"KI-KI! KI-KI! KI-KI! KI-KI! KI-KI! KI-KI! KI-KI!" the crowd cheered wildly.
Wally smiled and took a deep breath:
"Coming into the ring is a girl you do NOT wanna tick off! She is known as 'Numbuh 8', the 'Master of Disaster', 'Little Big Girl', 'Countess Prank-U-Lot'....."
Kavey gave her teammate a weird look.
"Seriously? 'Countess Prank-U-Lot'?"
Kiki shrugged, "It sounded cool."
"Put your hands together for: Kikiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii <gasp, gasp gasp> Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaatriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick!"
The crowd went ballistic (in a good way). Kiki took the oppurtunity to preen: She waved at the crowd, did a little dance, and even spat on a picture of Ol' FangFace.
Then there was a deafening thunderclap. Everyone covered their ears.
Wally gulped. "A-a-a-a-nd now, coming to the ring, a-man-who-REALLY-doesn't-need-an- introduction-but-is-making-me-do-it-by-force....he's known as the 'Sultan of Sting' and other various nicknames...Olllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll' <gasp gasp> FaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaangFaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaceeeeeeeee!!!!"
The Count did a facepalm. That was NOT his name... Oh well, it wouldn't do much to worry about it now.
He turned to Kiki and bared his fangs.
She scoffed, "You're no scarier than Count Chocula." Her mouth started watering; A bowl of Count Chocula sounded REALLY good right about now.
"Aren't you gonna, y'know, vhine and vhimper just a LITTLE?" he asked.
Kiki bared her teeth. "Bite me, Snaggletooth."
His face turned red. He pointed a finger at her.
"YOU, little miss, are asking for it!"
Kiki smiled a Grinch-y smile and did what no kid should do: she opened her mouth and BIT the finger that was pointed in her face.
Everyone gasped....except Val. The look on her dad's face was priceless. She snatched Minerva's cell phone and took a picture.
Fangface was as red as a beet (his finger was even redder). He attempted to grab Kiki's collar, but she stopped him.
"Let's make a deal. If I win, you have to leave Sectors V and Q alone for a whole MONTH. No matter HOW bad we are! If YOU win, I'll....(sigh) do your job for a month."
"Deal." Both shook hands. Everyone gasped again.
"Kiki, are you nuts?!" Kacey yelped.
"Only slightly" she answered.
Numbuh 362 stepped in as the ref.
"All right, I want a good clean fight. No punches to the back of the head or the neck, no hitting below the belt...."
Kiki cursed under her breath. She REALLY wanted to kick him below the belt....he deserved it.
"You will listen to my instructions, go to the corner I tell you, blah blah blah. You guys gonna do this or what?"
Kiki smiled smugly and stuck her tounge out at the Count. The Count grinded his teeth. Both pounded their gloves together.
The bell dinged.
Kacey, Wally, and Megan each did a facepalm.
"She's a goner." Megan sighed.
"We're doomed." Kacey added.
"Might as well start looking for spank-proof underwear." Wally grumbled.
Both began circling the ring.
"You hit first." Kiki said politely.
The Count was surprised.
"That is the first time you've ever should a little politeness! I should let you-"
Before he could finish, Kiki went abso-bloody-lutely BALLISTIC. It was a good thing there were only 10 seconds left in the round, or else Fangface would've had to been hospitalized. When the bell rang, Kiki went back to her corner and handed Kacey something.
"Snaggletooth's...well, tooth. I want you to hold onto this. I need some extra cash, and I've already lost all my baby teeth. I'm using his tooth instead. The Tooth Fairy's gonna give me a TON for this."
The next several rounds went well. Kiki only had a couple cuts.....where as the Count had lost 3 teeth, had SEVERAL cuts, and even a black eye.
Numbuh 362 came over. "Kiki, listen..."
"Um, you're doing really well. But since the Count is close to hospitalization, we're gonna have to...you know....stop the fight early?"
She gasped. "I wanna go through all the rounds though!"
"I know, but if we go any longer, he's gonna end up in a coma."
"I WANT HIM IN A COMA!! HE'S PUT ME THROUGH SO MUCH CRAP THROUGHOUT THE YEARS!!" she yelled.
"Yeah, but if you DO, you could be charged with murder if he doesn't pull through."
Kiki thought for a minute.
"Fine. Can I at least get another tooth?"
The next morning, back at the treehouse, Kiki ran down the stairs yelling "SHE CAME! SHE CAME! SHE CAME!".
"Who came?" a sleepy Val asked.
"The Tooth Fairy! Look how much I got for your dad's teeth."
Val counted up the dollar bills and coins.
"$10.50!" she said all surprised. "Hmm...maybe I should knock out some of Daddy's teeth and get some cash."
"Nah. He'd go nuts on you."
Val pouted. Kiki handed her 4 dollars.
"Here. I'll save you the trouble. Consider this also as a thank-you gift." The little vampire gave her a HUGE hug.
Kacey walked into the room.
"Come on guys! We gotta go to the mall and pick out some gifts for Abby!"
Kiki groaned. She LOATHED not shopping for herself......
