The two women and children ran frantically through the forest. They did not have a clue where they were going; all they cared about was getting to safety. They ran deeper and deeper into the woods never bothering to looked back to see if the beagle Boys were still behind them.
As they made their escape into the forest something occurred to Max, “Hey, ya know something about those ghost costumes looks really familiar.”
“Familiar? How?” Huey asked.
“I mean they look a lot like the ghosts from, the summer blockbuster, ‘Space Ghosts’ dad and I saw last week.” Max replied.
“Max! Why are wewe bringing this up now?!” daisy snapped, “This is no time to be comparing the beagle Boys’ costumes to the ones in the sci-fi geek thriller wewe and Goofy saw!”
“Yeah, now that I think about it, he’s right!” alisema Dewey, as he recalled the ghosts. “It just took me a few dakika remember since I haven’t seen the movie yet.”
“Wait a minute!” alisema Louie, “Uncle Scrooge alisema he didn’t want us to see it ‘cause it was made kwa the movie studio that Flintheart Glomgold owns! wewe don’t think…”
“Yeah I bet that Glomgold is in charge of this and is using the costumes from his hit movie,” alisema Huey.
“Well, that explains a lot,” alisema Webby, “I was wondering where the beagle Boys got such nice costumes. But if wewe ask me, I think it was mistake for him to use those since so many people have seen the movie.”
The group eventually came to a large rock wall, which was obviously a dead end. daisy and Judy searched desperately trying to see if there was some way over au around it. But all they saw were two paths, one very disheveled and unkempt, and the other very tidy. “Come kids! This way!” Judy called as she started down the uncluttered trail.
“No! This way!” daisy shouted, and began down the overgrown path.
“Why the heck are wewe going that way?!” Judy yelled, “You’ll never make through all that brush!”
“Well, they won’t make it through either!” daisy replied, “And we’re not gonna find some place to hide back there!”
“We are going this way, and that’s final!” Judy snapped, continuing to point down the cleaner trail. “And as the chaperone it’s your duty to come with me and protect the children!”
“Look, I don’t have time to fight! wewe go that way if wewe want! But right now my duty is to protect my family, and get them to the safest place possible!
“Fine!” Judy snapped, “If wewe want to take your nieces down a zaidi dangerous path that’s your decision!”
“Okay,” daisy replied, “Oh and kwa family I don’t just mean my nieces.” Then she called for her nieces, the boys and Webby, and they began down the other path.
Judy stared in disbelief. She had never had a chaperone, with the exception of McDuck; stand up to her like that. Hearing the loud sound of the beagle Boys arguing snapped her back to reality, “Um…Come on kids…this way.” She alisema feeling a little embarrassed, as she went down the cleared trail.
Again Max felt it was his duty to protect the women and younger children, and was unsure who to follow. He quickly decided to follow Daisy, feeling that Judy was better equipped to survive in wilderness being a troop leader.
Meanwhile Mickey and Goofy continued to battle the ghost. They soon realized that even with two against one the odds were not in their favor. Unfortunately the ghost could tell that Goofy was not very coordinated and decided to use that to his advantage. After knocking him down the ghost hit him in the face with the dead branch he was holding, giving Goofy a black eye.
As soon as Mickey saw this he decided to make a hasty retreat. “Goofy! Come on!” Mickey called, “Let’s get out of here!”
The two of them began to run back in the direction from which they had come. Unfortunately, Goofy got his foot stuck on a root and fell. “Yaaa-hoo-hoo-hoey!” He yelled as he came down.
Mickey heard the typical holler and came quickly back to help. “Ugh… Goofy! Did wewe have to get your foot caught now?!” he grumbled.
As Daisy, Max and several other children were running through the overgrown trail, they heard Goofy’s distinctive yell. Max immediately recognized it. “That was dad!” he exclaimed, fearing what might have happened to his father.
“Um…Let’s just keep moving, kids! Let me know if wewe see a good place to hide.” daisy said, trying to sound reassuring. “This is so not what I signed up for, when I agreed to be a chaperone,” she mumbled.
As daisy moved through the forest she continued to look for some place to hide the children, in doing so she failed to look where she was stepping. Suddenly she tripped on something and fell. “Hey watch it!” alisema a familiar voice.
“Look it’s Mr. Mickey and Mr. Goofy!” Webby exclaimed, as she shown her flashlight in the direction daisy had fallen.
