Quest for Life Chapter 15Light swirled around them as they traversed the portal, tumbling over and over in midair. Ianitor’s voice echoed around them, “Souls gather around life like moths to a flame.” The same sentence echoed over and over again.“Oof,” gasped Marceline as she landed face first on the ground. She was about to get up when something, or rather someone, landed on top of her, legs draped over her shoulders. She recognised the familiar brown explorer boots.“Bonnie, not that this isn’t lovely but would you please get off me,” mumbled Marceline.“Sorry Marcy,” squeaked Princess Bubblegum, getting off the Vampire Queen and helping her up. Finn got up before helping Flame Princess up while Lady and Jake got up, looking around them.“Wow, just look at this place,” exclaimed Jake, gazing in wonder at everything around him. They were standing on the edge of a vast floating island covered in grass. Ahead of them stood a dense jungle w
Quest for Life Chapter 14“Yeah, I wanna go to the beach,” mumbled Princess Bubblegum.“Bonnie.”“That’s a lovely bikini, Mar.”“Bonnie, yo, Bonnie, wake up,” said Marceline, shaking Princess Bubblegum’s shoulders.“Mmm,” mumbled the Princess, opening her eyes sleepily, “Hey, Mar.”“You having dreams about me?” asked Marceline with a wink. Princess Bubblegum blushed.“Was I talking in my sleep again?” she asked. Marceline nodded, still smiling wickedly. “What did I say?”“Oh, just that you wanted to go to the beach,” replied Marceline, “And that I had a nice bikini.” Princess Bubblegum laughed. “Well, you do,” she smiled. Now was Marceline’s turn to blush.“You guys ready to go?” asked Finn, making them jump.“Yeah, we’re good to go,” replied Marceline.They climbed out of the rocky recess they’d spent the night in.
Quest for Life Chapter 13They had now been travelling for several days and each day brought new surprises. At one point the tunnel they followed led them to a wide chasm. Princess Bubblegum felt grateful for Lady’s presence as she flew them across. The chasm was so deep it made her dizzy just to look at it.Another day led them to a steep sided path that led along the side of a cliff. It was barely wide enough for them and they were forced to stand with their backs to the cliff, shimmying along slowly. At one point Jake’s foot slipped and for one terrifying moment he thought he was going to fall over the edge. Finn held out his sword and Jake managed to grab onto it before pulling himself back up. * * *“Wow, look at that,” said Marceline as she walked up the slope ahead. At the top the ground dropped away sharply into a perfectly round pit, “What do you suppose it is?”“It looks
Quest for Life Chapter 12Princess Bubblegum awoke several hours later with a stiff neck. It was hard to tell how long she had slept in this subterranean world. She rubbed at her neck as she sat up, cradling the Vampire Queen in her lap. Marceline smiled in her sleep, nuzzling the Princess’ stomach. She opened one eye and looked up at the bubblegum princess.“You ok?” she asked when she noticed the young woman’s discomfort.“Yeah, neck hurts a bit, that’s all,” replied Princess Bubblegum. Marceline smiled sympathetically at the Princess as she morphed into her vampire form. She massaged the Princess’ neck and shoulders gently while they waited for the others to wake up.Once the others woke up they set off again. As they went deeper into the depths of the earth the temperature rose more and more. Princess Bubblegum took off her hat and fanned herself with it.“I hope it doesn’t get much hotter than this,” she groaned.“I’m afraid it d
Quest for Life Chapter 11“Which way now?” asked Jake. They were standing on the edge of one of the great underground lakes.“We’ll have to cross this lake,” said Finn.“But how?” asked Jake, “It’s almost pitch black out there. Those strange crystals up there only give out so much light. We could end up flying around in circles.”“Not if we go there,” interjected Marceline, pointing out into the still blackness.“Where?” asked Jake, “That’s just water out there.”“Not quite,” replied Marceline, “There’s an island roughly in the centre. I can just about make it out.”“Great, we’ll go there then,” smiled Finn, “Lady, are you ready?”“나는 핀 항상 준비하고 있습니다,” replied Lady. She waited while the others climbed up onto her back before flying out over the lake. T
