Later that morning in the marketplace, Ahkladdin and Dexter were on the canopy roof of a melon stand. Ahkladdin whispered
to the monkey as he gestured him to the edge of the canopy, "Okay, Dexter. Go!" Dexter saluted and crawled down the wooden
poles of the stand. Dexter reached for the melons as Homer Simpson, the melon seller, called out to the people passing by
as he held a melon, "Try this! Your taste buds will dance and sing!"
Dexter jumped down and grabbed a melon and chittered loud enough for Homer to hear him. He turned around and saw Dexter
with the melon and angrily shouted, "Hey! Get your paws off that!" Dexter held the melon and blew a raspberry at Homer.
Homer got angry and growled, "Why you little!"
He went over to Dexter and yelled at the monkey as he tried to pull the melon out of his hands, "Get away from there, you
stupid dirty monkey!" Ahkladdin reached down and grabbed a melon just as Homer took the melon from Dexter. He went back
up again before Homer could spot him and the fat yellow man came back to the front to place the melon with the others,
but he noticed one of them was missing. He groaned as he turned around to Dexter, "D'oh!" Dexter waved at him and smirked,
He crawled up the pole and met up with Ahkladdin, who had the melon in his hands. He smiled at his furry little friend,
"Nice going, Dexter." Dexter smiled as Ahkladdin broke the melon in half and said as he handed one half to him, "Breakfast
is served." Dexter took the melon half and the monkey and street rat started digging into their meal.
In one part of the market, Angelica was walking through the streets with interest. She had never seen how incredible the
market was until now. She smiled as she looked at a stand where a yellow alien of some sort was selling pots, bowls,
and other sorts of pottery. Wooldoor Sockbat smiled as he showed her an elegant looking pot, "Pretty lady, buy a pot.
No finer pot in brass or silver."
Angelica passed him and walked to another stand where a dorky Jewish man with red hair and glasses showed her a bunch of
nuts and seeds. Mort Goldman said as he showed her some of the things on sale, "Sugar dates! Sugar dates and beans! Sugar
dates and pistachios! Everything here's Kosher, too!"
She passed by him and went to another stand where an Indian man with black hair and moustache wearing a green shirt,
black vest and a light tan pants was selling a bunch of jewelry. Apu smiled as he showed Angelica a beautiful necklace
with purple and red jewels encrusted into it, "Would a lady like a necklace? A pretty neclace for a pretty lady."
Angelica smiled at the sellers, but she backed away in shock when Junichi Takayama, a Japanese sushi chef shoved a fish in
her face and exclaimed, "Fresh fish! Fresh sushi! We catch 'em, we make 'em, you buy 'em."
"Uhh, I don't think so." Angelica said nervously as she backed away from him, but she bumped into Barney Gumble, who was
about to perform a firebreathing trick and she made him swallow his match. Angelica said to him as he choked on the flame,
"Oh, excuse me." Barney leaned on her and let out a large belch of fire, making Angelica back away in surprise and her
hood flew back. Barney sighed in content as he pounded his chest for air.
Ahkladdin, who was still enjoying his melon with Dexter, looked over to see the commotion and saw Angelica apologizing to
Barney. "I'm very, very sorry." she said nervously as she walked away from him. Ahkladdin looked at Angelica and said in
amazement, "Wow!" He was struck by Angelica's beauty; her raven har, her beautiful hazel blue eyes, her olive skin
complexion and her beautiful smile. He watched her as she put her hood over her head again and she continued walking
through the market.
Dexter saw the look on Ahladdin's face, and he went over to him and said as he shook his in Ahkladdin's face, "Hello?
Hello?" But Ahkladdin was to struck by Angelica's beauty. He watched her walk over to an apple stand, where a little
Pichu was trying to get one of the apples, but he was too small to reach the stand.
Angelica looked at Pichu and said to him softly, "Oh, you must be hungry." Pichu looked at her sadly with puppy eyes and
nodded, and Angelica looked at the stand and grabbed a fresh red apple from on of the piles. "Here you go." she smiled as
she gave the apple to the little mouse Pokemon. Pichu smiled at her, and ran off in alarm when he saw Pete, the owner of
the stand, looking over. He saw Angelica walking away and glared at her, "You'd better be able to pay for that!"
