A Hero’s Journey: Chapter Four, Part One: A Wintry Victory

At the same time that all of this was happening, there was a girl named Tall Cactus on Cryptids Island. The very day I had earned my powers, a family sword was passed down to her. For a while, she played around with it, then she completely forgot about it. It remained in the back of her closet until the day she moved to Game Show Island.

When she was packing, she cleaned out her closet and found the sword. Strangely, it hadn’t gathered dust in the several months it was there. Tall Cactus decided to keep it in case she needed it. Exactly one week after she arrived, the robots took over the island. She wished she hadn’t come, but it was too late now. One day while Tall Cactus was working, she said to her partner, “Do you ever wish you could go back in time and change something that happened?” The other worker replied, “Oh, yeah.” Tall Cactus said, “I hope the Power Force comes to save us soon.”

Meanwhile, in an undisclosed location…

Holmes: “Power Force? Please…”

???: “I thought the prophecy that foretold their coming was destroyed!”

Holmes: “Apparently it wasn’t.”

Back with Tall Cactus

Tall Cactus finished working and went home. After dinner, she started reading her favorite book. She got to the part where the main character made a plan to fight for her best friend’s freedom, and Tall Cactus got an idea. She called every single Poptropican on the island over to her house. After describing her plan, she said, “We strike tomorrow at noon.” The next day, Tall Cactus put her sword in her belt before she went to work. At noon, she whispered, “Time to strike.” Then she yelled, “Humans, STRIKE!” As if they were psychically linked, every single human left their workstations at the same time. A few robo-guards tried to stop them, but Tall Cactus slashed them with her sword. Then, EVERY SINGLE ROBOT ON THE ISLAND came after them. The humans were trapped!

Then, Tall Cactus, summoned immense courage and strength from somewhere deep inside her. Then she slashed the sword as much as she could, but it wasn’t enough. The robots just kept coming! Then she slashed right diagonally, then left diagonally, then straight down. then she lunged. When she lunged, she shot ice out of her hand and froze the robots.  Then she tried it again on all of the other robots. The victory was won, and then Tall Cactus transformed! She got a cape made of snowflakes, a crown and shoes made of ice, and a beautiful blue dress. She said, “I’m Snowflake, and I’m the winter spirit!” Then she created an ice trail to walk on and skated off.
