It is a great day for Miguel and his friends who are invited because they are going to see a lot of awesome things in New York. After a long ride on a airplane, they arrive at New York. After getting a room or two at the Wyndham New Yorker Hotel, they walked around the city, taking in the sight of many stores and restaurants. For a while everything was good, until they see rampaging, green monster attacking buildings and innocents. After a moment of shock, they donned masks made by Rosallia to hide their identities in public places like NY and went on to battle the monsters.
The monsters spot them and do battle with the heroes. Miguel avoids a punch from a monster, and slashes at it, giving it a big wound. Manuel was at first outmatched in strength, but his sheer will gave him the victory. Owen and Rosallia were struggling against two of the monsters, but with their brains and teamwork, they made the two monsters crash into each other headfirst, knocking them out. All the other knights went to help Chamaella and surround the last monster. With all the Puerto Rican Knights attacking at once, the monster stood no chance and was defeated.
With the monsters defeated and weakened, they escape into an alley to take off their masks while the authorities handle the monsters. When Manuel asks if they want to go to Time Square, they all agree and set off.

Then Miguel spots a figure watching them from a tree and chases after it, with the others running after him. Despite their efforts, Miguel and Manuel couldn’t keep up with the figures agility, so Owen and Rosallia used their agility to keep up while Chamaella camouflages herself from sight. After some time of keeping up with the figure, it stopped and so have the three Knights, examining the figure, who is tall,furry, and has big feet.

The Puerto Rican Knights agree to help and start developing a plan. After some time of thinking, Owen and Rosallia came up with a plan. They say that the hunters are near the tribe, so they are gonna trap the hunters with bolas and other traps made of bigfoot material.
Owen: “Miguel and I will cover the pits with leaves so they don’t suspect a thing and fall into the pit, classic trap.”
Rosallia:“Right, Chamaella, Manuel and I, as well as the bigfoot tribe, will throw the bolas at them and knock them out. After that, we destroy whatever evidence they have on our allies, everyone agree to this?”
At this plan, everyone agrees and get set to initiate their plan. After waiting for the hunters to arrive, the Puerto Rican Knights and the bigfoot tribe trap them, successfully stopping them from harming anymore innocents.
Miguel:“There, that should stop them from hunting anymore bigfoots,” now let us get rid of the evidence.”
After that, they go back to the bigfoot village and celebrate their victory by throwing parties, singing, playing music and telling stories. After the celebrations, the Knights say their goodbyes and go on a long walk back to their aparment in Seattle.

