    Crap translating service....*has already forgotten the line now*

    I think it was supposed to be something along the lines of...

    "He could have shot Kermin!"

    Oh... That makes sense... That should be "¡Pudo haber matado a Kermin!"
    Hope you're doing well...

    I am. Trying to print out "Sadie's Stories" now. X_X On my other computer. So every 10 mins or so I'm having to go and coddle the thing so it'll print more. It's not that bad, just it bothers me. XD And I'm finally transferring Adobe Photoshop 7.0 over to that computer too.

    Rully need to get more harddrive space over there...oh well. Probably more story in a little while, if not, more on Monday. As I'm going to go to the Vet's with Bridget tomorrow. Might go see Doc too, if my throat isn't better by tomorrow morning too. Thanks, I don't think I can actually edit it now, cause it's been so long, but I will fix it in the wordpad edition. Thanks Ed.

    Well... Now that I posted an update, hopefully it'll trigger a chain reaction and get Beth and Sara inspired to continue their own stories... Please?

    Chapter Thirteen

    It was the next morning, bright and early; when the gang all decided they should head back to Manhattan to start filming. Scooter had his clipboard in hand, and was checking off things left and right as they were hauled into the bus.

    "Okay, I think that's everything, guys!" Scooter said, as he saw the last piece of equipment being set up on the bus.

    "Wait, man. Where's Animal's drum set?" Floyd asked, looking around a little bit. Then suddenly Animal let loose this huge burp, and laughed.

    "Sorr-eee" Animal stated, after another small burp came forth.

    "Little dude, like, must've eaten it, hun." Janice laughed, smiling.

    "To true. Wild thing can't keep a drum set for more then 2 days before he eats it..." Dr. Teeth said, smirking.

    Piggy was sitting on the bus already, she wanted to get back to the peace of the Boarding house as soon as possible. Although she made it a habit to get to know Kermit's family and all, she never really was fond of the swamp, as he was. There was nothing more that she liked then to just be with her Kermie...in the theatre, or in the house. But not at the swamp. It was too murky and icky, and just plain out nasty in her opinion.

    "Uncle Kermit?" Robin asked, as Kermit was looking over the clipboard with Scooter. Kermit kneeled down and smiled.

    "Yes, Robin? What is it?" He said, a soft smile still evident on his face.

    "You're different." He said. Just a small statement, and Kermit really was made to think long and hard about it.

    "Well....um....uh...." Kermit stammered, trying to find the right words to tell his 5 year old nephew. "I died back there, Robin."

    "More like almost died, Chief." Scooter noted, looking down at them. Robin gasped softly, then he saw the white peeking out from under Scooter's yellow shirt, and he tugged at the small white scrap the poked out from it.

    "What happened to you, Scooter!?" He asked then, his eyes getting larger then ever.

    "Doc Hopper attacked me, Robin. He's a very bad man you know." Scooter said, looking towards the bus then, as Janice lifted her guitar into the back, leaning it against Dr. Teeth's portable keyboard. Kermit gave Scooter an odd look, and he shook his head. Kermit knew what he meant then, better to let Robin think Doc Hopper was truely a cruel man, and had attacked them, then try to explain that a demon of sorts attacked Scooter.

    Robin nodded, and frowned a little bit. "Never trust him, right Uncle Kermit?"

    "R-Right Robin. He's a very bad man. And know that he knows I have a very large family...we need to be very careful. Especially if he ever gets out of jail again.." Kermit said, standing up. He picked Robin up, and carried him over to the bus. "We need to get going guys, or we're going to miss the train to Hensonville."

    "Like...I still don't appreciate the idea of jacking our bus up on...like that stupid train, Kermit." Janice said both hands on her hips. She was frowning, looking at him.

    "Janice, you know it's the only way to get from Leland to Hensonville, and we can't leave the bus behind. Remember what happened last time?" Kermit said, with a firm tone on his voice.

    "Yeah, I know what happened green stuff. Someone stole it, and it was on eBay!" Floyd said with a smirk. "At least they gave it back to us, once we showed them the papers and all."

    "Rully...our bus was worth more then that, Floyd baby...." Janice said, smiling once more. She and the others were piling onto the bus, and settling down. "I liked the records more then these cds that are rully everywhere."

    "Let's just get going...." Kermit said, exhasperated. "I'd rather just get back to Manhattan as soon as possible..." He slumped down into the seat, with Piggy beside him, and he frowned softly.

    "What's wrong, moi cherie?" Piggy asked softly, as she stroked his head thoughtfully. "Is it because what happened back there? He's in jail now...he won't be bothering us anymore you know."

