Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Fanfiction: Rudolph's Shiny New Year - 4. Chapter 4
Meanwhile, back at the North Pole…
“That’s it,” Puppy Paws decided for himself. “I’m going to help look for the Baby New Year. Then that’ll show everybody how responsible I am after I nearly wished Christmas away forever.”
There was just one thing he had to deal with or rather a couple of siblings to deal with. Drell and Hilda fell asleep on the guest couch as the warlock hugged his wife as they share a cuddle while they waited for the adventure group to come back from finding Happy. Puppy Paws crept by them before he left the workshop and let out a small yelp.
“Going somewhere, Puppy?” Noble asked his little brother.
“…Maybe?” Puppy Paws said bashfully.
“You’re not planning on sneaking out to help Happy, are you?” Jingle asked.
“…Maybe.” Puppy Paws then said as his tail went between his legs.
“That means yes,” Hope replied. “And I’m totally in!”
“Wait, what?” Puppy Paws asked.
“Hope?!” The other Santa Pups looked over at their sister from that.
“Aw, come on, you guys,” Hope replied. “Atticus, Cherry, Mo, Patch, and all those other people are taking too long! We’ll just use our magic to take us to wherever Happy is and get him back home.”
“Don’t you remember the last time we left the North Pole?” Charity asked.
“Well, yeah, but like that would happen again.” Hope smirked.
The Santa Pups looked at each other before they took Puppy Paws back at Santa’s workshop.
“Aw, come on, you guys!” Hope cried out. “Have a sense of adventure.”
Back in the island of 1023, Happy looked down at the happiest little house there ever was, where there was a teenage blonde girl shown as he came towards the house. Nobody had been home inside, but everything was neat as a pin. He was very hungry, there on the table, he spied three bowls of porridge.
“You lost, little guy?” The girl asked Happy as she saw him. “My name is Blondie Lockes, the daughter of Goldilocks.”
Happy waved at her before making his way to the bowls of porridge.
“Porridge is good…” Blondie smiled as she sat with Happy and ate some with him.
The first was a little too hot. The second, too cold. The third, just right.
“Why don’t you have a seat with me?” Blondie smiled at Happy. “Oh, you really are so cute.”
Happy smiled back before testing out the chairs. He tried to sit down to enjoy breakfast, but the first chair was too hard, the second, too soft, and the third chair, just right.
“Oh, I hope my very own Prince Charming is as adorable as you are.” Blondie smiled at the baby.
Happy smiled back as he reached for the bowl of porridge that he liked, only for the chair to break down and fall with him in it.
“Uh-oh…” Blondie frowned.
Whoever owned this house was not gonna like that.
“Let’s get you upstairs for a quick nap,” Blondie suggested as she picked up Happy to go upstairs. “I’m sure there’s a nice, cozy bed you can borrow.”
Meanwhile, just outside, the owners of the cottage were on their way back home. And where it was shown to be the family of the three bears. Yes, Happy had gone to a cottage with a family of three bears: there was the Papa Bear, the Mama Bear, and the Baby Bear.
“Someone’s been sitting in my chair!” Papa Bear glared.
“Someone’s been sitting in my chair!” Mama Bear added.
“Someone’s been sitting in my chair and it broke!” Baby Bear pouted. “They broke my chair!”
They then saw that their porridge had been touched.
“Somebody’s been tasting my porridge!” Papa Bear glared.
“Yeah, somebody’s been tastin’ my porridge.” Mama Bear added.
“Somebody ate mine all up!” Baby Bear piped up.
They soon went upstairs.
“Someone’s been sleeping in our beds!” Mama and Papa Bear cried out to see that their beds had been messed up.
“And mine too!” Baby Bear said before pulling back the covers to see Happy. “And there he is!”
“Well… Whatya know?” Papa Bear remarked.
Happy soon woke up from his nap.
“How sweet.” Mama Bear smiled.
“He’d make a nice friend!” Baby Bear added. “Do you wanna be my friend?”
Happy cooed from that as he saw the bear family.
“I wonder how he got inside?” Mama Bear smiled.
“We could play ‘Knights & Dragons’, you could be the knight, a crusader!” Baby Bear smiled at Happy. “Would you like that, huh?”
Happy smiled back as he began to feel loved. He had found a friend at last and that seemed to be the most important thing there was: making friends. Mama Bear was so happy that she teared up.
“Another mouth to feed?” Papa Bear asked, a little hesitant at first.
“Junior needs a friend.” Mama Bear smiled.
“Well, I don’t imagine he eats much; at least he likes porridge.” Papa Bear said.
Baby Bear took a hold of Happy as he brought him outside of the cottage.
The bear parents decided to watch this as Blondie stood by like a big sister around Baby Happy.
“I’ll be the dragon,” Baby Bear told Happy before he roared. “Now, you go ahead and slay me, not too hard though. Now you hit me, go ahead.”
Happy didn’t look like he was wanting to hit his new friend with the stick.
“It’s only a game, you know.” Baby Bear smiled.
“Go on…” Blondie told the baby. “It’s okay.”
Happy smiled to both of them before he used the stick to “slay” the bear cub.
“Oh! Oh! You got me!” Baby Bear cried out as he began to play “Dead”. “Now you can save the princess.”
“That’s me!” Blondie giggled as she played with them.
