*Fire and ash explodes within the bowels of the volcano, as immense pressure proceeds to build with each passing second. And yet, as the fires churn and burn this does not halt the activities of a rather persistent sharptooth, little Chomper was determined to catch the dragonfly by any means. As Chomper remains preoccupied in this barren, molten wasteland, with burning pits in every direction, the Trimaxian Adventure Crew, along with Littlefoot and his friends, finally arrived in their search to recover their lost friend.*
Littlefoot: *Calls out* Chomper!
Ducky: *Calls out* Chomper!
Isaac: *Coughs* Ugh, there's too much sulfer and ash in the air. I can hardly breathe!
Johnny: This is definitely not a healthy place to play in.
Justin: That leaves one question. Where could Chomper be?
Bonnie: Oh, I hope he's okay.
Logan: Bonnie, scan the area for any other life forms.
*Bonnie’s eyes begin to glow and high resolution beams pierce along the ground, the android scans the ground for a trace of their lost friend. Through her perspective, we take not that she’s not only scanning for foot prints along the ground but also thermal readings and among other reliable sources for tracking. But with the heat stemming off the volcano, it was not going to be easy.*
Bonnie: *Mid-scanning* The readings are all over the place. It's so hot out here that I can't get a lock on Chomper.
Troy: *Looks around* It's this volcanic activity. It's generating too much heat, leaving the entire ground covered in thermal radiation.
Popeye: That 't'ain't the halfs of it! Look! *Points up*
*All at once, a large explosion causes the ground to rumble. All eyes turn toward the volcano, the smoke towering higher into the sky. The lava begins to bubble and erupt along its sides, with multiple explosions ignited by the intense pressure.*
Justin: The volcano is about ready to explode. In a few minutes from now, this whole ground will be covered with molten lava!
Littlefoot: I-I think we better look for Chomper someplace safer.
Johnny: Now that's a plan I can agree with. As far as today goes, I don't think I can handle any more surprises.
*The groups proceed to slowly turn around away from the volcano, when suddenly they stand in shock at the two creatures they hoped to never bump into. Ozzy & Strut, the Struthiomimus pair standing before the group, had eyes on the group as if they were looking at an all-you-can-eat breakfast serving.*
Ozzy: *Menacingly* Leaving? So soon? But you haven’t had your baths. *Stalks the group*
Petrie: Me no need bath. Me take one just yesterday!
Logan: *Annoyed* Ugh… Look, we don't have time for you losers. So beat it!
Ozzy: *Shakes his head* Oh no, no, no, no, no! First you spoil our dinner plans on a number of occasions and then you nearly get us killed! Twice! I’m afraid we’re not letting you off the hook that easily. *Grabbed by the neck by Popeye* AAACCCKKK!!!
Popeye: *Holds Ozzy to his face* Maybe Logans wasn't clear foirst time! BEAT IT, ya brainless, buld toirky! *Hurls Ozzy to the ground*
Troy: Jeez, you guys just never learn, do you? You really want to mess with us, after what happened the last time?
Bonnie: You two shouldn't even be here! Can't you see that this volcano is going to blow?!
Strut: *Raises an eyebrow* Vol-ca-no?
Bonnie: *Rolls her eyes* Right, dinosaurs. Almost forgot.
Justin: You need to leave. NOW!
Ozzy: We’re not going anywhere until we make those brats pay for spoiling our supper!
Isaac: Are you really so stupid that you'll risk burning to death just so you can get back at a bunch of kids for interrupting your lunch? Jeez, get a life already!!
Loki: *Growls, translates* Seriously!
Cera: You smelly old Egg-Stealers better watch it!
Johnny: Yeah. *Pulls out his mallet* You don’t want to have another talk with good old “Mr. Mallet" again, do you?
Strut: *Gulps, hides his head* I still haven’t recovered from the last blows on my head.
Cera: *Steps in* Not only that, but it just so happens, we’re friends with a very mean Sharptooth!
*Meanwhile, Chomper was just about close to finally capturing the Dragonfly. Suddenly, Chomper starts when he hears a familiar set of voices somewhere on this barren land. He turns around and he hears the voices of Logan and Littlefoot, along with their friends, with the voices of the two egg thieves from their previous encounter. And by the sounds of it, Chomper assumed the group was in trouble.*
Ozzy: *Off-screen* Sharpteeth don’t have friends!
