Chapter 3: Revenge at night
This begins a few hours earlier during school, after Absinthe was thrown in the fountain. Jeffery was walking Bertha to Henry and Layla at the rooftop.
Both walked through the hallways and up some stairs having a talk with each other.
“Say um, who was that girl that was yelling at you back there?” asked Jeffery.
“She's... she's my sister…” said Bertha.
“Your sister? Well whatever she got that attitude she must've had a brutal past.”
“She didn't, but I did because of her. When I was a baby kitten she turned angry and I don't know why.”
“When you were a kitten? My god this is serious.”
“She's just not a nice sister. When Henry brought her in to surprise me, didn't surprise me at all it was scary. Mildred wasn't a good sister, people think she is because she fakes it. In private she yells at me…”
“That's terrible, and you said her name's Mildred?”
“I thought she was dead and I don't understand why she's alive again.”
“Well how did she died?”
“Concussion by being hit by a baseball while we're watching a baseball game.”
“Concussions causes some sort of coma Bertha, and they don't last long.”
“Well my old owner and I thought she was dead for awhile, until I was transferred to an animal shelter and met Henry and Layla.”
“I'm sure she'll be nice again sometime.”
“Na ah, she’ll never be nice. Now that she's back she’ll never leave me alone and always bully me.”
Bertha sheds some tears out of her eyes.
Jeffery will might have to talk with Henry and Layla.
“Okay, we’ll might talk with them, but if they don't believe you then I'll tell the truth what I saw with my two eyes,” Jeffery then brings out a brain scanner with a TV screen, “we can show them with this. I made it myself at the Science club.”
Bertha giggles a tiny bit and wipes some tears off of her, but that ain't enough to cheer her up.
At the school rooftop, Henry, Layla, Jenna, Skarlet, and Yandere-Chan are talking with each other about of how good Mildred was doing good for Bertha.
“So I'm telling ya, this coolest thing happened yesterday,” said Henry, “do you remember when Bertha you thought didn't had a sister?”
“Na ah.” said Jenna.
“Totally not,” said Skarlet, “but if she does then I guess that's when she got some fear into her system.”
“Well she does have a sister.” said Henry.
“Then you know what I'm talking about.”
“Not really, but she was nice and kind. Looks like Bertha lied but I think she’ll get over the Mildred's a monster thing and think that her sister's a good person.”
Then Jeffery and the sad Bertha comes over.
“Oh hello Bertha,” said Jenna, then she looks at her seeing that Bertha's tearing up, “hey what's wrong?”
Then Bertha runs to Jenna and hugs her.
“What's wrong with her?” Henry asked Jeffery.
“I know what's wrong with her, because guess what? Her sister? She decide to fight her!” said Jeffery.
“What? No, that did not happen Jeffery. You’re just imagining things.”
“No, it’s true.” Jeffery brings out his brain scanner, which is a brain wave helmet attached to a TV screen, you think there's no helmet from the last part welp, think again. “And I can prove it.”
Jeffery puts the helmet on Bertha, turns on the screen, and shows it to Henry and Layla.
After a minute of mostly yelling and violent screaming from Mildred's voice, Henry and Layla both looked in shock and awe.
“Oh my god...so she was faking it?!”
“I guess so...about what?”
“Her being nice! My god I can't believe we’ve been idiots!”
“Who?” asked Skarlet.
Henry turns the screen towards her and shows Mildred.
“Oh, okay I see who you mean,” said Skarlet, “damn she does look a little bit on the skin tight except the puff sleeves. Kind of like mine but hers looks like a fluff at the end or whatever.”
“We ain't talking about that right now Skarlet,” said Henry, “we're talking about of how bad Mildred was doing to Bertha. God damn it she had us fooled!”
“I told you,” said Bertha, “and you two never believed me.”
“So you decided to let this happen?” asked Jeffery in disappointment.
“I...I guess Bertha is telling the truth.” said Henry.
“Yeah dude, s**t happens.”
“No wonder Nyle's trying to solve her problem, it was actually from Mildred.” said Layla.
