And now for something that honestly could have been put up sooner! It is the rules of the RV!
1. Entry into the girl's room without permission will result in a massive face pounding.
2. Everyone will have a driving shift. Mega, while not old enough to drive, may be allowed to drive under extreme circumstances.

10. Never hesitate to admit the error of your ways, especially if you're under oath in federal court. We won't lie for you.
11. No talking to strangers, no matter how nice they may seem. You don't want to end up being used in a cult's blood ritual.

How many times has the RV been destroyed so far, by the way? :3
Love these new rules(except for number 2 revised)!
Since it's the end of an arc, it's time for another secret report!
Secret File #2
Report: Objective Status & Goals
-After continued surveillance new information on the target and her traveling companions have become available.
-New battle capabilities of each subject have been observed.
-Of the five, Codename: Mouse and Codename: Cat have shown the greatest use of power. Details outlined in secondary report.
-Codename: Dog and Target Codename: Bird have also shown increased battle abilities not shown before. These were not as powerful as the previous two subjects. Suggested that full abilities have yet to be shown. Further study is required.
-The "Random" subject, now Codename: Platypus, has also demonstrated a new ability. This ability was unable to be fully studied due to unknown nature of ability. Extensive study is needed.
-Identification of Secondary Group following Primary Group has been completed.
-Secondary Group shall now be known as "Nerd Group."
-The actions of Nerd Group have been deemed counterproductive to future goals regarding Primary Target: Bird.
-It has been deemed appropriate that Nerd Group be neutralized ASAP. Preperations for interception are currently underway.
-Initial aquisition of Codename: Dead-Eye has been deemed a failure.
-Further surveillance of Dead-Eye is needed, as another attempt at aquisition is required.
-Dead-Eye has aquired a new traveling companion from Bird.
Current Objective Status: Progression of Target aquisition has been deemed insufficient. Full capabilities of Target and traveling companions must be discerned. Plan to force subjects to use their abilities is currently in the early stage.
-Continued surveillence of Primary Group until plan can be enacted.
-Interception and neutralization of Nerd Group.
-Continued surveillance of Dead-Eye and traveling companion.
also not a bad set of rules.
Also I think I know why Skippy and Jippy want Mega....she has the power to make drawings come to life. Now think if someone forced her to make weapons.....who ever controls Mega....controls the world.

Mega: "I didn't know there was such a thing as the electric triangle."
M: "Tonight, we gamble with our lives!"
G: "Really? We're gonna gamble with our lives?"
M: "Well J's life anyway."
G: "Oh, well that's okay then." K nods in agreement.
J: "I hate you guys so much right now."
Xigbar: "I'll give credit where it's due. You actually got me to fight serious here!"
Lan: "I guess we can add the Amish to the list of people we ticked off."
G: "Pffffffft, Bah haaaa hah haaaaaaaaa! For.....for once I, pfffffft. This is probably....the first time I was brutally hurting someone, and NOT thinking about M while doing it!"
M: "Gah hahahahaaaaaa. I actually think my anger has subsided a little!"
J: "Pft, it...it has M?"
M: "Maybe! Let's keep destroying and see how it goes!"
K: *Rolling around on the ground in silent laughter*
The Amish....I got sued by them twice.
:D We get a million dollars, Xigbar tried to romance a lady, we gamble our lives, and Mite gets therapy? ;w; Awesome~ I wonder why the nerds are so happy. :3 It's good that they all get a good laugh together that might or might not involve us~
*o*Xigbar: "I'll give credit where it's due. You actually got me to fight serious here!"

*Rule modified after visit to Grand Canyon. Mega can't drive under any circumstance.
The "Random" subject, now Codename: Platypus
I keep delaying chapter 21, but when an idea pops into my head I just gotta go with it.
Public Service Announcement #1
Road Trip Bennefits
Mite: Hello everybody. I'm Mite, from the popular story KHi Road Trip, along with my friends.
KK: Hello everyone.
Mite: After 20 chapters we're about 1/3 of the way through the story! So I thought we'd do something a little special.
Gram: Couldn't we have just waited until after the next arc to do something? Then we'd be halfway done.
Lan: That actually makes more sense then doing it now.
Mega: I was hoping to move onto the next arc.
KK: Yeah, I want to have fun in Vegas!
Mite: Okay, because you all complained, the Nerds get to host the next segment!
