Bubble Bobble: The Big Adventure
Chapter 1: The Adventure Begins.
Once on a far away planet called Bubbluna there were two bubble dragons called Bub and Bob. They were friendly creatures with very nice attitudes towards all. They never argued but they had their occasional ups and downs but they were sensible when dealing with it.
One day Bub and Bob were bored. So they decided to play hide and seek.
'Can I hide first, Bub?' asked Bob.
'Yes. Of course you can!' replied Bub.
So Bob went off to hide and Bub started to count. Bob got to his hiding spot when suddenly his hand slipped and he felt something like a box of some sorts. He was amazed that there was a mysterious box there.
'What's inside?' Thought Bob to himself.
'Should I open it now or should I wait for Bub?'
'Ready or not. Here I come!' Bub was on his way upstairs to find Bob.
At this point Bob was full of excitement to see what was in the secret box. Bub finally came to the attic and spotted Bob's tail from the side of an old suitcase.
'Found you!' exclaimed Bub with glee. 'What's that box you have there Bob?' asked Bub.
'I found it when I came in here to hide. I wonder what's inside it...' 'Maybe we should look inside!' suggested Bub.
They went downstairs into the front room where they laid the box on the table. Bob proceeded to open it, and then a cloud of dust burst out.
He let out a little sneeze and took out what looked like a scroll. It had a few tears on the edges and it was tied up with a silken red ribbon. Bob gave Bub the scroll so he could untie the ribbon.
'I wonder what is could be...' said Bob waiting in anticipation.
Bub carefully loosened the ribbon without damaging the old scroll. Bub opened the scroll to see what it really was. Bubs' eyes lit up in amazement.
'Can I see it?' asked Bob trembling with excitement.
Bub carefully passed the scroll to Bob.
'Oh my! I'm speechless!' whispered the brothers in awe. 'A map! I wonder where it could take us.' They both examined the map thoroughly. There was a Blue circle on the map on the Bottom Right hand corner and a big, red 'X' on the top left corner.
'I'm expecting that red 'X' is where we need to go, but what about that blue circle?' Bub murmured to himself.
'Maybe it's where we are! Because look at the shape of that patch! That's Bubbluna.' Said Bob pointing to the almost perfectly round shape on the map.
'Oh yeah! I never noticed that before!' Bub facepalmed.
Bub turned to Bob with an adventurous gleam in his eye. 'Bob, we so need to follow this map! I feel an adventure coming on!'
'YEAH! WAHOO!' exclaimed Bob. He was always up for an adventure.
Bub let out a chuckle as he continued to examine the map. Suddenly, Bob noticed something.
'Bub, turn the map over! There's some writing in this side!'
He flipped the map over to reveal an ancient text.
"Ye travelers who seeks the treasure within the dark trolls' lair, beware.
Eleven trials will await to intercept those who seek the riches.
The first trial that awaits you lies in the plains of Bubbluna."
'Well THAT wasn't very helpful!' snapped Bob in disbelief.
'Bob, it's a warning! So when we go across the plains, we need to look out for something BIG… I'm having second thoughts about doing this.'
'B-but Bub! We gotta go!' Bob pleaded.
'Bob! This is going to be extremely dangerous!' said Bub.
'I'll pack my bag then! I'll bring loads of bandages and some medicine if it's going to be dangerous!' said Bob hurriedly.
'Fine, but I still have half and half thoughts about doing this.' Sighed Bub.
Moments later, Bob finally ran down with his slightly oversized rucksack draped over his arm. It was almost full to bursting with supplies. Bub felt slightly re-assured, yet embarrassed because of the size of the rucksack compared to his brother.
'Well, should we get going, then?' asked Bob with a hint of excitement in his voice.
'Yep! Lets go, bro!' said Bub walking out of the door.
Bub and Bob set out of their cozy little town into the wide world of the unknown.
What dangerous beasts could be lurking in wait for them?