Daisy quickly jumped up and brushed herself off. As she looked where the flashlight shown she saw that what she a tripped on was, indeed, Mickey and Goofy. “Mickey! Goofy! What are wewe two doing here?!” she asked, feeling relieved to see some friendly faces.
“What are we doing here?” Mickey replied, “You know why we’re here. We all left to find Scrooge. But you’re suppose to be at the cabin, what are wewe doing here?!”
Goofy then noticed that Max was standing inayofuata to Daisy. “Maxie!” he exclaimed, as he hugged his son. “Are ya all right? Them ghosts didn’t hurt ya?” then alisema to Daisy, “Daisy, I thought I told ya’ll I didn’t want Maxie out here fightin’ no ghosts!”
“I’m fine dad.” Max alisema feeling a little embarrassed, “And remember we agreed wewe wouldn’t call me that in front of any of the guys.” Then he noticed his father’s eye, “And are wewe okay?”
“Calm down guys!” Mickey snapped, then suddenly he noticed some of the children where missing, so he turned to daisy and asked, “Hey where the heck are Morty and Ferdie?!”
“Um…I…don’t know,” she replied, feeling embarrassed. “They must have gone with Judy.”
Suddenly they heard the sound of thrashing, “Uh-oh, we gotta get out of here.” Mickey said, “At least long enough to plan some kinda attack.”
“Look! We can hide there!” Webby called as she pointed to a large pile of roots and brush.
As they ran over to the pile something occurred to Daisy, “Say where’s Donald?”
As Donald and Duckworth fled from the ghost on the hike and bike trail, they noticed that as the kilima got steeper it got much harder to run. They knew that they would not be able to keep running much longer so they quickly looked for a place they could hide and rest. “There!” Donald called, pointing to a crack in the kilima just big enough for the two of them.
After hiding for several minutes, they thought they heard the sound of the defeated ghost angrily stomping away, while muttering curses under his breath. “Why I do believe he’s gone.” Duckworth whispered, when they could not longer hear the angry ghost. “Shall we check?”
Donald nodded, “I’ll look,” he alisema hesitantly. When he peeked out he didn’t see any trace of the ghost. “I think he’s gone. But we should probably stay here a few zaidi minutes, ‘cause he likely isn’t that far away yet.”
As Judy, and the children, fled up the kilima she began to notice that it was very open and it would be easy for the beagle Boys to see them and catch them. She also noticed that kilima was beginning to get steeper and the children were tiring out. Suddenly another beagle Boy dressed as a ghost jumped out at them from the shrubbery along the side of the trial. The whole group screamed in fear, turned and began to run back in the direction from which they had come.
Donald and Duckworth heard the loud echoing scream from their hiding place, “Uh-oh, that sounded like the kids.” Donald alisema nervously. “We…should probably go check.” Duckworth nodded in agreement.
The two of them came out of their hiding place and ran down the kilima toward the shrieks. They soon saw Judy and the children being chased away kwa the ghost. Donald grabbed a large rock and threw it, hitting the ghost in the head, “Hey pick on somebody yer own size!” he shouted.
“Hey! What the heck?!” yelled the surprised ghost as he felt the back of his head.
“Come on!” Donald yelled. The group quickly made its way around the ghost while he was distracted, and then continued to flee up the hill.
“Oh Duckworth, you’re so brave. wewe saved us.” Judy alisema as they ran.
“Now really is not the time madam.” Duckworth replied, and then alisema to Donald “I do believe we need to find another hiding place, ours’ is not nearly big enough.”
Donald nodded in agreement, and then he noticed that several members of the group were missing. “Say Judy, where are daisy and the boys?”
“Um…Daisy decided to take your nephews, her nieces, and Webbigail down a different path… because she thought it safer.” Judy alisema hesitantly.
“Well it can’t be anymore dangerous, than this path.” Donald mumbled.
Hearing that Morty and Ferdie quickly noticed the absence of their uncle, “Where’s Uncle Mickey?” Ferdie asked.
Before Donald could answer Millie spoke up, “Aunt Minnie’s gone too. Where is she?”
Unsure what to say Donald replied, “Um…I don’t know where they are right now… but I’m sure they’re okay!” hoping to sound encouraging.
