Mysterious Labyrinthia

???:
............ ...Luke... Wake up, my boy.




Luke:
Uh, umm... Eh? Professor?

Layton:
Good. I'm glad to see you're awake.

Luke:
Ugh...yeah. Glad to be back...

Layton:
Are you feeling all right?

Luke:
Um, yeah, I'm fine. A bit drowsy though... I guess I just fell asleep all of a sudden. ............Ah! Wait, now I remember! Professor, what happened with the witches?! And...where exactly are we?!

Layton:
Well, Luke, I've only just woken up myself. We've been here in this horse-drawn wagon since I awoke.

Luke:
H-how did we end up asleep in a wagon?!

Layton:
That is something we must now find out. First of all, where are we? And secondly, where are we being taken? There's another passenger over there. Let's start by asking her.

Luke:
Good thinking, Professor!

Horse-Drawn Wagon

Wagon Driver:
Hee-hee, so you finally woke up, did you? I was wondering what to do with you both... I was starting to think you'd never wake up.

Luke:
E-excuse me, but...where is it that we're going?

Wagon Driver:
Me-oh-my! You didn't get into this wagon without knowing where it's headed, did you?

Layton:
Well, in truth, we only just became aware that we were in here. Until just a moment ago, we were at Tower Bridge, in London. I'm afraid we have no recollection of having boarded this wagon.

Wagon Driver:
Hee-hee, you certainly say the strangest things. You're both still half asleep, aren't you?

Luke:
Half asleep...? Of course not!

Wagon Driver:
As far as I remember, you've both been in this wagon from the very start.

Luke:
There's no way that's right! And besides...

Wagon Driver:
Now, now, don't get so worked up, sonny. You'll upset the other passengers. I know nothing about the two of you, except from what I've seen. My job is just to carry my passengers... ...to that town.

Layton:
A town, you say...?

Wagon Driver:
Well looky here, it's just come into sight! Why not take a peek out, hmm?

Layton:
............




Knight:
Captain! All present and accounted for, sir!

Captain:
Ahem! I want you to keep it in mind, men, that the peace of this town is in your hands. Never forget that no matter what happens, the people look to you to keep the peace! We proud knights of the order will always protect the people!

Knight:
Yes, sir! For honour and glory!

Cecil & Petal (Cecil):
Captain, Captain!

Captain:
Hmm...? What can I do for you, my little ones?

Cecil & Petal (Cecil):
I want to join the order of knights and patrol the streets like you!

Captain:
Ha ha! That's an upstanding ambition, lad. Perhaps, when you're a little bigger...

Cecil & Petal (Cecil):
Yes, sir! I'll do my very best to grow up as soon as I can, sir!

Captain:
Hmm. I like your spirit, young man! Be seeing you.

Cecil & Petal (Petal):
Oh, you look so pleased with yourself! You don't really think a weakling like you could join the order of knights, do you?

Cecil & Petal (Cecil):
Hey, that's not a nice thing to say. Every boy wants to be a knight...

Bardly:
Oh, what can he do, For one sweet as you? This bardly bard called Bardly♪

Muffet:
Could you sing me a wittle song? Something womantic, to melt my heart?

Bardly:
Oh, fair maiden, the pleasure is mine. A worthy song, for a love such as thine♪ Oh, the love in your heart, And the love in your head, Is full and warm, like freshly baked bread♪

Muffet:
...Sweeeeet!

Luke:
P-Professor! Look at those people over there! They're all wearing period costumes. I've never seen that in London!

Layton:
Hmm...you're right, Luke. This town would appear to resemble the one we saw pictured in that book... Although I'm somewhat puzzled as to how we have ended up here...

???:
There is nothing strange about any of this...

Layton:
............!

Luke:
Ah! You're the passenger from the wagon.

???:
The fact that we are here now is a predetermined turn of events.

Luke:
Wh-what do you mean?! We were just brought here from outside...

???:
This "outside" of which you speak... Just what exactly are you referring to?

Luke:
Huh? Well, I mean London, of course...

???:
There is no such place. Nor is there any such thing as an "outside". Not here...not in Labyrinthia...

Layton:
............! Labyrinthia...

Luke:
Wh-what?! You mean this is really Labyrinthia? Even so, that doesn't mean that London doesn't exist! If we went back the way we came, we'd be bound to come across it eventually!

???:
If you don't believe me, then why don't you take a look with your own eyes?

Luke:
Ahh?! Professor! The gate is gone!

Layton:
............?!

Luke:
The gate we came through was right behind us, wasn't it?

Layton:
Hmm...yes, it certainly was there.

Luke:
So if that's the case, why does no one around here seem surprised? Seeing such a big gate disappear like that... H-hey...where did she go?

Layton:
This is most perplexing...

Luke:
What's going on here...?

Layton:
If this really is Labyrinthia, then... Could it be that we have somehow ended up inside that book...?

Luke:
You mean the book Espella was showing us, don't you? The Historia Labyrinthia...

