Carl and Lenny get what's coming to them. Black Mage mentally scars the same child again.
|Carl||Are you sure you're not the Black Mage we're looking for?|
|Black Mage||Is this the face of a liar?|
|Lenny||It's kinda hard to tell, what with that cheesy disguise and all.|
|Black Mage||It's time to end this...
Well, let's discuss it in theat secluded alley.
|Carl||I don't see why not.|
|The guards walk down the secluded alley as Black Mage draws out his dagger.|
|Black Mage||Good. It'd just take longer if you resisted. This is for the best.|
|Black Mage stabbs the guards with the dagger. Blood splats everywhere.|
|Black Mage||The problem with guards is that they are too inquisitive for their own good.
That and the clean up afterwards is always such a bitch.
|Cut to Rex walking in Black Mage's general direction.|
|Onion Kid||Man, I hope I don't bump into that crazy mage again today. But Corneria's a pretty big town and I'm nearly home so I should be fine.|
|Rex sees Black Mage who has blood stains on his clothes|
|Black Mage||I wouldn't go back there if I were you, kid. It ain't pretty. Unless you're particularly morbid... like me.|
|Rex carries on anyway and finds Carl and Lenny and the alleyway soaked in blood. The word 'HELP' is written in blood on the wall.|
|Black Mage||(offscreen) Don't say I didn't warn ya, sport.|
|Onion Kid||This has not been a good day for me.|
