So they all ran down to the docks and chris transformed into a fish and swam down to the spot and looked down at the ocean floor and saw skeletons of fish, birds and all sorts of creatures and then chris signaled that it was the spot. So they went back to the coast guard telling them that the bay near the old oil plant is contaminated with toxins. So while the coast guard was taking care of that they had to gear up so they went back to the house. They geared up and now chris was known as animungi and he had his electric blue uniform and Hayden is known as melon man and his green and red watermelon uniform appeared and nick is known as the cycic and a orange uniform appeared and they were known as the mighty melons.

The mysterious watermelons part one

 

There once was a group of people. There was three people in the group and their names where Nicholas, Hayden and Chris. They each made up their own nicknames. Nick’s was Water Warrior, Hayden was melon man, and Chris was water ninja . They were the Mighty Melons.Then one day they all went to school but on their way to school they saw a watermelon. They walked up to it and then saw more and more. Nick said “I think its a path ”Then they followed the watermelons and ran into a cave and found a huge village with houses made of fruit. Then
while Hayden and chris were looking around nick went to meet the people but the people turned out to be WATERMELONS. Nick was so scared when he saw them he ran to hayden and chris. When he told them about the melon people and Hayden worked up the guts to go and meet them. When Hayden walked up to the village and the people appeared to be quite cute. The watermelons seemed to talk a different language but hayden seemed to kind of understand their language. He said it sounded like pig latin but a little different. When the watermelon said ihtay which meant hi in their language. Then all of a sudden the earth started to shake and the watermelons homes started collapsing. After the earthquake happened Chris Nick and Hayden went on cleanup duty to have a snack and help but mainly they were hungry so they ate the broken houses to make room for new ones. But then a minute or two they had to go home because they had to go to sleep. So the next day they went to the supermarket to buy a lot of fruit so the melon people can rebuild their homes and they will be even better. Then when we went there we help them rebuild their village stronger than it was, but while they were moving the old watermelon they all saw a bigger cave behind the other one. When they went into the cave and then they saw? Then Hayden said “Is that the watermelon king and queen!?” Nick and Chris were surprised to see a little kid behind with the king and queen.
