Keli opens her eyes, and shakes her head
Leeta pokes Mariah. "Wake up!"
Mariah: OW! Mariah wakes up W-what time is it?
Akira puts chestnuts in and tries to take them out bare-handed
Leeta glances at her watch
Keli yawns and stretches
Mariah shakes the cobwebs out of her head "Yesterday sucked.."
Leeta shudders at the memory of yesterday

Akira puts the fire out and continues practicing at the fire
Mekare: hehehhe! Good one Leeta!
Keli: Stop, drop and roll, Akira
Leeta: Thanks Mekare! Grins
Derek glares at Leeta.
Mariah just laughs.
Leeta: Ah, Derek, I'm sorry....Frowns, and hands Derek a tonic
Keli: Time to wake up, Derek..
Mariah: Don't worry Derek, she did it to me too!
Akira: Owwww... hehehe. I wish learning this move was easier!
Mariah: Well...where are we off to today?
Derek looks at Akira strangely.
Keli: We'll see...
Mariah: Akira, are you a pyromaniac or something... ?
Leeta looks at the sky
Derek: I think we should go look for Iris instead of her always coming after us.
Akira quits with the fire and starts practicing his martial arts. No, I'm not.
Mariah: What about...THAT! Points at the monster head from yesterday. Shouldn't we turn that in?
Leeta: Who wants monster burger?
Derek: Yeah, good point. I want the money after all that work.
Leeta walks over to the corpse. sword unsheathed

Akira: Money!!!!!!!! Akira smiles for once
Keli: Umm... I have to agree with Mariah...
Leeta: So.....who is gonna carrry it?
Mariah: Why don't we go back to Porre and turn it in? Mariah turns to Leeta and shudders…Not me.
Akira: We have to get out of here first
Keli: Me? Heck no!
Leeta asks Akira if he'll carry it?
Mariah: Yeah, Let's go back to Porre...and I'll take it, I guess.. Mariah picks the head up, trying not to spew
Akira: I'll carry it.
Derek: I'm not touching that.
Leeta: Thought so. Leeta grins
Derek: Let Akira handle it, Mariah. He's the one that wanted to join so badly.
Akira: I offered.
Mariah: Hehe, true!
Leeta: Yeah. Let him do it.
Mariah throws it to Akira. Have fun! Let's go back!
Akira douses the flames and eats the chestnuts Akira then catches the head.
Mariah runs back in the direction of Porre.
Derek walks after the others.

Later, the team finds themselves back in Porre..
Keli hands Mariah some surgery gloves from her pouch.
Leeta looks around
Mariah: Ok, so where do we get our money..?
Derek: Does anyone remember where the bounty hunter agency was?
Keli: Keep your hands clean Akira holds the head.
Mariah: Thanks Keli, but Akira has the head....thank god.
Leeta points at the house where they have to go
Mariah: Hey! Over there! I see it! Mariah runs into the bounty office
Akira: What a stench
Leeta enters the office
Akira follows Mariah with the head
Mariah runs inside to the desk and dings a little bell "Heeelllo! Anyone there?? Hellloo"
Akira sets the head on the desk
Leeta yells "HELLLLLO?!"
Derek: Hey! We've got your monster. Give us our money!
Akira: How much do I get?
A tall bearded guy comes in Hello lovie! What can I get for ya?
Mariah: We got the monster!!!
Derek: We're here to turn in this head.
Mariah points to it
Akira: It stinks!
Bounty Guy: WHOA! That's it all right! How the hell did you kill it?

Derek: Five thousand? That's IT?

Leeta: ONLY 5000?
Mariah: Bounty Guy Hey! Monsters are plentiful these days!
Keli: Is it worth it, guys?
Derek: Not monsters like this! One of us almost got killed!
Keli agrees with Akira
Bounty Guy I can't pay top dollar anymore!!
