Part 2 of NICOLE meeting Darkstorm
(In Freedom HQ)
Jack & Patricia: (cleaning & tidying up the place)
Jack: I don't know why, but I'm in the mood for barbeque, aren't you?
Patricia: Some cooked meat will be delicious.
(A rift opens)
Jack: Say, someone's here.
Patricia: Looks like Darkstorm & Josh have returned.
Josh: Not only me and Dark. My fellow Ancient Leaders have arrived as well.
Thomas, Jetris, Louie, Arthur, and Jameskie: (they arrive)
Thomas: Even as Josh's bestfriend, I still doubt that this Halfling he has befriended is friendly to the other Ancients...
Jetris: Long time no see, Jack and Patricia.
Arthur: It's been a while, you two.
Darkstorm: So Josh shall I buy you and the others a drink
Josh: Sure, why not?
Thomas: Yep... Although I'm in doubt yet... I need a confirmation.
Arthur: Thank you, but I'll pass. I'm kind of satisfied for now.
Jetris: Well, why should I refuse? It's a nice intention.
Jack: Patricia & I we're thinking about having barbeque to eat.
Patricia: Having cooked meat to eat.
Jack: Should we show you the demonstration?
Darkstorm: I never heard of barbeques
Darkstorm:(Leaves to get drinks)
SPARKY: (arrives as her holographic form) Greetings.
Josh: And who's that construct?
Achrillis: I am Achrillis, Darkstorm's Artificial Intelegence
Josh: Nice to meet you, Achrillis.
Meline: (had just entered the room, she just turned twelve a few days ago) Um... sup.
- Patricia: Greetings Achrillis.
SPARKY: Indeed. My name is SPARKY, Patricia's Artificial Intelligence.
Achrillis: I believe Meline had turned twelve?
Meline: Yeah... a couple of days ago. But I've been having these weird dreams since then...
Achrillis Maybe Darkstorm could help
Meline: I suppose...
Jack: Alright then. So what are we gonna do until then?
Patricia: Maybe we can go to the park & do some exercise.
Darkstorm: Returns with lots of Cola)
Darkstorm: hey there
Josh: H-Hey. That's a load of soda there. (gulps)
Darkstorm: (Chuckles) sorry
Meline: Uh... okay?
Meline: Hey. So, have you contacted my relatives, yet?
Darkstorm: Not yet
Meline: ("Gee... must have trouble)
Jack: Let's drink. (drinks a can of soda) Mmmm. Yummy & Fizzy.
Darkstorm:("I do not know their contacts Meline")
Meline: (Wait... how can you... read my thoughts?")
Meline: ("Oh.. cool.").
Meline: (annoyed) ("What?")
Darkstorm:("Its ok if you like hearing everyones thoughts)
Jack: (was a bit confused)
Patricia: (drinks a can of soda through a straw)
Josh: (sighs) ...'
Darkstorm:(Extends wings Yawning)
Meline: Well... what now?
Darkstorm: just tired
Josh: (drinks a can of soda) Memories..
Thomas: Hey, BTW! Jack & Patricia, can I help you cook the barbecue? I'm glad to help and I am going to demonstrate a new recipe that is STILL barbecue, but with a brand new style and flavor.
Darkstorm: (Still confused)
Jetris: Don't worry, Dark, you will know the taste of barbecue today.
Thomas: (to himself) ._.
Josh: Oh hey, that's a great idea, Thomas. I'ma looking forward to that awesome barbecue style.
Thomas: The barbecue thing...? Hey, t-thanks dude. Hehe.
Louie: Me too, I'm in!
Jack: Alright, let's do it.
Patricia: SPARKY, would you like to join us?
SPARKY: Sure, but do you think I should check on NICOLE, just in case?
Achrillis: NICOLE is a basic AI construct, I think she is fine
SPARKY: Ok, if your sure, then it would be a relief.
Jack: SPARKY tends to be very friendly with other AI Constructs than usual. Because she is very excited about other AI Constructs.
Josh: The obvious reason is she's an AI Construct, too.
Jetris: You have a point with that logic. But she's very friendly than usual.
