A/N: Hello avid readers. Thank you for taking a peak at this story. Like me, I'm sure you're all super bummed about there only being 3 seasons. There must be more! Well here's a little tale where the story continues, where Heylin hounds, evil sisters, jealous rivals, sadistic serpents, crazy love and of course Xiaolin action ensues! And, since Chase Young is one of the best villains ever made, and riaXkim seems to be a major pairing, there will action involving both. And Jack Spicer..? That kid, so funny. Well, maybe he'll show up, maybe he won't! I hope you enjoy the first episode:
Episode 1: The New Monks
The sight was excruciating.
All he could do was look at his mug in the mirror.
"WHAT DID YOU PUNKS DO TO MY BEAUTIFUL FACE!"
Clay, Omi and Kimiko dashed passed the bathroom doorway, laughing like a bunch of jerks who just wrote permanent marker all over their leader's face.
"Oh dear, we let the feline into the sack!" Omi giggled.
"That's "cat out of the bag", you little runt! Years of training with you and you STILL can't say phrases right!" Raimundo sped after the little pranksters.
"Aw, c'mon partner, we were just messin' with ya." Clay explained, once Raimundo had backed them up into a corner.
"This is going to take forever to get off!" He whined.
"Well, I think it's an improvement." Kimiko commented with a smirk. Rai gave her a dirty glare.
"Now now, young monks, what seems to be all the yelling?"
"Master Fung, look at my money maker; look at what they did to me!"
"It is not in my transgression to discipline them, Raimuno; or did you already forget your level compared to there's?"
Raimundo grinned evilly. "Oh yeaahhhh…" He turned his attention to the cowering monks. "Since it'll take me ALL morning to clean this off, you guys get to do my part of the chores today."
The monks began to protest when Fung left them to their bickering. When he was finally gone, they encircled Raimundo so he could hear their hushed voices.
"Rai, you know why we did it!" Kimiko carped.
"Yeah, you went to that party last night, even after we told you not to!" Clay pointed out.
"What would Master Fung think if he knew you, the leader to probably the most important Xiaolin monks ever, was messing around like this?" Omi asked.
"Hey, first of all, we're the only Xiaolin monks. Second, I gotta take a break once and a while; being a leader has been rough! Besides, what old Master Fung doesn't know won't hurt him."
"I'm afraid your mistaken," A chill ran up Raimundo's spine when he heard Master Fung's voice.
"I-I am?" Raimundo gave a nervous chuckle to his master.
"Yes. You are very wrong. You see, you are not the only Xiaolin monks."
"Say what?" Raimundo stammered.
"M-master Fung, what ever are you saying?"
"The basic elements of a Xiaolin warrior involves that of the four you all possess, particularly. However, there are other elements in the universe that can be used to stop evil, or be a part of it."
"So, there are others? How come we have never knew about them?"
"They were not necessary to begin in your conquest against evil. And unlike you four when you started, they were not ready."
"Master Fung! I got the letter from Master Monk Guan at last!" The overweight Dojo slithered into the room, with a giant scroll over his head. Master Fung picked it up and began reading to himself.
"Ah, it seems that they are ready now." Fung spoke aloud. "It seems as though your fiasco today allowed me to introduce the situation properly, young monks."
"Are we gonna get more monks down in here?"
"If you mean "up in here", then yes, Omi, I believe so."
"Not that I'm concerned about these monks being more powerful than me or anything, but why now?" Omi insisted.
"Because there is a great disturbance within the remaining Shen Gong Wu that have not been located yet. Tell me, do you remember when and what the last Shen Gong Wu was that you retrieved?"
"Why yes I do: it was the Wick of Illusion, last month!" Omi announced.
"Wow, it's already been a whole month? That's never happened before, has it?"
"I'm afraid you're right, Clay." Fung assured him.
"Since that last Wu," Mojo explained, "Every time I feel an activated Wu, it's been a dud. The scroll reveals nothing."
"I believe an evil force is the author of this mischief." Fung continued.
"It must be Chase Young!" Omi furrowed his brows. "He is the only one who could be powerful enough to be doing such a thing!"
"But why would Chase want to hide Shen Gong Wu from us? He has never cared about the Wu." Kimiko enlightened.
"Well, it's not Wuya, since Chase used the Seal of Miatsu on her; all her powers are stripped." Raimundo reminded them.
"It can't be Jack either, we haven't seen that cowardly little prairie dog in a long time!" said Clay.
"Don't count anyone out, young monks. Starting tomorrow, you will begin this quest, with suitable help, I can assure you."
"Oh, who else is suitable to call themselves Xiaolin monks?" Omi's eyes lighted up to the question.