-Everyone lets out a small groan.
Mite: Can we move onto the segment now?
Gram: This isn't gonna be like that chibi segment you did in OTI where you do it once, but then don't update the story for months is it?
Mite: Hey I've been busy! And I got story ideas for that! Now can we get on with this?
Mite: Good, now there are a lot of fun and interesting places to go to for a vacation. The only choice you have to make is how to get there. While flying is a popular means of travel, and a time saving one, we’d like to convince you that taking a road trip vacation is the way to go.
KK: There are some options for what vehicle you can use to travel in. The family car would be the first obvious choice, if it is spacious enough, or you could rent a campervan or the ever popular Recreational Vehicle (RV).
Lan: Hopefully your RV doesn't get wrecked like mine does.
Mite: A big point of interest would be pricing. Taking a road trip is obviously going to be cheaper than flying. From the get go you can plan out most of your expenditures for the trip, or at least don’t have to fear unplanned costs.
Gram: Airlines, however, are notorious for hidden costs that typically appear in the final tally of passenger tickets. More of the pesky expenses spring up again in the airplane itself. You won’t have to pay extra for a pillow, blanket or snacks if you bring them yourself. I keep a secret stash of supples under KK's bed.
KK: You what?!
Mega: But what if I want to bring a pet along?
Mite: That's a good question Mega. I think this can best be explained through a live example. Could you draw us a pet?
-Mega conjures a fluffy white puppy and cuddles it.
Mega: Aww, I love you so much Fluffy!
Mite: On a road trip you can just throw your dog or cat into the car with you! Now take the puppy Gram.
-Gram takes the puppy from Mega.
Mega: Wait, what are you gonna do with Fluffy?!
Mite: You see, airlines will charge passengers to stow Fluffy in a kennel on your flight. So it might be better to just not bring em along. Drop the puppy into magic hole.
-Gram drops puppy into magic black hole.
Mega: Noooo! Why did you do that?! I loved him so much!
Gram: Don't worry, I sent him somewhere nice.
-Fluffy appears on a beach next to Quackers, who is drinking out of a coconut.
Lan: Of course travelers must deal with eating arrangements. A well stocked cooler and stops at the numerous fast food joints along the way would save money. As compared to the meager menu selection your flight might have for a fee. Seriously though, airline food just sucks.
KK: When one considers the high cost of flying, coupled with fewer comforts and ever growing incidents of major flight delays, hitching a ride in the spacious minivan doesn’t seem so bad after all. Flight delays, hours on end waiting for a flight at a terminal, lost luggage and numerous other things can lessen your vacation experience.
Gram: Need to make it to gate 28 so you don't miss your flight at 7:30 in the morning? On the road time doesn’t matter as much. I could hit the road at 10:30a.m. if I wanted, and sleep in too!
Lan: But what if the idea of being stuck in a cramped space with my family for hours on end, sounds like hell on Earth?
Mega: Yeah, what if your parents fight over directions and the little one won't be quiet?
Mite: Both good questions! You see, you don't have to take a vacation with your family. Go with your best buds, your gal pals, or that special someone. Take in all the sites and expereince all that the open road has to offer.
KK: But the cost for a car to cruse the highways remains static no matter how much planning you put into it. There will still be downsides: Gas Prices, how many miles per gallen your vehicle gets, hotel expences, food expences, and many other things that could happen.
Mite: You might get left standing in a blizzard because your ride didn't pick you up.
Lan: Your RV might get destroyed multiple times.
KK: You might have to do farm work to pay back for some stuff you broke.
Mega: You might get chased around by a mean rooster.
Gram: Your friends might not let you keep that cow you found.
Mite: Your food might get stolen and used to pelt Star Wars Nerds.
Mega: You might get chased across the country by Star Wars Nerds.
Lan: You might get chased by Men In Black agents for kidnapping a minor.
Gram: You might watch your friend get attacked by dogs and then release a zoo full of animals after you shoot a house with paintballs.
Mite: You might fight on top of your RV and then get left behind for no good reason.
KK: You might be stuck under your RV having to fix it while it's still going down the raod.
Mega: Your GPS might not work.
Gram: The minor you kidnapped might drive your RV into the Grand Canyon.
Lan: You might have to fight MIB agents in the Grand Canyon.
Mega: You might bring a video game character to life to fight for you.