“Looks like we have to kill Mildred than.” said Yandere-Chan.
Layla turns to Yandere-Chan.
“No Yan-Chan, we have to think of it something other than killing someone. Maybe we can have the time to talk with her when she comes over.”
“Yeah, we should do that,” said Henry, “but if things do go wrong than Yandere-Chan and I will be the backup.”
“Finally, I get to use my knife as my weapon once again.” said Yandere-Chan.
Several Hours later at night, Absinthe and Nyle are walking through the woods looking for the home of Jeffery the Jackalope. Nyle is trying to navigate where Jeffery lives.
“Are you sure this is the right way?” asked Absinthe.
“Duh Mildred, this is where he lives,” said Nyle, “and I’m sure he lives almost near where Klay lives.”
“Don't know who he is.”
“He’s one of my enemies...but sometimes I'm friends with him.”
Then they got to the place of where Jeffery lives, it seems to be a tree that’s decorated into a house of some sorts.
“Is this it?”
“Seems like it by the door mat.”
Both Absinthe and Nyle run around to the back so that Jeffery wouldn't notice a thing that they are here.
Nyle opens the backdoor to the house and Absinthe sneaks right in. Nyle would think it’s a bad idea but has to go with this if she wants her to snap; she goes inside the house.
The scene cuts inside the house as Jeffery sits on his couch watching TV drinking some soda and eating a bag of potato chips.
Absinthe and Nyle are hiding from behind the wall waiting for the right time for Jeffery to come over to the room they’re in.
“Should we do this?” whispered Nyle.
“Not yet,” whispered Absinthe, “we need to wait for that Jackalope out of that room so that we can tackle him and hold him down and giving him what he deserved like what he did to me.” she said while clenching her fist.
Jeffery turns off the TV and gets off of his seat and heads to the other room; he goes to the kitchen, but what he didn't know that Absinthe and Nyle are behind there.
“NOW!” Absinthe shouted.
Absinthe and Nyle pushed Jeffery down to the floor. Absinthe headlocks him to the floor and knocks him into the wall. She then brings him to the water filled sink and dunks his head down in there.
“Uh, do you think he’s had enough?” asked Nyle.
“No he does not!”
“Please! Please stop!” said Jeffery desperately.
Absinthe brings Jeffery down to the floor.
“Then why did you decide to f**king push me in the fountain?! If you haven't had done it then I wouldn't do this to you!” shouted Absinthe.
“You were shouting at Bertha dude! It was your fault!”
“Well you f**ked me hard big guy!” Absinthe holds Jeffery by the neckline of his pink collar.
“Wait, I'm not the only one that is giving you the blame, the Martial Arts Club is also blaming you man; they were thinking if you destroyed their club room then you'll might be the one to blame! You're the one that looks innocent; you have been acting strange since this morning!”
Absinthe then gently puts Jeffery down but still gives him that angry look.
“You sure about that?”
“...Then it looks like we have to get revenge on them then…”
“What do you mean?” asked Nyle.
“I mean what if those karate guys are going to tell on us?”
“That's right! Those guys do look tough, but they are also teachers pets. They want to tell on us for what we’ve done today, but not what we're gonna do about it! Come on we need to get to them!” Absinthe and Nyle gets out of the room, but Absinthe comes back in for Jeffery, “Hey Jackalope, you coming with us?”
“Ugh, fine. Just let me get dried up first.” said Jeffery as he gets up and leaves to his room to dry himself off.
“We better get going!” yelled Nyle from outside.
“I’ll be out in a minute!” Shouted Absinthe, “Just waiting for the Jackalope to get out!”
Then Jeffery comes out of his room dried up and ready to go.
“Alright, I won’t flip you over anywhere again unless you don't get me in pain alright?” asked Jeffery.
“Fine whatever, let’s go!”
Absinthe, Nyle, and Jeffery get out of the woods to find The Martial Arts Club and beat them from being told on.
In the Buraza Town Park, Budo Masuta and his Martial Arts Club members are waiting for someone to come over to fight the one who messed up their club room.