Achrillis: I am a more Serious AI Construct
Louie: Ohh, a contrary to SPARKY.
Josh: Hm... Wait, I take back what I said. ...Isn't she an AI Construct, too? (sighs)
Jack: Yes. She likes to meet & greet her own kind.
SPARKY: Would you like me to help you with the barbeque too?
Jack: Sure thing.
SPARKY: Thank you. (helps Jack & Patricia cook the hot dogs perfectly)
Louie: Uh, y'know what? I query this "A.I. with Emotions" stuff. I didn't see any A.I. having emotions. Is she programmed to have those emotions?
Josh: Hm, I think so. You can ask Patricia 'bout that. Another thing that intrigues me, that--
A hedgedragon flies in, shouting "Hey guys!", as he sees the others. He then stopped flying and landed on the ground.
Josh: R-Rey?! Shocked to see you in this place, bro! Where have you been?
Rey: Strolling around, dude. I was about to come with you to celebrate.
Josh: Celebrate what? I didn't say that...
SPARKY: (waves hello) Hi Rey.
Rey: Hi SPARKY.
Louie: Nice to see ya, Rey.
Thomas: Howdy, Rey.
Arthur: Good to see you again, Rey.
Jetris: Yo, Rey.
Rey: H-Hey guys. Nice to meet ya again. (bows)
Darkstorm:(Gets up) A hybrid
Rey: Yeah, and that's who you're talking to, Rey the Hedgedragon. I'm an Ancient from AD and I belong to the Draconian species.
Darkstorm:(Puts a clawed hand on Rey's shoulder)
Thomas: Uhh... Dude, proceed with extreme caution.
Josh: Thomas, set the references aside.
Thomas: What reference? Didn't use one. (his eyes become keen for a moment)
Josh: Alright then..
Darkstorm: A brother Halfling, but not of Apocalian blood, my people are spreading (Something Klicks in his head) Your not Apocalian blood right, gotta be sure
Rey: Me, a Halfling? Nope. Halflings ARE Apocalians, not us Ancients that are hybrids. And to remind you, I'm a Draconian.
Darkstorm:(Chuckles) All Apocalians are Halflings, but not all Halflings are Apocalian.
Jack & Patricia: (holds out 2 plates of hot dogs & places them on top of a table)
Jack: Who's hungry?
Darkstorm:(Picks one up and sniffs)
Thomas: Me too, guys, but I'm going to grill first. (goes to the grill) Hmm... (brings out a box filled with beef cubes, bundle of BBQ sticks, box of sliced fruits, and a jar filled with black pepper and a brush knotted beside) Here goes. (skewers the beef cubes and sliced fruits and brushes them with black pepper) Nice. (grills the BBQ)
Darkstorm:(About to sneeze)
Josh: Uh, Dark, you okay? You need to cover your mouth and nose! (hands him a folded piece of 2-ply tissue paper)
He sneezes into his wing)
Josh: .......Oh. Okay. (keeps the tissue paper)
Darkstorm:(Growls, his throat glows to show on coming fire) GET DOWN!!!!
Josh: Everyone, duck! (ducks)
Thomas: Dang it! (ducks)
Darkstorm:(Breathes black flames)
Jetris: (ducks) That was close.
Louie: Whoa! (steps back) Black flames!
Arthur: (teleports to Louie) It seems you cannot absorb those kind of flames.
Louie: Yeah, it's full of darkness.
Louie: That's okay. It happens, bro.
Darkstorm:(Sits next to Meline)
Meline: (walks away)
Meline: ... (facepalms)
Darkstorm: Whats wrong
Jack & Patricia: (steps back)
SPARKY: (goes up to Rey)
Josh: Guys. What's with him that made you step back away?
Rey: SPARKY, fear not.
Louie: Darkstorm? Yep, I understand, dude. I guess it was my fault for saying that your flames were full of darkness. Well, I meant literally, not symbolically.
Darkstorm: I am a dark type, I take no offense to it
Jack: That's alright. Any ideas on what to do today?
