Mystery of the Forbidden Valley
[Bob, Larry, Petunia, Junior, Laura, Jimmy, Jerry, Aristotle, Isabella, Horace, and
Tiberius are initially surprised when the starfish appears in front of them, as it
starts to lumber menacingly towards the group. Fortunately, Tiberius knows of a plan
to elude the starfish.]
Tiberius: Everyone! Follow my lead!
[Tiberius is able to run right between the starfish's legs, as do the others, as the
starfish tries to get at them. Unfortunately, this causes the starfish to lose its
balance before it falls over after that, causing the ground to shake when it hits
the ground. However, the group suddenly find themselves confronted by both the
butterfly and the moth after that, which cuts off their path.]
Larry: Yipes! We're trapped!
Jimmy: I never thought we'd end up this way! Done in by an oversized butterfly and
Tiberius: Come on, mates! Don't give up yet! We'll find a way out of this!
[Fortunately, Tiberius comes up with another idea on how to escape both the butterfly
and the moth. With that, Tiberius then grabs hold of two vines hanging from a tree,
before he uses these vines as whips to confront the butterfly and the moth. The butterfly
and the moth both fly forward at Tiberius, but this time, Tiberius is able to jump up
into the air before using the vines to wrap around the front of the butterfly and the
moth, using them as reigns to try and control both the butterfly and the moth. Once
the butterfly and the moth have been under control by the vines that Tiberius is using
as reigns, he then jumps onto the butterfly's back holding onto the vine keeping the
butterfly under control, while also holding onto the vine that holds the moth, before
flying down in front of the group after that.]
Tiberius: Well, hop on, everyone.
Jimmy: Are you crazy?!? You expect us to ride those monsters?!?
Bob: Jimmy, we have no other choice now. After all, Tiberius seems to know what he's
Aristotle: Yes, you do have a point, Bob.
[Soon, the group then start to climb onto the backs of the butterfly and the moth after
that. Bob, Larry, Jimmy, Jerry, and Petunia climb onto the butterfly's back with Tiberius,
while Junior, Laura, Isabella, and Horace climb onto the moth's back, though Aristotle
opts to fly himself. Tiberius holds onto the butterfly's vine while Isabella holds onto
the moth's vine as well. Since both the butterfly and the moth now find themselves under
the control of Tiberius, they have no choice but to fly to wherever the group want them
to go to. After flying for several minutes, the butterfly and the moth fly the group to
another area of the Forbidden Valley where they'll be safe. After Tiberius and the rest
of the group dismount off the butterfly and the moth, Tiberius then removes the vines,
which allows the butterfly and the moth to fly off after that once they've been freed.]
Tiberius: Thanks for the ride, mates.
[After the butterfly and the moth have flown away, Tiberius then faces the group after
that, as they are all surprised at the way he was able to effortlessly control the
butterfly and the moth to fly them where they needed to go.]
Junior: That was great, Tiberius!
Laura: Yeah, I thought that we were in trouble!
Tiberius: Oh shucks, little ones, it was nothing really. I've done it before on my
Aristotle: Well, whatever the case, we should be safe from those monsters for now.
Horace: Let's hope so.
[The group then looks up at the sky to see that it is now getting close to sundown,
which means that it is getting too late for the group to continue their rescue
mission to save Berle.]
Tiberius: It's getting late, mates, we better find a place to make camp.
Bob: Good idea, Tiberius. Who knows what happens here at night.
Larry: *shudders* I don't want to think about it.
Tiberius: It's alright, mate, we're perfectly safe as long as we don't go wandering
out at night.
Larry: Well, that's good to know.
Jimmy: Hey, Tiberius, is there any chance we'll get a supper break as well? I'm starving.
Jerry: Me too!
Tiberius: Sure, mates.
Isabella: Tiberius, you'll have to excuse Jimmy and Jerry, they're always hungry.
Tiberius: *chuckles* No problem for me, Isabella. I understand how the blokes feel.
[Fortunately, Tiberius knows that there are lots of edible foodstuffs in the area that
he and the others are in, as well as knowing what plants to avoid. Later, Tiberius,
with help from Aristotle, Isabella, and Horace, comes back while carrying a large
load of apples, bananas, pears, oranges, grapes, watermelons, wild onions, mushrooms,
arugula, endive, and watercress. Once the food has been collected, Jimmy and Jerry
are eager to dig in, but Aristotle stops them.]
Aristotle: Hold it, you two. We have to say our prayers first.
Jimmy: You're right, Aristotle.
[The group, including Tiberius, then bow their heads and close their eyes as they
say their prayers.]
Aristotle: Lord, we thank you for everything you've done for us. We also thank you
for helping to keep our hopes and dreams alive, and help us to find Berle if he is
still alive. We also thank you for this food we are about to enjoy. In your holy
Tiberius: I admit that God has also been with me throughout my travels. I have prayed
to him to help me follow my dreams in adventuring.
Petunia: We're glad that you also believe in God too, Tiberius.
[With nothing else to say, the group then begin to eat their meal, knowing that they
still have a long way to go to try and find Berle when the morning comes. After dinner,
the group, with help from Tiberius, is able to find a place to sleep for the night so
that they won't have to worry about getting attacked by the monsters during the night.
Tiberius finds a cave which doesn't have any creatures living in it, which the group
is able to use as a place to spend the night. Soon, the group has gone to sleep, in
the hopes that they would be able to find Berle in the morning. However, Tiberius is
the only one not sleeping, as he is busy looking up at the Diamond Stars twinkling in
the sky. Aristotle wakes up in time see Tiberius looking up from the opening of the cave
at the Diamond Stars, as he walks over to see if Tiberius is alright.]
