Part 1: Sudden Stop
???: Come on, Battle Buddy! I didn't pay you to be this slow!
Kiara: Sorry, John. This place...it's depressing in this landfill.
John: So? This is where the treasure is! I can almost feel those mansion walls!
Kiara: Well....if you say so....I am getting paid, I guess...
John: Try not to trip over that coming up, ok?
Kiara: Wait....this is a body!
[John slides down the hill he's on, and joins Kiara.]
Kiara: Help me get it out!
John: Dead body.....cool treasure....hmm...
Kiara: Fine, I'll do it my-
[The body is none other than Eric Four, the forgotten hero who was defeated by Merevelous.]
John: Who's that?
Kiara: It's....Eric Four!
Part 2: Revival to Return
Kiara: Hand me your Revival Potions!
John: But, I need these for-
Kiara: Just give them to me!
John: You are by far the most demanding Battle Buddy I've ever seen.
[John hands the potions over, reluctantly. Kiara uses the potion on Eric, and he jumps up, his energy being returned at an alarmingly fast rate.]
Eric: Hey! I'm alive! Kiara, you saved me? What happened? Who's that?
John: Hi, I'm John.
Kiara: Merevelous sent you down the shaft and you ended up here when the Trash Bots unloaded the bottom part of the shaft's debris.
Eric: So he's alive....
[Eric looks out over the purple Void Rivers, and notices that the city looks different. Much different. It has been changed into Darklands City, Merevelous's world of power.]
Kiara: Notice anything?
Eric: The city....it's changed. Did Merevelous do all this?
John: Yeah, he did. I was an Elite Merevelary before I realized my mistake. I was stabbed by a young boy before I changed my ways....wait a minute...
Eric: You're THAT John?!
John: Ha ha, would you look at that. It is you! I just knew it! No hard feelings. If you didn't try to kill me, I don't think I would've changed.
Part 3: Preparing a Do-Over
Kiara: So, what do we do now?
John: Yeah, Eric. I'm ready to fight that evil ruler! Screw the treasure, this is much more epic!
Eric: I should try to get those Coveted Darkness Orbs before I confront Merevelous again.
Kiara: Yeaaaaah, slight problem. Merevelous kinda recollected them back into one big orb, and that's how he has more power now.
John: Plus, we're the only help you've got now. The rest of the Battle Buddies are sided with Merev, as well as the rest of the population.
Eric: Then what should I do?!
Kiara: Lie back and wait for an opening? Um....defeat your opponent in mid-speech? Uh, no....that won't work. Um...
John: I got it! He should go to the Spirit Altar and channel the power of Sixty Four!
Eric: But that got me killed last time!
Kiara: That's because you were given it suddenly and shortly. But now, you can channel it differently and control it!
Eric: Wait, can I see the Surface World at this Spirit Altar?
John: I think, why?
Eric [whispers]: Mom...
Will Eric reach the Spirit Altar?
How is Amy doing?