    Kermit nodded softly, then he leaned back against the seat, as the bus rumbled down the dusty old road heading out from Leland, to the train station. He sighed, and looked up at Miss Piggy for a moment. Nodding his head, he closed his eyes, and settled down for the trip on the bus, on the train.

    Scooter was checking stuff off on his clipboard, and he smiled, doodling a picture underneath all the checks and marks. It was of a girl, with red hair. The girl wasn't particularly beautiful, but she didn't look ugly either. She was wearing a pretty dress, her arms extended upwards. He smiled, looking at the picture again. Then he started to draw a stage around the girl, who in his picture, was dancing alone. He reached into his backpack, and pulled out some colored pencils, and started coloring it in. It was a beautiful picture, he thought. Gonzo and Fozzie were silently watching Scooter, from across the bus, as he colored and drew the picture on the paper.

    "He must have a girlfriend, Gonzo." Fozzie whispered to Gonzo, who just smiled.

    "I guess he does. Or...that's someone he likes at least." Gonzo whispered back. Scooter heard the whispering, and looked over. He saw them staring at him, and a bright blush crept along his cheeks.

    "Guys....it's...it's just a picture...she's....she's our guest for next week, that's all. This is just a set layout....of...uh...the song she's going to be doing." He stammered, he felt his face was hot, and he tried not to look directly at his friends. He knew they would mess around with him over it for awhile now.

    "But Kermit said we weren't doing any shows right now. It's the start of fall you know." Fozzie said, a slight naieve smile creeping across his face. "Too many people in school and everything."

    Scooter's face got hotter just then, and he knew he was blushing to beat a tomato now. "Oh...well....um..."

    Gonzo just laughed softly, and waved his hand at Scooter. "We're not gonna rib you just because you have a girlfriend, Scooter."

    "Guys! Don't say that!" He protested. It wasn't that he didnt' mind them knowing it, but he didn't want the world to know it...and he knew what was about to happen.

    "Rully now! You've got...like a girlfriend!?" Janice said, popping up from behind Scooter's seat.

    "Gofer's got a girlfriend! Bout time!!" Floyd said, laughing and smirking. He turned in his seat beside Janice and announced to the whole bus. "The gofer's got a girlfriend, guys!!"

    Scooter sank his seat, grumbling to himself. "...I've not even asked her out yet..and they're all saying she's my girlfriend now...just great..."

    The bus ride to the train station was light, and filled with happiness. And many ribs and praises to Scooter for finally getting the gusto to get a girlfriend. He tried to shut them up, but he figured it was no use in trying.

    This chapter was so cute sissy! I loved it! I especially liked the parts with the EM, nice to see them playing a larger role in this story. Looking forward to more! I suppose I should get back to my own story, shouldn't I? ;)

    <Giggles> Scooter's got a girl-friend... <giggles>

    Oh, by the way, Hi! I finally read all this. It's a great story. And, since this last chapter is freshest in my mind, let me just say that I love Kermit's comments to Robin. Kind of makes a nice little opening for my "Chasing Robin" story... Also love Animal eating his drum set. Reminds me of- "I WANT TO- EAT DRUMS! EAT DRUMS!" "No no, Animal, BEAT drums! BEAT drums!" And, I love the comments about the bus on e-bay. And, of course, Scooter's "girlfriend." <giggles.>

    More please!

    And yes, Beth, you SHOULD get back to your own story!

    Now that's more like it... Rully a great chapter with all the Muppet interaction on the bus ride to the train.
    Bit of foreshadowing with the drawing Scooter made on his clipboard? So, he's got a girlfriend, anyone we know?

    But the real gem in this chapter was Janice's lines about what happened to the bus the last time it was left behing. "It got stolen and sold on eBay."
    Double reference... To the buses that were on eBay claiming to be likenesses of the EM bus, when Ken was hunting down a likeness for the potential vehicular set for the figures...
    And it got stolen... The time we stole... er, borrowed it to go and er, rescue our favorite puppets at the warehouse.
    Fun times those were back when we got into the warehouse...

    Thanks, sissy. ;) I just felt like adding that part in, cause I always saw Scooter as a bit of a daydreamer sometimes. I mean, he's young ya know. And I could just see his clipboard filled with notes, and drawings and stuff.

    And yeah....YOU NEED TO GET BACK TO YOUR STORY SISTER!! AHH! XD J/K. But I'd love to see more of your story...also...dont' forget about later!

    Ooh, if anyone wants to talk to me live (hear my voice) get Google Talk from Google, and I'll be on there! my name is

    Chapter Fourteen

    The bus rolled off of the train easily, and they started down the road towards Hensonville. The first stop was the theatre, as they made their way into town. Another smaller car, dark blue in color, was right behind them, chugging along. The windows were up and tinted heavily. No one seemed to recoginze the car, as it kept right behind them.