Mite: You might have to participate in a totally random quizz show.
KK: You might be forced to wear an outfit you don't want.
Lan: Your RV might get shot up by gang members.
Gram: Your house might get blown up while you're gone.
Mega: You might fall into the ocean because your jetpack ran out of gas.
KK: You might have to fight off a mob of crazy Twilight fans.
Mite: You might get slapped by a person in a Disney character costume.
Gram: You might find that your friend has gone crazy due to stress.
Lan: You might get your fake I.D. broke by a bouncer.
Mega: You might not be allowed to go to a night club because you're too young.
Gram: You might have to sneak into a night club.
KK: You might have to fight against a sexist Star Wars Nerd.
Mite: You might have to deal with long lines.
Gram: You might have to sneak past a security guard.
KK: You might have to pretend to be pregnant.
Lan: You might watch one friend attack another friend.
Mite: You might miss your convention.
KK: You might have to fight a mob of Star Wars fans.
Lan: You might get temporarily blinded.
Gram: You might restore a mute person's ability to speak.
Lan: You might have a great love torn away from you.
Mega: You might make some new friends along the way.
Mite: Whatever the reasons for or against it, we hope that you seriously consider taking a road trip for your next vacation.
Gram: Oh my gosh, why did we have to do that?
Mega: I miss the puppy!
Lan: How many times is my RV gonna get wrecked?
KK: Can we go to Vegas now? Mamma's feeling all kinds of lucky!
Mite: Well, glad to know this segment was worth it.
c:Mega: Your GPS might now work.
c:Mega: Your might fall into the ocean because your jetpack ran out of gas.
No, Fluffy! ;o; Come back! Now he's gone... to the same place Quackers went... I guess they're in a better place now...
X3 I liked this little announcement! :c But did you have to give the next one to them?
hahaha that was awesome :]
well it aint secret anymore.Gram: Airlines, however, are notorious for hidden costs that typically appear in the final tally of passenger tickets. More of the pesky expenses spring up again in the airplane itself. You won’t have to pay extra for a pillow, blanket or snacks if you bring them yourself. I keep a secret stash of supples under KK's bed.
...that duck is still totally boss~-Fluffy appears on a beach next to Quackers, who is drinking out of a coconut.
hahaha this...just hahah~KK: Can we go to Vegas now? Mamma's feeling all kinds of lucky!
lol Quakers you better not be being pulling that Home Alone Crap! X'D still hilarious to this day!Gram: Your house might get blown up while you're gone
I need a lovely assistant~ lol can still remember that, especially when Lan says "I'm flatter but uh" and Gram goes "No, not you! Let try this again".Mite: You might have to participate in a totally random quizz show.
Was some good times, good times indeed XD
Sergeant AntiMogI love Mite <3
And it's back! Okay, end-of-semester stuff took up too much time to update this, and then I just got lazy for a week. Now we can start the "Getting There Agian" arc. As a note, I'm giving the main group a break for a few chapters and shifting focus. Won't be hard to guess who after you read, or even guess now. I will have some smaller stuff for the main characters throughout their break though. I also want to give a special shoutout/thanks to KingdomKey who has agreed to provide another guest chapter(s) that will focus on the main group. I appreciate the time and effort she puts into those. Now back to the show, enjoy.
Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas
The RV was rolling down the highway with the sun high in sky above it. Lan was driving while Gram sat in the passenger’s seat, laid back with his feet up on the dashboard. Mega was sitting at the kitchen table drawing. Mite had been tied up and was laying on the couch while KK sat in a chair next to him, writing down on a notepad.
KK finished writing her notes and shifted toward Mite. “So Mite, how are you feeling today.” Mite turned his head away. “Now Mite, there’s no need to be like that. We’re just trying to help you.”
Mite turned back to look at KK. “I do not need therapy!”
“We’re kinda sure you do, bud.” Said Lan.
“Yeah, ya got the crazies, or something going on.” Said Gram.
“We’re just concerned.” Added KK. “You seem to think that Pluto is stalking you and trying to hurt you.”
“Because it’s true!” Shouted Mite. “You just never see him when he does it! He’s sneaky like that.”
“Riiiiiiiiiiiight.” KK waved for Mega to come over. “Look, Mega’s going to give an inkblot test for you to answer. Just say the first thing that pops into your head.”