Logan: *Off-screen* That’s where you’re wrong.
*Chirping anxiously, Chomper cautiously approaches the group afraid something bad might happen. Little did he know, Logan and the others were holding their own with the Struthiomimus surprisingly well and the only problem they had was the stupidity of their enemies.*
Ozzy: If a Sharptooth’s your friend, prove it!
Troy: Hey, I’m a Sharptooth, aren’t I? And these guys are my friends. Heck, two of them even have sharp teeth! Is that proof enough for you? As for that big Sharptooth from before, I can summon him with just a snap of my claws, and you two are lunch meat.
Strut: *To Ozzy* Ozzy, you saw what Troy was able to bring to the Valley! That’s good enough for me.
Cera: *Steps in* Boy, are you dumb! That scary shadow wasn’t a big Sharptooth. *Smug* It was just a baby.
Logan & Littlefoot: Cera!
Cera: I mean… Oops!
*The explosion from the volcano grows fierce in the background, lava and smoke spouted through the gaping mouth of the fiery mountain top. The sky began to rain fire & ash as the group looked on. For at this moment, it meant doom for both the Trimaxian Adventure Crew as well as Littlefoot & his friends for not only did they find themselves confronted by the Struthiomimus pair but now an active volcano has caught them in between.*
Isaac: I think that’s our cue to get out of here!
*However, neither one was able to take one foot off the ground, before the earth began to shake. The ground rumbled and shook in a violent fashion, the shaking caused the two thieves to finally acknowledge the volcano and what they saw made them scream. Fire balls exploded from the volcano’s jaws, bouncing across the rocky surface as everyone froze and watched. The thieves panicked at the sight and tumbled into each other, rolling backwards down the hill barely missing a ball of flames that bounced along their location.*
Troy: Guys, this whole area is going up in flames. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting the heck out of here! *Runs away*
Logan: Troy, wait up! *Pursues Troy*
Littlefoot: But what about Chomper?
Justin: We cannot look for him here. We need to leave now!
Logan: *Calls out* Justin’s right! If we’re lucky, Chomper will have done the same! Now, COME ON!!!
Cera: *Shouts* Hurry!
*Suddenly, just as the group finally took off, the volcano exploded and a pool of lava dripped down its mouth rapidly approaching the tiny band. Logan, Littlefoot & their friends ran down the hill, the younger children screaming in panic. They sped off as fast as they could while coughing the smoke out of their lungs. Behind them, as the lava slid down the rocky mountain, the plants and dead trees caught in its path burst in flames before disintegrating into the extremely hot pool. As they ran, Ducky lost her hold on Spike's tail and crashed against the floor.*
*As Ducky slowly pushed herself off the ground, she screamed at the sight before her eyes. The lava was rapidly catching up to the ground, burning plants wherever it slid and Ducky was just inches away from suffering the same fate. As she froze in fright, Bonnie turns back & sees Ducky staring at the approaching lava spill. Clicking her heels, she zooms back towards Ducky and manages to land by her side before the lava got closer.*
Bonnie: *Lowers her hands* Ducky, come on!
*Without a moment’s rest, Ducky leapt into Bonnie’s hands as she once more clicked her heels & took off into the sky just as the lava swept beneath them. The group ran until they stopped before a ravine with a tree leaning against the edge, just as Bonnie landed beside her teammates. Lowering Ducky to the ground, the young swimmer approached the ravine and took note not only of how far down it was to the ground but how wide a jump they’d have to make just to get across.*
Isaac: Great! I am really starting to hate deep ravines right now!
Justin: And this one's too wide to jump.
Bonnie: Don’t worry, I can fly us across.
Troy: *Looks to the side* We won’t have to. *Points* There’s a pathway that goes straight down along the mountain. It will be safer and faster this way!
Logan: All right, let’s go!
*Logan leads the others along the pathway, when suddenly the egg thieves land right in front of them halting the group in their tracks. The kids screamed, while the Trimaxian Adventure Crew stood in front of them in defense.*
Popeye: Gimme a breaks!
