    Hey, this is rather good stuff. I think you have Mother nailed. I'm sorry I didn't get back to you with Father's full-name, at the time I was away from MC for a while.

    Oh, and I agree with everything that Christy said about Dog. Dog is one of the hardest characters to write because of the influence of Scooby-Doo. When I wrote his lines for Reunion Christy laughed at me because, seriously, they were so off Ted-speak. There was a time when Ted/Kevin was making a dictionary of Ted-speak, I don't know if he ever finished it?

    I'm intrigued by this story and think it's progressing nicely.

    That's fine Beau. That part where it says "Beau" it was spoused to be Christy saying your full name. Thanks I'll see what I can do with more of Ted speaking. Talk to ya'll later and I'll try my best to get the next chapter up soon.

    Here you go. The next chapter. Hope ya'll enjoy it.

    Chapter 3: The Beginning

    The next morning Christy was up and in the kitchen cooking some breakfast. There were eggs, toast, bacon, hash browns and some oatmeal too. She just loved to cook for her family. Cooking to her was like telling them that she loved them.

    “Breakfast is ready!” yelled Christy upstairs.

    “Ok mom. Coming.”

    “Ruff foruff rmeuff.” said Ted.

    “I’m coming dear. Can you help me with this tie? I hate these things. Don’t know why I wear them.”

    “It’s to make you look nice honey.” said Christy fixing his tie.

    They all sat down and ate breakfast. Vic slid some food to Ted off his plate. Boy did Ted love it. Well after breakfast was done and all Bo went off to work.

    “Bye dear. I don’t know what time I’ll be home but I’ll call or something.”

    “Bye honey. You have a good day. Bye.” said Christy kissing him good bye. “Ok little man you have to stay in your room today. You disobeyed me. You went into the Moore’s backyard when you weren’t spouse to.”

    “But you never told me that.” said Vic.

    “I know but you should have known. Sorry honey. Now on to your room and don’t come out till I say you can.”

    Vic just stood there on the front porch.

    “Young man, I said go to your room.”

    “Come on Ted. No one wants us around here.” said Vic climbing the stairs.

    Ted growled at Christy. “Growl!”

    “Don’t you even dare?”

    Ted and Vic ran up the stairs to his room.

    After a few hours past Christy went upstairs to check on Vic and Ted. When she got there Vic was asleep. Ted was at the end of the bed just waiting for Vic to wake up and play some more fetch. Christy coved Vic up and went on back down stairs. It was early in the evening Bo would be home soon. Just about that time Bo had pulled into the driveway.

    “Hey there.” said Christy opening the door. “So how was work?”

    “Fine. Harvey just couldn’t keep quite about the new secretary. Whoa! Have you seen our new secretary? He would ask. And I thought she might have been ugly or something. But man you should have seen…..” said Bo talking to Christy.

    “Huh hmmmm…” said Christy clearing her throat.

    “Sorry honey.” said Bo kissing his wife. “So what about your day?”

    “Let’s see. I sent Vic to his room. I washed dishes, did some bank statements and cleaned house. Oh and did some laundry. And that’s about it. One other thing I was going to do is talk to you about our son on what he did yesterday.”

    “What was it he did? What was it again?” said Bo sitting down.

    “He went next door to the Moore’s house. Remember?”

    “Uh Huh….” says Bo reading his newspaper.

    “Are you even listening to me?” asked Christy.

    “Uh Huh.”

    “Well I never!” said Christy as she stomped out of the room.

    “Did you say something dear?” asked Bo folding down his newspaper.

    Christy wasn’t there. She had just disappeared. Like uh witch.

    “Where did that woman go? I try and tell her something and she just vanished. Oh well."

    Bo gets up and fixes him some tea. On the other hand, Vic had not been asleep. He had fooled his mom into thinking he was asleep. So he climbed out the window and slid down the pole that held up the antenna. Now was a chance to go spend sometime with his friend. A knock was heard from the Moore’s house.

    “Who could that be?” asked Jenna as she opened the door. “Yes, can I help you?”

    “Yes. I am Vic. I’m here to play with Kyle.”

    “Vic who?”

    “Oh sorry. Vic Moppet.”

    “Oh you must be Christy and Bo’s son.”


    “Your parents?” Asked Jenna.

    “Who are you talking about?”

    “Your mom and dad.”

    “Oh yeah. Can I come in now?” asked Vic.

    “Sure. Kyle your friend is here.”

    Kyle came running down the stairs. “I didn’t know if you were coming. I’m so glad to see you.”

    “Whoa!” said Vic with a surprised look.

    “You house looks almost like mine. Just with a little miner detail.”

    “Come on. I have something I’ve wanted to show you.” said Kyle.

    “Ya’ll be careful now.” said Jenna.

