So Tweedle-Tough, Tweedle-Fluff and yours truly tried to get it back kinda failed though, mostly them, and now the evil Queen and the Council has both keys yo! But the lady in black kinda cracked the Pyramid the wrong way and got majorly whacked by some ancient snooze button. Buenos Nochos senorita which brings us to sleeping Un-beauty AKA Niles Peg AKA the loco who kept taking the book from the library then the pyramid cast the sleeping curse on him too? That's when the junior nerdets Jenny and Tina to figure out. And a Handsome prince found out that the court jester is being blackmailed too so they joined forces to bring light to the darkness man and restore peace and Mucho handsomeness to the kingdom man.
