Cave Story 21: Operation Saving-Balrog"Balrog! Balrog?" Curly stared, wide eyed, at the motionless grey soap bar. She banged on the iron bars, her mind clouded with so much desperation she could not think straight.Quote felt himself getting colder for some reason, and he took out the Spur and prepared to charge up to shoot at the cage. The strange thing is, he seemed to be aiming straight at Balrog."WAIT!" Curly pushed the gun down. Quote stared at her. "you're aiming the wrong way!"Curly then thought she heard a bit of thumping coming from one of the cupboards, but she dismissed it as one of her malfunctioning hearing sensors.Quote ignored her warnings, and charged up his spur, before he released the trigger at his friend..."QUOTE!!" Curly screamed, and the lazer broke the iron bars, and straight at the unconscious Balrog. Curly watched in horror as the lazer shot Balrog, and he exploded into pieces.Curly felt her head getting more heated up, as she glared at Quote. "YOU... YOU TRAITOR!" she wanted to pick her machi
Cave Story 25: back?"Curly... Curly, wake up!"Balrog's voice echoed as he shook the android. Curly lazily stretched herself and woke up.What came to view was not the corridor of the 3rd flooor, but instead it was the view of the sunny meadows way back where they landed on the island."What... is this...?" she could not believe her eyes, as she scanned around the ripe green grass and the clear blue sky."We built a good place over here!" Balrog exclaimed. Curly realised his wounds were gona; he was clean and good as new."I thought we were in... We were captured by humans..." Curly stuttered. "Quote... Where's Quote!?""Humans? Are you kidding me?" laughed Balrog. "You were sleeping here all along!"Curly blinked with confusion, as Balrog continued, "Quote's just picking flowers. I have no idea why though."Just then, Curly noticed Quote carrying a large bundle of flowers as he trudged back."Hey, Quote!" Balrog waved. Curly was still startled, unable to accept the fact that she was back in the meadows.
Cave Story 26: alarmingAlarms sounded, and the whole building was filled with emerancy sirens.Annabelle knitted her eyebrows. She was worried about the androids she had saved. Did they rescue the creature they call Balrog? Or did they get captured?Annabelle bit her lip, and took off her glasses. Her makeup had begun to run off, with all the sweat dripping from her forehead. If they get captured, then they'll investigate the headphone devices that were kept with them... And she'll be in suspicion!She grabbed the walkie talkie from the table and put on the headphones. She has heard nothing from them at all, and she wanted to make sure they were alright."Quote! Curly! Do you read me?" Annabelle pressed a button, yelled into the walkie talkie, hoping someone would answer.Curly desperately shot more memory-erasing bullets onto the heads of her opponents, and signalled for Balrog to head straight towards the end of the corridor.Just then, there was a loud vibration in Curly's headphones. Curly heard each wor
Cave Story 23: Surprised"What in the blazes...?" Mark stared at the two androids, and his freed experiment. He recognised the them as the two security guards as before."You two little...!" Mark screamed. "Both of you are gonna pay for this!"Curly was at a loss of what to do, as she stared at Mark. She considered shooting him, but she did not want to kill anymore; it would make her no better than the killer robots.Quote glanced at Mark, and looked at Curly. He then took out the Spur and shot at the armless doctor.Mark quickly dodged out of the way, but the spur got his leg, and he winced in pain."What are you doing, Quote!?" Curly yelled. Quote, as usual, did not reply, and raised his gun again.Fortunately, Mark managed to drag his way under his desk, and rummaged through his drawers for an emergancy weapon.Curly grabbed the Spur, and yanked it out of his hand. "Don't do it!"Quote glared at her, and tried to snatch it back, but Curly hid it away from him.All of a sudden, Quote noticed a green glow fro
Cave Story 19: on the wayJonah clasped his baton tightly as he strolled around the hallway, pulling his sleeves uncomfortably from his blue uniform. He was a tad tired, but he knew that it would be hours before the next person takes over him. The same questions had played in his head like a player on repeat; for god's sake, why the hell would a doctor need a hell lot of bodyguards at the entrance of his office?Jonah sighed; it's not as if anyone... or anything would want to hurt people like that. There were laws and rules that restricted those activities; and everyone had already known that.He then refused to exhaust his brain to think any further; answers would only fill his hunger from curiosity, it won't bring food on his plate."Excuse me!" a female, slightly mechanical voice rang in his ears, and in an instant, two security guards swerved past him. He rubbed his eyes and looked again; they had both white skin... no, not Canadian skin, but skin literally as white as snow.In an instinct, he yelled
Cave Story 16: MemoryThe mechanics stood, wide eyed, at Quote; and Annabelle glanced at Miss Nellie."No," Curly gasped, and knocked his forehead several times. "Am-Am I hearing it wrongly...?Quote looked at Curly, his blue eyes clearly glowing at her."Quote, don't be silly," Curly tried hard to laugh, but nothing, except for little sobs, could come out.Quote did not reply."I'm serious, Quote!" Curly shook him hard, making the robot a little dizzy. "You don't recognise me?"Quote looked at the two mechanics; their faces seemed to be pale as cold perspiration trickled down their cheeks.With that, he spoke again. "Who am I?"Curly gaped. There was silence for a moment, before she spoke, "Do you... remember the time when we first met at the Sand Zone? I was taking care of the Colons..."Annabelle and Miss Nellie scratched their heads; they had no idea what she was talking about."Then you met me at the Labyrinth, and we're captured by the witch? Remember the time you saved me from drowning? The time when
(FINAL) Cave Story 30: non-finale flightSirens were heard, cars and people gathered around, looking up as the mechanical Balrog smashed into the 8th floor of the building.Curly witnessed the spectacle as Balrog flew high in the sky, and into the thick clouds. She grinned, and patted Balrog. "Good job!""no problem, Curly! We're back in the sky!" Balrog smiled back. He then swung around in the sky while crying his signature greeting, "Huzzah!" before he felt a slight pinch on his face from his wounds. "Oh man, gotta be careful with that."Curly looked at her partner, looking around in the sky, and gave him a big hug. "Thanks for saving us!"Quote was surprised, and he wriggled away a little. She was too close for comfort; yet why is there a feeling within him that knows that he could trust her fully?"So how did you know that the cloned Balrog needs to be slammed?" Curly wondered about how the real Balrog wouldn't get hurt from hopping his own body all around.Quote thought about it for a while, but shook his head. He was to
