Chapter 11 - Another Elemental Hunter
Crunch and Rok-ko walked along a sandy shores, as the sun was slowly rising. They both thought about what their next adventure will be "So where do you think Wa-wa will be?" Crunch asked the mask "What? Why bother with that water lump? He's even more grumpy than Py-ro!" "Well we have to gather all the elementals though, or else Crimzon will... so it's best if we try and get them at all." "Oh yah you're right! Well Wa-wa... should be umm... I really don't know!" Rok-ko said, Crunch growled and turned... he was completely stumped, "Well we better get some rest then, we'll try tracking him down at night... or Lo-lo" Crunch said, he headed over to some shrubs and long grass, and lay down "What are you going to do then Rok-ko? Since you masks obviously don't sleep..." "oh I guess I can just keep an eye out around here! ya never know who may pass by ehh!" "hmm good idea, just wake me up if you see any of the elementals or intruders kay?" "Yeah of course!" Rok-ko replied... Crunch was soon asleep, and rather well hidden...
Rok-ko soon got bored, as the first five hours passed "Man this is lame, at times like this I wish I could just sleep mah self!" Rok-ko said with a sigh, he then got up and floated around "hmm I'm sure Crunch wouldn't mind If I had a bit of a nosey around the island!" Rok-ko thought, he then flew around his surroundings, the nearby village wasn't too far at all nether, and he saw that Py-ro had left the volcano too, and that the volcano has stopped bursting out molten lava as well "Heh looks like ol Py-ro has left... and wait... who the hell is that?" said Rok-ko, as he peered over towards the sea, he saw a strange looking boat, moving at quick speeds. towards the islands seashores "heh I better go and check out this joker, looks like she or he is here for something!" Rok-ko moved in closer to the newcomer, he leapt out of his boat... it was Dingodile! He looked rather spooked and serious "Ahhh darnit! That Fire mask thing isn't here anymore! Cricky, looks like I've ought to make a quick dash from here then" he said to himself, Rok-kos jaw dropped "Who is that freak? And why's he lookin for Py-ro? Hmm this is some seeeerious business!" he headed down right behind Dingodile as he was turning to get back into the boat "Hey you donkey! What ya looking for Py-ro for ehh?" Rok-ko yelled, Dingodile turned "Who ya calling Donkey.... YIKES! not another mask!!!" Dingodile screamed, and he quickly grasped out his flame thrower "Whoa take it easy man!" I was just asking a question! And ya know where another mask is?" "Oh course but mate, ya masks aint to be trusted! And I've heard about ya, you're the Earth mask that's meant to be annoying ehh? And not to mention the weakest!" Dingodile said, still holding his flame thrower at Rok-ko "WHAT! I am not weak! Me and Crunch are..." "CRUNCH? That's IT MATE! you keep ya hands off me mates right now!" Dingodile yelled, Rok-ko gasped and quickly flew back to Crunch "CRUNCH HELP!" he yelled, but no one answered but Dingodile "You free Crunch right now you crook!" Dingodile kept firing his flames into the air, narrowly missing Rok-ko each time "Sheesh this dude has gone mad! Me and Crunch are a teeeam!" he said as he got closer to Crunch "Crunch get up!!!" but Crunch didn't even move, possibly because Rok-ko was too high, or simply cause bandicoots are just hard to wake! Dingodile soon got close and stopped firing at Rok-ko up in the skies, he noticed Crunch "CRICKY OH NO! THE MASK KILLED HIM!" Dingodile screamed, Rok-ko just sighed "what an idiot..." Dingodile ran up to Crunch and then shook him madly, "NooooOoooooOooo! How could this have happened!!!" Crunch quickly woke and snarled at Dingodile, Dingodile yelled "WHAT THE FLAMIN' HELL!?" And Crunch punched him so quickly, that he didn't even think about checking to see who it was! Dingodile flung out of the bushes and landed on the sand, Crunch then shook his head a few times and started to wake back into his normal state...
"Man what just happened!!!" he yelled, Rok-ko quickly came down from the sky "I can explain! I can!" "I was completely freaked and I don't even know who I just attacked!" Crunch got up to go and see who it was and to his surprise, he saw Dingodile laying there in the sand, fazed from the attack "WHAT! Dingodile! Oh man, I didn't mean to attack him! What was he doing anyway?" "Well uhh.. that donkey was searching for Py-ro for some reason and then he noticed me and uhh thought I was evil! And then when I mentioned you, he thought I had held you hostage, so he chased me and when he saw you sleeping in the bushes, he should you were dead and then he tried to wake you and... it happened!" Rok-ko told Crunch, Dingodile slowly got up "And I am NOT a flamin' Donkey!" "Hey Dingodile, sorry about the punch back then... I usually am hard to wake and I can sometimes attack without warning if woken like that!" Crunch told Dingodile "Argh my head! well I shall keep that in mind then next time, mate!" Rok-ko then came to the scene where Crunch and Dingodile stood "So what's yer name then?" he asked "Oh mah name is Dingodile, half Dingo half Crocodile! So you see? I'M NOT a DONKEY!" "Whoa man soooorry! Well good to meet ya anyways, Dingodile!" Crunch then asked "So Dingodile... you know where another Elemental mask is? Rok-ko told me you said you knew..." "Oh yeah mate, there's this mask by the name of Wa-wa who's been giving me a lot of trouble lately! Why are you trying to find these fellas anyway?" Dingodile asked "Well I need them all so I can use their powers to try and stop Crimzon Demoness..." "Crimzon Demoness? Who the heck is that?" "She's some Demoness that seems to want me and the elementals to join her forces, in turning the world into a place of darkness, I obviously refused and she gave me a week to make up my mind, or else she'll take out all my friends... I'm not entirely sure how powerful she is, but from what I've seen so far, she is quite serious..." Dingodile gasped "EKK! I don't wanna get killed by her! or turned into a zombie or whatever she plans to do! Right ok! I'll take you with me to go and meet Wa-wa... Sheesh Wa-wa is so annoying! He also seems to have a problem with the fire mask too, so I was going to try and get him to distract Wa-wa away from my land!" Rok-ko then butted in "Oh so that's why you wanted ol Py-ro ehh? heh heh, yah it's true! Both Py-ro and Wa-wa always fight, cause Py-ro thinks he's the strongest elemental, but Wa-wa always taunts him on how he's able to put out fire!" Rok-ko explain, Crunch smirked "Silly masks. Guess they're not called Ele-mentals for one reason then! Right, lets go with Dingodile to meet up with the element of Water then!" the bandicoot, mask and dingo-crocodile all headed to the boat, and quickly drove off towards their next destination.
