The Secret Trio, chp. 11It took no time at all once the food had arrived for multiple ravenous teenagers to begin their feast. Maddie and Jack hadn't had so much as a surprised reaction at how much they could eat. They as parents had two teenagers, and one of which was a superhero with an incredibly fast metabolism.The Secret Trio, chp. 11 by *SarahJuneBug
Danny's father looked at his son proudly as he dug into another piece of pizza. "He's growing up so fast. Danny's got the appetite of a Fenton. A regular chip off the old block." He said as he got up to reach for more food. He patted his son's back as he walked. The other teens snickered, and Danny blushed, but said nothing.
Jake swallowed a piece of pepperoni. "Hey, thanks for the food, Mr. and Mrs. F." he said with a smile. Maddie smiled back.
"Oh, it's no problem...your name was Jake, right?"
He nodded. "Yeah. Jacob Long, but I prefer Jake."
"No problem, Jake." Maddie said cheerfully. Jack turned his head and gave Jake, Spud, Trixie, Randy, and Howard a curious and friendly look.
The Secret Trio, chp. 10Randy, for the second time today, was fighting a herd of imps. It was annoying, tedious work, and he hated it. The small creatures were swift and scratched and bit, and they just kept coming. It was lunch hour; the first time they had attacked was just prior to first period, forcing an already groggy ninja to fight.The Secret Trio, chp. 10 by *SarahJuneBug
Most students had fled by now, screaming at the top of their lungs. The principal's car had already been smashed in combat, a few trees uprooted with dirt hanging in clumps from the base, a few broken windows; the usual. Only one student remained: Theresa Fowler.
Theresa had climbed up the only tree still firmly rooted, swatting at the final two little devils with her baton. They floated in front of her, trying to snap at her as she bonked one on the head with the baton as the other bit firmly down onto it. As Randy rushed forth to save her, his mind was riddled with thoughts, running becoming subconscious. Aside from the scamps, no students had been stanked, h
The Secret Trio, chp. 9As soon as Jake, Trixie, and Spud appeared back in Lao Shi's shop in New York City, they were set upon by Jake's grandfather. The elderly man had been waiting for them, staring intensely on the spot he knew they would appear. Immediately he walked over and stared up at them. "Trixie, Spud, you go home. Jake, you come with me. I need to speak with you."The Secret Trio, chp. 9 by *SarahJuneBug
"But they--" Jake was cut off.
"No buts. What I'm about to tell you is not confidential, but I'd rather speak to you in private before you relay any information. You can tell your friends all about it later as you see fit." he said firmly, giving a just as hard stare at Trixie and Spud. Although both of them looked a little insulted, they and Jake knew there would be no way to persuade Lao Shi otherwise. They bid the dragon master and student goodbye for the day and went promptly home.
Lao Shi turned the sign at the door from open to closed and began hastily walking to the backroom. "Come, come." he ushered. Jake followed obedientl
The Secret Trio, chp. 8"Danny, you're flying too close to Jake! Move over a foot! Randy, hasten that footwork! Mind your scarf! Jake, watch out for that--" BANG! "--hoop..."The Secret Trio, chp. 8 by *SarahJuneBug
Sam had been criticizing practice for the last half hour. All three had been flying (or jumping) through hoops, shooting projectiles like fire or ectoblasts, and avoiding attacks in the lab while trying to sync movement if possible or necessary to each other's safety. They had all stopped when Jake had crashed into a hoop. The other two boys went to his aid and changed back to normal. Jake transformed back into his human form, grunted, sat up, and grasped his head. Randy turned his head to Sam, who was standing a few feet away, arms crossed.
"Sam, can we please stop? I'm so tired..." he whined.
Sam shrugged, feeling a rare mercy. "Fine, take a break. Howard!"
As Trixie and Spud headed off to Jake, Danny and Randy came forward. Howard jumped and gave a frightened look at Sam. "Yes?"
