Track 4: Prepare Yourself, Mountain Creature
[birds chirping. Morgan(F) is snoring]
Morgan(M): [quietly] Morgan. Morgan!
Morgan(F): Ahh! [sits up] Oh… oh… Morgan!?
Morgan(F): [whispering] S-sorry… I fell fast asleep… ah… [slurp]
Morgan(M): It’s fine. Just sitting and watching really is boring. Anyway, they finally left. If we’re going to look for Lucina’s tiara, it has to be now.
Morgan(F): Are you serious?
Morgan(M): Just to be sure. Be quiet, okay?
[BGM, very soft: “Agh! Won goph in mah mouph! Blech! Ptooey!”]
[they run across the grass. door creaks open and they walk inside]
Morgan(M): Tiara… tiara… oh, there! It really is Lucina’s. There’s no mistaking it.
Morgan(F): There are dresses and jewels over here. Are those people actually really rich?
Morgan(M): No, it looks like it’s all stolen.
Morgan(M): Yeah. When those two were talking, I found out they use the Risen to steal from other Outrealms. They give the stolen goods to each other as presents.
Morgan(F): Whoa… that’s serious dedication.
Morgan(M): Now that we know they’re stolen, we have to return these things to their owners.
Morgan(F): But… how?
Morgan(M): We’ll use the Outrealm Gate here. According to Anna, the people and objects that go through it go back to their own worlds.
Morgan(F): I see! You’re a pretty good strategist, Morgan!
Morgan(M): Well, of course! After all, my mother is a genius! I’m the son of the best tactician in the world! I can at least do this much!
Morgan(F): Mrr… the “best in the world”? I can’t let that slide. My father’s the more amazing tactician.
Morgan(M): No, my mother is better.
Morgan(F): No, my father is!
[both growl and glare at each other, sparks flying]
Morgan(M): [sigh] Anyway, now isn’t the time for this!
Morgan(F): You’re right. If we throw the things in here, they’ll automatically go back to their own worlds, right?
Morgan(F): Got it! Then let’s hurry and toss the tiara in! Yay!
Morgan(M): Huuh? Why’d you throw it on the floor?
Morgan(F): Sorry! I got too excited! Ahaha! [picks up the tiara]
Morgan(M): Geez… what if it broke? Don’t mess up this time.
Morgan(F): Of course. Okay, okay. [pause] Haa!
[glowing sound of the gate activating, then whistle of something falling and landing with a clink]
Morgan(F): There! I did it this time!
Morgan(M): Heh. Good job. Let’s return everything else to their worlds the same way.
[birds tweeting, people walking]
Owain: [sigh] We’ll reach yesterday’s campsite soon as we leave the forest.
Noire: I hope we can find Lucina’s tiara.
Inigo: Don’t worry. We’ll definitely find it. Let’s believe that and do our best.
[faraway whistle of something falling, then a chime]
Inigo: What’s wrong, Noire?
Noire: I just… heard a familiar sound…
Inigo: No way… enemies?
Noire: No, that’s not it. Not enemies, but something--
Owain: Oh! H-hey! Look! There’s someone hurt over there!
Noire: Eek! Y-you’re right! Maybe I heard someone yelling for help!
Inigo: This is bad! If only Brady were here…
Owain: Anyway, let’s go help them!
[they run over]
Owain: Hey, you okay? What in the world are you doing here?
[long, low growl]
Noire: ...a bear?
Inigo: It’s a bear, huh?
Owain: [straightens up] Oh, it was just a bear. Wait…
Owain/Inigo/Noire: A BEAAAAAAAAAAAAAR!?
[BGM: Annihilation (Galvanised)]
[Owain, Inigo, and Noire scream and begin running]
Owain: [still running] Hey, Noire! Was it a bear you heard?
Noire: I don’t think so! But I’m sorry if I was wrong!
Inigo: Anyway, we have to do something! ...right, Owain! Use one of your special attacks on it! You’ve got a ton of them, right? They’ve gotta be amazing!
Owain: Huh!? Uh, um, er… I apologize, but the time has not yet come!
Inigo: Huuh!? What’s with you?
[sound of something flaring up and bursting]
Inigo: What’s wrong, Noire?
Noire: YOU REFUSE TO FACE IT? AND YOU MEN DARE CALL YOURSELVES SOLDIERS?
Noire: YOU INTEND TO RUN FROM THAT MOUNTAIN CREATURE WITH YOUR TAILS BETWEEN YOUR LEGS!?
Owain: W-well, yeah?
Inigo: There’s nothing we can do! That’s why we’re running!
Noire: [stops, breathes hard] HMPH. VERY WELL. THEN I SHALL GIVE YOU A TASTE OF MY FULL STRENGTH!
[power flaring up]
[the boys stop running]
Owain: Wait, what? What’s she doing?
Noire: PREPARE YOURSELF, MOUNTAIN CREATURE! [shoots; arrow is charged with power] TO THE ABYSS WITH YOU!
[bear roars; arrow hits it like a jet plane]
[faraway thunder, birds taking flight]
Cynthia: Huh? What was that sound?
Cynthia: It sounded like something exploded. Like a hero’s special attack!
Gerome: I didn’t hear anything.
Cynthia: Oh… really…
Gerome: More importantly, did you learn anything from the villagers?
[BGM, very soft: Id (Beginnings)]
Cynthia: Yeah. There’ve been a lot of thefts in the village lately. Things are there one night and gone the next morning.
Gerome: The same as with the tiara.
Cynthia: And the stuff stolen from the village is things like dresses and jewels and flowerpots, even though there aren’t any flowers in them. Hm… maybe the culprit likes gardening.
Gerome: It bothers me that there’s no consistency in what’s stolen. If the thefts occur at night, it’s likely that they are carried out by Risen.
Cynthia: The Risen don’t look smart enough for that.
Gerome: I have some information too. Yesterday, someone was spotted carrying what may have been stolen property in the forest near our campsite.
Cynthia: Whoooa! Just what we needed! You’re amazing!
Gerome: Though they may have been mistaken.
Cynthia: Anyway, we have to go look. Maybe we can pick up their trail, and Noire and the others might be in that forest too.
Gerome: I hope they have some information.
Cynthia: Yeah! Then we’ll fly to the forest! Soar, my pegasus!
[pegasus neighs and takes off]
Gerome: We’re going too, Minerva!
[Minerva bellows and follows]
