Jester Note 5 Sleep Over buddies ------------------------------
“Minions! Come towards my fabulous voice!”
We all look up to the Captain from our recent base. The sun was setting and night was coming quickly, and everyone was exhausted from today. Well all expected Pilot who jumps to his two feet at the Captain’s order and salute to him.
“We are already here Captain.” said Engie. He was working on a broken calculator, out of boredom I supposed. Captain ignores Engie and said:
“Photoshop needs a walk before nightfall! Her daily walks are two times a day!”
“But it’s getting dark.” Snippy mumble from his spot, he was trying to sleep.
“Nonsense! Zee sun has not yet set! Photoshop needs her walk!”
“Oh oh! Captain! May I walk her?” Pilot began jumping crazy with his hands in the air.
Snippy mumble angrily and got up. Snippy is most likely going because he is the only one with a gun and the only one who can use a gun. A real gun. And he would have to go with Pilot to protect him from doing stupid things, or at least TRY to prevent Pilot from doing stupid things.
“Ah Pilot! Yes you shall walk Photoshop! Snippy and Engie shall amuse me by burning the wood. Ms. Jester! You shall protect Pilot and my Photoshop.” Captain said.
My pencil lead snaps, my eyes widen. The room went quite. Snippy suddenly was wide awake and Engie stop tinkering with the calculator.
“What!?” both me and Pilot said.
“Captain, Jester can’t protect Pilot in the night!” Snippy suddenly got up, no longer sleepy.
“Nonsense! Ms. Jester can take down zee enemies with her amazing pencil.”
I glance at my pencil; I sudden felt an urge to throw up. “Captain, please I don’t think I can go. Tomorrow would be better. It won’t be so dark and the chances of getting attack are slimmer.” I spoke.
Captain looks at me. I don’t know what expression he was giving but I suddenly got a chill running down my spine. “You dare question your Captain?”
I think first, then slowly said: “Nooooo….?”
“Good! This mission is important! Perform my mission! DANCE MEIN MINION!”
Captain sips his tea. I look at Pilot; I really don’t want to go with him. I could already tell he didn’t like this mission but he didn’t complain to his Captain like a good minion does.
“But Captain I don’t have a gun.” I protest.
“You shall perform this mission or else I’ll revoke you of your scribble privileges, and you shall be lower to the rank of cleaning wrench. “
“I’m going!” I sat up quickly and stood next to Pilot. I can already sense his angry glare.
“It’s too dangerous for them to go without a gun!” Snippy argued. Engie went back to his calculator but I could see him glancing back at us.
“Zee amazing pencil has proving et self a worthy weapon Mr. Snippy, now come and find wood for your Captain!”
“Jester can’t protect herself! She and Pilot are going to get hurt!”
My eye twitch for some reason. I know Snippy is following the pink trust treaty deal, but why is he acting like I am walking disaster? I am not like Pilot. Just keep cool Jester it is not because you’re a girl, it just that a pencil cannot take down an army. Snippy is just thinking about truths of reality.
“Are you saying Ms. Jester cannot defend heer-self from ze harsh wilderness of zee outdoors?”
“Yes! She has no combat skills!” Snippy said a little too quickly.
“Now wait a dang minute Snippy!” I shouted. Snippy back up as I walk towards him with my finger waving at his face, Engie began to chuckle. “I have been surviving alone for a long time. So I believe I am capable of protecting Pilot and Photoshop!”
“With a pencil?” He asks.
“With a pencil!” I said angrily. “Just watch me mop the floor with this mission and bring Photoshop and Pilot back home safely!”
“Jester, don’t let your pride get in the way of how serious this mission is.” Snippy said angrily yet he was still backing away as I creep closely. “A pencil isn’t enough to take down an enemy.”
“I took down Engie.”
“I was off guard!” Engie pointed at me.
“Whatever!” I shouted. “Just watch Snippy! I can do this! Let’s go Pilot!”
