} Alice Goes to Indiana
} A Darkwing Duck Story
} by Robert Ludlum
} One fine spring day, Darkwing Duck went to see his friend
} Alice. When Darkwing Duck arrived at Alice's house, he
} found Alice crying.
} "What's the matter, Alice?" asked Darkwing Duck.
} "Oh Darkwing Duck, I don't know what to do," wept Alice.
} "I must give this book to the Oracle, but I don't know
} "There there, Alice," said Darkwing Duck. "Let's go see
} Owl. Owl is very wise. He will know how to find this
} So Darkwing Duck and Alice went to see Owl, who lived in
} the forest. When they got to Owl's house, Owl was very
} busy. It always seemed as if Owl was working on some sort
} of important project.
} "The Oracle?!" gasped Owl when Alice and Darkwing Duck
} told him their problem. "No one ever sees the Oracle!
} You can send the Oracle a message, but no one's actually
} SEEN the famous Oracle!"
} "Oh please Mr. Owl," pleaded Darkwing Duck. "The Oracle
} asked Alice for this book, so it must be very important.
} Can't you please tell us where to find the Oracle?"
} "Oh all right," sighed Owl. He scribbled an address on
} a piece of paper and gave it to Alice and Darkwing Duck.
} Darkwing Duck and Alice thanked Owl and left.
} So Alice and Darkwing Duck began the long journey from
} Alice's home in New Zealand to the place Owl had written
} on the paper, a place called Indiana. They had to take
} trains, planes, boats and cars.
} Finally Darkwing Duck and Alice arrived at a big school
} in Indiana. Alice was very anxious to finally meet the
} Oracle. Alice reached up to ring the Oracle's doorbell.
} "Hold it right there, Alice!"
} Darkwing Duck was pointing a pistol at Alice. He fired.
} Alice, mortally wounded, fell to her knees. "But Dark-
} wing Duck," Alice managed, "why? Why?"
} Darkwing Duck slowly removed his duck mask. Alice was
} shocked. "Are...you..."
} "Yes, Alice, I am the Oracle." Another shot put Alice
} on the floor, still breathing. "I'm sorry to have put
} you through all this, but it's the only way you'll
} Alice stopped breathing, but not before hearing the
} Oracle's final words to her:
} "Never include your .signature in a question to the
} Oracle. It'll never make it into the Oracularites
} Digest if you do."
} The End.
} Be sure to read the other books in the Darkwing Duck
} series, including "Steve goes to Spain."
} You owe the Oracle an autographed copy of "Make Way for
} Ducklings." Be sure to deliver it in person.
