"Sharky! I fell in a well again!", shouted Poor Man.
"Ugh", moaned Sharky.
The Next Day. "Sharky! The house is on fire!".
"Ugh", moaned Sharky.
The Next Day. "Sharky! The toilet is clogged up".
"WHAT! REALLY!?", shouted Sharky, "Elephant, can you get that?".
"Ok Sharky", said Elephant, "Oh, whoops. Sharky, I'm stuck in a well again!".
Yep, Sharky's life is pretty busy. Maybe it's about time he got a break. Well, I wouldn't call it that, but Sharky was on a regular day. He just finished hauling Poor Man and Elephant out of the well. "Really! I didn't even know we had a well!", shouted Sharky, "Well, here we go, now I'm going to go outside to cuss".
"Have fun", said Poor Man, "Hey, Elephant, want to know what Sharky did at that christmas party?".
Sharky stormed outside. "God! I hate my life! Last week I got attacked by every member of the bird family, and now I'm learning we got a well in the attic! What's next, me getting kidnapped by a bunch of bats!".
And, speak of the devil, a swarm of bats came and shoved Sharky in a bag, flying away. The bats flew across the island right to a cave. The bats set down the bag, and Sharky slid out. "AH!", shouted Sharky, "Can I ever get a break!".
"The future is not your problem", said a voice, "It is how you deal with the present time that got you into this, misfortunate situation".
Then, from the shadows, came The Masked Shadow himself. "Hey you! You kidnapped us and attempted to throw Poor Man into the sun!", shouted Sharky, "I got a bone to pick off of you!".
"Anger gets you nowhere", said the Masked Shadow, then in a blink of the eye, he was behind Sharky and knocked him down, "Only failure, and what does that give you. More anger".
"Let me go, you Masked Creeper!".
"You landed a giant christmas candy on me! I think we are even, don't you?".
"Look, tell your little vampires to fly me back home, I got a job to do".
"And I can get someone to do that job".
Sharky looked back. "What do you mean?".
"I can give you a replacement, and he will guide Poor Man and teach him the differences of right or wrong".
The Masked Shadow then opened a cage, and out came another version of Sharky. Except his skin tone is darker, and he has red eyes. "Wow, amazing what you find in Craig's list", said Sharky, "Look, I'm going home. My programs are on tonight".
"Suit yourself", said The Masked Shadow, "Darky, get him. But be warned, I want him alive".
"Yes SIR!", shouted Darky, "I WILL get YOU Sharky, and I will MAKE Poor Man do MY master's BIDDINGS!".
"Say it, don't spray it", said sharky.
"I can SPRAY and not SAY whatever I WANT!".
"What are you going to do to me, you're pretty much me".
Darky then tossed a rock in the sky and broke it into pieces with his head. "That's going to be your SKULL!".
"I don't have a skull, but that cage does look pretty cozy".
Sharky then ran inside the cage and closed the gate. "Remember, Poor Man is allergic to mushrooms!".
"I'll FEED him MUSHROOMS!", said Darky, "I'm ON my WAY!".
Darky then ran out of the cave, but shortly came walking back. "I NEED a RIDE!".
