Everyone in Sector V (well, ALMOST everyone) was sleep-deprived and grumpy the next morning. Why? Well:
-Abby gave up her bed to Kacey after she got locked out of her room, so she ended up sleeping in the mission prep room.
-Valentina got scared in the middle of the night and went to get Wally to find out what the noise coming from down the hall was.
-Wally went to wake up Hoagie because HE got scared. The noise turned out to be one of the hamster's wheels were squeaking. So he had to spend the rest of the night oiling the wheels.
-Val got scared AGAIN and went into Kuki's bed for comfort. Little did she know that Val wasn't a sleeptalker....she was a sleep-spanker >.< Poor Kuki....
Kiki skipped into the kitchen. "Mornin'!" she chirped. Everyone glared at her. "Woah...never mind." Val creeped behind her and had half her face covered with a "cape" (the little blanket she slept with in the toy box). She then looked at Hoagie, who was eating a bowl of Rainbow Munchies. She stared at him. "Look deeply into my eyes....," she started. Hoagie immediatley fell into a trance.
Val continued and had her "cape" spread out, "You will OBEY my commands! You will give me your Rainbow Munchies....and....um....dance around like an idiot!" She snapped her fingers and he obeyed. Everyone lightened up and laughed.
"Dad teach you to do that?" Abby asked.
She nodded. "I guess I should turn him back to normal...." she snapped her fingers again, and Hoagie stopped dancing.
"Where's Minerva?" Kiki asked
"In the bathroom." Kacey sighed
"STILL?! It's been over an hour! I gotta take a shower."
"Well, you're gonna have to wait. I've got first dibs, then Abby's next, then I gotta force...um...help Wally with HIS shower."
Minerva strolled into the kitchen. Dry as the desert.
"WHAT were you doing in there?!"
Minerva scoffed, "Brushing my hair and teeth! Jeez!"
"For over an HOUR?!"
Kacey growled and lunged towards her. "You're such a brat! Why I oughta-"
"Kacey! Heal, girl, HEAL!" Abby yelled while she held the furious operative back. Just then the KND Help-Me Hotline went off. Kacey gave Minerva a death look "When I get my hands on you, I swear-"
"Guys come on, we've got an emergency at the playground!" Abby yelled.
"Who is it this time?" Kacey asked.
Abby gave Kiki a concerned look. She started shaking.
"Numbuhs 244 and 245, you guys stay here." Kacey ordered
"Why can't I stay with them!?" Kiki whined
"WHY do we have to stay here?" Val asked
"Um....because.... it's a very tough villain and after we defeat him...we're gonna pick you guys up a surprise!
Val's eyes grew really wide.
"We don't want to spoil the surprise now do we?"
She shook her head.
"Come ON!," Wally whined ,"We've got kids to save."
Kacey dragged Kiki out the door.
Minerva smiled evilly, "Hey Val...wanna go poke around the treehouse?"
She nodded and skipped off.