Budo stares in the distance waiting for someone to pass by if it was someone who did it while the rest of the club members are sitting on the ground waiting for someone as well, but also wanted some sleep.
“How long is this gonna take?” asked Juku, “we’ve been out here for hours. (Yawn) can we just go home and wait for tomorrow?”
“Patience Juku,” said Budo, “don't you think that we should let this slide and put this away? Someone destroyed our club room, the Occult Club Room, and the Drama Club Room. This one person might be an assassin of destroying club rooms, and we're gonna find out who did this and why.”
“But is karate suppose to be for protection only?” asked Shima.
“Quite Shima! Or else you want this club to be taken down due to all of the damage this has cost us.”
Outside the park from a mile away, Absinthe, Nyle, and Jeffery are walking down the road to somewhere where the Martial Arts Club maybe at around the area, but seem to be no sign of them.
Absinthe gets a little impatient as she sees that there's no one in this area, but has a suspicion that they can pop out of nowhere.
“You sure they are here?” asked Absinthe.
“I'm sure, those guys go to the Buraza Town Park,” said Jeffery, “but if you are gonna beat them up then you better be careful because those guys are super strong...most are but two aren't.”
“Eh, that will be easy. I see lots of people that try to beat me up, and I can just knock them out within a suckerpunch.”
“You sure you can do that?” asked Nyle.
“What can I say? I’m a tough kitty.” said Absinthe.
The scene cuts back to the Buraza Town Park where Budo still stares at the distance where the park entrance is awaiting for someone to come over and fight.
Seemed to be no one in sight, until they saw three figures of some sort walking in the park. Those guys might be the ones that trashed the three clubrooms.
“Hey guys!” Budo shouted to his club members, “Someone's coming in!”
“Finally, been waiting for a while master Masuta!” said Sho.
All the club members of the Martial Arts Club gathered and formed in a straight line; all including Budo prepare for battle as they await for their challengers to come over for a three on six combat.
“Alright guys, make sure you guys do not make any mistakes!” Budo awaits for the three people who might have destroyed some club rooms, “come on you three! I know you're out there! I saw you, now come out and fight all of us like men!”
“And women!” yelled Shima, “respect yo!”
The three figures came out of the shadows and revealed to be Nyle, Jeffery, and a cat dressed in some little princess costume.
The Martial Arts Club looked in fury, but also confusion at the same time.
“...Uh, who's that?” asked Budo in confusion while pointing to the grey cat.
“Who am I? Why I am your worst nightmare,” said Absinthe, “the name’s Mildred, the one that my friends and I destroyed the Martial Arts Club Room, the ones that got three club rooms into rubble.”
“Now hold on...you three, did that?!”
“But of course, why wouldn't we? Especially with a guy like you knows lots of self-defense by far.”
“Well well well, didn't expect that from a cutie patootie but this...means...WAR!”
“...As you wish. Hmhmhm.”
Absinthe gets on four, readying herself.
Nyle uses her sports tape tentacles, and Jeffery uses...his…he didn't brought any weapons so he’s gonna have to sit and watch.
“Charge!” Yelled Budo.
And the Martial Arts Club charges on to Absinthe and Nyle.
Absinthe brings out her claws, jumps high, and leaps on to Juku Ren and scratches faster than the speed of sound on his chest, ripping his clothes and scratching his chest region.
Nyle grabs Shima and Mida and slammed them both together in the face; she picks them back up and threw them far away to the beach area right next to the Atlantic.
Jeffery just doesn't like what he sees and runs off so that he doesn't have to see this right now.
Budo counterattacks on Absinthe, but then was grabbed by the leg. Absinthe seeks her claws deep in his legs and slams him against the tree hard. So hard that it knocked the tree down.
“Who’s next?” asked Absinthe as she turned around towards Sho.
Sho is going to attack, but decide not to, so he retreated out of the park as the scene cuts to the outside entrance of the park where it also shows Jeffery hugging his knees. Sho was going to escape, but gets grabbed by Nyle’s Sports tape tentacles and some punching and crunching noises happen from inside.
