    Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?

    Post by Guest on 10/27/2010, 13:13

    Frankie woke up.

    "...hello?"

    She tapped on the glass.

    She realized something. She didn't have the snowglobe. That meant, somewhere, Bloo and Wilt were in the middle of nowhere, all alone...

    "Hello?" she called louder, "anyone?"

    She didn't want to think too hard about what'd happened, but she was dead... she had to be.

    And Frankie's cries did not go unheard for there, in the darkest depths of the underworld did something stir. The Good Doctor, already surmising that it would be very busy with events of late, managed to replicate itself into multiple programs; one such version arrived at Frankie's voice.

    With its elongated beak did it peer at her behind those thick glasses, and it opened the door carefully so the girl could breathe and see it fully. Ah, there she was. So young to die. It offered her a hand to take, as it did with all patrons, and waited patiently for her to climb out.

    She took the hand and got up.

    "...I'm sorry," she said to him, "I know this'll sound weird, but... When I got here, did I have a snowglobe on me? Small, has a big house in it, with a little blue guy and a bigger skinny red guy with a gimp arm and wonky eye?"

    She held the hope they might be close to help her through... whatever this was.

    But sadly, the Good Doctor only shook that head of its and it gestured with a gentle roll of its hand for the girl to follow. Follow, down into the bowels of the underworld. It was time for her trial.

    And it was another death by chance.

    Terrific.

    She followed him... It was silly, but... she felt almost naked without her friends. "...So, how's this work?" she asked as she followed him.

    To be honest, the Good Doctor hadn't a rightful clue. Frankie's death was merely because of chance; a terrible stroke of a fate most cruel. How could the girl be judged upon such... such... such absurdity? Of course it wasn't going to tell her it had no clue, but it would see. See and think.

    When they reached the cavern, the Good Doctor had itself a seat upon a most pleasant boulder and it thought. What could it every do with the girl? What could it--ah. It knew.

    There was a snap of its fingers and a puffy aura began to bulge before Frankie, and soon... something began to form. First a face, then a body, followed by legs and finally, a tail. It was what Frankie had always wanted to see in death.

    A cat.

    "..."
    She looked at the cat. She wondered whether she could have an allergic reaction in death.
    "What do you want me to do?" she said, approaching the cat tentatively, to see whether or not she would have her usual reaction.

    The cat, young and fluffy, looked up at Frankie quizzically and did what all cats did when curious.

    "Meow!" It squeaked, remaining still.

    If she paid attention, she would remember this certain cat from the world above.

    Frankie recognized the cat and chuckled.

    "...Huh. Not so aggressive without Mr. Choppy to command you, eh?"

    She realized that having a reaction would make no sense- She had apparently died, and she was pretty sure this place was metaphysical. Though she would be sure if she entirely understood the meaning of "metaphysical". She picked up the kitty.

    "Hey, little guy...."

    "Meow!" Barry Jr. squeaked again, purring at all the attention he was receiving. He didn't seem so harmful now, did he? In fact, the cat was loving every moment of being held and cradled. "Meow!"

    Could this really be Frankie's test?

    She pet him.
    "You know, I'm sorry about what happened," she said, "you know, outside of... this death experience that is probably not entirely real. I didn't mean to hurt ya, little guy."

    Again, Barry Jr. mewed happily and curled his fuzzy tail, literally sedated from all his pampering. Of course, he was not real as the girl believed, and the Good Doctor--having seen all that needed to be seen--approached and gently took the pixelated cat into its arms.

    A portal then cracked into existence before Frankie, and Portal City rippled brightly upon the warped surface.

    Let the records be clear that Frankie had not meant to hurt Barry Jr. and all had taken place under the pressure of the situation then. She was free to go. There was no longer a reason to keep her with the deceased. The Good Doctor simply stood there and waited, petting the purring cat all the while.

    Frankie took a look at the Good Doctor.

    "...Thank you," she said, "I'm gonna go... my friends are out there and they're alone. I'm needed."

    She walked through the portal and was gone.
