The First Cross:
The Crystalline Genesis

...
...
...
"Where... could you be...?"
...
"In this cataclysm of a world..."
...
[By now, Team Time and Cruce's team have left the school with their own goals. Little did they known a third team would be working in the chaos.]
...
"Slianna, Rilia... we can't stay here anymore..."
...
(C r u c e -- A l -- P a c h i)

-Crystal Forest.-

...
[Outside, it is evident that the world has undergone mass metamorphosis. Trees have sprouted up virtually everywhere overnight, obscuring the school and surrounding areas, and then those surrounding areas. The region has become a giant forest with crystals towering high and joining the trees. Some crystals protrude from the trees themselves.]
...
Al: [Staring into the forest...] Uh, how long did we sleep?
Cruce: I venture pretty long... It felt like we slept normally.
Pachi: This is most likely because presences that should not be on this world are on this world. In summation, Earth is suffering from the Ecliptic Pull.
Cruce: Ecliptic Pull, Pachi?
Pachi: It's a bit difficult to explain. I'll tell you more about it soon.
Cruce: Gotcha.
Al: I can't believe this happened... How will we know where to go?
Cruce: Gah, good point... [He lowers his head, staring at his paws in the snow.] If I was still a Shaymin, I could fly above the trees and give us some info on where to head.
Pachi: The way I see it, you must have a unique ability in place of fight as a Safan.
Cruce: You think so? Flight was so natural to me... I'll find out what I can do while we're moving. For now, let's try to get as much high ground as we can. [He starts off, leading the two uphill to the lunch tables near the playground.]
...
Al: See anything? [Searching throughout the tables.]
Cruce: Nope... [Looks back at Al.] What're you looking for?
Al: ...Well... [He pulls out his weapon from his pocket.] Bongo gave me this yesterday. He said that crazy guy dropped it.
Pachi: Crazy guy?
Al: I think you were the one to stop him from totally blowing Emelina's head off.
Pachi: Oh, I remember... Bongo took his um... what were they called? Guns?
Cruce: Yep. I never pictured you with a gun of any sort, dude. It's kinda scaring me.
Al: I'm gonna need it, trust me... I think I remember how to use these things from when I was practicing on a firing range.
Cruce: Whoa, you never told me about that!
Al: Yeah I did! Just now.
Pachi: [While they talk, he looks to the roof of the classrooms while standing on one of the tables...] Hmm... Hey Cruce... Al... How heavy are these tables?
Al: What? The tables? ...I'm not sure... I can't pick one up. Maybe if Nic were here, we could move them. Three people, and I mean humans, could move one easily.
Pachi: Okay. Thanks! [He looks to one of the tables to his left... His body begins shimmering, but not with electricity. A bluish glow surrounds he and the table he stares at... Suddenly the table begins levitating at his command.]
...
Cruce: Pachi?! How the heck?!
Al: ...He's making that table float... Awesome... I didn't think he was a psychic-type.
Cruce: He's not! Thsi is totally blowing my mind...
Pachi: Actually, mind's the key word here! It's not psychic-type. It's mind magic. [He smiles, looking back at Cruce and Al.] They all thought it was a "type-mutation", but it's because I'm an Eclipse I'm able to do this.
Al: Whoa.... So Eclipses can pretty much do anything they want?
Pachi: Nah, but we can sorta do a lot! Now follow me, I have an idea.
...
[They do as he says. Pachi leads them to the other side of the lunch area. They come to a broken section in the fence where a diagonal cluster of crystals has grown through it. The cluster leads up to the roof, but is not long enough to be called a bridge. This is where Pachi's plan comes into play. He finds a good place to wedge the bars of the table into the broken chain link fence. He sets the table softly into place, the tip of it laying on the roof and completing the bridge.]
...
Pachi: There! Now we can at least get a little higher and see where to go!
Cruce: ...Pachi, you're a genius...
Pachi: Hehe, shucks~. You're too kind.
Al: [Rolls his eyes...]
[The three carefully climb up the scrap bridge and reach the roof.]
Al: Trippy. I've never been up here before. [He observes the surroundings. They have become clearer.] Wow... this place got messed up.
Cruce: You're telling me...
[They walk from rooftop to rooftop, looking out at the forest. Trees do still tower over them...]
...