Akira: MORE MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Leeta grabs the Bount guy by the collar of his shirt
Derek: Think of it this way...we handled this monster with no problem. What do you think we could do to you?
Keli: Don't be greedy, Akira...
Bounty Guy OK! OK! 7000GP, and that's my final offer!!
Akira: Fine than we'll use a life potion on it.
Aleria walks into the room
Leeta: Monster as big and ugly as this deserve a bit more money don't you think?!
Derek: What do you think, Mariah? 7000?
Mariah: That seems ok to me..
Akira starts to pull out the life potion
Mariah: More money than I've ever had!
Mariah: AKIRA! DON'T YOU DARE TOUCH THAT THING!
Leeta puts the guy down
Aleria: That's the ugliest thing I've ever seen!
Mariah: If you bring it back to life, I'll kill you!
Aleria: What is.... or rather was that?
Mariah turns to the sound of the voice..
Keli: 7000 ? Is that a lot of money in this era?
Akira: Just trying to get more money…. Huh?
Mariah looks at the woman, and stares. Wha..?
Akira turns toward voice
Mariah: Boy her ears are long...oops!
Derek: Another woman...I bet she's out to get us! Every time we meet a woman, they're out to get us!
Leeta looks at the woman
Mariah: Forget I said that..hehe.
Aleria: Giggles That's OK!
Mariah: She seems nice to me, Derek.
Mekare: Don't be Paranoid!
Derek: Well, just think of Iris, and Hydra, and Voira, and Lucca...
Mariah: Yeah, but what about Sta..oh nevermind…
Aleria: I haven't any of you around here recently. where are you from?
Mariah: Well, I'm from way after the day after tomorrow..
Derek: I'm from Kajar.
Akira: I have no home.
Mariah: I'm Mariah..from Truce, Cira 1030 AD! How do you do miss..miss...uh?
Aleria: Oh, I'm sorry. My name is Aleria
Bounty Guy: So, you want 7000 GP for this?

Leeta: Yes. 7000
Mekare: I say go for it, that guy is lookin' at me funny..
Aleria: Kajar. hhhmmm. Where have I heard of that before?
Bounty Guy here you go! Pays the cash! Now....
--A Guy comes into the shop and starts speaking with the bounty guy--
Mariah: Kajar...? That's..Zeal! My mom told me about it once..
Derek: Yeah. I thought I'd told you before, Mariah.
Akira whispers to Mariah "Who's that guy?"
Mariah: You did, but I don't think you told me the city you're from.
Leeta looks at the new guy
Mariah: Which guy, Akira..?
Aleria: My mother told me of it before she... passed away
Akira: The one who just entered this building
Bounty Guy: WHAT?!!! What do you mean Medina's under attack!
Bounty Guy: Well, go bug the Gaurdia army about that! Don't bug me!
Akira: Maybe he's there.... We have to go!
Mariah: Isn't that where......
Derek: Hey...uh...how much reward do we get for saving a city?
Mekare: Oh Crap! That's where the mystics live!
Aleria: Nice to meet you uumm.. did you say your name was Mariah?
Mekare runs out of the shop.
Mariah: Yeah. Are you going to that Village, Aleria?
Aleria: Sure. do you mind if I tag along?
Mariah: Ok! Mariah runs out, then wonders...hey! How the hell do we get there?
Akira: Let's Go!!!!
Derek: Well, I suppose swimming there would be out of the question.
Mariah: How about a ferry?
Aleria follows Mariah.
Mariah: Do they have Ferries in this era?
Akira follows them "Come on Keli!"
Derek: How would I know?
Keli: Okay! follows Akira
Mariah: Wait...oh no....I think I know the way we'll get there...and I don't like it..
Aleria: What is it?
Drunk Sailor: HEEEY! YOU AGAIN!
Derek: Oh, no...
Leeta: Not him again.
Akira: Who's the drunk?
Derek starts to consider the merits of swimming.
Aleria points at the sailor
Mariah: A Sailor.
Derek taps Mariah on the shoulder.