"You will find out tomorrow, young monks, when the night and day have settled in this temple." Then Fung left.
"Whaddyah think that means?" Clay asked his fellow monks.
"We will see tomorrow, just as Fung has told us." Omi said calmly, his arms foldes in his sleeves. "OH I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THESE LITTLE MONKS! I'm sure they will be most pleased to be training under me!"
"Dude, you are still a shrimp, nobody is small enough to be training 'under' you." Raimundo teased. "Besides, I'm the leader, I'll probably be training them more. Sheesh, that's all I need: some more responsibility on my plate."
Omi darted a vile glare in Raimundo's direction, and Kimiko noticed it. "Now now you two, we can all train the monks. I'm sure they'll be just as ill-prepared as we all were when we started!"
"You mean as ill-prepared as you, Clay and Raimundo were when you started. Especially you, Kimiko, because you're a-"
Kimiko grabbed Omi's long neck, causing him to suddenly have difficulty speaking. "Omi, you're not as cute as you used to be, even though you're still a little brat! If you say, "because you're a girl," I'm gonna have to remind you of the tortures involving my element!"
It had been two and a half years since Raimundo was made Shoku warrior, the leader of the monks. Evil remained rampant, and Shen Gong Wu were still being revealed here and there, and showdowns were still being practiced. The "young Monks" were nearly reaching adulthood now. Within the last two years, Katnappe retired from Shen Gong Wu hunting in order to go become a famous thief for stealing famous pieces of art. That fat ninja guy went on a subway diet and never looked back towards the Heylin side. Chase used the Shen Gong Wu known as Seal of Miatsu to conceal Wuya from her dark powers, and hid the Wu somewhere she would never find it, making any other Wu she stumbled upon useless. And no one had seen Jack Spicer, the "evil teen genius" in over a year now.
"I-it was only a joke, Kimi! You know I don't really discriminate by gender, but by power!" Omi choked. Then Kimiko dropped him.
"That's what I thought."
"Well, whoever the little guys are gonna be, I can't wait to meet 'em! Hey, what if one of 'em is Jermaine?" thought Clay.
"Nah, he's too old, dude. If these monks are just getting ready to join us, just as Master Fung pointed out, they gotta at least be the age we were when we started."
: ) )))))- pppppppp
"EEEK JAKU, YOU'RE SO SEXY!" One of the girls screamed.
"Yes, yes, I appreciate all of your deep, passionate descriptions of me, ladies, but I'm afraid I must depart. My master is calling." Then Jaku winked one of his blue eyes at the girls that caused them to scream even louder.
"Peh, kids these days," a passing old monk moped, "They need some kind of idol to squeal and excite over, like that Justin Barber lad."
Jaku made his way down the long hallway until he finally reached the main room of the temple. His two fellow monks were already standing there, in front of the pedestal that Master Monk Guan was on.
In the last year and a half, Guan had established a school for young students who wanted to become monks within his temple. He got the idea after the Xiaolin monks had been sent to his temple to train; since he enjoyed teaching them so much, he decided to continue lecturing after they had left. He and a few other monks got together and formed the teaching establishment known as: Master Monk Guan's School of Monk Mastery. Creative, yes.
"Ah, Jaku, at last you arrive." Guan noted with sarcasm. "I was certain the sharks had eaten you this time."
"Forgive me, Master, I have no excuse for being late. It was my own judgment of time that allowed me to slip in so late on such an important day."
"Suck up!" The boy to Jaku's right coughed.
"Arko, that comment is unnecessary!" Guan frowned.
"S-sorry Master. But just because he's a smooth talker he thinks he can get away with anything." Arko griped.
"Well, perhaps he can. And if he is a smooth talker, as you say, I don't see why he doesn't exhume that gift more. It is never a problem to become more talented in what you are good at."
"But it is a problem if you focus only your gifts and not on what it is you lack." The girl to Jaku's left spoke.
"That is also, true, Rika. It seems I have taught you three well. However, we are all here today to reveal who will be destined to join the four Xiaolin monks in their quest against evil."
The three monks, Jaku, Arko and Rika, stood straight in perfect posture as they awaited their news.
"You have all done exceptionally well! This decision has been made by the five wise monks and I, who have seen your potentials, your strengths, and weaknesses. You have all trained all your lives, and prepared for this moment! Now, The one to receive this important duty will be…"
Their expressions did not change, but deep down the teenagers were quite anxious.
"Jaku and Rika!"
Arko's mouth dropped.
"YES!" Jaku raised a fist, then attempted to recover himself. "I mean, thank you, Master."
Rika just smiled to herself, concealing all her joy within her.
Arko. Was. Furious.
