Yesterday, Maria was minding her own business, prancing in her bedroom singing a Star World advert song which she had recently rediscovered, when out of the corner of her eye, she sees a huge brown cockroach moving around all the suitcases in her room.
She screams and runs for cover. Then, behind the door, she morphs into Super Maria. And this is how the battle started.
Read on ahead.
DIE, COCKROACH, DIE!
Maria runs, gets hold of some talcum powder and a shoe. SWISH! She pours the talcum powder over the cockroach.
“DIE, COCKROACH, DIE!” she shrieks.
But the intruder would just not give up. It starts roach-jogging towards the study table.
“Oh, HELL no!”, she thought.
Then, she sees it, hiding behind the study table’s leg, preparing its modus operandi, no doubt. Quick as lightening, she doused the roach with yet another shower of talcum powder.
“YAS!” she shouts with victory.
But it still would not die. It roach-crawls towards the lounge. Maria then decides long distance shooting would be the best plan of attack. She whips out two-three pairs of heeled platform shoes, and throws them at the excuse of a creature. It dodged each shot skilfully. :/
Bringing out the Big Gun(s)
“Aha! At last I’ve found a worthy opponent”, she says, “Enough is enough. Time to call in the troops. ABBU!!!”
Maria’s cockroaching-killing-mean-machine father appears.
“KILL IT”, Maria orders, pointing towards the thing.
“Bug-spray please” says Abbu, with the air of a doctor in the OR asking for a scalpel.
Maria fetches the bug spray, and hands it to her father. *PHOOOOOOO* The cockroach is blown away by the spray’s intense chemicals. It wheezes and coughs. And then dies.
“TAKE THAT! AHA! Thank you, Father.” Maria says humbly ,”Thank you thank you THANK YOU!”
Abbu gives his daughter the “()_()” look and thinks “What an insane bachi I’ve raised…”
Maria, the great cockroach killing machine! Yet another marauding criminal bandit has been destroyed by her skilled and dangerous hands! NONE shall escape the wrath of Maria’s fearless mission! Mwahahahaaaa!
