“Here goes The—”
“—a decoy, Fool. WHO COMES NEAR?” the King-of-All-Things asks.
“HEEE HAAA!” the Captain yells as Labaguette swoops past the King-of-all-Things, screaming: “A BABORD! A BABORD!” The Insatiable Princess had landed in the shadow, behind the King-of-all-Things kingdom and is now floating on the platform with reluctance, willing to take flight at the wink from her Commander.
“Utter madness!” the King-of-all-Things mutters, “they’ve lost it. I must rid—”
“—They’re back!” the Fool exclaims, “can’t you see? They’re back. They will free me.”
“Not so fast, Fool, not so fast.”
Atop a mast of the Insatiable Princess, a majestic man bird stands proudly, his elegant tail spreading its glistening feather, his goggles shining bright. He holds an egg. He holds a flag.
“Give me the flag and show some respect, Bird-Man!”
“The Syck Monkey’s children are just that: children. They’re ready to throw some more.”
“You want the Fool back? Give me the Flag.”
“It’s the Egg or the flag?”
“You give me the Flag and I give you the Egg. Do you understand?”
This is when Birdseye switches his goggles on full blare and an Egg of a thousand lights brighten this universe’s entire surroundings.
“I own The One. It is contained in a restricted area. Can’t be touched nor retrieved. It’s protected by destructive and demonised death beams. I won’t be tricked.”
“This is The One. T’wasn’t that hard for them Monkeys to grab it before we landed and the monkeys you’re looking at are not cadavers. They look rather bright and sparkly, don’t you think?”