"MASTER!" He belted out. "I-I do not question your judgement, b-b-but why them? And I thought you said only ONE of us would join the monks!"
"Ah, I never said only one of you would be going."
"B-b-but why these two? I mean, Player and silent pants? COME ON!"
"That is enough, Arko! This is the final decision. I expected a more mature reaction from you, of all people!"
Arko paused. The room went silent for a moment. "Y-you're right. I should be happy for my fellow companions." He turned to them and bowed, then Jaku and Rika did the same.
"Very good." Guan reviewed. "Rika, Jaku, you two may go prepare your things for your trip." They bowed to their master before they left Arko.
"Arko, you are one of the best monks I have ever trained."
"You do not need to lie to make feel better, Guan."
"That's master Guan to you! And I did not say that to ease your pain, it's true!"
"Then why the hell am I not going?"
"Because, you still need training in the area of your Wudai element. Your martial art skills are like none that I have seen since the time of Dashi, however your element is… dangerous. You need more time to control it, and I'm afraid evil will not wait."
Arko's fists tightened on either side of him. Despite his feelings, he nonchalantly bowed to his master. "I understand." Was all he said before he too left the room. Guan sighed to himself. He knew Arko was furious, but he had made the right decision.
-00000000 ppppp 00000000000000000000
"Whoo-hoo! Can you believe it, Rika? At last, we gone kick some real evil booty, along side the famous, great Xiaolin warriors of the four elements!"
"Do not get so excited, my friend. This entails great responsibility. It will be more than just fame and power."
"Aw, you always gotta say something wise." He carped as he lifted his baggage over his shoulder. "Ready to go?"
The two monks strolled on the path leaving their familiar temple. All of Jaku's fan girls were halted by the fron gate, saying their goodbyes.
"WE LOVE YOU, JAKUUU!"
"Don't forget to write all of your heroic stories to us!"
"Hey, does Rika get to go with you? TAKE ME WITH YOU!"
"It's not fair! I won't let you fall in love with anyone else on your trip, Jaku!"
The girls continued to squeal and holler, despite Rika's discomfort. Jaku, obviously, was one of the most sought after boys in the academy. Not only did he possess a Wudai element, but he was one of the best when iit came to fighting and quite the social butterfly, and incredibly handsome to boot.
"Farewell my loved ones! I will miss you all, and look forward to your fan mail! It's been such a joy spending my days here with all of you!" Then he blew a kiss in the air to them before they finally exited the temple.
Rika rolled her eyes. "You don't look very upset about leaving them." She realized, scrutinizing the grin on his face.
"I'm not. Wherever I go, I'm sure I'll be able to make even more gorgeous fan girls!" He raised his fists up in the air, then turned to look at her.
"Besides, for the time being, I've got your pretty face for company, Rika!"
She scoffed. "Fool! I'm not one of your desperate followers like those chicks who get easily distracted!" She snapped.
Jaku chuckled. "You know I'm just messing with you, Ri-Ri. You and I have been friends since we were babies, so I could never possibly see you as a girl."
Rika waited for him to retort his answer, but he just kept walking.
"Gee, thanks." She finally answered. "I would hate to be considered a girl, ever." Her sarcasm continued.
"That's right, you're a Xiaolin warrior now, like me." He stated proudly. "But you know, you could any guy you wanted to, if you were to cut that "everybody's inferior to me because they don't train as hard" attitude of yours. It's okay to act like a teenager once and a while, you know."
"Hmph, acting in such a way would make me look weak to my enemies. I will refute such behavior, and focus my training. Which you should try doing more often. I almost can't believe you were chosen over Arko."
"Ouch, I know we're best friends and all, but how bout using some more euphemism in your words, eh?"
"Hey, do you think any of the Xiaolin monks will be cute girls?"
Rika sighed in aggravation. "I don't know, Jaku. I really don't know."
000000000000 tttttt 0000 oooooooooo oooo o
"Stupid, stupid, STUPID!" Arko thought aloud to himself. He had wandered into the forest, punching trunks and crushing rocks. "I don't understand, WHY? It has been my life mission! And he gave it away to that flirt and girl! It's… IT'S NOT FAIR!"
"My, my, it seems I've stumbled upon quite a predicament, haven't I?"
"Who's there? Show yourself!" Arko whirled around the forest, attempting to find the voice with the southern accent.
"My dear boy, I have no reason to hide from you." A grey bird, with red and black feathers, soared over Arko, and perched itself on a low branch in fornt of him. There was a bean sitting on top of it's head.
"You seem to have been treated quite unfairly." The bean spoke. All Arko could do was stare. "Someone with your gift should not be wasting his talent in this academy with these losers. You should be expressing your marvelous powers to the world!"
