The Stolen Turnabout

The time is 1:00 AM.

Beep... Beep... Beep... Beeeeeeep...

Detective! We made it!

Whew... What a relief. Glad the jewel is still safe.

Ho ho! You said it, pal. It musta been our rock solid security that scared him off!

Would you mind opening the safe just to double check?

Aaaaaaaaaah! We've been had!

O-Out front! Guards! Turn on the searchlights!

Aha ha ha ha ha ha ha... Better luck next time, gentlemen!

Aha ha ha ha ha ha ha... Excuse me, but I'm afraid I must be leaving now!

We shall meet again... When the next moon is full! Aha ha ha ha ha ha ha...

Maya:
Hey, Nick! Get a load of this! Hey, are you listening to me!? You can clean the toilet later! This is important!

Phoenix:
*sigh* What are you freaking out about now?

Maya:
Hey hee. Today will be the last time you talk to me that way!

Phoenix:
Huh?

Maya:
We're about to hit the big time!

Phoenix:
"Big time"? And what do you mean by "we"? You don't mean you and me are...?

Maya:
Ha! Don't be silly. I'm talking about me and Pearly, of course!

Pearl:
Hello. It's a pleasure to see you again, Mr. Nick!

Phoenix:
Pearls! You haven't changed a bit! Wait... What are you doing here anyway?

Pearl:
Hey hee. Haven't you heard, Mr. Nick? Here! Take a look at this!

Phoenix:
(What's this...? Some kind of poster?) Kurain Village... Isn't that...?

Maya:
That's right. It's our hometown... Pearly and mine, that is.

Phoenix:
What's this about "treasures" from the boonies?

Maya:
Ha ha ha. Very funny. You can laugh all you want... But you'll be singing another tune tonight!

Phoenix:
Tonight? What about tonight?

Pearl:
The "Treasures of Kurain" exhibit doesn't actually start until next week, but... ...the promoter sent us some special VIP entry passes!

Maya:
That's why I dressed up extra special today! What do you think, Nick?

Phoenix:
(Heh. Same Maya. Different Day.)


Phoenix:
This young lady here is Maya Fey... The younger sister of Mia Fey... ...My friend and mentor. I first met her two years ago... I was working on the case surrounding Mia's death, and ever since then...

Maya:
I've been the one who's been keeping this law office afloat from behind the scenes.

Phoenix:
Actually that's just a cover for her true identity... In reality, she's a spirit medium, and a bit of a shady character.

Maya:
Hey! Who are you calling "shady"!?

Phoenix:
And this little girl is Pearl Fey, but I usually call her "Pearls". She's Maya's cousin and a spirit medium in training herself.

Pearl:
I know I'm a bit young, but I want to help in any way I can, Mr. Nick!

Phoenix:
Kurain Village is the home of the mysterious Kurain Channelling Technique. And Maya here is the daughter of the Kurain School of Channelling's Master. ...I know it sounds ridiculous, but it's no joke. I've seen her power with my own eyes... It's the real thing alright.


Maya:
Earth to Nick! How long are you going to make two gorgeous women like us wait!?

Pearl:
Yes, Mr. Nick! I can't wait any longer! I want to see the exhibit!

Phoenix:
(*sigh* Looks like I don't get a choice here. Might as well head on out...)

Lordly Tailor
Main Exhibit Hall

Phoenix:
("Lordly Tailor"... The city's fanciest and most exensive department store. Treasure Exhibit, huh... I have to admit I'm pretty impressed.)

Maya: Wow... This is awesome!

Phoenix:
Yeah... You can make even the cheapest junk look great... It all depends on how you display it.

Pearl:
Oh! They even have the dusty old hanging scroll that was in the Fey Manor storeroom!

Maya:
Oh yeah, I remember scribbling on it when I was a little girl!

Phoenix:
(On a family heirloom...!?)

Maya:
Say, Nick... The person in charge of this exhibition is waiting for us in the basement warehouse.

Phoenix:
Alright... (I guess we should go and say hello...)



October 11
Lordly Tailor
Basement Warehouse
Phoenix:

(Yup. This is a basement warehouse alright...)

Pearl:
Th-This place is scary... I feel like a monster could jump out at any time...

Maya:
Don't be scared, Pearly! I'll protect you!

???:
...Oh... ...Mr. Wright.

Maya:
Eeeeeeeek!! A monster! You were right!

Phoenix:
(Huh? A monster...?)

???:
Good evening. ...It's good to see you again.

Phoenix:
Y-You... I know you...

???:
Ha ha. Nice to see you again too, little miss.

Pearl:
Ah! H-Hello!

Maya:
Is she a friend of yours, Nick? ...And how do you know her, Pearly?

Andrews:
Nice to meet you. I'm Adrain Andrews. I'm in charge of the promotion and planning for this Treasure Exhibit. I'm also responsible for the security arrangements

Maya:
Oh, um... N-Nice to meet you.

Phoenix:
(Adrian sure has changed since we last met...)

Andrews:
So this is the warehouse. The really valuable exhibit items are still stored away in here.


After talking and examining gold statue:

Andrews:
Oh, look! It's already 8:00! Have you all eaten yet?

Phoenix:
Um, well actually...

Andrews:
I've already made a reservation at the restaurant on the 12th floor. Why don't we all dine together?

Maya:
Ooh! I like the sound of that! "Dine"... It sounds so fancy!

Pearl:
I'll have the "Kid's Lunch"!

Maya:
Ha ha ha. Pearly, it's dinner, not lunch. Why don't you go for it and really eat your fill with a "Kid's Dinner"?

Pearl:
OK! In that case, one "Kid's Dinner" for me!

Andrews:
Ha ha. Shall we head upstairs, then?


Phoenix:
After that pleasant evening, all that remained was to wait for the exhibition's opening. It was wonderful seeing Ms. Andrews looking so happy. None of us could have imagined... That the very next day, something terrible would happen...

Maya:
N-Nick! This is terrible! ...What the--!? You're cleaning the toilet again!? I never knew you were such a toilet freak!

Phoenix:
Gimme a break, would you? My brain just hit the snooze button for the fifth time...

Pearl:
Um... I'm going to turn on the TV!


Announcer:
...We've got an update on the recent treasure heist! Based on clues found at the scene of the crime, authorities have announced... that they believe it was the work of the renowned phantom thief, Mask☆DeMasque!

Phoenix:
...M-Masque the Mask...?

Announcer:
According to a spokesperson, Lordly Tailor received a threat letter some days ago. This is the fifth heist by the phantom thief, who only targets rare treasures.

Phoenix:
L-Lordly Tailor...!?

Maya:
Well, Nick!? What are you going to do!? Don't you dare go back to scrubbing the toilet!

Phoenix:
Treasure...? Lordly Tailor...? You don't think...!?

Maya:
Yes! Now, get up, Nick! It was stolen! By Mask☆DeMasque! Our most valuable treasure... The Kurain Sacred Urn was STOLEN!!

Phoenix:
Whaaat!?
