them.
Coran: Good work. How are they?
Tammy: They’re tired and very exhausted. but they’re just fine now. they’re sleeping. they must have been through a lot.
Coran: Quite right. bring them in. We’ll notify their mother and sisters at once…
Tammy: I’m on my way.
Tammy pressed on back to Arus with the 3 girls. The girls were worn out and from the situation that they were in… it was a sign that it was not gonna be the last of King Lotor. at that moment… they were lucky to make it out of his clutches unscathed and with a couple of bruises but they were no less fit for the wear of being fighters and the protectors of all that’s good.
Back at Metropolis…
Betty: The girls are nowhere to be found.
Angel: What’ll we do?
Betty: I don’t know… however i know that there is only one thing that we know must be done. We’re gonna have now other choice but to tell mom that the girls are gone and have vanished.
Angel: *Sighs* we’re gonna have to. there is not much we can do. she’s probably waiting for them to come home right now.
Betty: i know. *Looking at her dad* We’ll have to tell my mom that they’re gone. she’s gonna be upset.
Pidge: Well… you girls have done your best to find them… you checked all over the school here and knew that they couldn’t have gone far. but were not able to find them… there is only so much you can really do.
Pidge’s phone suddenly rang and buzzed seconds later and Pidge answered it to find out some good news. He listened to the good news coming in and just cheered in relief. there was a cause for cheering. The moment he got off the phone… he told Betty and Angel and they soon were so ecstatic about it that they too were cheering… They made way with Paige’s, Pearl’s and Dinah’s bag and brought them along with them as they went to Arus to pick the girls up… they were relieved that the girls were okay and were fine. Betty couldn’t wait to see them. The girls got there within minutes through a bit of teleportation and speed. Betty and Angel warped to the castle and got the girls. the Girls were asleep and tuckered out. but were alive and well.
at the home of Princess Rikku and the family’s…
Paige: *Waking up* What happened?
Pearl: *Waking up* I don’t know… but we’re home. It’s great that we’re home again. that place was a nightmare.
Dinah: You can say that again. That Drule was just a real pain.
Pearl: Plus he sure wasn’t being very nice.
Paige: Villains never are Pearl. Villains usually are vile and vicious.
Dinah: Well if that Drule starts with me again… i’ll knock him with my hammer.
Pearl: Let’s forget about the Drule. right now… let’s just be glad that we’re back home.
Paige, Pearl, Dinah: *Relaxing*
Paige, Pearl and Dinah were back home and lived to tell the tale of being in the Clutches of King Lotor… but with realization that they were almost done for… With all things considered… What was gonna be in store for them next? Would they forgive Larmina for risking their lives despite the circumstances? What was King Lotor gonna do next? What was gonna be his next move? Who would be the target of the next wave of attacks from the King of Doom? Would it call for extra help from the 4 brothers? Find out in Chapter 7 of the saga as The Adventures of the Rhapsody Girls Z continues…
