Steele is a supposed bad guy.
Kaltag was laying on his bed watching the 32‚ÄĚ flat-screen TV in his room, when a newsflash came on.
‚ÄúFor the first time in forever, Steele is bad guy.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúPoop,‚ÄĚ Kaltag said.
‚ÄúHe is wanting to kill Star!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúCrap, not my brother!‚ÄĚ
Kaltag texted Star.
Kaltag: Dude, Steele wants to kill you!
There was no answer from Star.
‚ÄúCrap, he better not be dead!‚ÄĚ
Kaltag got to Star‚Äôs house to see him sleeping.
‚ÄúWake up, Sleeping Beauty! It‚Äôs 2:00 pm!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúOh, hey Kal‚Ä¶‚ÄĚ Star immediately fell asleep.
‚ÄúSTAR!‚ÄĚ Kaltag yelled to wake him up.
‚ÄúDude, Steele wants to kill you.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúOh cool, night, night.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúDude, it‚Äôs 2:00 pm!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúThat‚Äôs good‚Ä¶ for‚Ä¶ you.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúStar! Good luck.‚ÄĚ
Kaltag texted the dogs about Steele.
Kaltag: Dude, Steele might kill Star.
Kaltag: Yeah he might.
Kaltag: You won‚Äôt believe this.
Kaltag: Steele might kill Star!
Nikki: Are youse serious dere?
Kaltag: I have really bad news.
Kaltag: Steele‚Ä¶ He might kill Star.
Kaltag: Hey, girl, I have some bad news.
Kaltag: Steele might kill Star.
Jenna: Oh, Crap!
Kaltag tried Star‚Äôs house again. Star didn‚Äôt even wake up.
‚ÄúPoor dog. He might get assassinated.‚ÄĚ
Kaltag was driving home, when he bumped a police car.
‚ÄúAhh, crap. This hasn‚Äôt happened to me before. It happens to Star.‚ÄĚ
Kaltag got a police star. Within seconds Kaltag got out of the police radar net. But a police car nailed him, leaving him flying out of his car.
‚ÄúJesus, damn, hell, $%#@!‚ÄĚ
Kaltag slammed against a wall.
Kaltag got up perfectly fine, but a police officer came and pointed his gun at him. Kaltag ran away, and got shot. His health was on orange. He was slightly limping. Kaltag had 4 stars.
On the water, Kaltag saw an abandoned, out of date registered, speed boat sitting partially on the shore. Kaltag left Star‚Äôs police Charger, which Star let Kaltag use anytime, because he has a cheat for them, and got in the speedboat. He put it in full reverse throttle, to get off the shore, then sped forward. He was going literally 70 mph in that dual engine speedboat.
He was out of the net going nearly 80 mph, when he clipped a sailboat. Or that‚Äôs what it seemed like to the sailboat. To Kaltag‚Äôs speed boat, there was a giant hole in the boat, and it flipped over. Since it flipped it didn‚Äôt sink. To the sailboat, there was a dent and a small scratch, not too much.
Kaltag abandoned the boat, and swam ashore. He had lost the cops!
‚ÄúWait, where am I?‚ÄĚ
Kaltag looked to his left to see a sign that said, ‚ÄúNome, 20 miles south.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúDamn it! I need transportation. I need a cheat phone like Star, but only Verizon sells them.‚ÄĚ
Just then, a police car came to a stop.
‚ÄúPolice, get your hands in the air!‚ÄĚ
Kaltag‚Äôs health was low, and he can‚Äôt take the risk of being shot. The police got Kaltag and put him into the town jail.
In front of Kaltag‚Äôs cell, sat a sleeping police officer. The keys to the cell were hanging down out of his pocket. Kaltag grabbed the keys, and unlocked the cell door. Then, he tried to put the keys back, but the officer woke up.
‚ÄúEscape attempt, all hands on building three!‚ÄĚ
Kaltag took off. But up ahead two officers blocked the lane. Kaltag jumped enough to get height above the officers. When he landed, Kaltag slammed against the exit door. Luckily his health was restored by the cops, otherwise he would be incapacitated. He got up, opened the door, and around the corner, was a parked GTO that belongs to a cop when he‚Äôs not on duty.
Kaltag had an idea, but he didn‚Äôt have time. Instead, he elbowed the glass to make it break, got in, and hotwired it. His arm was bleeding, and there was glass in his arm, but he ignored it. He was at 3 stars, but he had to keep going.
He was out of the net, and away from the cops, when a news flash came on the radio.
‚ÄúI‚Äôm Paul Smith, reporting, a yellow Chinook on a four star wanted level, got away from the cops, but no one knows how. He also has a notched left ear.‚ÄĚ
Kaltag recognized the news.
