Aloha, whoever is reading this. You know, for an American TV show, Star Trek sure is a lotta fun, ya? I was watchin’ an episode wid my ‘Anela on the TV across the street that has subtitles. That bald chieftan, Pee-kard, has a "Captain’s Log" and I thought to myself “Akamu, one day, you’re gonna be old. Like, real, real old. And you probably gonna wanna remember stuff. You should have a captain’s log!” So I started writing, and that was only about 5 minutes ago so here we are. You probably don’t care about that though. Instead, let me tell you about what’s been going on lately…
So dere we were. Mindin the shop, havin a drink. My buddy Andre (at least I think he’s my buddy… never can tell wid dat guy ya?) gets a call from someone named “dispatch” telling him he’s got a VIP pickup… somewhere. I didn’t ask where. Should I? I dunno. Either way, he leaves for a little while and comes back with Zach and, wouldn’t you know it, the FREAKING SUMMER LADY OF THE FAE. I knew this was gunna be bad juju from the moment she slinked in the door, ya? Turns out I was right. Apparently some ghouls been stompin’ all over MY city, chewin’ folks up. Now, I know da summer lady is bad news, but you can’t just let ghouls eat people. Even if Princess-twists-her-words is the one asking. So, me and ‘Dre and my ’Anela told her we would help (Note to self: buy Ana some flowers or candy or something, cause she is MAD). ’Ona was still open for a few hours, so Ana took care of the place for us while me and ’Dre went to the library to do some snooping. When we pull up, tho, instead of getting to sit in a quiet library, a person comes flying out of a third story window!!! I caught him with a nice, soft(ish), slide on my shield… but he was already dead. Too bad. That was a good shield. Anyways, we go inside, and the place is trashed!! Dere were dead bodies, books, blood, ghouls, you name it, it was in pieces all over the place. So naturally, we were in the right place. We made it up to the third floor (there was some Juju with a guy and a crimson-colored cross necklace, but more on that later…) and there was a firefight! Ghouls and gangsters and a giant masked man, oh my (by the way, that’s a great movie, but it should be called the “Wizard” of Oz, if you catch my drift). The big masked guy was kickin all kinds of ass, but he didn’t look like he was up to anything good either, ya? Anyways, he picks up a book off the ground, and tells me “don’t follow”. Yeah right. The cops decided to show up about that time, and the big guy was blinded by a search light. I used the opportunity to rip the book out of his hand, and me and ‘Dre hauled ass. We almost made it out, too. Except this big guy can jump. He managed to catch up with us outside the library, and while ’Dre was struggling to get the car moving, I was doing my damndest to keep this guy from curbstompin us, ya? It’s apparently hard to walk when the Earth is trying to keep you on your back, cause we made it into the car. We got followed by some kind of sports car and a cop, but Andre is slicker than a jungle cat, and we managed to escape.
I don’t remember the title of the book… I should probably remember that… but we took it to one of Andre’s contacts, an uppity, holier-than-thou, stuck up, boring, old, fat, ugly, nasty worm of a human named Ben. He seemed like he knew his stuff, but I know my ’Anela is just as smart as him, easy. Either way, I was about to go (and maybe shake the place up, just a little, you know?) but ’Dre managed to talk me into letting mr. poop do his thing. I still think Ana will be able to tell us more though.
Anyways, that’s what’s been up lately. I’ll try to update this when we have more adventures, maybe it’d be something good for my future kids to read, ya?
