Criminal Curses

After Flippy's incarceration nearly a month ago, Flaky and Lifty are trying to get back to the way things used to be. But terrible two things happens: Flippy somehow escapes prison and the curse that made everyone in Happy Tree Town resurrect and live forever is fading and only Flippy knows how to stop it but, he only has one thing in mind: everyone dead. Can Flaky and Lifty try to save themselves and their friends? Or will their lives finally vanish just like Flippy did?


9. Choice To Kill

After hearing how to fix the curse, Flaky was freaking out, "I can't d-do that!"

"You have to if we want to fix the curse and save everyone" sighed Lifty

"B-but, I don't w-want to lose either of you guys" said Flaky

"Then I'll do it!" yelled Lifty, who grabbed a gun from Flippy's hostler and aimed it at Flippy's head. Flippy shot up and held up his hands frozen.

Lifty looked at Flaky, who was frozen in fear as well, "If your not going to kill him or me, I will kill him instead, I know your going to choose him over me, I just know it"

"T-That's not t-true" Flaky said

"Don't lie, I know how much you loved him before we met" said Lifty

Flaky sighed, "Okay, I did"

"See I was right" yelled Lifty

"but w-when I found you out in the rain that d-day, and took y-you home with me. After spending time with you, I-I realized that you were more than just some thief or crook. I realized your were the person I loved" Flaky had tears in her eyes, "P-please put the gun down"

Lifty slowly put the gun down and it fell from his grasp to the floor with a thud. He walked over to her and hugged her. She embraced him back and they stay there for a while. Lifty left go and sighed, "One of us needs to die for the curse to be fixed, right Flippy"

"That's correct" nodded Flippy

"I'll do it" sighed Lifty, "Gather everyone in Happy Tree Town and bring them to Town Hall, I want to see everyone's face before I'm gone"

Flippy nodded again and put a hand on his shoulder, "I'm sorry things turned out the way they did"

Lifty smiled sadly, "Me too"


It didn't take long for everyone to come to Town Hall. Everyone hugged Lifty, even Flippy. Shifty was trying not to cry as he hugged his brother for the first and last time. Then Flippy as Lifty how he wanted to go out. He said one word, "Hanging". So the townspeople built a noose stand with rope and a small stool. Lifty stood up on the stool and placed the rope around his neck, his hands were tied behind his back. He looked at everyone, who all had looks of sorrow on their faces.

"Everyone, can I have your attention?" yelled Lifty, everyone looked up at him, "I know your all going to miss me, but it's going to be okay, after I'm gone the curse should come back and the rest of you should live forever as normal, sure I'll be gone but, hey I lived a good life, right?" Lifty chuckled sadly, "I have some last words to some people though"

His gaze shifted to Flippy, "To Flippy, even though we had our differences, I want you to look after Flaky and protect her" He looked at Flaky, who was hugging Giggles, sobbing quietly, "Flaky, I love you, you showed me there was more to life than stealing and being a thief", He looked at his brother who was staring at him, tears staining his cheeks, "Shifty, my brother and partner in crime, I love you, man, you were a good brother to me and I hope you won't forget me". After his goodbyes, he sighed and looked at Flaky one last time, "Kick the stool". She walked over and standing on the stool, kissed him, "Goodbye Lifty". He nodded, and said, "Goodbye Flaky". She then pulled the stool out from under him and he began to choke and cough as he slowly died. As the world faded to black, the last thing he saw was everyone watching him. Watching him slip away.
