|1||[Research is tough! 2 -The Old Jungle-]
|2||I'm currently making my way through the innermost part of the Old Jungle. Surrounded on all sides by trees, which fills me with absolute dread. And fear. I can't tell when or where an attack might spring from...|
Plus, this inhumane heat and humidity! I'm felling sticky all over! I'm convinced this is the worst place on the face of the planet!
|3||My base camp is nestled in deep among the trees, and a river flows through the middle of it all. The local Vespoids and Hornetaurs are out, as are some very rare, small-type bugs, but I'm not here for these tiny things. I'm after the biggest insect monster of them all, the Vespoid Queen!|
|4||Why am I after it? Because it's the QUEEN! It's got the radiance of a Thunderbug and the prismatic beauty of a rainbow! The desire to find one rages within me like the torrent of a mighty river, cascading into a waterfall, and out the mouth of a cave. Ooh, I'm all nervous lying in wait as I gulp down my Hot Drink in one go.|
|5||By the way, this cave is rich in Ores and really rare herbs, I've gathered some for you!~|
Anyway, all of a sudden, my woman's intuition tells me there's something outside. I ran outside post-haste and there was the Queen herself! Brilliant rainbow wings and a golden thorax... I was finally face to face with one!
|6||"Oh, eww!!" I said out loud by accident, and I know it's hard to believe, but please hear me out, Instructor! It was this gigantic bug as big as a Yian Kut-Ku flying around and it was just... Gross. Seriously, who the heck said because it's a queen it had to be beautiful?|
...Wait, that was me, wasn't it?
|7||Yes, I know, I can't let myself succumb so easily, and unsubstantiated research is the worst of the worst kind. I think I'm beginning to understand your favourite saying.|
I'm going to stand strong and be ready for anything that may arise from now on. I hope you'll look forward to my next report!