Aristotle: Tiberius, are you okay?
Tiberius: No need to worry about me, Aristotle. I'm just doing some thinking.
Aristotle: What are you thinking about?
Tiberius: I've been thinking about all I've done ever since I've decided to follow my
dreams in becoming an adventurer. Every night, I look up at the Diamond Stars in the
sky, and I pray to God, asking him if I'll ever find what I'm looking for in my adventures.
Aristotle: I do have to admit, the Diamond Stars look really beautiful, but I have heard
stories about how they might possibly help to make your dreams come true, but I never
really believed it myself, because I know that you can't make your dreams come true
just by dreaming that they'll come true alone. You have to follow your dreams in order
for them to come true.
Tiberius: Quite right, Aristotle. I've worked hard to follow my dreams in adventuring
until they came true.
[Tiberius and Aristotle still look up at the Diamond Stars in the sky, before Aristotle
then thinks of something and looks over at Tiberius after that.]
Aristotle: Say, Tiberius?
Aristotle: Do you ever get tired of just traveling all over the world? Don't you ever
wish you could have a place to call your own?
Tiberius: Sometimes, but I feel that traveling is my true calling. I wouldn't feel
comfortable just living in a home of my own, it'd drive me bonkers after a while.
Tiberius: But, I have often wondered what Pinnacle Forest looks like, since I've never
traveled there before. Maybe I would like to go there sometime.
[Aristotle then nods in understanding after that. He then notices Tiberius looking
even more solemn than before.]
Aristotle: Now what are you thinking about?
Tiberius: I've been thinking about a song that my mum used to sing to me back when I
was just a young dingo pup before I went to sleep. And I've been thinking about it ever
since I grew up and decided to become an adventurer.
Aristotle: Hmmmmm, maybe you'd like to sing that song for me, Tiberius?
Tiberius: Well, if you insist, Aristotle.
[Tiberius then prepares to sing the song that his mother used to sing to him, as soft-
sounding guitar music starts to play.]
Tiberius: [singing] Goodnight, baby, sleep tight, my love
May God watch over you from above
Tomorrow I'm workin', what would I do
I'd be lost and lonely if not for you
So close your eyes
We're alright for now
I've spent my life travelin'
I've spent my life free
I could not repay all you've done for me
So sleep tight, baby
Unfurrow your brow
And know I love you
We're alright for now
We're alright for now
[After Tiberius has finished singing this song, Aristotle is both amazed and impressed
at how well Tiberius is able to sing.]
Aristotle: That was a nice song, Tiberius, and you're right. God is watching over us
from above, even as we speak and especially when we're working hard to follow our dreams
Tiberius: That's right, mate.
Aristotle: *yawns* We should get some sleep now. It's really late.
Tiberius: Yes, I agree, Aristotle.
[Aristotle then gets back to his sleeping spot and goes back to sleep after that,
before Tiberius also does the same, before going to sleep as well. Back at the Mysterious
Figure's laboratory in the mountain, the Mysterious Figure is still working hard on
trying to find a way to restore the mini-animals back to their small size again, but
Mysterious Figure: Oh, it's no use! No matter what I do, I just can't seem to find a
way to counter the effects of the growth formula that affected my mini-animals! I'm
afraid that I've failed as a scientist! *sobs*
[The Mysterious Figure still continues to sob over his failure to try to find a cure
for the growth formula. The next morning, the sun has risen high in the Forbidden
Valley once again, as the monsters wake up to resume lurking throughout the valley.
The turtle comes out from a large lake that it had been sleeping in, as does the
starfish, the butterfly, the moth, and the bee take to the air once again, as does
the chicken, and the horse, the cow, the pig, the crab, the lobster, the scorpion,
the snake, and the spider are able to lurk through the foliage again. At the same
time this happens, Bob, Larry, Jimmy, Jerry, Petunia, Junior, Laura, Aristotle,
Isabella, Horace, and Tiberius also wake up as well. After having breakfast, the
group then sets off on their way again to resume their mission to save Berle from
the Forbidden Valley. Once again, Tiberius is able to lead the way, since he knows
his way around the Forbidden Valley.]
Tiberius: Stay close, mates. There's no telling when those monsters will show up
again, so we must stay on our guard at all times.
Aristotle: Yes, it is important that we be careful.
[Unfortunately, just as soon as Aristotle says this, the group suddenly finds themselves
ambushed by the crab, the lobster, the scorpion, the pig, the cow, and the horse. The
horse rears itself up at Bob and Larry, but they are able to dodge before the horse
could stomp on them with its front hooves. The cow swipes at Petunia with its horns,
but Petunia is also able to dodge, so the cow just slices a nearby tree with its
horns. The scorpion brings its stinger forward at Aristotle, Isabella, and Horace,
but they are also able to dodge, just as the scorpion's stinger hits the ground after
that. Jimmy and Jerry find themselves menaced by both the crab and the lobster, as
the two jackal brother quickly run for their lives while screaming fearfully, having
completely forgotten that they were supposed to stay with the group.]
Tiberius: Looks like the blokes have the right idea! We must split up!
Junior: But, Tiberius, I thought you say that we have to stay together!
Tiberius: I know what I said, Junior, but this time, we have no choice now!
[Tiberius is able to dodge the pig before it could ram into him. Because of this,
Bob and Larry go one direction with the horse still chasing them, Petunia, Junior
and Laura go another direction while the scorpion chases them, Aristotle and Horace
go another direction with the cow chasing after them, and Tiberius and Isabella go
another direction with the pig chasing them.]
