Tramennis: Yes, of course.
Take the call, Sire.
I've a charge to assemble.
Tramennis: Lloyd! What have you done?
Lloyd: What have I done? What could I do?
What could I do?
Saved for how long?
Charlie: King Slately.
It's been a while for you and me...
Although I did talk with your son Prince Tramennis this morning.
Slately: I know. And we've done the work you requested, Charlie.
In fact, I did it personally.
Slately: We now stand in urgent need of immediate payment for those services, if you please.
Charlie: You don't look well, Your Highness.
You don't really look like yourself.
Slately: Yes, I... just received some rather difficult news.
But that needn't concern you.
Charlie: It was a joke. Cruel one, I'll admit. But I'm saying, let's not play games right now, King For a Day. Yes, I'm ready to help you.
I've saved Jetstone twice in this battle, and I'll do it again. But don't be cagey with me; time is short.
Yours, in particular.
Charlie: Yes it is true, and yes I do know, and this conversation will go much faster if you'll assume I know everything, and don't ask me how.
Did you read the dossier I sent you?
Slately: That was not apparent from what you sent us.
Charlie: He's about to wipe out your side if you don't do something about it.
Your Fate is already sealed.
When Jetstone's next turn starts, you will vanish.
But in a way, that frees you.
For this one day, you can change the Fate of the whole world.
Slately: What must I do? To save Jetstone?
Tell me, Charlie, and I will believe you.
Charlie: It's simple.
Charlie: We kill the fat man.