Mega started to flip through her sketchbook. “Okay, I see Pluto. Now Pluto is being petted by someone. I think it’s……Kairi? Now it’s 4-year-old Kairi in a little princess dress. Kairi in a forest with cute animals, Kairi riding atop a giant fire-breathing duck? Wait, is that Kairi in space?”
“Huh?” KK looked over at Mega’s book to see the Kairi drawings. “Mega! You were supposed to do the inkblot test!”
Mega flipped to another page. “Well I wanted feedback on my pictures. I worked very hard on them, and I want to know what everyone thinks!”
KK got up from her chair, grabbed the sketchbook and tried to pull itaway. “No Mega! You have to do the test right, or we won’t be able to help Mite!”
Mega pulled back with all her might. “No! They have to tell me how pretty Kairi looks!”
Gram leaned out from his seat to look back. “Ya know we could always try a slap therapy session to help Mite. I really think it would work.”
Mite jumped up on the couch and shot Gram an angry look. “Hey, don’t go blurting out ideas like that!”
KK and Mega continued to fight over the sketchbook. “Give it to me!” Shouted KK.
“Never!” Repleid Mega. With one more pull KK yanked the sketchbook away, but let it slip out of her hand which sent it flying. “Not my sketchbook!” Shouted Mega.
The sketchbook flew right at Mite’s head. “Oh crud.” The book flew straight and true, hitting its target in an instant.
Mega jolted up on the couch and rubbed the sleep out of her eyes. “That was an odd dream.” She then took a quick look around the RV. KK was driving, Gram was in the passenger’s seat, and Mite and Lan were sitting at the kitchen table.
Lan looked over at Mega. “Have a good nap Mega?”
“I’m not sure yet. How long was I out?”
“About 45 minutes, give or take.” Said Mite.
“So where are we then?”
“Well we should be just about at-”
“We’re entering Las Vegas.” Said Gram.
“Okay, but why are we going to Las Vegas?” Asked Mite, now slightly annoyed. “We weren’t scheduled to make any stops on our way to New York.”
“Hey don’t blame me.” Said Gram pointing to the driver’s seat. “It was KK’s idea.”
“Any particular reason we’re going to Vegas, KK?” Asked Lan.
KK’s grip on the steering wheel tightened. “Because I’m determined to have a good time on this trip! Where we aren’t being hunted down, caught in explosions, attacked by a mob or any of that stuff!”
“Ya know, Las Vegas isn’t exactly the poster child for avoiding trouble.” Said Mite. “There’s probably a better place to go then there.”
“Well there’s another reason for going there.”
“What’s that?” Asked Mega.
“Mama’s feeling lucky tonight!” KK slammed her foot on the accelerator and the RV sped away.
~Five minutes later~
The RV jolted to a stop in a Vegas Parking lot. Mite came flying to the front of the RV and smashed into the window and stuck there. He pulled his headback and stared at KK. “That was the third worst driving I’ve ever seen.”
“Only third worst?” Asked Gram.
Mite fell down from the window with a thud, and then pointed to the right side of the window. “It was probably worse for that owl that got hit.” Spread out over the window, the owl could be seen slightly twitching along with its eyes roaming around. After a moment the owl peeled off the window with a small “hoot.”
“So now that we’re here, what do we do?” Asked Mite.
“Isn’t it obvious?” Asked KK as she got up out of the driver’s seat.
“We have fun,” shouted Lan in excitement, “and gamble like there’s no tomorrow!”
“There’s one problem with that.” Said Mite with a serious look on his face.
“And what would that be Mr. Killjoy?” Asked Gram.
“The fact that there are underage people here who can’t gamble.” Everyone looked at Mega.
Mega took a step back. “Y-you’re going to leave me behind again, aren’t you?!”
“That’s kinda the position we’re in right now Mega.” Said KK.
“No! I won’t be left out of the fun again!” Mega opened her sketchbookand a giant fist popped out to punch the RV door open. “For freedom!” Shouted Mega as she ran out of the RV.
Everyone else looked out of the busted RV door. “Well she’s gonna havea good time.” Said Gram with a smirk on his face.
“Well that’s not a good thing!” Said Mite in protest.
“Oh I’m sure she’ll be fine.” Said Lan. “We can let her have some fun, and it’s not like we can’t go out and have some fun too while we look for her.”
Mite looked at him with an annoyed look. “Yeah, but you’re not old enough to gamble here either.”