Just past their original hiding place Duckworth happened to notice what appeared to be a small restroom facility for campers, “Quickly everyone in there!” he called pointing to it. Once they were inside they began to lock the doors and windows and arm themselves with whatever they could find, such as plungers and toilet brushes.
Meanwhile, Minnie could not believe what she had just found. She stared at the two items in amazement. “Launchpad, look!” she called.
He quickly came over, “Gee, Mr. McD’s hat an’ cane!” he exclaimed, “This must be where those ghosts took him!”
“Come on!” called Minnie, as she picked up the cane and juu hat. “We’ve got to find Uncle Scrooge!”
“Um…but Mickey alisema I was supposed to keep wewe safe…and besides how are we gonna find Mr. McD in this cave?” Launchpad replied hesitantly, not wanting to cause any trouble.
“Look footprints!” she alisema pointing at the ground, “If we follow those we’ll likely find Uncle Scrooge!”
The two of them followed the trail through the narrow passageway of the cave. Minnie shown her flashlight carefully along the walls; looking for anything that might be a clue to Scrooge’s location. Suddenly the beam of her flashlight revealed what appeared to be many large stacks of gold. “Oh my heavens!” she exclaimed.
“Gee, that’s almost as much dhahabu as Mr. McD’s got in his money bin!” Launchpad alisema as he stared in awe. “I wonder what’s it’s doing here.”
“Oh well I don’t know, but we don’t have time to think about that now.” Minnie replied, “Right now we need to find Uncle Scrooge.”
They continued to follow the footprints, until the two of them came to the back opening of the cave, which put them right inayofuata to the lake. When they exited they saw two men standing in the moon light on the dock talking. “So boss ya think this’ll about take care of McDuck?” the larger of the men said.
“Aye, Scrooge will be sleeping with the fishes.” The shorter man replied, “Then we can get back to mining me dhahabu in peace.”
Minnie and Launchpad quickly hid in the bushes, so as not to get caught, “Oh dear, who on earth are those awful men.” Minnie whispered.
“I bet I know.” Launchpad replied, “That’s Flintheart Glomgold and one of the beagle Boys.”
“Who are they?” Minnie asked.
“Well, Glomgold, he’s the sekunde richest guy in the world. And…let’s just say he’s willing to go to any length to be the richest…even…knock off the current richest guy.” Launchpad explained.
Minnie gasped when she heard that, “Well then come on we’ve got to help Uncle Scrooge!”
“Right! I’ll take care of Glomgold and the beagle Boy, wewe help Mr. McD!” alisema Launchpad.
Launchpad jumped out from the bushes and punched the beagle Boy in the face, taking him kwa surprise. “Go Minnie!” he called.
Minnie quickly ran past them to the dock. “Catch her ye fool she’s trying to save McDuck!” Flintheart shouted.
Scrooge lay at the end of the dock, with his hands, feet, and mouth tied. He also had a large rock tied to him so that it would be impossible for him to float, once he was in the lake. He had used all his strength trying to escape, and with no success, so he had about aliyopewa up hope. All he could do now was pray for a miracle to save his family and friends. However as soon as he heard the familiar voices and saw Minnie running toward him, his eyes lit up. But when he saw her coming, while he did feel some sense of relief he also felt a great fear for now she was in danger. “Oh Minnie why would ye risk your life like this?” he thought.
When Minnie reached Scrooge, she could tell that it would take too long to untie him, “Launchpad! I need your pocket-knife!” she called.
Launchpad heard her, and tossed the knife. It almost landed in the lake, but Minnie managed to catch it. Then she quickly cut Scrooge free.
“Oh, Minnie thank heavens your alright! But ye should not have risked your life for me, because now ye will be in danger!” Scrooge alisema as he hugged her, then he stammered “A-a-and please tell me they didn’t touch me lads and wee Webbigail.”
“Don’t worry, I’m sure the boys and Webby are fine, Uncle Scrooge. They’re back at the cabin, kibanda with daisy and Judy.” Minnie said, hoping to ease his worry, as she hugged him back.
Not, feeling very reassured Scrooge hastily tried to stand up and leave. Quickly realizing that his ankle was still too weak to walk on, he called, “Launchpad we’ve got to get out of here!”
“Right! Mr. McD!” Launchpad called back, then came over, picked up Scrooge and Minnie, and ran back into the forest.
