#693: Children's Fantasy
[[Kid is sitting on the ground with his chin in his hand.]]
Kid: I’m such a loser–
[[Princess sticks her head through a portal.]]
Princess: Come quickly, young one!
Kid: Holy crap, a portal!
Princess: My kingdom needs you!
[[He falls through.]]
[[We see him on horseback, helmeted wielding a sword. There’s a castle on the horizon and two moons in the sky.]]
[[Kid, with helmet and sword, stands before King, Princess, and another warrior. Princess is holding out a ring.]]
King: You’ve saved our kingdom and found your self-confidence. Now it’s time to return home. Goodbye, young hero!
Princess: Take this ring to remember us!
[[Kid stands alone, holding the ring.]]
Kid: Well, I guess I spend the rest of my life pretending that didn’t happen or knowing that everyone I love suspects I’m crazy.
Kid: This’ll be a fun 70 years.