Happy soon went up to Blondie to “save” her.
“Oh, my hero~” Blondie beamed before giggling.
Happy smiled as he dropped the stick and hugged her leg.
“Aww…” Blondie giggled before she bent down a little to get him off before she gave him a small kiss on the cheek.
Happy smiled, blushing a little.
“Now you must dash off your helmet triumphantly.” Baby Bear then said.
Happy tilted his head, confused by that word.
“Oh, he wants you to take off your hat.” Blondie told the baby.
Happy then shook his head as he didn’t want to do that.
“But you have to, that’s how the game goes.” Blondie told Happy gently.
“Goodness! You’ve got to play the game right!” Baby Bear added while Happy whimpered nervously. “Well, what a fine friend you are.”
Happy didn’t want to lose his friend, but he realized when you play a game, you have to follow the rules. So, he removed his hat which exposed his big ears.
“Oh, dear…” Blondie frowned softly.
“Goodness! Look at that!” Baby Bear soon laughed with his parents.
“My, those sure are some big ears you have.” Blondie told Happy.
It was just like always as Happy shed a tear before putting his hat back on as he decided to leave the Three Bears.
“Oh, please come back,” Blondie told the baby as she followed him. “Nobody meant to be cruel!”
“Hey, come back! Come back!” Baby Bear called out. “You’re my friend! It’s dangerous out in the woods by yourself! Blondie Lockes, why is he leaving?” he then asked the teenage girl.
“I think you hurt his feelings, Baby Bear.” Blondie told him.
“I didn’t mean to.” Baby Bear frowned.
“I’m sure you didn’t.” Blondie soothed him.
Eon chuckled as he wasn’t too far away as Happy left Blondie Lockes and the Three Bears.
Meanwhile, the others were still calling out for Happy as they seemed to still have trouble looking for him.
“I guess on the plus side, Skeletor won’t be here to kidnap Happy.” Rodan said to the others.
“Yeah, that’s one less villain to deal with.” Patch said.
“Happy, wherever you are, please don’t hide!” Mo called out. “We wanna take you back home!”
“He’s got to be somewhere.” Rudolph frowned.
Eon laughed as he soon circled the skies.
“Please tell me that Crow can somehow turn himself into a bird and that is in no way Eon the Terrible.” Cherry said as they spotted the vulture in the sky.
“Unfortunately, that is Eon.” Atticus said.
“Oh, great, this birdbrain.” Cherry complained.
“Oh, not to worry, young son,” Eon smirked as he had Happy on his back as he flew off. “You’ll like living with me~… I’ll be your friend!”
“Oh, no!” Rudolph panicked before they rushed out of the Fairy Tale forest. “We can’t let them out of our sight! I hope Big Ben can swim fast!”
“We better hurry.” Mo said.
Good old Big Ben. He could swim almost as fast as Eon could fly. Almost.
“They’re getting away from us!” Phoebe cried out.
“Ben! Do something!” Rudolph told the whale.
“You bet your boots I will!” Big Ben replied. “Watch yourselves! Watch your heads now.”
Suddenly, water shot out of Big Ben’s spout which was a direct hit right at Eon which made him lose control of his flight, but this also made Baby Happy fall through the air as he got off of the vulture’s back.
“Oh, no!” Mo panicked.
“He fell off!” Rudolph cried out.
Phoebe took out her Right of Flight feather and she soon flew up in the air to catch Happy, and he soon used his hat like a parachute which made everybody cheer.
“Way to go, Bebe!” Thor smiled, proud of his little sister. “Now come back here so we can head back to the North Pole, huh?”
Phoebe was about to just that. However, before she could move, a huge gust of wind suddenly came out which seemed to be enough to blow her away with Happy. The wind soon blew the two out of sight.
“Oh, no! He’s lost again!” Rudolph cried out.
“And with my little sister!” Thor added.
“We have to follow after them.” Atticus said.
“Hurry now!” Cherry said. “We only have two days left!”
Eon left as he took off from that.
That old wind wafted off with Phoebe and the Baby New Year for more than a day, just as suddenly as it blew up, it blew away again. Phoebe and Happy both gasped as they saw a kite coming through the clouds.
“Where did you come from?” Phoebe wondered about the kite.
Her answer was going to be answered as they were going down to where the kite string was leading. The two soon came down from the string which belonged to a very important man, though they were still on an island.
“Well, hello there, little ones!” The man smiled at the baby boy and the young witchling. “I’m 1776, but my friends call me ‘Sev’! Will you be my friends?”
Happy happily cooed at the man who looked a lot like Benjamin Franklin.
“I think we could do that, sir.” Pheobe added.
“I don’t know who you two are or where you came from, but you’re both welcome to join our big Fourth of July celebration.” Sev smiled at them.
“What? But Sev, today is December 30th.” Phoebe told him.
“Oh, I’m sure that you think so, but not on this island!” Sev replied. “No siree! On this island, every day is the Fourth of July!”
“Wow…” Phoebe whispered to herself from that.
There was soon a tolling sound heard which got their attention.
“Come on!” Sev smiled to the two. “You’re just in time for the big parade!”
“Ooh.” Phoebe smiled back.
They soon left the meadow as they came to watch the Fourth of July parade to celebrate America’s legacy. There were even some fireworks at the parade.