Keli: Who is this person?
Drunk Sailor: Wanna nother ride, prudy lady?

Leeta, Akira, and Derek walk on to the boat
Mariah: Wow. Akira did come in handy
Aleria and Keli walk on the boat
Location: Open Ocean-630 A.D.
The boat begins to sail to Medina...
Mariah sniffs the sea air.. Hey Derek...
Akira: Are we there yet?
Derek looks up Yes?
Keli: I hope the current doesn't get us off the route
Mariah: Do you like the sea?
Leeta pukes over the side
Derek: Never been on it before much.
Mariah: Really? I live by it, and I love to walk the beaches all the time..
Derek: Zeal was a kingdom in the air, you know.
Aleria walks over to Derek
Mariah: Oh, I know...do you like it now, though..?
Akira takes out a Shogi board. "Anyone want to play?"
Derek: I guess. Kind of boring..
Keli: Ah, nature... sigh
Mariah: I think it's beautiful.
Keli looks out at the view
Mariah: Hey, Derek..
Derek: Well, I guess the sea is. But I hate being trapped on this boat.
Mariah: You think sometime you'd like to walk the beach with me, just for fun..
Akira starts playing Derek! "Gotcha!"
Aleria: I love the sea!
Mekare, who has been quiet for awhile, looks up with intrest
Derek: Uh? ....I guess.
Keli: Too bad I can't swim... I feel like jumping into the water...
Aleria looks happy
Mariah: Oh thank you! Mariah Hugs Derek
Akira is winning!!!
Derek mutters to himself, "It's working.."
Derek: Huh? Oh, nothing.
Mariah: Oh, Ok...HEY! We're here guys! I see land!
Akira: What's that Derek? Points Akira then puts a piece in his mouth
Derek: Um, are you okay Akira?
Akira: I love Shogi!!
Drunk Sailor Here ya are *Hic* thank you, come again! *Hic*
Mariah: Thank GOD! let's get off this boat!
Derek: Yeah, we'll come again all right...you just keep believing that. Derek hops off.
Keli climbs off the boat
Aleria steps off the boat
Location: Medina Village-630 A.D.
Mariah runs off the boat, and sees fire in the distance....
Leeta laughs and steps off the boat
Akira jumps off
Mariah: Oh no..
Keli: Nice ride, eh?
Aleria runs after Mariah
Leeta: Fire? Uh oh.
Keli looks up "Eh?"
Akira runs after them
Akira: If he's there he will die!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
Derek heads toward the village as fast as he can
Mariah runs and trips over a rock! Damn!
Keli sprints to catch up with the others
Akira puts his claws on
Akira picks her up and carries her
Leeta stops and looks at Mariah
Aleria asks Mariah what Akira is screaming about?
Leeta: Girl? You okay?
Mariah: Ahh! Put me down! AAAH!
Keli stops, to see if Mariah's okay
Mariah: I'm fine..sheesh, I trip over a rock and suddenly it's like I'm on my death bed!
Akira puts her down and speeds up laughing like a maniac
Leeta tells Akira to put her down!
Aleria points at Akira Whats up with him?
Mariah keeps running and sees a mystic running to the village as well....
Akira: KILL!!! KILLL!!!!
Mariah: Sir! Can you tell me what happened?
Aleria runs after Akira
Akira looks for a certain mystic
Kane sniffs at Mariah.. We're under attack, obviously!!!
Mariah raises her eyebrows. Well, do you know who?
Keli: Eww... get it away, GET IT AWAY!!
Mekare: Yeah! WHO!
Aleria walks over to whoever Mariah is talking to
Akira stops and looks for who is attacking
Derek gapes at the monster.
Keli tries to shoo the monster away...
Kane: I don't know!!!
Keli: Leave us alone!
Mariah: Well, we'll find out!
Kane glares viciously at Keli...
Akira: Where is he!!!! WHERE!!!!!!!!!!!