Angelica stopped and asked with shock, "Pay?" Pete grabbed her arm and growled, "No one steals from my cart!" Angelica
said nervously, "Oh, I'm sorry, sir. I don't have any money."
"THIEF!" Pete shouted as he pulled Angelica towards the stand. Angelica stammered, "No, please! I-if you let me go to the
palace, I can get some from the Sultan." Ahkladdin and Dexter watched the whole scene and Dexter had a shocked looked on
his face while Ahkladdin had both a shocked and angry expression.
Angelica tried to get away, but Pete grabbed her and snarled as he slammed her hand on the stand and brought out a sword
from his belt, "Do you know what the penalty is for stealing?!" Angelica begged fearfully, scared of what was going to
happen next, "No! No, please!" Pete was about to throw his sword down and cut her hand clean off, but a human hand grabbed
his wrist and stopped him as a voice shouted out, "Whoa!"
Ahkladdin brought the sword out of his hand and hid it back and gave it to Angelica as he shook Pete's hand and said in a
relieved tone, "Thank you, kind sir. I'm so glad you found her!" He turned to Angelica and said to her sternly, "I've
been looking all over for you." Confused, Angelica whispered to him, "What are you doing?"
Ahkladdin whispered back, "Just play along." They began to walk away when Pete put his hand on Ahkladdin's shoulder and
asked him, "You, uh, know this girl?" Ahkladdin nodded and sighed, "Sadly, yes. She's my sister. She's a little crazy."
Pete grabbed him by the vest and growled, "She said she knew the Sultan!" Ahkladdin moved his hands away and said, "She
thinks the monkey is the Sultan." He pointed to Dexter, who was about to pickpocket a stranger's purse and when he saw
them looking at him, he backed away nervously and looked at them with innocent look.
Angelica was hesitant at first, but then she decided to play along with Ahkladdin. She bowed to Dexter and said as she
pretended to be crazy as he described her, "Oh, wise Sultan. How may I serve you?" Dexter babbled to sound like a sultan
as he patted her head. Ahkladdin said to Pete as he grabbed an apple from the stand with his foot, "Tragic, isn't it?"
He handed the apple to him, making it look like it was the apple Angelica took. He said to him, "But, no harm done."
Ahkladdin brought Angelica up on her feet and said, "Now, come along, sis. Time to go see the doctor." Angelica played
along and came up to a camel and smiled blankly, "Oh, hello, doctor. How are you?" Ahkladdin said with a fake laugh,
"No, not that one." He looked over at Dexter, whose vest looked like it was stuffed with something, and said, "Come on,
Sultan." Dexter babbled and bowed, but his vest spilled out the contents, revealing a bunch of apples, coins and rings.
Dexter screeched and Ahkladdin and Angelica looked back at him with surprise and Pete said, "What the-" Dexter grabbed
the items and shoved them back into his vest and ran off with Angelica and Ahkladdin. Pete yelled at them as they ran off,
"Come back here, you little theives!" But the trio had already ran off.
Back at the palace, Dracula and Fidget were in Dracula's secret lab. Fidget was running on a wooden gear to get an odd
machine going as a storm brewed avove him and the vampire was standing by it. Fidget panted as he ran on the gear,
"With all due respect, your rotteness, couldn't we just wait for a real storm?"
"Save your breath, Fidget! Faster!" Dracula ordered him as he put Peter's ring above an hourglass that was part of the
contraption. "Yes, O Mighty Evil One!" Fidget exclaimed as he started panting harder and ran faster. Lightning bolts
came out of the makeshift storm and hit the diamond on the ring. Dracula looked into the top of the hourglass as the sand
began to form shapes.