‚ÄúAlso a dual engine speedboat was found upside down with a large hole in it. It is out of register date. We found a witness who was apparently driving a sailboat.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúIt all came at once,‚ÄĚ the elderly sailboat driver said, ‚ÄúThe speedboat going top speed rammed me. It flipped over, leaving my boat with only a few dents a scratches. I believe, in driver seat, was a yellow dog. I still am not sure why it was out of register date. It was an amazing event.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúAnd meanwhile, a prisoner escaped out of Snow County Jail. He is a yellow dog, appeared to be the Chinook that was on the run. He also, inspite him being a dog, stole a police man‚Äôs civilian black Pontiac GTO. We believe all of this was caused by that one Chinook with the four star wanted level. But no one knows. CNN reports.‚ÄĚ
Kaltag was listening to a rock station. After the news flash, was a Metallica song, ‚ÄúDisposable Heroes.‚ÄĚ
Kaltag got home, parked their new GTO in the garage, and went inside to see Tony pissed off.
‚ÄúA yellow Chinook, that got a 4 star wanted level, a yellow dog that crashed a speedboat into an elderly man‚Äôs sailboat, a Chinook that stole a black GTO! Kaltag, what the hell is this?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúI‚Äôll explain later, let me lay down.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúNo, you‚Äôll tell me what happened first!‚ÄĚ
Kaltag fell asleep.
‚ÄúOh, Kaltag, I can‚Äôt stay mad at you. I‚Äôll forgive you.‚ÄĚ
Tony kissed Kaltag, and went upstairs to get on the computer. Kaltag woke up to the smell of a pipe bomb. Tony ate it, then walked out. He exploded. He came back in and sat down.
Kaltag went to Star‚Äôs house to see him wide awake.
‚ÄúThank God, Star I have bad news.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúKaltag not right now, I‚Äôm trying to complete Halo Reach.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúNo, this is important!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúIt can‚Äôt be more important than completing Halo Reach!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúCrap, I was killed by a Chieftain!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúDude! You know what, I give up.
Star put on Metallica. He was listening to a song called ‚ÄúFade to Black.‚ÄĚ There is a line in it that says, ‚ÄúDeath greets me warm, and I guess I will just say goodbye.‚ÄĚ
Just then, Star felt a bullet go right through his head. Then, there was black out. Star felt his soul rise from his body, and up to heaven.
‚ÄúStar, are you done? I need to tell you before‚Ä¶‚ÄĚ
Kaltag saw Star‚Äôs dead body. He wasn‚Äôt sure whether to cry and dropped to Star‚Äôs body or run away and yell. He decided to cry. He cried his eyes out, his brother was dead!
‚ÄúStar, did youse here that gunshot dere?‚ÄĚ Nikki asked.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôs dead! That gunshot was a bullet that hit him!‚ÄĚ Kaltag replied crying.
‚ÄúKaltag, are youse ok?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúMy brother died!‚ÄĚ
Nikki seemed careless. But out of nowhere, he burst into tears.
‚ÄúI was such a jerk to him! Now I feel so bad!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúHoly crap! Star‚Äôs been shot dead!‚ÄĚ Balto said.
Balto was carrying a baseball bag.
‚ÄúBalto, what‚Äôs with the bag?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúOh, I play baseball.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYeah, oh my game will start in an hour. Bye.‚ÄĚ
Balto went to his boat.
‚ÄúThose fools, honestly thought I played baseball.‚ÄĚ
Balto pulled a sniper from the bag.
‚ÄúGood old Snipey.‚ÄĚ
Meanwhile, police were at Star house. Lars didn‚Äôt even know what happened yet. Ralph is standing there crying.
‚ÄúWhat kind of monster would do this!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúSteele!‚ÄĚ an officer said.
‚ÄúI am going too kill him!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúNo, we‚Äôll take care of it.‚ÄĚ
They went to Steele‚Äôs house.
‚ÄúSteele, you‚Äôre under arrest for the murder of Star Tyrant. Anything you say, can and will be held against you in court!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWait, I didn‚Äôt do it!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúI‚Äôm telling you, I didn‚Äôt do it!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYou killed Nikki and sent death threats to Star. Say nothing else.‚ÄĚ
In court 5 hours later, they had no proof, yet they were going to give him the death penalty.
‚ÄúI swear to God, I didn‚Äôt do it!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWhy should Steele get the death penalty if we have no proof.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúHe sent hundreds of death threats to Star!‚ÄĚ the judge said.
‚ÄúObjection!‚ÄĚ a man yelled just entering the door, ‚ÄúSteele is innocent! I‚Äôm G.E.O., gun expert officer, Tom Hernandez. I found this gun on Balto‚Äôs boat! It has his fingerprints all over it. No one else in the world has touched it.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúHow do you know it was Balto?‚ÄĚ the judge asked.
