this first segment of a mini series of crime scene detective Mario
stories, Mario discovers the Princess has been abducted. With no leads
except for a hard ass Goomba, Mario is stumped.
Now join us as we delve into the twisted story.
1 “The Disappearance”
day, March 16th, the time 7:00pm, the place my home, I
remember the day, it started off with my usual cup a joe and my
morning paper. Luigi and
I were getting ready for work when we got a knock on the door.
Toad was at the door and by the expression on his face I could
tell something was wrong by the expression on toads face, he told me
that the Princess had been abducted again.
I kinda smirked, and asked him if he had already found Bowser.
Then his face grew pale, and he told me that Bowser was dead.
I quickly lost my sense of humor about the matter, and began to
grow worried. I asked him
where the Princess was last seen and he told me, on her way to the
church. I informed Luigi
of the situation and immediately took leave.
2 “At the Church”
arrival at the church, I asked the priest if he had seen the Princess
today. He told me yes,
and that she stayed for a good hour or so before leaving, that meant
that the Princess made it to the church, but where did she go after
that, I decided to head for the Palace and find the last person that
had seen her. I
questioned family members and friends, but nothing seemed to turn up,
so I decided to start searching for clues.
We turned that Palace upside down and inside out, but nothing
seemed to turn up. Then I
noticed it, the bed sheets were gone.
At first I was puzzled, nonetheless it was the first real lead
I had gotten all day, so I decided to look further into it, why would
someone have taken the bed sheets not unless they were used to climb
out of a window? Maybe it
wasn’t abduction after all, what if the Princess just ran away.
All the clues pointed to it, and I was fresh out of ideas, so I
started off towards the town.
3 “While in Town”
I got to town it all seemed kind of odd, the streets were almost
empty. It felt like a
ghost town, but I needed answers and I was going to get them.
I began knocking on doors, but no one would answer. After about the fourth house I knew something was up.
I started to scan the streets for an out of place character,
then I saw him, a rough looking Gumba, I knew he wasn’t from around
here and I decided to welcome him appropriately.
When he saw me coming he tried to run but I grabbed him by his
little pointy-head. “Now
listen here kid,” I tried to sound tough, “ I wanna know what
you’re doing on this side of the Mushroom Kingdom?” In a gruff
voice he said “I ain’t gotta tell you nothing.”
I could tell he was a hard ass so I decided to take him down to
the Palace for questioning.