Pachi: It's starting to remind me more of the mystery dungeons back home... Hostiles lurking everywhere... Unknowns shrouded in mystery... And Darkness.
[They come to the end of this building, now looking down at the lower grade buildings and up at the church.]
Cruce: We need to get higher. We may be able to see more up on the church.
Al: How do we get up there from here?
Cruce: Maybe Pachi can make us levitate?
Pachi: Um... I can make others levitate, but I can only bring them so far out of radius with me. That building's too far... It's a good suggestion though.
Cruce: Hm... Let's get off of the roof then We're gonna have to find another way to the church.
Al: ...Cruce... Pachi... Look. [He points at a terrifying structure lost in the misty morning haze. It seems to be in the direction of Cruce's house, and rises above everything in its proximity. It can barely be seen passed the closer trees.]
Cruce: [He spots the structure.] That's where I first met Danielle... Mewtwo too.
Pachi: It was where my secret was revealed... and where we found the first Time Gear. Maybe we should head there.
Cruce: I agree. With all of these trees around, that's gonna be no easy task.
[They turn back, but as soon as they start heading back to the lunch area, a few al too familiar imps stand in their way.]
Cruce: When did they get here?!
Al: [Pulls out his weapon.]
Pachi: We gotta get rid of them, so Al... be careful! Humans are especially susceptible to Darkness, from what I've seen!
Al: Ah, damn... [He aims the gun at the Nightmares.]
[They move forward.]
Cruce: Get some lead in 'em!
[Al fires half of his clip of 16 rounds distributed as best as he can into the three Nightmares. One of them falls weakened.]
Al: That should help bring them down!
Pachi: [Releases a single thunder shock on the least hit Nightmare, vaporizing it with ease.]
Cruce: [Casts and ice elemental spell, shooting golden crystals of ice at the remaining Nightmares. The weakened one is now the last one remaining. Pachi releases a quick bolt of lightning on the imp, eliminating it as well.]
...
Al: Keep going?
Cruce: [He nods.] Let's!
[The group, now with the adrenaline flowing through their bodies, moves ahead. They leap over the gap that Pachi's bridge was build across, running back down to the benches. There, they see Team Time scanning the area in a rush.]
Pachi: Grovyle!
Grovyle: Mm?! [He turns to Pachi and the others who approach them.]
Celebi: Oh, they're still here?
Grovyle: Pachi, did you hear that noise?
Pachi: Noise?
Leafeon: Yeah, it sounded like eight little explosions.
Al: Oh, that was me. We had company.
Cruce: Be careful out here! Nightmares are lurking around.
Celebi: Still?!
Grovyle: I expected as much. Darkness loves areas such as these.
Leafeon: What happened to this place?!
Pachi: I believe the Ecliptic Pull as claimed this world...
Cruce: (Claimed...? Pachi scares me when he uses words like that.)
Celebi: I didn't think that was possible. It makes our job a bit harder.
Grovyle: It does. But we still have to pry on. If Nightmares are wandering the forest, it would be ideal to eliminate as many as we can.
Cruce: We'll play our part elsewhere. We have to keep going though.
Pachi: Good luck to you, Team Time!
Grovyle: And to you as well. Be careful out there.
[The three nod before running off into the forest, supposedly in the direction of the church...]
...
[They reach the overpass of the building, looking around the area for any signs of Darkness...]
Al: This is... this is insane...
[Crystals have sprung up all over the church grounds... A few have penetrated the glass that leads into the building.]
Cruce: Oh man, talk about vandalism...
Pachi: Hmm... I feel... something... [Pachi moves to the shattered window of the church, crawling through.]
...
Cruce: Pachi...?
Al: I think he went inside. Let's go after him, he could be onto something.
Cruce: Yeah.
[They follow Pachi's example, crawling through the broken window. A squeezes through, careful of the jagged crystals.]
Al: This... sucks. I'm not small like you guys.
Cruce: You've got a gun, man...
Al: You've got powers!
[The two of them are dumbfounded as they look ahead at the mystifying presence of the "redesigned" church. Trees have risen from the solid ground and reach the roof. Crystals glisten from this roof, has well as the ground. Strangely, the trees have grown slanted in some cases. The sunlight beams into the mosaic glass windows, revealing greenish spores floating throughout the building. This creates a magical sort of scene, though at the same time unnerving.]
Al: Good lord... What happened in here?
Cruce: You know... I'm glad this didn't happen where we were sleeping.
