With the meeting over, they head outside the castle.
Kain: So Cecil, do anything interesting today?
Cecil: Yeah! I got to kick a bunch of mages’ asses today. And you?
Kain: Heh… this kid told me a secret about a girl he liked, and then I told her everything!
Cecil: You’re such a traitor, Kain.
Kain: You know it.
Kain: Anyway…. I was thinking about bringing up how the king brought us up together, and how we’re really like brothers and all…. but I can’t seem to find the right words. Maybe several years from now, when we have more money, and our dialogue is better, I’ll tell you then.
Cecil: Sounds good to me! Anyway, with all these monsters outside, that are no doubt weaker than those mages I beat up today, I’m sure we’ll nonetheless have to heal ourselves periodically, and grow drastically stronger after this mission.
Kain: Well let’s be going then.
The duo of Cecil and Kain traveled north, decimating the nearby enemies that would oppose them. They arrive at a cave, covered in mist.
Cecil: What the hell? I can’t see a thing in here!
Kain: Hmm…. Up ahead there seems to be where the mist is coming from, let’s check it out.
The mist converges into the shape of a dragon
M. Dragon: Hey, you two, with the gigantic heads, out of my cave!
Cecil: Oh boy! A dragon! Let’s kick its misty ass!
M. Dragon: How impudent! Ordinarily, I would go back and forth from being normal, to a form that counters your every move with a massive attack, but just for that, I’m going to sit in front of the exit of the cave in the countering form.
The dragon turns extra misty
Cecil: Whatever….. DARK WAVE!!!!
Cecil is countered for a ton of damage
Cecil: ….Ow…. coupled with me hurting myself on Dark Wave, that almost did me in. Kain! Maybe that bag we’re carrying around with us has something that could help.
Kain: But this is our charge from the king. By our honor we should…..
Cecil: Kain, I’m a dark knight and you betray someone every five seconds, I don’t really think “honor” is a problem.
Kain: Fair enough.
Kain looks in the bag, finding something of great interest.
Kain: Holy shit!! This thing is filled to the brim with bombs!
Cecil: Good! Toss it here!
Kain: Ok. The bag is tossed
Cecil: Shove this up your ass and die! Cecil throws the bag at the dragon. It goes “Boom”.
Strangely enough, an explosion that big in an extra-dimensional bag has consequences. A large rift was opened in the fabric of the space-time continuum, certain to cause trouble in the future for our heroes!
Cecil: Oh shit.
