Trouble in Banjo

by Uday Ahuja

Once there befell a calamity on the kingdom of Banjo.

The kingdom got all its water from a fresh water stream. Suddenly, one day, the water in the stream started flowing so fast that even engineer boats going towards the mountains were pulled in the opposite direction, towards the dangerous waterfall.

This was the work of Rudy, the evil magician. After some time Rudy started a sacrifice which made the water current even stronger.  The people of Banjo were really scared. They did not know what to do, so, they went to the superhero Wizardafisardachisardashoo to ask  for his help.

Now our hero Shoo (short form) was not very far from Rudy’s sacrificial ground.  His magical emerald could show him events from the past. Through this Shoo found out that Rudy had cast a spell on the stream and was performing this sacrifice to make it even stronger. Soon the stream would swallow the whole kingdom of Banjo.

Shoo thought long and hard about how he could stop Rudy’s evil plan. Finally, he had an idea. He used his superpower and forced the stream into a tunnel. Rudy went to the end of the tunnel and waited at the opening to work his evil magic.

But the stream gushed out with such force, because of the spell that Rudy had put on it, that he himself got killed by it. As soon as Rudy was killed, his spell broke.  Shoo put the stream back into its position and its flow also became normal once again.

Thus, happiness returned to the kingdom of Banjo.