Kane: We don't need your help, human!!!
Aleria says hello to the person everyone is talking to
Mekare: Don't worry, he's a mystic like me!
Keli stares oddly at Kane.
Akira runs over with the group
Keli: Okay... he just started sniffing Mariah...
Akira: You shouldn't talk to a lady like that punk
Derek: That's an awfully ugly mystic...
Aleria asks what's going on here
Mekare nods at the mystic We're wasting time! Let's go!
Kane looks over at Derek and blinks, eyes shining...
Mariah runs into the village.
Kane turns his back and scampers toward the village
Aleria runs after Kane
Akira continues looking for the certain mystic
Keli runs to the village
Akira grabs a random Medina citizen
Mariah: Akira! Heel boy!
Aleria: Akira, who are you looking for?
Akira: Have you seen a mystic with an eyepatch and a huge scar?
Keli gasps for air "Man. I gotta excersize more.."
Derek: Wonder what his problem was.
George loses his patience and grabs the mystic by the shoulder and asks him what does he know about what's happening.
Akira: Answer me damn you!!!
Mariah: Those people! In the center of the town..
Kane scampers away from George..."We don't know what's going on!!!"
Mariah: They look like.....
Mariah: Victor and Voria!
Voira: Hmm? Did someone call us hunnie?
Kane spreads his wings, and takes to the air...
George: Wh- what in the...?
Akira knocks the mystic silly "BAKA!"
Victor: Sounded like it, dear...
Voria turns around.
Kane hovers above the two humans (?) terrorizing the village...
Derek: Those...those are the two that killed Damian!
Leeta blinks at the two people.
Keli: Those two? *Gulp*
Voira: Oh pooh..this isn't good..it's those brats again..
Victor: Hah! It's them again! Look, dear.
Akira calms down
Aleria: They dont look too nice…
Keli remembers Damian…
Mariah: You..you...I'll avenge Damain!!
Keli: Damnit... They killed Damian...
Aleria wonders where she's seen those two before.
Derek: Um, Aleria, they're not.
George glowers and gets out his sword slowly
Akira: I don't know you but I HATE you! Akira takes out some poison
Leeta draws her sword
Victor: You seriously think you'll defeat us?
Aleria: T-those are the two that burnt down my village!
Keli quickly takes out her foil
Kane extends his claws, and begins to circle Victor.
Akira dips his claws into the poison then puts the poison up
George: Old grievances die hard... and you BET we're gonna try!
Mariah: Let's finish this!
Leeta: C'mon you old foggey...lets rock
Keli: This one's for Damian!
Akira jumps at Victor. DIE!!!!
Victor leaps out of the way
Voira: Hmm hmm hmm...well now hun, who should we kill first..?
Kane divebombs Voira...
Aleria starts to chant
George: Try me, fiend.
Akira slashes at Voira
Enemies: Victor=1000 HP Voira=800 HP
Leeta leaps at Victor
Victor: Why do you humans care about what happens to these stupid mystics, anyway? Victor ducks as Leeta goes flying over his head.
George: Because they're people inside, whatever they may be on the outside.
Leeta hits the ground in a roll
Kane: You are far more unintelligent than we are, human...
Kane crouches and begins to chant
Aleria screams You killed my mother!
Derek unsheathes his staff.
Akira gets in a battle stance
Leeta chants and uses her anger to drive her sword deep into Victor
Victor tries to block, but fails! It hits for 145 HP damage!
Keli gets in on-guard position. Good job, Leeta!
Mariah smiles, and chants the spell of Lil' bomb! It hits Victor for 124 Hp damage!
Victor: Grraaaah! Victor casts Blaze Wave on the party! WHOA! It hits really really hard! 145 damage to all!
George grimaces and reels for a couple of seconds
Voira: Let's finish this hunnie hun
Derek 's shirt starts to burn Ahh! Derek rolls around on the ground
Voira kisses Victor
Keli hits Voria REALLY hard, avenging Damain. It hits for 200 Hp damage!