I walk past Captain to grab Pilot’s arm and drag him outside. Snippy rub his eyes. “She going to get herself killed one of these days…” he mumbles.
“Why should you care?” Engie smirk. Snippy just glare at him.
“I don’t care!” D:<
“Then why are you arguing that she should stay?”
Snippy made an angry noise and walk out to catch up with Jester. Pilot was already attaching the big chain on Photoshop.
“Jester!” Snippy shouted
“Go away Snippy, were leaving.” I said. Snippy grab my hand and place a pocket knife.
“Just take this okay?” and with that he walk back to the building. I froze. I never hold something like this before. “I don’t need this!!” D:< I shouted at Snippy.
“Just take it!” D:< He shouts back.
“Come on Photoshop!” Pilot pull the collar, Photoshop obey and walk forward towards the empty wastes lands on the side the city.
“AH! Fine!!” I stomp off after Pilot. “Stupid Snippy, thinking I can’t protect myself. I’ll prove him wrong.”
Pilot looks at me. Photoshop is eating some garbage we happen to pass by during our walk and Pilot has spent the last few minutes trying to stop her.
“Stop it Photoshop! The Captain and I have a much better food for you to chomp at back at the base!”
He pulls on the chain, but Photoshop refuse to budge. She was enjoying her disgusting meal. At least she is willing to look past that part and have something to eat. But right now, just watching her eat this gross stuff is making me sick. Stomach…why…are…you…so weak!? XP
“What’s with Snippy and you? Are you two planning on something together?” Pilot asks suddenly.
“Huh?” That was a random question I never expect to hear out of Pilot, but then again it’s not a surprising question to hear from Pilot. “What do you mean?”
“Are you two planning to attack Captain?” He asks angrily.
“Where did you get that idea? We will never do that.”
Of course I am only speaking on my own behalf; I am not sure what Snippy thinks about all the time. Maybe sad and depressing things.
“You two are always together, always talking. Alone.” He said the last word slowly. “Why?”
I never had seen Pilot like this. He usually shouts his paranoid thoughts rather than whispering them.
“Well, were buddies?” I said simply. But that wasn’t a good enough answer for him.
“You two are planning to take Captain away from me aren’t you?” He said angrily. He lets go of the chain and walks towards me till we were face to face, destroying my personal space. I roll my eyes at him.
“Pilot you’re crazy, we are not planning to take your beloved Captain away from you. I am just saying that Snippy and I are just friends. We had been in the beginning. Well I don’t know if he knows were friends but I think were good friends.”
Pilot didn’t move from his position.
“You probably catch us in rare moments when we are together talking. We hardly have that now and then because of Captain, and because sometimes Snippy is in his “leave me alone” mood, which is usually all the time.” I laugh a little. “But I don’t mind, I like to be alone too.”
“You are lying!” He made a grab to my scarf but he stop when a sharp pencil was suddenly against his neck. He stops moving.
“Don’t touch my scarf Pilot.” I warn him.
He steps back. “Snippy always hates Captain, me and Engie. Why is that he is less angry with you? It doesn’t make sense. Is it because you’re a weak hat?”
I ignore the hat comment for now and thought about Pilot’s question. I remember watching Captain and his army from afar when I first found them. Snippy was angry all the time; he hates life and everyone in it and he looks like he just wants to drop dead right where he is, he wanted to give up. A man who’s will and hope is crush so many times. I didn’t want to imagine what kind of life Snippy had before the fallout. But the day when Snippy forces me to become part of Captain’s army… he seems little desperate. Maybe to avoid the tea punishment but he looks hopeful when he first saw me. After I settle in to the group Snippy still have his moments of wishing to drop dead, but when I sit next to him, even when I wasn’t going to say anything, he seems calmer, sometimes a little more chatty when I am with him. I guess Pilot and I do share the same question. Why is Snippy different around me?
I shrug my shoulders at Pilot’s question. “Maybe it is because I try to respect his feelings? Or something...”
