Fake Ace meets the Darkarete ScrapsEdit
(By this point, Ace is released from jail. Fake Ace is planning a large-scale robbery on the largest bank in New Dronia City. He goes to the Darkarete Scraps for help. At this point, the Scraps are in a holdout on the coast southeast of New Dronia City. Cold is playing chess with Lilpu, while Falens is watching the horizon and Bootan is doing god-knows-what in the shelter.)
Cold: Oh, you think you're so good at this game, aren't you? Well, check THIS move out!
(does a really terrible move)
Lilpu: Checkmate. This is the thirty-third time you have lost to me.
Cold: Can we stop playing this shit game? By the time you lose, my fingers will have rotted to stumps, aye!
Lilpu: Very well.
Cold: Also, promise me that you'll shove the queens up your ass when we have another game. Maybe I could win it, huh?
Lilpu: I make no promises.
Cold: What is it now?
Falens: Ace! He's coming towards our outpost!
(Cold, surprised by this, kicks over the chess table.)
Cold: I'll be right back.
- September to October 7,025: The man who looks like Ace is revealed to have been a clone created by the Vainetes. Dronian is pretty much one step away from declaring full-on war at the Vainetes.
