Everyone: *steps through the rift*
Drake: |:< *as they disappear*
Junior: *grins at his Dad* : D
Drake: What are you smiling about? Both of you have LAPS!
Junior: Can you really open holes in time and space? *to Ben*
Ben: I… uh… I guess that’s what a Rift is. *rubs his head* I never really thought of it as something unusual.
Junior: Super awesome!
Drake: grabs Junior* I don’t want you getting mixed up with that riffraff!
Junior: Awww Daaaaad! *waves at Ben* Come back and visit soon!
Ben: I will. I have someone I want you to meet.
Drake: |:D He’ll be just fine.
KY: I’ll be back to check on you. *looks out to the rift that Ben is making inside the barn* We just have rift-ways to fix…
Ben: The Borderlands still have a lot of chaos energies, but we should be able to clear that out.
Junior: *stands with Drake, Zemi and the rest of the group outside of Drake’s barn*
Drake: Don’t you think that you can make this a permanent thing! *points at Ben* My barn has better uses than hiding your rifts!
KY: *to Zemi* Dad, you sure you’re going to be okay?
Zemi: I’ll be fine. Don’t worry about me!
Junior: Maybe you can meet Cecil!
Ben: Cecil? I uh… *looks nervous* I’m not sure he’d want to meet me.
Junior: He loves training handwavers! Since it’s late, you can stay over if you want. *gives Ben a big T-shirt to use as a nightshirt* This might fit you! It was Job’s!
Drake: *sighs, sitting outside, watching the shadows from the distance*
Drake: *turns and looks at Ben, a sad, broken old man*
Ben: *doesn’t know what to do… has never seen Drake act like this before*
Drake: *sighs* Watch over the boy, will you?
Ben: I… I’ll… try?
Drake: *drags out the room, feeling like the worst-father-of-the-year*
Junior: Maybe I might have been ready if you weren’t spending all your time obsessing on drills, and where the next dragon hunt would take you! *wipes his eyes*
Drake: *reaches to comfort Junior* I can help you. Sometimes growing into your power as a hunter can be diffic-
Junior: I just want you to go away. I can handle this all on my own. *shrugs away from Drake’s hand*
Drake: *gives a sad, but hard look at the floor*
Junior: Did Job know?
Drake: I told him when he was younger than you are now.
Junior: *watery eyes* Well, why didn’t you tell me?
Drake: I never thought it to be important. You weren’t following a warrior’s way. *gives somewhat of a fearful-father face, looking away, while searching for reasons* You were always a little less mature than Job…
Junior: Less… mature?
Drake: Yes. Your mother also knows.
Junior: So everyone in this family knows but me?
Drake: Boy, you weren’t ready…
Ben: What? No! Humans and Lunars aren’t that different at all!
Drake: *grunts at Ben* We have differing views.
Junior: *unsure look, afraid*
Drake: Child. The greatest heroes in the land… King Cecil… your brother, Job… they carry Lunar blood.
