“And Stage Twenty is cleared!” announced the commentator, J.J. Banana – or rather, his virtual avatar, an animated banana in a blue baseball cap who danced around the screen while waving a pair of maracas – one of the inanities of the game's showmanship that irritated DeBose, “Let's look at who we have left. Of our fifteen surviving contestants, ten of them hit the wall and three of them ran out of time! The only two who are still in the game, ladies and gentlemen, running head to head, its DeBose Schumizer and Garian! And that really was a tight one, Garian!” “And Stage Twenty is cleared!” announced the commentator, J.J.

-Geez, thanks for the vote of confidence, Garian thought to himself. Things will be different soon. I'll prove myself. Prove that the world of Love Love Mini Racer can change too, that even the greatest sportsman suffers defeat eventually. Well... it'll probably be me that old Banana is horribly biased towards in the commentary instead but at least things will be different. Just for a few seconds.+//

-I can't just go round and round the same track forever...+//I can't just go round and round the same track forever...//
Garian was jolted back to reality as the walls of the next stage slid into place and the starting bell sounded. It was a circle this time – a fairly simple maze, except that there were a hundred spheres to collect, not the usual ten to twenty or so, very little space between them and some of them were precariously close to the wall. The time limit was harsh, too. Garian was jolted back to reality as the walls of the next stage slid into place and the starting bell sounded.

Garian dashed forward, tugging on both reins to pull his pyramid behind him. Their eyes followed each other as they met in the middle, then they both focussed on the incoming wall as they parted, back into the darkness...

“DeBose? Not here, I should hope.” said the other man, shuddering, “As for where you are, I'll give you a clue... where do we always goddamn end up? Come on, we're almost out of time. While I'd love to sit on my ass and watch this boat sink, I'm apparently not allowed to, according to the annoying voice in my head, and neither are you.” “DeBose?

-“Boat? Sink? I...” he ran after the other man who looked eerily like himself – they could be twins (why does this scare me so much?) - still unsure what the hell was going on but imbued with a vague understanding that it would go badly for him if he didn't move quickly. They jumped over some sliding platforms that Garian could only assume went out of the boat on the other end and powered the oars using a piston system or something. They moved quickly and the jumps were long but it was no more terrifying to him than some of the tighter bends when he couldn't slow down because the timer was on its last ten seconds and he was ten spheres behind quota.+“Boat?

“I have almost as little clue what's going on as you do but I think it'll become clearer once you're off this boat.” said the man, “Help me with this crate.” “I have almost as little clue what's going on as you do but I think it'll become clearer once you're off this boat.” said the man, “Help me with this crate.”
