*an hour later, in the castle throne room*
*sits on his throne* It's been too long now. They should have gotten the scrolls by now.
Relax will ya? I'm sure they're fine.
*enters, dragging Crys behind her* Where is the clinic?
Oh my... somebody get some help for him!
*looks at Crys* Punch to the face?
Ouch. That had to hurt.
*gets out his deck of cards* You see, these come in handy for something.
Please not that card again.
Cards? Hell man this is no time for a game.
Come now. Watch closely. *takes out a card titled "Punch Out!!"*
*looks at the card* Oh brother. As though playing Tetris for these cards weren't bad enough.
Still experimental. But if it works, Crys will regain composure. *holds the card to Crys' forehead, which disappears into a light mist, penetrating Crys' skin*
*wakes up* Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh! *jumps up and starts running around, then runs to the nearby bathroom*
*a loud dunking sound is heard followed by many flushes*
... it's just like medicine... too many side effects.
Told you it was experimental.
*comes out of the bathroom, toilet paper on his foot* That stuff burns you moron!
It's either that or be in a coma for the rest of your life... Troll punches are hard.
When did I get punched by a troll?
You pushed me out of the way to stop the troll from hitting me. I owe you my life Crys.
*shrugs* You owe me nothing... because I don't remember a thing.
Another side effect of the card, Zak?
No, I believe that's the side effect of the punch. He probably won't remember why he was in the dungeon.
Speaking of why... where are the other two?
*enters with the scrolls* It wasn't easy but we got them!
We? If I remember correctly I held off the Sewer Rats while YOU grabbed the scrolls.
Hey, your magic can hold them off better than my spear, and I can jump long distances. It was quicker this way.
No matter. Jaymi, can you read them?
*takes the scrolls* I can try.