Lan stared back for a moment and then raised his sword over his head. With a mighty shout he yelled, “For Freedom!” and ran out of the RV.
The remaining three watched as Lan bolted away from the RV at topspeed. “Well I guess he’s out to have a good time too then.” Said KK in slight amusement.
“Oh yeah?” Asked Mite. “And are you by chance old enough to gamble here, KK?”
KK started fidgeting nervously. “Uh, well I’m…” She then took out herstaff and tapped it on the floor quickly. “For the Money!” She shouted as a large smokescreen erupted in the RV.
Mite and Gram stumbled out of the smoke filled RV. “Well good job,” said Gram, “now we got those three running around the streets of Las Vegas unsupervised.”
Mite looked over at Gram. “You’re concerned for their safety, aren’t you?”
“Nah,” pouted Gram, “I wanted to join them.”
“Do I even need to ask if you’re old enough to gamble?”
Gram looked back with a straight face. “I’m 38 dude.” Mite stared back with one eye twitching. “Hey, stop winking at me. It’s creepy.”
~20 minutes later~
After walking around the Las Vegas Strip for a while Mite and Gram stopped at a hotel/casino.
“Wait a second!” Shouted Gram as they stopped in front of the building.
“What is it?” Asked Mite.
“My Gram-Sense is tingling.”
“Your…“Gram-Sense” is tingling?”
“Yes! And it’s telling me that we should go into this hotel and casino.”
“Because you want to gamble right?”
“Oh, is it because you can sense our friends in there?” Asked Mite hopfully.
“No. It’s because a hotel big enough to also be a casino is sure to have a huge buffet for me to eat at.”
Mites face quickly went back to neutral and then to annoyed. “Then that’s not “Gram-Sense!” That’s your stomach saying you’re hungry!”
“Glad you understand. See ya!” Gram walked into the building leaving Mite behind.
The eye twitching had now become more prominent for Mite. “Well…..I could try and drink my troubles away. But Mickey Mouse delving into alcoholism might send the wrong message to the children of Las Vegas. So I think I’ll hit the slot machines instead!” Mite then ran into the building.
The casino itself was quite large. Mite walked around for a few minutes before finding the rows of slot machines. “Alright then, time to start losing some money!” Mite walked up to a slot machine and reached into his pocket fors ome money. Before he could bring out his cash, Mite felt as a person bumped into his back. He looked back to see the familiar face of Mega. “Mega!”
“Oh, hi Mite.” She replied sheepishly. “How are you?”
“Oh not bad, could be better though.” He said somewhat sarcastically.“Decided to develop a gambling habit, oh and I was looking for you!”
“Hehe, yeah. Sorry about that. But come on, Mite! I didn’t want to be left out of all the fun this time.”
“Didn’t know eating supper with me was such a dreadful experience.”
“Oh don’t be like that.” Mega was now eyeing the slot machines. “Hey, if ya let me play one of those machines then I won’t cause any more trouble.”She then put on her “please” face.
Mite pulled out the necessary funds and gave them to Mega with a sigh. “Fine, but just one round of underage gambling for you, and that’s it!”
“Hooray!” Mega ran over to the machine and quickly pulled down on the lever, and the slots started spinning.
“Now Mega you shouldn’t get your hopes up. The odds of winning on any of these machines, especially on your first time, is astronomical at-”
The slot machine started lighting up as loud bells and whistles rang out; the three slots had all landed on Lucky 7. “I won!” Shouted Mega with glee. “Yay!”
Mite stared with his jaw wide open. “Okay, sure. Why the hell not?! Somebody point me to the nearest bar!”
A while later Mega and Mite were standing around in the front lobby.
“But Miiiiiiiiiiiiiite, why can’t I keep the money?” Asked Mega.
“Beeeeecaaaauuusssseeeee Mega, if they knew you had won then they would have taken the money back. So I had to claim it.”
“It’s not fair.” She pouted.
“Oh believe me, there’s a lot of things that aren’t fair in this world,Mega. But this isn’t-” At that moment a table and four chairs went flying overhead and crashing into a nearby wall. “So….who do think it is, friend or nerd?”
“Hmm, I’m gonna go with Lan.”
Lan and KK came walking from the other side of the lobby. “Hey guys!” Said KK as she waved to them.
Lan had a slight scowl on his face. “Stinkin dirty cheaters.” He mumbled as the four gathered.