Pilot look like he was about to say something but the ground shook. “What the-?” 0_0
The buildings around us started to shake a little. For every shake the windows crack, the dirt move, and the skeletons hop. The force seems to come from this pathway that was cover in smog. Photoshop stop eating and look ahead of us at that pathway, and without warning she screech in fear and run past us.
“Photoshop? Come back!” Pilot shouted and began to he ran after her. I didn’t follow them I continued to look at where Photoshop was staring. Few stomps later a big dark figure started to come into view and for every step it made it shook the ground. The creature was big as a bus and has two round scary red eyes.
It was enough to make me run like the wind after Pilot and Photoshop. The ground began to shake faster; I think it was chasing me. It was like a small earthquake. It was hard to run without trying to fall. Up ahead I saw Pilot still running after Photoshop trying to grab her chain.
“Pilot!! Don’t stop! RUN! Keep running!! But not to the base!” I shouted.
“Captain is the strongest! Captain will save us! To the base Photoshop!”
“NO!! All of our recent supplies are there! We can’t risk it!” I finally mange to catch up and was running beside Pilot. The creature behind us roar, the ground shook more.
“I don’t take orders from you!” D:<
“ARRGH!!” I made a frustrating noise and rub my head hard, angry. Just think like Pilot! Maybe then he’ll listen!
“Pilot! Captain wouldn’t want his supplies be destroyed by this monster right?”
Pilot gasp. “You are right! Photoshop! Don’t run to the base!” He grabs the chain to stop her but she was too strong. “TURN TURN!!”
I look behind me and what I saw almost made me trip. The creature was indeed big as a bus. It has two big beach ball eyes, big teeth, and ugly nose. It had a long lean neck, but a fat body with fin like feet. It looks like it can swim. It must have come on land looking for food.
“How can it even run that fast?!” I shouted. I then realized I was almost passing Photoshop. Photoshop was running too slow even for her and that was causing Pilot to run even slower. Oh no… Photoshop is going to get us killed.
The creature roar behind us, it was getting closer. Photoshop was screeching in fear, Pilot was trying to get her to go faster. Could it be the food that she had ate is making her go slower? Either way, if we don’t come up with a plan…*GULP* I don’t even want to think about it. In just a few seconds the monster got close behind Pilot; it try to chomp Pilot’s leg.
“AHH!” Pilot jumps out of the way just in time, but it was preparing for a second attack. I grab my pencil and ran to Pilot’s side, as the creature went for Pilot’s leg again; I aim for its eye.
“EAT THIS BEAST!!” D:<
Direct hit! The monster roars in rage and swing its head at us. Me, Pilot and Photoshop couldn’t get out of the way fast enough and in result the monster’s head pushes us off the road and down a hill. We all started to roll down the steep and never ending hill. As we near the bottom, I grab a pipe sticking out of the ground. It stops me from rolling; but sadly Pilot knocks into me and sent us both flying into the air.
Everything went slow-mode. Pilot and I were in the air flipping sideways, Photoshop roaring and rolling down the hill away from us and the monster that was behind us started to run down the hill where we had roll down from.
“YOOOUUUU SSLUUUUGGGG!!” Pilot yelled in slow-mo. I gave him a confused look as time sped up once more. Then we both fell into a deep black hole.
“OOFF!!!” My face hit the floor first and Pilot landed on top of me. “OW!” DX
“AGG!! GET OFF!” I yelled. Pilot ran off me and tries to climb the walls to reach the top but there were nothing to grab at, the top was too high up and the walls were made of smooth concrete so no foot holes can be made.
“PHOTOSHOP PHOTOSHOP!!” D:> Pilot cries. He franticly climbs the wall but he kept falling. I ran next to him and scream in frustration and wave my hands everywhere. There was nothing that was in sight that could help us get out. We hear Photoshop’s screeching outside of the hole. Pilot head snap up to the window of the hole we fell in from.