Victor smooches Voira
Kane frantically smacks his skin to extinguish the flame
Voira: To Keli You witch!
Victor Show them how to really attack, my love!
Voira chants, and casts Plasma rain on the party! It hits hard!! 200 HP damage!!
Derek falls to his knees
Keli: AGH! falls back
Victor laughs wickedly.
Akira starts to pass out
Mariah: We gotta retreat here! They're...too..strong..
The party is defeated…
Victor: Good shot, my lady!
George shields himself with his cape and gets thrown to the ground
Leeta falls to one knee and then rises up again
Voira smiles, then frowns..
Keli: I... can... barely move...
Voira: Hey..that one...
Aleria groans and tries to stand up
Voira points to Leeta..
Akira passes out
Mariah is semi concious..
Victor: Well, well...
Leeta glares at the two and burns with a fire
Voira: I never thought I'd see her again..
Victor: What do you think, Voira? Take our revenge now or leave her?
Akira starts to wake up
Leeta: Try me...you....slaughterers!
Voira: She's too much of a sapling to care about. Nothing like her father...
Victor: It wouldn't even be worth the effort.
Mariah: Leeta! Don't!
George rises up with difficulty and yells at Leeta to get away
Akira: We must retreat!!!!
Leeta leaps at the two, screaming
Victor slaps Leeta back in midair.
Voira: I mean, her father could protect the Queen far better than she could..OOPS!
Leeta falls to the ground and stumbles up again. C'mon....
Voira: covers her mouth. Said too much..
Leeta: Try me....
Voira: Let's go..
Victor: Maybe we'd better just leave, they're starting to get up again.We've got mystics to kill, after all!
Leeta growls and wipes the blood from her forehead
Voira chants a spell, and they both dissapear!!
Derek lies unconscious on the ground.
Leeta: GET BACK HEREEEEEE!!!!!!
Keli: ....... ...... ........ .....
Akira drinks a potion
Aleria faints and lands on the ground with a thud
Leeta slams her fists into the ground, casuing a shockwave
Kane rasps on the ground...
Keli struggles to get to her feet. Oww....
George falls down to his knees and shakes his head
Akira runs to a store and comes back with all the elixers he could find
George: This... is the pits...
Leeta: Those dumb bastards....
Akira gives everyone some
George: Goddam blasted pair of filthy...
Aleria drinks the elixer
Leeta shudders and falls over
Mariah tries to wake up.
Keli: Th...thank you, Akira...
Mariah: Oh...dear god..whew....
Star appears out of nowhere, and laughs...
Derek continues to lie there.
Mariah: We didn't even have a chance..
Akira: You're welcome.
George gets up and wishes he'd already learned Cure
Aleria starts to cry
Mekre is out of it
Mariah: Derek! Mariah shakes him. Wake up!
Keli hands Aleria a tissue
Star: You were beaten by those wimps?!
Derek opens his eyes and gulps.
George shakes his head to clear it out and rushes to see if Leeta is all right
Leeta passes out from lack of blood
Mariah: Oh no..not now..um..hello Star..hehe.
Derek: Izzat...Star I hear?
Star laughs even more.
Mariah: Star...why are you here...?
Akira drinks an elixer
Kane crawls to his feet, and looks up through bloodied hair to see a woman laughing maniacally
Akira: Ahhh... Much better
Aleria makes a puddle of tears
Derek pulls himself up to his feet painfully.
Akira: Who is this insane person?
Mariah hurts all over.
Star: Revenge is near, mother....
Mariah: She's Star, she used to be our friend..
Star: I still am. You're just on the wrong side.
Aleria pulls herself together and stands up
Star looks sad.
Derek: So...whose side...you on?
Akira: Who's side are you on?
George: Wrong side??
Derek takes a step forward slowly...
Star: Yours.... as long as that sttttttttupid prince isn't with you.