    "Someone's following us, Kermit." Rowlf said, as he was looking out the back window, with Clifford beside him.

    "Yeah, they're really close, Kerm. Something's not right here. Should we stop?" He asked, turning back to look at Kermit. Kermit made his way to the back of bus, and even the windshield was tinted, so they couldn't see who was driving it.

    "No. Let's just get to the theatre. It'll be safer there." He said, as Dr. Teeth kept driving along, till they pulled into the theatre. Kermit was the first one off of the bus. The dark blue car pulled into the parking spot next to the bus, and stayed there, until the person driving cut their engine. It sounded like they were shuffling around inside, seemed like they were looking for something.

    Scooter followed Kermit, and was smiling in his mind. He had a good idea who it was, but he wasn't sure just yet. Kermit rapped on the window to the car, and was frowning.

    "Why have you been following us?" He asked to the person inside. The edge of the window cracked a little bit, and they could hear the person's voice clearly. It was female, but somewhat husky sounding.

    "You don't know who I am, Kermit?" The voice asked him.

    "No, I don't know who you are. Please, get out of that car, and tell us why you've followed us since we've gotten into town, or start that car up, and leave us." Kermit usually wasn't this forceful, but after what had happened eariler, he wasn't taking any chances at all.

    "Kermit...." The voice laughed a little, and then reached over to the other seat, and picked up a small bag of sorts. It opened the door to the car, causing both Kermit and Scooter to back up quickly. It...or rather, she stepped out of the car, and smiled. "You still don't know who I am?"

    Kermit looked at the woman. She was wearing black pants, and a black tshirt, which had the Muppets on the front of it. Her long brown hair was most of the way wrapped up in a black turban of sorts, and she had large sunglasses on. She had a deep tan as well, with no makeup on. Kermit frowned, looking at her from head to toe. He still didn't recoginize her.

    "I still don't know you. Who are you?!" He said, shouting then. The woman took off her turban, and her long brown hair, with chunks of burgandy red at the ends settled down across her shoulders. She smiled, and took off her sunglasses. She smiled at them, and laughed softly.

    Kermit's mouth gaped for a second, then he smiled. "..Sara!? What...you're definately different..."

    Piggy saw Kermit checking Sara, or so she thought, and she stormed off of the bus, frowning. "Keep away from my Kermie, you hussie!!" She stomped over to Sara and got between her and Kermit. "Keep away from him, or you'll meet my fist, darling."

    "I don't have any interest in vous frog, okay?" Sara said a bit haughtily, imitating Piggy, which just made her more mad, but only for a moment. When Piggy realized what she said, she smiled, and grasped Kermit in a crushing hug.

    "That's right. And let's keep it that way!" Piggy stated, smirking. Sara rolled her eyes, and looked over at Scooter. She placed her hands on her hips and huffed softly.

    Scooter looked at her for a moment, then tilted his head. "What?"

    "Don't 'what' what me buster! You forgot our date!!" She exclaimed, to which the bus just roared with cheers and laughter. Sara's head snapped to their direction, and they were still laughing happily. Scooter was turning red again. She looked at him, and her mouth fell open. "You never told them!?"

    "I...I just....I couldn't help it okay!" He said, shaking his head a little. "I'm...sorry, hun."

    Sara immediately dropped the false mad act with him. She knew if something had happened that he couldn't help, that was something big. Because he never forgot when they were going to do something together. "What happened Scooter? You weren't even at the boarding house...I called there, and they told me you had gone off to the swamps with Kermit!"

    "Yeah...I...it was only supposed to be for a couple of...days...but..." He wasn't sure what else to say. Sara just shook her head, smiling.

    "Don't worry 'bout it. You free right now?" She asked, smiling.

    "Um...yeah, I am...at least I think I am..." Scooter said, turning to Kermit, who had just wriggled out from Piggy's crushing hug. Kermit nodded for him to go ahead. "Yeah! I am. Where to?"

    "The coffee shop. Just get a cup of coffee and chat about what's happened to you. Come on, get in." Sara said, as she opened the driver's side to the car. Scooter got into the passengers' side, and they both closed their doors. Sara leaned out of the driver's side window, and smirked at Kermit.

    "When do you need him back, Boss?" Sara said, giggling. Scooter laughed at her saying that. "Hush, Scoot. Any time you need him back?"

    "No, take your time. We're not doing anything for at least another week." He said, smiling.

    "Oh, cool. Okay." She said, then she rolled up the windows, and started to back up, leaving the parking lot.

