Out of Hades and into Heaven (pt.4)The way it had turned out, Adeline Bellefleur had phoned the parents of Honey Lemon, Esai, Venus, Ramen, Sky Blossom, Swallow, Randy, Mechadactyl, Gadget, Sunny, Jeff, and Jim. Honey's parents had grounded Honey and Esai----one day in their rooms and one full week in the house. Ramen was grounded for two weeks and had to volunteer in the Sakura Hospital every weekend in the duration of that grounding. Venus, Sky Blossom, Swallow, and Gadget were also whipped by their parents with an extension cord (Sky Blossom and Gadget were whipped the hardest of the four girls, but not half, not even a quarter, as hard or as long as Telma had been, though!) and grounded for two weeks. Randy and Mechadactyl were prohibited from seeing each other for the remainder of the week. (Of course, Randy and Mechy saw each other at school, and was going to see each other elsewhere, by hook or by crook!) Sunny, Jeff, and Jim were grounded for a week, which meant that the Yu-Gi-Oh

I remember those words....the moment....the day we celebrated a special day in my life....my parents' lives....and those of Paniaguas.....why did it have to be destroyed?
Back in Mexico, where Cristina and Jaime Panigua (and coincidentially, Shuichi and Miu Hamada) were celebrating
Haunted (pt.4)Back in the Ketsueki Shrine, Hook and Slugworth, large bags under their arms, burst inside. Slugworth was complaining about how long it took for them to get costumes.
“Can you believe how packed Party City was?” Hook asked. “People were losing their minds to get their retro costumes!”
“Well, seeing’s how Dale Nguyen Reeves is going to be at the party, it is easy to understand their euphoria,” Slugworth noted.
“Dale Nguyen Reeves?” Hook’s eyes widened. “You’re kidding, right? The Vietnamese-German gentleman from Chelsea, Michigan, who looks like Kokichi Ouma from Danganronpa V3?”
“There’s only one, Hook,” Slugworth said. “Man, many kids, especially girls, lose their minds over that man.”
Suddenly, a voice boomed, “You’d better focus, or the only things you guys will be losing are your jobs and manhood!”
Hook and Slugworth turned around. The large, hulking
