(During yet another season of Total Drama, Chris challenges the remaining contestants to a torture themed challenge; where one contestant gets to torture another (sound a bit familiar to you guys). So far Ella has sung to Duncan (who is now huddling in fear), Shawn snot rocketed Dave again, and Bridgette food poisoned Heather (who spends the rest of the challenge puking in the confessional). Now it was Mike's turn to torture someone. Chris spins two wheels; one for the contestant getting tortured and one for what form of torture they shall receive.)
Chris: OK Mike, the person you will be torturing is... (the first wheel stops) Zoey.
Chris: And you will have to... (the second wheel stops) tie her up and tickle torture her. Really?
Zoey: (Terrified) NO!
Chris: Why are you so worked up. It's one of the most harmless tortures out there.
Zoey: Not to me its not. I can't do it. (She runs off sobbing)
Mike: Zoey wait! (He runs after her)
Chris: Well, if they don't return by the time the challenge is over, both of them could be out. OK, who's next?
(Cuts to Mike still trying to find Zoey. He soon finds her sitting on a rock by the beach. He walks over and sits next to her.)
Mike: Zoey, what's wrong? Why did you run off like that?
Zoey: (Sighs) Mike, I have to tell you something. You... you... you were not the first guy I fell in love with.
Zoey: Yes, I feel in love with someone else; and he was the reason why I hate tickle tortures and being tied up.
As he holds her) Tell me all about it.
Zoey: It all started about a year before I came on the show and met you.
(Transitions to a flashback)
Zoey: (Voiceover) I had just started having a relationship with this guy. I don't want to say his name because just mentioning it is painful to remember. We've been seeing each other for about two weeks. Then one day after school, he came up with an idea. He told me to stay after school with him. So I agreed.
Mike: (Voiceover) What was his idea?
Zoey: (Voiceover) He wanted me to meet him in a janitor's closet. So I went there, and there he was with some rope and a chair. I thought he was just going to tickle me in secret. So I let him tie me up; at least my wrist and ankles to the chair. He first took off my sandals and started to tickle my feet; which was fun. Then he tickled my calves, my belly and sides, and then my neck. I was enjoying every moment of it.
(Transitions back to present day)
Zoey: But then, he started to do something horrible to me.
(Zoey just looked away before cutting to a few minutes later. If I mention what this guy did to Zoey, this fanfic would get a mature rating. All I can say is that he touched her inapproprietly.)
Mike: (Shocked) Wow! I can't believe he did that to you.
Zoey: Yeah! It was scary. I have never felted so humiliated and horrified in my life. When he was all done he untied me and was about to leave. I asked him if he was happy with what he did, and he said yes. After he left, I ran from the school and never stopped until I got home. I ran upstairs to my bedroom and dove onto my bed to cry my eyes out.
Mike: That's horrible!
Zoey: My mom and dad came upstairs to comfort me. I told them what had happened and they were furious. So they called the school and the next day he was arrested and was sent to juvie. I was so scared and upset that I stayed home for a whole week. So my mom stayed with me for that week and only left me in the morning just to get my school work so I wouldn't fall behind.
Mike: I'm so sorry to hear that. But you don't seem to be scared around me.
Zoey: Oh don't worry. When I got back a lot of people gave me some cards to show their support. Soon, I had forgotten all about that guy. But to this day I'm still afraid of being tied up. I was even terrified when Izzy Spider captured me a few seasons ago.
Mike: (As he hugged her) Zoey, you don't have to do it if you don't have to. We can just quit and go home.
(So the two of them returned to the others just as Noah was forced to kiss Cody on the cheek; which they both hated)
Chris: So, you've finally decided to come back huh.
Zoey: Yes, but...
Chris: Perfect! Chef, tie the girl up.
Chris: Oh yeah, you're still getting tickled tortured even if are planning on quitting.
Zoey: (As Chef is tying her up the same way the other guy did a few years ago) HELP!
Chris: (Laughs) I am evil aren't I?
(He continues to laugh until Mike sucker punches him in the face; knocking him out. He then used Svetlana's gymnastics (what was left of them) to avoid Chef, untie Zoey, and the two of them ran to The Slingshot of Shame and made their escape. Chris got up with a black right eye and was very cross.)
Chris: OK, that's two more contestants I'm never bringing back. First the Goth falls for the C.I.T. chick and now this. This show has gone off track.
Geoff: Dude, it's gone off track since World Tour. (He winks at the camera)
(Cuts to Zoey's House)
(That night, Zoey was sitting on her bed while Mike was making a call. He soon returned to her.)
Zoey: Thanks for saving me today.
Mike: You're Welcome! You know, being tickled tortured is nothing to be afraid of. You just need to be with the right person who knows how to treat women.
Zoey: You're very kind and smart Mike.
Mike: So, how about we try to get this fear of yours out. I'll tie you up and then I'll tickle you. And don't worry, I won't do what he did. I would never, ever, do anything that volger to you.
Zoey: (Pauses for a minute) OK!
(So Mike left to find some rope. He tied Zoey's arms to her torso, her hands behind her back, her legs together (from the lower thighs to the knees), and her ankles together (after he took her sandals off). Zoey felt a little uncomfortable.)
Mike: Zoey, may I tickle you now?
Zoey: Mike, (she pauses again before she gives a small smile) thank you for asking me. Yes, you may.
(So Mike started to tickle Zoey. He started with her feet, then her calves, her belly and sides, and finally her neck. Zoey couldn't help but laugh. Then Mike did something else to her. But it wasn't what Zoey's Ex did. Instead he laid her down on the bed and laid on top of her a bit and continued to tickle her neck and face. Zoey was soon blushing with laughter. Then he stopped and the two of them gazed at each other.)
Zoey: Thank you Mike! I'm no longer afraid of being a damsel getting tickled. You really do know how to treat me right.
Mike: You're Welcome! (The two of them shared a kiss, with Mike still on top of Zoey, until they heard the doorbell ring) Oh, your special visitor is here.
Zoey: (As Mike unties her) Special visitor?
Mike: I invited this person here so you two could hangout together. And now you can consider this as a gift for standing up against your fear.
(Suddenly the door opens and in came a familiar Goth girl; a girl that Zoey considers to be a big sister to her)
Zoey: GWEN! (She runs up to her and gives her a big hug)
Gwen: Zoey! It's so good to see you again. Are you OK?
Zoey: I'm better than ever, thanks to Mike.
Mike: She is! I'll leave you two alone. (He leaves the bedroom)
Gwen: Mike told me what Chris did to you; and what this ex-boyfriend of yours did.
Zoey: Yeah! But I'm not afraid to get tickled while being tied up.
Gwen: That's good to hear. (She smirks) But how do you feel about getting tickled when you are not tied up?
Zoey: (Chuckles) Oh no!
(Gwen soon pins Zoey down to her bed as she starts to tickle her. As Zoey fights it, she manages to get free for a minute to remove Gwen's boots and stockings so she could tickle her back. Soon both girls were crawling on top one another as they tickled each other and laughed. Mike, who was peering thought the door, just smiles as he closes the door and heads back home.)
