*we trot into the store. The merchant looks at us suspiciously* Me: Hello sir, we are looking for crystals that can contain light. We were told to seek some from you if that's alright? *The shopkeeper eyes me for a long time* SK: Why would a zebra need crystals? Trying to blind somepony so you can hypnotize them and make them into stew no doubt! *I look at him with a shocked expression*
The thing is, is that I completely forgot that even in here, I'm still corrupted by the darkness of Dark Gaia, so if I were to have held it, I would have burnt up, so to speak. No amount of dark energy can touch it; anything that would will instantly be purified by the light. I can still use it outside here though, I just can't touch it. *looks at wrist watch, then back to the path we came from* I've about 23 minutes left before I'm done for. We've got to head ba-*we then feel a rumble* Oh, of freaking course!!! There just HAD to be a catch, hadn't there!?
*smiles* Oh, they were a bunch of party poopers anyway Silly. This calls for...a PARTY!! *a collective groan from the exhausted ponies. A few of them collapse and fall asleep right on the floor* *I look at you and grin* You know what this means? *smiles wide* SLUMBER PARTY!! *giggles and falls back into a beanbag chair*
*steps on the next tile with the odd-one-out-figure on it, and vice versa until we reach the Crystal of Light* Finally. We've made it. *I go to grab the crystal, but just as I touch it, my hand burns* Ow!!
There! *I point to a tile with a bulky figure on it* That looks like a Dark Gaia Titan, while the other figures look like figures of light sources. *I step on the Titan figured-tile; nothing happens* Good. 14 rows left to go.
*they look at each other* G2: I'm afraid we can't give out information on her whereabouts... G1: Yeah, but if it's crystals you're looking for, they sell a variety of them in the local shops. Maybe one of the merchants can sell you a few or something?