He smiled wickedly as the sands formed into the Cave of Wonders, "Sands of time, reveal to me the one who can enter the
cave." The sand fell into the bottom part of the hourglass and created a sandstorm. The storm revealed a vision of
Ahkladdin helping Angelica climb up the building to his home. Dracula said with a wicked grin, "Yes, yes! There he is!
My diamond in the rough!"
"That's him?! That's the clown we've been waiting for?" Fidget exclaimed in disbelief. He tripped on his peg leg, lost his
footing, and got sucked into the gears. He yelled in pain as they crushed him and lightning struck them.
Dracula sneered, "Let's have the guards extend him an invitation to the palace, shall we?" Fidget flew into the wall and
screamed before hitting it hard. He wheezed, "Swell..." He coughed out some smoke as he landed on the floor with a thud.
Dracula laughed wickedly as he looked into the sandstorm.
Meanwhile, Ahkladdin was helping Angelica up a roof of a building in the poor part of Agrabah. "We're almost there." he
smiled as he pulled the princess up to him. They began walking over the roof when Angelica tripped and Ahladdin caught
her before she fell.
He helped her on her feet as they look into each other's eyes. Angelica backed away from him and said as she straightened
her hood, "I want to thank you for stopping that man." Ahkladdin remembered saving her from Pete when he nearly chopped
her hand off.
"Uh, forget it." Ahkladdin said as he walked over to a bunch of long narrow poles. He continued as he and Dexter picked up
one of the poles, "So, uh, this is your first time in the marketplace, huh?" He ran over to the edge of the roof as
Dexter held onto the end of the pole and they jumped over the gap and to the other roof.
"Is it that obvious?" Angelica smirked with her hands on her hips. Ahkladdin chuckled as he brought a large board to the
edge, "Well you do kinda stand out." Angelica grinned at him, and Ahkladdin smiled at her. He shook it off and replied as
he set the board between the buildings, "I mean, uh, you don't seem to know how dangerous Agrabah can be."
He didn't see Angelica jump over the gap with her own pole. He turned around and saw her smiling and she giggled, "I'm a
fast learner." She tossed her pole to him, and Ahkladdin had a surprised look on his face and Dexter's jaw dropped in
shock as he held the apples he stole earlier. Ahkladdin gave a nervous chuckle and handed the pole to Dexter, who just
looked at him with a frown.
Ahkladdin came up to Angelica and said to her as he took her hand, "Come on. This way." He leads her inside his home and
they passed many dropped beams. "Whoa, watch your head there." Ahkladdin said to her as he pointed out to a beam that
was slanted at the side. Angelica ducked down as they kept walking. She looked around the room and asked, "Is this where
Ahkladdin nodded, "Yep. It's just me and Dexter. Come and go as we please." Angelica smiled as Ahkladdin led her to
the window, "That sounds fabulous." "Well, it's not much." Ahkladdin laughed as he moved the curtains to show her the
view of Agrabah. He added as he and Angelica looked at the city, "But it's got a great view."
The looked at the palace and Ahkladdin sighed, "Wow, the palace looks pretty amazing, huh?" Angelica looked at her home
and sighed, "Oh, it's wonderful." Ahkladdin and Dexter looked at the palace and the street rat said, "I wonder what it
would be like to live there. They have servants and valets." Angelica said in disbelief, "Oh, sure. And people tell where
to go and how to dress."
Ahkladdin chuckled, "It's better than here."
Dexter was about to take a bite out of an apple, but Ahkladdin took the apple and continued, "You're always scraping for
food and ducking the guards.
Angelica said, "You're not free to make your own choices."
"Sometimes you feel so..." Ahkladdin replied.
Angelica sighed, "You're just..."
"Trapped." they said at once.
They heard what they said and looked at each other and smiled. Ahkladdin cleared his throat and said, "So, where are you
from?" He passed an apple to her after rolling it down his arm and she caught it. Angelica answered, "What does it
Her smile turned into a frown and said as she turned away from the street rat, "I ran away and I am not going back."
Ahkladdin took a bite out of his apple and asked as he handed to Dexter, "Really? How come?" He went over to Angelica as
Dexter stuck his toungue out at the bitten apple, but he started to have a smirk on his face and threw the apple aside.