As the sounds of brutalities were over, Absinthe and Nyle got out of the park not even breaking a sweat.
“Man, that was pretty-” said Nyle.
“Awesome?” asked Absinthe, “yeah...I know.” She turns around and sees Jeffery sitting on the ground cowardly in fear; she grabs Jeffery by the neckline and brings him against the brick wall. “So you decided to act like a wimp huh? What kind of dumbass Jackalope are you? You can't even fight?! Huh?! Is that it?!”
“Dude, what the hell was all of this fighting all about?” asked Jeffery in fear.
“You know what it was about! Those guys were trying to tattle on me is why!”
“That doesn't mean you should fight them.”
“Mildred, let’s just go alright? Let's just leave him alone.” said Nyle.
Absinthe then puts down Jeffery but still looks at him in the eye in pure anger.
“I thought you are a good person,” said Jeffery, “and you decided to beat up my friends from one of my favorite clubs?”
“...they are not your friends Jackalope...now get out…NOW!” yelled Absinthe as she points to the direction of where Jeffery lives.
Jeffery then gets up and runs off to his home.
“Girl what's going on with you?” asked Nyle.
“We don't need him anyway, come on we need to get out of here to our homes until things get rough.”
Absinthe runs off to the place she was staying leaving Nyle on the spot.
Nyle then runs to her home while wondering of bad things of what Absinthe will do next. What's gonna happen next? Is Bertha gonna get hurt again? Is Absinthe gonna kill someone? Guess she has to find out.
At the Basu Sister's house, Nyle comes in at the dead of night looking around that all of the lights are off seeing that everyone might be asleep; she goes to the hallway closet and brings out her mirror to bring the real Mildred.
“Milly.” she said to the mirror, and fadley reveals Mildred on the mirror.
“Hey Nyle,” said Mildred, “what did Absinthe do this time?”
“Well, messed up some club rooms, beat up the whole community of the Martial Arts Club, and try to beat up Jeffery but instead made him join him.”
“Ugh, knew that’ll happen, but I'm sure she's gonna self-destruct at the right time at some point.”
“You sure? The only time I see her self-destruct is just beating people up.”
“That's what Absinthe made me do it when she's in my body.”
“In fact, I have no idea how she got into your body. Do you know why?”
Mildred looks in worry and would hate to share it to Nyle.
“I...I don't think I should tell you...It's a bit too risky from that past.”
“Come on, just tell me. I swear I won't tell anyone else.”
“Okay...It was eight years ago, back when my little sister was a baby kitten.”
The scene fades to a beautiful scenery from eight years into the past of Mildred's and Bertha's original home with their owner Tinana. Young ten year old Mildred was playing with a mouse toy on a cat tree while the baby kitten Bertha sleeps on Tinana's lap.
Young Mildred's tummy started rumbling, feeling like she's hungry.
“Hey Tinana,” said Young Mildred, “I'm hungry.”
“Not right now Milly,” said Tinana, “I need your baby sister to rest first.”
Young Mildred gets down off the cat tree she was playing on and walks towards the kitchen to get something to eat. When she made it she sees a bag of cat treats on the counter; she tries to go up there trying to reach, but she's a little short, then suddenly heard a noise from the backyard.
Now why would there be a noise in the backyard at night?
She goes outside to see what the noise is coming from; she uses a flashlight to see who's making the noise, but no one seemed to be out here, except a white horned like cat.
That would be Absinthe. Her real appearance is she’s a white furry horned demon cat with red eyes and pink and gray pupils, long black claws, and razor sharp teeth.
“Oh hello,” said young Mildred, “my name is Mildred, what's your name?”
The cat comes closer very slowly and begins to speak.
“Hello…” she said in a female creepy voice, “if it ain't a cat... that's not my kind...now you shall be cursed...by the end of your days…”
“Uh, who are you...and can you please stop being a little creepy... you're scaring me.” Young Mildred said in fear as she backs up.
“Why I am the evil Absinthe...and I should take your body...and use for evil…” Absinthe transforms into this lava like mass and jumps high aiming at Mildred.
