Danny was on his way home, worried about whether or not he would get home on time. It had been months since everyone, other than Danny, Jazz, Sam, and Tucker, forgotten that Danny Fenton was Danny Phantom and that Vlad Masters was Vlad Plasmius. And that meant that Danny was back to his ten o'clock curfew. Danny was really tired from his long day at school and from fighting Ember and Technus.
Danny looked at his watch. "Crap. Looks like another lecture." But when he got home, his parents weren't at the door waiting for him to arrive. "Probably in the lab." He went downstairs to the lab. His parents weren't in there. He decided to check the living room and the kitchen. There was no sign of them anywhere in the house. He started to get worried. "Calm down, they're probably out." He assured himself. "I'll just call them." But when he called, there was no answer. He called a few more times. No answer. "Why aren't they answering?!" He had a bad feeling. He transformed into his phantom form. He looked everywhere around town. There wasn't a single trace of them anywhere. Then something hit him in the back, sending him into a wall. He groaned, clutching at his head. He turned and glared. "Fright Night." he growled.
"Phantom." Fright Night acknowledged. Danny looked at Fright Night. 'He was holding a bag. Probably a key to where my parents are' he thought. He clenched his fists. Green energy swirled around them.
"What are you doing here?! What did you do to my parents?!" He questioned, trying to keep his cool. Fright Night smiled.
"Is that why you think I am here? To hurt your family? I haven't crossed them recently." He answered. "And for why I am here, it's to deliver this into your gut!" He was pointing at the bag.
"What do you mean by that?!" Danny asked. His energy was ready to shield his body at seconds notice. But Fright Night already knew that. His plan was to fight Danny until he became too tired to fight. Then he'd finish his mission with the item.
"You'll find out. But when that happens, it'll be too late to stop me." He told Danny. He then shot lasers, from his eyes, at Danny, who barely put his shield up in time to stop it from hitting him. He then counterattacked with his Ghostly Wail. Fright Night teleported out of the way and appeared behind Danny, shooting his lasers again, successfully hitting Danny. Danny fell and groaned. He got back up only to be hit by the lasers again. Fright Night kept on hitting Danny with his laser eyes at lightning speed. Danny just couldn't keep up. It got to the point where he could barely stand.
"Please, stop..." He mumbled. He couldn't speak any louder because his entire body was in too much pain. Then everything went black as he blacked out. As he did, he turned back into his human form. Fright Night smiled.
"And now the item." He said. He opened the bag to reveal the Ghost King's crown. He fused it into an unconscious Danny Fenton. "There's no escape from fate, young prince."
