A small wind blew in the Mushroom Kingdom. It curled around a small two floor house and left with a loud sigh. This house belonged to the hero of the Mushroom Kingdom and his brother. The hero business didn’t pay the bills, but it helped build a reputation. These brothers were plumbers, very talented plumbers. The older brother, the hero, was a short, stocky, and stout man. He had a black, bushy mustache and brown hair with blue eyes and a big nose. He usually wore a red shirt with blue overalls, brown boots, white gloves, and a matching red hat with a white circle embossed with a red M which, coincidentally, was the first initial in his name, Mario Romano. He had a younger brother who was tall and lean, had a smoother mustache, and dressed like Mario, except in green and had an L on his hat to show his name, Luigi Romano. These brothers were Italian immigrants from New York. After a plumbing job sent them down the drain, literally, they wound up in the Mushroom Kingdom and rescued the princess from the evil Bowser Koopa, ruler of Darkland. The princess was Peach Toadstool and she wore a pink dress. She was blonde and had blue eyes like Mario and Luigi. Mario started dating Peach while Luigi dated a princess of a faraway land called Sarasaland called Daisy.
I think that’s enough backstory. Onto the main story. This night, Mario was called away for a late night plumbing job. Luigi had the house all to himself, so he watched some t.v. and had some cookies and milk before hitting the sack on the chair. The t.v. had a color pattern on before it turned to static. The faint rustling of static woke Luigi up. “Hm?” he said in his nasal voice. “I was-a sure I-a turned it off.” He walked toward the t.v. before he thought he heard a voice over the static. It was very garbled, but it sounded like someone was trying to talk through the t.v. “Hm?” said Luigi as his hand moved toward the screen. All of a sudden, Professor E. Gadd’s face filled the screen.
“Luigi!” said the professor. Old habits kicked in for Luigi as he fell butt first on the floor and backed into the chair.
“Ow” said the younger of the affectionately named Super Mario Bros. Luigi wasn’t the bravest of all time; he still slept with a nightlight on.
“I need your help, sonny!” said Professor Gadd. “It’s an emergency! The ghosts have gone hostile!” He then noticed what Luigi was doing. “Ah…what are you doing on the floor?”
“Wondering how you’re-a in my t.v. and what you-a mean by ghosts-a going hostile,” said Luigi as he picked himself up.
“Never mind that,” said Professor Gadd. “I’m preparing the pixelator!”
“No, no, no!” said Luigi weakly. Whatever a pixelator was, it sounded dangerous. Luigi wanted no part in it.
“Hold still, young feller!” said Professor Gadd, not listening to Luigi’s objections. The t.v. screen suddenly turned into green static as Luigi tried to get away. “Here we goooo!” said the professor’s voice as Luigi was turned into tiny cubes and sucked into the t.v. screen and transported to the bunker in Evershade Valley.