Layton:
That's right, Luke. Do you recall what happened to us at Tower Bridge?

Luke:
Well, I remember when that book started glowing. But after that, I'm totally blank...

Layton:
............

Luke:
Professor...you don't think we've somehow been pulled inside that book, do you?

Layton:
It's a bit early to be drawing conclusions just yet, my boy. There are quite a few people around here. Let's start off by asking a few questions.

Main Street

Tuggit:
This is it! He's about to appear! This is the moment I've been waiting for ever since I began queuing this morning!

Muffet:
I can hear their footsteps! He'll be here any moment now! And that means Inquisitor Barnham will be with him! Oh, I just can't wait to see Zacky-wacky up cwose!

Mailer:
Come on! Come on! We're waiting! Once it's over, I have to get back and finish my deliveries... Come on!

Bardly:
We people have gathered, In the street we all wait. Waiting to see him, to learn of our fate♪

Allan:
Dearie me... Look at them all, clamouring for a peek! It's as if this has never happened before... It would be more fitting and proper to wait with calmness and solemnity, to show our respect. I always have trouble mingling with the common masses...

Mary:
Now, now, out of the way! Let a lady and her goat see!

Snowy:
Baaa!

Captain:
Attention, you rabble! Keep that line straight there!

Luke:
It looks like it's beginning at last, Professor!

Layton:
Yes, you appear to be right, my boy. The level of excitement is remarkable.

Mary:
Hey, you! You with the tall hat! I can't see a thing!

Layton:
I beg your pardon, madam. What might be the occasion?

Mary:
What are you saying?! I've never heard such nonsense... And to think that he is about to appear!

Luke:
Sorry, but when you say "he", who exactly do you mean?

Mary:
Surely you two can't be serious! Why, it's him, of course! The town's creator...the Storyteller himself!

Layton:
The Storyteller...

Luke:
Huh?! The creator of Labyrinthia?!




Luke:
Wow, that was amazing, wasn't it, Professor?

Layton:
Indeed. But, something would appear to be amiss...

Muffet:
Eeek! This stowy is too howwible!

Tuggit:
Without a doubt, this is terrible...

Mailer:
Th-this...doesn't look good. Today, I'll finish up my deliveries and go home early!

Luke:
Up until a moment ago everyone was so excited... But now that the parade has passed, the mood here seems totally different.

Layton:
They all seem to be afraid of something.

Luke:
Yes, it's very strange... Ah! Professor, there's one of those sheets of paper over there.

Layton:
That must be one of the sheets that the knights were throwing to the crowd. The problem seems to be related to what is written on those sheets of paper.

Luke:
Hang on, I'll pick one of them up. This doesn't look like a typical letter or anything like that...

Layton:
It's hard to imagine what could be so terrible... Let's start by giving it a read through.

Luke:
Okay, Professor!

Story Fragment added to Items.




The fearsome witch moved deeper into the moonlit wood, casting a deathly shadow as she passed between the trees. And when the two young companions stepped into the darkness of the wood, they were drawn into her magic fire, and their lives were consumed in its flames.




NEW MYSTERY
The Storyteller

After finding themselves in Labyrinthia, the professor and Luke saw the parade of the town's creator, the Storyteller. But on reading the Story that was distributed to them, the townsfolk became afraid.
The horrific Story on the piece of paper described how two young companions would be burned to death by a witch.




Luke:
What could that mean? A witch again?! And what about where it says, "their lives were consumed in the flames"?

Layton:
Luke, let us cast our minds back to what Espella said in London... I seem to recall her mentioning that those witches had followed her from Labyrinthia.

Luke:
So that would mean...that the witches we saw in London really were from this town... The witch in this story... Do you think she's the one from before?

Layton:
It's still too early to say. But at any rate, this seemingly prophetic story, is rather disturbing...

Muffet:
I onwy came here to see Inquisitor Barnham! And this...this stowy is what I get! Oh my, what bad wuck this is!

Tuggit:
Oh no-no-no! Things had been so peaceful, and now the witch is to strike once again... What a fearful world we live in.

Mary:
What a horrible story! I can't stay here any longer. I'm heading straight back to the market stall, where I can be with my lovely little goats!

Layton:
Well, it seems that what's written here is indeed the reason for all this unrest.

Luke:
It's definitely a little ominous... But it's only a story, isn't it?

Muffet:
It's pwecisely because it's the Stowy that we're all so afwaid! Don't you even know that much?

Tuggit:
Without fail... Whenever a witch appears, somebody dies!

Luke:
Even if what you say is true, there's no reason to be afraid. After all, it's just a story. It's hardly going to become a reality...

Muffet:
...What are you saying?!

Tuggit:
Yes, what do you mean by that?!

Luke:
Eh?

Muffet:
You're not impwying that you don't bewieve in the Stowy, are you?!

Tuggit:
No-no-no...no-no-no... Nooooooo!

Layton:
............

Tuggit:
You'll get your comeuppance for this!

Knight:
Hmm? Hey, you two! What's all the fuss about?!

