“This… this can’t be,” said Yujo.
“We must avenge him!” yelled Tall Cactus.
“But how?” asked Bucky.
“Perfect Sky and Purple Claw, go get Burt and Crusher,” Tall Cactus demanded.
“Yes ma’am,” they said in unison.
“Yujo, Bucky, and UiPE, go get what’s left of Ned, Crawfish, and Director D, then put them in a new bamboo box trap.”
“We’re already on it!” the three said in unison.
“Fishy and Silva, you will help me in a moment. First, I got to talk to Burt and Crusher,” said Tall Cactus.
“Here comes Burt!” yelled Purple Claw. Weirdly, Burt was being carried by a pack of pigs.
“Yujo! Summon your vines to tie around Burt!” yelled Tall Cactus.
“Okay,” Yujo replied.
“Burt, who are you working for?” asked Tall Cactus.
“What makes you think I’m working for someone?” Burt asked.
“Because you didn’t give yourself powers, the light blue lightning did,” Tall Cactus replied.
“Well, I’m never gonna tell you,” Burt said.
“Purple Claw, howl for some wolves,” Tall Cactus demanded.
“No! Not wolves! They are almost as terrifying as Nokkens!” yelled Burt.
“Then tell us who you are working for!” yelled Tall Cactus.
“Not trying to be rude,” Bucky interrupted, “but it is ‘whom you are working for’.”
“Shut up!” yelled Tall Cactus.
“Okay, I’m working for the Ice Prince. He wants revenge on his sister, or something like that, so he gave us some powers,” Burt answered.
“How do I get to him?” Tall Cactus asked.
“What I’m about to tell you may sound complex,” said Burt, “but it really does work. The Ice Prince told me. Three days from now, at 7:00 PM, he wants all his powered villains to go to the Meltene Desert. There, he will take us to his lair, where we will help him take over the world.”
“Okay, Perfect Sky, you know what to do!” yelled Tall Cactus. Perfect Sky used her powers to lift up Crusher and use him to crush Burt.
“Put these two fools in the bamboo box,” said Tall Cactus.
“Hmmm, the Meltene Desert shouldn’t be that far away. That’ll give us time to come up with a plan,” Slanted Fish stated.
“Darling,” said Mr. Silva, “the Meltene Desert isn’t near Meltene City. It is 8,000 miles away from us!”
“Then why is it called Meltene Desert?” Slanted Fish asked.
“Because,” Tall Cactus said, “In 1882, the first mayor of Meltene City took a trip to Tokyo to make a trading agreement. Not know that he could cross the Pacific to get there, the mayor went in the opposite direction. It would take him many, many months to get to Tokyo. On the way there, he went up Mount Zeuseus. When he got to the top, he could see the mountain beside it, Mount Aleousus. However, between the mountains was a desert, never touched by a single Poptropican. He made a home there, and never returned. Eventually, someone found him. The desert became so popular, they named is the Meltene Desert.”
“Great history lesson,” said Perfect Sky, “but now, it’s time for a road trip.”