Logan: What part of “BEAT IT” do you two peanut brains not understand?!
Ozzy: *Irritated* I’ve had it with you little sap-suckers!
*Strut chuckles sinisterly as the brothers prepare to strike. Suddenly, Strut heard a loud chomp & felt severe pain on his backside causing him to yell out in pain. The two Struthiomimus turn around & discover Chomper, his jaws tight around Strut’s tail, of course they were not amused. The moment Chomper saw Logan, Littlefoot & the others a smile formed across his face as the group were pleased to see their little buddy safe.*
*As the children cheered, Chomper rushes toward the group hugging Littlefoot with his little arms as everyone gathered around him.*
Bonnie: Oh, thank god you're okay!
Petrie: Chomper, you back!
Ducky: Oh, Chomper!
Littlefoot: Chomper, I’m so glad you came back!
Logan: We knew you’d get away safely!
Isaac: Never doubted that for a second.
Ozzy: That’s it! No more fooling around!!
Johnny: *Turns to Ozzy & Strut* You guys still here? Get lost!
Troy: Come on, you two! Look, maybe I pulled a few too many tricks on you back then. But Strut, you wouldn’t hurt us… Not your old buddy.
Strut: Sorry, Troy. I like you, but family comes first!
Troy: *Eyes widen* Oh my god, they’re serious.
Logan: Doesn't matter if they're serious or not, we still outnumber them.
Isaac: That and they're idiots.
*Whatever the case, the two Struthiomimus had their claws ready to swipe as they stalked the group with sinister smiles upon their face. The Trimaxian Adventure Crew slowly lowered their arms to retrieve their gear, ready to defend the children should the thieves get too close. As Littlefoot stood with uncertainty, looking from the approaching Egg Thieves and the lava slowly getting closer, he took note of the tree dangling along the edge. Suddenly, he recalled a previous conversation he had with his Grandfather.*
Littlefoot: *Groans, slumps down* Aw, I hate being little.
Grandpa Longneck: Don’t worry, you’ll be grown up soon enough.
*In that moment, Littlefoot realizes what his Grandfather meant to tell him what true size was all about. Knowing that he had to act like a leader for his friends, Littlefoot stared with a look of determination. He bounds toward the tree causing the others to turn around & witness their little friend press against the tree with great force, knocking it down till the front end hit the ledge along the other side creating a bridge.*
Littlefoot: *Calls out* Quick! Across the tree!
Logan: *Smiles* Good thinking, Littlefoot! *To the others* You guys go on ahead. I'll stall the lava.*Rushes toward the lava, aims his keyblade* Haven't used this in a while... Blizzard!
*Suddenly, a beam of white light shaped like a snowflake hits against the lava. The magic freezes a bit of the lava, slowly cooling it down into igneous rock, and allowing the group to make their way to the tree, with Littlefoot the first one to cross. The brothers, particularly Strut, were shocked by the power this strange creature possessed.*
Strut: *Gasps* Ozzy! That stick of his is magic!!
Ozzy: Doesn’t matter! The fool should never turn his back on us!
*But as Ozzy and Strut made their way to ambush Logan, who was too focus on cooling the lava, Popeye suddenly bounced right in front of the pair.*
Popeye: If ya tinks I’m gonna miss out on some reel fightin’, I’d have bought tis for nothin’! *Holds out a can of spinach*
Ozzy: What is that?
*But rather than answer, Popeye pours the contents down his open jaws, munching the spinach leaves in his mouth before hurling the can over the ravine. After a few seconds, Popeye swallows the contents and briefly turns into a muscular ‘Ape-Man’ version of himself beating his chest while bellowing out a cry as the brothers stood with eyes wide in fright.*
Ozzy & Strut: *Simultaneously* Uh-oh.
Logan: *Looks to Popeye* Popeye, remember: Your world’s rules of physics don’t apply here.
Popeye: Not ta worries, I ain’ts gonna hoirts him bad; just enough to knock ‘em silly!
