- Song from the intro of Alice: Madness Returns
"Bring the horse into the city, and we shall decide what to do with it!" My past father, King Priam, called triumphantly, overcome with joy. My past self, on the other hand, was completely terrified. "No, father, you musn't! You musn't! Troy will burn if you bring it in! Father, please!" I wailed, clinging to his arm as my past-self used to when she was little. Suddenly, Priam caught on fire as he said in a bone-chilling, rattling voice, "Noooothing will haaaaappen, Cassaaaandra. We have defeeeeeated the-" Neoptolemus had killed him before he could finish the sentence, and all of Troy had caught fire, and it began to change shape. Now, I could recognize it in horror as Bakugan city! Greek soldiers were slaughtering men and abducting women and abusing children as the beautiful city burned. The guardian bakugan of Neoptolemus, a Serpenoid, was slowing taking my master's life as it coiled around him, and I was stuck dragging my master's partner and very close friend away from his dying companion, and poor Dan was screaming, "DRAGOOOOOO!" As Bakugan city floated away in the distance, and then I caught on fire myself, starting with my long, shiny black hair, and I screamed and screamed and screamed.

I woke up with a start. I was sitting upright on my bed, which seemed to feel like brick at that moment, and looked down at my roomate, who was drawing a picture of her dreamworld, and she said, "Good morning, Cassie. Did you sleep well, Miss Hatteress?" "Not at all." She paused and said, "I'm sorry." I paused also. Dan and Drago were talking right outside my bedroom door, and we stayed really quiet, so we could listen to what they were saying, and I was hoping for something serious, but it was the exact reverse. Dan chuckled, "Did you hear what Helios said about Cassie and Spectra?" And my master was laughing, and he said in a mock-female voice, "OH, Spectra, I want to learn Vestal technology and how you upgrade Heli-" "Are you guys making fun of me?" I growled, opening the door and taking the pair by surprise. "No!" Dan confessed, but his guardian bakugan gave him a glare and told me, "Um, we were, just not in an offensive way. Sorry if were talking at your door. Some hooded lady was looking for you. She's at the stables." "Okay, thank you. Now, if you'll excuse me." The men, human and dragonoid, parted for me to pass-and I was very, very, pleased.

The walk to the stables was VERY BORING. I strolled in the palace walls, staring out the windows, and filled with despair. Nobody will believe me, right? OF COURSE THEY WON'T BELIEVE ME! OMG! I NEVER KNEW THAT! I looked at the floor in frustration and sighed. This is NOT going to be easy. So, what should I do? Tell my master or tell my roomate? My master would most likely laugh at me and say, "Cassandra, we're fine. Wiseman has been defeated. We'll be perfectly fine." and I'll go, "It's not Wiseman, these are ancient greek armies we're dealing with!" And then he'll walk away laughing. If I tell Alice, well, she's insane, but I don't know how she'll react. Decisions are so hard! I continued on to the front doors, but on my way there, I tap into MY insanity-the world of prophecy, the ability to see into the future.
- Main theme
I didn't remember when the hallways changed, but all of a sudden, I'm walking through a dark, cold, and seemingly never-ending hallway with a dark purple carpet and walls that were lit by small candles, like the kind you see on the menorah. Finally, I come to a black wooden door soaked with blood. I open it, and it makes a quiet creaking sound. I walk in, and the door slams behind me. It was a large room lit by a flame as small as a birthday candle. As I come forward, I trip over something big and cold. Then it comes to me. Purple carpet. Menorah candles. Black door soaked in blood. And ultimately, Agamemnon's dead body. I turn over to get a look at the hooded lady behind me, but she was raising her giant ax, and I was too terrified to do anything but scream as if Mr. Pink had jumped out of his cup.
- Houndsditch (again, but skip to the violin part)
"Well, well, isn't it young Cassandra! How have you been since you arrived in Bakugan city?" I turn around and see a brown-haired maiden who had actually borrowed her father's master thunderbolt and made a storm for me. "Athena! How's it going on Olympus? How's Zeus? Artemis? Aphrodite and Hephaestus and Demeter?" "They're fine. You?" I sigh. "Not well. Palace folk, making me mad. Helios and Hydranoid, to be more exact. And now the dreaded visions are back-" "Cassie! Would you like to come inside? It's pouring quite a bit!" My blouse was already showing my baby blue bra. It's about time I came inside. "Okay. I gotta go." "You should. And you don't even need a prophecy to find out what Helios would do if he saw you now!" And then she left. "Who was that? A friend or someone?" Alice was in her pink rainjacket. Alice is 19, but she has the attention span of a seven-year-old girl. She threw a blanket over me. "Thanks." I say. "In return, I need to tell you something very important, but I'm not sure you'll believe me." "Okay." We got into my room, and we sat on my bed. I met her crazed green eyes, and I told her, "This glorious city will take in a hollow wooden horse. Inside the horse are Odysseus, Neoptolemus, Ajax the lesser, and the other greek men, and they will hold torches and spears in their hands. By dawn, the city will be nothing but ashes, and the soldiers will be looting. Drago, Orbeum, Skytruss, and the rest of the brawlers' bakugan will be killed, and the only surviving human male will be Dan. Us girls will go to Clytemnestra. You would be burned to death on a cross, and she will get out Death blow and strike me three times." Complete silence from Alice, but her eyes were wide with horror as she remembered the fire that stole her family's lives. Then I heard speedy footsteps.
"Dan, we need to talk." I closed the door behind me as I walk in. "What is it, Drago?" I face him and say, "I overheard Cassie talking, and she said that there will be a second trojan war." Dan says, "What exactly did she say?"
I'll edit in a week. Got zapped two days ago, and my brain is FRIED.