Pachi: The fact that it didn't says something about this place and what it holds.
Cruce: ...[He lowers his head.] ...(...A church was destroyed... but not a school building...? It... can't just be coincidence...?) [He looks up, spotting a unique glow near the altar. Once he identifies the source of this glow, his eyes widen.) T-Time Gear!
Pachi: What?! Noooo... Really?! [He looks around for it. His small size prevents him from seeing it passed the pews. He runs ahead... but suddenly, his motion is enough to disturb the structure of the building. Icicles and lights fall at in instant down upon Pachi.]
Pachi: [He cries out.]
Cruce: Pachi!!!
Al: Oh God... [He runs to Pachi's aid... but he cannot be seen underneath the debris.] Oh God, no...
Cruce: Pachi?! Can you hear me?!
...
[No response.]
...
Cruce: Sh-shiiiit!! Paaaachiiii!! [He closes his eyes, fighting back tears...]
...
...
...
~~~
...
...
...
Al: [Standing by Cruce's side.] Good lord... What happened in here?
Cruce: [Opens his eyes, tears beginning to stream down his face.] Hm...?
Pachi: Cruce, are you... Are you crying...? What's wrong?
Al: Wha...? [Looks down at Cruce.]
Cruce: P-Pachi...? Al...? What the... What happened...?
Al: ...What do you mean? We just... Wh-what do you mean, man?
Cruce: I... I don't know... I remember seeing a Time Gear... then Pachi ran for it, and... [He looks up at the unstable ceiling.]
Pachi: Time Gear, what?! Noooo... Really?! [He looks around for it. His small size prevents him from seeing it passed the pews.]
Cruce: !! [He gently bites the the fur on the back of Pachi's neck passed his tail.] Mm-mm! [He shakes his head a little, pulling Pachi back.]
Pachi: Waah! Cruce...? Where are we going?
Cruce: [He sets Pachi down at the entrance near the baptismal fountain. Pachi falls to his rump, sitting up and looking at Cruce curiously.] ...Sorry...
Pachi: Heavens, what's gotten into you Cruce?
Al: And what's... What's that glow...? [He walks toward it...]
Cruce: [Spins around.] Al, get back!! Stay away from the Time Gear!!
Al: Wh--Geez! Chill out... [He backs away from the aisle...]
Cruce: Nobody... goes down that aisle...
Al: Why? What's over there?
Cruce: ...[He shakes his head, closing his eyes.] Aggh, what the hell happened to me...?!
Al: I don't know, but you're freaking me out!
Pachi: [At this point, he notices the ceiling and how broken the lights are, as well as the unstable icicles.] Wait... He has a point... Look. [Points at the ceiling.]
Al: What...? [Looks to where Pachi is pointing.] ...'Looks like it'll fall at any moment. Want me to shoot them down so we can move on?
Cruce: Let's not mess with the roof of the building we're in... I can't risk it, I... I don't want to see... I... Ugh... [Shakes his head again.]
Al: ...A-alright... whatever.
Pachi: Where is the Time Gear, Cruce?
Cruce: It's at the altar. We'll need to find a different way there... He looks at down the row of pews... then up... the ceiling remains suspicious. The aisle to the left is blocked by trees and crystals. The aisle to the right, however, appears safe. It is narrow, but passable.] Let's take this one... [He walks ahead gingerly, looking up with almost every step he takes. There are no icicles... They turn the corner, facing down the hallway where all of the electrical equipment resides. It remains safe. The glow becomes brighter as they get closer to the Time Gear.]
...
Cruce: [Looks to the left, then up. The ceiling is unstable here... He simply leads the two down to the center of the hallway.] The Time Gear should be on the other side of this wall... [They come across something unexpected... A purple shimmering force-field.] Whoa... how'd this get here?
Pachi: Darkness must've set this all up... Here, I'll get this out of our way. [He readies a quick thundershock, aimed at the force-field... It does nothing.] ...Ah, crud... I thought it might be one of these.
Al: What is this thing...? Some sort of shield?
Pachi: It's a force-field that blocks the way for all but certain individuals. This shield is based on lightning, and since I'm an electric-type, I can pass.
Al: Oh, I get it. It's element-based... What should we do?
Pachi: ...I'll go on ahead. You two wait here, 'kay? [He walks through the force-field.]
Cruce: Please... Please be careful...
