Abby had been clinging to the tree for the past several hours. About 3 hours earlier, the bear got tired of growling, roaring and being all around...um...bear-ish, and decided to take a nap. This gave her the chance to slowly climb down and make a run for it. She had quietly made it about 3/4 of the way down when Kuki skipped towards the big tree and shouted: "AAAAAAAAAAABBBBBBBBBYYY! Abby! Yoo-hoo, AaaaaaaAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaBbBbbbbbbbBBBBYYyy!!!" She cringed as the bear started waking up. Kuki merrily skipped to her teammate, and bombarded her with questions. "Where have you been? Why didn't you call sooner? Is that a bear?". The bear roared loudly. Abby began to run away, but Kuki grabbed her hair. "Hi Mr. Bear!!" she squealed. "Are you crazy, girl?! That thing tried to tear Numbuh 5 limb from limb and-" Kuki began to hush her. "I can handle this. I speak bear". She calmly walked up to the bear and began growling. Abby closed her eyes tightly, expecting to hear Kuki screaming. Instead, the bear quietly growled back. For about a minute, Kuki and the bear conversed. The bear then rolled onto it's back She turned to Abby. "He says: 'Can you take the thorn out of my paw?'". Abby started laughing, That's IT?!?!". The bear began to snarl, and Abby stopped laughing. She pulled with all her might and eventually got the thorn out. The bear looked relieved and walked up to Abby...and began licking her hand as a way of saying thanks. "I think he likes you!" Kuki giggled. The girls then recieved an SOS. From Kacey.
Kacey had been hanging on for about an hour. Help had better arrive soon.. her hands were getting sore. Just then, a seagull landed near the hand that was holding on to the saftey bar. "Shoo! Go away! Go bother Wally." The seagull looked at the bracelet she was wearing...the little beads looked like little bits of food. It threw it's head back as far as it could go, and pecked the crap out of her hand. The pain accidently made her let go of the bar... and began falling. She expected to hear a thump, but instead, she heard the roar of a jetpack. It was Abby. Kacey started crying, "Thank you thank you, thank you!!!!". When she landed, she began kissing the ground. Then the three girls heard a shrill scream. Coming from the far side of the carnival. It was Wally. When the three got there, he was curled up in a ball, shaking and crying. "Wally, calm down. You're fine." Kacey told him. "How can I? I got your and my candy stolen by 5 clowns! I even got Kuki's present stolen!." Kuki's eyes grew huge. "PRESENT?!?! WHERE DID THOSE CANDY-NAPPERS GO!?! When I find them I'm gonna kick their-". Then Kacey's KN-communicator went off. It was an SOS. From Megan. "Coordinates 7 Delta J lollipop..." she read, "That's the old haunted Johnson house! C'mon!"
Meanwhile, on the side of the carnival where the Skee- er- Shriekball game was, Kiki and Hoagie were counting up their tickets at the prize counter. "I want a 'Darling Dracula' Rainbow Monkey!" Kiki squealed. Hoagie whined, "But most of these are MY tickets! Why can't we split a prize?". Kiki snarled, "Because I'm older than you, I payed for the kajillion games YOU wanted to play, and I can spank you into next week! THAT'S WHY!!" Hoagie gave his furious partner the tickets. She giggled like a little schoolgirl and skipped ahead. Just then, Kiki's biggest fear(guess who) appeared right in front of her. She shrieked and ran behind Hoagie. "I told you to go punish any naughty childrens who were going pranking tonight!", the Count said, pretty peeved.
"We did." Hoagie replied.
"Then we got tired and decided to come to the carnival. I wanted some cotton candy and a prize." Kiki finished, smiling and squeezing her Rainbow Monkey. The Count smiled and giggled like a schoolgirl. He thought her toy was absolutley adorable "Can i hold the Rainbow Monkey? Pleeeeeeeeeeeease??" Kiki pulled back and snarled. "GET YOUR OWN!" she hissed. He ran and hid behind Hoagie. After he pulled himself together, he said, "Very well. Continue with your um...carnival-ing. But so help me, if ONE prankster goes unpunished, you two are gonna get it!" He then disapeered into the night. "What's HIS problem?" Kiki asked. Hoagie began to explain, but decided it wasn't worth it. "Come on. We've got some more work to do." She groaned, and took to the skies with her partner and Rainbow Monkey.