    Everyone was filing off of the bus then, and Rowlf turned to Kermit as they were walking into the theatre. "Scooter left his clipboard on the bus, Kermit."

    Kermit picked it out of Rowlf's paws, and looked at it. He saw the picture and he smiled. Fozzie walked over to Kermit and was frowning softly. "Kermit?" He asked.

    "Yeah, Fozzie?" He replied.

    "Do you think she's nice?" He asked softly.

    "Do I think who's nice, Fozzie?" Kermit said, a little absentmindly. He was already thinking about the skits and sets for the Winter Splendor show, which was going to be in a few months or so.

    "Sara. Do you think she's nice? I mean...for Scooter and all..." He said, sitting down on a chair beside Kermit, who was sitting on his stool.

    "Why would I think she's not nice, Fozzie? She's good for him I think. They like a lot of the same things too." He said, his mind still a little bit away from what they were talking about.

    "She followed us all the way here, in that....dark car and everything. And she let us think she was a bad person until you yelled at her, a second time...that's not nice." He said, remembering what she did only a few minutes before in the parking lot.

    Kermit stopped, and thought for a moment. It wasn't really nice, but then again, it was a little funny. To him at least. "She's big on pratical jokes, I guess. She loves comedy, so I guess she just decided she'd mess with us."

    "Oh." Fozzie stood up, and smiled. "I guess I should go praticate my monologue for the Winter Show, huh?"

    "If you want. You know it's not for a few months still." Kermit said, smiling as well.

    "Well, praticate makes perfect!" Fozzie said, as he went back to the dressing rooms to pick up his papers, to start praticating for it.

    Kermit just smiled, as he was looking at Scooter's clipboard. He wasn't really reading it, but rather looking at all the pictures. He really smiled, as he saw the last picture that the gofer had drawn, on the last page. It was a beautiful illustration of him and Sara, on what apperently was their wedding day. Kermit laughed softly.

    "He's got big dreams." He flipped the pages down, smiling. "They'll do great together, I know it."

    ...Someone beat me with rocks...please! I said originally when I started this story...that it WOULDN'T connect to "Sadie's Stories"

    And it has. :eek: I feel so stupid now. It's become the prequel!! It's like freaking Dark Crystal or something...I might write a better sequel then "A Grand Adventure in Life!" though...something that I don't have to get permission from Disney and Universal to do. XD

    So yeah. >< It's the prequel, completely attached to the "Sadie's Stories" line. And yes...it WILL be featured in the book version. As I'm not getting any closer to getting it ready for blessings, I might as well add as much as possible to get it good. You know what I mean? Yeah.

    Yes... That girl has much promise as an author/journalist reporting the events in Hensonville unfolding around her...
    Rully great chapter, think I'll leave it for others to comment on. But a laugh's there with the turban/dark car bit and Sara calling Kermit "boss".
  13. The Count

    The Count Moderator Staff Member

    *In Sal Manilla voice: No rocks hit ReneLouvier!!

    *Smiling and patting Sara on the shoulder... There, now it wasn't that hard to admit, was it? Besides, as a prequel, it compliments the other stories nicely. Just finish it up with however much more you want to add, and it'll be a great lead-in to the rest of the stories.
    And like I said, much promise is in that young girl.

    ReneeLouvier Active Member

    Thank you Ed. Wow...and at the end of this, you'll give me a huge overall commentage right? It's nearing it's end anyways. Maybe a couple more chapters, and it'll be done. I'm currently writing the next chapter as we speak too. So, glad to know you guys are loving this story.

    Yeah, I could see myself ribbing Scooter for him calling Kermit "Boss" "Chief" and stuff like that. XD I always thought that was just cute when he would call him that. :)

    Well, I love it! I think it's totally cool that you connected it to the stories and it's just awesome! I'm looking forward to more! And I'm excited that my frog self will now be in your book! This is so cool!

    Hehe, great chapter! i loved the selling the bus on ebay and the Sara pretending to be a stalker. And the whole thing was just so cute, i know I say that all the time, but it really is!

    And you just need to start having a message at the beggining of you stories saying "This story will definatley tie in with my other stories. If I say otherwise, ignore it!" And then you won't have to condem yourself to being hit with rocks. :)

    I have no idea how you write so fast, and so well, but I am sure glad you do! I'm thrilled you're still writing this story. I always look forward to your updates. You certainly enjoy torturing Scooter, don't you? We always hurt the ones we love. :)

    Loved all the muppety character interaction, particularly Kermit and Piggy, but I'm hoplessly biased in that regard. I'm looking forward to seeing where you're going with the rest of this story.