‚ÄúGood question, the bullet this very gun shoots, is the one that hit Star. I measured this with the hole in Star‚Äôs head. I also made a test shoot with this gun. I measured both bullets that had been shot. They were identical!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúHow do you know there isn‚Äôt more than one in Nome.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúOh, I forgot to mention, these guns are illegal in the state of Alaska. They‚Äôre also illegal in three other states, but that‚Äôs beside the point.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYou‚Äôre sure there‚Äôs no other guns like this in Nome.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúAlright. Steele has been charged for murder in the 1st degree, we have found the defendant innocent!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúAs for Balto, he is found guilty! He will be charged for the electric tomorrow.‚ÄĚ
Back at Kaltag‚Äôs house, Kaltag was laying on his bed with Jenna. Kaltag was crying fairly heavy.
‚ÄúJenna, why, why did this have to happen, why did he have to go?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúGod plans things. Just remember, he is happy up there.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúHey, I know what will make you feel better.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúI don‚Äôt think anything can.‚ÄĚ
Jenna got on top of Kaltag.
‚ÄúDon‚Äôt say that.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúJenna, what‚Äôs that awesome feeling I have?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúThat my friend, is‚Ä¶‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúJenna, oh, oh, how do you know this?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYou know, experience.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúI love you. This feels better than kissing you!‚ÄĚ
Tony came in.
‚ÄúAt least my dog‚Äôs happy.‚ÄĚ
Lars went to Ralph‚Äôs house.
‚ÄúMy favorite dog, he‚Äôs gone! I hate death. I‚Äôm scared of it again.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúLars, you don‚Äôt need to fear death.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúI don‚Äôt want to die.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúDidn‚Äôt Star get you over your fear of death?‚ÄĚ
The next day, Star‚Äôs funeral was at the same place Balto‚Äôs death penalty was.
Star‚Äôs funeral passed. The 3 saddest were Kaltag, Ralph, and Lars.
Next was Balto‚Äôs death penalty. For the funeral, Star‚Äôs casket was hiding the electric chair.
‚ÄúBalto, do you have any last words before you are electrocuted?‚ÄĚ a cop asked.
‚ÄúAlright, get on with it!‚ÄĚ
Metallica‚Äôs ‚ÄúRide the Lightning‚ÄĚ was playing. The last awesomeness Balto heard was the line, ‚ÄúPlease god help me! They‚Äôve come to take it all away! I don‚Äôt want to die!‚ÄĚ After that line, Balto felt electrocution. Then he felt his whole body catch on fire. With in seconds, he was loudly screaming. His whole body was on fire! The fir made it worse.
‚ÄúOfficer! You made the sponge wet, right?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúThere‚Äôs supposed to be a wet sponge on him!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWe can‚Äôt stop now, he‚Äôs screwed!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúMaybe it‚Äôs not too late. Maybe we can stop this, take out the fire, and put a wet sponge down!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúMost of his fir has been burnt off!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúSo we‚Äôre just going to leave him suffering?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWe have to.‚ÄĚ
About a minute later, Balto died, which seemed like forever to him.
‚ÄúI‚Äôll check his pulse,‚ÄĚ the officer that messed up said, ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs dead.‚ÄĚ
Balto took a look at his body, and anticipated going to hell. Instead he felt himself go up to Heaven. When he got to the gates of Heaven, he was confused.
‚ÄúHey, God. Why am I up here?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWondered why I put you through torture on the electric chair?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYou did that so I could be up here.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs similar to what happened with Jesus, but he did that for other souls, not just for his own though. He also suffered more.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúHey, don‚Äôt tell Star this, but I‚Äôm going to send you two back down tomorrow. It‚Äôs not something I‚Äôve done before do, but you will go back.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWill we come back up?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúAs long as you don‚Äôt kill anyone.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúDeal, what about Star?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúIf he goes to church next Sunday.‚ÄĚ
Balto wet to Star‚Äôs giant mansion in Heaven.
‚ÄúBalto, this is a dream come true, look how fast I can drum!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúThat‚Äôs cool, hey where‚Äôs my house?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYou don‚Äôt have a house.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWhat do I have?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúA yacht larger than any yacht I‚Äôve seen on Earth.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWhat am I doing with a yacht?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYou lived on a boat remember?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúAnd it‚Äôs as nice as this mansion, believe it or not.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúAre you serious?‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYeah, this is what Heaven is.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWhat else? This isn‚Äôt hell. Or Earth.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúOn Earth, you know what you lived on. In hell, you don‚Äôt even want to know.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúYou would be on a 9 foot rowboat made of straw that‚Äôs on fire!‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúWell, I better get to my new yacht now.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúOk, see you!‚ÄĚ
Back on Earth, Balto and Star‚Äôs bodies were buried next to each other.
‚ÄúThe death‚Äôs of both Star and Balto were tragic. Star was sniped, and Balto was burnt to death on the electric chair.‚ÄĚ
Kaltag and Tony went home, and laid down together. Both had a loss. Kaltag gripped Star‚Äôs cheat phone as tightly as possible. Tony and Kaltag fell asleep.
Balto and Star will come back on the next story.