Miguel:” I got to agree with you Manuel,” but now it is time to go back.” Does anyone want pizza?”
4. Hero of Canada
In a country called Canada, people there live great lives due to its many benefits including a variety of seasons, low crime rate, good healthcare and hockey. Then, there are those who spend a lot of time in work, like one inventor named Alexander Snow or Alex for short. Alex became an inventor sometime after graduating from Royal Roads University in British Columbia. He is trying to create a machine that cures all diseases, but has yet to succeed. One night, he is hard at work, making different drafts of his invention.
Alex: “So many attempts, but none have worked. All hope is not lost though, for I have another idea and I really hope it works.”
Then he set on working on this idea,but in the process of development, he noticed a flaw in the unfinished machine.
Alex: “Weird, there appears to be flaw in the machine. No worries, I can fix the circuits of this hunk of metal.”
And fix it he did, and after checking the machine three times, he felt ready to test the machine. He has only one problem: there was no willing test subject, so he decided that he himself will be the test subject as he actually has chest pain. It was not threatening, but he wants to be cured. Alex set the timer, and he went into the machine, but something unexpected happens.
Alex:“wh-what is happening?”something must be wrong with the machine’s circuitry!”
He screams as the light engulfs his entire body. After the light fades, Alex comes out of the machine and almost collapses to the door. He reaches out to grab something, but somehow a beam shoots out of his hand, surprising the inventor. He thinks about it, and after shooting another beam, he came to one big realization.
Alex:“The machine must have granted me the power to shoot beams of light!””This is the most amazing thing that has happened to me in my life!”
Then he accidentally destroys a table with a light beam.
Alex:“Oops, looks like I have to replace that.”
For several days, he practiced in the use of his powers,now making him capable of creating a lasso of light and light shields. He also dons a costume which has the colors of the Canadian flag and sets out to fight crime. Due to his heroic actions, the crime rate has lowered more and the people are praising their hero, who is known to them as Sir Canada. Then, on a peaceful day, an evil man appeared on television, declaring himself to be known as Bomb Man.
Bomb Man:“Hello people of Canada, I am here a little deal: hand over the country to me or I will blow it up,” leaving it into ruins.”
Upon seeing the broadcast, Alex dons the identity of Sir Canada and flies to a place he figures Bomb Man would be at. He arrives to the location, which is an abandoned house far from the city, and finds his foe there. He sneaks around the house and when the time came, he blasted the bomb remote into ashes, surprising the master of bombs.
Bomb Man:“What?!””who is-its you, the hero known as Sir Canada!”
Sir Canada:“That’s right!””I am the guardian of this fair country and I shall stop you from blowing it up to smithereens!”
Bomb Man:“I will not be beaten by the likes of super losers like you!”
Bomb Man attempt hit Sir Canada with a strong fist, but the Canadian hero avoids the punch and lands three punches of his own, and he was about to throw his fourth punch, but the explosive villain grabs his hand and headbutts him away. They were going on a cycle of beatings and was ended with the guardian landing a punch to the jaw, knocking his foe out.
Sir Canada:“There, now to take out the bombs.”
Sir Canada checks deeper into the bombs and works around the wires. He finds the right wire and cuts it on each bomb, neutralizing them all. He returns to the city, carrying the unconscious Bomb Man, and declares his removal of the bombs. The public cheers and praise their hero as he flies away. The next day, he hears the news, describing how he saved Canada again.
Alex:“well, looks like I have saved the day again and with a bigger bang”.
5. Bear Forest
Miguel and friends are enjoying their trip in British Columbia, Canada. They are currently walking around a forest while armed with tools that can defend each other from bears and other predators. Then, Manuel sees three bears approaching him and shouts to the others.
Manuel“Hey amigos, there’s three bears here and they are getting closer!”
The others run to Manuel’s location, getting their equipment and rushing to their friend’s defense. However, they were not prepared for what they see, nor was Manuel, as they see the bears shape-shift into humanoid forms that resemble humans in bear fur. Everyone stood still for a moment,with the Knights trying to comprehend what they have just seen. Then, the first to speak was Owen.
Owen:“Who are you three?”
???:“I am Ursa and these are my men, for we are from the Ursa Major tribe.”
Manuel:“So you are named after Ursa Major the constellation?”
Ursa:“I’m named after both and now we shall take you to our village, we need help and you seem to be the only options.”
Miguel:“Alright, lead the way.”
Ursa led the Puerto Rican Knights to her home village, where they see lots of bear people, where some are in human form and others are in their bear forms. They see two bear-folk wrestling each other, some of them doing combat training in both forms(humanoid and bear) and young bears raised by their elders. They see huts with bear tapestries and some depict the unity of the major and minor tribes. As they follow Ursa, they are receiving stares from the villagers and this continued until they arrive to the center of the village, where they take in the sight of bear totems and see an elder bear, a gray haired bear, who must be the village chief. Then, the chief speaks.
???:“They are the ones to help us?”
Ursa:“Yes Mother Bear, they are the only hope left.”
The chief known as Mother Bear turns to the heroes.
Mother Bear:“Very well, as you have known, I am Mother Bear, chief of the bear tribes, and we are in dire need of help.””Our species is in danger because of hunters who kill our kind to near extinction.””We may be aggressive and untrusting of outsiders, but we are out of options, so we turn to you for aid.”
Rosallia:“Wow, we know that bears are aggressive, no offense, but none of you deserve this fate.”
Owen:“Doesn’t this remind us of that conflict with the Bigfoot Tribe in Seattle?”
Chamaella:“Yes, it seems the same is happening here with the bear tribes.”
Manuel:“Well what are we waiting for amigos?””let’s stop some more hunter butt.”
Miguel:“Alright, here’s the plan, Owen and Manuel will lure the hunters away while Chamella and Rosallia will take care of their vehicles so they don’t escape.”
Rosallia:“What about you?”
Miguel:“Me and Ursa will lead the bear folk to a safer forest so the hunters can never find them again, thus they stay on the species chart.”
Miguel turns to Ursa and Mother Bear.
Miguel:“Do you trust us?”
Mother Bear:“Yes, we do and may the spirit bears guide us.”
Miguel:“Alright everyone, let’s go!”
Then the time has come, when the hunters arrived to hunt the bear folk. They hear bear roars and go towards the roars, leaving only two hunters who are then knocked out by Rosallia and Chamaella, who proceed to render the vehicles useless. While all of this was happening, Miguel and Ursa led the bear folk to a safer place. After all is done, they reunite at the new village.
Mother Bear:“We thank you for your aid outsiders.”
Ursa:“The bear folk will always be in your debt.”
Miguel:“And we will always be happy to help.”
Manuel:“And don’t forget, kick some bad guy butt!”
Mother Bear:“Before you go, is there any way for us to repay you?”
Miguel:“All we ask is for eternal friendship and loyalty.”
Mother Bear:“Very well, may you fare well in your journeys.”
Miguel and his friends leave the new village and start walking towards the next transportation that would take them to their apartment in Canada. They eventually arrive to their destination and enter their room.
Owen:“I had a good time today, anyone agree?”
Manuel:“Yeah, that was awesome, heck, I even got a chance to roar and it was wild!”
Miguel:“I agree, we had some new and exciting experiences on this day.”
Owen:“At least we don’t walk around Bearfoot.”
Everyone except Miguel, who was laughing, groaned at the bear pun.
Owen:“Want to hear another pun?”
Wow, that was a long story here or more specifically, a long series of stories here. Yeah, you will notice that the first and second stories didn’t have dialogue just like the previous stories. It was at the third story and the moment when they were discussing plans to drive away the hunters that I felt like adding dialogue. I intend to leave it like that so you can see the evolution of my writing.
Note: I started this(the drawings) in August 22, 2015 and finished it at 29 of the same month and year.
That is all and I hope you can Bear the long and American stories.
