“Don’t try to move!” Captain One Mitten snarled. Ducky and the gang were cornered and Captain One Mitten had a sword.

“We surrender! Don’t hurt us!” They all yelled.  Captain One Mitten then led them into the cave where Amanda Panda and Penelope Penguin were being held, along with Multilingual Mole.

“What are you going to do to us?” Pembleton asked as he, along with Ducky, Ted, and Blizzard were forced in to an empty cage.

“I, Captain One Mitten, will have my revenge. I have not forgotten about what happen on the island. You cost me my treasure. I plan on come up with something extra dastardly to do to you all. It will be the most terrible,  dreadful, fearsome, frightening, ghastly, horrendous, horrible…”

Ducky quietly whispered to Pembleton, “Don’t bad guys know once they start monologuing, the good guys always win?”

As Captain One Mitten was blowing hot air, and reciting the details of his evil plan, Ted and Blizzard slipped through the bars and tip-toed over to where Cornelius was tied up, just under Amanda and Penelope’s cage. Ted and Blizzard were able to open the satchel and retrieve the stinky boot, which they tossed to Amanda.

Amanda first was disgusted by the revolting odor, but then she knew what she needed to do. Captain One Mitten was still monologuing about how once he got Multilingual Mole to figure out how to open the door to his riches, he was going to do “the most appalling, atrocious, awful, monstrous, gris-” That was when Amanda chucked the stinky boot and smacked him across the noggin.

They all froze, as Captain One Mitten teetered and tottered back and forth while trying to finish his monologue. Then he fell to the ground with a loud ‘thud’.

“Wow, I’m surprised we can’t see birds flying around his head. Good aim, Amanda!” Ducky said with a little awe in his voice.

“I know.” Amanda said proudly.

“Pembleton, what would we have done, if I didn’t pack that stinky boot?” Ducky asked as Ted and Blizzard released them from their cage, but Pembleton acted as if he didn’t hear him. Soon everyone was released. Then Ducky and Pembleton dragged the Captain into the now empty cage and told Egor to get into the cage too.

“Okay, now lets get out of here!” Amanda firmly stated.

“Wait!” Multilingual Mole shouted. “We can’t leave the mystery unsolved. We have come all this way and this mystery has laid uncovered for hundreds of years. The ancient test reads ONLY THE FAINT OF HEART WILL BE ABLE TO UNCOVER BEARISTOTLE’S GOLDEN TREASURE THAT LAY BEYOND THIS DOOR. Now I need to see the girls pendents to figure out how to unlock the door.”

Reluctantly, Amanda and Penelope, who had retrieved their pendents from Captain One Mitten, handed them over to Multilingual Mole.