George looks warily at Star
Aleria: Who are you??
George: What are you talking about?
Akira is very confused
Mariah: You mean....Crono..?
Mariah: Well, he's not..but why do you hate him so much..?
George: What's wrong with Crono?
Kane steps forward deftly, and listens to Star talk...
Star: His father isn't alive, correct?
Mariah hears the patter of feet behind her.
Akira thinks that she could help him
Crono: Hey Guys!
Mariah: Oh shit..shit shit..Crono! Run away!
Derek: Crono...no, wait...
Crono: What the hell happened here?
George: !? Watch out!
Mariah: Crono What?
Mekare: You idiot! Run!
Star turns to Crono, her eyes burning with a strange fever.
Kane: Laid waste to us once again, after we did nothing wrong...
Star: Revenge... Finally.
Akira: Not again...
Star: This is for you, mother.
Derek collapses once again from the pain.
Akira: Star don't!!!
Star throws a spell at Crono.
Crono: Revenge?..Um..heheh..I'm gonna run like hell now, excuse me! Crono barely dodges
Leeta wakes up, her vision blurred
Crono: What the hell?!
Akira hits Star with his claws laced with a paralysis potion
Star: Stand like a man!
George tries to use a magic barrier on Crono
Mariah: No! Akira!!
Aleria: Leave him alone!
Mariah tries to walk up to Star. Stop this...please..Crono..don't ask questions..run..
Star can't move....
Crono: Gotcha.. Crono runs like hell!!
Star: Don't... run....
Mariah: He's gone..thank god.
Mariah: I'm sorry, Star, But he's our friend. We can't let you hurt him!
Derek is unconscious again.
Aleria stands up to face Star
Akira: Now Star why do you want revenge against that man
George: Anyway- what IS all this revenge talk??
Star: Not him. His father.
Mariah wonders if this insanity is a spell or something..
Star: I know the truth.
Mariah: But he's not his dad!
George: What truth?
Mariah: Or whatever!
Star: He's of his bloodline.
Mariah stares O_o...Oh man.
Star: That's enough for me.
Mariah: HE IS?
Mariah: You mean..he's your..brother? What about Marle???
Aleria: Oh, that's real mature. you don't like his father so you're gonna try to kill him.
Keli tries to reach for her book, but is too surprised to move...
Akira: This is interesting
Akira gives Derek an elixer
George thinks this is worse than Melchior's engineering problems
Mariah just stares...
Derek stands up again and joins the rest of the group.
Keli 's mouth hangs open
Mariah: Well, My mom was friends with quite a playboy...
Derek: He say something about Princess Schala?
Keli hesitates and grabs her book
Mariah notices Star's silence.. I hope we didn't kill her!!
Derek: She's still standing.
Mekare: Naw..She's not dead..she's being stubborn!
Aleria: Could someone please explain??
Akira wanders off
Mariah: Akira! Strange guy...
Derek: Better get some answers fast..I don't think the paralysis is going to last much longer.
Mariah: Yeah, talk about her..ok?
Star: I'm a child of violence...
Keli listens to Star's words
Star: Forced on her.
Keli: ... In what way?
Star: I wasn't meant to be born.
Kane watches, applying healing tonic to his wounds.
Mariah whispers to herself "A bastard child."
Derek: You're a descendent of Princess Schala? Derek kneels before a member of the royal family.
Star turns her voice flat. "She was raped."
Mariah: By CRONO? That can't be right!
Star: That's what happened.
Mariah shakes her head sadly..
Star: And now... my dear half-brother must pay. My father can't.
Keli feels bad for Star
George: And... what happened to... Schala?
Mariah: But..he did nothing!
Derek: Your majesty, please do not kill Crono Jr..
Keli: Yes... what happened to her?
Star: She died in childbirth....Majesty?
Mariah: With you..?
Aleria: The plot thickens!
Mariah shakes her head..
Derek: You're Schala's heir, aren't you? You're the ruler of Zeal.
