*Fades into view as you and Verlyrus are confronted by Myx who is in the form of a spirit within Apsaydaaun. He is clearly not pleased that you are here.*
Myx: You shouldn't be here, <Character>! It's... very dangerous for you to be here!!!
<Character>: I don't care, Myx, I came here to help the sisters!
Myx: Help them... ?
Myx: Are they in trouble?
<Character>: You tell me! Croft didn't appear this year, so Bubble sent me here to figure out why.
Myx: Oh, is it Mogtober already? I didn't realize.
<Character>: Well, first thing first...
<Character>: Verlyrus, why are you here too?! Did the ritual affect you as well?
Verlyrus: Miao mjau, meow miau mew!
<Character>: I didn't think this through...
Verlyrus: Mew mew miao!!!
<Character>: Forget I asked, Verlyrus. I... I still can't understand you.
Myx: He's a cat! Cats can cross the barrier between worlds, duh!
<Character>: Right, of course, how could I have not known this apparently obvious fact...
<Character>: Very well.
<Character>: Myx, Croft didn't appear, as I have said. Someone is keeping it here. Do you know why?
<Character>: And... where are the sisters?
Myx: They are here. Safe and sound, as far as I know.
<Character>: So what, they forgot it was Mogloween?!
Myx: Well, time does flow differently here... but no, I don't think so. It would be silly of them to forget. The sisters are just gr-
Myx: Oh, I understand now!
Myx: They must be keeping Croft from materializing!
<Character>: Oh no, not you too...
<Character>: Who. Are. "THEY"!?
Myx: Abraca and Dabra.
<Character>: THANK YOU! By the Avatars, finally! I was getting sick of this charade!
<Character>: Finally the answer I was looking for.
<Character>: So, Abraca and Dabra, who are they?
Myx: Masters of this part of Apsaydaaun. Of Croft, to be precise. This entire region is under their protection.
Myx: That's why they can make it materialize on Lore... or not. It's tradition, or something.
<Character>: But why didn't it appear this time? What has changed?
*Myx raises in eyebrows up in worry and his expression turns to fright.*
Myx: You... are not going to be happy if I tell you, sooooo...
Myx: I'll just let the sisters explain it.
<Character>: Where are they?
Myx: Trouble is somewhere around here, I think she's tending to a candemon.
Myx: But I don't know where Bubble and Toil are.
Myx: Most likely with Abraca and Dabra... I suppose.
<Character>: Alright, I'm on my way then.
Myx: No, wait!
*Before you turn to leave, you stop for a brief moment and look at Myx with curiosity about what he has to say next.*
Myx: Remember, I've said it was dangerous for you to be here. There is a reason for that...
Myx: Sometimes, humans get here. Either via being taken by the masters of this domain, or just somehow wandering in here. How, I don't know.
Myx: You must understand... you humans are, for the beings in Apsaydaaun, like candy.
<Character>: Excuse me?
Myx: You eat candy in your domain, candy eats you in this domain. Simple enough?
<Character>: Well... I'm not sweet, so I'll be fine!
<Character>: Yes Verly?
Verlyrus: Mjao miau nya, meow!
<Character>: I understood exactly none of this, do you want to accompany me on this journey?
Verlyrus: Meow, mew miau!!!
<Character>: Perfect, let's go!
*Loads Verlyrus as Friend B as you navigate around Croft in Apsaydaaun's strange landscape.*
*As you venture deeper into the corn fields, Trouble, taking a monstrous form, decorates some type of candy creature with candy corn. What you see fascinates you.*
*Trouble notices your presence, leading her to instantly becomes shocked as well as Myx is.*
Trouble: ... <Character>!?
*The creature Trouble was tending to begins to shake violently.*
Trouble: Oh no!
<Character>: Don't worry, I will be fine!
Trouble: I wasn't talking to you!
*The creature manifests into a grotesque, deranged candy killing machine that is out to get you. It turns out to be the Candemon that Myx was talking about earlier.*
*You swiftly battle the newly animated candemon, knowing that you're not going to fall prey without a fight. You and Verlyrus emerge victorious while Trouble examines the now inaminate candemon, feeling troubled.*
Trouble: *sigh* I just finished patching him up...
<Character>: I'm... sorry?
Trouble: *sigh* It's fine. He couldn't help himself...
<Character>: You look... different.
Trouble: We take more appropriate forms whilst on Lore, here we can be ourselves.
Trouble: But, more importantly...
Trouble: WHY ARE YOU HERE!?
<Character>: *deep sigh*
*Trouble remains silent briefly before she finally explained what the reason for Croft's delay is.*
Trouble: I'm afraid we are not allowed to attend Mogloween this year...
<Character>: Why not? Everything was fixed!
Trouble: I KNOW, RIGHT?! But they didn't even want to listen!!!
<Character>: Abraca and Dabra?
Trouble: Oh, so you know...
Myx: I told him/her.
Trouble: Maybe if YOU were to explain the situation, we'd be free to leave!
<Character>: Well, I am charming and charismatic, if I do say so myself!
Trouble: We should go to the Pumpkin Cake Mountains, then!
Trouble: We can get Bubble on our way there, she's in the Foulest.
<Character>: ... Forest?
Myx: What? These boods are scary!
Trouble: Let's go!
