|Dim light shined over Yoshi. He opened his eyes,
dazed. "Where am I?" he thought. Yoshi got up
and looked around him. He was in a dark room lit by
candlelight. He turned and saw a long mirror. In it he
saw a green Yoshi and a fuzzy blob. He blinked and
cleared his eyes, but the blob was still there. The blob
started to move. It was heading straight for Yoshi. As it
moved closer, Yoshi recognized it. It was one of the
ghosts from the game. Shocked, Yoshi jumped and bopped it
on its head. The ghost faded away. Yoshi continued to
fight and defeat the translucent spooks. He crept into
corners, bopped on villians, and leapt through levels
just like Mario had. Yoshi was having a great time.
"This is easy!" he thought aloud.
"Oh Really?!" boomed a voice out of nowhere.
The room melted away in a blur.
"Oh no!" Yoshi found himself in a strange
place. The wind whistled quietly. An eerie silence was
settled over the place. Yoshi looked around him. He found
himself looking around a chilly dark catacomb (an
underground cemetery with chambers and tunnels).
"This must be the secret level. Alright! I've found
it." "So brave in the face in danger, aren't
you?" said the loud booming voice. Yoshi began to be
scared. Hmmm...., is this a dream? thought Yoshi. This is
just like what happened when I met Pete. But my bear was
with me. "Oh no, what if this is real!"
"That's right!" the voice said. A eerie laugh
from nearby. It echoed on the stone walls. Yoshi ran
blindly through the stone tunnels. Wait! I should fight,
he thought. He ran back and saw a faint translucent blob.
Yoshi tried to bounce on it, but he couldn't see clearly.
"You'll never save the princess now!" said the
voice. Yoshi tried to bounce on it again using his acute
sense of hearing. Yoshi missed again. What am I going to
do now?, thought Yoshi. "I'll save you!" a
voice exclaimed. The princess ran in and dusted the air
with powder. Yoshi saw the ghost covered with powder and
bopped on it many times, but the it seemed unaffected.
The ghost started throwing stones, but Yoshi caught them
with his tounge. Yoshi and the princess threw the rocks
back at it. Annoyed, the ghost took out a bunch of
hammers, and started throwing them too. Yoshi and the
princess decided to start running. They ran and ran
blindly with the ghost following close behind them.
Finally, they found the exit. Outside, rain was pouring
and the wind was howling. Yoshi and the Princess sped out
of the tunnel. The ghost went out after them. It grew
large and got ready to throw the hammers. Suddenly,
lightning struck it. Yoshi and the princess felt
electricity flowing from the ground. The ghost was
shocked and dropped the hammers. It blew apart with a
boom. A falling hammer fell onto Yoshi's head, and he
went unconcious again. Next thing Yoshi knew he was back
home sitting with his fried video game system. Not again,
Yoshi thought. Yoshi decided to throw out his fried video
game system. He was happy to be home. But did he really
escape the video game system?
