Knight Errant Part 7Knight Errant
*There's a knock on the door.*
*Meta Knight goes over to open the door.*
Meta Knight: Who is it? Blade and Sword, I presume?
Blade: Yes, it's us.
Meta Knight: Who else is with you?
Seren: Me, Seren. You know me, I'm Tiff's husband.
*Sword gives him a light push and Seren hesitantly enters. Blade follows them in.*
Meta Knight: I believed I asked for Tiff to come.
Seren twitched a little. He felt openly uncomfortable around the three knights; he did not know them very well, and it was clear that he shouldn't have been the one to be there. He recalled the rather awkward conversation between him and Meta Knight's former squires earlier that day when they had expected to find Tiff.
Seren: She couldn't come; she had to go to the hospital-
Sword: Is the baby due?
Meta Knight: *to both of them* Do not change the subject; we have important matters to discuss regarding Kirby. That is why I wanted Tiff here.
Seren: What happened?
Seren didn't know Kirby much better than he kn

Sir Arthur: So are you enjoying your stay so far, Kirby?
Kirby: You bet, sir! Being a full-fledged Star Warrior is a lot of fun so far! I can't wait for my first real mission! Oh, can I be in the same brigade as Marx?
Sir Arthur: Calm down Kirby, you're getting ahead of yourself. I think it would be fine for you to be in the same brigade as Marx. You two seem to work together well. I had my doubts about Marx when he first joined us, but he's proven himself many times over as a loyal Star Warrior.
Kirby: Yay! Thankies!
Sir Arthur: Because Sir Meta Knight has retired-and therefore is no longer your mentor-I have been making preparations for you to have a new mentor. You're still a squire, you realize. You have a number of things you still need to learn before you're ready to be knighted.
Kirby: Aww. When will I get knighted?
Sir Arthur: Whenever your new mentor seems fit.
Kirby: When will I get to meet my new mentor?
Sir Arthur: Soon, hopefully. He was already suppos

Marx: I hate waking up at this time.
The communicator he carried had its alarm set to midnight. It was a silent alarm; only the holder would be woken, which was just what he needed. Summoning up all of his energy, he slowly climbed out of bed and made his way over to the kitchen.
*Marx sets his communicator down on the counter and starts looking through the cupboards*
Marx: Let's see; we have flour, sugar, eggs, baking soda, butter and salt. Luckily I had this room stocked with all the ingredients I need to make cookies. Oh, I almost forgot!
*Marx snickers and pulls out a vial*
Marx: A smidgen of Vipader venom. If five drops can fell the strongest Star Warrior, I can only imagine what a whole pint would do!
*He pours the entire vial into the cookie batter*
Voice from the Communicator: Marx!
*He drops the vial, it hits the floor and shatters. Marx hastily runs over to his communicator, both annoyed and startled by the interruption.*
Marx: What were you th

Kirby: I'm hungry.
The young Star Warrior had just woke up. His shipmates were awake as well, unsurprisingly. Sleeping on a crammed star ship was certainly not comfortable, and Kirby aside, morale was low. The lack of food didn't help, either.
Spark: You're hungry?! What about us?
Spitfire: Don't even talk about hunger after wolfing down our supplies!
Kirby: But I am!
Marx: Well, you'll have to get used to it. Often we run out of supplies on the way back.
Kirby: Then why not pack more?
Spitfire: I'm not sure. We don't pack our own star ships. I think there's not enough space.
Kirby: Is the food good at the base?
Spark: Can we not talk about food? I'm hungry enough as it is, and you guys aren't helping.
Kirby: I know! Let's play a game!
Spark: That's a good idea; it'll take our minds off our stomachs.
Kirby: We'll go around in a circle. You have to point out a constellation or group of stars and say what you think it looks like! I'll start!
*Kirby points out the win
