One day in Mario World, Mario and Luigi were taking Peach and Daisy out to lunch when … Bowser?
RRROOOAAARRR! Hand over the ladies, said Bowser.
Never! said Mario and Luigi.
So you want to play rough do you? HUE? NO, not Bowser JR. Ha HA HA HA! Ok Luigi looks like you and me are going to Bowser’s castle once again. But Mario, what about the Magikopas and the Shyguys? They could seriously hurt the Toadstools any time of the day.
But Luigi we have to go and save Peach and Daisy. Ok, you know Mario, you’re right. You’re not too bad once in a while. So let’s go get Bowser and teach him a really not so pleasant lesson. Also let’s tell him that the ladies are not for sale.
Ok let’s get him. Oh look a fire flower. We’re here Luigi we have to get the girls back?
BBBWWWAAAHHHAAAHHHAAA BACK FOR MORE LOSERS? Hand over Peach and Daisy, Bowser, or me and Luigi are coming in since we had to make your kooplings forfeit against me and Luigi.
Come on Luigi we can’t fool around with Bowser Mario Luigi!! 1 Peach Daisy? You chumps don’t know what your getting into. I got Goombas and everything around here. Yeah well I know for sure that we will get the two Princesses back. We all know that we can beat you again and again.
Your Kooplings are tired and your stories ended, Bowser now just hand them over and give up Bowser.
Sorry chumps it looks like you’re too chunky to have these losers. But then why do you want them if they’re a bunch of losers then, huh? Well um bomb- bombs attack. Let’s go Luigi. WHOA what was that? It looked like a giant meatball on top of a plate of pasta. Mario, stop talking about food, I’m starving. Sorry Luigi, I just can’t help it, the thing honestly looked like one. Fine, just stop talking about fooood for a while or at least till we get to the mushroom kingdom. Ok Mario. OK Luigi. Thanks Mario. CRAP
BOMB- BOMBS. Ok BOWSER you know how to throw a bomb- bombs but the question is can you deflect one? You should know how to deflect your own medicine. WWWHHHHHHAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bowser … Is this one of your tricks like the one that when you took Peach and Daisy? NO!!
Peach … Daisy you girls are free. Now we have to get out of here before this place falls to ashes rrrrrrrruuuuummmmmbbbbllllllleee we have to get out of here NOOWW!!!! Bye BOWSER. Are we all here? MARIO SAVE ME! … yelled Peach from in the basement where Bowser had left her.
Luigi, I’m heading in, you stay here and guard Daisy especially since Bowser knows how to take stuff quietly without us noticing unless it’s a big noticeable object that’s missing. But still, stay with Daisy until I get back.
But Mario, what about that thing in the sky that you saw? Its fine Luigi there is no such things called aliens if that is even what it is. But still there has not been an alien on Mario World and there never will be one, Luigi.
Ok, Luigi was freaked out about aliens. But Mario said there was no such thing as an alien, said Daisy with a little bit of a scared look in her own eyes (The reason she had fear in her eyes is because when she was younger her brother was abducted by an alien).
Mario? Mario? Is that you? asked Luigi. Luigi you have to move these big boulders from the castle. I’m not sure where Bowser and the little twirps (meaning the kooplings) got to. We can’t let them get away, said Luigi. Thanks for getting Peach and I out of the mess from the castle. Thanks Luigi and Daisy, said Mario and The Princess that Mario is dating Peach. No sweat Mario, chorused Luigi and Daisy.
Now we have to get back before zzzzzuuuuuummmmmmmeeeeeee!!!!!!! A dark blue blazing light turned the sky blue and was heading toward Mario, Peach, Luigi, and Daisy. The sky was darker than the deepest cave, not a single sparkle had shown. AH Mario Luigi? the two Princesses asked. Is that what I think it is? Well. Asked Mario, What do you think it is? Alien spaceship, replied Peach. Daisy jumped in. Peach you guessed right. As much as I hate to say it but you’re right. Daisy and the others were horrified by the thoughts of having real invasion but … but … but … said Mario. But what? Luigi asked. I thought it was impossible to have an invasion in Mario World. It’s fine Mario we are all wrong even I Peach doesn’t do the best thing sometimes. Peach is right Mario, sometimes Peach doesn’t make the best choices, said Luigi. Mario laughed so hard Peach started to laugh a tiny bit but still did not forget what Luigi said though. Daisy said we have to get back to the Mushroom Kingdom right away. Daisy was right they had to get back before OH NO!!
Aliens are abducting the Toadstools!! Look a fire flower, come on everyone touch it and we will all become stronger … and we can shoot these nasty slimy figurines to smithereens. Mario Fireballs on 3. 1-2-3 Mario Fireballs. Now let’s go kick some Alien butt. :] Pluck pluck. GLOUBHUTRA. 1 down 700,000,000,000 to go! OH MY PASTA! yelled Mario. How are we going to …? TAKE COVER YELLED PEACH AND DAISY!! What was that? It looked like a giant explosion, Luigi explained. Well it was definitely not an explosion. That was pretty obvious to know that the explosion was not actually an explosion, explained Peach.
The reason why you thought it was an explosion Luigi, was because the combination of the lights from the UFO’ S mixed in with a big, huge, and loud fire circuit made your mind think it was an explosion.
Now lets stop fooling around behind this brick wall and get out there and fight until we KO all the Aliens. BBBzzzhuduxdhxdoieuey. The Aliens are saying something. Peach do you know what the Aliens are saying? asked Mario. Yes. If I can just get my voice transformer. AH. I got it. The cool thing about this voice transformer is I can say something like hello into it and set the switch to Alien voice and it will speak Alien language. Now time to see what they’re saying. MUST GET MARIO! ! MUST GET MARIO! ! OH crud!! Mario I think they’re after you, said Peach.
Wait I got an idea, said Daisy. Mario since I don’t want to fight these guys very much anyway. We could always dress you up like me and I dress up like you. That’s not a bad idea Daisy, said Mario. Yeah but how will you fit in Daisy’s dress? asked Peach. Well we could always get a Toadstool to. Wait what if we could get Bowser and his Kooplings to help fight these Aliens off and get them off this PLANET!! screamed Daisy. I’m not sure that would be such a good idea, said Peach. Why? That would be a great idea. Now all we need is a plan or trap, said Mario. But what could we use for bait? asked Luigi.
Mario looked at Peach and Peach did not like the look on his face. NNOO WWAAYY, said Peach. But why, asked Mario, if we can get Bowser we may not need to worry that Mario World will not become a bag of … SMITHERINES! yelled Mario. Fine but you have to promise that I get to choose where to go for dinner Tuesday night. Ok? asked Peach. Ok, Mario promised.
Here’s the game plan. First Peach will find Bowser in his castle, then when you see him stay your distance and say oh Bowser Mario left me and now I want to marry you. Afterward you get him to start to come toward you and once he’s fairly close, take off running from him where Luigi and I will be waiting for you. Got it, said Mario. Got it, yelled Peach already taking off toward the castle.
Peach wait a minute, yelled a Toadstool from a far off 50 to 60 yards away. It was a Blue Toad. I found this fire flower at the top of a huge hill so here you go, you could have it. Thanks Toad. Come on this will be a piece of cake.
Bowser, Mario left me and now I want you, but first you have to come outside and take me out. What the crap is going on out here, you have to help fight these Aliens. Bowser this is what I want your help with. If Aliens take over Mario World you won’t be able to.
