Find Edward

Rita! My poor darling Edward, he left without telling me. We need to catch up with him before he finds his Dad. It would break my heart if Edward finds out what shape Thomas is in, not to mention how it would affect Thomas. I don’t even dare think about it. Sob sob.

You’re saying that we might catch up with Edward on Summerblaze, Rita? Before he reaches the bunker?

Okay, there’s no time to lose! Let’s ride to the bunker at Shipwreck Shore.

Sit tight, Edward! Mom is on her way!

Objectives: Edward is on his way to the bunker at Shipwreck Shore to see his dad. Stop him!

Go into the bunker and find Edward facing his dad in the back of the bunk room.

Show your face, you coward! I know you’re there, I can hear you!

No Happy Reunion

…But Edward, you must understand that I never intended to leave you. I can’t do anything about this. Oh dear…

Oh! The poison gets even worse when I’m stressed out…

It doesn’t matter what happened. You must be with us Dad!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Stop it, Edward. I want nothing but to be with you but I just can’t. I can’t be around normal people with this poison inside me.

Oh, I’m so sorry my darlings, but I can’t be close to you. I must leave!

Farewell, my wonderful family.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Noooo! Dad, don’t go! Arrrgh!

I don’t understand! What poison?!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

I’ll tell you.

A Broken Family

I’m afraid you’re right, Rita. Sob sob. We can’t help Thomas so we might as well leave. I don’t want Edward to be around Thomas when he’s like this.

Do as I say, Edward! Go outside now! I will tell you more once you are outside.

Objectives: Leave the bunker with Lisa and Edward.

Reprimanded

Mom, why didn’t you tell me Dad is sick and living in a bunker? Of course I’d go looking for him, and if only you had told me earlier I would have been able to start by now!

How could you treat me like this, Mom? I’m not a child any more, so stop treating me like one!

Objectives: Find the alchemist somewhere near Crescent Moon Village.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Edward…

Erm… I know you’re not a child anymore but your Dad is so ill and I didn’t know how he would react when he saw you. Since he was poisoned, he has been unable to control his feelings and he could have hurt you!

I can’t bear the thought of your getting hurt or injured in any way. Please forgive me, Edward.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

But Dad is sick and he needs my help! You don’t need to worry about ME! The only person we should be worrying about is Dad. You don’t need to protect me any more, Mom! Stop treating me like a little kid, I’m going to help find a cure for him.

Isn’t there anything we can do to help Dad?

You think that Jorvik Root would cure him, Rita? Why can’t we just give him some of that then? What? The poison prevents him from wanting to try and cure himself?

So there’s nothing we can do?

You think you can handle it, Rita? By tricking him into taking the antidote? But how?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Yeah, how do we trick Thomas, Rita?

What’s that, Rita? If we could mix the Jorvik Root in with his food or something without him noticing it, then he’d be cured.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

What did you say we should do, Rita? Use a lip balm with Jorvik Root in it? Really?

So you’re saying Dad comes to our house every night and that Mom always kisses him goodbye when he leaves? So, the Jorvik Root will get into his system through the lip balm when Mom kisses him. I see. Great idea, Rita!

But how do we get hold of this lip balm?

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

I think I know how!

Apparently a very skilled alchemist lives somewhere near Crescent Moon Village. He should be able to help us make the lip balm. I don’t know where he lives exactly, but apparently his house is really special so it shouldn’t be too hard to find.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

We’re going to cure Dad! Hooray!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Oh Rita, you’re a genius! A lip balm with Jorvik Root… I would never have thought of that.

You’re saying you can ride to the alchemist straight away to get the lip balm, Rita? Great! in the meantime, Edward and I will ride on home. Here’s the Jorvik Root for the lip balm.

Look for the alchemist in and around Crescent Moon Village. Hurry up, Rita! The fate of my family is in your hands.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

And who might you be? Hee hee.

Alchemist, You Bet!