Star: Yes. But I have no right.
Mariah eyes boggle.. He's right..
Keli: After all these years of researching...
Leeta gets a confused look
Keli: ... now I know what happened...
Derek turns to Mariah.
Keli: ...damnint... no one will believe me...
Derek: I'm sorry...but she is the sovereign queen.
George: Believe you?
Mariah: But Zeal is...gone.
Derek: She might be able to get me back to Zeal.
Keli: ....yes George... I've been.... mutters off
George: ... what's left of Zeal....
Mariah: There's nothing left of Zeal though..
George: Keli? Huh?
Star: Zeal no longer exists...
Derek: There isn't? But a portal opened and I fell through... It's...gone?
Mariah: Lavos destroyed it. My mother told me..
Mariah: She barely survived it..
Star: Crono attemped to murder her also, by bringing the power of Lavos down.
Keli: Zeal kingdom's been gone for centuries...
Mariah: NO! That's not true Star!
Mariah: Crono, my mother..Marle..they didn't mean for The Ocean Palace to fall!
Aleria wonders what happened to Victor and Voria.
Keli: They didn't... ...
Mariah nods "They didn't"
Derek: So..I have nothing to go back to? My mother and father...dead?
Mariah: I don't know Derek.
Star: No. He knew that the dagger would overload the machine.
Mariah: Some people did survive..maybe your family did!
Keli pats Derek's back and frowns
Mariah: But he didn't!! How could he?
Leeta stays in the background, listening to all this. Mekare does too
Star: And he died for it! But that cursed Chrono Trigger....
Derek starts to cry. "Why am I even following you anymore? What's the point? I have no home..."
Keli: Yes! The Earthbound villagers and the Enlightened....
Star: Derek... Join me.
Mariah hugs Derek, then turns to Star. No!
George: Do you think, that these people would have destroyed Zeal and bring ruin to all its people willingly?
Mariah: Last thing I'm gonna do is let him join you..
Star: We can be great together. Create a new Zeal!
Mariah: Not while you're all twisted… Derek..please..don't..
George: .... yeah, right. Not the way you think.
Star: You and I can rule it...
Derek: But you...sniff..you're even worse. All you're living for is revenge. At least...at least this way I'll be helping to defeat that fiend Iris.
George: Zeal was destroyed.... but the lesson it left lives
Star: Build a new home. You're family to me.
Keli: True... nods
George: Greed, the hunger for power, ambition, just breed destruction....
Mariah: Derek, your family may be alive. Isn't that worth fighting for..?
Star: We're of the same country.
Keli: Absolute power corrupts absolutly...
Star: Iris deserves to die.
Derek: What country? Our country is gone.: You're queen of nothing!
Mariah: Finally! Something we agree on!
George: No one is responsible for the destruction of Zeal but the evil which is born with the good in the souls of people.... you can do nothing about it.
Mariah: Lavos is responsible, not you
George: The least you can do is honor your people and serve a cause to prevent another disaster from happening.
Star: I have no desire for power. We can build a new home! It'll be great! Star suddenly remembers her code of honor.
Mariah: But..if Zeal lasts..what about the time continuum?
Derek: Yeah. Some people that I know...Derek looks at Mariah. ...might not be born if I did that.
Star: After I destroy Crono.... I have to die too...
Mariah: What? Why?
Keli nods and agrees with Derek
Star: I am a bastard child. I have no right to live.
Derek: Well, Zeal could take over as the new power in the land. Who knows what could happen between 12000 and 1000.
Mariah smiles at Derek.
George: Nobody has to die!
Mariah: Of course you do!
Leeta: Bastard child?
Mariah: So Crono Sr is really a bastard! So? He's dead! Live your life girl!
Keli: Not true... Star...
Aleria: Everything should have a right to live
Derek: Star, you don't have to kill Crono or yourself. Just come back with us and help fight against the real enemy here.
Star: Crono RAPED Schala! I'm the result!
