Last time on Second to Last Fantasy, Kain and Cecil found themselves warped out of their natural reality… Finding a forest surrounded in mist, our heroes were beset upon by… well… our, other heroes. However, once asked where he’s from, Kain has a little difficulty explaining his situation.
Kain: Well, I’m uh…. From… uh…
Sabin: An alternate dimension?
Kain: Yes! Exactly! How did you know? Did you sense it with your inner power?
Sabin: What? No, no… I just noticed the whole “I’m trapped in an alternate dimension and I don’t know how to tell these yokels” look on your face. I’m very empathetic that way.
Kain: Oh, ok! Well, then you’re the locals, just where the hell are we?
Sabin: Well, I uh… really don’t know.
Cyan: You see, young sir, we happen to be lost in this forest.
Kain: Well, I suppose that the two of us could help you out if you promise to do the same for us.
Sabin: I have another important engagement I have to make, but afterwards, I suppose my friends can help you.
At this point, Cecil awakens and Shadow appears from the bushes. The situation is explained to both of them, and they both agree to the terms.
Sabin: Just one thing… One of you has to stay here.
Cecil: Why? What sense does that make?
Sabin: Well, obviously only four people at a time can travel safely together.
Cecil: What are you talking about?! The standard unit has five party members, and there are five of us!
Sabin: Five?! Are you saying that if you lead, then FIVE people can travel?
Cecil: Of course! Now lets get the hell out of this forest.
Several uneventful hours later
Cecil: Damn! There’s that recovery stream again! How do you guys get around in here?!
Shadow: I was showing us the right way to go…
Kain: You got us attacked by 30 ghosts!
Shadow: We attacked them. And Cyan didn’t get hurt too badly.
Kain: Anyway, I’ll show you a REAL plan!
Kain leaps high into a nearby tree
Sabin: Wow! Dragoon boots! My brother’s been looking for a set of those, wherever did you get them?
Kain: They were a gift from the King of Baron.
Sabin: Which? The King or the Baron?
Kain: No, the King OF Baron.
Sabin: Why do the Barons have their own king?
Kain: No. The King…. Of the country…. BARON!!!
Sabin: Oh, ok. Like the Duke of Earl!
Sabin: I always wondered why the Earls had their own Duke….
Kain: Here ghosty ghosty ghosty….
A ghost approaches Kain… he is attacked
Kain: Come on….
The ghost uses “Blaze” on Kain. His tree catches fire…
Kain: YES!!! Everyone, get in the recovery stream!
Several extra crispy hours later…
Sabin: You… burnt…. down… the… forest… When the environmentalists have my brother’s ass, he’ll… well… have my ass.
Kain: Yeah, well nature had it coming. And at least now we can see the way out! We’ll just take that train.
However, another problem immediately presents itself
Cyan: Where yonder is Shadow? And Cecil for that matter?
Stay tuned for the next installment of Second to Last Fantasy!!!!!!!
