Rawwrrrrrrrrr!!! Finally! We have bagged and tagged the long-hiding perpetrators of the Sanrio Town bank robbery. If you’ve been following the case closely, our only lead was a group of bugs wearing shades, followed by a sudden flash and then a big explosion and sounds of buzzing and clinking.
Being heroes that we are, we used what clues we had and started investigating. When the commotion subsided, we asked the people around the area for what they saw or heard. As usual, Stego, being the big marshmallow that she is, commented on the lady’s beautiful dress.. Anyway, that lady said that when the whole incident was happening, she heard that one of them was smirking and told another (probably a companion) that the “boss” would be so pleased. That’s all. Well, I told myself then that didn’t help much. Pressing on, we asked another witness (or at least a semblance of witness since people were SO disoriented!), this time a little boy. He told us that he was sucking on his popsicle when he heard the explosion. He was on top of a building nearby when all this was happening. I didn’t ask what a little boy like him was doing on a dangerous rooftop. What was more important then was what he saw but I gave myself a mental note of telling the boy off when all is said and done. He told us that he saw brightly-colored “wings” floating out of the dust clouds and debris. They were carrying bags with $ on them and then flew towards the woods. A-ha! I knew it was the Chibiko Gang! A hero’s first hunch is ALWAYS correct.
Anyway, after I scolded at the kid and told him not to suck popsicles on a rooftop, we headed for the woods. Boy, we didn’t realize how big the forest is until we stepped in! It was dark and creepy and full of icky, creepy crawlies… but we PRESSED on like our idols, the Dino Thunder Power Rangers. As we went deeper and deeper into the forest, we started hearing weird, gravelly voices.
“Where’s the map?”
“I gave it to you!”
“I don’t have it! Maybe the other one has it?”
“Hey don’t look at me, I don’t have it!”
“How are we going home now?”
“Didn’t we have a map?”
“We lost it!”
“We’re talking about it right now!”
“Of course we should talk about it! Without it we can’t go home!”
“That’s what I’ve been saying! You never listen!”
“Since when? Hey, I listen!”
“Hey guys, you got gum?”
At first, we thought it was ghosts or some other spooky hooky. We hid behind the bushes. Brachy craned his neck above the bushes to “scout”. As long would have it, the voices came from none other than the Chibiko Ginga Gang! Yay! I started flexing and cracking my knuckles the moment I saw them. Boy was I ready for a fight! I told the others that at the count of three, we jump out of the bushes and tackle away but when I turned around to face the team, they were all gone! The next thing I heard was a loud thud and a angry, but muffled voices. I looked back to where the bugs were and what I saw was the big, fat Stego on top of the helpless bugs. “I guess that’d work too…” I whispered to myself.
With the bugs conveniently pinned, I grilled them about their intentions but they were tight-lipped.
“What’s the money for?”
“Who do you work for?”
“Would this go well with my dress?” (Stego, obviously)
After a barrage of questions, they were still adamant about not spilling the beans. Since heroes don’t take the law into their own hands, Stego wrapped her thinck tail around them and dragged them back to town and straight to the police. Sanrio Police were surprised when we burst through the doors with the gang in hand (er… I mean tail). Nothing made my day more than saying “Book ‘em, chief!”
Hmm.. the plot thickens… who is this big boss?
Only time will tell… unless someone tell us now so we can save the trouble of stewing over this.
