Quest: Last Notch Residency:
( You don't manage to beat Huepoe... )
You think about how much you want to win this, how much is riding on it. You hold the rock in your hand firmly, trying to ignore the shaking. You can feel Huepoe watching you carefully, judging your every move. Knowing that everyone is waiting, you go ahead and just take the shot already. You're too scared to even look where it went, and the crowd makes an audible moan to express their disapproval. Oh no… how bad is it? You peek over to see. The rock missed the latter completely! Oh no-- you've lost it for sure now! All Huepoe has to do is get it in literally any rung and he wins. As you look over, he looks you over, a disappointed dad look on his face. You feel crushed.
King Huepoe: That's a darn shame, that is. But don't worry kid!
Without any stretching what-so-ever, he swings the rock over your shoulder without a care in the world, putting an arm around you soon after.
King Huepoe: I like your grit! Ya just can't let the spotlight jitters get to ya! So I tell you what. (He pats your chest playfully) You come over this month and give Elvis the shiniest toes you can imagine, and I will give you that residency chip myself. Count on it. (He winks)
You're shocked. You lost and yet… he's still letting you in?? You sure hope this ori isn't too hard to work with but… you're in! You've done it! You're so relieved you feel like almost passing out.
King Huepoe: Whoa there partner! Come on now, let's get you a nice cold one and sit ya down! Was a long day after all, huh?
You nod in agreement, letting him lead you over the the stands where you can get yourself something to drink and some rest. As you walk, you look back at the latter from the corner of your eye, you notice a single rock sitting in the top rung for the perfect score.