“Having some trouble Lan?” Asked Mite
“Lan and I were at the blackjack table,” said KK, “and there wasn’t a whole lot of winning going on.”
“They’re a bunch of dirty cheaters here!” Said Lan angerly.
“Well it’s Vegas, Lan,” Said Mite, “the House always wins. That’s no reason to throw furniture around though.”
“Oh that wasn’t me, that was KK.” Said Lan calmly as he pointed to KK.
“You threw that stuff KK?” Asked Mega.
“Well, yeah I kinda did. But it’s not my fault!” She said in frustration. “They’re a bunch of dirty cheaters here!”
Mite just rolled his eyes. “Ya know, if Gram were here then I could tell everyone the good news.”
“What good news?” Asked Gram who suddenly appeared next to everybody.
“Oh hey Gram.” Said Mite.
“Aww, none of you freaked out when I suddenly appeared.”
“Maybe it’s because we’re used to you now.” Said Lan.
“Now that’s not very fun. Now I’m gonna have to come up with brand new ways to try and freak you guys out.”
“Please don’t.” Said Mite.
“The challenge has been accepted!” Shouted Gram with confidence.
Mite took a closer look at Gram. “Hey Gram, you have shrimp and an omelet hanging off of your man-skirt.”
Gram leaned in to whisper to Mite. “That buffet was crazy, dude.”
Mite pushed him away. “Okay I need some space.” Everyone was now waiting to hear what Mite’s news was. “Now I have some good news. We won $1 million dollars!”
“We won a million dollars?!” Shouted KK in shock and excitement.
“That’s incredible!” Said Lan.
“How’d you even mange that?” Asked Gram.
“I won it!” Said Mega.
Gram walked over to Mite and slapped him across the face. “You let an underage minor gamble! You’re a horrible role model!”
Mite stepped back and rubbed his cheek. “Funny, cause I was kinda going for that actually! Anyway, I claimed the money since Mega couldn’t and I think the best thing to do is split it evenly amongst us all, 20 grand each.”
“Sounds like a plan to me!” Said Lan.
“What should we do with the money?” Asked KK as the possibilities flew through her mind.
“Well,” began Mite, “the smart thing to do would be to invest it all in a low risk-”
“That’s not fun dude!” Protested Lan.
“Yeah,” agreed Gram, “I say we tear up the city and just waste it all!”
“I like it!” Said KK.
“Think I could buy a pony, no wait, a tiger?!” Asked Mega as everybody, but Mite started exiting the building.
Mite just stood around for a few moments. “Well……..cheese and fine wine for me! Or booze and lottery tickets, but the night is still early.”
~Three Hours Later~
Everyone was sitting in the main lounge of a luxury suite of a very high-end hotel on the Vegas Strip. Gram was pretending to play the piano that was in the room while everyone else watched the large television. Most of the room had been damaged greatly.
“Anyone got any money left?” Asked Lan as he threw a vase behind him.
“Do hot sauce packets count?”
“I got nothing.”
“Then I think we set out what we accomplished to do.” Said Lan satisfied.
“Which was what again?” Asked Mite.
At that moment the hotel manager entered the room. He was a tall, thin man with short grey, almost silver hair. “Excuse me,” he took a moment to survey the room, “my……fine guests. There is a matter in which I must speak with you.”
Mite walked up to the manager. “Yes, what is it?”
The manager took out a sheet of paper. “It would appear that the money you used to pay for this room has been seized by the Nevada Gaming Commission.”
“It was?! But why did they take it?”
“They have on video surveillance, that girl over there,” pointing at Mega, “who is clearly not of legal gambling age, playing at the slot machines.This makes all winnings obtained from that machine unusable and must be returned in full.” A light fixture then fell from the ceiling in a loud crash. “The property damage will be added to your room bill which must now be paid in full.”
“Oh, uh…okay then. Just give us a moment.” Mite ran over to the rest of the group who huddled around Gram at the Piano.
“Well now what do we do?” Asked Lan.
“I’m kinda scared.” Said Mega. “Can I go to jail for this?”
“In all likelihood, yes.” Said KK. “You will rot in prison for a very long time.”
“Wow, that’s kinda not what I’d expect you to say KK.” Said Gram.
“Well it’s not like Mega’s the only one.” Said Mite. “We all used that money, so we’re all liable if it doesn’t get paid back.”
