Written by DK64rules
The main characters are...
Kiara the Battle Buddy
Part 1: The First of the 4
Kiara: Eric! Hit Gultuon's Rocket Pack! It's what keeps him in the air and out of reach!
Eric: Got it!
[Eric fires a Voidball at Gultuon's Rocket Pack, making it burst in flame and send Gultuon spiraling to the ground!]
Kiara: Well, Gultuon, looks like you're down.
Gultuon: 'Aye, tis true. Even me rockets couldn't hold meh up long enough.
Gultuon: Well, finish me--
[Eric plunges his sword into Gultuon's back, making the old sorceror explode in dark purple smoke.]
Kiara: Always finish off your opponent in mid-speech?
[The First Coveted Darkness Orb appears, and Eric immediately grabs it, securing 1 out of 4.]
Kiara: Hmm, now what?
Eric: How about we take a break?
Kiara: When I'm getting paid for every hour of work to save the Void? I don't think so.
Eric: Okay then, I guess will head back to Ameri to find out-
Merevelous: I don't think that is possible anymore!
Eric & Kiara: Merevelous!
Merev: Why does everyone do that?!
Eric: What have you done with Ameri?!
Merev: Ameri is dead. Now you will never find my other minions!
Part 2: Short-Lived Help
Kiara: I'm gonna kill you soon enough, you cretin!
Merev: I thought that was Eric's job, but if you insist...you can kill me.
Kiara: With pleasure!
Eric: Kiara, don't!
[Kiara runs over to Merevelous to kill him, but two huge knights appear. These are Elite Merevelaries, bodyguards to Merevelous.]
Merev: Take hold of her! Nobody shall help this Sixty Four wannabe.
[The Elite Merevelaries sink inot the ground, Kiara with them.]
Merev: I believe you can stop this stupid quest of yours.
[Merevelous disappears in the darkness.]
Eric: Never....I won't stop....
[Eric notices a small, running figure in the distance.]
[The running figure takes a glance, then speeds away.]
Eric: Oh, for cryin' out-
[The figure shoots a poison dart!]
[The dart hits Eric directly in the chest, and he falls.]
Part 3: Return of a New/Old Friend
???: Why have you come here? To the bottom?
???: You may have noticed that I have revived you. But now you must answer me. Why are you here?
???: You don't mean...those Orbs...
Eric: I do. Where am I...?
???: In my home. Come, get up off my couch.
[Eric gets up and has a look around....very old-fashioned.]
Eric: Who are you?
???: I'm.....Mick Cool.
What the-? Mick Cool?!