    “Yes mom. “

    As Vic went to visit Kyle’s house Christy had finally gotten to where she was headed. The ABTO. The “Animal Being Tested On.” “Sir? Sir? Can I get some help here?”

    A young man came up to the desk. He was dressed in a uniform. Looking like a police but without the badge. A button down shirt with some blue jeans.

    “Sure I can help yea. What do you need?”

    “Well….gosh he’s cute! Shut up! I’m married. Just be quite!” said Christy talking to her pirate self.

    “Mama is everything alright?” asked the young man.

    “Yes. Everything is fine. I’m here about some neighbors of mine. I and my husband went to visit them or greet them into our neighborhood with a cake I had made. They gave us a tour which I loved their house but when we were taken down into their basement me and my husband saw some of the hideous stuff. Animals were being tested on down there. Wires and tubes and machines and all sorts of stuff. I can’t even imagine
    what they do to them poor animals. I just love animals and can’t stand to see them get hurt. Can you help me?” asked Christy with her hair all a mess.

    “Sure thing mama. Just let us know where these neighbors are at?” asked the young man getting a pencil and pad.

    “Ok.” said Christy.

    So Christy started at the very beginning. She gave them every detail they need to catch these creeps. As that was happened Vic and Kyle were down in the basement playing with all of Kyle’s toys.

    “So this is where your parents work.” said Vic.

    “Yep. Aren’t all of these toys nifty?” asked Kyle.

    “Boy is they. My parents don’t buy me much of anything. I seem to break all my stuff.”

    Kyle laughs a bit. “I could picture your room right now. Broken toys everywhere.”

    “So what is it your mom and dad do?” asked Vic.

    “I really don’t know but I just love these toys. I don’t know why all these toys are down here other then in my room but I don’t care.” said Kyle putting together a wooden train set. “Choo-choo-choo….”

    “I wished we had lots of money to buy me lots of toys.”

    “I really don’t know how my parents get me all these toys. We really don’t have any money.”

    Over at the Moppet’s house Bo was still looking for Christy. “Where could she have gotten off to? Maybe Vic knows something.”

    Bo heads upstairs to Vic’s room to ask him if he knew where his mom had gone. “Hey Vic? Where did your mothe…” Bo stopped dead in his tracks. Vic wasn’t in his room at all. Expect for Ted.

    “Now where had Vic gotten off to? Dog would you know?” asked Bo.

    Ted just sat up wagging his tail and panting. “I don’t know why I asked you. Oh that boy is going to be in big trouble. VIC MOPPET!” yelled Bo.

    Down in the basement/lab Vic thought he heard his dad calling him back home. “What?” asked Kyle.

    “I thought I heard my dad calling me. Oh wel….”

    Something caught Vic’s eye. Over in a corner of the basement there was a door but hidden. It was the same as the whole basement. But Vic could see some bright colored lights coming out from behind the door.

    “What’s that over there?”


    “That.” said Vic pointing over at the door.

    “Oh that. Nothing.”

    “It has to be something. I can see bright colored lights.”

    “My dad won’t let me go into there. So I stay away from it. Come on lets play some ball.”

    “I don’t want to. I want to see what is behind that door game.” said Vic getting up and walking over to the door.

    “We could get in big trouble. Haven’t you ever been in trouble before?”

    “Yea but I don’t care. I seem to talk my way out of it. Come on Kyle. Let’s be explores.”

    “Go right ahead. I’m not getting into trouble.”

    What could be behind that door? A big bright colored TV? A colored monster? Stay tuned for the next chapter.

    Here is the next chapter in the back story of the Moore family. Hope ya'll enjoy it.

    Chapter 4: The Beginning

    Vic proceeds over to the door. He opens the door. There he stood in a bright light of colors. He had never seen stuff like this ever. All those machines, wires and tubes everywhere. It looked like a cartoon of an evil scientist’s lab. Vic had heard about them in his comic books but never to his life ever thought would he see a real scientist’s lab. Some noises were coming from all over the lab. He then looked around and saw almost millions of animals of all sorts and sizes. What could they be there for?

    “Kyle? Come here. Look at all these animals.”


    “Animals! There are lots of them. All with doodads hooked to their heads. Wires and tubes all coming out the things on their heads. Come on!” said Vic screaming at the top of his lungs.

    “Ok. I’m coming.”

    As Kyle stepped through the door of that lab he couldn’t believe his eyes. He for one didn’t know his parents were doing this stuff on animals. He loved animals to death. He all his life wanted to help animals and wanted a pet all to himself. Now to see all these poor creatures being experimented on. Why were his parents doing this to these harmful animals? Kyle then ran up the stairs to his room. Vic then fallowed him up there too.

    “What’s wrong Kyle? Why are you crying?” asked Vic.

    “Those animals are being hurt down there.” said Kyle sniffing in between his words.

    “Don’t worry Kyle. We’ll save them. I…i…i…” said Vic who also started balling his eyes out.