Ahkladdin sat by Angelica and the princess sighed sadly, "My dad's forcing me to get married."
Ahkladdin said with a shocked look, feeling sorry for Angelica, "Well, that's... that's awful!" He looked over and saw
Dexter right next to her reaching for the apple in her hands. He frowned at the monkey, "Dexter!"
Dexter jumped to the other side and babble something as if cursing at him and pointed at Angelica. Angelica asked,
confused at what he said, "Uh,... what?"
Ahkladdin tried to think of something, "Uh, Dexter says, um..." He thought for a moment, then he said, "'That's not fair'.
Dexter raised his brow and said in disbelief, "Huh?"
"Oh, did he?" Angelica asked.
"Yeah, of course." Ahkladdin nodded.
"And does Dexter have anything else to say?" Angelica asked him in an innocent tone as she looked at him. Ahkladdin
shrugged , "Well, uh, he wishes there was something we can do to help." Dexter rolled his eyes and groaned as he put his
paw under his chin, "Oh, boy."
Angelica looked into Ahkladdin's eyes and said softly, "Tell him that's very... sweet." They both started getting closer
to each other's faces and their lips were about to touch when a voice called out, "Here you are!"
They turned to the entrance and saw the guards coming in. They both exclaimed in shock, "They're after me!" They looked at
each other and asked at once, "They're after you?!" One of the Huns sliced his way though the beams as the others followed
him. Angelica shuddered in fear, "Omigosh, my dad must have sent them."
Ahkladdin and Dexter got on the edge of the window and Ahkladdin looked down below, then he looked at Angelica and asked
her, "Do you trust me?" Angelica exclaimed, "What?"
"Do you trust me?" Ahkladdin said as he held his hand out to her. Angelica nodded and said in a shaky tone, "Yes." She
took his and Ahkladdin called out, "Then jump!" Angelica yelled as Ahkladdin and Dexter jumped off and they began to
fall to the streets below. They landed on a sheet, then onto a pile of sand.
They looked at each other, then they got bak on their feet and started running. They stopped to a halt when Ahkladdin ran
into Shan Yu and the guard sneered as he held him by the neck, "We just keep running into each other, don't we, street
Dexter jumped on his head and shoved his turban over his eyes again, making him release Ahkladdin. He elbowed Shan Yu in
the stomach and said to Angelica as he took her hand, "Run! Go! Get out of here!" They ran into an alley, but the guards
stood in front of them and they ran back the way they came. Shan Yu threw Dexter off his hand and sent him flying into a
Then he grabbed Ahkladdin by the vest and laughed cruelly, "It's the dungeon for you, boy!" He threw them to the guards
and he was held by two of the Huns. Ahklanddin grunted as he tried to get out of their grip, "Hey, let go of me!"
Angelica came up to Shan Yu and exclaimed as she started hitting his arm, "Let him go!" Shan Yu looked at her and laughed,
"Lookie here, men. A street mouse." He shoved Angelica aside and Angelica got angry. She got back on her feet and yelled
as she removed her hood, "Unhand him! By order of the princess!"
The guards stopped laughing and looked at Angelica with looks of fear and shock. Shan Yu gasped and said as he bowed to
her and the guards followed his example and made Ahkladdin bow, "Princess Angelica!"
Ahkladdin shot up in shock, "The princess?!"
Dexter peeked out of the pot and exclaimed, "The princess?!"
Shan Yu stammered, "What are you doing outside the palace, a-and with this street rat?!" Ahkladdin looked at the ground
in disbelief that the girl he saved, befriended, fell in love at first sight was really Agrabah's princess. Angelica
yelled at Shan Yu, "That's none of your concern! Do as I command! Release him!" Despite his large size, Shan Yu was
intimidated by the young princess.
He back away from her fearfully and stammered as the guards took Ahkladdin away, "I would, princess, except my orders come
from Count Dracula. You'll have to take it up with him."
Angelica glared as she crossed her arms, "Believe me, I will!"