Pachi: [He nods.] I will. Don't worry.
...
Pachi: [He follows Cruce's instruction and looks up at the ceiling as he walks forward. He also looks for a switch of some kind... He passes the choir area, but keeps moving along the insider perimeter of the church. Now near the small prayer chamber, he peeks passed the trees, spotting the Time Gear as well as two small statues that appear to be switches.] Yes! Found them! But... I can't get over there from where I am now... It's hazardous, so I'll keep looking for a way...
...
Cruce: ...I'm... so worried...
Al: About what? Pachi's got this, man.
Cruce: ...I guess... I-I have faith in him... I just don't want to see him hurt...
Al: ...You care about that guy a little too much... [Shakes his head.]
Cruce: I feel like I have to. Al... Don't be mad at me for caring... please... I know you're my friend, too...
Al: ... [He sighs.]
Cruce: You're important to me... and the Circle... and you're other friends... I want us all to get out of this alive. It may be hard, but it's possible.
Al: ...[He kneels down to Cruce's level, petting his head.] Dude, it's okay. [He smirks.] Really.
Cruce: ...[Smiles up at Al.] ...Cool... Thanks~...
Al: Don't sweat it... Dude, what's it like being... one of them? In fact, two of them?
Cruce: An experience. I didn't think it was possible outside of V...
Al: I've never been anything else but a human in V. I'm really curious to see what it's like now... Maybe after this whole thing clears up, I can try it on Gathering Forces.
Cruce: Yeah, you should give it a shot. It's fun... but... Living it... it makes me realize how inaccurate we were about how I feel now... what it feels like to live like this, not to look like this.
Al: Heh, guess I'll never know that then.
...
Pachi: [He is now near a small table where the bread and wine is brought up for Communion. A central aisle leads straight to the altar, but it is blocked by a tree and a cluster of crystals. Pachi looks to the broken glass that leads into the infant's section of the church.] Oh~. [He proceeds through the broken glass and then back out, flanking the blockage. He may now proceed to the Time Gear. He does so carefully.] ...I'm here!
Cruce: Good going, Pachi! Is there a switch somewhere over there?
Pachi: Indeedy~! [He hits the purple switch, the other being blocked by a blue force-field.] I wonder what this other one is for though...
[The purple field vanishes. Cruce and Al walks through the hallway.]
Al: [Standing near the choir area.] Oh shoot... We couldn't see the route Pachi took...
Pachi: I'll guide you through! Just hug the left wall from where you are. I'll tell you when it gets tricky... which is not at all!
[They do as Pachi says, keeping close to the wall and walking slowly...]
...
[They reach the Communion table.]
Pachi: Alright! Now you gotta get around the blockade! Go into that room and come out around the tree. The glass is broken, so be careful not to get poked or anything!
[The two listen to Pachi's guidance, moving carefully through the glass windows until they reach the other side.]
...
[They join up with Pachi, who is now facing the Time Gear on the marble wall. Cruce and Al approach either side of him.]
Pachi: Good going! ...Let's get this back to Riolu and tell Team Time if we see them back out there.
Cruce: Got it, Al?
Al: Yeah. [He takes the gear from the wall, holding it carefully with both hands.]
[At that moment, a booby trap is sprung. As the markings vanish from the wall, it triggers a force-field that wraps itself in a half circle, practically caging the three against the marble wall. Its color: blue.]
Cruce: What the--?! [Spins around, nearly hitting the field with his tails.] Whoa! Close...
Pachi: Sh-shoot! They got us... Ah... I... I'm not seeing how we can get out of this...
Cruce: I don't wanna yell too loud for help or anything... It might cause the ceiling to come crashing down on us.
Pachi: This wall looks like it could withstand that. We'd be crushed... Give me time, I'll think of something...
...
[Al seems entranced by the Team Gear... He stares into it...]
...
Al: ... [He can hear the hum emitting from the relic...] ...(That sound...) ... (What's that sound...?)
...
"(Is that... a voice...?)"
...
"(It's getting louder...)"
...
[Incidentally, the hum can only be heard by Al as he stares into the Time Gear, oblivious to anything else...]
...
[All he can hear is the excruciatingly loud hum.]
...
"(Agh... Can't hear myself think!! It's... it's too loud...)"
...
[Al closes his eyes dropping the Time Gear.]
...
