"We need you again, Lily."

"Yeah, sure, Goofy, but...that was...a long time ago."

"Shut up, Jiminy, adults can use words like that." I stabbed the Keyblade into the sand for a moment.

"Uncle Walt used to say..." Donald put in hesitantly, "...adults are just kids grown up anyway."

"...Okay. I'll...I'll try."

"That's the spirit!"

You are afraid of being indecisive.

You want to broaden your horizons.

Your adventure begins at midday.
