[July 29, 2005 in the United States. Jess age 9 at the time before she met Michael]
Running. That's what Jess' last memory was; running. A metallic screech echoed the misty forest as the purple haired 9 year old sprinted for her life and soul. Following her were two atypical animals; a wise but sarcastic cat who was just a perverted, talkative annoyance to dogs... and then there was Louie, an overweight yellow bat who had a crush with a ghost and thought to be the leader of his three younger brothers. To you, this animal duo might not seem hero material, they might not be needed in this story and that the writer of this story just threw in these worthless characters out of sheer boredom. But after this scene, the very same animals will come into play of the greatest match-ups in history. Without Worm the cat or Louie, Jess would've been dead and, mostly important, probably Cate's Naruto OC's and mine wouldn't have ever met Mic- Oh I'm getting too ahead of myself! Back to the chase scene...
"Hurry Jessica!" Worm yelled, "She's gaining on us!!!" Louie was resting on Jess' back.
"Man, that ugly lady is annoying!" He stated as if nothing exciting was happening. What he meant by lady, he meant the very tall spider beast who once resembled Jess' other mother. She lied, cheated, tortured, and spoiled Jess in order to eat her and other innocent children... (XD Reminds me of Thorn when she eats insects... Back to the story)
"You're mine, brat!" The Other Mother has the girl cornered. Her brown, messy hair waving with no wind flowing through it as she smiled evilly. Jess accidentally put herself between two decisions; either give up to the mother or die jumping off a cliff into the water. Jess faced her worst nightmare with fear in her eyes.
"That's right, kid. You can't get out of this one. Admit it... admit that you lost!" When that woman cackled, Jess didn't know what to do. But no one, not one villain, should ever antagonize Jess.
"Alright, I'll admit it! I admit..." Jess pointed to the woman, "... that you forgot about my abilities..." Then she motioned Louie to get in her backpack. It's as if she already has a plan.
"I can't believe you can be so annoying!" The Other Mother ranted, making Jess angrier and angrier, "Now you don't treat your mother that way. You know what she did to you.... she hated you. Your own mother hated you. Don't make me hate you too-" Jess couldn't control her rage anymore. Her eyes glowed purple and you can tell by her voice that there was hate in her heart for the very first time. Her voice was as if a monster, hurt and wounded, was yelling,
"YOU AREN'T MY MOTHER!!!!!!" Jess shrieked. The sound of that scream seemed like multiple earthquakes occurring. Jess has a hidden ability, an ability that man had tried to perfect for years: telekinesis. With this ability, Jess used her mind to cut a giant tree down and let it fall on the yelling she-witch. Jess just glared at the tree with hatred and she held herself from crying. It was stressful for her. Without one word, Jess nudged Louie awake. Louie spread out his wings as Jess picked up Worm in her arms. They were about to fly away when a hand, a long fingered metal hand, flung itself on Jess' neck. She was pushed backwards and she and her two "pets" fell down straight first into the cold water below...
*3 Days Later*
"Where are we?" Louie was the first to ask. They have all been traveling east by ocean and to end up landing in the most unusual, everyday country in the world; the United States of America.
"According to the position of the sun, this road map, and that newspaper, we are in California, U.S.A. on August 1, 2005. We're at a beach-" Worm couldn't finish because Louie cried out.
"In the middle of nowhere!!! What's more worse is that our owner is on the verge of death!" Jess was unconscious at the back of the beach with her neck still choked by the bloody metal hand.
"Wait..." Worm saw a road where cars come and go, "I have an idea. Louie, you
fly on the windshield and scare the first driver you see. I'll do the rest." Even though the bat thought the cat was crazy or nuts, Louie obeyed and flew in the middle of the road where a black hummer was coming towards him...
*in the car*
"What the-?" The driver exclaimed as he saw a yellow bat in front of him with its wings open wide. The driver stopped suddenly. An eight-year-old boy in the passenger's seat stared at the bat, who flew right on the glass but not breaking it, with awe.
"Hey Paris, look!" The boy exclaimed. In the back seat were 4 figures; a 7 year old girl with a butterfly mask on, a 3 year old boy with a blanket on his head, a golden retriever on the floor sleeping, and a 46 year old man who was sleeping with his sunglasses on.
"What is it, Prince?" Paris asked as she rubbed her eyes.
"The bat from the Nightmare Before Christmas in on the window!" Prince, who was 8, pointed at the bat. Suddenly, the dog started to growl. A blackish gray cat was coming inside the car. The dog barked at it, but the cat hit the dog with its claw.
"Won't you dogs just shut up?" The cat started to sigh. Paris shook the man who was sleeping.
"Daddy, daddy, the talking cat is in our car!" Paris explained. The man started to open his eyes and when he spoke, he had a soft falsetto.
"Paris, I see the cat and it is not talking. Don't touch him... he might make you sick..." The man shouldn't had said that cause the cat was offended and it bit the man's hand. The man screamed, making his glasses fall off. The bat on the window saw the man's face and he yelled.
"Worm, don't bite him! Don't you know who he is?!"
"Louie, not now I'm trying to hurt this guy for calling me sick..." Worm the cat was about to bite again when Louie still yelled.
"He's the King of Pop!"
"Michael Jackson!" Louie started to bow, "I'm so sorry Mr. Jackson. We just wanted to get some help for our owner Jessica. Sorry to bother you..." Michael rubbed his hand in agony and then became serious.
"What's wrong with her?"
"She's fine.^^" Louie didn't want Michael to become involved. But Worm's sarcasm broke the whole thing.
"And by fine, you mean choked to death by an evil metal hand, then yes she is fine..." At the word death, Michael was rushing out of the car.
"Prince you are in charge while I go get this girl, okay?" Prince nodded. Michael ran without a disguise, but he didn't care. Worm ran after him.
"Oh my god! We have to help her!!" Michael exclaimed as he saw the blood trickling from Jess' neck. He tried to pick her up, but she was heavier than expected. He tore off the metal hand out of Jess neck, then rushed back to the car, putting Jess in the middle of the backseat.
"Wake up, Rob!" Michael yelled the driver awake, "We have to go to the hospital, ASAP." Rob the driver woke up, but denied the pop star's request.
"No, Mr. Jackson. We only came to the US in order to get your personal belongings from the ranch, then I take you to your plane to Bahrain..." Before Michael could protest, Worm went next to Rob and swished his tail across Rob's face. Rob's eyes turned cat yellow and he made a U-turn to the hospital.
"Okay... okay..." Michael wheezed, "I'm going crazy, yeah that's it. There is no such thing as a cat possessing a man, no way!"
"So how's that working for you, Mike?" The cat spoke to Michael while he possessed the driver. Michael squeled like a girl. Louie glared at Worm.
"Dude, we could get arrested by this. I can read the headlines now: 2 pet-like animals kidnapping the King of Pop!" The bat complained as Prince was rubbing against him.
"Can you just let me drive this thing?! Don't make me turn this car around!" Worm screeched, causing everyone to be quiet. Louie muttered, "Well, you started it..." Things were going well... until half way there it started raining and the car ran out of gas. So what does Michael do? Oh, something eccentric...
"Michael, come back right now!!!" Louie screamed as Michael ran onto the road towards the hospital while holding Jess.
"I blame you, Worm..." Louie shook his head. Worm just made the driver pick him up and pet him.
"Hey, this human ain't so bad. Maybe he can be my human form..." Worm was obviously ignoring Louie.