"(Ahhh!! ...My... My body feels like... it's... gone...)"
...
...
...
"Al...?! AL!!"
...
"What happened to him!?"
...
"He's... totally out... is he...? Is he waking up?"
...
...
...

...
Al: Ugh... Geez... Man...
...
Cruce: Al?! You with us, dude?!
Pachi: [Now holding the Time Gear.] Please be alright...
...
Al: [He opens his eyes.] ...My head... My... freaking body... Ow...
Cruce: You can pull through... c'mon... Y-you're alright...
Al: ...Easy... for you to say... [He tries to stand on two legs, but the stumbles, rolling out of the force-field.] Crap! Ouch!
Pachi: !! Water-type! A-Al! Could you hit that blue switch for us?
Al: Wha...? [Looks around for it... He spots the switch encased in the blue field.] I can't get through it... Wait... [Looks back to see he is out of the field trap.] I... can get through it...?
Cruce: Al, you're a Mudkip; a water-type! Didn't you hear, the public likes you! You got this!
Al: ...[He crawls as best as he can toward the switch, tapping it... The blue fields vanish, freeing the other two. Al just lays there now.]
Cruce: Swee-he-heeet freedom! [He steps forward.] ...Nice going... Now, HOW THE HECK DID THAT--Oh right, voices down.
Pachi: I think he established some sort of connection with the Time Gear... then the Ecliptic Pull worked its magic from there.
Al: I'm a Pokémon...? ...Holy crap... This is... iiiiiinsaaaaaane... [He looks up at the switch in front of him.] You're right Cruce... It feels weeeird!
Cruce: See, you do get to know what it's like. It just takes irony. We have plenty of that, apparently.
Al: [He stands on all fours, looking down.] I have to stand... walk... run... like this?! [He turns around slowly.] Er... I can't... do that... easily.
Cruce: It's simple to get the hang of. C'mon, let's practice while getting back outside.
Pachi: Be alert though...
Cruce: Trust me... I haven't forgotten the hazards we're hopping around.
Al: [Gulp.] ... [He looks down the altar. Cruce and Pachi head down, waiting for Al.]
Cruce: It's no different than crawling, really. The thing that's psyching you out is the different body structure. You have to crawl, basically.
Al: Crawling... sure... Um... [He starts slowly until he reaches the steps...] Uh... right... [He takes a big step down with one foot, then the next... then the next, and the next. He does the same for the next two steps.] Alright, I... I got this.
Pachi: See? It's like Cruce said! Easy! ...
Cruce: Al... where'd your gun go?
Al: [He looks from side to side...] Uhh... Where'd my -clothes- go...?
Pachi: Did they disappear when he changed?
Al: I think they got vaporized, or something... You know... the whole Time Gear energy thing?
Pachi: Ah, the Ecliptic Pull must've done that.
Cruce: (Ecliptic Pull... He's making me so curious with that thing...) I guess it doesn't matter anymore. You've got powers! ...But first you gotta learn how to, you know... walk...
Al: I can't wait... Really, I can't. That sounds hot.
Cruce: Ironically, it's water. But hey! I told you we have plenty of irony. Anyway, think you can keep up with us?
Al: If you go real slow... then yeah.
[Pachi: Don't worry! We have no choice but to go slow in here.
Cruce: Yep. Just do your best.
Al: [Nods.] Alright.
...
[Slowly but surely, Al picks up enough experience as they walk through the church. They reach the entrance again without disturbing the icicles or lights...]
...
[Outside, it is now broad daylight, concealed by some clouds.]
...
Al: I think I got the hang of this.
Cruce: Cool! Now let's get back to the classroom so that--
Leafeon: [Crashes into a tree in front of them.] Ack!!
Pachi: Leafeon!!
Leafeon: [He stands back up.] You three! Look out! We've got Nightmares [Sounds of battle can be heard nearby.] Heads up! [As a stranger looking Nightmare runs for him, he charges up a quick energy ball at his mouth, then blows it forth, impacting with the Nightmare and knocking it back.]
Cruce: What was that?!
Leafeon: A Nightmare! We're up against Pokémon NIghtmares and I'm pretty sure the others are Safans! [He turns to Pachi.] Looks like you found a Time Gear! Quick, get that ba--...[Notices Al...] ...What...? ...How did... you... get here...?
Al: Huh?! What?! When!? ...Why?!