“PHOTOSHOP!! RUN! RUN LIKE A FISH!! FIND CAPTAIN!! GET HELP!! RUN!!” D:>
Photoshop’s screeching became more urgent as the monsters roar and footsteps were heard. I think it was chasing Photoshop right now. I felt sick to my stomach. We both stood by the wall hearing the noises of a scare Photoshop and the red eyes monster’s steps become quieter and quieter as they both ran further and further away from us.
When all was quite I gasp. I didn’t realize I was holding my breath. Place my hands on my knees; I try to calm my racing heart. I look up at Pilot and saw that he hadn’t moved yet. His hands were on the wall, clench into angry fists, and he was still looking out of the hole and into the cloudy black sky. He was slightly shaking. I reach forward slowly and gently touch his shoulder.
“It’s going to be okay.” I spoke softly.
Without warning he knocks my hand away and pushes me to the ground violently.
“ITS ALL YOU’RE FAULT YOU SLUG!!!” D:< Pilot shouts at me. I stare up at him from the floor. “PHOTOSHOP IS GOING TO GET HURT BECAUSE OF YOU! I CAN’T HELP HER BECAUSE YOU DRAG US INTO THIS TUB!! ITS ALL YOU’RE FAULT!!!” D:<
I dealt with Pilot’s rage before, but this…I never felt such anger inside of me, wanting to blow up before. I got up and push Pilot back. “MY FAULT?! I WAS JUST TRYING TO HELP YOU! HOW IS THIS MY FAULT?!”
“IF YOU DIDN’T STAB THE BUG’S EYE WE WOULDN’T BE HERE!”
“HE WAS GOING TO BITE YOUR LEG OFF IF I DIDN’T DO ANYTHING!!”
“I SHOULD HAVE NEVER LISTENED TO YOU, YOU SMALL UGLY SLUG!”
“I AM NOT A SLUG!!” I stomp the ground.
He points at me. “YES YOU ARE!! WHY DON’T YOU GO OFF AND DIE SO CAPTAIN AND I CAN LIVE TOGETHER IN HAPPINESS!”
“WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH ANY OF THIS?!” I wave my arms around crazy.
“YOU PLAN THIS!! YOU PLAN THIS!! I KNEW IT!! YOU ARE TYRING TO GET RID OF ME SO YOU CAN HAVE CAPTAIN TO YOURSELVE!! BUT NOT IF I CAN HELP IT!!!”
He suddenly attacks me and pins me to the ground, he send punches to my face. I scream and kick and eventually I stab him off of me with my pencil. We both started fighting on the floor, rolling everywhere, kicking, biting, punching, and yelling curse words.
If you were looking for adults, there was none in this sad hole. -------------------------
To Be Continued.... Will they survive the night?! D: Well duh! They have too right? But how? XD Stay tune for Part 2. :] Thanks for reading
I got the idea from another drawing. It was so funny. XD I look at the list and saw "More Minions" and this is what pop up in my head. Click the link to read Narukitty's comic "1 A.C (After Captain) [link]
Anyway, I am sure Snippy didn't want to waste his time trying to get something that doesn't exist, so sadly he drag/force my OC, Jester, into the picture. Poor poor Jester. XD Though I figure a person like Snippy wouldn't know the first thing in finding a unicorn for Zee Captain. I figure somehow Pilot will be able to accomplish that mission. I am a little scare of him right now. With that angry glare. XD
The quote Jester said is from Morihei Ueshiba. A famous martial artist and was the founder of Japanese martial art of aikido. Cool.
I had one more sleepless funny night Maybe, I'll do the whole idea, I had for this one. But later. Now I have much more important things to do. It's an art... about character, Zee Pilot, from 's Romantically apocalyptic comic) Guess, who am I? Go and read RA from the begining :3[link]
PILOT I TOLD YOU NEVER TO TOUCH IT B-BUT CAPTAIN I HAD TO RESCUE HER!
Maaan I was sitting on this drawing for months before I finally got around to finishing it XD but I'm glad I did, it was a lot of fun. YAY MUG. and also hurray for finally drawing Pilot. Sorry it took so long for that, bro!
