After the fantastic reception and subsequent TopSaucing of my last blog, I decided to try my hand at another fan-fiction. This sets the scene, so it's a bit short. Enjoy!
It was late at night, and I was drifting to sleep at my desk. Suddenly, I heard footsteps in the hallway, and saw a shadow at my door. I could make out a short shape, with a big nose and a hat. It was either a little kid, or one ugly dame. Then, there was a knock. “Come in,” I said, “What brings you here so late?” As the door opened, I found that neither of my deductions were correct, and found myself looking at a short man in overalls.
“You must-a-be Rex, is that right?”
“That’s what they call me. Who are you?”
“I see that. What brings you to my office?”
“You’ve got-ta help me find-a-da princess! She’s a gone missing”
I sat up in my chair. I’ve been hired to find husbands, wives, kids and Waldo, but this was my first brush with royalty.
“Well, this sounds important. I like to help people, but I’m running a business here. Do you have payment?”
“Of course! Just a second…”
Already up and alert from the news of royalty, I practically fell out of my chair when the man pulled several hundred gold coins out of thin air.
“Let’s a see… That’s two hundred for the detective work, forty-two for any items you may need to-a help you on your way, and three hundred to get you a-started on your extra lives.”
For the first time in my entire career as a detective, I was flustered. I thanked Mario for the payment, sent him on his way, and closed up my office. Tomorrow, I would find that there was more to the case than met the eye…
