Klifford scratched the back of his head. "Uh, I guess I'll give it a chance." He said. "What kind of test is it?"

The Duke chuckled merrily. "Fantastic, my good doctor. It is a simple and straightforward yet tricky test. You must provide the answers to five questions in sequence. You may consult the wretched banshee beside you for assistance on two of the five questions, but the final answer must be from your mouth alone. I will tell you on which question you may consult her. Otherwise, she is to remain silent."

Brandy rolled her eyes and said nothing.

The Duke flexed his baby arms and pointed at Klifford. "Now, for the first question! Imagine, if you will, that you happen to stumble upon a lever. There is a trolley coming, and the rail switches the path that the trolley will take. On the trolley's current path are five innocent civilians, and on the other is but one innocent civilian to whom you happened to be related. Now, the question is: do you pull the lever and allow the trolley to take the life of one person you share blood with, or leave it alone to remove five people from the planet?"

"A trolley problem, huh?" Klifford asks. "Well, obviously I'd want to save the life of my family member. But to save one person instead of five would be selfish. Then again you're some kind of weird bird demon so maybe you'd want me to kill the five people and be selfish. Hmm..."

The doctor thinks it over for a minute. "I'd pull the lever." He answers.

“D-demon?!” the Duke stammered. “Sir, I am a warrior of light and justice! Anyway, I digress. Your response is most interesting, you right cheeky bugger.

“Next question!” the small abomination screeched. “Assume you are happily married, if you aren’t already, for a moment. One night, at the local pub, an astonishingly attractive woman approaches you in an attempt to seduce you. Now, if nobody ever knew, aside from you and the woman, would you go with her? Not a soul would ever even think about it unless you brought it up to them. Your wife would be clueless.”

Klifford raised an eyebrow and looked over at Brandy for a moment. "Not the words I would have used to describe him." He said, before turning his attention back to the Duke.

"I wouldn't cheat." Klifford answered. "It doesn't matter if nobody else would find out. I still wouldn't do it."

Brandy simply shook her head at the bird, but seemed pleased with Klifford's answer. The Duke did, too.

"A most interesting answer... Next, question number three! What is it you value most in this life? It could be anything, material or otherwise. What people value says a lot about their character, a right cheeky fellow I once played a round of Connect Four with once said. Oh, and, if you haven't yet guessed, you may only ask for her help on the last two questions, since they are less personal."

"I'm not sure how these questions are helping you, to be honest. But that's an easy one. I value my family more than anything else in this world. I'd give anything just to see my wife and daughter one more time..."

"A truly noble answer... Now, for the fourth question! That woman is available to assist you now--"

Brandy opened her mouth to say something.

"--but may only speak when spoken to," the Duke finished. Brandy grumbled something incoherently. "Now, good doctor, what do you think my favorite color is?"

"Your favorite color...?" Klifford asked, a little surprised by the question.

He looked at Brandy again. "Do you have any ideas?"

Brandy thought for a moment before offering her opinion. "Well, if you ask me, he looks like the type o' fella to enjoy a nice shade o' blue. It's a color that's often associated with the military n' royalty, which sounds noble to me. 'Course, he could jus' be some oddball who likes chartreuse yellow or somethin'..."

Klifford nods. "Blue sounds good to me. I was thinking black or something myself, but you bring up a good point, Brandy."

"A stupendous answer! Blue was my mother's favorite color as well," the Duke congratulated. "Now, for the final question: if I obtain three watermelons, and my cheeky lad Scotty acquires thirty-four, and it's a rainy Tuesday in April, and you're holding your Nintendo 3DS upside down, what is the circumference of the Sun? Keep in mind that you are also travelling at thirty-seven miles-per-hour in a Ford F150 at 1 PM."

Klifford blinks. He looks over at Brandy.

"I don't think either of us are gonna know the answer to this question. And now that I think about it, I don't even really want to be a warrior for him in the first place." Klifford says. "I was just answering these questions because I was trying to distract myself. Do you think it'd be a bad idea to kick him? He's pretty small. It'd just be like kicking a football."

Brandy pondered the doctor's question for a moment, trying to size up the small bird. "Yeah, you could probably jus' do it. I doubt he could defend 'imself. Plus, he's already insulted me a bunch, so I don't care, really."

"W-what the Devil?!" the Duke screeched. "You must be joking! How... How could you even suggest such a thing?!"

The Duke turned to Klifford to see if he'd actually go through with it.

"Surely you jest?"

"If it helps I do feel kinda bad." Klifford said to the Duke. "These questions were a good distraction for me. But you were a pretty big jerk to my friend Brandy, so I guess I shouldn't feel that bad after all."

Klifford kicks the Duke like a football. Or at least he tries to. He never was that good at sports, after all.

The Duke shrieked upon being met with the force of Klifford's foot, which had sent him flying into the air. He bounced off of every surface he touched as though he were made of rubber, each ricochet speeding him up until he was nothing more than a motion blur.

What happened next could not have been foreseen. A loud ripping sound was heard before it seemed like reality had been torn open before them. Books floated into the air and the pair of Stars could feel gravity losing some of its influence. By this point, the Duke had ceased bouncing and stared up at the hole in the fabric of space-time. It was a swirling blue mess. His beady eyes went wide.

"No.. no please, mother! I can still succeed. Please let me continue my mission! I'll even include women this time!"

There were no words from the other side. Instead, a metallic and seemingly robotic claw emerged from the portal and grabbed the Duke, apparently choking him.

"Alright, Archibald, this is like, your third fuck-up in a row. You're coming home. I'm gonna just consider 'Operation: Ultimate Recruitment' a dud. Could've fucking come up with a better name than that, anyway..." a female voice said from the other side. It sounded a bit nasally. "Go back to your killing game, dorks."

With that, Archibald was pulled back to his apparent home world, screaming all the way. The portal sealed back up and gravity returned to normal, causing any floating books to slam on the ground. Brandy was left looking around. She could swear that the voice sounded familiar to her somehow, but she dismissed it.

"Um, well Kliff, I ain't really got a clue how or why what jus' happened happened the way it did, but, um, I'm jus' gonna go lie down. I'm feelin' a bit exhausted. Maybe I'll go find a way to make pancakes later or somethin'. I dunno. Adios!"

The treasure hunter left the library in a rush, unknowingly walking over a card from a children's trading card game that fell from the portal when it closed.
