Anime Lover- So glad you liked it! hope you enjoy this chapter!
On to the story!
We seemed to be in a small town. Except for the bright colors and triangles it looked completely normal. I could also tell we weren't in Japan or a European country because all the cars were driving on the-
"Hey!" Genta bellowed. "Why are all these cars going the wrong way?"
"I was just thinking about that," I said. "There are only a handful of countries where cars drive on the right hand side of the road."
"Yeah." Mitsuchiko agreed. "Most Asian and European countries drive on the left."
"So that only leaves one place we could be." I finished. "America."
"How are we going to talk to people here?" Ayumi wondered.
"You could translate, couldn't you Conan?" Mitsuchiko asked.
"Yeah." I said.
Suddenly I remembered something.
"But why don't we use these?" I stopped and pulled three small devices out of my bag. One end of each had and ear bud, and at the other end of an extremely thin wire there was a tiny microphone.
"Here, put these on," I said. "Dr. Agasa made them. You put this end into your ear. The wire goes around the back of your ear and stops by your mouth. It will translate everything we say and hear, and they should be almost invisible unless someone is looking for them. Dr. Agasa made them when my parents tried to take me to France, but we didn't get a chance to use them."
I handed one to Genta, Mitsuchiko, and Ayumi. Haibira and I didn't need them.
"We need to be careful Conan," Haibira said. The other kids were still trying to figure out the translators. "We don't know who might be here from the Black Organization."
"Yeah, but there's no point in scaring the kids."
"Hey Conan!" Genta Yelled. "Are you two coming?"
Ferb and I were sitting under the tree in our backyard like we normally do. Candice came out and started yelling at us as usual. I don't know why she gets so mad at us. We're just trying to have fun!
"Phineas and Ferb!" Candice yelled. "Mom's at her cooking class and Dad's... well I'm not sure what he's doing. Anyway, I'm in charge conditionally until my date with Jeremy, so don't bother me!"
"Okay," I said. "Go ahead and get ready for your date." She went inside.
"I really don't know what we're going to do today Ferb."
"You should make a portal gun. That's one of the best games ever!" Buford said as he walked into the backyard. He was carrying Bal Jeet under his arm, but that was fairly normal.
"I agree!"Bal Jeet said from under Buford's arm. "I've been playing co-op mode with him all day!"
"What? That was YOU?" Buford
Bal Jeet jumped out from under his arm started running with Buford close behind.
"A portal gun, huh?" I said "Hey Ferb, I know what we're going to do today!"
"Wait a minute." Bal Jeet said from behind the tree. "Where's Perry?"
Buford ran out and tackled him. Then we got to work. Ferb started on the portal gun, while we started on a fun house of puzzles to test it. Soon the Isabella and the Fireside Girls arrived and we started making some real progress. Soon the fun house was tall enough to be seen from the front yard.
"What's that?" Ayumi asked.
I looked and saw that she was referring to a tall building behind someone's house. And it seemed to be getting taller.
"I wanna see!" Genta Yelled.
"No, there's probably construction workers back there and back there and they probably don't want kids getting in the way," Mitsuchiko said.
"But there's a kid working on it." Ayumi said.
"What?" I asked.
She was right. There was a kid with red hair sitting on the building. I couldn't tell what he was doing.
"Now we at least need to go back to make sure he doesn't hurt himself." Haibira said.
"I say we go in and see what's going on." Genta Yelled.
He ran in the yard closely followed by Ayumi and Mitsuchiko. That wasn't like him. He normally hates running. Haibira and I followed. We entered the yard and were met with surprised stares of about a dozen children. They were working on some the building we saw from the front yard, and there wasn't an adult to be seen anywhere in the yard, though I suppose one someone could have been inside the house. Wherever they were, there was no way they didn't know about this.
"What are you doing?" I asked a girl who seemed to be in some type of uniform. She had light brown hair and was wearing glasses.
"We're working on our tearing holes in reality patches!" she said enthusiastically.
"Okaaayy," I said, now a little freaked out. "Who are these kids?"
This chapter's done! Yay! I hope you liked it! Sorry it took so long. School's really annoying. :(