*Popeye then leaps toward the two brothers, neither one fast enough to dodge. Grabbing Strut around the neck and Ozzy around the waist with his arms, he twirls around the ground going faster and faster till he forms a tiny tornado. Having had enough, Popeye hurls the two from his grips and the pair comically hit the mountain side. Popeye then grips Ozzy by the throat then bashes him in the face, then reels his shoulder till it hits Strut, who stood behind him. Popeye slugs forward then backward, Ozzy then Strut, eventually going faster and faster giving the group plenty of time to get across to safety.*
Logan: *Looks at the slowly hardening lava* Things I do for children.
Bonnie: Logan, come on!
Logan: No, make sure the kids get across first. I’ll meet you later.
Justin: Surely you can’t freeze ALL that lava!
Logan: I’m not trying to, but I can at least buy some time!
Justin: *Nods understandingly, to the kids* All right, kids. You heard, Logan! Everyone get across!
*The children don’t hesitate to trek across the bridge. Chomper hastily once across, while Cera follows close behind with Petrie riding along her back. However, as she looks down, she pauses a bit and starts crossing slowly her fear of heights shown across her face. As Logan manages to reduce some of the lava to molten rock, the rest spills down the ravine while Cera continues to cross. Suddenly, the roots start to shake loose from the ground and Cera nearly loses her balance, screaming in fright. Cera manages to grab onto the log and pull herself off as the lava pours to the surface below. Finally, Cera manages to get herself & Petrie across rejoining the others. Littlefoot looks over to see only four figures, minus the thieves, still on the other hand: Logan; who was still freezing the lava, Popeye; who kept the thieves occupied with his punches, and Ducky & Spike; the last children still yet to cross.*
Logan: *Ceases the Blizzard spell* That should be enough. *Heads for the log, turns back to Popeye* Popeye, come on!
*Popeye was literally butting Ozzy & Strut’s heads against each other when he heard Logan call. He releases the brothers, who slumped to the ground & groaned in pain but obviously still alive.*
Popeye: Boy, arr tay gonna be sore in da mornin’!
*Popeye rushes off to join up with Logan, who’s already halfway across. As the two make their way over the log, Littlefoot calls out to Ducky & Spike.*
Littlefoot: Ducky, Spike! Come on!
Ducky: *Nervously* Spike, I am afraid.
*Spike, somehow understanding Ducky’s concern, lifts her onto his back with his jaws. As Ducky rides along Spike, he slowly makes his way along the log just as the lava managed to reach the end.*
Littlefoot: You can do it!
*Finally, as Spike carried Ducky to safety, the two brothers recovered quick enough to see the children & the others make their escape. Strut attempts to break for the log, when Ozzy holds him back.*
Ozzy: *To Strut* I’m first! I’m always first!
*Ozzy makes a run across the log, when he feels the bridge start to tip. He turns around and to his horror, the lava made contact with the end of the tree slowly bursting it into flames. The group could only watch as the flames rapidly approach Ozzy, who tried to run.*
Johnny: *Waves a hand* Happy landings!
*All at once, the flames sent the tree tumbling to the bottom of the ravine, Ozzy’s screams echo as his brother watches him fall.*
Strut: *Calls out* Ozzy, wait for me!
*Strut makes a daring leap to regroup with his brother, screaming at the top of his lungs until his echo fades while the lava continues to spill along the ravine. The group look down to see if the Struthiomimus made it, but the smoke bellowing from the lava made it difficult to see.*
Bonnie: Oh my god, are they dead?!
Troy: Oh, I hope not! *Calls down* Ozzy! Strut!!
Loki: *Growls, translates* You sure get soft around those two, don’t you?
Troy: They may be dirty, rotten thieves but even they don’t deserve this! *Pause* Well, maybe Ozzy, but DEFINITELY not Strut! *Calms down* GUYS!!!!
Justin: *Holds Troy back* Forget it, Troy. They’re gone.
Troy: No… Oh no.
Johnny: Huh… Suddenly I’m starting to miss my two favorite comic relief villains in this world.
Cera: *Looks down* If this were a game, I’d never want to play it again.
Troy: *To Cera* You’re completely heartless!
*Suddenly, a pair of roars caused the group to turn & what they saw before them made them gasp. Looming above them, standing taller than the highest mountain was a pair of fierce-looking Tyrannosaurs or as the kids called them ‘Sharpteeth’.*
