At Peach’s reassurance, Bowser growled, turning toward the window— or rather, turning his head since the rest of his body was fastened into place. How could that getbetter? In the course of a few hours, the carpet had been pulled from under him, and he felt like a helpless turtle on his back. “Hmph!… Just hurry up and drive. How long till we get there!?” So irate was the mighty King Koopa that even the gentle tones of the lovely Ms. Toadstool prompted a negative reaction. She had been absolutely right: he needed a vacation. He frowned her away, almost apologetically, realizing who he was yelling at… but didn’t actually offer it up.
It’d all be okay once they got out of the Kingdom…
Upon one loud exhale from the sleeping Oga, Bowser lost his temper. One breath, and he whisked his large claw to the back, smashing the guard’s head into the seat behind him. “NO SNORING!” Time moved so slowly in that car ride— what might have been fifteen minutes seemed like an eternity.
So, when they finally reached the airport, Koopa literally toppled out the car. Impatient and lacking grace, he cratered, landing stomach first onto the ground the second the car had rolled to a near-stop. It was there he laid, succumbed to defeat. A tense palm dragged itself across his face— now he was clumsily making a fool of himself in front of Peach! Maybe all koopas were naturally stupid! MAYBE— One calm exhale ended his mental tirade.
Once they got out the kingdom, everything would be okay…
The tyrant rose to his feet as if that hadn’t happen, quickly dusting himself off. “Alright, let’s go! No side-trips! I’m getting on the plane!” Blissfully unaware of how the real world works— or, rather that they’d probably need ticket, Bowser elected to skip over the building’s exterior, instead walking toward several docked planes, on the area where the parking lot suddenly became a run-way.
“Sonnuva—!” Oga met a rude awakening from the beginning of what would be some sweet R & R, in the form of a scaly orange palm smashing into his face. Easily with enough force to make it ache as it was sinking into the back seat’s interior. Smacking at the Koopa’s hand, that did leave a mark as his face was now a light pink from pained warmth. Thankfully, the younger was snoozing the entire time through.
Finally reaching their destination, Oga had nearly stampeded out of the car in a pissed off frenzy. He was carrying just about all the luggage while having Baby Beel riding on top of his head as the icing on all of the weight. “God, did you really have to try leaning the friggin’ seat back!? You almost crushed me back there!” The delinquent yelled after Bowser, screw the niceness for now! That almost cost him his legs!
“Ohhhh just you wait..” Still, he couldn’t forget what the man had to handle in complete sorrow. It was then; an excellent makeshift idea had come to mind. Trotting right up beside Bowser, now matching his pace, his eyes gazed up in a knowing gesture. “So, the boss lady told me over there you needed to relax. So, you’re lucky I came a lil prepared. Read it n’ weep.” After a small readjustment, one of the suitcases was wrenched open, revealing a god like aroma and an even more sizzling sight.
An entire suitcase of Luther Vandross Burgers. All piping hot and ready for devouring.
Don’t even bother to question how he kept them all hot and in decent shape up to this point. Even Beel’s pacifier dropped from his mouth, thankfully into Oga’s pocket at the sight. The older male carefully kept the suitcase held up in his arms while the rest dragged behind him. God Peach was possible gonna kill him for this. As he picked up one of the delectable burgers, he could already hear the black entity of Luther whispering words of encouragement in his ear. He held the suitcase Bowser’s way.
All it took was one bite, for space, time and everything in between to appear before Oga’s eyes all at once. He recognized the truth. He joined the leagues of the enlightened. The entire universe seemed so simple and in the palm of his hand right now.
Holy shit this burger was so fucking good.
Wait.. was his heart..
Yeah. It truly was time for a vacation. Oga’s vision had transcended into pure white.
