[In the Mushroom Kingdom]
“Alright guys, see ya.”
They waved good-bye to their friend as he disappeared. They turned, the towers of the castle peeking over the trees. They walked back towards it. When they reached it they smiled, the little town was quiet and peaceful. They felt happiness, they were back home, and their home was still there to greet them.
As the sun rose over the very tops of the castle the little town bustled with life and activity, in fact, the town didn’t seem so little anymore. The streets were filled with the clamoring of friendly chatter, mothers scolding, shop keepers advertising, and children’s laughter, yup, this was home.
As they walked down the dusty old dirt roads some Toads ran up to them, telling they about the new paved roads they’re going to be building instead of the dusty dirty dirt roads. They talked about other things for a few more moments, where they had been, what Bowser was up to, about Peach, and all around life.
The air was sweet, leaves danced in the air, littering the roads making them look better than they really were. It was fall, the season where it is chilly and holidays are celebrated. It was a happy time of year, it was the only time Bowser didn’t kidnap the princess, for he two enjoyed the festivities, in fact…the whole Mushroom World does!
[Mario’s view of things]
As I walked down the dirt roads of Toad Town I grew happier than I thought imaginable, Thanksgiving was around the corner, then Costume Night, then-the youngling’s personal favorite, Christmas. Everyone had a small little bounce in their steps, even Luigi! They were all talking about how the Thanksgiving feast would be great, everyone in the whole five kingdoms were going to be there…even Bowser….
“I still think it really isn’t a good idea to invite Bowser this year-or any year- he is the villain around here.” Luigi voiced.
“I know, but it’s the Princess’ decision, plus Bowser isn’t that cold hearted to ruin Thanksgiving for everyone just so he can kidnap her.” I replied.
“He’s a reptile he’s cold blooded for crying out loud!”
“Prince Peasley is gonna be there.”
“What? Really?! Oh, I mean cool, nice.” I laughed. “Not funny Mario.”