    Both boys crying their eyes out but if only Kyle and Vic knew what was about to happen.

    “Come on Kyle. We need to pull ourselves together and help them animal’s escape.” said Vic.

    “I hear you Vic. We need to get them back into the wild again.”

    “But what if they can’t survive out there.”

    “Uh Vic. Aren’t we a wee to little to be worrying about that right now?”

    “Oh yea. Ha ha ha ha ha ha…..Then let’s go save our animal friends!”

    “Yeah!” said Kyle jumping up and down.

    Vic and Kyle run out to the tool shed to get some tools to help their animal friends escape.

    That’s when the ABTO showed up to the Moore’s house. All vamped out in their outfits and teargas guns and shields and helmets too.

    “Which house it is?” asked one of the troops.

    “It’s the house with the large rocket sticking out the back of their house.” said Christy in an ABTO outfit.

    “Oh yea.”

    “Then let’s get them!!” said Christy all in command.

    Every one of the guys starts bursting though doors, windows and the ceiling. They start smashing lamps, windows, TVs you name it. They smashed everything. There wasn’t even a working light in this house anymore. The poor Moores didn’t have a clue what was going on.

    “Why are ya’ll damaging my house? What is wrong with you people? Do ya’ll just go into other houses and smash everything you can get your hands on.” asked Max.

    “Uh sorry sir, this woman said here that you were operating on animals.”

    “It’s true. Look down in the basement.” said a voice in the shadows.

    “I recognized that voice.” said Jenna.

    The silhouette of the figure stepped into the light. It was none other then…

    “Christy?” asked Max and Jenna.

    “How could you do this to us?” asked Jenna.

    “I loved animals and I couldn’t see ya’ll hurt these poor defenseless creatures.”

    “But we too love these animals with all our hearts.” said Max. “We didn’t want to hurt them we were just trying to help with our own experiment.”

    “Yea you have to believe us.” said Jenna.

    “Sorry sir. We have to arrest you and your wife. Ya’ll will have to come with us to the station.” said the General of the troops of ABTO.

    “But our son….” said Jenna.

    “Men I want everyone to search this whole house for their son.”

    “Yes sir!” said the troops.

    Still no sign of their son. He couldn’t have been long ways off. He and Vic were going to the tool shed for some tools to help free their animal friends who they had just meet. I guess being kids it takes a while.

    “Sorry. We couldn’t find him anywhere.” said one of the troops.

    “Well then we’ll have to leave. Ok everyone pack up and lets go out for some drinks tonight. On me.” said the General.

    “Come on sir. You too mama. We have strict orders to lead you two down to the police station. Come on let’s go.”

    “But sir. Ya’ll can’t just leave their son out there all alone.” said Christy.

    “Do you have any relatives around these parts we can call to come and pick him up?” asked the police officer.

    “No. We didn’t stay in touch with our anyone because we were trying to start a new life.” said Max with a look on his face that he had failed again. “Sorry son. We tried to start a new life of our own but didn’t make it.” said Max as the police man closed the door on the car.

    “Oh by the way. We’ll be coming back soon for the animals soon mama.” said one of the Animal patrol guys.

    “Thanks again. We couldn’t have done it without you.” says one of the guys slapping Christy on the back.

    Both cars drive away and down the street. There stood Christy with the look on her face that no woman had ever looked before. She was stunned. She had made the biggest mistake of her life. She had just made a family of three who was trying their best to start a new life and she broke them up. How could she stand her self.

    “Look at what you have done.” said a voice from inside her head.

    “Shut up!”

    “You have now made a poor boy homeless.”

    “I said SHUT UP! I don’t want to hear it.”

    Christy Moppet could not stand herself at the moment and wanted to just die. How was she going to tell the the boy next door that his mom and dad our in jail? About that time that’s when Vic and Kyle came running through the back gate into the front yard about to free their buddies.

    “What happened to my house? Where are my mom and dad?” asked Kyle with a frightening look on his face.

    “Mom? Mom? Are you ok mom?” asked Vic holding a saw.

    What will happened next? Will Kyle ever find out that his parents were sent to jail because of Vic’s mom or will it never be reviled to Kyle. Wait and see for the next chapter or the next Fan Fic of the Moore’s Back Story.

    Some good stuff here buddy. Generally just waiting to see where this cliffhanger leads to.
    BTW: The line/plot about saving their animal friends because they like animals very much... That wouldn't be a reference to this other story about a certain street I happen to know of?
    Keep posting more when you can... We wanna know what happened next.

    Hey! This is awesome stuff. Did I tell you that you have Father down perfectly? Becuase you do. It's perhaps the best Father I've read aside from when I write him myself...Seriously! And you have the other characters in well.

    And the story is brillient, I love how everything fits together! And I had no idea that it was Mother that brought down the Moore household! Shocker!

    I am most intrigued.
