Infamous Chapter 7
Shortly after being invited into the frog's beach shack home, Manic and Clipsy had described their plight to her over some kool-aid and cookies. Naturally, Splash was willing to believe to long time friends and even offered to let them stay with her until "the heat cooled down."
Being somewhat naive teenagers, they thought that after a few days everyone would forget about the whole deal.
Where they ever wrong.
"Hey guys, I've got another gig tonight!" Splash called as she hung up her cell phone. Her friends had been staying with her for about a week now, keeping themselves indoors to avoid being spotted.
"That's great! Where's it at?" Clipsy asked as she walked out of Splash's own room where she'd been staying with her.
"Some fancy mansion in the next town over. Nice place." The frog replied as she started mixing some pancake batter for breakfast. It was just after eight o'clock in the morning.
"Cool! Manic, did you hear that?" Clipsy asked, but got no response and p

"Where to now?" Manic kicked an empty soda can along the lonely dirt path that took himself and Clipsy farther away from Station Square.
"Who knows? I'm not sure how much I trust most of our 'friends'." Clipsy's face fell a tad bit.
"I've known them for years!" Manic protested.
"Do you think they'd even hesitate to stab you in the back if it meant any amount of money?"
For a moment, Manic closed his eyes and bit his lower lip in thought. Partly trying to think of a way to admit she was right without really admitting he'd been wrong.
"Okay, you got me. The only ones who would have stuck with me have either 'gone goodie' on me or they're right next to me."
There, a slight compliment should keep her from putting it in his face that she was right.
"I'd say the 'gone goodies' would have believed us, but I'm pretty sure they all left the area. The others would just hand us in for hope of a reward."
"They'd be more likely to hand us over to that lizard guy we met yesterday,

Have you ever had a sleepless or near sleepless night? Where all you did was toss and turn, perhaps even worry about life?
That's about how Clipsy's night at Shi's was. She tried hard to sleep, knowing that it could be awhile until she got a chance to sleep in a bed again.
At first, she'd fallen asleep just fine. Then not long after, a nightmare involving being caught for the robbery that she hadn't done caused her to sit straight up with her eyes wide open.
She felt unable to blink and wanted to cry. She didn't really know why, but tears formed in the corners of her eyes. Hopefully, by tomorrow the adventure would seem fun again, but for now, it was terrifying.
She glanced around the room, the darkness seemed to get darker, if that was possible. Slowly creeping closer to her.
She almost had to bite her tongue to keep from screaming. How stupid was that? Nothing was even there. She repeated this to herself over and over again but it did no good.
And that is very clos
Infamous Chapter 4
"WHAT DO YA MEAN YA LOST 'UM?!?" Chief the bulldog banged his fist down on his desk.
"I-I'm s-s-sorry, Boss." Slime nervously wrung his tail in his hands, not daring to look down for fear that the Boss would follow his gaze and discover that he'd manage to injure his foot as well.
The Boss sighed and leaned back in his large chair.
"Have they found out about the robbery yet?" He asked as he rubbed his forehead.
"I sorta...Kinda..." Here Slime stopped and gulped. "T-told um about it..."
"You WHAT?!?" The dog stood to his full height, and from that day forward Slime swore up and down fire was shooting from his eyes.
"I-I-I DIDN'T ES'PECT UM TO GET AWAY!" The lizard pleaded his case. "I thought, ya know, it wouldn't do any harm..."
"Well it DID do harm, stupid!" Chief fell back in his seat and scowled. "Be gone from my sight, you worthless lizard. And don't come back until you do something RIGHT!"
"Y-yes, sir." The lizard stuttered as he opened the door to leave.