Young Mildred tries to run back inside but was too late; she was dragged and Absinthe gets in through her body through the eyes and mouth.
Mildred gets on her paws and knees and tremors to the pain; she feels her soul coming out, and was thrown up through the mouth out of her body, into the attic, then inside a mirror.
Back outside, Mildred's body transforms her look, some of her hair turns pink, her eyes turn from a blue to a red and gray.
Her body gets up, and showing that Absinthe now has the power to, even to this day, controls Mildred’s body.
“And that's what happened.” said Mildred.
“Man, that girl is brutal.” said Nyle.
“And now that my soul is trapped in her mirror, there's no way to get out at all.”
“But you said there's a way out.”
“There is, but they have to have Absinthe with you along with some helpers to help me get out of here…” Mildred then sheds a tear, “I just want to see my sister again...I felt so sorry for what Absinthe has done to her.”
Nyle feels bad for Mildred of how much pain Absinthe has done to Bertha in the past, but she knows that she along with some friends would help.
“...Mildred, I’m sure even if Absinthe is here and Bertha's afraid of her, I'm sure she still loves you the same.”
“But if I do come back what if she's still afraid of me?”
“I'm sure that won't happen.”
Mildred wipes off some tears and stops thinking about the bad things that happened in the past, and needs to start thinking about now.
“I knew I shouldn't have come outside and met my feight. Just please, please try and get Absinthe out of my body so I can have my body back.”
“I’ll try, Nyle out.” Nyle covers her mirror as Mildred fades off the mirror.
Nyle closes the closet door and leaves the mirror inside; she still has to think of the plan, and if things go wrong, then probably by tomorrow she’ll let her self-destruct when the time is right. But has to get some sleep, so she heads upstairs to sleep with her sisters for a good night sleep til the next day.
At the garden maze, Absinthe sits on her air mattress wondering what she would do next. Maybe she can make some students as mindless slaves, or maybe try to pretend to be cute again to lure someone to a different and then kidnap them.
“Aha, I got an idea,” she said, “maybe instead of kidnapping someone, then I can kidnap, my “sister” so that no one can see me or see her again. Yeah, that is a good idea I can do, so that Bertha won't have to be seen in this world. And if she wants to see her sister, then I can just put her soul in the same mirror I put Mildred’s soul in.”
She thinks that it's a great plan, but if things go wrong then she’s gonna need some backup to help her escape. So she pulls out a cellphone and calls up Roland for help tomorrow.
“Huh, wuh, y-yeah, what's up this is Roland speaking.” said Roland on the phone.
“Hey big boy.”
“Oh hey Absinthe, before you say anything to me I need to ask you. Why are you calling me in the middle of the night?”
“Well me, I'm gonna grab my sister and take her out of this town and kill her. So I need some assistance to well whoever comes up on me or if someone's trying to hold me hostage or something.”
“Really, well I live far away from you right now.”
“Then get up early in the morning and drive here then.”
“My god seriously?...ugh okay look look, I'll be there probably at night okay? Besides it doesn't take long to kidnap. You live in Buraza Town and that someone you're gonna try to kidnap lives here right?”
“So, hold them at point. I'm sure there's some sort of weapon for you to use to protect yourself with.”
Absinthe gets up from her bed and looks for some sort of gun she can use; she digs through as deep as she can go, and then found a gun she can use, a pistol.
“Cool I guess, anyway chow.” Roland hangs up.
“See ya later boar boy.” Absinthe hangs up her phone and puts in the princess dress as a pocket.
She looks at the mirror seeing it like Mildred hasn't came through Absinthe's mirror yet, like she is trying to ignore her or something.
“If she doesn't come out of that mirror,” Absinthe said in anger, “so help me I’ll cut Bertha down like a samurai slice and dice.”
So it looks like Absinthe is fed up that Mildred ain't appearing through the mirror anytime soon.
Absinthe grabs the blue teddy bear, lays on her air mattress, puts on her headphones, and drifts off to sleep as she looks the last time for tonight at the mirror.
To be continued...