Leafeon: [He quickly shakes the thought and resumes the battle.]
Pachi: We have to wait here! We can't risk this Time Gear getting into the hands of Darkness.]
Cruce: We'll cover you until it clears up!
Al: W-wait, I... I don't know how to fight like this yet!
Cruce: Don't worry, I got you too.
Al: ...Thanks...
Cruce: [He waits, ready for any Nightmare that comes his way...] ... [Luckily, he does not have to deal with any.]
...
Leafeon: They're over here! [He leads Grovyle and Celebi to the three.] There they are.
Celebi: With a Time Gear! Way to go!
Grovyle: [With his jaw open wide as he stares at Al.] ... It's you...
Al: What? [Looks around.] Me?
Celebi: Al...
Al: Yes, what? What's wrong? Oh, right. I'm a Mudkip.
Cruce: Um... Are you guys confusing him for someone else?
Pachi: I think they are. I remember Grovle mentioning something about a Mudkip once... I think... his name was Al... and a Torchic named Adam. I'm not expert on how life and death works, but... If this Al... became a Mudkip... it could have something to do with time and space... This could be the same Al Grovyle and Celebi knew long before this happened.
Al: Wait, what's going on?
Grovyle: ...Just seeing you like this, Al... You cannot understand how refreshing it is to see an old friend after all that has happened...
Al: Old friend...? But, I was born here... I just turned into a Pokémon!
Pachi: ...Yes, but what are the odds of you becoming a Mudkip at the presence of a Time Gear. And your name... Al...
Cruce: (Yikes, there's really a whole story behind all of this? I'm still trying to get over the fact that Al really is a Mudkip.)
Al: ...I'm... not who you think I am... I-I don't know for sure, to be honest, but... I just... I'm just a kid...
Celebi: ...Something tells me you're so much more.
Al: More? ...How can I be more...? I was born here... On this planet...
Cruce: Al, man... [He comes closer to Al.] I know how you feel...
Al: [Looks up at Cruce, frowning.] ...Oh...
Cruce: I really do...
...
Grovyle: We... must return to the classroom. It is dangerous out here. Come, we will guide you.
...
[Team Time protects the other three as they reach the classrooms again after working through a small maze of trees and crystals. As they reach the entrance area, three familiar characters are already there...]
...
[The larger group faces them as they stand in front of the classroom walls.]
...
Grovyle: ...Where do you three think you're going?
Safiri: That's none of your business...
Rilia: Please move. We're not up to anything bad... We need to go... out...
Slianna: It's too dangerous here.
Cruce: ...What?
Celebi: Cruce, don't...
Cruce: No, this is ridiculous... You guys are not safer anywhere else. This is our outpost... We all need this place...
Safiri: So you really think this is a safe haven, Shade Lover?
Cruce: Shade Lo--Safiri, c'mon... Drop that. I'm not--
Safiri: I'm not going to drop something that could mean potential death for all of us! We're leaving because of you and those brutes. [Looking at Team Time.]
Slianna: We know how Danny works! It's not gonna end well for any of us if you keep going like this, Cruce.
Grovyle: You musn't hold such a grudge against us! You initiated an attack on Celebi, and I will never stand idly by and watch that.
Safiri: It wasn't meant for Celebi! It was meant for that bonehead! [Looking at Cruce.]
Cruce: ...I'm open now.
[Everyone looks at Cruce.]
Safiri: [Raises a brow.]
Cruce: ...No one's going to get in your way if you try that again...
Safiri: ...
Cruce: So come at me.
Safiri: You're picking a fight... with me? Heh... me? Really?
Cruce: Picking? Nah. I'm letting you chose if you want to fight me. I'm not gonna strike the first blow.
Safiri: [She cocks her head back a bit.] Playing that way, huh? Making me look like the bad Safan...
Cruce: Again, that's your choice. You're not a bad Safan. Not at all. In fact, though it's risky, go ahead and leave. I wanted you three to stay here because I cared for your safety. But now you've gone and hurt me, you know? I don't hate you for it... or dislike you. I'm willing to give you a second chance if you're willing to give me a break, Safiri.
Safiri: ...Gee... If you cared for our safety then you would've dumped that Princess by now... Sorry... but we're leaving...
...
[The three Safans start off into the forest.]
...
"What a shame..."
...
"I loved those three..."
...
"But now they're real."
