Interlude

Jumping past another two Koopa Troopers and stomping on yet a fourteenth Kamek's head, Mario sighted what could only be the door to Bowser's throne room. Decorated with purple velvet and bordered with solid gold, only a hall full of angry Goomba's stood in-between him and his goal. They charged at him, their eyes almost glowing red with rage. Mario jumped from one to the next, their heads acting like miniature trampolines to make Marios journey almost effortless. Within a minute Mario has pulling open the glossy door to the next room. He readied himself. Brushed down his overalls. Pulled his gloves up. Deep breath. He went in.

Empty.