Thomas: Aren't we going to eat the BBQ and the hotdogs? Hey, BTW, BBQ's ready. (puts the BBQ on a large plate and places the plate gently on the table, along with the BBQ sauce and the hotdogs) Bon appetit, everyone!
Darkstorm:(Sniffs the hotdogs)
Meline: (blushes in embarrassment) "Uh... sorry, I'm a vegan. I'll just make myself a fruit salad, if you don't mind..."
Patricia: It's ok to be a vegan, Meline.
Meline: (giggles) "I know, but always being surrounded by meat-eaters, occasionally I just don't feel like I fit in with the rest." (shrugs) "Anyway..." (grabs a variety of fruits, cutting them up)
Jack: Let's dig in. I'm starving. (starts eating the hot dog)
Patricia: Okie dokie. (places a bowl of fresh blueberries on the table)
Darkstorm:(Eats the hot dog)
Meline: (giggles) "So anyway..." (a large explosion is heard; she is knocked to the ground) "D-damn it... guys, I think it's another attack from Eggman!"
Jack: Man, he just never give up, does he?
Patricia: I believe this is the good time to stop him. Ready, SPARKY?
SPARKY: Yes, I am ready.
Darkstorm: Eggman, who is he?
Meline: "He's an evil scientist bent on conquering Mobius... we set out to stop him."
Darkstorm:(Extends his wrist blades)
Meline: (grabs her crossbow)
Darkstorm:(Remembers his lessons) Learn your enemy before attacking blindly
Badniks soon break in; Meline spindashes at one.
Dr. Robotnik: (walks into the base calmly) "Hohoho, look at what we have here..."
Meline: (growls) "Eggman..."
Dr. Robotnik: (sighs) "Oh, shut up. You know my name is Dr. Ivo Robotnik. But anyway..."
(his EggMech unloads multiple missles aiming at Sonic)
Jack: Not so fast Eggman!
Patricia: We're not letting you get away with this.
SPARKY: We have you outnumbered. Surrender or we will do this the hard way.
Dr. Robotnik: (scoffs) "Oh really?" (he sends in multitudes of Badniks in)
Darkstorm:(Arm charges up and fires Purple volts of lightning at Robotnik)
He is hit and knocked out of his EggMech, leaving him vulnerable.
Darkstorm:(Grabs Eggmans throat, eyes glowing)
(Suddendly a Jack 4 Bot comes by & punches at Darkstorm's face, trying to make him let go of Eggman)
Meline: (attacks it, growling)
Dark spits up blood
Darkstorm: Bad move (Looks at Eggman) Hey fat man the next time you plan to attack (Rips the head off) Make sure your man enough to come yourself
Jack-4 Bot: (got it's head ripped off)
Dr. EggPlankton: (appears in his Egg Pod) That's Dr. EggPlankton, get it right mister!
Jack: Dr. EggPlankton!
Dr. EggPlankton: Your right & who are you? (Points to Darkstorm)
Josh: ... I don't think I remember you with that memory of yours. Who ARE you and what are you doing here, you accursed protistic creature? (points at Dr. EggPlankton)
Darkstorm:(Picks up his combi-stick, the blades extend ) Best start getting out of here otherwise I will make sure I do not miss, and trust me, I never miss when it came down to throwing spears
Meline: (cracks her knuckles) "You guys want your eggs boiled or scrambled...?"
Darkstorm:(Whispers to Meline) Bad pun
Meline: (glares at him) "Hey, it's my first attempt..." (roundhouses a bot, destroying it)
(most of the bots are fully destroyed; Eggman proceeds to retreat)
Darkstorm: (Roars and extends his wings to its full length)
Eggman: (glares at the Freedom Fighters) "I'll be back, you primitive dogs..."
Darsktorm: If the Light does not claim you then the Darkness will devour your soul
Dr. EggPlankton: (is scanning Darkstorm & isintrigued about Darkstorm's capabilities & powers) Hmmm... Maybe he can be useful after all... The next time I meet these heroes. It's about time I use this monster to my advantage. (Leaves in the Chum Pod)
(End of episode)
Next Time on Darkstorm Muliversal:
The Darkness shall rise from its grave and our hero's must stop it from claiming Darktorm's soul