Arko still couldn't get over the fact the bean was talking to him. Then it hit Arko like a ton of bricks. "Your Hannibal Bean!"
"Bingo, pleasure to meet yah, son."
Arko busted out laughing.
"Might I inquire as to what is so funny, son?" Bean attempted to keep himself composed.
"Your ACTUALLY A BEAN! Master monk Guan told about you; he said you were pure evil in carnet. But I didn't think you were actually just a bean!" Arko kept laughing.
With the last straw, Bean pulled out the Moby-Morpher to transform into his giant, dark-armored form.
"That better for you, son?"
Arko's cackles settled. "Forgive me; yes, that's much better."
"You got quite the maniacal chuckle their, son. It's almost as if evil is beckoning you."
"Look, I'm interested, okay? Master told me about what you did to Chase Young, and what you have tried to do over and over again these last 1500 years. I'm not going to be tricked by you!"
"Boy, I ain't trying to trick. I'm just going to come out clean and say you should be on the Heylin side. I don't even need your powers for anything, it just disgusts me to see your gifts being wasted."
"They're not wasted! I will become a Xiaolin warrior!"
"Oh, you mean like those two idiots were? Let's be real, son, it seems as though Guan's decision was made based on other things besides power."
"What do you mean?"
"With your skills, I would have picked you in a second! But Guan seems to favor the more popular students, doesn't he? Think about it; nobody in that academy has trained longer and harder than you, yet he still chose that weak girl and jock boy. He must hate you to have chosen them over you in such an important choice."
Arko didn't speak. He had felt the same way. This bean had managed to express all that was on liitle Arko's mind.
"Chase Young was also betrayed by Guan." Bean continued. "Chase sought to work along side his friend, Guan, but Guan only sought to be stronger and better than him. That's why Chase left the side of good, not because I influenced him in anyway." The armored Bean pulled out a bowl of hot soup; the skins of a dragon were dangling on the edge of the bowl. "I just helped him get what he truly wanted. Now look at Chase Young: He's immortal, still a pretty boy, one of the most feared and powerful villains in the universe, and he doesn't have to answer to anyone. No one can match his awesome power, even Guan had been defeated by Chase a few times."
Arko looked down at the infamous Dao Long Wong Soup. He knew what it's contents entailed, and it was beckoning to him.
"I won't make you decide now, but if you should ever require this soup-"
Arko swiped the bowl out of Bean's clutches. He inhaled the soup, without any hesitation. Bean grinned as Arko's transformation began. The Boy staggered around, holding onto his neck as if the inside of his throat was on fire. Suddenly he felt his whole body set a blaze as it morphed into a terrible, beastily form. Arko stood on all four limbs, his claws coming out, his eyes lit up like a starry sky, and face molded into a long, pointed nose. His new hound features resembled that of the god Anubis, then he howled out in his accomplished form.
"Excellent." Bean's evil plan had worked. "Now, son, where to begin?"
" " The beast informed Bean, then Arko took off to complete his new evil plans.
A crow was sitting nearby, and it's eyes were possessed by another. Somebody who knew he had to take action, and fast, before Bean ruined all of his plans of world domination.
"It seems as though Bean has made the first move."
"That boy has fallen to the darkness, so perhaps he can be of use to us."
"No. He was recruited by Hannibal Bean. We will only suffice to his help if he asks us, but in the meantime, I don't trust him."
"Then what shall we do? The monks are growing stronger, especially now that they have more allies joining them."
Chase Young smirked at the comment. "We will see about those two, Wuya. Perhaps they can help us split the monks apart, forever."
To BE CONTINUED
Hola! I hope you truly enjoyed this first chapter of my Xiaolin Showdown story! Sorry if there was a lot of talking, but I wanted to introduce the new charcters and get back in the flow of writing about our favorite Xiaolin monks. There will be more action, love drama and stuff in the next chapter! I kind of wanted this to be just a romance story (where X characters fall in love), but I will have to make this like my idea for a season 4 of Xiaolin as well. You see, I recently watched it all over again, and it got my creative juices flowing, so I have so many ideas! As I'm sure lots of people do. Please tell me what you think and what you would like to see in this story. I already have tons of ideas, so I won't hit writer's block anytime soon. I'll update asap once I hear from you loving readers!
The meaning behind the names:
Jaku= timid, silent
Rika= Powerful, strong ruler
Their names are completely opposite to their personalities! Which is why I used them :3
I drew a picture of what Jaku and Rika look like, I'll have it posted on my deviant art and the link for it in the next chapter.
Thank you again for reading! You rock!
