"Come on Toshiaki, throw the ball already!" Snapped Edgar impatiently, tapping his foot on the home plate.
"No, this pitch has to be perfect. I'll take as much time as I need to." Toshiaki squinted and pulled his arm back.
FLING! The ball hurtled towards home plate at record speed. Nassor raised his bat,
but unfortunately struck out as the ball whizzed past him and hit the fence.
"Good pitch!" Yelled Victor from the dugout.
"Better luck next time Nassor!"
"Hey Victor, why don't you bat!" Said Bob.
Victor shuddered at the thought. The last time he'd gone up to bat, his dog was hit and killed by a car,
so he'd generally grown to avoid it altogether after a while.
"Bob, do you even remember what happened to Victor in fourth grade?" Snarled Toshiaki.
"Yeah, he hit the winning pitch!"
"His dog was killed chasing the winning pitch, idiot. Why do you think he's sat out at almost every game in the past three years!?"
"I just thought he didn't want to play!"
As the two squabbled, Nassor

Weird Girl was in her bedroom in Toshiaki's ship, undressing and getting into her nightgown. She was just about to undo her corset when she heard a knock on the door.
Before she could react, the door flung open and Nassor came into the room.
She gasped and looked around for something to cover up her exposed part and saw her white bathrobe. She grabbed it and put it on quickly.
"Oh, its you Nassor," she said in relief.
Nassor saw her day clothes on the floor and blushed. "Forgive me for barging in like that, madam. I had no idea you were...."
Weird Girl blushed too and replied,"It's ok, Nassor. Now what did you come here for?"
Nassor shrugged, "You know, same as usual. Toshiaki keeps on coming into my bedroom, trying to get in bed with me. It's very, VERY annoying if you ask me. Anyways, I came here 'cuz its the only other bedroom on the ship." He brushed his hair back and shyly added,

Toshiaki looked up from his desk and asked, "What are you doing in here?"
"What do you think i'm doing?" Nassor shot back.
Toshiaki rolled his eyes and replied, "Oh right, you're gonna fix the window. Well carry on, Nassor."
Nassor went over to the window and began taking off the old shattered window. He wanted to hurry so he could see Weird Girl again.
Meanwhile, Weird Girl was just on her way to Toshiaki's office to inform him on the next upcoming New Holland gala. She was just opening the door to his office when she saw Nassor there. She cracked the door open a little and watched him work.
Toshiaki noticed Nassor's happy expression and that he was rushing through fixing the window. Toshiaki got up from his desk and went over to Nassor.
"Why are you so happy all of the sudden?"
Nassor told him, "So i'm happy. What's wrong with that?"
Toshiaki shrugged, "Oh, i'm just curious." A sly smile appeared on his face.

New Holland. It seemed like a nice town. Normal. Perfectly Normal. However, its residents were far from that. Take Victor Frankenstein for example:
While he might seem like your average, run-of-the-mill 13-year-old, he's actually quite the genius. Three years prior, he found a way to bring his dog Sparky back to life after an untimely passing.
Unfortunately, word got out of his "creation" and soon enough the townspeople were in a state of panic as monsters overran the Dutch Day festivities.
Eventually, with the help of a few classmates, Victor was able to stop the rampage entirely. Well, almost entirely.. It took the help of his dog to finish off the last creature, a Vampire Cat that had formerly been the pet of his classmate, Weird Girl.
After the "Incident", as it was later referred to, Victor made amends with Nassor, Toshiaki, and Bob, the students who used his blueprints to create their own monsters, eventually befriending the three of them.
That fall came and went, and

"I guess I have baseball practice after school so I wont be able to walk home

"That's okay, we can walk to and from school whenever you want. Maybe I'll
drop off my belongings and pick up Persephone and we can watch you at practice
and walk home together then." Elsa smiled softly.
"Really?" Victor perked up.
"Yeah, if you want maybe I can pick up Sparky too?" She asked.
"I do miss him..." Victor mumbled.
"Call your parents and tell them I'm going to pick up your dog and I'll see
you at practice." Elsa smiled and walked away.
"Great now Elsa's going to watch me suck at baseball," Victor thought out
loud as he walked to the front office