Ahoy there, Rita! Frederik’s the name. Nice to meet you! It’s actually nice when anyone stops by for a chat, anyone at all. Ha ha!

Frederik Gets His Head Around the Problem

So you’re wondering if I’m a good alchemist?

Not just good, absolutely brilliant, if you ask me! Hee hee! Why are you asking?

Can I make a lip balm? Of course! That’s easy! But what do you need it for?

You say you need my help? Nobody every asks me for help in this village. Hmm. Everybody just takes me for granted. Sob sob.

Cough Cough.

You say you need my help! In that case, Alchemist Frederik is at your service! I’m going to make the best lip balm you’ve ever seen. I will flavor it with the sweetest berries imaginable. How about strawberry or cherry? We could also make the balm from the fragrant, pretty wild flowers that grow in the fields around here. Leave it to me! No problem! This is going to work out just fine! Ha ha. 

You say you need a lip balm made with Jorvik Root?

Have you ever tasted Jorvik Root? It tastes worse than old sweaty socks. Yuck!

Erm. Hmm. Excuse me for asking but what do you need the lip balm for?

Objectives: Talk to Frederik in Crescent Moon Village.

Rewards: 10 Jorvik Shillings, 5 XP

Reputation: 10 with Crescent Moon Village

Tell Frederik all about what has happened to Thomas Rockwell and why you need the Jorvik Root.

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Oh no! Oh no! Oh no!

Is the poison here in Epona?

Oh dear! That’s not good, not good at all!

Oh my! I warned them that this would happen! But nobody would listen, OF COURSE! And now it’s happening here in our little country village!

Do you want to know what I know about all this? Well, for a long time I’ve tried to make people here aware of how badly polluted the witch Pi’s swamp is. If only they had listened, this might never have happened.

The locals call this thing Thomas has “the Curse of the Swamp.” Soon after the poison enters the blood stream, the victim goes mad. Little by little he or she will lose themselves and all positive thoughts. The poison is like a parasite that invades and transforms the person’s personality into something horrible. In the end, the infected person will think that their new negative and destructive behavior is normal. But worst of all, they will become virus carriers themselves, if they aren’t cured in time. And since they also become very aggressive and unpredictable, they will pass this evil curse on to others. The whole village is in danger!

Don’t tell me you’ve been poisoned too! Did he scratch or bite you?

Phew! You’re lucky you didn’t get infected!

It’s a good thing you came here, Rita. There is still time to change Thomas Rockwell’s tragic fate!

-.-.-.-.-.-.-

Excuse me but I just want to say…. Woohoo!! Fiiiiiinally a real mission!

I haven’t had the chance to do anything this exciting and important in a looong time. On second thoughts, I don’t think I’ve ever done anything like this before. Ha ha.

Sorry, but this is soooo exciting. Hee hee.

Hmm. I have almost all the ingredients I need. But… Erm… You wouldn’t happen to have a strand of Thomas’ hair by any chance?

No? I thought not… You need to get a strand of Thomas’ hair, because without it, we will never be able to make the lip balm. 

You’re saying you can go to the bunker and get a strand of his hair?

It sounds really scary. Would you honestly go?

You’re a brave one. Good luck and be careful.

I got it! We have to make him stay still long enough so that Mom can kiss him. The best place to do that must be inside. In our house! Me and Rita can hide in there and stop him from getting away if he refuses to kiss Mom. We need to be quick but it should be easier indoors than outdoors.

You think we should start preparing the surprise straight away, Rita?

I agree! Come on, let’s go inside and get ready. Finally my family is going to be complete again!

Isabel, I’m so sorry for everything I put you through. Please let me explain why I acted like I did.

My poor darlings! Of course I understand why you did what you did. I just wish you had told me that you needed the Jorvik Root. Then I would obviously just have given it to you. But no harm done, my horse Atlas and I are fine, so of course I forgive you. But next time, please just ask.