Luke:
Us? Um, nothing...we're not making a fuss!

Captain:
What is it? Is something the matter?

Knight:
Captain! It's these two, sir! They're creating a bit of a disturbance...

Captain:
Well, well, it's you two... Causing trouble again, are you?

Tuggit:
Ah, Captain! These two here are claiming that the Story won't become a reality! How can they say such a thing?!

Captain:
What's that?! This simply can't be... You claim that you don't believe what the Storyteller writes? ............! Could it be that you two...?

No... It couldn't be...

A moment ago they were claiming to have seen a witch... Honestly, that's what they were saying!

Look, there are two of them! They could be the two in the Story!

The pair that gets killed by the witch... Well, they could be...

Even if they're not, they must have something to do with the witch...

Luke:
P-Professor...

Layton:
This atmosphere is somewhat unsettling...

Captain:
It appears my original instincts regarding you two were indeed well founded! You're clearly suspicious! Men, surround them!

Luke:
Uh-oh...

Layton:
...Easy, Luke!

Luke:
P-Professor! This isn't good... Perhaps we should make a run for it!

Layton:
Agreed...but running off blindly in any old direction is unlikely to prove successful... We're too unfamiliar with the streets of this town.

Captain:
Oi! I wouldn't think of running if I were you! Just give up peacefully.

Luke:
Professor...

Layton:
............




???:
...Mr Layton! ...Luke! Both of you...over here!

Layton:
............! That voice!

Luke:
Hang on, isn't that...

Layton:
The voice came from that back street over there... Come on, Luke...let's run!

Luke:
Okay, Professor!

Captain:
Oi, wait! Stop! Come back here! After them, men! They're getting away!

Knight:
Yes, sir! Captain!




Layton:
As I thought... It really was you, Espella.

Luke:
But...why? Why are you...?

Espella:
Shhh! I'll explain later... Please, just wait here quietly.

Luke:
...R-right.

Captain:
Where are they?! Which way did they go?!

Knight:
C-Captain, we seem to have lost them...

Captain:
What?! They must still be here somewhere! Find them!

Espella:
............

Layton:
It appears we've managed to elude them... But what now?

Luke:
We can't stay here... They're bound to find us sooner or later.

Espella:
Let's move elsewhere. If we keep to the back streets, we should be able to reach the square without being seen. Follow me!

Layton:
Okay. We're in your hands.

Espella:
Come on, this way! And keep quiet...




Layton:
That was rather too close for comfort. It seems you rescued us this time...

Espella:
It was nothing. I'm just glad you were both able to get away safely. But...what are you both doing here in Labyrinthia?

Luke:
We'd like to ask you the same question! What about you, Espella? What happened after we were separated in London? I remember you jumping aboard that cargo vessel... Did you have any trouble getting away?

Espella:
Well, I...uh...that is, I...

Layton:
Easy now, Luke. We mustn't bombard Espella with questions like that.

Luke:
I-I'm sorry, Espella...

Espella:
No, I'm the one who should apologise. I'm afraid it's just not very clear...

Layton:
You have no reason to apologise, Espella. But when you say it's "not very clear", what do you mean, precisely?

Espella:
Well, to be honest...I seem to be unable to clearly recall what happened...

Layton:
Hmm...is that so...? After we put you aboard that ship, we should have followed after you... But at any rate, I'm relieved to see that you're all right now.

Espella:
Yes, I am. Thanks to you both. It's good that we could meet again like this. I'm so happy to see you here!

Luke:
Too right! We're both very happy too, aren't we, Professor?

Layton:
We certainly are, Luke.

Espella:
Let me guess... You both came here to solve the puzzles of Labyrinthia, didn't you?

Luke:
Um, well, yes...something like that. Right, Professor?

Layton:
Actually, the truth of the matter is, we don't really know why we're here.

Espella:
Eh...?

Layton:
It seems as if... Well, it's almost as if we've been sucked right into that book's story.

Espella:
Sucked into...the Story?

Layton:
If it's okay with you, Espella, I'd like to ask you some questions about Labyrinthia.

Luke:
We can't really settle down here for a chat, can we? Those knights might find us again! We'll need somewhere to lie low for a while.

Espella:
............

Espella:
Ah, I know! If it's all right with you two...

Luke:
Yes?

Espella:
For now, Mrs Eclaire, the local bread maker, is kindly putting me up in her shop. If you don't mind, you're welcome to come to my room. I'm afraid it's only an attic room, so it's a little small.

Luke:
Really? I mean, are you sure that's okay? If they were to find us there, wouldn't that mean trouble for everyone at the shop?

Espella:
Not at all! You shouldn't even think like that. After all, it was you two who rescued me in London, wasn't it? So if there's anything I can do... You must let me help in whatever way I can!

Layton:
Espella... Thank you. Allow us to graciously accept your kind offer.

Espella:
Okay! Let's make our way there, while keeping an eye out for those knights. The bakery is on the eastern side of town.