“Then there’s only one course of action left to use.” Said Lan. He then walked out into the middle of the room and turned to face the large window looking out across Las Vegas. “We run for it!” At that moment Lan ran at full speed and crashed through the window, falling down to the city streets below.
Everyone else just looked on in shock. “B-but,” sputtered Mite, “but we’re on the 60th floor!”
“I like his style!” Proclaimed Gram. “Let’s move it!” From his seat Gram jumped up and ran through the unbroken window.
“This is madness!” Shouted Mite while holding his head in shock.
“Let’s go Mega!” Said KK as she pulled Mega along by the hand.
“Wait, wait!” Protested Mega. “At least let me draw a parachute first, or a magic flying unicorn!” Both of them leaped out of the broken windows.
Mite continued to stare out in disbelief. “Oh hell no! I’m taking the elevator!” He then turned around to see armed police officers standing at the door by the hotel manager, with their weapons pointed at him. “Or ya know, I could just take a nice little plummet to my death.” Mite ran off toward the windows as bullets flew past him, and leapt out as fast as he could.
Gram, KK and Mega were standing around the outer ring of a small crater in the city street. In the center of the crater lay Lan.
“Do you think he’s okay?” Asked Mega with a worried look on her face.
“Maybe.” Said Gram. “We’re in Vegas, so we could put bets on whether he’s alive or not.”
“What kind of odds are we talking about?” Asked KK.
Shakily, Lan raised himself up from the crater. “Okay, I’m good here. Coulda used some help, but I’m good.”
“I think we’ve worn out our welcome here.” Said Mega.
“I agree.” Said KK. “We should probably get back on the road.”
“Well let’s head out then.” Said Gram pointing behind him. “The RV is just across the street.”
“Hey, where’s Mite?” Asked Lan.
A scream could be heard, getting steadily louder until a large crash was heard across the street. From where everyone was standing they could see Mite’s legs sticking out of the top of the RV.
“There he is.” Said Gram. “Guess we can leave now.” Everyone piled into the RV, and started again on their trip the New York.
~One Block Away~
A dark portal opened on the corner of a city street. Xigbar and theMoogle walked out and looked around at their surroundings.
Xigbar took a deep breath and let out a loud exhale. “Ahh, good ol’ LasVegas! I missed this place.”
“You’ve been here before, kupo?” Asked The Moogle as looked at the various neon lights that lined every building.
“Oh yeah, I hung around here for a couple of days after I ditched Shorty and her friends. If I could, I’m sure I’d feel nostalgic.”
“Any reason you didn’t stick around?”
“Yeah, I got banned from ever coming back here.”
“Y-you were banned from an entire city after two days?”
“Heh, just means I live large and party hard!”
“I hope you’re not thinking of doing that again, kupo.”
An evil smirk ran across Xigbar’s face. “Oh no, I’m gonna do even better than I did last time!”
The Moogle faltered in the air for a moment. “Oh Kupo.”
~On a highway road on the outskirts of Las Vegas~
The Star Wars Nerds were walking at an extremely slow pace. They had been walking in the blazing heat of Nevada for hours on end.
“Are we there yet?” Whined J as he slowed to stop.
“Yes J,” said M annoyingly, “and for the 1,943 time would you shut up about it?!”
“Well it’s your fault we keep ending up in these situations!” Shouted G at M.
M stopped and turned to face the other three. “And how is it my fault exactly?”
“Oh, I don’t know.” Said an irritated J. “Why, it might have been because you didn’t check how much gas was in the tank of the car we stole!”
M waved off the accusation. “Fine, fine. In the future we won’t carjack little old ladies coming out of pharmacies. They aren’t the most reliable when it comes to filling up the tank.”
“That’s not even the biggest problem here!” Shouted G. “For the love of Sith, K is almost dead!”
A few yards behind them K was lying on the ground, arm outstretched, trying to crawl forward.
“Oh he’s just being overdramatic!” M started walking off again.
“Why the heck are we even going to Las Vegas?” Asked J.
G gave him a small punch to the shoulder. “Hey, does it really matter? Stop complaining and let’s see if we can’t actually have a good time for once. I’d like something on this trip to be worth our time.”
M tightened his fist and little sparks of lightning started to jolt around it. “Oh, it’ll be worth it alright. Las Vegas won’t know what hit it.”
