Black Belt's (Lack Of A) Sense of Direction Leads to More Trouble

Cast Appearing[]

Meanwhile, deep in some forest somewhere...
Black Belt So... are we there yet?
White Mage If we were, you certainly wouldn't know, would you?
Black Belt You're not still mad, are you?
White Mage Mad? Why would I be mad?
White Mage All we had to do was wake up in Elfland and then follow the Light Warriors out.

Black Belt Man, where's the fuggin' bathroom in this elven labyrinth?

Black Belt All they know is that there is a king. They don't know or particularly care who it is.
Black Belt More to the point, they don't need to know.
Black Belt The idea of a King is good for their economy and that's what counts. That, and we got away with our lives.
White Mage True...