Mariah suddenly loses it
Keli: I can't believe this.... turns away
Mariah: YOU'RE FUCKING LUCKY TO EVEN BE ALIVE!!
George: Life is too precious to give or take... You have no right to take your own or Crono's.
Keli: But everybody has a right to live, Star...
Mariah: I Lost my mother...lost my father..lost everyone! You never had a family, so you couldn't know!
Star: Then... draws her dagger
Star: I shall restore honor to my mother.
George knocks Star's dagger out of her grip Don't!
Star plunges the dagger deep into her chest.
Star falls to the ground...
Kane shakes his head sorrowfully...
Aleria runs over to Star
Mariah: Quick! Take her inside that house!
Aleria tries to heal Star
George takes the dagger out and quickly asks someone for a piece of cloth to make a tourniquet
Keli helps George
Star opens her eyes... "No..."
Mariah: I'm sorry Star.. But I can't leave a friend in pain.
Derek stands paralyzed with fear
Doctor: I'm heere! Watcha want?
Mekare: Help us!
George: Killing yourself is going to do no good to your mother, or Zeal.... get that right!
Doctor: Oh my! We'll take it from here! Comehere boys!
--A group of men put Star on a stretcher and take her away!--
George steps back
Mariah suddenly starts crying. Now what..?
Keli: sniff Star...
Derek: I don't know. I can't handle this.
Aleria: Now we go find Victor and Voria
A Voice is heard How depressing..hehe..
Mariah: Whoa? Who? Mariah looks around
Leeta: Let us find them....
George: ... and Iris.
Leeta: and kill them.
Aleria: Who is that??
Voice: You won't have to look so far for me...
Kane looks around..
George frowns and looks around
George: Show yourself!
Iris comes out of the shadows
Kane: Another human...
George throws a blast of Light magic at Iris!
Iris: Tisk tisk..I never thought that Crono was such a player. Funny how Lucca never mentioned that..
Aleria draws her sword
Mariah: Come here you witch!
George: Not a human, Kane. She's way beyond the evil a human soul can have...!
Iris Giggles I see..well, I'm having a bit of fun with you saps..
Derek fumes at Iris ...What do you mean?
Kane: I am very tired of these people invading our village...
Akira wanders back in
Kane: I shall have to dispose of this woman.
Iris: I want a bit of a challenge...meet me in 65 million BC..or you'll be sorry.... Iris giggles...
Mariah: Like hell we will! It's a trap!
Keli looks at the group...
Aleria has a flashback
George is just about fed up with Iris' giggling and confronts her
Iris Maybe...but don't you want to see your mother...she's there..
Kane: Does anyone care to assist me in destroying her now?
Aleria whispers "Mother"
Mariah: Go for it.
Akira: to Mariah What's going on?
George: Give me a hand, Kane!
Kane scampers over to George, waving talons.
Iris: Not now guys! Later....haaa haa haa!
Mekare: Oh dear...
Akira: What the hell?
George: GET BACK HERE, you scum bag!
Keli: Does this mean....
George glowers and paces around
Kane: She is a coward.
Aleria remembers her mother
Mekare: You better go there..meanwhile, I'll stay behind to clean up medina, for Damian's sake..
George: She still owes me two... and she's dearly gonna pay for them...
Mariah: I see.
Akira: Sorry to leave but I had to do something..
Mariah: It's ok Akria.
Mekare nods, and splits Later guys!!
George: Agreed, Kane.... - who are you?
Akira: What happened while I was gone?
George had forgotten all about Kane
Mariah: Tons Akira..tons..
Derek looks at Kane.
Kane: I am a mystic, obviously...Kane folds his wings on his back.
George: Yeah, but besides that? George points to himelf.I am a human, obviously
Kane: I am a creation of Magus. I fled his army long ago...
Akira: I've got a very bad feeling about this....
Mariah: I know Akira, we have to go to 65million BC....dammit..
