*In Falconreach, you are running toward the Guardian Tower, where Big Daddy is waiting.*
<Character>: I got your message, Big Daddy.
<Character>: What's happening here?
*You look up to see a giant purple Sea Monster with barnacles and coral on its back, with one hand on the Falconreach Guardian Tower.*
Sea Monster (1): Gyaooooooooooooooo!
<Character>: And where did that monster come from?!
Big Daddy: What's happening here is what happens wherever Big Daddy goes.
Big Daddy: Love!
Big Daddy: A few days ago, this thing arose from the depths of the sea.
<Character>: So you need me to beat it up so that all of the Guardians can find love?
Big Daddy: No!
Big Daddy: This poor monster is in trouble.
<Character>: I think the Guardians might disagree.
Big Daddy: Love trouble.
Big Daddy: It's an ancient and beautiful creature that's just gone a bit blind in its old age.
Big Daddy: Ever since it emerged, it's been trying to get the attention of the Guardian Tower!
Big Daddy: But, tragedy of tragedies, it's received no response.
*You blink several times, confused by Big Daddy's retelling of this obvious eventuality.*
<Character>: Well, that's because it's a tower...
Big Daddy: Doesn't make it any less rude!
<Character>: So what am I here for, if I'm not driving the monster away?
Big Daddy: Oh, you just need to keep it occupied, baby.
Big Daddy: That's right!
Big Daddy: If it breaks the Guardian Toweró
<Character>: Then the Guardians would have to rebuild it... again?
Big Daddy: No!
Big Daddy: The monster would be heartbroken!
<Character>: Of course...
Big Daddy: While you keep the monster occupied, I'm gonna find another one and lure it over!
<Character>: I have so many questions about this.
*The ground shakes as the Sea Monster takes hold of the Falconreach Guardian Tower with both hands and a thud.*
Sea Monster (1): Gyaooooo!
Sea Monster (1): Gyoooo!
Big Daddy: No time for questions!
<Character>: Wait... how long do I have to keep its attention for?
*Big Daddy grows a pair of wings.*
Big Daddy: As long as it takes!
*Big Daddy flies off, leaving you alone to stall the Sea Monster.*
<Character>: Well, here goes nothing!
Battle! - begins battle with Sea Monster.
Heal - fully replenishes HP, MP, and potions.
Run Away! - returns to Hero's Heart Day Storybook.
*After stalling the Sea Monster, you attempt to reason with it.*
<Character>: Listen! It's... it's just not that into you!
Sea Monster (1): Gyaoooooo!
<Character>: I know, it hurts, but there are plenty of uh, sea monsters in the sea!
Sea Monster (1): Gyaaaooooooo!
<Character>: Okay, honestly, I have no idea what you're saying.
Sea Monster (1): Gyaaaaaooooo.
Big Daddy: LOVE INCOMING, BABY!!!
*Big Daddy is flying toward the Falconreach Guardian Tower, with a green Sea Monster with a pink bow on its head angrily chasing him; the green Sea Monster crashes into the purple Sea Monster, nudging the Falconreach Guardian Tower.*
Big Daddy: Oops!
Sea Monster (1): Grrryoooou!
Sea Monster (2): Gyaaaau?
*The purple Sea Monster's eye widens, before becoming a heart; the two Sea Monsters hold hands.*
Sea Monster (1): Gyaoooo! Gyaooooo! Gyaoooooooooooooooooooooo!
Sea Monster (2): Gyaaaaaooo!
Big Daddy: Aww, that's so sweet!
<Character>: What? You understood that?!
Big Daddy: The language of love is universal, baby!
Big Daddy: Let me scribble down a translation for you.
At first a scent, across the waves,
And a turn, my weary eyes behold.
The epitome of beauty
From your head cresting clouds to
Where your coral meets the sea.
Your strands of sea kelp strewn
Across your shining scales.
Long have I wandered, but my journey is ended
With this fateful encounter with you.
<Character>: Huh. It's rather eloquent for a monster!
<Character>: By the way, how did you manage to find another very specific species of ancient deep sea monster so quickly?
Big Daddy: That's the power of Love, baby!
Big Daddy: The one and only Love helped me! They are great at finding soulmates!
*The green Sea Monster waves goodbye at you and Big Daddy with one hand, while still holding the purple Sea Monster's hand with the other.*
Big Daddy: Looks like everything's wrapped up here.
<Character>: I've got to hand it to you, that was impressive, Big Daddy.
Big Daddy: Just another job well done in the name of Love!
*A wall of hearts briefly fills the screen.*
DC Loot - opens TMatT Loot for DCs shop.
