"Angel, speak, or I will kill your son!" Gemma said, clutching Alfred's throat.
"He's already dead," said Angel.
"I can make him deader!"
"I'll show you!"
Gemma points an invisible knife at Alfred's throat.
"Grim?" said Gemma.
"What about Grim?"
Disneyland Resort, Brindleton Bay 2031
It was nighttime at the Disney resort.
Alex and his undead Grandma Oak sat facing each other at the chessboard.
"Alex, I need to warn you about something," his grandmother said breaking the silence.
"Hmm?" smiled Alex. He was so excited to see his grandmother again. The woman who raised him for the first eleven years of his life.
"It's the Grim Reaper," said Oak. "I told you long ago about my involvement with the Resistance, no?"
Alex nodded. "That group in Egypt, fighting MorcuCorp?"
Oak nodded, "The Goodie Two Shoes were helping the Resistance fight back."
"Yes," said Alex, remembering Oak was a mole in the Goodie Two Shoes.
"Well we lost the battle with The Resistance," said Oak.
"Because of you, I know," said Alex, for Oak had been forced to spill the Resistance's plans to the Evil Geniuses who then passed the information onto MorcuCorp.
"And I've regretted it ever since."
"I know," said Alex.
"Because that night, Grim approached me and said that our loss determined a certain event in my Grandson's future. An event that would cause world chaos."
"Mhm? This about the battle I just had in Egypt?"
"No. Something much worse."
The Lotus Oasis, 2031 (Three Months Earlier)
"Hello," said Alex to the MorcuCorp woman at the Lotus Oasis. "Remember me? I introduced myself with the other groups earlier today." Alex was referring to the Evil Geniuses and His Evil Services. "We've been looking for a Casandra Fowl and Victor Just?"
"Yes, and we uh sent you lot away," said the woman whose job it was to check the visitors. "No Fowls or Justs here."
"You sure, hm?"
"Look, Cas. If I have to go down to the tombs, I have to go down to the tombs. Otherwise, they'll return us to our families," said Victor.
"Unless you have a plan? I mean, we could try and side with the Resistance?"
"Or we could see if we can get a new identity forged for us?" said Cas.
There was a knock on the door.
"Your families are here. You need to get out of this place fast. Follow me."
Meanwhile, the Evil Geniuses, Sweglords and members of the H.E.S were sheltering behind the space playground waiting for orders.
"So, you find the boss while we keep security occupied?" checked Adrian.
Alex nodded. There was a level of uncertainty in his nod.
"It was Henry's plan..." said Adrian.
"Yes and a very good plan at that," said Alex. "He suggested it in the Lounge before that dratted Caleb walked in."
"Then why are you looking uncertain?"
Henry was muttering to himself and his father wasn't liking it.
"Would you stop, Henry?"
"Has anyone checked the number of exits in this building?" Henry mused. "ADRIAN?"
"Shhh!" hissed his father.
"Have we checked the number of exits?" Adrian asked, after seeing Henry.
"I was just thinking that!" said Alex.
Meanwhile, Cas and Victor were being led towards the back of the building.
"Cas and Victor could exit from anywhere!" said Adrian to Alex.
Alex shook his head, "but the logical one is..."
"They'll be heading for the back of the building," said Henry. "I did a quick scan as we walked out. But we'll need to be wary of where the guards will be coming from when we ourselves enter. We don't want to be surrounded."
"Shhh!" hissed Henry's father.
Meanwhile, Alex greeted Cas, Victor and their new friend at the back of the building.
"Well hello old friends!" smiled Alex. "Trust Victor Just to side with the Resistance."
"Oh your new friend didn't tell you?"
A month later, Selvadorada, 2031
It was night time in Selvadorada, Mexico.
Some of Alex's archeologist cousins were dining at his cousin, Diego's, new house.
Analisa was allowed to bring Loki with her. I mean, who couldn't resist the company of an adorable little puppy?
"Who is King Rascal's cousin's favourite wittle puppy?" Analisa cooed.
"Any news of your cousin?" said her boyfriend, Santos. He joined her on the sofa.
"He'll be arriving next week with his fiancé."
Diego's wife, Alessandra, came over. Her ears pricked at the mention of 'fiancé.'
"You want to come down?" Analisa cooed once again. Loki was making noises to be let down.
"I don't know why he's nervous to introduce us to such a beauty!" said Alessandra.
"Ay, that should be the least of his worries," said Analisa. "Two words, Al Simhara."
Everyone hummed in agreement.
Loki headed for the front door.
"Ay you know," said Diego, who had been listening to the radio from across the room, "I think Alex should be reacquainted with Loki. It might be nice to give these two another chance."
Rats! thought Loki. Why does Diego always do this? I try to slip away unnoticed and he has to spoil it by mentioning my name.
