Before I show you the result of my project, let me put a story to make sense of it all. Storytime below:
It's Valentine's Day in the Octarian neighborhood. Coral and Kelp had plans for their date tonight, but an important mission came up as well, throwing a wrench into their plans. General Anemone called the two to meet him in the afternoon.
"I need to talk to you two about a very important mission tonight." General Anemone says to Coral and Kelp.
"Why does it have to be tonight, General Anemone?" Coral asks.
"Because I heard of a rogue Inkling militia from Inkopolis who were planning to raid Mako Mart for supplies to attack our neighborhood. Not to worry, because I already told the law enforcement from Inkopolis about the one who organized this militia and they had thrown her in prison, now we just need to stop her militia from causing damage." General Anemone explains.
"But why would anyone attack our neighborhood like this?" Kelp asks a follow-up question.
"That, I don't know, but regardless, it's better to stop this group before they even reach the door. This will reduce their morale into nothing, knowing their leader is already in prison." General Anemone answers Kelp's question.
"But today is Valentine's Day! How are Kelp and I supposed to have a romantic night with this mission now getting in the way?" Coral protests.
"Please uncle, can you send some other Octarians to take care of this?" Kelp tries to get her uncle to understand.
"Unfortunately, not tonight. And I'm sorry Coral, but I can't postpone this mission." General Anemone is not convinced.
With nothing else to tell General Anemone, the Octoling couple accepts the mission.
Later at night, Coral and Kelp arrive at Mako Mart, waiting to fight the supposed militia coming to raid the supermarket. Coral holds his Octo Shot while Kelp holds her Carbon Roller. In the meantime, Coral and Kelp discuss how to make this night romantic.
"Since we had no other choice, what can we do to make the best of this?" Coral asks, hoping to salvage the night.
"I don't know, but I'm sure we will figure it out afterward." Kelp replies.
Just as they were having the discussion, the raiders arrived, already shooting ink at the Octoling couple.
"Whoa!" Coral reacts as he barely dodges the ink shot at him.
"This must be the group my uncle told us about!" Kelp says in the heat of battle.
Without saying further words to each other, the Octoling couple started to use their weapons against the group of rogue Inklings coming their way.
Despite the Inkling numbers, Coral and Kelp managed to splat some of the Inklings and kept the rest away from the doors. This is when law enforcement consisting of Inklings dressed in police attire arrived to arrest the militia.
Before long the rest of the rogue Inklings were arrested for attempted robbery.
"Can you tell us why you were here, sir?" a male cop asks Coral.
"We were sent here by my commander to stop a raid. I'm glad you guys came to help us out." Coral explains then thanks the cop.
"I remember talking to an Octohurler commander with an eyepatch about this, was that your commander?" the Inkling cop asks a follow-up question.
"Yes, that's definitely him." Coral answers.
"Okay then, you're both free to go." the cop says to Coral and Kelp.
"Hey, can we go inside Mako Mart for a moment?" Kelp asks the cop.
"We will leave very soon, so make sure to lock the doors when you leave. I trust that you two will keep this place safe. Now remember, don't take anything from there, we will know if you did." the cop warns.
"I octuple promise that we will leave everything in there as is." Coral replies.
After the talk, the police leave, taking the rogue militia with them. Finally alone, Coral and Kelp take this opportunity to have a romantic night. They go inside Mako Mart to look for the most romantic spot in the supermarket.
"Is this a good spot?" Coral asks.
"Oh, this is perfect!" Kelp answers very excitedly.
The two kiss as the first thing they do for the night.
The End, and happy (early) Valentine's Day everyone!