"I don't know."
"Well go do something!"
Toshiaki ran out to where Victor lay mangled on the road, cringing when he saw just how bloody the scene was.
"Victor?" Victor coughed for a moment then went still. He coughed. That's good..right?
Toshiaki had no idea what to do. He was experiencing the feelings of horror and disgust at the same time.
"Toshi, didn't you take that Emergency medical course over the summer?" Asked Nassor.
"Y-yeah-" D-don't look at the bod- V-victor .Don't look at Victor..
"Did they teach you how to check for broken bones?"
"Yes." To check for bones..I'd have to look at him ..I can't But if I don't....No. I have to.
Toshi knelt down and gently ran a hand over Victor's ribs. Three of them moved under his touch.
"Three ribs." He moved to check his pulse, picking up his wrist to find that it was also broken.
"Left wrist too." Toshiaki went ahead and checked Victor's pulse via his neck.
"We need to call an amb

While Edgar slept like a rock, Nassor lay awake, frustrated as the clock in the Frankensteins' living room struck Two o'clock in the morning. He didn't know whether it was because of his concern or just getting used to sleeping on the floor.
He quickly put aside the thought and rolled over, closing his eyes in an attempt to get some sleep.
All of a sudden, a small, warm hand rested itself on his shoulder.
"I've woken you up haven't I?" He whispered.
"No..I've been awake for about ten minutes." Toshiaki whispered, shifting onto his back on the couch.
"Don't be. It wasn't your fault."
"..I know…but I feel like this is."
Nassor rolled on to his stomach and turned his head towards Toshiaki.
"This. Victor getting hit by the car. I knew he was afraid of going across the street, and I knew I should have crossed it with him, but I didn't. I had that nagging fear in the back of my head that he'd freeze, but I just stood there and didn't do an

Toshiaki awoke to Nassor lightly shaking his shoulder.
"Nassor..What is it " He mumbled groggily.
"Excuse me. We're here to see Victor Frankenstein." Said a familiar voice.
"We're his parents." Toshiaki's eyes snapped open.
That was definitely Victor's dad.
"I'm afraid that your son's just gone into the OR. It says here that he was hit by a moving vehicle at 8:45 PM."
"Well is he gonna be okay?"
Toshiaki sat up fully when heard the third voice.
"Toshi? What are you guys doing here?"
"We came with Victor in the ambulance. What are you doing here?"
"She came with us." Explained Mrs. Frankenstein.
"When we got the call about Victor, we were next door at Mr. Bergermeister's house and Elsa insisted that she come to the hospital." Victor's father finished the sentence.
"Yeah. Uncle hung up the phone and had the decency to tell me, and I quote, 'Oh, Elsa, it seems that the boy next door you're so overly fond of was hit by a car.'"
"That was possibly the

Victor shook his head to snap himself out of his shocked trance and dropped the baseball bat, his helmet flying off as well as he rushed to the bases surrounding the field. Halfway to third base he heard a familiar bark and skidded to a stop, looking over at where the ball had landed on the street. His eyes widened in pure horror when he saw Sparky chasing after the ball as it rolled to the curb. Immediately Victor bolted towards his dog in a panic as Sparky simply picked up the baseball and began to trot over to his owner, unaware of the speeding car coming towards him. Victor spotted the car and picked up the pace, ignoring his parents shouts as they chased after him in an attempt to stop him. Without thinking of the consequences, Victor dived onto the street and pushed Sparky out of the way, a loud screech sounding out from the wheels of the car as it attempted to stop, followed by a sickening thud. Victor tumbled forward limply and the driver got out, rushing ov

Weird Girl and Elsa, who were just coming home from a fancy party that was hosted by a close friend of Weird Girl, were walking through the dark streets, exhausted from their party. They were both wearing fancy dresses and had corsets on underneath. Elsa wore a pretty dark blue long sleeve dress and had her wrench tucked into her leg strap. Weird Girl was wearing a white sleeveless dress with a black shawl and was walking with her umbrella-pistol.
The two ladies had no idea that they were being stalked by a mysterious man dressed in black.
The mysterious man was watching them from the rooftops of buildings, watching every step and every move they made. The man grinned under his mask and jumped down from the rooftop and landed about five feet from Elsa and Weird Girl
